  3. The difference between ADNs and BSNs
    I am not claiming or debating that you think a BSN education is inferior or an ASN education is superior or any of the things you wrote in your last post that you THINK I'm debating you. The only...

  4. The difference between ADNs and BSNs
    And that's fine, but that has nothing to do with the statement that a knowledge of nursing research and leadership is only valuable if you're going to be a manager. That is SO not true. Research,...

  5. FHR, hypotension, birth experience, PLEASE HELP
    Nystagmus is VERY normal for several weeks after birth. Newborn babies' neuro development just isn't 100% when they're first born. And yes, it's very normal to lose FHTs right before the baby is...

    Basically, your options are: Start over with another Associate's program in Nursing, get your RN that way (~2 years), then bridge to a BSN program (an additional ~1 year) Finish your AA,...

  7. Medicare Cuts Payments To 721 Hospitals With Highest Rates Of Infections, Injuries
    Not necessarily (regarding someone having to be on the bottom). They weren't grading on a curve. If the facility had <7% infection rate, they wouldn't get penalized. If ALL hospitals were <7%, none...

  8. FHR, hypotension, birth experience, PLEASE HELP
    Most places have central monitoring. All the labor rooms and their efm strips are on a bank of screens in the main nursing station where the nurses and physicians hang out. So yes, that is true that...

  9. Medicare Cuts Payments To 721 Hospitals With Highest Rates Of Infections, Injuries

  10. Nursing School Hard???
    I would say not too stressful if you are intelligent and good at book-learning. I did my RN program as a single mom of 2 young children and working 30 hours a week at home, and I did not find it...

  11. RN to BSN ad WGU then onto NP program?
    Those who have matriculated generally do not hang out in this forum anymore. You would need to search through the threads for several months/years. I do distinctly remember one WGU alumnus who was...

  12. The difference between ADNs and BSNs
    I completely disagree and would not want to work with any nurse (nor would I want to HIRE any nurse) who didn't think a keen understanding of nursing research wasn't important at the bedside. ...

  13. FHR, hypotension, birth experience, PLEASE HELP
    I'm sorry, we are not allowed to give medical (or legal) advice on these forums. I would say that, in my experience as an L&D nurse, we would not give ephedrine for those pressures unless the...

  16. RN to BSN ad WGU then onto NP program?
    While this is a common concern, in reality it seems to be a non-issue. Many people from these forums have gone on to NP, CNM and CRNA programs, as well as doctoral programs. Your best bet would be to...

    Generally no. I worked at a low risk hospital for several years and the only time I remember doing an IOL on a previable fetus was an 18-week PPROM. Generally we would transport those cases to the...

  21. Awesome Grand Rounds today!
    The university hospital I worked at here in Denver does that. Even 23-24 weekers would get a full 60 seconds before they clamped and cut and handed off to the NICU staff. It was always a bit awesome...
