    So when you become a nurse and say the nightingale pledge, that only pertains to when your at work? I believe A REAL nurse is a nurse at home, a nurse in the car, a nurse at the gym, a nurse at a restaurant, a nurse at a wedding, a nurse in the park, a nurse in bed, a nurse in the swimming pool, a nurse at the mall, etc. If you know how to save them, and yes a nurse is obligated to save them, then save them!! Good Sam will protect you as long as you stay "in your scope of practice". Don't do anything a doctor would do. Do what a Nurse would do.

    To answer an earlier question ... I have a 4.0 with A&P 1 and 2 complete (which would give me a 5.75 out of 6.25 based on CCAC's points program). I'm currently taking Micro and Algebra 108. I got accepted into the Allegheny evening program, and only have English 102 left to complete after this semester. I turned in my application on the last day, so that doesn't have anything to do with acceptance. I hope that anyone who got a denial letter either appeals or applies for fall! Good luck to you all.

    Don't get discouraged guys! Just because it didn't come today doesn't mean you weren't accepted! Think positive!!

    Just today my boss was telling me about a 91 yr old pt that attended our cardiac rehab. We encourage them to set a goal.He was end stage CHF, pretty feeble but had a dream to one day still be able to hit a tennis ball .
    To facilitate this, she and another nurse drove him to a nearby tennis court so he could complete his "bucket list ". He tipped a couple of balls and as they led him back to the car he leaned over still puffing from exertion and said "any chance I could touch your breasts? ". I guess that bucket list was bigger than they knew!! 91 , the guy could still dream big!
