    Ok, I agree somewhat?...
    But I'm a crusty ole bat with a lot of multidimensional critical care and " non bedside" experiences




    Nursing education has changed, devolved vs evolved...... Boy I know I just opened a can of worms.....

    But back in the day, just 18hrs from my BS in biology, I chose a hospital based " ole school" diploma program....

    I don't know I know the debates between " ole school" diploma programs.....and today's fluffed up critical Thinking, BSN, ADn programs...... It takes a new RN graduate 1-1.5 years to be a safe nurse...


    I'm probably a little arrogant, but, I have " time in grade" to prove my feelings....... There is not enough hands on, clinical experience....in today's nursing education....to facilitate, the reduced stress and very competent new graduate as a safe practioner.....

    All, I can relate to, I'm sure a lot of folks on this board are tired of hearing my crowing.....

    Is that I "graduated" at 11 am on a Saturday in June of '72..... And went to work as charge nurse, at the same hospital I graduated from.....in CCU.......same day 3-11 charge nurse on that same CCU...

    Yes it is still FB, ? How getting proof you are attending........and there are skillfull hacking programs that " junk" gets posted appearing from you....you, and sometimes it can be very hurtful and object able.......this actually happened to me last week...... I just personally do not see how a live, in person, real 12 step program can be beat......just my humble opinion......
