Thank you so much scottaprn. Your response has been very helpful in getting my thinking.
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.
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.
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
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.
Just wondering how this all worked out for you?? Would you be able to fill me in?
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...
Did you get the good pop up box?
Took mine June 21st. From CA and no results yet
Plus been trying to get a hold of BRN through phone but no answer.
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.
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!
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 :-(
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!
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.
