I WILL BE RELOCATING TO ARIZONA SOON (PHOENIX) CAN SOMEONE INTRODUCE TO THE THE VARIOUS HOSPITALS THAT ARE LOCATED IN PHOENIX WHICH INCLUDES NURSING EDUCATORS...TEACHING SESSION (UPDATES ON NEW TECHNOLOGY) AND THE PAY SCALE FOR THESE HOSPITALS?
Where I work death/dying carries a large price tagg... the patients/family pay for test and treatment that brings no effective outcome... the prognoisi is still the same... upon the demise of a patient there is a cramble for the room/bed for the next client... the families are not given ample time to digest the passing of a loved one before administrator are calculating the cost lost while a family is siting in the room with the deceased.
No I dont think this facility has compassion for death/dying of their clients.

Start at the community college to complete all your prereq's...english..math (finite) and other math classes..all the sciences-- intro to biology.. biology..microbiology..intro to chemistry..organic chemistry..anatomy/physiology..humanity courses (that are transferiable to the University of you choice)..computer classes..
Upon completion of these courses you will be able to enter the nursing program of your choice starting with all nursing classes..
As far as working as a Nurses Asst. that is your preference you will gain confidence and experience in the hospital setting and with providing patient care which is a valuable tool during clinicals. I hope this help you to decide your course schedule.

I am a resident of Honolulu, Hawaii and my goal is to become a Registerd Nurse. I am currently enrolled in the University of Hawaii, Leeward Community College. Right now I am taking my prerequisites for the nursing program at Kapiolani Community College. My ultimate goal is to recieve my Bachelor's/Master's in Nursing.
I am at that start of my journey and frankly I just don't know where to begin.
It was advised to me to get nurses aide training and a years experience in that field before applying to the nursing program, this would give me some status on my application. I figure that while taking my prerequisites might as well get some experience in the nursing field. Would you advise this?
I am seeking any info. you can provide me with-Thanks!!
Can someone help me find a Good nursing agency that will hire new grads? Will be graduating in May of 2001... Have experience as Nurse's Extern Apprentice with one of the leading University Teaching Hospitals. I also have worked as a CNA for 1 year.
I will be graduating in May 2001 and I want to relocate to Arizona,,, Is there a shortage of nurses in this location?
Currently I'm a nursing student working as a CNA at one of the leading teaching hospitals located in Illinois. I'm due to graduate May 2001. I work the pm shift 3-11. This shift and the evening shift is the most uder staffed shifts and the RN's are complaining that they can't get any help from other floors... now I see that patient care and safety is compromised due to the shortage,,, the patient/nurse ratio is 7-8 to one and the CNA patient ration is sometimes 11-18 to one... and during down time the RN's that are staffed refuse to pitch in and help with patient care... my question is as a student I see the shortage... where does that place me upon graduation in a population of nursing shortage? New grads will be over work as well as the experienced nurses... what can we as student do in such a crisis?
