  2. have my dreams of being a nurse been shot down?
    I don't think that's mathematically possible. A junior usually means you have at least 60 credit hours (freshman 0-30, sophomore 30-60, etc.). To find GPA you multiply points based on your grade...

    I do LOVE home care except for this recent....speed bump. We are due for a state audit any day now (in case I didn't admit that) so they are a bit frazzled but they seem to not think that we could be...

  5. finding preceptors
    I knew some docs get paid for students but never really knew how much and such. As I said, though, many do still have allegiance to that school and the PA program (they're about to start a FNP...

  6. finding preceptors
    I called most of the clinics because I'm in a smaller town and about 80% of the docs are all associated with the same clinic (but the office lady was FAR from helpful...I figure because I wasn't a...

    Congrats! My office is getting worse by the minute by forcing the field nurses to do overtime (oh but they get it approved by the boss...just don't ask us) while most of the office staff (including...

  8. NP vs DNP
    Check with your state's board of nursing. Arkansas still says they have no plans to make a doctorate necessary for entry level NP.

  9. Failed Another Quiz. Feel like giving up.😢
    Oh and you'll cry again I'm sure. When you get in clinicals someone will say something that makes you feel stupid or your instructor will put you on the spot BUT we all have cried. I still come home...

    The only way you could have prevented it was to be in the room the one second that she decided to reach over for whatever she was reaching to grab. She may have asked you to get it instead. Maybe...

    Just follow recommended precautions (standard, contact, droplet, airborne) and use common sense is what I say. Gloves for toileting and bathing. If someone is vomiting do whatever you need to to...

    I only took 1 or 2 classes each semester and managed it fine. The problem is when you get to clinicals cause you often have to go to clinic 2-3 days per week to get your hours in. Thankfully this...
