  1. PRN hours decreased because of the ACA
    No. It's happening because for an employer this is a chance to cut back on PRN hours because they cost more. They've chosen to misinterpret the law to get rid of you and hire cheaper full time...

  2. PRN hours decreased because of the ACA
    Although I fully understand how this mandate hurt you personally, it really is meant to protect workers who were denied health benefits because of being hired as PRN but actually working full time....

  3. Texas: NP's only prescribe hydrocodone products to hospice pt./hospital facility practicie
    This policy has nothing to do with reducing abuse and all about diminishing the practice of NPs. If it was truly meant to tackle abusers then the same policy would apply to MDs unless they are pain...

  4. How on earth do you pay for NYU's ABSN program?
    Great! Then I hope you find a more affordable way to get the BSN and put the debt into your graduate degree. There are lots of loan repayment programs for NPs. Sent from my iPhone -- blame all...

  5. How on earth do you pay for NYU's ABSN program?
    Wow! That is a lot of money for just a BSN. And living in the city is really expensive unless you go out about 40 minutes on subway. Is this your end degree? If BSN is as far as you want to go then...

  8. Formatting programs for papers?
    But that's the point, formatting doesn't take hours if you know APA. I don't spend hours formatting, I just type my papers and follow APA guidelines. It's easy and logical to me. APA I mean. I just...

  9. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    Free pass on what? What are you talking about? Female circumcision is completely different and abhorrent. Male circumcision only shares the name, it is a totally different procedure and I resent it...

  10. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    Well I've had both and noted no difference at all. Personally, I prefer a circumcised penis. To me, they look (and often smell) better. :) But that's not scientific, just some case studies I can...

  12. Cultural Diversity and Tattoos
    Absolutely not! Tattoos are a culture, not just a lifestyle choice. I do think as ink becomes more popular, this ridiculous issue of measuring professionalism by appearance will fade away. ...

  13. Formatting programs for papers?
    Microsoft Word stores your references too and actually learning APA takes a couple of papers! I can't believe people waste money on software when you can create your own APA template in less than 5...

  16. Cut Throat Competition Makes Me Sick
    It's all about that census in non-profits too. And cutting costs by not "encouraging" services like the HHA, extra equipment, same day delivery and the list goes on. I do see case managers who...

  17. "Scientists try to predict number of US Ebola cases"
    It's really sad and shocking how the media has all but forgotten about the thousands of cases in West Africa because the US has had to deal with 4! The CDC has created a projection model on the...
