  8. should i apply for ADN or BSN
    Either sounds okay. No one can decide for you and you will have a huge mix of opinions here. I would consider time, quality of program and $$. Also, what is your ultimate goal? Much luck to you.

  9. So disappointed in hospital RNs and MDs
    No, it is not old school practice. How can you chart when you haven't assessed the patient? No excuse; however, your NP friend could have easily asked how her lungs were sounding or how her skin...

  12. Why do you think nurses leave the profession?
    Agree very much with #10 as well. The stark cold reality is that WE ARE easily replaceable. There is a nurse glut and being cranked out fast.

  19. Was this such an unreasonable request?
