  1. Any type of clinical requirement?
    Are the 90 hours on-site clinical time or is it the research portions, you, as other posts have implied? I live out in the country and have 2 small children, so I'd love it if I didn't have to...

  6. Cheapest online RN to BSN (2015)
    Can someone shed a little more light on how the coursework works for WGU? Do you just go at your own pace on predetermined subjects, submitting assignments in a specified order?

  8. L&D RN's opinions on doulas?
    My doula was indispensible to me with my first son. Even though the labor was super fast (he was a preemie) and she was only able to be with me for about 30-45 minutes of my labor, the support she...

    Like a few others, I didn't come to MB from L&D, but from a high-acuity, high-pt load medical floor. I was at the point where I was dreading coming into work and the stress was affecting my life and...

  10. How to properly wash & disinfect scrubs??!
    Who told you you can't use bleach on colored scrubs? Of course you can! You just use a smaller amount. When I wash mine during cold/flu season (I work postpartum, so not as much "ick" exposure as...

  12. What age of patient's are the most difficult for you?
    14-20 or so. They rarely listen to anything we have to say when providing education and generally treat their babies like dolls and possesions rather than little human beings.

  14. Typical med-surg floor or speciality unit for first RN job opinions?
    Personally, I'm a fan of getting the general med/surg experience under your belt before jumping into a specialty. Most nurses that I spoke with when I was in school recommended this and I'm glad I...

  17. HIPAA violation?
    That's what we think, too, that the patient self-disclosed both the name of the hospital and why she was here. The nurse was fired over this, with their reasoning being that she "confirmed" the...
