    a. Yes, the training should give you an edge in terms of professional growth but one should also be assertive in his endeavor.
    b. Heard this from NTO, February 2011. Application for it would start this November. If possible, one should inquire personally rather than do phone inquiries for a BST slot.
    c. It depends. LCP did hire nurses that have undergone and "excelled" in BST. Excelled is a relative term because a trainee should excelled in the didactics as well as in "skills" --this include "pr skills."
    d. Abuse is such a strong term. BUT there were instances that some staff nurses were more easily impatient to the inadeptness of nurse trainees. I think it goes with the different personalities among the staff nurses ---some are more tactful, accommodating, and mild-mannered than others.
    Yes it is humiliating to be "scolded in front of patients and students" [& even unprofessional on the part of the nurse staff] but a trainee should also be "thick skinned" when a situation warrants it. A trainee could also perhaps tactfully verbalized his sentiments on such situation. I could just imagine the reaction of the staff nurse if you say, "Mam/sir, with all due respect, please stop scolding me in front of the patient/students...I already feel embarrassed of my inadeptness...I am here to train, please help me learn with my dignity intact."

    The nice thing about LCP is that you are basically hands-on with the patients, you can do IV insertion, vital signs, meds, IV fluid regulation, cleaning the chest tube sites, changing CTT bottles, etc.

    Didactic part is mostly about Respiratory System

    Minimum of 1. Maximum of 5. But in some 'benign' wards, you can have as much as 7patients. It's easy if you have all your patients in one room but more often than not, they're in several rooms. Each ward only has 2 or 3 sets of BP app,Stet and Pulse Ox, so you'd have to do your VS really fast if you don't want your groupmates to hate you for taking too long.

    I'm having second thoughts on spending money for BST. We will gain experience, yes. But how about after that? Stagnant again.
