  1. Robin Williams RIP: Coping Mechanism?
    There is also speculation that Jim Carey suffers from major depression as well. Both of them over-act quite a bit and I, too, wondered if it was some sort of a coping mechanism. So sad either way.

  3. Easiest and Toughest Classes In UT Arlington RN-BSN Program
    Assessment is easy but time consuming and requires great detail. Research is awful. Just awful. With a good group you are looking at 30 hrs/week of work up to 50+ with a bad group. There are many...

  4. Easiest and Toughest Classes In UT Arlington RN-BSN Program
    Research is beyond awful. I had a decent group and easily spent 40 hours a week on it. I felt that vulnerable was ok, but the week 2 assignment took me about 28 hours. So, if you can call out of work...

  5. Simmons College FNP September 2014
    I want to go to Simmons but my main concern now is money. I have a spot being held at UMB and I also interviewed for a TA position there (5hrs/week, free tuition and 25% off all fees) which will...

  6. Letting very young children see a dying patient
    Personally, faced with this, I would seek the guidance of a mental health professional on what the best course of action would be. Young kids can't understand illness if their parents look healthy...

  9. UMass Boston- is there smething I'm missing??
    I have never received a package as of yet. UMass assists you but I hear you largely have to work on your own to find them which I'm terrified of as I don't have hospital experience or many...

  10. Fired 6 weeks into orientation
    I'm going to pop in and say that "they was" not doing anything, but "they WERE doing something." Grammar issues like this drive me batty!

  11. Will every CNA get injured at one point?
    As some who ruptured a disc 6 months in and who still can't feel the back of her left leg: 1) lift weights! Strengthen your core and arms so they can bare the brunt of lifting and also do lifts to...

  15. Anyone taking History 1312 NOW?
    Yikes. This course requires an abnormally intense amount of work. It doesn't necessarily represent the rest of the courses. I got an A so it's totally doable. The due dates are spread throughout...

  17. Days or Nights with kids?
    I think the nights thing is tough which adds another element of complexity to the situation. I'm a night owl and working nights is killing me after 2 years. Especially because it takes me 1.5-2hrs to...

  19. Days or Nights with kids?
    I will also be trying to get pregnant soon. I rotate nights/days Monday-Friday. I'm constantly exhausted and a 2-hr commute home in traffic doesn't help. My husband has a demanding job and while...

  21. RNs who guide nursing students during clinicals (and do a dang good job of it!)
    A great nurse makes such a difference! I only ever had one nurse that would show me and explain things to me. She was awesome. She won an ICU position but declined. She was on her way to becoming an...

  23. Is it true that it is hard to find work--with experience?
    In a functional job market this all sounds great. Unfortunately, in my job market, half the nurses can't find a decent first job let alone have a varied experience to tout on a résumé and cover...
