    Go for it! I'm in the MSN, 4th class. It is very, very, busy. Many writing assignments. Team projects are also learning experiences. Do your best. You will make it.

    No word from anyone other than you, so far. I'm so concerned because I've read many, many blogs about how difficult, if not impossible it is. I am now thinking I may need go another route. I'm thinking of going back to UOP. Their description of their requirements only says that you have to have a mentor. It's much easier to get someone with a BSN to help you. I have a bachelor's in another field so I can go directly into the Master's program. Actually, I started at UOP in the Master's program several years ago, but I didn't finish. I'm not real sure what to do. Difficulty finding a preceptor may stop lots of people from persuing advanced nursing degrees, if they need a practium. Thanks for commenting.

    I was seldom on the phone. We had clerks in the front office and in each department who took care of things like that. Most incoming calls to nurses were personal.

    Hi Aminv
    I worked in a county health department for 6 years. You will be very busy, to say the least. I worked all clinics over that 6 year period of time, but most of it was in Family Planning and Maternity. You will gain a wealth of knowledge, and it is not as stressful as being in the hospital. Remember, no matter where you work, use good handwashing techniques, AND common sense, along with your nursing knowledge. You'll do fine.

    Good Luck!

    Hi,
    I'm considering going back to UOP for the MSN program. Can someone please give detailed information regarding the Nursing Practicums? I don't work in a patient-care setting. I'm concerned about being able to fulfill the requirements of the practicums.

    Hi,
    I am starting an RN to BSN program next month. At some point in the program I will need a preceptor/mentor. Does anyone know how I could go about finding such a person? I'd appreceiate any information on the matter.

    Have you had to do a "project" yet? If so, I'd like to know what the project was and how were you able to accomplish it.
    Thanks for information you can pass along.

    Kudos to you! You and I are in a similiar situation. We can do it!! I'd like to keep in touch with you to see how things are going. Maybe in some way or fashion we can help each other. Keep your eyes on the goal!! I'm new to this site, so please forgive me if I have not responded correctly.

    Thanks, and the best of luck to you. I remember when I first went to nursing school. There was happiness and fear of the unknown. Just don't give up. You'll make it.

    I went to Trenholm Tech many years ago for LPN. It is where I learned to be a nurse. It is an excellent program.

    Glad there is someone my age out there. It's just as you said, learning is lifelong. I'm starting FCH's online rn to bsn in May. I've been an RN for many years, but never got my BSN. This is just a personal goal. I'm looking forward to it.
