  1. Has being a nurse changed your outlook on...
    I've always felt that way, and yeah, as someone before has said, my biggest fear is to be aware of what's going on but not be able to communicate. If I was told I had stage IV cancer, and it was...

  2. I want my MSN, but...
    They had the CNL at the university near my in-laws (which is where I live at the moment), but at the moment, they've stopped admissions. I'm happy with the responses I've gotten! Thanks everyone:)

  3. Hospitals not accepting entry level nurses, new grads. What to do?
    During my orientation at the hospital I work in now, I found a lot of people were in the new grad program who were not from Florida -- a lot of them were from out of state. I wasn't a new grad when I...

  4. I want my MSN, but...
    For some of these roles, does it matter what I get my master's in? I guess it would depend on facility to facility.

  6. I want my MSN, but...
    Do you also do staff development with your master's? I know my position could very well change in 5 years, but staying bedside (and preferably at night) is my current goal. As you can tell by my...

    Can you explain how that works? If a pt exhibits signs and symptoms of bipolar disorder or has a history of schizophrenia, do they ask you to come and see the pt before the doctor? I didn't know that...

    When you say consultant, you mean the legal nurse consultant, right? I guess I wouldn't mind too much being an adjunct clinical instructor, but then again, I'd be waking up at the butt crack of...

    I was looking at the same concentration, but when I saw the university close to where I live no longer offers it, I thought, "...well there goes the one thing I wanted to do." I could pursue the...

    When I was getting my BSN, I thought that was as high as I wanted to go, and I had no interest in becoming an NP. I still have no interest in becoming an NP, but I want my MSN. My question to myself...

  11. I cringe at the thought of work
    I'm guessing there's no opening at the clinics on base? I didn't care for the clinics on base -- I was told it was hard to get a job there, but I like bedside, and I wasn't that into outpatient. ...

  12. Texas Woman's & Prairie View Stats
    If you get into all three, assuming you want to graduate "on time," you may just want to look at TWU or UT. I'm a little cynical about nursing school (I started at another program and then...

    I'm a PV alum -- I graduated back in December '12. Their GPA requirement hasn't changed that much, and as I've applied in the past to all three BSN programs in Houston (4 if you count UTMB), they...

  14. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    I might be a child of the internet, but eek, reading those types of posts makes my head hurt, though I will most definitely give you your due respect -- I can't keep that up for very long. I have...

  15. Why is Med-Surg so hated?
    I love med/surg, and it was a position I wanted after graduation. I'm one of the weird people who had hard a time finding a med/surg position, but I think that has more to do with me sucking in...

  16. HELP PLEASE! New grad nurse about to quit new Nurse job before orientation is over.
    As this is a med/surg position, I would wait a little bit -- like maybe 6 months before leaving, if you really can't stand it. At 6 months, start looking for another job at a place you like. Don't...

  17. Moved after almost a year to another facility, I feel out of sync?
    At my last facility, I worked on a med/surg floor for almost a year. I moved because my husband is getting out of the Air Force, and we planned to move to his hometown. I moved ahead. I landed a job...

  18. Destroyed by previous experience. Should I try nursing again?
    I was in the same boat you're in. I barely think about that situation now, and when I do, I'm not overcome with the same anxiety and guilt for failing. When I started at the nursing program I...

  21. How did you change?
    I had no idea what I wanted. My first job out of nursing school was geri-psych (I should mention I hate psych). It lasted about 4 months before I finally got into my current job on a MedSurg floor....

  24. Thanks, Anti-Vaxxers. You Just Brought Back Measles in NYC.
    I work with a nurse who's anti-vaccine. She's of the belief they're a government conspiracy and they cause autism (or, well, they could). I stopped listening after a while, and when I realized reason...

  25. Status of RN license
