    Ok, I did copy/paste the questions from the assignment. But I have to compile the information from 3 nurses and write a three-page report including my reactions and if it changes my perspective on anything.

    If anything, you're being lazy for such a short response
    Wow. That's kind of rude. We aren't going to do your homework for you. Get out there and do the legwork- find nurses in person and network with them- you never know when that may help you in the future. But I'm betting with that last response you've pretty much ruined any chances of getting help here.

    Far left me in charge of fetch, and I am not fetch. See? I cannot be left in charge! Unless the pink shoes I wore at work count?

    Did you take this question to your preceptor or another trusted coworker? We were not there and cannot assess- those that are there and can would be able to provide you with accurate feedback.

    Just like RNs have different entry levels, so too do NPs. There are MSN NP programs and DNP NP programs. Like with RNs pushing for BSNs, there is a push for NPs to have a DNP over an MSN.

    Doctorates, like MSNs, can also be non-clinical. Ph.D., Ed.D., etc.

    Have you reached out to the manufacturer of your lead? They may be able to guide you, especially as recommendations may vary by manufacturer. My facility actually has lead from multiple manufacturers, so depending on which lead you have determines the cleaning process- spot clean as needed, full wipe down monthly with peroxide wipe is what those with lead in my department will do. As for other departments, they will have their own policies to develop.

    If you will not be working in TX, you can always save money and steps by applying directly to Oregon for licensure. Oregon is not a compact state, so you do not have to reside there to obtain an Oregon nursing license.

    I completed an MSN education program with only OR experience. I work in staff development specific to the OR. As long as what you end up teaching is what you know, I see nothing wrong with it.

    I would expect more managerial questions with a few clinical scenario questions. Most aren't going to worry about how your skills are but how you will be as a manager.

    The only state that has mandated ratios for all types of hospital units is CA. You will find that this is 100% facility specific elsewhere. And while the facility may tell you the ratio is one thing, reality may be entirely different.

    Im sorry, but maybe I'm not making myself clear. I 'm already an LPN so I aware of the process of the NCLEX. What I'm most concerned about is once I apply for my RN license in Florida and pass, WILL I BE ABLE TO "TRANSFER"(NOT SURE if I'M USING THE CORRECT WORD) MY LICENSE TO MD, ALTHOUGH THE SCHOOL I WENT TO IS NOT APPROVED BY MD BON? KEEP IN MIND, I'VE ALREADY RECEIVED MY LICENSE THROUGH FL BON.
    I don't think you're understanding what the previous posters are trying to tell you. If you live in MD and will be working in MD, there is zero need to apply to the FL BON for licensure. The school that I attended is in the state I live in- but because I'm near the southern border, we had many many students from the state to the south. They did not apply for licensure in the state the school was in. They applied directly to their state of residence's BON. The only reason for a school to tell you that you can't do that is because they know their program will not meet the standards of the other state's BON. Any school that basically tells you not to apply to another state is a school that should be avoided. Additionally, you will need to put out additional funds by applying for licensure in FL and then turning around and paying to apply for licensure in MD. Why not attend a program where that is not a necessary step?

    Other red flags: the school's website ends in .com or .org (apparently they are transitioning the website) rather than .edu. A reputable program's website will end in .edu

    Bill collector information is listed right on the front page. The companies they list directly under that hardly sound like academic material with names like "divalicious book adventures"

    It is neither CCNE or ACEN accredited. While accreditation is voluntary, attending a non-accredited program can lead to issues with furthering your education. Additionally, some employers, especially in areas where new grads outnumber the open positions for them, require graduation from an accredited program.

    The correct term is endorse your license. For starters, go to the MD BON website and find the application for endorsement. It may list requirements, some of which may include work experience. Then contact the MD BON and find out if they will accept a graduate of the program for licensure, whether by exam or by endorsement from another state.

    If I remember correctly (50/50 chance) a room with no window isn't legally considered a "bedroom" they usually put one in just about any room that's not a closet. A four bedroom home appeals to more people than a three bedroom home does.
    I would absolutely LOVE a room with no windows. I have shades and black out curtains on mine and it's enough, but just barely.
    You would be correct in many states- codes dictate that bedrooms must have two points of egress- the door and another option, whether it's another door or a window.

    The parking garage where I work is locked down- you have to either have a transponder that opens the gate or swipe your badge. The only students who can get into the staff garage to park are also employees in another role.

    When I was a student, the vast majority of our clinicals took place a short distance from the school- and we were expected to utilize two options. Park at the satellite staff parking lot that was a mile from the hospital and ride the employee shuttle or park at the school and ride the school shuttle. We were not to be using the staff garage- especially as it was too small to even handle the actual employees. The only exception was when we did evening shift clinicals and no shuttles were running. We were each given a specialty sign by the hospital that had to be prominently displayed on the windshield that specified day of the week and hours we were permitted to be in the garage. There were quite a few students who ended up on probation with the program for not following the parking rules.

    Who's JACHO? Be advised- they don't like it when you use their old name.
