  3. Nurses being forced to go back to school
    I wanted to mention that Florence Nightingale cared for wounded and dying soldiers during the Crimean war. Many of us are aware of her contributions. As well as being a nurse, she was a statistician...

  4. Nurses being forced to go back to school
    As I said in my posts, I believe good quality courses in statistics and nursing research are valuable for nurses. However, I do not believe nurses should be forced to return for a BSN, and I have...

  7. Nurses being forced to go back to school
    My point was not that an ADN nurse of 30 years or how ever many years cannot read a study and make intelligent observations, but that the coursework for introductory college statistics taught me...

  8. Nurses being forced to go back to school
    I do not support nurses being forced back to school for a BSN, but without knowledge of statistical procedures and nursing research it is not possible to correctly analyze the methodology and...

  9. References and Professional Etiquette
    I too disagree strongly with your point # 3. Asking someone if you can edit their letter of recommendation is very disrespectful of that person and their recommendation. Someone did you a kindness...

  10. Hate "Midlevel"
    Master's level NP training clinical hours at the prominent university NP programs I checked was from the mid four hundred hours to 600 clinical hours. Contrast that number to the number of hours US...

    My family member has used a CPAP for many years, from an older model to a current model, with at various times, nasal pillows, small face mask, and full face mask with exhalation port. All of these...

    My internet search of this subject brought up over 232,000 matches. I have read some of them. There appears to be no consensus among physicians about what is the "right" action in these kinds of...

    My point in referring you to the Do Not Resuscitate Order information on MedlinePlus was to illustrate that the patient has the right to choose whether or not to be resuscitated. People are...

    I refer you to MedlinePlus "Do Not Resuscitate Orders", in particular the paragraph "Making the decision," that explains that the patient can choose whether or not they want CPR to be done. Please...

  15. Was nursing a good choice?
    I think I may have partly answered your question with my replies to a poster on another thread - further down this forum there is a current thread "Is it worth it to go into nursing?"

    This sounds highly unethical. Why should a doctor have the right to determine whether a person should have resuscitation attempts that may permit them to live longer if they so wish? This is a...

  17. Is it worth it to go into nursing?
    I wanted to add to my first post, to clarify that yes, it has been worth it to have gone into nursing for me. Nursing gave me two very important things: 1) The knowledge and skills to make a...

  22. Requiring a BSN degree for an ADN scope of practice
    "No doubt?" Why would you presume that a nurse of many years has not made any efforts to improve his/her practice just because he/she has not pursued a BSN? At the very minimum there are likely to...
