    Hi All,

    It's been some time since I've been on this site. I'm highly insterested in Public Health (mainly as I would like to take my career into Lactation Consultation). Chamberlian University has a new degree, Masters of Public Health, ans as an alumni myself, I would get a huge discount on tuition.

    I've been going back and forth to determine if I should do the MSN-PH (Masters of Science with Public Health specialty) or the MPH (Masters of Public Health). They both tackle similar class, epidemiology, biostatistics, etc.

    1. Has anyone heard about the Chamberlain MPH (which the program itself is not accredited yet)?

    2. With taking my career towards Lactation Consultation, would it be better to go the MPH route or just do the MSN-PH route?

    Thank you all!

    If you read in my original post, I stated I was looking for extra money.... In addition to my full time job that I already have.

    I used to want to be a teacher prior to becoming a nurse. What you described, with constant feedback, grading assignments, on the computer most all days.... That sounds a lot like what I'm already doing in some ways now and truly enjoy it. Plus, that sounds like exactly what I would enjoy doing. I definitely do not think it's an easy job without it's challenges. I am a very organized person with great time management skills. I absolutely love educating and have had so many tell me that I have explain things very well.

    These are just a few things... But ultimately, I would like to attain my masters in nursing education.

    My co worker only has her BSN and she is teaching online. I found one school, but they require 3 years RN experience with only BSN.

    Hello all,

    I have been an RN for 2 years and could really use a little extras money plus teaching experience. I have a co worker that is teaching as an adjunct faculty, buy she had over 15 years and has been teaching for a long time.

    I also am thinking of getting my masters in nursing education, but would like to before an adjunct faculty to experience what it's like. I have taught students while on the floor and I absolutely loved it. The students even asked for me.

    Do you have any recommendations of where I can bed an online adjunct faculty with a BSN and 2 years medical/oncology/primary care experience?

    I forgot to mention that my RN license is in Arizona.

    Thank you.

    Quote from Tait
    I will be graduating from Grand Canyon University Online in Phoenix, AZ in less than six weeks. RN-MSN-Ed. While I often thought I would never get as much from an online program as I did from hands on, I was glad to be wrong. In the end I don't think it matters which route you go because you are mostly responsible for what you get out of it. I do believe having strong written communication skills is vital to online learning however, since that is the way you communicate who you are. I have created several networks while in school, and the benefit is they are from all over the country
    Are you going to GCU full time or part time? How many hours of study/coursework would you say you do per week?

    I just received the email stating I've gotten accepted into Frontier Nursing University Class 1101 I'm super excited! Now, just to save up some of my money to pay for the Frontier Bound really quickly.Who else got accepted?

    Please, if anyone else can give me some advice, that would be great. I'm now starting to think about completely different careers at this point, which would be painful to have these student loans I'm paying on for a career I'm no longer working. I am reaching out here before I make a horrible decision.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi everyone,

    It's been nearly one year on the med-surg floor at the VA. I will tell you that I am SO burnt out. I know I needed this year of experience, but with the high patient loads with each shift and the drama between the staff, and the high death rate, I am just done with this floor nursing. I knew in the very beginning that I would never like floor nursing, but now I'm really disliking it even more. Plus the scheduling is horrible. I have small children and about once or twice a month, I am scheduled for night shift. If I don't have a sitter, then I have no choice but to call in. So, I can feel that it is definitely time for me to change. But with only 1 year of RN experience, what could I possibly change to??? There are not any other open positions right now at the VA. I would like to get into maybe the clinic, but they require 2 years of acute care experience.

    I'm just stuck and want out now. I'm so stressed out, I've noticed my family being on the receiving end of my stress. It's not a good thing any longer. I applied for NP school, but in the meantime, I need to work somewhere. Any advice for me in my situation?

    Thanks so much!

    That was the same email I received when my application was complete back in August. I agree, not much time for travel or even scheduling time off for work. But we do what we need to do for one of the best programs!

    Hi. Would you mind copying the email here from the IT guy? I spoke to a lady in IT. Can't remember her name and she said that it is outdated as they understand that not everyone can afford an iPad, etc. The unfortunate part is that if it truly is required, we must bring it to Frontier Bound.... Therefore, we have only a month or 2 to save and purchase one from when we get out acceptance letter. Oh well. The life of technology in a rather tough economy.

    I'd like to see exactly what he wrote though. Thanks.

    Yay. At least I'm not the only one.... Let me know if you hear anything and I'll do the same.

    Yes, I agree.... This wait is somewhat difficult.... I'm always checking my email, their website, here, etc. lol
