  3. Nursing students sue Excelsior College
    Agreed. I don't pay much attention to those types of remarks either because you can slam the program all you want, but my track record, evaluations, and work history speak for themselves and can't...

  4. Nursing students sue Excelsior College
    I'm an EC grad of 2003 and have mixed feelings on the matter. I joined AllNurses a few months after graduating and felt like I was the only one who "passed" who didn't sing the praises of EC. It...

  5. Studying for CAPA/CPAN
    I'm confused. You are studying for both certification exams? In any case I mostly used the purple Perianesthesia certification review questions book more than anything and passed CPAN the first...

  6. What I Wish I Could Say to My Residents and Their Families
    Not sure about the 70's and 80's, but I started as a CNA in LTC in 1994 and yes the sense of entitlement was prevalent then too. I have some good memories of some very genuine and appreciative...

  7. OR nurse being used to recover pacu pt.
    Because anesthesia handles that in the OR. If a patients pressure falls, it's anesthesia that starts pressers, not the OR circulator. OR is a different skill set and they are not critical care...

  8. Certified Nurses Day excluding people

  12. The 'De-Skilling' Of Nursing
    There is no endless or ever growing pile of studies on BSN nurses and patient mortality. There has been only one study by Linda Aiken so it's far from being a basic fact of life. It's another example...

    From the description it looks like you need to be working as an LPN when you apply. As far as IL is concerned, you will need to get licensed in another state and work as an RN for two years there...

  14. Will there ever be a surplus of nursing jobs again?!
    The first comment from the nurse educator who cautioned against making any changes in the number of new grads they churn out every year was most interesting to me. Of course she doesn't want any...

  19. CNA's/PCT's how much do you make?
    But it all depends on what you value. The biggest mistakes people make (especially young 20-somethings) are when they fixate on either their wage, cost of living, or quality of life. All 3 need to be...
