  1. How many different nursing positions have you had?
    I have been a nurse for 5 years. Started with an ADN in 2009 and graduated with a BSN in 2011. I have had 3 unit positions including the ACE unit, Telemetry, and Oncology. I never enjoyed one moment...

    Forum: General Nursing Discussion
    In my area I would say yes because the job market in the area hospitals is BSN only. Many of the area hospitals here have given current employees a timeline in which to obtain the BSN or become...

  3. how long does it take to earn your DNP
    I began a BSN to DNP program that was supposed to be 3 years. Out of 40 people that began only 7 are graduating in May. The majority of us are graduating in 2016 now. So for me and many classmates it...

  4. NP or pharmacist?
    Pharmacist if it's money you want. I will be an NP next year. I will never make as much as my Pharm D husband. Both jobs deal with the public and their own share of BS.

    I absolutely detested bedside nursing. I'm about to begin my final year of a BSN to DNP program. Hoping that I enjoy being a provider more.

  6. Nursing school is not a back up plan!
    Nursing school was completely my plan B. I was wait listed for dental hygiene so I went to nursing school. It's not "my calling" but it's a job that I do well. Doesn't make me a bad nurse just an...

  7. Why do you think nurses leave the profession?
    I think people get burned out and tired of BS. Nurses are the people at the bottom of the hill standing with arms open. We all know what rolls down hill. After a while people can't take any more.

  8. Should I take a job that pays less in order to be home at night with my child?
    In my life my children always come first. I can make more money later but I can never get time I miss with my children back. If you can afford the pay cut in your household then take it. They are...

  9. Other than BSN
    There are plenty of accelerated or direct entry programs. It is completely feasible to become a NP when you have a degree in biology or whatever. It is true that there may be some class that you will...

  10. RN to BSN timeline
    I began my RN to BSN through Old Dominion University's online program as soon as I graduated. It took me 2 years only because I completed it part time. It can be completed in 1 year if it is done...

  11. Anyone else regret this?
    Not a waste for me because I knew the BSN was the stepping stone to furthering my education and career. I have one year left beginning in January until I graduate with a DNP. For my family it was not...

  12. Road to FNP (nontraditional route)
    In my opinion it is not about how you get to the finish line but that you get there. So what if it takes longer? That quality time spent improving your life instead of staying in the same spot. The...

  13. Would you feel uncomfortable with your coworkers caring for you?
    Yes, I would feel uncomfortable and at least ask not to be on the unit in which I was working. People I work with do not need to see me naked. I would feel very awkward.

  14. Should I go to nursing school
    No apply for anything else in healthcare. Pharmacy, PA, med school, Respiratory, OT, or PT. That's the most honest advice I can give you and already give my children.

  16. Nurses Who Don't Want to be Nurses
    Well people can want with all their heart to do something but if someone is a more qualified candidate regardless of drive they will get in. Example some folks have taken the NCLEX 3 or sometimes 5...

  17. Nurses Who Don't Want to be Nurses
    I think people need to be realistic. If a person is doing their job and patients don't have an issue with care then who cares why they became a nurse? People have to be able to care for themselves...

  18. Rejected Apps- getting scared
    Go on and proceed to the BSN. A BSN with a couple years experience will take you farther. At least where I live.

  19. Did you attend your RN-BSN graduation?
    I walked across the stage with my husband & kids watching. It meant a lot to them and I wanted to be a good example.

  20. Tidewater Community College-hopefuls application July 2014
    I would encourage anyone that does not get into TCC to apply to ODU, Sentara, Hampton, or Norfolk State. This area does not have a shortage and a BSN will make you more competitive as a new grad....

  21. What's the furthest you had to travel for a clinical?
    1.5 hrs each way and paying $17 in tolls each day I went. Whoever decided NP students should have to find their own clinicals needs a swift kick😣

  22. many attempts did it take you to pass NCLEX?
    I took the NCLEX once and had 75 questions. When the screen went black I panicked thinking no I need more questions. Of course it turned out fine but with 75 questions it could easily go either way.

  23. Should high absenteeism be cause to be fired?
    Unless the person has FMLA then yes they should. I am sorry but absenteeism makes everyone else work harder. Nurses are already burned out.
