    Wearing a beard as a male nurse?

    I think a well groomed beard is okay. I rock a low beard also. I remember having to be clean shaven in nursing school, though.

    LTC to MED-SURG!

    Hey ALL! So, I've been in LTC for over 11 years (since I was 18 yo). Never worked anywhere else as a nurse. I have went from CNA-LPN-RN-BSN. I want to be a well rounded nurse. I have never worked in a hospital because I thought LTC was what I wanted to do for the long haul. But I have changed my mind. I am ready to work at a hospital, but I must admit. I SCARED AS S***! Any advice for a nurse going from LTC to Hospital? How is it different? Will my background in LTC help me any? Any areas that I should try first? Thanks!

    Can you refuse to give care to a resident in LTC?

    Try not to take it personal, I'm guessing you are a fairly new aide and will encounter this situation more often than not. Good Luck to you. For now, ALWAYS have someone with you! Speak with the charge nurse about possibly rotating assignments. Good news is this won't last forever.

    Calling off :-(

    My facility tried that.....didn't work of course.

    Keeping textbooks for reference?

    I say get rid of them. Nursing is always changing, (new drugs, new procedures, and EBP)...it will be outdated in a few years anyway. As an LPN, when I went back to RN school I was SHOOKED when they said we don't aspirate IM injections anymore!

    WGU RN-BSN June 2016

    How did it go? Did you finish? How long did it take you? I'm starting August 1, 2017 and have to take Biochem and Statistics as well.
  10. I spoke with an enrollment officer at WGU, she told me that I could "test out" of some classes. For example, Care of an Older Adult, I've been in Geriatrics for 10+ years and she said I told possibly NOT have to take that class. Have you tested out of any and how does that work?

    RN-BSN in 6 months is DOABLE!

    Is this school regionally accredited?
  12. Is WGU regionally and nationally accredited?

    Told to fake vital signs

    A nurse should be responsible for obtaining his/her own vital signs when giving meds with perimeters. CNAs should only be assigned routine vital signs.

    American Sentinel University it is!

    Did you finish? I'm strongly considering this school! Thanks
