This site is a great resource for older post. I wouldn't encourage anyone who is currently in a program to expect any amazing feedback from members as no one ever responds to post. It was a waist of time signing up.

Sorry you think it is a waste of time, but as with most public boards, participation is voluntary. Nobody is forced to post replies to any thread. That is just the nature of these sites.

I'm sorry that you feel like you're having a bad experience here so far. As you note, there is a lot of older information here that is available to anyone at any time. However, it's true that one doesn't always get a bunch of responses right away to anything that is posted or asked. That is kinda the nature of a voluntary-participation board. There is a lot of helpful general information for student nurses here; have you found anything that is helpful for your current situation (whatever it may be)?

Do you have specific questions now?

Best wishes!

Point taken. I just wasn't expecting so little traffic as a new user. I didn't expect a response tomorrow but also didn't expect a month to go by as well. Ill have finished my program before Ill have received a reply:roflmao:

Hi! Welcome.:wavey:

I looked to see the other thread you are talking about so I could help you out and I only find this one thread that you started. Would you mind linking us to the one to which you are referring?

Thanks.

That was unfortunate because I just joined Nov 18th 2014 and I received a couple of feedback. One must bear in mind that there are over 800, 000 members. Therefore one must try to post in a way that will attack traffic. Try using Avatar titles, and giving your biography.

Some things to consider to help get responses:

There are a lot of threads that do not have a descriptive title. "Help!" doesn't tell us what you need help with- a title that tells readers what it's about is much more likely to get clicked on and read.

Some of the forums here require moderator approval before posts become public. I know for sure that the nursing licensure with a criminal history is one; I may be mistaken but I also believe the nurses/ recovery forum and SRNA/CRNA forums are as well.

Not all days see the same amount of visitors. Typically, weekends are slower than weekdays. Sometimes, those threads that were posted over the weekend and missed by those who didn't visit the site get buried in the onslaught of newer posts.

Patience is a necessity. Yes, the internet is 24/7/365, but that doesn't mean that someone who would be able to answer a particular question is on this site 24/7/365.

Not all questions can be answered online. Some are going to be very specific to facility policy or BON hearings.

I can not seem to get an answer to any question's either.

Lildee, at this point you have 2 posts (this one and one other)- your other post is only 2-3 hours old, possibly in a moderated forum, posted on a weekend, and involves a lot of specifics that we probably can't answer here on AN because it's going to require an answer from your facility/NYBON.

This is the largest internet site for nursing. I can off-hand think of at least 4 or 5 other nursing sites that are dead or as close to dead as possible, so your chances are best to get answers here. Try again. Maybe if you modified your thread title or initial post, someone might find it easier to respond.

You just posted at 1215. It does sometimes take a while for people to respond. I moved your post to it's own thread. You also need to fill in some of the tags so you come up on searches.

Allnurses is the largest, and most active, online nursing community. Remember we are an international site and nurses work shift work. Some forums are busier than others.

Use the tags to highlight your threads.
