    The only thing that makes sense to me is that you would not be able to get a staff RN position with a MSN as opposed to a BSN because you would be out of the pay grade and overqualified. There are risks associated with hiring overqualified people. But if you want to work as a NP, this should not be an issue for you.

    Or a "lib-tard?"

    No political problems are solved on Facebook other than creating division in families and amongst friends.
    In a way it's been great to be able to throw out the trash. After reading some of the things I've read friends/family post, it's been a pleasure unfriending/unfamilying them. It has been illuminating watching the hoods come off the past 10 months or so...

    On facebook I have a habit of getting into discussions about the social aspects of politics. Im a conservative, I never use any racial epithets, never threaten violence and I use statistics to substantiate any claims I make. With that being said, conservative opinions are frowned upon today. With colleges and i'm assuming places of work being very liberal is there any way I could not be able to become a nurse because of me using my first amendment rights and expressing my beliefs?

    Honestly, this is kind of a weird post. The fact that you feel the need to mention that you don't "use any racial epithets, never threaten violence", as though that is somehow a normal part of conservative expression is a bit disturbing.

    True conservative views are not offensive to most folks who identify as liberal. On the other hand, if you are getting your talking points from Breitbart, and have given up on FOX because they have been taken over by the Feminazis- that is not conservatism.

    If you post things on The World Wide Web that are offensive to people, don't be overly surprised that people are offended. If that is of concern to you, stop publicly saying things that offend people.

    Really, it isn't all that complex. There was life before Facebook- you don't have to publicly announce your opinions to the world.

    Oh yeah- I know it's been mentioned, but conservative views "frowned on"? Toughen up a bit. You aren't a victim.

    THIS x1000.

    The only time this would be a problem is if I saw you make a disparaging remark about my religion, race or sexuality or if you tried to force the god thing on me during work hours. Then we'd have a problem. Until then I'd just feel sad that you'd been duped into voting for someone who is completely ill-equipped to be president, but that's your right I suppose. Free speech is plenty free but does not come without consequences.

    I don't know if you are racist, but if you are supporting Trump, you are supporting a racist/neo-nazi sympathizer.

    I've been called a "commie" and been told numerous times to "go back to your country" whenever I voiced support for things like universal health care. Couple guys I knew called me that years ago, and they are now fervent Trump supporters.

    Obviously this is happening.

    New nurses know that all you need is some experience and few years of grad school to get a comfortable 9-5 job with no nights, holidays, and weekends. Most pay even better than bedside care.

    Only in nursing is there a culture that decries people for wanted to improve themselves professionally. Accept the reality that there will be a huge decrease in the number of experienced bedside nurses. Young people don't want to deal with the nonsense of being a shift worker.

    I believe nursing is a gentrifying profession. It is embracing advanced degrees and distancing itself from its female, working class origins. Barriers for entry get raised higher and higher.
    It remains to be seen where this leads.

    If you're under a mandatory evacuation order, how can they fault you? The hospital in the Keys is air-transporting patients to another state, by cargo plane, so I'm sure this is resolved by now.

    However, your son is not required to work, and you are legally required to protect him by following state and federal orders. Failing to follow an evac order seems to mean you'd be prioritizing them over him. That just isn't an option for me.

    I would go, and if I had to find another job, I'd say I was in an evac zone and my son was unsafe if I worked because he needed to be evacuated.

    Are there exceptions?
    Obviously, those with zero capacity to care for themselves.
    Quote from Sour Lemon
    That pretty much contradicts and undoes everything else you've said.
    Quote from Tetra
    No, there are always exceptions. I'm just arguing it's not the rule.

    ...but doesn't the rule become the exception? A simple infected toe can progress to the point that a patient dies. So do we wait until the patient can no longer work, is at death's door, and is completely helpless before we intervene? From a practical standpoint, that sounds like a very expensive way to deal with a problem.

    How Much Leftist Ideology Has Corrupted Nursing? | allnurses

    I honestly don't think nursing would be a wise career choice for you.

    I'm aware of the tuition costs. This is why I said earlier, it's hard being a Canadian libertarian. Canadian socialist values go against my nature. However, I always try my best to not take advantage of this system, and live as free from it as possible.

    Thanks for the good luck wishes, I'm sure I'll need it.
    If you feel that strongly about it, and you're planning to come to the US anyway, why not come to the US and pay unsubsidized foreign student tuition at some school in the US? (Not that I'm encouraging you to come here ... ) That way, you could avoid benefiting from the corrupt, immoral, socialized Canadian system, which would be the only moral and ethical action for you to take, given your stated values.
