  1. Seattle U APNI - 2010 Entry
    Nurseprac, I don't think they count it. My friend in the bsn program had a previous degree in veterinary and still had to take human anatomy and phys. You might just want to call and ask...

  2. Ridiculous, overbearing restrictions on volunteers
    "The point is, just because a task is out of someone's "scope of practice" doesn't always mean that they shouldn't be allowed to do it." No, that's exactly what it means. Let's consider the med...

  3. questions about burn units
    I volunteered in a BICU for a year a while back. I was not a nurse there, so keep that in mind with my answer :) I did see a 1:1 ratio, but it was mostly the ideal situation rather than the norm. ...

  4. What are you doing to get ready???
    Hi! I start in September, and our book list just went online this week. I found great deals on half.com for my textbooks, and will probably glance over them (at least pathophys) before getting...

  5. pre-delivery "grooming" issue?
    Hahaha- "even men in their 30s expect little or no hair down there." I am well aware - this is my peer group. :grn: Reference "D-bag culture" in above postings :D Seeing the recent population...

  6. pre-delivery "grooming" issue?
    Argh - I'm a regular waxer, but if an OB ever said this to me, they could expect the Amazon rainforest of pubic hair to greet them. I can see shaving if there's going to be tape involved, but...

  8. Study groups... To be or not to be?
    I have found that as long as the group is really selective in who gets invited (info moochers need not apply ;)), study groups go very well. In the one I was in for several of my prereq classes,...

  9. CNA looking into Nursing, need some help.
    The first thing I'd do is find out what nurses do! :) I promise it's a lot more than you think. One good way to do this is job-shadow. If there was an LPN or RN that you worked with in LTC, call...

  10. The retro nurse's outfit has returned
    Well put! Seriously? For patient satisfaction? As a patient going into a hospital, I'd be a lot more concerned about nosocomial infection, the procedure going well, being kept clean and reasonably...

  11. homeostasis is functionally wrong??
    My A&P instructor did a lot of critical thinking/case studies/applied problems for us, too, and while it kind of sucks to have to spend an entire week stressing over a problem, it really does cement...

  13. your nursing decison
    I'm just starting my BSN in the fall, but I've always felt called to work in healthcare. It sounds like a weird way to put it, since I'm not a very religious person, but I was always good at...

    Oh man, then it really is late getting to me. I've tried checking at SU online, but it still says that my award information "isn't available online." Maybe that means there are just too many...

    Oh, I understand where you are. I came home my first night of clinicals and the second I walked in the door I started sobbing to my husband about how bad it was. I couldn't really even say anything...

  17. Big Brother to track your medication compliance with electronic transmitters in pills
    Not only is the article trying to push an agenda, but so is the website. This is the kind of fear-mongering that will keep people at home trying to cure their own cancer with St. Johns Wort, the...

  20. Have you taken A&P 1 and  A&P 2 at the same time?
    A&P I is a prerequisite for A&P II at the school that I took them at, but looking back, I would not have wanted to take them at the same time. There's a ton of information in both, and unless you...

  21. Seattle U BSN
    I had a 3.9 in prereqs, completed my NAC, and had a previous B.A. in anthropology with a pretty high GPA. I had completed all the prereqs before I applied. I'm not sure what got me in the door here...
