You are reading page 4 of Become a Nurse without Nursing School
Been there,done that, ASN, RN
Not only are you looking to cut corners obtaining a nursing degree...
you are looking to cut corners on how to do that! Nursing is not the area to practice through an apprenticeship. Honestly.. would you want yourself or a loved one to be cared for by a nurse without a thorough education?
Kiss frogs. Lots and lots of frogs.
I tried that! They all stayed frogs. Some even became froggier. I finally had to go to school and be a nurse.
If OP doesn't want to go to nursing school and doesn't mind working for peanuts, why not become a CNA?
Sometimes derailing a thread is the very best thing you can do for it!
Did someone mention a thread hijacking?
This is really funny!
Actually, I kind of considered the same thing, only in that I am so much more a hands on skills person than theory. However, I decided to start with my LPN and go from there. I have heard about a cousin of a friend from church; she lives in Honduras. She started volunteering at the hospital, and they trained her to be a nurse. Personally, I think that is wonderful, but it probably will not cut matters here in the U.S.
OP, there are still diploma schools in the U.S., though very few. I researched them and might have gone there, except that it is so far from home and I do not have the money for room and board. Baptist Health Schools in Little Rock Arkansas, and St. Luke's in Pennsylvania. I was so interested in St. Luke's; they have about 900 clinical hours; it is too bad they don't have an LPN-RN Diploma option!
I would say bear with it. It will be so much easier learning nursing here; which can be taken overseas, rather than overseas nursing, which may not be accepted here. If the general ed courses are too much, why not start as an CNA, LPN, RN, and so on? That is what I am doing, considering my situation, and so far it is working out well.
I tried to find a video of someone hallucinating from frogs but instead found this video of the pot heads from high school all growed up now making a nature show.
I also found a video of guys puking from ingesting the secretions of frog parotid glands, intentionally placed on burns they placed in their skin. Don't watch if you're puke-sensitive. Interesting, though, to see how this culture approaches cleanses.
I just considered responding to this thread now with something relevant out of respect for the OP.
OP thinks we're monkeys for hire without a need for any of that useless medical knowledge that keeps getting in the way of our pesky pill deliveries.
Speaking of monkeys, brb....
I like this song.
The question posed by the OP in this thread is quite insulting to nurses, in my opinion.
I can just imagine handing my patient a cup of pills and when they ask what they're for, saying, "Hmmm, I don't know...."
Suck it up buttercup. Work for what you want. I'm currently trying to instill this exact lesson of life into my teenager..."The path of least resistance is usually not the right path."
My dearest OP, I have learned you will find success in life if you dress for the job you want, not the job you have.

Bwahahaha!! Now I have to figure out if spitting Pepsi on my phone screen is going to cause any damage lol.
I like this thread. It is lighthearted and funny. I need some lighthearted and funny.
Actually I need to read my stats chapter.
So this means I have go to my local uniform shop, buy some scrubs, and forget all about this silly education I'm paying for? Sweet.
