    I am a student too in California. I hope that is true! If anything, once I get my A.S. degree, I will go for B.S. and if all goes well, I'll continue until I am a Nurse Practitioner. I hear they make a TON! But I will start with the A.S. degree to get me started. I am so determined! I want the finer things damnit!
    Wish you all the best

    I am currently in the Uk doing my nursing training. I am thinking of working somewhere in the US but i don't actually know the right State to go to. All what we want is a better pay check. UK salary is nothing compared to the States. You work very hard and take very lillte back home. RN get about 18.000 per year

    Hello, Helen:
    Regarding the essay you are working on about Decubiti and Dementia. First educate yourself on both subjects. I know at the moment you may think they are not all that related, but they are. Consider how dementia can affect of the ability to react to discomfort by repositioning if they can,how it limits mobility and judgement, the anxiety and agitation associated, how dementia patients nutrition is often affected by their behaviors and swallowing issues, concurrent illnesses affecting appetite,staff reaction and sometimes fear of a combative dementia patient. Study the stages of dementia( there are 6) and their characteristics and how those changes could affect, by extension, skin integrity. The patient with dementia may feel pain and not be able to express it. The nursing implications are huge.
    Then the reverse, take a look at the causes, physiological impact and treatments for decubitus ulcers. The staffing aspects play a role here as well.
    You will quickly start to see the powerful correlation and the development of your essay will flow. Best of luck!

    thanks very much for your help. It will definately help me a lot. I've atleast got an idea on how to go about it and what to write. Thanks again and i will let you know how it went.
