    "Overexageration"? Whatever you want to think.... I'm not some naive child that believes nursing is rainbows and butterflies, I'm simply trying to find out the norm for a SNF. I've only ever had...

  5. New grad- nursing home-After interview no call back
    I agree with this. It is very difficult to understand your post, and I think following up 3 times is very inappropriate. I think that if they were interested than that could have even ruined it, you...

  6. New grad RN seeking first nursing job
    Personally I don't think that it is dangerous, that is how most facilities are that I interviewed with. Several of my nursing school friends work on such units and love it.

  9. Are LPN's going to be phased back into the hospital settings?
    No one said that LPN's are not needed. The OP specifically asked about hospital systems, and everyone gave their opinion and said what is occurring in their area. No one said that they are being...

  13. Are LPN's going to be phased back into the hospital settings?
    No I was not taught that LPN's are bad and RN's are good. You seem as if you are trying to assume that about me because I brought up the point that although RN's and LPN's are both NURSES, there is a...

  14. Are LPN's going to be phased back into the hospital settings?
    Maybe they would go for the cheaper route if patient outcomes were the same, but it has been proven that there is a higher infection and mortality rate with LPN's compared to RN's. BMC Health...

  16. Local hospital now says "BSN or MSN preferred" for all bedside positions?!
    Oh okay so your nursing program taught you how to pop pills, give injections, hang fluids but did not *teach* you about what you were popping, injecting, and hanging? Your school did not teach you...

  17. Local hospital now says "BSN or MSN preferred" for all bedside positions?!
    So you do not know any pharm or patho??? I think you misunderstood somewhere, because I know that ALL programs have to teach pharm and patho- whether it is in a sesperate class or built into the...

  18. Would healthcare be considered  a "hospital setting"?

  19. Local hospital now says "BSN or MSN preferred" for all bedside positions?!
    So your ADN program did not have patho and pharm built into it? Highly, highly doubtful since it has to in order to be approved by any Board of Nursing!

  21. Local hospital now says "BSN or MSN preferred" for all bedside positions?!
    I also think that the BSN is the better degree, which is why I will have mine soon. But in my area there are no differences between ADN and BSN "nursing" classes (ob, peds, med-surg, etc). My ADN was...

  22. Local hospital now says "BSN or MSN preferred" for all bedside positions?!
    Well I can assure you that they went over patho and pharm, even if it was built into the program. How can you think that they are not learning the same patho and pharm as you just because it is not a...

  23. Local hospital now says "BSN or MSN preferred" for all bedside positions?!
    Am I misunderstanding you? Are you saying that ADN's at your school did not take patho or pharm? I really doubt that there is a nursing program out there that does not have patho or pharm, at least...

  24. Trying to find a career with chronically ill kids.
    You may like nursing, but as others said you have to be willing to work in areas that you do not like until you get into peds, and that can take years.
