  1. Have any of you seen this petition/post going around? Petition * National Board of Nursing : Allow LPNs to challenge the Board of Nursing to obtain RN licensure * If so, what are your thoughts? Personally, I am an RN. I work in a rural ...
  2. Stephanie, what's the material like? Is it soft? Or kind of stiff?
  3. I've finally landed a job where I get to wear whatever color/style scrubs I want (yay!). I've always worn Grey's Anatomy scrubs because they fit so well and the material is great. I remember in the past I worked with a girl who wore Jaanuu scrubs and...
  4. I have been an emergency department nurse since I graduated nursing school in May of 2016. I changed a lot in nursing school. When I started, I was extroverted and for lack of a better word, "bubbly." By the time I was spit out into the real world of...
  5. Are you happier as an NP than you were as an RN?

    Thank you for all the input everyone. It is very valuable to me, and I greatly appreciate it. I enjoy hearing everyones perspectives plus pros and cons.
  6. Normal to be so tired on my days off? (I work day shift)

    I have seen a couple posts titled similarly to mine, have even asked the same question in the title on a different thread. But this post is meant to be a little more fine tuned and specific (scroll down to the last paragraph if you don't care to see ...
  13. Item for nursing school

    I didn't have an Apple Watch in nursing school, certainly didn't need one, but I have one now as a nurse and I love it. If you want an Apple Watch, get one, but if you're a typical student, your money can probably be distributed better... i.e., buyin...
  14. I am a registered nurse in the process of applying to get my MSN-FNP. Instead of getting my FNP and staying in the corrupt state of Illinois after graduation, I would like to start fresh in a new state. Are there any other NP's who have done this? Wh...
