  1. How to act on the orientation/first day of school?

  2. Infection with normal WBC

  8. Does your school discourage working?
    let me guess - private school??? The ones I have been around all think they are the only thing going and should be the center of your life. So antiquated. I would stick it out at this point and...

  12. Any feedback regarding Biomed Stats.
    did not take the course there, but had an online course in BSN program and really enjoyed it. I think it depends on the instructor, whether or not they are accessible.

  14. DaVita Village

  15. Humalog only, no background
    This regimen is outside the guidelines of both the ADA and the American Academy of Clinical Endocriniologists. We need insulin 24/7, not just when we eat. Whenever a regimen is not working it is time...

  16. treatment depth

  17. What did your manager do for you?
    get to know your night staff. Little things mean a lot. A former manager developed my schedule to make it easier for me to get another degree. Years later I still appreciate that gesture.

  18. Do you think ADN programs will really be phased out?
    I have a copy of an OLD newpaper clipping hung on my office door. It states "Be a Nurse! Earn $30-$35 per week and study at home". This was in the 1920's. Nursing has changed since then, and...

  20. Extern ability HELP! First extern  and first position and need info!
    I doubt seriously that the MD's will know about nurse rules. The best way is to look at the Tennessee BON website and learn what they say about unlicensed personnel. When I lived in TN there was no...

  22. rn refresher course
    I live in Texas too and my understanding is that the courses have to be recommended by the BON. They want the courses to fit your situation and the provider has to be approved by them. Look at the...

  23. Do I have to go back to work after FML?
    My suggestion is to contact your HR department about rules, etc. My experience is that the employer has no obligation to hold your job if you are able to work, even part time, but I am not an expert.

  24. Entering the Nursing program this Fall
