oh, I didn't get that they were internationally educated.
The reason I asked about Excelsior is because I know some states won't accept nurses who have completed the online nurses program at Excelsior.
And I was wondering if that was the case here.
"Unfortunately, I can't get my license endorsed here"
just wondering, are you an Excelsior grad ?
In honor of "420" tomorrow... As a health-care professional, what are your thoughts on smoking weed? Any nurses out there that smoke a joint here and there?
never tell the truth about any web pages you visit
I was once at an interview, and the interviewer asked that very question,
Q) what are some of your favorite websites ?
so I get really excited and answered
A) oh, I'm REALLY interested in martial arts, so I visit this one site 'somethingsomething.com' where people get together and talk
about mixed martial arts and the latest fights, the ultimate fighting championship and stuff like that. We talk about and debate the different styles: jiu jitsu, boxing, muay thai; our favorite fighters, best knockouts; ...
and of course I'm VERY animated describing all this LOL
and about this point I notice the interviewer is looking at me in SHOCK, total and complete SHOCK
and I realize, I am NOT getting this job LOL
so, I might as well keep going ha ha ha
so I do
and I proceed to tell the interviewer about the first ultimate fighting championship and how this little Brazilian jiu jitsu guy won by locking everyone's arm until they screamed in pain and gave up
and I tell him about this one big wrestler who was heavily favored but got kicked in the face and knocked out and it's still one of the most talked about fights of all time
ha ha ha
This person should have been reported to their supervisor and repremanded .
Go to a doctors' office, and see if the PA or NP, tells the patient that they are the, " same as a doctor".
Big difference in skill level and education.
it totally depends on what you're using it for
look at this one for $500
Newegg.com - lenovo IdeaPad Z575 (12992PU) Notebook AMD A-Series A6-3420M(1.5GHz) 15.6" 6GB Memory DDR3 1333 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD▒R/RW AMD Radeon HD 6650M
its a perfectly good computer
114 reviews average out to 4 out of 5 stars (you can read the reviews by clicking on the feedback tab in the middle of the page)
if all you're doing is
2) internet browsing and searching;
3) using MS Excel, MS Word, MS Powerpoint, MS Access;
4) creating and reading pdfs;
5) watching videos and DVDs;
6) using online classroom services (like Blackboard);
7) listening to music
then that laptop will do just fine
The reason I am so bent out of shape is that one employer asked if I would be interested in a new position, where an LVN would cover breaks for the RNs. My initial thought is that this is a "glorified CNA" position. No way! I need more. I am ready to take on more responsibility, not go backwards. If it's CNAs they want, California should reconsider the scope of practice for their CNAs. Lots of hospitals in other states, allow their CNAs to do their Accuchecks. And the worst of it, if I cover breaks, I will have been responsible for approx. 30 patients in one work day. Would an RN do that...bet my last dollar, absolutely not.
the page says "[color=#1e3e56][font=facitweb]proficiency tests are available for some of the prerequisite courses."
do you know which p[color=#1e3e56][font=facitweb]roficiency tests they accept and for which courses?
to answer this question you need to stop thinking like a nurse and start thinking like a lawyer who is in the middle of suing the hospital because the patient you were "involved" with died
why are you (someone off duty) allowed into a non-visitor area ?
had you drunk any alcohol while you were off duty and before you got involved with this call?
what supply did you bring ? how much did you bring ?
how did you know what to bring ? (was it told to you vocally or was it written down?)
what did you know about the patient : age, weight, other medications the patient might be taking?
why couldn't your colleague find an item ?
is your colleague incompetent ? are the people who stock the room incompetent ?
was the delay in finding the item a contributing cause to the patient's death ?
if it was, are you partially responsible because you found and delivered the item? Maybe you should have found it faster.
Did your colleague assume that you would stay and help ? And was you not being there was a contributing cause to the patient's death? Why did you abandon your colleagues ?
was the room locked ? why or why not ?
if it wasn't, should it have been ?
maybe that's why it took so long to find the item, the unlocked room allows anyone to go in there and move an rearrange things
are you ready to be questioned by attorneys, called as a witness against the hospital and the poeple who treated the patient ?
you're a trained healthcare professional, what did you witness or hear before, during or after the treatment of the patient ?
Don't think about what happened. Think about what could have happened and what the consequenses would be.
The consequenses for getting invloved could be getting sued and testifying against your friends. Maybe even losing your license.
The consequences for not getting involved may have been that the patient died.
Weigh the consequences and risks. Then do whatever you feel like.
Here are some videos I found on youtube. They are VERY basic. They are from a lower level general pharmacology course in a community college in Hawaii.
I like the videos a LOT, but let's just say the instructor is very laid back and understands that his students are just starting and only have one bio course under their belts.
There are also chest tube and heart sound videos.
Here is the youtube homepage.

"Working at the pace typical for a four semester hour course, the average student will complete the online course in approximately 16 weeks. Students may enroll at any time. Many students are nontraditional students who have elected an on-line course for it's flexibility. Therefore students may complete the course in less than 16 weeks or they may take up to 8 months."

at Cayuga there is a fall A&P class that covers 1/2 of the body systems and then a spring A&P class that covers the A&P of the other 1/2 of the body
so A & P are taught together, but you have to take both the fall and spring courses to cover the entire body
Microbiology is a separate one term course
each of the above 3 course have an accompanying lab
