  1. surgical tech vs. rn
    The math isn't really that hard. It's all basic arithmetic, you just have to pay real close attention. There is no room for error. Although in the real world the math is pretty much done for you...

  2. Medtech College Indianapolis, IN
    DO NOT attend medtech! They have abysmal NCLEX pass rates and a horrible reputation. Their RN program is barely holding on to BON accreditation and I would not be surprised if they lose it.

  3. Nurses are Not Doctors
    More stupidity... Your response adds nothing substantive to the conversation. A representatives perception of a provider has no correlation to their ability to provide care. As far as I am concerned...

  4. Nurses are Not Doctors
    27 pages in and what have we learned? Who has changed their mind? You can spout off credentials and anecdotes all you want but as far as I know you are all a bunch of janitors at walmart. I can read...

  5. Do you think MacBook 11inch would be good for Nursing School? Or is it too small?
    This can be tricky with mac's sometimes but generally if you do a google search there is a work around. I have never had to use a pc because of compatibility issues. I have had to do some googling...

  6. Do you think MacBook 11inch would be good for Nursing School? Or is it too small?
    Have you been in a classroom in the past 10 years? EVERYONE uses a laptop or iPad / tablet for taking notes. Maybe <5% still take notes on paper. Beside that, most classes require you to have a...

  7. Do you think MacBook 11inch would be good for Nursing School? Or is it too small?
    I can't say enough about the quality and performance of my 2007 aluminum MacBook (before they were all called pro's) after 7 years the only thing that is starting to show any wear is the battery but...

  8. If we had a conservative nurses forum
    I don't like to label myself with one ideology or another but my feeling generally align with conservatism and occasionally libertarianism.

  9. Health Care and Contraception: Did the Supreme Court Get It Right?
    Hobby Lobby covers 16/20 of the mandated forms of birth control. Of the 4 they don't cover 2 are available OTC for around $50. A woman's method of birth control isn't an employers business, that is...

  10. Acetylcysteine
    Nope, haven't heard of that. Perhaps it was a protocol at a hospital your nursing faculty worked at.

  11. Obamacare? what are your thoughts
    Right but I thought this thread was about the ACA and not part D. It seems like you are just trying to stick your finger in the posters eye.

  13. DNP vs MD
    Because there is no standard requirement for DNP clinical hours. Some schools may have thousands of clinical hours in their BSN to DNP programs, other post-masters DNP programs may have no additional...

  14. Obamacare? what are your thoughts
    I should have said a small percentage of those newly insured under the ACA didn't already have coverage. What are the current uninsured figures?

  15. Obamacare? what are your thoughts
    Most people did have insurance before, only a small percentage didn't. So most people had to buy a new and more expensive plan because most of them were on plans that were discontinued as a result of...

  16. Navy Reserve Nursing quota FY14?
    Last time I talked to an army reserve recruiter (almost a year ago) they wouldn't even consider you without a year of med-surg experience.

    As another tricare recipient I have to disagree with your assessment of socialized medicine. Sure if you live in a large military area you can find an in network provider. Try finding one in an area...

    Nope, sorry. The debate is over. Obamacare is the law of the land, Nancy Polcy has called it beautiful, and if you don't agree that it is the best thing ever you are racist, stupid, ignorant,...

  21. an RN is a practicing Jehovah's witness
    Sounds like it's time to put your foot down! If it really is that important to her she will find another job. If not she wont. Either way your problem is solved. I don't know of an US legal...

  22. Wanting to start the DNP path

  23. NP curriculum isn't standardized?
    Thanks for the clarification Juan. Knowing that, I would think the nursing profession would benefit from a separate accreditation for APN roles. Do CRNA and CNM programs received extra scrutiny for...

    Thanks for the replies, I'm really only vaguely familiar with the accreditation process. However, you seem to make it sound as if the whole school/department of nursing is accredited. I was pretty...
