Thought or advice on their online program? I just got accepted to the PMHNP program to start the end of August...I know nothing about their program, so am interested in hearing from all!
Pros and cons from those currently employed in the field...Are you glad you specialized? Do you love it? Is there a push to hit numbers? Would you do it again if you could? Thanks in advance.
I was accepted to University of Saint Francis' PMHNP online program to start in August
This has been a super helpful thread, thanks so much. I did receive my BSN from Chamberlain and am enrolled in the FNP program beginning August 29th. However, I am also very interested in mental health, and just got accepted to a PMHNP program, so I am trying to do some thinking through things.
Question: Do clinical sites have to be very general? Like Family Medicine, or Urgent Care, etc? I am asking because I was curious if I could do practicum in a specialty area such as Nephrology, or Peds Endocrinology, etc...Thanks in advance!!
I recently applied for and received an NPI number, and am signed to take some vent classes. What do I do next to become a private duty nurse in Wisconsin? Is there a website or some resources anyone can direct me too? I am interested in doing both adult and pediatric nursing at this time... Do I need to register with CMS or the State through DHFS? Thanks so much in advance!
I worked for Ministry for 7 years...Did an internship in CCU, though that was before the nurse residency program. All I can say is that the RN's in CCU at that time were not very nice. The learning environment was poor, and if there were things I didn't know I was made to feel like an idiot if I didn't "get it" right away by a few of them. Mind you, this was in 2005, but I have heard from others that the climate there is poor.
Hello all!! I have extensive experience in DD nursing, and am a Behavior specialist and QMRP. I was just offered 3 state jobs after interviewing, 2 of which are at correctional facilities...Stanley and Dodge. Anyone here know what these facilities are like?? Any thoughts on it? For the Dodge job, I would have to relocate 3 hours away, so am really struggling to know if I should take it or the Stanley job, which is only an hour commute one way!! I have no experience in correctional nursing, but am definitely interested...I was also offered a RN supervisor role that is more within my specialty field at Central Wisconsin Center. It is nice to be wanted but... Any advice is helpful. Thanks!

I would say the bleeding one, based upon where the bleeding is coming from.
I recently had an intervview for a nursing supervisor position at 2 correctional facilities... Although the postings said they would hire after the interview, I was asked to have a meeting with the Warden and another Nursing Coordinator now. Any thoughts? Is this a 2nd interview? I am awre that they did check references, so am hopeful, but wondering....!
Questions were all related to dealing with employee conflict issues, though there was a general one about suicidal inmates (psych 101 stuff) and a difficult charting scenario question. I will post it tomorrow. Thanks for all the help!
Anyone here in correctional nursing in the state of Wisconsin?
Thank you so much : ) I am SO hoping...
So I had a disorderly conduct charge 3 years ago...Is there any hope for me getting a job in the field?
I have an interview for a Nursing Supervisor position for a few correctional facilities here in Wisconsin coming up!! I am so excited...I have not done correctional nursing, but have a lot f experience with very violent individuals, as I am a Program Director for high behavioral homes working with DD individuals. I am a Behavior Specialist and QMRP, and have a lot of management experience...Any suggestions, other than the awesome ideas already posted?
Also...forgot to mention. I have a disorderly conduct on my record. Is there any chance I can still get the job? It was 3 years ago.
Thank you all so much for the excellent feedback...After reading through these forums a bit, I am a little scared of a DON role. But it's worth a shot--I'm always up for new challenges!
Thank you so much for your words of encouragement!!!
