juniper222 specializes in Pre Nursing.

I am a 54 year old male who has found a new passion in nursing.  I am currently working on my pre nursing requirements for a program that will take me to a BSN.  I very much enjoy meeting new people and working with them to a common goal.

    Gloves at all times?

    Seems like if contact is involved , gloves should be used. I don't think gloves are always needed just by being in the room unless protocol demands. I spent 5 months shadowing RT(R)s and they almost never gloved up. But then again, they didn't give out medications. That person was a little snide though.
  3. You just posted a thread on how folk medicine is "witchcraft" and posted derogatory statements about other people's beliefs. Now you're here posting that people who have religious beliefs have no rights. I think it will be a loooong time before you are ready for the medial field. You need to stop forcing your views on other people like you claim the Cristians do. And stop using inflammatory language when you post. You might want to review the terms of use for this site...

    Prediabetes Now Common Among Teens and Young Adults

    My point was to show how the industry manipulates policy. I do not state whether GMOs are harmful or not. Industry dumped a lot of money into preventing the bill from passing. They also advertise fast food. Corporations plainly do not want the unhealthy contents of food known to us. All of these things are important to keep in mind when looking into the issue of prediabetes. The rest of my post show a correlation between the schools and soda machines. Who do you think would be behind putting those there?

    Low Science GPA

    Hello Latricia, Some schools throw out the lower grades on retaken courses and some include those, but re-average. I would contact a school counsellor ASAP. Many schools have a minimum GPA of 3.0. In that case the minimum you should shoot for is closer to 3.5 (minimum). In order to be competitive you will want to be well above the minimum GPA. I don't know why schools accept applications below a GPA that they know will not be accepted, I guess it's in case they get a poor turn-out. One mistake many applicants make is to overload themselves with courses in order to get in faster. This makes getting good grades much harder because you are spreading yourself too thin. Go slower if necessary, and get the best grades you can. For the TEAS I would get a study guide and practice a little every day. There are several posts here about student experiences you will find helpful. Remember, nursing is tough to get into, but so are many other medical related fields. Good luck

    She applied at a different facility and passed the pre-employment drug screen. Sloppy lab work seems to be all too common unfortunately. With that in mind, anytime there is a fail, a immediate retest should be conducted in my opinion. I know there are a lot if people who think if a person fails a test they are automatically guilty, but I like to give the benefit of the doubt until all other possibilities are ruled out. We are talking about people's lives here.

    Prediabetes Now Common Among Teens and Young Adults

    Not too long ago there was a movement to have food manufacturers indicate if a product had GMOs. The huge corporations dumped a fortune into lobbying and ended up winning. I guess it's none of our business what we eat!? I don't know how schools are now, but there were soda machines in all the schools in the recent past. I wonder what deals were made with the education system to put them there. I also think that the obesity epidemic from fast food has much to do with the prediabetes issue
  8. You haven't learned anything from the "witchcraft" forum.
  9. Transgender reassignment is not a life saving surgery. Nor is abortion in many cases. That being said, I would never refuse post op care to anyone.

    Managers: Remaining Objective with All Employees

    Just the fact that you think about this shows that you are self aware. Those are the traits of a good manager. I had a boss once who liked to be buddies with certain employees. He would give them all the big bonuses, best tasks etc. He wanted to include me into that group, but I keep my distance. My reasons, it was not a fair practice. As long as you don't let these nurses take advantage of your friendship, and use fair and sound judgment, you will be fine.

    Who wants to hire a graduate nurse at 55?

    That thought never occurred to me. Perhaps she could omit that information on education history.

    Tele . . . What? The Evolution of Using Telehealth in Patient Care

    At the state of the art we have the Da Vinci system. Although it requires a surgeon to be nearby, In the future, with the improvement of our networks, something like this could be transported to remote locations for life saving procedures. In the field of radiology, the use of AI to diagnose the images is in development. The development of color X-rays is also on the horizon. The future of medicine looks like it will be an exciting time!

    I regret going into nursing-what should i do?

    I agree ,Just a quick look into RN on "Indeed" for my area pulls up 5 pages full of nursing positions, some of which do not demand over one year experience. If it's not too much of a burden, you might consider relocating. I would also think that jobs demand will fluctuate a bit. I remember all sorts of posts on the internet about the flood of new grads into the radiology field, and RTRs were giving up looking for work. That changed after a year, and there was a demand again.

    Is it possible for a manager to smile too often?

    Never do that when giving bad news.

    I misunderstood her post. I thought she failed a test at the school, not her job. If that was the case and then the school would have been responsible. You would not "make the school pay", your attorney would seek that. But then I already cleared that up when she explained it to me. The point was also made that she retested elsewhere and was negative. This indicates that her failed test was in error. She did nothing wrong.

    Get the manual for the printer. When someone asks you a question about it, give them the manual. Or you could say "dammit Jim, I'm a nurse , not an engineer!"
