    I started out on nights. It's a big adjustment mentally with those hours. But in all honesty it's a perfect shift to learn without being overwhelmed by all the day hustle and bustle. You'll do great. Good luck!

    I agree apply to both places. I did my ADN first. It was a very loooonnnnggggg wait to get in. I did all my non-nursing classes that were required to graduate first while I was waiting to get into the program. Then once I was accepted in all I had to worry about were the nursing courses!

    I later went back to school and got my BSN online while I was working. It was great!

    Seems to be a hot button for nurses in general, and pulls them in from the general site.[/QUOTE]

    Darn right this is a hot topic. At least for me it is. I get highly offended/annoyed when MAs get called nurses. Happens on a daily basis and it seems to be happening a lot from doctors!! I worked insanely hard to get my degree and would appreciate it if other people in the medical profession recognized that. I'm not saying I don't value my MAs. Would just be nice if the general public and others would notice the difference. One of the hospitals here have gone to color coding the staff so that the patient could be able to tell the nurse from the housekeeper and so on.

    I mix the biologics to be infused to our patients. I use dosage calculations on a daily basis!!!!!! We have a new nurse in our department who has a hard time figuring out how to get 25mg of Benadryl out of 50mg vial......... Yeah kinda scary right.
