  2. Don't choose a school until you ask these questions!
    My number 8 and 9 should cover that. Credits often don't transfer from schools because they aren't regionally accredited. If you ever see an ITT tech commercial, look for the text that says "credits...

  4. Nurses Can Boost Bangladesh Economy
    This is just about the dumbest thing I've ever heard. This 'top official' needs to do some more research.

  5. ITT Richardson Campus
    ITT should be your school of last resort. All of the things I mentioned are the markings of a reputable nursing program; ITT is lacking regional accreditation, nonprofit status, and national nursing...

  6. ITT Richardson Campus
    Don't give a single penny to any school that is not regionally accredited (in your region it would be the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), approved by the state board of nursing (for...

  7. Regret
    I'll trade you my nursing license for your CPA license. Nursing isn't as rosy as everyone thinks. Stay with accounting...seriously.

  8. Atheism in nursing
    I am a long-time atheist (borderline anti-theist), and I have prayed with a patient on one occasion. I was raised Catholic-ish, so I am familiar with a lot of the dogma and rituals. The only time...

  9. Carrer switch to nursing
    Wait until the honeymoon phase is over before making any conclusions. As a student you haven't had any real responsibility, and are frankly unqualified to be commenting on the original poster's...

  10. When Faith Creates False Hope
    The people in Jahi's Facebook posse are choosing the latter verbiage. They are insisting that God will heal her, not that he could. If I were religious, I would find it blasphemous to assume any of a...

  11. When Faith Creates False Hope
    Hi Elle23, thanks for the input, although you didn't quite answer my question. I think you can provide a unique perspective on this, since you would tend to have the same faith in miracles as the...

  12. When Faith Creates False Hope
    In light of the Jahi McMath incident, I am left wondering how often my nursing colleagues have encountered the family of terminally-ill (or brain dead, etc.) patients in a state of complete denial...

  14. Does nursing really suck that badly?
    Bingo. Jobs are as tight for nurses as they are in most other fields. This is not some panacea job that will take you from the poor house to riches in two years. With all the for-profit schools...

  15. Does nursing really suck that badly?
    I'm probably going to get grilled for this, but nichefinder is right. We are highly-paid blue collar workers. I work med-surg, and I probably could have done this job right out of high school with...

  16. Have you ever had an accident driving to work in a snow storm?
    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned tires yet. As has already been stated, AWD/4WD will only help you move forward; winter tires (with the mountain/snowflake symbol) will help you accelerate, brake,...

  17. Some facts about the West Coast BSN program
    The private status of any university isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's the schools that are for-profit institutions. You must understand that the students are not the school's customers, their...

  18. Kindle Fire HD or HDX vs Ipad for NP school? w/4g service
    I have an iPad and an Android phone and both are of absolutely no use for school. If anything, I would get a small laptop that could fit into your book bag/purse/satchel/what-have-you. You'll need...

  23. Evidence-based Justification for <40hr/week & Per Diem Scheduling?
    I am offered benefits at my hospital despite only working 40 hours biweekly (0.5 FTE). The only difference is that I have to pay about $75 more per month for health insurance. If you are 0.8 FTE you...
