  2. Lost my NP job Friday
    When I've been in between CNS positions, I've worked prn as a staff nurse in my specialty. It keeps the money flowing, and frees you up to take your time finding a new advanced practice position. ...

  3. Not wanting to cross train
    Even though they are phrasing this as a request, it isn't, really. Every nursing job description I've ever seen has a line at the bottom along the lines of, "And other duties as assigned." At some...

  4. RN-BSN more gen eds?!
    Also not a UTA person, but, when I attended a BSN completion program elsewhere, I only had to take the nursing courses because, between the transferable college courses included in my original...

  6. Can I wear these honor cords at graduation???
    I would not wear any recognition for academic honors that were earned at another school, for another degree. It would look like you had earned the honors in the course of completing this degree at...

  7. Nurses that kill
    Why don't you start a thread telling us all about it, with an overly dramatic click-bait title, and be sure to describe in detail how you were the only person who recognized the gravity of the...

  8. Nurses that kill
    What "similar experiences"? Finding myself working with a nurse I found not practicing up to my own standards, and maybe even a little dangerous/scary?? Sure, I've had those experiences. But I...

  9. Wouldn't it make more sense to have all nurses become Rn's first?
    The vast majority of US RNs were educated in hospital-based diploma schools, and there were also some BSN programs. ADN nursing programs were developed post-WWII; there was a nursing shortage and...

  10. Hiring experienced nurses vs hiring new graduates
    That was not the experience I had in my diploma program. Our program director told us the first day of school as incoming freshman that we should never take any crap from a physician. We were...

  13. Shocked and Floored-Chronic Pain Mgmt
    Not all of them do -- some lose their licenses, and even end up with criminal convictions and prison time. There was a "pain management" physician in my former state a number of years ago -- had no...

  14. Shocked and Floored-Chronic Pain Mgmt
    The unfortunate thing is that, nowadays, the words "pain clinic" can mean two entirely different things. One possibility is a legitimate pain management program in which specialized clinicians offer...

  16. Hiring experienced nurses vs hiring new graduates
    I agree with enuf. We used to have a similar model of nursing education, the hospital-based diploma schools, and TPTB in nursing worked diligently to drive them out of business as much as possible,...

  17. Does my RACE matter when applying to Nursing Programs?
    It's nice that your class has a lot of diversity (I'm sure plenty of schools do), but that doesn't reflect the larger nursing population. Any source you check will tell you that the overall nursing...

  18. Wouldn't it make more sense to have all nurses become Rn's first?
    The American Nurses' Association was founded before the invention of LPNs, when "nurse" meant Registered Nurse because there wasn't any other kind. They have not seen any need to change the name of...

    Regardless of the specific job title, the issue would be whether any of the specific activities you would be doing require licensure.

  20. Anyone passed NCLEX-RN while working as as full time?
    Many generations of nurses have passed the NCLEX while working full-time as nurses. Why would it be a big deal that you're working full-time?

  22. Nurses, how do you view your job?
    I would never say it's "just a job," but it's definitely a job. Not a "calling" or "passion." I'm darned good at it, and it's worked out well for me professionally. I give it my all when I'm at...

  23. Does the school matter
    Not as much as it does in a number of other occupations, but, the thing is, you never know when it suddenly is going to matter. In general, there are schools with really poor reputations that are...

  25. Aside from the price... is Chamberlain a good school?
    Here's the thing -- good nursing programs aren't easy to get into. There are lots of strong applicants, and they're picky about who they take. If a nursing program is easy to get into, that's...
