  1. Capstone 4/7
    I'll be there with you. I'm so excited to be done with this program! I'm finished with all my general courses so I'll be taking this class alone. Texas government was pretty easy, just pay attention...

  2. Nursing Research starting 2/24/14
    I very strongly recommend NOT taking research with a heavy class, like History or Vulnerable Populations. If you can, this class should be taken alone. It really is a nightmare...and I had a great...

  3. Holistic health assessments
    I agree, this class is incredibly painful and time consuming. You don't have to put much thought into the work, but the tedium is awful. Can't wait for this class to be over. However, after having...

  4. N4455 Nursing Leadership and Management
    I'm taking this class too along with health assessment. There are very few threads about this course, which I'm taking as a good sign that it's not too bad :up:

  6. Nursing Research 4425 11/4/2013
    December 8th cannot come fast enough! Four people in my group have checked in, but two are still out there. Hopefully we're all in good groups. The OOH clarified things a little, but I don't...

  7. British Literature starting 10/21/13
    No worries about MLA. I did everything in APA format (used perrla for my papers) and it wasn't a problem.

  8. British Literature starting 10/21/13
    I just finished this course. There's a lot of writing but the grading seemed lenient. Lots of reading, discussion board posts, three essays, and two timed essay exams. Nearly all the reading...

  9. Only 8 courses, $9K??
    In addition to all the nursing classes, I've had to take four general courses through UTA (Tx Gov, Stats, Tech Writing, Brit Lit). I took one course (American Gov) at a local community college and...

  10. Uta rn-bsn nursing research 4325

  11. CHG prep for all vaginal deliveries?
    We use betadine prep on vaginal deliveries. I've always been under the impression that CHG is irritating to mucosa and shouldn't be used on delicate areas unless it's absolutely necessary. I know...

  12. Vacation and school...what would you do?
    Is there any chance you can take a laptop and use wi-fi? There are tons of wi-fi spots in practically every neighborhood in Europe (not that you want to have to do schoolwork,but just in case you...

  13. Nursing certification as elective credit??
    My understanding is that you cannot use courses to satisfy the elective, which is probably why TNCC will not work. Same with ACLS. I had no problems getting them to accept my RNC. You need to have...

  14. NURS 3425 Holistic Health starting 04/08/2013
    I'm just finishing stats this week through UTA. I've found the class very doable. The professor has a series of online video lectures for every chapter that have been invaluable.

  15. Who else starts 4/8/13? Prof Nursing A/B, Technical writing
    Hang in there folks. Part B (weeks 6-10) is way better IMHO. I just wrapped up the course today and I'm glad to be done with it!

  16. Nurse Initiated Order Sets
    Yes we have them as well. We enter the order set when the patient is admitted (we already have a paper from the OB's office "ordering" the c-section). We can check and uncheck components as needed...

  17. Improving patient satisfaction in OB
    Yes, the local anesthetic is injected with a TB syringe. If performed well, the local injection is far less painful than the actual IV start. I speak from my own personal experience as a patient, and...

  18. Male obstetrical nurses
    No male nurses in my labor & delivery department, same with postpartum. NICU has two male RNs. Interestingly, over 50% of OBs at my facility are male.

  19. What is so special about working in postpartum???
    There's nothing special to me about postpartum, except maybe that it's less intense and (generally) lower acuity than other floors. At my hospital I end up having to float to maternity several times...

  21. What do you love most about your floor/specialty?
    I work in labor & delivery and it's where I always wanted to be. I love that I get to assist in bringing new life in the world. It never fails to amaze me. I get to be a part of a very special time...

  22. Foley placement BEFORE anesthesia??
    Foley is placed after spinal is in, unless mom is getting general anesthesia. It takes less than two minutes to insert and you can't prep the patient immediately after the spinal anyhow. It's...

    It's been a few days now, but have you heard anything? If not, I would get on the phone with your enrollment specialist and find out what's going on. I have heard of people who didn't get officially...

  24. Improving patient satisfaction in OB
    Several years ago our surveys were showing that many patients claimed the worst part of their labor and delivery experience was the IV start (I'd say we were doing pretty well if that was the biggest...
