Ivy Tech Fall 2011 Waiting on THE letter - page 22

I've been reading "allnurses" for several years, never thinking I'd reach this point. So, I never registered. However, after 2-years of night classes the dream of nursing might become a reality. Now,... Read More

    I was just wondering, why are some people applying to more then 1 Ivy Tech campus? Wouldnt that be a heck of a drive for some people if they lived in Jeffersonville and got into the Indy campus?

    Also, if I took the TEAS test and didnt do very well in the math portion because honestly, I suck at math, and that is the absolute truth, but anyway, if I didnt do very well and didnt get into the RN program, does that automatically put me in to the LPN program, or is that something I would have to apply for too?

    Hi TGrider853...
    It would make sense, but my understanding is that's now how it works.

    Basically, you're kinda stuck with the person who takes you to the prom...even if someone else comes along. I believe you can apply to both and then chose, but you're not automatically moved into the LPN stack if RN doesn't work out. At least, that's my understanding. And I'm not an expert by ANY stretch...

    Hate to say this....but, your advisor/dean would have a better understanding of the specifics. No matter what happens, though, don't give up and try again!

    Math hit me hard, too. Of all the math classes we had to take...135 and everything, we didn't cover MIXED FRACTIONS! There were a bunch of them on my test...and I was just guessing. I could do stupid Quadratic formulas and mortgage loans...but, not mixed fractions. Made it into the program though...but, WAY too close for comfort.

    I have also been told how crucial a SNE position is when looking to land an RN job down the road.... especially only having your ASN upon graduation from Ivy Tech. I literally applied to 100 jobs at area hospitals over the past year with not as much as a phone call. I had a friend of a friend (that had a friend) that worked in HR at IU Health. Through that connection and a lot of "tactful stalking", I was able to get a position at Riley this summer. My advice, take ANYTHING you can get in a hospital network. My job description is just transporting patients and cleaning rooms, but trust me, it's much much more than that. Now that I'm 3 months into the position, I can truly say I feel much more confident about landing a SNE or PCI (patient care intern... this is what IU Health now calls SNE's) position.

    You need to be real careful when writing about your patients. You technically just committed a HIPPA violation and could lose your job for posting just that much information about a patient.
    Just curious if this is in fact a HIPA violation- The Hospital System was identified, but not unit, etc.- the poster's ID and pts ID (including any demographic information) was not disclosed. This is from a previous Allnurses post on HIPA:HIPAA regulated Patient identifiers include:* Account Numbers * Name(s) of relative(s) * Biometric identifiers * Names * Certificate/License numbers * Medical Record Number * Dates * Photographs and comparable images * Device identifiers * Postal Address * Email addresses * Social Security Number * Fax numbers * Telephone numbers * Health Plan Numbers * Vehicle identifiers including license plate numbers * IP address numbers * Web URL's * Any other unique identifying number, characteristic, or code Maybe not the smartest idea to post that much info, but technically not a violation, I think. Any thoughts?

    hm, i wondered as well if this was HIPAA violation. isn't there an entire thread on emergency room stories that contain posts with as little information as mine about their 'funniest/most ridiculous' patients? anyways, i'll be more careful.

    It really is. We actually used it as an example today in IU Health Central Nursing Orientation about what not to post on a public social networking site. The educator said that there is a team at IU Health that does nothing but search for this kind of stuff all day and try and track down the source. They take this stuff very very seriously. Look at it this way. What if that patient had been my relative and I read what you wrote and called the hospital to complain, which could easily happen. They would have no trouble finding out who the transporter was when this happened and then that person could, and probably would, be fired. It is just that easy.

    yes, i see your point and the point of others that have responded. i re-read what i had posted and really decided it was a bad decision on my part, so i had the administrator delete it. thanks for bringing this to my attention.
