  1. Well we are going to have to agree to disagree because my values and morals do affect my business decisions. I wouldn't go and physically threaten or hurt my competition because it is against my values and morals. Marxist ideology is absolutely going to affect the decisions BLM leaders make. BLM and Antifa rioters chanting "this is a revolution!" while attempting to burn the portland federal courthouse is not a coincidence. I find it ironic that BLM utilizes marxist ideology to fight oppression. Marxist countries have oppressed many in Russian and Chinese concentration camps. Take for example Uhyghurs in re education camps in Xinjiang China. These re education camps are nothing more than forced labor camps and are well known for their atrocious human rights violations. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/11/16/world/asia/china-xinjiang-documents.html?auth=link-dismiss-google1ta Communism is not difficult to understand. There is no private ownership of businesses. Businesses are publicly owned. Karl Marx in his communist manifesto calls for revolution to overthrow capitalism. How would you feel if you took the financial risk, and put in the hard work to make your business a success; to later have it confiscated by the government? That is what happens during a communist revolution. Means of production such as farms, factories, and businesses become government property. All in the name of providing better wages for the working class. https://www.britannica.com/topic/communism Like I have said on my previous posts. The problem is police brutality and accountability which is affecting all ethnicities. Police brutality can be addressed by other means than joining a marxist organization. There are institutional policies which are contributing to police brutality and deficits in police accountability. If we want to hold the small percentage of police officers that are breaking the law accountable, these institutional policies must be addressed. One such policy is qualified immunity in the US which provides legal protection to officers. This policy makes it extremely difficult to hold police officer's accountable who misbehave on the job. If nurses, doctors, and teachers can get sued for malpractice then why cant police officers get sued? We as nurses need to have malpractice insurance for such reasons. If police officers could be sued in civil court for malpractice then they would be required to have malpractice insurance just like us. Officers that are consistently sued would eventually be priced out of their malpractice insurance and no longer be able to practice. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qualified_immunity
  2. Your values infleunce the business decisions you make. You might make business decisions that a religous person might not. So, yes your ideology infleunces your behavior. Does your business success depend on your choices? Are your choices not infleunced by your values and morals? If I could change your morals and values would it change the choices you make?

    Yes your are absolutely correct. We are fortunate to have such a good health insurance available to us. It does offer peace of mind in case we need it. I pray non of us do. In regards to PPE what have you been able to find other than surgical masks. I have not been able to find any n95 masks since they are reserved for front line responders. However I have been able to get my hands on the KN95 masks which are the chinese version of the N95. I feel it provides better protection than the surgical masks since they are actually respirators instead of masks. Surgical mask just protect the community from you getting them sick where as respirators protect you from airborn droplets. https://wyze.com/face-masks.html

    Well the jackets are on the thin side so it won't help much in the Winter. They are good for it you get chilled but thats about it. Has anyone heard anything about our clinical rotations coming this Fall. I am curious to find out how the increase in COVID19 cases is going to affect us. Supposedly we won't be working with COVID19 patients but from what I can see hospitals, at least in my area, are at capacity due to covid19 patients. Here in south Texas we are expected to peak in August which is when our program officially starts. I wouldnt mind learning how to provide care to COVID19 patients as long as we have PPE.

    Yeah you can your scrubs where ever you would like and a scrub jacket. On the dress code module on the AOBSN course, they said it had to be navy blue with a patch. I bought 2 nice pairs of scrubs off of Amazon for a decent price. Just be sure to measure yourself before ordering because some of the stores charge a restocking fee if you return your order. Allheart.com is another decent place to get scrubs online.

    Yeah so orientation has two components. The first component is an online orientation through Canvas where you watch videos, take quizzes, and complete various tasks. If you have all 100's then you are good to go. The second component is an in person orientation. This year the in person orientation was canceled. Bummer I already bought flight tickets, hotel reservations, and a car rental prior to them canceling. O well, what can we do but adapt. So due to COVID19 we are doing the in person orientation online on July 22, 2020. Below is a portion of an email I received from the AOBSN: Hello incoming JR I students, Congratulations on your acceptance to the AO BSN Program. The mandatory JR I Orientation will be held virtually, through Teams, on July 22ND. We will miss the in-person event but believe you can receive all the information you need to be successful in the program in the virtual environment. The day will start at 9am. An agenda will be posted prior to the orientation.

    This is great advice. I pretty much did the same thing.

    Study the notes and the videos. That's what I focused on and was able to get an A.

    yes not the t spot test. They do the quantiferon test which is also a blood test.

    Yeah I did one blood test throught labcorp. UTA will put in a order at labcorp for you but you have to request it through the immunization office.

    Yeah I havent really looked into obamacare until now. My health insurance has always been free through my employer but unfortunately I am going to discontinue my employment during the Summer so I need a decent health insurance plan.

    Hey so I went to the government website and I was offered some kind of monthly credit towards insurance. It would be nice if we could use that credit towards the University health insurance since it does seem like decent coverage. It is definately something you want in the a midst of a pandemic. I went ahead and made flight, hotel, and car rental reservations for the July 22 orientation. I'm pretty psyched. I just hope UTA doesnt cancel it or change the date LOL.

    COVID - Cancelled clinicals

    Here is an artical discussing your concern regarding simulated clinical sites. https://www.dallasnews.com/news/public-health/2020/03/21/governor-greg-abbott-waives-regulations-to-bring-more-nurses-into-the-workforce/

    UTA does not have to lower their standards to allow more students to attend their program. All they have to do is increase their number of seats available. Increased teaching capacity doesnt equate to entry of low quality candidates like the article tries to imply. The program would still attract highly competitive students since it is the ONLY online BSN program for non nurses that finishes within 15 months in Texas. I searched other programs and they are either on campus for 15 months or online for 2 years. The current waitlist for entry this year to the AOBSN has many students who are high quality candidates.

    I uploaded scanned copies of my immunizations and hep b titer result. I followed the attachment they sent us in the acceptance email for inplace. It tells you exactly what needs to be uploaded. I had to upload the same vaccination records several times for mutiple vaccines. Yes I had to put dates as well as titer results for hep B.
