  6. Reputable ADN/BSN Programs
    If they have been accreditted for several years (preferably over 10) without issues or investitagtions your good to go. A state school is usually a very safe bet.

  18. Do You Have To Be Religious/Spiritual to be a good Nurse?
    No I do not. Nursing is a profession and an emerging science and should be treated as such. Not soaked in superstitions and rituals. We arenít nuns anymore. However! That being said- it is...
