  2. DNP is Time Consuming
    Always good to hear personal experiences from grad students but realize it is just that - personal. I feel like I've read dozens of threads of a similar nature and have found a good mix of those who...

  4. Don't think my marriage will survive night shift
    Try and talk about the specific problem when both of you are rested and calm. You will be doing this one night a week soon and then I think the problem will seem much easier to handle. It's not...

  5. So disappointed in hospital RNs and MDs
    I think the lesson to take away from this is that while nurses (and other health professionals) are expected to accomplish more than can be reasonably done in a single shift, there are some things...

  7. Time off after NP school?
    Just curious - how much money does one put aside for a trip like this? I'm just trying to figure out how much I can work while in school so as not to accumulate too much debt once it's all said and...

  10. How many clinical sites?
    Just curious - on average, how many different sites does a student FNP visit to complete all the necessary rotations? Since the focus is on primary care, can most be completed in a family practice...

  11. Veterinary Technician or RN?
    Wish I could find the time to work with animals again - any OT I put in needs to be for RN wages, lol! I worked as a vet assistant for a number of years before becoming a RN. In fact, if money...

  12. Family NP in hospital and FA?
    I have some of the same concerns as you Brian. Most of my experience has been ICU and while I love it as a RN, I don't think I will hold the same passion for it in the NP role nor do I care for...

  13. Western Governors University BSN
    I have had several coworkers get their BSN through WGU, all give positive reviews. So far only one has looked into grad school and the few she has researched indicated that her transcript will come...

    I went to UVU and had a great experience. Also had a family to raise as well as worked that last 2 years of the program and it was very doable. Tuition costs were quite reasonable too, which can be...

  18. Icu Nursing isn't for me help
    I think you need to get away from bedside, not nursing all together. Have you looked into case/care management? At my hospital, this is a nursing position that only requires a BSN and pays...

  19. Letter of recommendation (LOR)
    Requesting a LOR from a "big wig" who doesn't know you from Tom, Dick or Harry can fly right back in your face. Same goes for a CRNA that you shadowed for a day 18 months ago. I've had a PD tell...

  20. Letter of recommendation (LOR)
    Seems like a lot of schools want LORs from an immediate supervisor or coworker who can vouch for your ability as a critical care nurse. How long is your contract? Is this the only unit you have...

    The minimum ICU experience is not simply a hoop to jump through, there is actual purpose and benefit to it. I've heard many seasoned ICU nurses and CRNAs say you simply dont know what you dont after...
