  2. Puppy and nursing school?
    I got a puppy a couple weeks before I started my 3rd semester of nursing school. Puppies cause stress, lack of sleep, and more stress - not relaxation! It's almost the equivalent of having a baby. ...

  3. Does a degree in psych or counseling complement a degree in psych nursing in NYC?
    Honestly, if you want to be a nurse, go be a nurse. No other programs wk prepare you for the role of a nurse, and there are less demanding ways to make yourself competitive WHILE on the nursing track.

  4. Some of Us Are Trying to Help You...
    We walked a fine line in school. My clinical instructors desperately wanted us to have great learning opportunities, but we were flat out not allowed to do things we hadn't already learned to do. If...

  5. Does a degree in psych or counseling complement a degree in psych nursing in NYC?
    Unless you can get your master's for free, I wouldn't bother with it. Any extra education can be helpful, but overall, I think it's extremely unnecessary to pursue your masters before nursing...

  6. The culture of AN
    I cannot get behind this idea in any way, shape, or form. Sweeping away opinions and thoughts because they rub a select few the wrong way (meaning not generally offensive to the masses) smacks of...

  7. Evening shift - yea or nay?
    If I were to work 8s, I'd work second shift. Besides the wonderfullness of not waking up before the birds, it's a little slower paced then, so you could potentially hang out with the patients more,...

    Got a cheap ($30 or so) Timex from Target in aqua. Has a led light up button, keeps military time, displays seconds and the date. Also has a timer. Love it.

  10. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    Hedgehog, it's a horrible idea. I'm sure you'll brush me off and jump at the chance if it's ever offered, but in time you'll think....man, she was right. The way I see it, in order for a NSA...

  11. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    Oh, I can understand wanting a FWB relationship perfectly well. I think it's a recipe for disaster 90% of the time, but that's another discussion. What I don't understand is someone that isn't...

  12. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    No, but there's something weird about coming on a nursing forum asking about the odds of you finding an attractive nurse to hook up with. It's called "reading the room." Learning to do that might...

  15. Things I wish I could tell my patients
    That doesn't mean it literally has to only be talking directly about the patient at every moment. It means communication is supposed to benefit the client. The term for talking about yourself in a...

    I just want to add that I love love love my job. Everyone wants to work in a hospital when they think about nursing, but it really isn't the end all, be all for everyone. I worked as a tech at a...

  18. Why nurses eat their young????
    Not to minimize the negative experiences people have had (because I know that struggle can be real, y'all), but I've had an amazing experience with support from experienced nurses. My preceptors were...

    Lone star has you do your background check for the board of nursing before you get in. That way you don't go all the way through the program and find out you can't get your license or have to...
