    As a student in a Master's program, I have to admit that I'm a bit surprised that your program would allow a shortcut such as asking on a public website. It doesn't seem like you're following the spirit of the assignment, which is to actually do a little legwork to get an in-person (or even telephone) interview with a real live body. You don't know our credentials or that the person who answers your questions here is actually a nurse manager, and not a hairy man in his mother's basement.

    I admit that I'm kind of disappointed that a master's student would go about the assignment in this manner. It just doesn't really seem right or up to the level I would expect from a student in a graduate program.

    Or am I a big fuddy-duddy and this is just the wave of the future in education?

    As another MSN student I really did not find your response helpful to the original poster. Many people post these types of questions on this site all the time. They may be undergraduates but never the less they are asking for interview help here. If you do not agree nor wish to assist then move on to the next post....

    It wasn't meant to be helpful in that I was not attempting to participate in her homework assignment (I am not a nurse manager).

    But I do think the idea behind my response is worth examining. How valid is the data collected when you can't verify its authenticity? I guess I would expect a higher level of data collection from a graduate student, although I disagree on general principle to ANYONE attempting to do an interview with an RN on a public message board where credentials cannot be verified.

    I find your post uniformed and unintelligent. There are thousands of peer reviewed journals that can Aunthenicate all the posted questions. However, what is needed is a personal perspective of one that is involved in the day to day activities as a administrator
    Catch a ride on the wave of education-it is apparent what you need is a education to secure a more professional future and a positive outlook

    I don't think it's uninformed and unintelligent to say that not everybody online is what they claim they are, and you don't know that the person responding to your questions is actually a nurse manager. I would say the opposite, that you can take everyone's claims at face value, to be kind of naive. But then, I've been on the internet for about two decades, so I tend to be more jaded about stuff like that.

    If you can verify all the answers through peer-reviewed journals, why not just make up a person and their answers? It would be just as verifiable as a nameless stranger here posting their responses.

    With that, I will refrain from posting any more in this thread, as it's not in keeping with my new, more positive persona.

    Why does everyone make such a big deal out of this? Just answer the questions!! Maybe the original poster has already done an in person interview and wanted questions answered on line as well for comparison! Not a bad idea, I think. Sometimes people are more open and honest with ideas and opinions when not in fear of repercussion from their facility!!! I myself am enrolled in a master's program and not only had to interview the CNO, but all leaders of the administration branch. I found it extremely difficult to get them to make time for me. When they did, it seemed they were too busy and distracted to answer my questions as well as an attitude of loftiness and condadescending! Relax! We're all nurses and in this together!!

    Oh, yay! A year old resurrected thread! Good to see I was as feisty a year ago as I am now.
