  1. Scheduling for 12 shifts pattern
    12 hours shifts? 07-19 and 19-07. Each person works 3 shifts per week. Maybe I'm not understanding your question. That's 14 shifts per week for each nursing position. This takes a minimum of 6 people...

  2. Highest possible pay for ADN/RN
    Possible, yes, feasible, no. If you worked your way into a high demand speciality, then worked at a hospital where they allowed overtime, and worked a bunch of it, perhaps. Otherwise just get two...

  3. Transitioning from FNP program to MSNEd
    The MSN is a huge boost for teaching of any kind. It is required for a college teacher, and will put you way ahead in a hospital educator job. Since you have so much invested, I would continue. The...

  4. Troops to Fight Ebola
    If you send one service person you need to support them. Security, food, lodging, medical care, supplies and so on. Personally I believe that Africa should take on the responsibility themselves (read...

    That's why pulling someone back from the brink is so awesome. Some people have terminal conditions that nothing can fix. It's sad, but you should feel that you did everything that was in your power...

  6. Injured Nurse, Can I still teach?
    A free Masters would be terrific. It also sets you up for all sorts of ancillary health care jobs, education of all sorts, business, technology rep, whatever. Maybe you should get a MBA, this is...

  8. Trying to decide between accelerated BSN, entry-level MSN-NP, and ADN
    If you are bent on getting your NP I would BSN first. This can get you a job and experience. You don't want to become an NP with little nursing experience (my opinion). Also, I would go with a good...

  9. Masters in Education Advice/Help
    You just need sufficient time in your week. I think I spent about 8 hours per week per class, but that varied a lot (usually more not less). If you have a Capstone project that will be a second job...

  11. Is nursing for me?
    Who cares how it's perceived? Make it your own. You are right that it is challenging, with lots of problem solving, and science! Titrating drugs, keeping someone alive (for example), is totally...

  13. Where to go???
    If psych is your interest, research psych facilities in your area. You wouldn't specialize within psych, you'd get it all. A psych hospital would have the highest acuity patients. You won't have a...

  16. "Your ER sucks!" and other pleasantries...how you handle them?
    As miserable as she made you, at least she left your life and you're off the hook. That poor guy has to live with her, and she has to live with herself. What's that like? Could be worse, she could be...

  18. I never, ever went to ER when I was a kid

    You could solve the medical control issue by getting your NP, or hiring one. I'm no lawyer but I think your liability would be IV site infections, or reactions to medications. You could get insurance...

  25. nurse ratio 50:1? Yup!
    I'm just saying it's all relative. I wasn't comparing per se, just trying to put a perspective on caring for 50 ebola patients. I give mad props for any person who walks into that ward.
