  8. Does pdn count in the "real" nursing world?
    It certainly 'counts ' as experience, but when hospitals say 'experience' they usually mean 'hospital experience'. Sad reality. I was fortunate to transition from home care to inpatient PICU...

    The CHARGE kids I've cared for have also had either absent or under-developed thymus glands and the resulting lack of full immune protection.

  17. Need to interview a nurse manager/leader/administrator
    Interview means face-to-face or at least on the phone. Posting your homework on an anonymous internet forum and expecting us to do it for you is likely NOT what your instructor had in mind. Sorry.

  19. Can this be possible? your thoughts.
    I did it in one term working full time. I had an AAS in Nursing and a BS in Liberal Arts with a Biology focus and Psych minor. It really depends on what your transcript evaluation shows.

  25. Considering BSN-PhD program
    A BSN-PhD will take longer than 3 years. Your basic BSN-DNP program is four (full-time), and I'm thinking PhD would be likewise. Part-time would be even longer.
