  1. RN...to me, means real nurse
    I didn't take it as an insult to LPNs because the spirit of the article didn't convey that, but please be aware that Real Nurse has been used as an insult (with LPN meaning Little Play Nurse). I...

  5. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    I didn't specify that this thread was intended to be supportive of Ms. Pham and Ms. Vinson because I thought it was pretty obvious. It never occurred to me that there were people so mean-spirited as...

  6. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    I understand what you're saying, but... This is a rare disease. Very very few nurses in the US have ever encountered it. Sure, it's viral, standard precautions, etc., but we don't have a good grasp...

  7. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    It occurred to me this morning that Ms. Pham or Ms. Vinson might be members here at AN, and they may be reading some of these threads since most of their communication would be limited to cyberspace...

  8. Shady Nursing School Abruptly Closes Its Doors
    Be careful when talking about accreditation from the BON vs. academic accreditation. I looked up Azure School of Nursing and found out they are accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health...

  9. Denial of financial aid for previous associates degree
    My experience is similar to Jasonat6034's. I had a previous BA with about $20K in subsidized and unsubsidized loans - it's a music degree, so of course hardly anything transfers to health care. I...

  10. Sleep nursing - doing weird things during sleep
    Not quite sleep nursing, but here's my story. I started as a CNA in a nursing home about 15 years ago, and it was an unfamiliar experience for me - I was 19 and hadn't seen anything like it...

  11. Venting and praying
    Have you explored your preferred learning style? If everything clicks in clinicals, you may be more of a kinesthetic learner. Your professor may be able to help you find learning materials and study...

  12. Sexual Orientation Question
    BostonFNP - You are correct, I am a new nurse, and I defer to your experience. However, I'm confused by the response from you and WML. Nowhere did I say that I would be divulging private information...

  13. Sexual Orientation Question
    I understand what you're saying, but I'm speaking in terms of sexual health. And regardless, if I were married, I would want to know about my wife's health issues as well as my own. What if I cook...

  14. Sexual Orientation Question
    A few posters have touched on this, but here's my thoughts. "Heterosexual" and "homosexual" no longer matter. There are plenty of men who identify themselves as straight, but have experimented with...

    I'm a student at Indiana State preparing for my 2nd semester. I need to find a preceptor, or at the very least, a facility where I can do clinicals. ISU has clinical agreements with OSU Medical...

  18. NP with a beard?!?!
    I think beards are a non-issue as long as they're clean, but I'll bring up one consideration. Many deaf or hard-of-hearing people read lips, and a scraggly beard may hinder their ability to...

    Gusakov1, what I meant is that I bought the study guides on eBay instead of through The College Network. You still need to take the exam through the school. You'll need to find a proctor, then...

  24. Should I take a Phlebotomy course after CNA?
    I took a phlebotomy course while I was in LPN school so I could become more comfortable sticking needles into people. It was a great experience. I did become a certified phlebotomist - I don't think...
