Every Semester There Are Clinicals Availible In Bowling Green--first Semester Is Usually At A Nursing Home In The Area, Second Through Fourth Has Choices Ranging From The Medical Center, Greenview And Some Have An Option Of Springfield, Tn And Glasgow. With Psych You Will Go To Different Area Places In Bowling Green And Ob Is At The Medical Center. I Know The Last Few Semesters There Was A Choice In Taking A Morning 7-3 Clinical Or An Afternoon 3-10ish.
I graduated from this program in 2004--would not ever do it again!! A few things have changed since then-- at that time out of a group of 30--when you started your first semester only around 17-20 ended up passing, either people failed or dropped out and went else where. There were a few good nurses there that had good teaching skills and there were MANY whom you would be better sitting at home poking needles in your eye then waste 4 hours listening to in class. Now you have to take an entrance test and have a lot of the prereq's done. Other places have many programs that may be better and closer to you. TSU possibly--a friend from work is going to go there and he says the program seems a lot less stressful. WKU ADN--they don't want you to have a job, family, or any other things that would get in the way of you passing...they are trying to clean up the past.
I'm interested in talemed. They are the number one rated company but I haven't found any info on this site if someone out there is using or has used this company...any advice or insight on them. I will use you as a reference if I take an assignment!
This is a big problem at our hospital too. Over half of the patients are frequent fliers and no telling what the bill is on all of their er visits. Mngmt is cracking down on nursing staff to make sure the pt sees registration as they walk out of the door. Most of us don't personally walk people to the door and are trying to think of better ways for this to be done. such as registration hand the pt the dc instructions/scripts, them going to the room at time of discharge or when waiting to get results of tests...so far there has been little effort by the registration clerks to do this....
I would like the company you used in Hawaii too...I'm looking to travel there next year...in ER...been looking at lots of companies and have narrowed down to a few...
I have been working in the er over a year and for the first 6 months I went through shoes in no time...like 3 pair-(clogs, new balance). In one of my classed I took at another hospital I met a nurse that swore by Z-COIL shoes..she'd had her pair for a year and still strutting in them! I was sold...they are a hunk of money, but for the last 8 months or so I have worn the same pair and not gone home hurting!! They have different kind and are only sold in few places! check them out, i think they have a website... zcoil.com maybe...they have clogs and slide on shoes and boots and tennis shoes, ect!!
