    CCFCCP= coo coo for coco puffs. We had a Dr that used to write this occasionally as a dx, when they were definitely in that category. We all know the pt

    Med school drop out, now a CRNA. ask me anything...

    ABSN is an accelerated BSN, which leads you to get your RN. This along with a couple of years (at least) in an ICU setting, are required to apply for CRNA school. Schools vary on GPA and other requirements

    What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    I think that if we become socialized medicine, or even if the US remains privatized, I could see cuts to some services (especially dialysis and related), especially in relation to age and specific health condition/comorbidities. I wonder if it will b...

    Any nursing lab jobs?

    Acute NPs practice in the area that they have some years of practice in. That said, you would need X years of practice in infection control. But honestly, most hospitals don't put an NP in those positions, at least none that I've ever heard of. The R...

    Any nursing lab jobs?

    Still no. Labs are drawn, then sent to lab for processing by machine or lab tech. No nurse involved other than with orders. NP may order the labs and follow up. RN may carry out orders (although phlebotomy or MA usually) and follow up. In 30 years, o...

    What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    I live in the area, and from the news, that's how I understand it to be also. The officers were there to arrest/serve the warrant, had nothing to do with getting the warrant. The lies were told by the investigating unit, which obtained the warrant

    What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    I did say "not curriculum, but happened at school" just to demonstrate some lame brain ideas that are out there that are just as bad as racism, and actually it is racism if taught to think a certain way about someone based on race. My sons are watchi...

    What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    My son told me that his son's teacher (white) told him (grandson) that it's okay to expect this and that, and it's okay to treat another child (white) bad (hitting) because of the racial inconsistencies. My grandson and this child were fighting over ...

    What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    As a white person, who has biracial children and grandchildren, all who have experienced racism: I will never condescend to tell them how they are allowed to feel about race relations. My kids have told me that it's often "white folks" who tell them ...
