  1. Grad. school GPA for second degree nursing (CO schools specifically)?
    I would think you are plenty competitive for a nursing program. I'm pretty sure you would be qualified for an accelerated BSN program. What you need is the RN, so the level won't matter much. Call a...

  2. Nurse educator needing professionalism advice. Please help!
    Well I wouldn't agree to meet with her for hours, especially if it is off the clock. Have her ask the director for help. If she won't do that, tell the director she is asking you for help. Offer to...

  3. HIPPA Violation Question: Triage
    There is no way you can give an accurate time estimate, because it can change in an instant. I refuse to be pinned down personally. Giving an estimate might be against policy but it has nothing to do...

  4. How to deal with stereotypes and vicious people
    This must be a young man's problem because no one has ever made a statement like that to me. You could have said A. times have changed, B. I'm not gay so I guess that doesn't apply, or C. Sorry you...

  5. I don't know if it was worth becoming a nurse
    Hang in there. Commit to a year in your job, and doing a good job at that. Towards the end of the year, investigate other jobs. You should be able to find a place where you are happier. Don't forget...

  6. I'm ready to start a paper trail.
    Find the behavioral guidelines of your organization. We use "Encore values". If your organization doesn't use them, investigate a source from a national nursing organization. Make a list of the...

  7. Reserves question
    What the others are saying is you have to find a job. Contact a health care recruiter for each of the services you would consider. You have plenty of time to plan and find information. I would...

  9. Dating during school
    That is so funny! A fellow student claims you sexually assaulted her, stalked her, coerced her, yeah, hilarious. If you think that can't happen, this will be some valuable life experience that will...

    If you consider the Reserve and Guard you will increase the number of jobs available for you. Good luck.

  11. Air Force Nurse/Age/Demand
    How many years of nursing do you have? This would be more of a factor than your age, I think. I would apply ASAP and see what happens. Good luck.

  12. Students who fight back at instructor feedback
    I always try to relate their shortcomings to the skills they will need as a nurse. When they don't follow my rubric, for example, I tell them that attention to detail is a key nursing skill. That...

  14. RNs with a Bachelor's in another field
    I received my MSN without the BSN. I have a Bachelor in another field and an ASN. All that was required was the RN, and a Bachelor degree. I was in the same situation and faced the decision of...

  15. Front Range Community College
    I did my MSN Capstone course there, and found the school to be good. High attrition I would guess is related to the Community College issues of busy adults. What's more important than the school?...

  16. What is Entry-Level Rank for Nurse Airforce, and what are working conditions?
    Have you considered Guard or Reserve? It has 80% less impact on your family life. You would be ranked based on your years of experience as a nurse, but you need to have a Bachelor degree to be an...

  18. Is this actually a HIPAA violation?
    This will be the best lesson you ever learned in school! I'm sorry it was so painful, and your dean needs to attend a few nursing courses herself. She clearly doesn't get it. HIPAA applies to...

  19. Can I join the NAVY or AIRFORCE???
    I agree with Jfratian, if nursing is only a way point, get your Bach in something else. You can work as a nurse to finance your Bachelors. I imagine a recruiter would find a science degree more...

  21. Online MS
    I got mine from Excelsior and have had no problems. In fact I (and several classmates) immediately got teaching jobs. It was by far, the best way for me.

    I can't say this was harmless, there is too little information. But I hope you are horrified, not just mildly curious. Every patient is different so I don't think you will find any literature on the...

  25. Should Nurses know procedural costs?
    Nope, mainly because, unlike in a store, there is no one price for things. They are charged differently depending on many factors, like your insurance, or whether you even have insurance. Don't go...
