    I'm all for diversity in learning and alternatives to traditional learning, but you'll miss the comradery of nursing school. And that comradery gets you through some pretty crappy stuff that you've never seen and prepares you for dealing with the stuff we, as nurses have to deal with daily.
    Are you kidding? My LPN class was FULL of drama, back-biting, and backstabbing. Not having to deal with that again was a HUGE plus of this program! Didn't have the time or money for brick-and-mortar anyway, so it all worked out. :-)

    Teehee funny. I think MD office nurses get that kind of schedule BUT most MD offices around here are opting for UAPs in the place of licensed office nurses.

    I'm currently underemployed and the only hours I can get are on weekends working 7p-7a ( though I would prefer 2nd shift and not 9-5 and I don't particularly care if I get holidays off ).

    I'm thinking the costume wouldn't be scrubs and a stethoscope, then.
    Even though he is a nurse who has come in scrubs, he has come as something that doesn't exist (a nurse who works 9-5 c weekends and holidays off).

    I actually like camera cases. So long as its out in the open and the camera records to a video or drive, and not just feed into a monitor. I DON'T like cases that hide nanny cams. I have worked privet security, I will find them, and then I will leave. Public cameras prevent issues, and abuse. They are in impartial whitness. Hidden cameras are a gotcha game and do nothing to stop issues before they occurr. Sorry for the thread hijack.
    I agree. I feel like the [overt] camera protects good nurses from false accusations and it protects patients from bad nurses. Win-win, IMO.
