Placing a foley on a woman. I am the WORST. I think I got it right once :***:
I agree with all of the above posters.
Anyone who makes an 'SH' out of an 'S'.......like shtrict instead of strict, or shtreet, instead of street. Drives. me. bonkers. What's worse is there is a radio DJ on the local station that talks like this with every 's' word. ugh. It's the little things that will get me in the end.

Gotta love this one! SO true.
I agree with BostonFNP, as an ASN nurse, then a BSN nurse and now in my last semester of grad school, it looks like the PA model pretty much covers what we had going through nursng school up to grad school.
For the ASN portion Med terminology was a pre req, as was anatomy and physiology. Bio, nutrition, genetics, pharma, patho, health promotion, electrocardiography,legal/ethical were covered in the ASN portion.
The BSN portion of my education was somewhat redundant as we took pharma and patho again, statistics, electrocardiography, legal/ethical and had interpretation of literature.
My grad program has patho and pharm, genetics, research and the clinical/role portion, along with the dreaded nursing theory
I have attended very reputable institutions that have been brick and mortar.
As an RN I have oriented new PA's who asked me for my advice numerous times on how to proceed with a pt and then take that advice
If you are bashing your grad program for lack of rigor, then it's on you for choosing an inferior program.
I see no difference in PA's and NP's in regard to how they are viewed in our facility, they are equally sought after and hired.
My peers who are in the FNP program have extensive ER, ICU, and neurology experience plus various other areas of expertise. I'd trust them with my life or my kids lives in the ER rather than a new grad PA.
Me: "Hi, my name is Dazglue and I'll be your nurse tonight. Can I get you anything right now?"
Patient: "I don't associate with black people." After that she promptly pressed the call light requesting a new nurse.
I have been a nurse for only a few years now but I will always remember the 12 year old girl that came to our juvenile inpatient acute psych unit. She was feral and tried to live in the walls of her house trying to avoid her father due to the many abuses he inflicted upon her since infancy. No kidding she would squeeze in between the walls and stay there. On the unit she would strip naked and attack you with all she could. I'll never forget her, she was violent, homicidal (constantly trying to take people out) and scared to death.......the look in her eyes was heartbreaking I don't know what they could have done for her, I left that job before she was discharged and I think about her quite often.
