I am not a nurse educator, but I work for a foster care agency that has a large number of medically fragile cases. I can imagine it being a great experience for pediatric experience because it combines family process, abuse detection, congenital and a wired pediatric disorders, and a lot of education.
Adequate healthcare. Dare I suggest at least as good as the Medicaid patients?
Once, long ago someone here broke the nomenclature down for me.
Client = outpatient, home health, clinic
Patient = inpatients in hospitals
Resident= residential long term care
I learned that handing in my ID and keys on my last day at a crazy job is awesome.
I learned that getting a job offer on the way out of said ex-job is even more awesome.
I learned that I will have friends at graduation, which is especially nice when no family will come.
I get that. I actually use the writing as an outlet, and I was a teacher in a past life so ...
I work full time as a psych nurse. On the side, I am a freelance writer and I also tutor nursing students I am also a mentor for students attending the RN to BSN program from which I graduated.
When pigs fly.
I think it's the mental image more than anything.
I've learned that I really want to be a nursing professor at some point down the line.
I learned that I am really excited to start my PMHNP program this month, but have been wondering why none of my classmates seem to be on here. Maybe I'll have to start a thread.
I learned that people are really shocked to hear about some of the nursing opportunities that I have had so early in my career.
I learned that the job that I really want pays really poorly and significantly below market rate. I am debating what I would do if they made an offer because there is no negotiating on salary.
I learned that it is a real problem when I can no longer bury myself in Harry Potter. I think it is my 20th time reading the series, and it has gotten a little bland. (Forgive me, JKR).
