    Hello,

    I am in need of help with starting my thesis. I'm a first semester in the Family NP school and we're starting the topic of our thesis (not the exact topic yet but narrowing down a few ideas with the topic of our choice). I'm highly interested in Palliative/Hospice Care. Our thesis has to be built around Primary Care Practice.

    I am having a hard time bridging the gap between how Palliative/Hospice care in relation to Primary Care and how to put that into a thesis topic I can write about. I am not looking for direct answers but rather ideas that I can get some light from.

    I've done a few search and the only thing I can find much of in relation to Primary care is Palliative/Hopsice Care referall from primary care providers.

    Insights? Suggestions?? Please let me know what you think.

    Thank you!

    Hello ALL.

    I just recently started on a NICU unit and had just a BRIEF overview on the 20% rule of medication administration. Do all NICU units use this rule???? I am very confused as I am trying to work on some problems right now. All the diluting and etc!! If the syringe size is 1 mL, minimum accuracy is 0.2 mL.

    Will someone please try to explain this to me or be kind enough to share an example?

    I am very fortunate to have been offered a position in pediatric hem/onc/bmt. Wondering if anyone else will be joining me in the training program for this unit! Good luck everyone.
    Congrats KickPushCoast! What's your secret (if you have any -- Tips, etc)?? Thanks and congrats again!

    GPA was 3.9 but to be honest, they are looking for more than just GPA. Just as you are looking for something to get out of the program, they look for how students will contribute/better the program--if this makes sense. Currently the BSN-DNP program is only held on the main campus so I go up there once every week or every other depending on the semester
    Thank you so much for the reply! Once every week or every other is not bad at all. What I would really like to know and forgot to ask is, how is your work schedule like, in regards to the workload of the BSN-DNP program? Are you working full time/part time? I would like to know so I can have an idea of a work-school schedule.

    Thank you!

    I'm just about to finish my first year and while it's been tough, I am really happy with my choice. Plus, my cohort is amazing.
    That is great! I'm glad you didn't actually listen to your nurse manager on this one. Would you be able to tell me some of your stats (GPA, etc) and are you doing this program through a regional campus or are you actually in SF? Thanks!

    Anyone hear from PICU yet? And just to clarify, 10 CVT already picked 6 candidates, or was that perinatal? Git rejected from ICN my options are getting frighteningly thin...
    how do you know you were rejected from icn?

    Yup, will just have to wait and see how it goes. I had a cross country move based on my licence, so may change a lot due to a stupid mistake. I hope after it goes under review it is let go as I feel I probably passed.
    Are you from CA?

    Referring to the Pearson Vue trick, I did do it and it gave me the good pop up but not confident until my name is posted on BRN website :-)

    Good luck to you, hope everything works out in the end for you!

    Have you gotten your results yet? I took my test on 6/27 and it shut off at 82 questions with the "good" pop-up. Definitely didn't feel confident about it but am hoping the PVT works. It has been 7 days and I haven't gotten my results, but my friend who tested on 6/29 got his today. However, I've been searching my friends names who took the test the same day as me and they haven't gotten results either, so I'm not discouraged yet. My friends ranged from getting results in 2 days to 2 weeks plus. So nerve wracking!
    Nope, no results yet. I took mine the June 21st. A lot of the people who took it before I did have already found out their results! A classmate who took hers the same day I took mine found out she is licensed TODAY. There's only one classmate who took his before mine and is still waiting too. I don't know what's going on at the BRN in Sacramento or how they are handling transcripts, etc. IDK but I just want to know my official results! My school sent out my transcripts on June 12th so by now they should have received it...really don't know what the hold up is and I'm having a hard time contacting them. I'm gonna wait it out until another week and if no results yet, I'm gonna make sure I get into contact with them.

    I applied for PICU and Peds. The first question she asked me was "did you do a preceptorship?" and "Did you apply for a position where you precepted?" For me it was a Yes and Yes, that seemed important. She stated that having done these two things I was a "qualified applicant", my applications had been forwarded to the hiring managers, however that did not mean I would receive a call. The managers still could choose to not contact or interview me. And no, my application status never changed online :-(
    Thanks for the info :-) Good luck!

    I called the recruiter today. She said my app had been forwarded to the hiring manager, and all interviews would be done by July 22nd if they are going to be done. Best of luck!
    May I ask what unit you applied for? And even though she told you that your application has been forwarded to the hiring manager, did your application status actually change online?

    Thanks! :-)

    I would not worry about any pharm meds. I would recommend to understand side effects of psych meds though. I had a lot of those (akinesia, tardive dyskinesia, parkinsonism, etc). Know to differentiate those.
