  1. Any NP out there??

    In my opinion, mainstream nursing and advanced practice nursing (as an NP) is incomparable. Autonomy, respect, excellent pay, and great hours are just a few of the benefits (for myself). My advice is to investigate the curriculum of the program you...
  2. Becoming a NP

    As a ACNP, I can vouch for the previous two posts. They are absolutely correct.
  3. Becoming a NP

    Essarge, You might try the web page for the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. They have quite a bit of information. There are also other web sites geared toward NPs. I think one of the main sites is NP Central (but could be wrong about th...
  4. Why do Nurse's wear there degree on there name badges?

    Posted by mcl4 "job descriptions and responsibilities between a staff RN who has received their education through a two, three or four year nursing program are the same. In the twenty years as an LPN, I've yet to be able to see the difference in nurs...
  5. Why do Nurse's wear there degree on there name badges?

    I agree with feisty nurse as well. I would like to add that the curriculum of a bachelor's degree is more encompassing and thus I feel these nurses should be recognized if they so choose. Furthermore, it helps to promote nursing as an evolving profe...
  6. Financial aid officer throwing up road blocks...

    Then send your email to everyone remotely connected. Look under Legislative branch and find your representative AND senator. Also, go the the Department of Labor link. Also, scroll down to the bottom and go to the Higher Education Commission under Ex...
  7. Have any of you ever taken a six-month Hawaii travel assignment?

    Thanks everyone for the great descriptions. I am forwarding these to Julie. She will be most appreciative of your input. Thank you again.
  8. Have any of you ever taken a six-month Hawaii travel assignment?

    Thanks Wildtime, I thought the same thing. I thought surely that not everyone takes a six month assignment. She travels with American Mobile..I know excactly what you mean. The funniest part is that her recruiter NEEDS to KNOW RIGHT NOW for an...
  9. I was wondering if you could shed some light on the six-month Hawaii assignments for travelers. My girlfriend is very interested in traveling to Hawaii for an assignment, but she is only interested in 13 weeks vs. 26 weeks. Yet, that is the only time...
  10. My license on the line, not theirs

    I was wondering if it was me being "weak". Nope...that is you being strong. As a previous post said...you are nothing more than a warm body to these people. Additionally, it's your license and THEY DON'T GIVE A DAMN. You are doing the right thing.
  11. Nat'l Nurses Week(ness)

    Wow, I'm impressed with the outcome of the initial post. I thought that surely this concept would have been disintegrated by now. I'm glad to know that it hasn't.
  12. What my DON said about getting rid of LPN's

    Wow... I've only enough time to briefly skim these posts, but there appears to be many "heart-felt" responses Anyway, I wanted apologize for an insensitive statement that I had written. I remembered today that I had thoughtlessly written "a trai...

  14. What my DON said about getting rid of LPN's

    Okay, look. I have not the time, the will, nor the desire to argue Yet, I find hilarious the number of LPNs who THINK they have what it takes to be an RN. Everyone wants to be considered a professional, BUT VERY FEW are willing to put forth the...
  15. Nat'l Nurses Week(ness)

    I can one-up the embarassing stuff...our management came up with a BRILLIANT scheme to help recognize nurses that receive pt. compliments, and give them a little 'something extra' as a bonus for each compliment rec'd. Hold that gag...it gets worse......
