  1. Fall 2010 applicants for ccac
    Thanks to all of you for your responses. I have some of the books from the second semester left, but most from the 1st I've sold already. I'd say that Shadyside's the same deal book-wise as what...

  2. Fall 2010 applicants for ccac
    DonK/others: I'm looking for info about the flexibility of the program. I dropped out of Shadyside because I am a VERY single parent (no shared custody/visitation, no family in the area), and...

    If any of you want to buy my SSON uniforms, XS petite, PM me. I only wore them for one semester. I have 2 tops, I pair of pants, and a lab coat. I also have a not-as-nice S top and S regular...

  4. No, Caps Are Not Totally Gone
    Seriously. Only when men started becoming nurses were we permitted to stop dressing like nuns. Now RNs are supposed to start dressing like Student Nurses/orderlies again, go figure.

  5. Which Chicago community college will get me my ADN quickest??
    That is ridiculous advice. She already has a bachelors degree; if she goes on to get an RN through any route she can go on to get a Masters without even obtaining a BSN. That said, I don't know...

  6. frustrated with "online" NP schools
    I think one aspect of this conversation that's being overlooked is the comparison to med school. Well, this ISN'T med school. Along that vein: I plan to practice in a rural area where there is...

  7. is rape reportable?
    Also, this is not to say that the patient must file a police report; if they choose not to cooperate/press charges, they certainly have the right not to deal with the criminal justice system.

  8. is rape reportable?
    It depends on your state. In Illinois, where I worked as a Rape Crisis Counselor, if a patient presents in an ER as a sexual assault victim the staff were required to report to the police (who...

  9. if u had to choose another career in healthcare besides nursing, what would it be?
    Public Health, which I may end up doing. . . As for something I won't end up doing: I always said I should've been a Pharmacist.

  10. online nurse practitioner
    One of the reasons I'm looking into Drexel is because I have a bachelors in non-nursing. I believe Frontier will accept this as well. I haven't finished wading through all of the other programs...

  11. NP Salary vs. RN salary
    Notice how it goes down the line in hospitals: Nurse aides become jealous/judgmental when another aide decides to pursue nursing school, RNs are unsupportive of each other when another pursues a...

  14. Is there a reason why most CNMs don't do homebirths?
    I didn't say homebirth was illegal; she asked why CNMs didn't do homebirths. It's illegal for CNMs attend homebirths in PA. I assume it's considered "practicing medicine" stepping-on-toes...

  17. Drug Testing
    Is it my job to educate NURSES on the Regan-era "War on Drugs" propaganda of "instantaneous addiction"? The SMOKE CRACK ONCE AND YOU'LL BE ADDICTED AND DIE theory?
