  5. Thinking about becoming a nurse...at 40!
    What a wonderfully inspiring story, pjgal2000! For what it's worth, I work with a number of nurses in their late 60s, 70s, and one who is 80—with no plans of slowing down! You could potentially...

  6. Thinking about becoming a nurse...at 40!
    Sorry, nicernurse1, but I strongly disagree with the above advice. The job market for nurses is extremely tight. Becoming a CNA first may not only help with confidence in nursing-school clinicals...

    Hi PauperRN! I am a nurse with locks and it has never, ever been an issue. While at work, I pull my hair back into a hair net. My locks are always neat and clean. I have two employers: a very...

  11. New Grad RN can't find a job
    Congratulations on passing the boards! Are you looking beyond hospitals? If not, consider long-term care (LTC); i.e., long-term subacute care, as opposed to long-term acute care (LTAC). LTC...

    Again, thanks for your reply! Any opinions on the best ADN-MSN programs? Just curious. In particular, I've been considering the University of Arizona (expensive), Western Governors University...

    Hello everyone! I posted a similar question a few years ago when I was a prelicensure nursing student. Now that I'm a licensed RN, I'm seeking some additional insight. I have an ADN, a...

  19. SNHU online RN-BSN
    I am eager to hear caddywompus's reply as well. I really like the setup of the SNHU program and have narrowed down my RN-BSN selection to SNHU and WGU. While I like the price of WGU, I prefer the...

  20. Do You Ever Ignore Your Employer's VM When They Try to Call You In?
    This thread is very timely for me! I am a relatively new nurse who really, really values off days and down time. (It's hard enough to work my scheduled shifts.) I recently received a voicemail...

  21. Do you lie when they ask, "how long?"
    Hi RNsRWe! I think it's acceptable for an experienced nurse, such as yourself, to deflect the question with coy, funny answers. While experience certainly isn't everything, it usually shows....

  22. Do you lie when they ask, "how long?"

  24. UNISA anyone?
    You're welcome and best wishes! By the way, I meant to say I intend to pursue a doctorate (not a master's) at UNISA or the University of Pretoria. I will be finished with a non-nursing master's...

  25. UNISA anyone?
    I have been intrigued by UNISA since I first read about it 30+ years ago in a John Bear's book. I intend to do a master's there or at the University of Pretoria one day as well (though, maybe not in...
