  1. Not getting charge nurse position
    I get where you might interpret my comment that way, but that's not what I meant. I meant to say choosing someone for a leadership position based on clinical skills and experience alone without...

  2. Not getting charge nurse position
    I would find the highly patronizing comments about not getting a charge position because I'm so good as a staff nurse to be extremely offensive and a cop out for not giving me your real reasons for...

  3. Nurse Manager Opportunity
    MBARNBSN made some very good points about the possibilities of your situation. They could just be blowing smoke dangling a carrot in front of you to see how much you will do with an empty promise of...

  4. Confused: Can EC grad work in colorado or not?
    If your only interest in CO is as a travel nurse, then don't forget that CO is a compact state as is MS. So if you get licensed in MS, you can take travel assignments in CO without having to get a CO...

  5. Msn or mha
    OK I think I get where we agree and differ. I think we have two separate situations here. Allow me to me clarify. Yes, CEO and COO positions can be held by someone who happens to be a nurse but...

  6. Value of Nurse Educator Certificate
    I see the nurse educator certificate offered as part of some MSN programs. Are they worth getting? Do they have any value in the academic or staff development world? I have no experience with...

  7. Msn or mha
    Although I like and agree with your post, keep in mind that nurses with BSN's are doing the job now with no masters period so to say that an MSN or MBA alone aren't sufficient to perform the job is a...

  8. Msn or mha
    I will very respectfully disagree. I wanted an MBA and not another nursing degree but that is not where this profession or health organizations are headed. I too see nurse managers with MBA's and...

  9. Don't You Just Love It?
    Now that's one of the best rants that I've read in years. I'd like to add when I'm posting about something that happened during a shift and a student or newbie breaks in with "Oh my is this...

  10. Is it really easier for male new grad nurses to land a job?
    Those are discriminatory and most likely illegal hiring practices in your state. I'm not saying that those things don't go on in the real world every day, but that DON is an idiot for flat out...

  11. Is it really easier for male new grad nurses to land a job?
    There are many layers to what's being discussed here. It's not just one factor or simply comparing full-time females to males. Not always, but men tend to go where the money is. This is evident...

  12. 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...

  13. 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...

  15. 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...

  16. 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...

  21. 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...
