    I married one, so I'd say I'm pretty ok with them.

    HI,
    Statistics question. I am not great with Math, is Statistics going to be killer? What book is used for it? I'd like to get a head start if possible. Thanks!

    The problem with stats is the class starts off mid book, instead of the beginning. The b. ook isn't a lot of help, IMO. What helped me was the book Statistics for dummies, as well as Goodling YouTube videos that explained terms. I also took the course description and googled those terms.

    With that being said, my husband helped me ALOT, and we would work on homework together. He has a better math head. I did pull an A- out of the class.

    What is happening to you is what scares me. It's one of the biggest reasons I won't move out of my position. Too bad you cannot prove they are discriminating against you.

    I'm curious if any of you are union hospitals and on negotiating teams? I'm looking for your language. Thank you.

    You can't pay cut union nurses unless the negotiation team would allow.

    I lost a ppt and 2 health assessments after my brand new lap top crashed. Geek squad was able to extract one assessment. I had sent a rough draft of the ppt to another student, so I had a very rough draft. It was crazy. I learned after that to drop box, email, thumb drive everything, lol.

    Good advice, Flames! I emailed my papers to myself, just in case of a crash.

    Yeah, get those articles NOW. Take a few hours and get them printed out and ready. I recommend printing so you can have them at your instant disposal and can write highlights in the margins. It sure made things more organized. Once you get past the literature review, the other papers go pretty quickly.

    Hello,

    I am interested to know has anyone who has graduated from this program received an MSN from a different college afterwards? Is a BSN from GCU accepted at all schools?

    Yes, just like any other school that is accredited. Echoing Flames. It is a 'real' school, complete with a 'real' campus, sports teams, dorms and nursing program. I know others that have gone on for their NP to other schools.

    Yeah me too. However, I contacted MSNCB and they said a medicare floor qualifies. All I can say is wow.

    Everyone has their opinion. I'm cool with that. My job is to not reinvent the wheel on verbiage, not garner opinions.
    What a better place to find an answer but here, a union forum with nurses.
    No answer? Cool with that too.
    I'd wave back. But I cannot see the little avatars.

    The criteria says in a medical-surgical setting. What does that mean to you?

    Hospital only?

    Skilled nursing on a Medicare floor?

    I hear the ANCC has more definitions/ethical questions. Don't know if it's true.
