  1. Students who fight back at instructor feedback
    I always try to relate their shortcomings to the skills they will need as a nurse. When they don't follow my rubric, for example, I tell them that attention to detail is a key nursing skill. That...

  3. RNs with a Bachelor's in another field
    I received my MSN without the BSN. I have a Bachelor in another field and an ASN. All that was required was the RN, and a Bachelor degree. I was in the same situation and faced the decision of...

  4. Front Range Community College
    I did my MSN Capstone course there, and found the school to be good. High attrition I would guess is related to the Community College issues of busy adults. What's more important than the school?...

  5. What is Entry-Level Rank for Nurse Airforce, and what are working conditions?
    Have you considered Guard or Reserve? It has 80% less impact on your family life. You would be ranked based on your years of experience as a nurse, but you need to have a Bachelor degree to be an...

  7. Is this actually a HIPAA violation?
    This will be the best lesson you ever learned in school! I'm sorry it was so painful, and your dean needs to attend a few nursing courses herself. She clearly doesn't get it. HIPAA applies to...

  8. Can I join the NAVY or AIRFORCE???
    I agree with Jfratian, if nursing is only a way point, get your Bach in something else. You can work as a nurse to finance your Bachelors. I imagine a recruiter would find a science degree more...

  10. Online MS
    I got mine from Excelsior and have had no problems. In fact I (and several classmates) immediately got teaching jobs. It was by far, the best way for me.

    Thank you for adding this. We work in a minefield which is what makes us awesome. It just shows the vital importance of developing good habits, I'm glad this turned out OK. :)

    I don't know what you look like, but maybe an update to your hairstyle could make you "look your age".

  13. Forgetting to prime peripheral IV line...
    I can't say this was harmless, there is too little information. But I hope you are horrified, not just mildly curious. Every patient is different so I don't think you will find any literature on the...

  14. Should Nurses know procedural costs?
    Nope, mainly because, unlike in a store, there is no one price for things. They are charged differently depending on many factors, like your insurance, or whether you even have insurance. Don't go...

    Which type do you mean? There are professional educators who work in hospitals, and College and University teachers (and plenty of other venues I'm sure).

  16. Moms in the Air Force Reserves?
    I'm a single, divorced, Dad and it has worked fine for me. For some reason after the divorce my ex was supportive so she has agreed to take the kids when I have drill and deployments. If you become a...

  17. Chest hair
    OMG any nurse can wear a regular V neck scrub top. If a man is hairy its not his fault! If a woman is hairy, not her fault! That's the uniform, wear it, love it, rock it!

  18. Beard as a male nurse?
    Beard, yes! Once you get a job, follow the dress code. If you can't pass the mask fit test (you won't) they should provide alternate protection, like a papper. But, most likely it will be easier for...

  21. Please help, the horror of JC documentation in orientation
    I tracked down the source of the current form to a previous educator. You were right, that it was more difficult than necessary. I will be extensively revising it, thanks for your help.

  25. Can I date the nurse who took care my mother before she passed away?
    You can date her, but she shouldn't date you. Besides as other have noted, not returning your calls and not calling you, are clear and obvious signals. Find a woman who is into you.
