    Flower, I feel your attitude on this thread reflects your level of professionalism and, therefore, makes it very difficult to relate to or believe your story regarding this school. Additionally, I...

  4. RN/BSN
    P.S. Your options at this time are still associate's RN or bachelor's. You just will need to extend your search efforts, probably. Considering you probably have already almost completed all of the...

  5. RN/BSN
    I completed an AA in general studies and then transferred into a BSN. My total time in school for both was 2 years. I had to plan ahead. I made sure my associate's degree covered every single...

  6. FHR, hypotension, birth experience, PLEASE HELP
    Blue babies and nystagmus as actually pretty normal. The blue goes away immediately, as you saw, and sometimes nystagmus can last for months. Babies will also get blue limbs long after birth if they...

  7. FHR, hypotension, birth experience, PLEASE HELP
    Also, blood pressure can vary by a lot depending on your level of activity. A healthy young woman will have a SBP that hovers around 100-110. I honestly don't trust those diastolic readings you got....

  10. is this patient abandonedment, whats going to happen?
    It does leave a bad taste, and it terrifies me. What's to come for my grandparents? Me? My kids? I wouldn't wish this on anyone. The majority of LTC facilities are just fine, maybe even exceptional,...

  11. Nurses smoking e cigs at the station?
    A CNA was walking around the unit recently vaping. Blew my mind. The problem I've been finding with ecigs is that people think they're acceptable just because they smell better than smoke. My husband...

  12. Nursing School Hard???
    Being organized and good at time management will make nursing school tolerable for you. That's probably the hardest part. The time spent in class and Clinicals will be more than what you're used to....

  13. is this patient abandonedment, whats going to happen?
    I'm pretty sure patient abandonment isn't possible for a CNA. Nurses, yes, but not CNAs. I was thinking - maybe they are seeking legal action against someone else and you're being summoned as a...

  14. Step down units: what's your ratio?
    Thank you for your responses! The reason I ask is this.... I'm on a step down unit that is in a smaller hospital, so no segregation of patient types. We get everyone. Staffing is short lately, so...

  15. FHR, hypotension, birth experience, PLEASE HELP
    I know how hard it is to make sense of a birth that wasn't what you expected. Questioning everything, wondering if your experience wasn't handled as it should be.... It's hard. After my experience, I...

  17. What was the MOST ridiculous thing a patient came to the ER for?
    I had a retired ED nurse as a patient the other day. She was feeling chatty as the moderate sedation was wearing off and morphine was kicking in. She shared a few stories with me, but the one that...

  20. The "increase minimum wage" issue.
    The scientist brain of nurses is trained to use skepticism as our "autopilot" mode. 😊 It's healthy to question, and even healthier to question open-mindedly.

  22. Faking seizures?
    To the last paragraph, yes. The presentation depends completely on where in the brain is getting what, basically. Her speech areas may be effected the least, gross motor movements the most. You just...

  24. Faking seizures?
    I'm going to word this as gently as possible.... As a person who has real seizures that don't look at all like seizures, questioning the veracity of her seizures is incredibly offensive when, by...
