RT to RN Transition, not so easy! - Page 2Register Today!
- May 29, '09 by MAnders1405I know this post is almost a year old, but I have to ask, where did you find an accelerated nursing program that can be completed in one calender year?
- Dec 7, '11 by Sanchez RRTQuote from PageRespiratory!*Sanchez RRT* Isn't PA a Masters in Nursing? Are you saying that Ventgurl should continue her edu?Are you serious!?!?! That sounds like a terrible place to work, I assure you it's not like that everywhere. How does this happen? Why would your director stand for this?
I worked in a huge (1200 bed) teaching facility outside NYC, and it was difficult to draw a gas let alone intubate a Pt., but the ICU residents relied heavily on us (according to them anyway) for Pt. assesment and vent/pulmonary support. While it was difficult to perform a clinical task (outside of a circuit change LOL!), we had a great working relationship with many of the docs. You must be very frustrated working in a limited capacity like that, I would be as well thats for sure. NS sounds like a great option on your way to accomplishing your goal. Have you considered PA school as an alternative?

- May 26, '12 by FORTHELOVEOF!!!!That's insane, when we have codes the RT's run the nurses over and take control from the chest up, nurses work chest down! Even if it's not a code situation our RT's have a lot of autonomy!
