  4. Nursing School as an Older Student
    You'll do fine. There are a lot of adults (50'ish) going back to school and studying nursing. You have the advantage of maturity. I earned my ASN when I was 46.

  5. Advanced Pharm-Tests or Papers
    I agree. My tests were timed and you did have to know your stuff because as another poster said, there is not enough time to look up every answer in the book. I also had case study type papers which...

  6. RODP Summer 2013 start :)
    I have taken all three and think taking all three in one semester is too much. If you're not working I suppose it's doable. Best of luck! I'm tackling Advanced Patho this summer. 6 more classes to...

    I haven't run into this issue with not recognizing one another but I do notice when I see others out of scrubs that they either look thinner or heavier. Scrubs can be flattering to those who need...

  12. Anyone here work FT and doing an NP program??
    I work full-time and take 6-9 hours per semester. When it comes time for clinicals I'm going to either cut down to part-time or PRN. You can do it! I am married and have children at home. Grown in...

  13. Writing out the SBAR for the oncoming shift
    I agree. Giving verbal report is much more effective. Writing is best saved for good/accurate charting. I prefer verbal report too!

  15. Ohio University Online FNP.. can they legally do this?
    I am so sorry. This just does not sound right, I've never heard of such a thing. Me? I would call the department head and if I still didn't get any satisfaction I would call the president of the...

  18. Black - The New White For Nurses?
    The facility where I work went over to all black scrubs for nurses in March of 2011. We were all shocked! Patients even asked if we were in mourning for the first few months. I had a procedure at...

  19. Recovering opiate addict: In need of advice
    You do not understand the pattern of addiction. The OP should be respected for staying clean and wanting to move on with her life. I applaud her.

  23. called in sick, nurse manager calling back (inappropriate tactics?)
    Nurses get sick and when they do they should stay home and not subject the patients and their co-workers to their illness. Whether they are contagious or not, if you're too sick to work, you stay...

  24. Read this email my NM sent to all the nurses.
    It sounds to me like the NM should be spending more time on the floor observing rather than taking the word of others. This includes both the day and night shift. Been there, done that. Some people...

  25. Exams vs. writing papers!!!!
    Yep, BSN was 90% papers and MSN is even more. Once you start writing you won't hate it so much. It just kinda starts becoming normal and gets easier as you go on because you learn how to do research...
