  3. NLNAC Spring 2011 Commission Actions. Wonder what happened.

  9. Ivy Tech 'Fall 2010' Applicants

  10. Scope of Practice / Nurse Practice Act
    Your workplace should have a policy on what an LPN can do. The Nurse practice act is very vague on the roles. http://www.in.gov/pla/files/ISBN_2008_EDITION.pdf see page 44.

    I would have to agree with kgle. Ivy Tech does not conduct interviews for their nursing program. Which campus are you speaking of? Definitely not the Indianapolis campus. It is pretty cut and dry....

  16. Ivy Tech Indy Program- Ob and Peds
    Here are my thoughts - the lectures are provided to you in audio format prior to the class. So, I wouldn't believe everything you hear. Okay, so lectures aren't face to face, but I wouldn't say...

  18. Are A's Impossible at Ivy Tech?
