  1. why nursing is a mess. three simple facts
    And this is why the profession will NEVER be taken seriously. Since all we do is give bed baths and hand out pills, your point is well taken. Why even bother with an associate's degree? These...

  2. Which course has the most failures?
    I know what the statistics say, but I want to know what the perception is here. In the program I teach in, the numbers don't seem to match the stats. I am curious to know where most of the students...

  3. Working in the hospital setting
    I would take it! I think the pay would be better (as previously noted), and it would actually help you transition into dealing with novice nurses. One of the biggest struggles of new nursing...

  4. Camp Nursing and bringing your own kids
    I can't imagine that a camp would NOT let you bring your own kids! That's basically how they get nurses to come work for them! The big thing is, finding a camp that meets the needs of your kids (age...

  5. People think I am stupid
    I have to agree with seeking some professional help. It sounds like your self esteem is shot (or you never had any to begin with). It's very hard to give you advice on how to get your coworkers to...

  6. St Pauls School of Nursing 2010 Acceptance
    I believe the post said they are in "candidacy status". It's like Magnet; many apply, but only the ones who have their stuff together get status. And, candidacy status (for both NLNAC and Magnet)...

  7. St. Paul School of Nursing Queens 2011
    This is THE most important part of your post. And I think it has a lot to do with what was said in subsequent posts (like the letter from the student). There is not a school in the world that is...

  8. Help. Is my outrage justified?
    While my post was prompted by a quote of yours, it was not directed personally at you. And many of the schools in my area have a very subjective clinical grading scale (Pass or fail), and I am not...

  9. Help. Is my outrage justified?
    Unfortunately, there is no grade for effort in nursing (theory, that is). 95% of nursing students try hard, some just don't get it. My daughter struggles in math. Her teacher says "she tries so hard,...

  10. Is it worth getting and working as a cna II prior to entering NS?
    It can't hurt. Some people do it because they need to work while in NS (the hours are flexible, you can work nights, weekends or per diem while in school). Some do it to develop a comfort level with...

  11. Yelled at for posting on AN
    Some people just can't stop themselves, whether it be here, facebook, twitter, etc. This is our society's way of venting. The problem is, we act life it's safe, and it's not. I have seen many...

  12. Do you call your teachers by their 1st names?
    Many people have very worked hard to earn their titles. Would you call a judge by their first name? A police officer (if dealing with them professionally)? I am a big fan of Top Chef and other...

  13. Nursing school is too easy!
    High pass rates are what keep nursing programs in business, and accredited. OP: it sounds like your school is working on some damage-control strategies for that low pass rate. I would think...

  14. St. Paul's School of Nursing - Fall 2010 Acceptance
    Angel, it's becoming more and more difficult for "average" students to get into nursing school. The reason is b/c of the demand; everyone wants to go to nursing school. It is a great profession, with...

  15. Do NY Nursing Schools (ADN/BSN) Help You Find Jobs?
    In a nutshell, yes and no (I'm sure this wasn't the answer you were looking for). With the market the way it is, they do whatever they can. Career fairs at the colleges are becoming less and less,...

  16. St. Paul's School of Nursing - Fall 2010 Acceptance
    I don't think it has to do with age, but your ability to take tests and your knowledge of vocabulary. I believe that if you are a HS graduate who did well, you should be able to pass. Also, from what...
