  1. Should I quit nursing school?
    If you don't want to be a nurse, don't waste your time. Life is too short. Now you know what you don't want to be-that's a positive. Move on. Find ur calling. Good luck <3

  13. Anyone near 60 starting as a CNA?
    I think you should volunteer. Or become a cna but be a "feeder" only. Back breaking work is right. You wont hv time to become attached or give good care bc u will hv too many pts. Don't do it.

  17. What's REALLY with the hospitals using Magnet as a cover for wanting BSN only nurses?
    Why would a nurse with a BSN want to be a floor nurse?? Too many chiefs not enough Indians :(

  18. What's REALLY with the hospitals using Magnet as a cover for wanting BSN only nurses?
    I think BSN status will be paid what an RN floor nurse is paid. I think the ego is outweighing the pay. If nurses want their BSN and work on the floor, that's great.
