Spend some time shadowing before you make any serious decisions.
I give all my students my "worst" patients. It's good for them. And me
I feel compelled to add, given all the talk about the added work/stress/time taking a student adds to a busy day, that there are good things about having a student as well. I have several students a semester (though I work in a much different environment than most here) and while it adds work for me my practice also benefits from it. I just feel it is important to acknowledge that there is an up-side as well.
I am fortunate that I can control who/what/where/when students come, which I feel all nurses taking students should be bale to do, and I also do get a educational credit.
I don't hesitate to speak up if it is vaccine-related, otherwise I ignore them.
Boston, in your rage, you over ellipsed.
Manflu, flouncing, and now this.
Do I have to kick you off that pedestal?
We have a few member here that have gone that route.
I have one colleague that went from RN to PA about 20 years ago. She is great, works in primary care and really knows her stuff. She recently had a scare with her boards because she is getting further and further away from some of the generalist PA knowledge. She also has been thinking about NP school because the MD she works with is retiring in the next 5 years and they have been unable to find a MD to replace him so she has a full patient panel and may be left without a clinic, she works in an independent practice state for NP.
Hmmmm. I'd prefer to have a nice pack of those for when the MANFLU hits.
Go to the best quality program you can, forget the degree and forget the cost, invest in yourself and your future practice with the best quality program.
I doubt even a legal expert can force them to give you your job back. Sorry. Perhaps a similar job with another company?
I'm sorry to pry, but I'd like to ask you what little debt means. I dont want exact numbers (that's def rude to ask), but going to start a BSN program at chamberlain and will finish in 2 years. Only catch is it will cost me around 50 K to complete. I make almost no money now so I feel like it's worth it as long as I know that in the end I'll go from almost no income to 50k of earnings annually. What is considered too much school debt in your opinion?
