Guess i dont remember asking for any opinions on an easy job...low stress doesnt mean easy....
I wonder how someone with autism could be a nurse.
I concur with HouTx. And just to clarify, 'clinicals' are not really clinicals in an Ed program. If you want to focus on academia, you would be student-teaching, which would likely include following a professor during his/her clinical rotations with their own students. If you are interested in Staff Ed, you would follow an educator in his/her clinical setting. Those were the options my program (not online) offered as their practicum. Any school that did not require a practicum would out you at a disadvantage for job placement in the future. On the bright side, when I had to do my practicum, the hours were very doable. It is nowhere near the requirements for undergrad or NP. And many schools (that you would potentially be doing student teaching for) are very flexible (many options for day, evening, maybe even weekend clinicals/lectures). You won't be there every hour that the students are.
Bad mom here: last year my daughter was carrying around an expired inhaler, needed it, used it, didn't get (enough) relief, one to the nurse, and I got reamed by the nurse! She is in HS, has orders to carry her own, and barely ever needs it! So I have to say, there's something to be said for the nurse having full control of this stuff. I have also worked as a camp nurse, so I have been on the other side of this. You'd think it would have made me more cognizant of this as a parent: NOPE.
I have to say, I applaud you guys for having to deal with the likes of me (and other moms).
I think you're the one that wanted to be an ICU nurse.
Boy, you're in for a ride!
Break out the wipes, ladies. We're getting a GI bleed .... Smell that sweet metal aroma? That's a GI bleed.... Nothing like the smell of sweet iron to wake you up at 6AM
