This is all well and good if it's a mutual decision for one spouse to support the entire family. That is not the case with the OP.
I would rather see a school that starts out with 100 and graduates 20 quality graduates than a school that graduates 100 just to get as much tuition money as possible and have those graduates come to this site wondering why they haven't passed NCLEX after 5 attempts.
In related news, the US Dept of Education is revoking its recognition of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), which accredits the vast majority of for-profit schools. The affected schools have 18 months to find new accreditation before their students no longer qualify for federal funds, including student loans and Pell Grants .
The only feedback I can offer is that I would not recommend anyone do an online NP program unless they already have an NP secured who is willing to precept them. I work in a clinic of APRNs who are CONSTANTLY getting requests and solicitations from random online NP students, looking for someone to precept them. They all end up in the trash, because I've yet to meet an NP/CNM who is willing to take on an unvetted student that they don't know.
Many of my male veteran pts call me "doc" as a term of respect as they know I'm a vet. I have corrected them but it is a term of respect - they absolutely know I'm not a physician but after ten years I'm not beating a dead horse...
There are just so many bigger issues out there - like independent practice that I see as more important. I am very well-respected by the physicians in my group, I have great autonomy, wonderful co-workers and I enjoy what I do for the most part.
Also, try public health departments. I completed my women's health hours with an amazing WHNP through the health department.
I can't get past he was middle-aged about 35ish. Sitting here shaking my head.
This is incorrect - Fortis has national accreditation through ACCSC. In Indiana, their RN program has initial accreditation from the BON.
If you currently attend here or were interested in this school, make other arrangements to attend another school. I hope this helps!!!
ITT Tech shutting down all campuses nationwide
In late August, the U.S. Department of Education barred ITT (ESI) from enrolling new students who depend on federal aid and required the company to warn current students that its accreditation is in jeopardy. ITT also was told that it must increase its reserves from $94.4 million to $247.3 million, or 40% of federal student aid the company received in 2015.
The financial blow was too much for Carmel-based ITT to bear, so the decision was made to shutter operations, a move that will impact thousands of students and employees.
Well, you'd be restricted to positions not requiring a license, such as PCA, unit clerk, and things along that line. But what you should be concentrating on is why you aren't passing boards- is it a content issue? not knowing how to read and answer the questions? You may even have a hard time finding a job in one of those roles as hospitals may view you as too likely to leave the position before they recoup the costs of hiring and training you.
"Snarky , dismissive comment.." yes no kidding. Thats the reason a lot of GNs quit their jobs after a few months, because of people like that, who think theu know everything and us , new grads know nothing. And they MAKE SURE they let us know how little we know. And then you wonder WHERE the say that "nurses eat their young" comes from?? Prime example right here.
I was just highred on in a Neuro PCU unit , pending my licence BTW.
So take that haters. Smh
I look at it this way. The MD is like the quarterback of a football team, calling the plays, executing the passes and hand offs and I, the nurse, am like a wide receiver. I execute the orders, catch the passes and run in the ball for the touchdowns. Do I want to be the quarterback? No. Am I proud to be the wide receiver? Yes. Can he win the game by himself? No Can I? No...it takes a team with each player being a trained professional in their position. We communicate and then execute. Each position deserving of respect.
"Hot under the collar" means angry and resentful. It's not a sexual term.
As a gay female, no I do not find male nurses, or any males, attractive. But that's really beside the point. The most disturbing part of your post to me is that you somehow imply that a male nurse who is gay and feminine is somehow something to be ashamed of, and how quickly people are jumping on board to shout out loud how all the male nurses they know are both straight and manly just to make sure everyone knows that they're not...you know....*gasp*...GAY!. Well, that's peachy but I know plenty of gay, feminine male nurses, and they're quite frankly just as worthy. Being a feminine gay male, or a masculine gay female, is not inferior nor something to be ashamed of. Your innate prejudice is showing and that's the unattractive part. If you are so worried about what other people think about you based on your outward appearance and career choice, it suggests you have some growing up to do. And incidentally, did it occur to you that there are also "manly", bearded gay men out there who would probably make you look like a little girl in comparison? Those pesky stereotypes are so inconvenient sometimes.
