    I'm not a grad yet...I'm just a girl with high expectations of myself who is drop dead tired from a whirlwind of a year in a program I swore I wasn't gonna do. It's a lot of work, and I would...

    The amount of writing is ridiculous. The instructor posted our grades today for the 1st week of class, and so far so good. Trying to figure out how the paper is going to tie together in the end is...

    If I'm understanding this correctly, and if you posted it a day late, wouldn't it only be a few points taken off? If we have to respond to 6 classmate's post and you did 4, it's not fair to take off...

    I have been so swamped just making sure I understand and can follow along with this Capstone class. It's pretty intense. Every day I feel like I'm on the verge of a headache. I'm pretty sure I...

    To add to what tokmom has said, for some classes the instructor will require that your posts and responses to others' posts be a certain length. I've had a few (Ethics, Spirituality and Capstone)...

  8. Rejected..No Facebook?!!
    How unprofessional of the DON. I wonder if all the employees there are on Facebook? Some people steer clear of social media, and it should be their choice.

  9. Would you ever ask another nurse to give your pt a suppository?
    It's all about teamwork. I would not be offended, and I would ask the nurse to insert the suppository if they were better positioned than I was. If it was that serious, I'd tell them to come around...

    Did anyone do more than the 15 articles for the capstone? It asks for a minimum of 15...did you think it really made a difference?

    Thanks tokmom. The directions are becoming clearer, but trying to get 15 articles is tedious and ruining my life. Was that overly dramatic? On a good note, my final grade was posted for...

    The reason it was one of my favorites had little to do with my beliefs. I got all 150 points on the Health Care Provider and Faith Diversity first draft, so I didn't need to make any revisions (and...

  16. IV starts in nursing schools
    IV starts and IV push meds was part of the curriculum in a skills class in the third semester of my ADN program. Of course, it was on fake arms that had huge veins and tons of holes from so much...

    An adequate number of staff on hand, that will work, and preferably can work well together is usually enough for me. As a side note, I used to work as charge nurse in a LTC facility that had...

  21. If you were a CNA did your job let you promote to LVN/LPN after school?
    I was not a CNA, but I was an LPN going back to school for my RN. My employer was supportive, flexible with my scheduling needs, and offered tuition reimbursement. When I started my final semester,...
