  5. Vulnerable Populations....   5/19
    That class was interesting but the data gathering for the paper was horrific. It took so very much more time then it seemed it should. I had to jump from site to site to gather the data on all the...

  6. UTA College Algebra: A Freaken Rant
    I figured complaining may not get me anywhere, but maybe if enough of us did and wouldn't go away then they would consider changing things? My job is such that right now I'm the only nurse on...

  12. Texas government at UTA
    I rented the book, and used it some. I used the lecture and blackboard notes more. That class was alright, boring at times but that can be said for a lot of classes.

  13. Nurses aren't maids!
    I respect the parents/family, and I respect their home and rules. BUT, there is a line here and for me it's deviating from the POC. When parents ask me to do things or not do things that...

  19. Holistic Health Assessment starting 9/23
    Yep, the due dates are not very workable when you are already a working nurse. I wonder why they picked Thursday of all days? Sundays would have been so much better. Ugh.

  25. Could Obamacare cause a shortage in nursing again
    I hope "been there, done that" is right as well. I am finishing my BSN and I have no idea what direction to go precisely because of health care reform. I have so many questions, do I get a DNP?...
