    It's 92 bed facility and there is one Rn and two CNA for day shift and only one Rn (no CNA) for night shift
    I would run. That doesn't sound safe at all.

    And sadly, many students are not particuarly interested in nursing, just a good steady paycheck.
    So? Not every nurse has to be Florence Nightingale. Many people choose careers for financial stability, but that doesn't make them incompetent or bad at their jobs.

    As the other posters have stated, take the post-acute job. It's easier to transition into another job if you have experience AND you're actively working.

    I was recently fired from my job as a PCT. A nurse asked me if I could perform a particular task. I told her I wasn't sure, I called the supervisor and asked if I am permitted to do this. She asked if I had been taught it in nursing school. I indicated that I was. She said that the nurse can, then, delegate that task to me. I did it and was fired about a month after. This occurred in the state of Ohio, where the law is clear that the RN is responsible for accurate delegation and is to be who is held accountable for improper delegation. The task was inserting an NG tube. The procedure went smoothly and no harm was done. I have never been written up before, never even been late. The RN I was working for and the supervisor both said to do it. I rely on their knowledge to know how to do my job. I feel like I am a patsy.
    The RN should have been fired too. You both were accountable.

    Technology can be harnessed to improve learning. But online courses are just...insufficient. There are things you learn just by stepping your foot in the campus. Even how long it takes for you to get ready for school builds your time management skills. These tiny little things make a big difference in character building. If I am the employer, I would want to hire "brick-and-mortar" kind of workers, not because I want to bully anyone but because it is my right to protect my investment.
    Let's hope you're never an "employer" then. While employers can hire anyone they see fit based on their own beliefs, I see so much fault in that. Everyone is different. I actually think it takes a dedicated, hard-worker to get through an online program. If I'm eventually the hiring manager, NM, or CNO of a facility, I would hope I don't select nurses based on bias and unproven beliefs.

    He just didn't understand that if I got drug tested I could lose my license.
    Ever go to the grocery store and had to pray and pay - that is, pray that you'll have enough to pay for your groceries. Well, same concept just that you pray you don't get drug tested until it's out of your system lol.

    Wait, wait, wait... what? Is this serious? And then it says she received a distraction-free environment AND extra time on an exam and STILL felt like her professor didn't do enough to help her pass. What's next? She's going to sue a coding patient for not giving her enough time to prepare. SMH.
