  6. Has your clinical instructor helped you or held you back?
    It really depends on the facility and the nurse in addition to the instructor. I have never had access to meds without a nurse or my instructor so I can't give meds alone since I can't give what they...

  10. CSN Nursing Program
    No, I didn't say that CSN won't accept nursing credits from other schools. What I said was CSN does not allow anyone to take their core nursing classes unless you are accepted into their program. I...

  12. Not sure I want to be a nurse now...HELP!
    Not necessarily. A friend of mine recently obtained a home health job as a new grad. I'm not going to say that it was easy for her to be on her own but it can be done.

  13. Not sure I want to be a nurse now...HELP!
    Congrats for being so near the end! I'll be done in December and I can see the light! There's no reason why you have to work 12 hour shifts. There are plenty of other jobs in nursing that allow you...
