  1. Would you marry a Doctor?
    I'm happy to be married to someone I can do things with. Why would you want to marry someone who is never home?

  2. Not paid overtime
    No, they don't have to pay you overtime for 10 hour shifts. Do you think all the nurses working 12's get overtime? Heck, I used to get mandated and would end up working 16 hours-- no overtime.

  3. What do you know about Akron School of Practical Nursing?
    I would consider the clinical sites more than the lab-- definitely more important. It sounds like a good program.

    I have never heard "Killumbus". I live in the city-- never had any problems with crime. It certainly is safer than many places out in the country such as Pataskala. What I mean, actually is that the...

  7. Do you have to make a nurses note on every patient?
    Amen to that. Sounds like she cares more about the paperwork and how it looks to state rather than the actual people living there!

  12. Unhappy with CSCC...are there any alternatives?
    Oh OK. I see. I was just wondering because I was happy enough with the program. I looked at Capital and Mt. Carmel, but they were too expensive for me. CSCC would have required too much waiting. I...

  13. Unhappy with CSCC...are there any alternatives?
    I'm a huge believer in not going into debt for a nursing degree (well, sometines it can't be helped-- but I do think there is debt, and there is DEBT) so I'll keep writing these posts, but why did...

    good luck! Just want to add-- I just think it is really important not to build up too much debt to become a nurse. Like I said, there is no guarantee of a job and you definitely do not want to be in...

  16. Reality check: new grad in SNF
    I would say 5-6 wks orientation in a SNF is a very long time. As a new grad in a busy, regional hospital I got twelve weeks. In a SNF I got 3 days.

    Also, I checked out their NCLEX passage rates on the BON web site. They must be a kind of new school-- only had rates for 2009 and 2010. 2009 overall rate was 70%, 2010 was 64%. Those are poor...

    Hi, I don't have any inside skinny. I just looked at their web site. They are a private for- profit nursing school. It looks like it would cost in excess of 30,000 dollars to get your Associates in...
