    I've been debating to go back for NP for a while now, it's always been in the back of my mind. Some nurses more experienced than me said that they make more than NPs and there really isn't a point in going back to school. I also have a lot of loans so I'm not sure if its worth it. Also, I've heard the jobs are saturated now and its hard to find practicums. Do you agree?

    CNI College in Orange, CA

    I also attended CNI a few years ago when it was $50-60k. I went there recently to ask some questions because a friend wanted to enroll. It is now $74K. They also changed their admission process: point system, interview, ATI (score >65? I think), healthcare experience helps. I have no complaints about that school and of course its hard to work especially with scheduling in any RN associate degree program. I don't recommend working, if you do only less than 20 hours a week. It really depends where you are in life. If you're in a hurry and you feel like you don't want to wait in a community college in a waiting list and don't mind being in debt then go for it. If you're in your 20's and don't want to be in debt and have a lot of time then I say go to a community college. It really depends on what you want. If you do end up going to a trade/tech RN school, I recommend saving a lot of money in case of an emergency and/or extra unexpected fees. Also, keep in mind some of my classmates had to pay up to $800/month depending on the loan DURING the program. If you have a good support system, parents, significant other that can help financially then that would be doable. So theres so many things to think about. Good luck!

    Riots/2nd Outbreak/Ebola is back

    Hi, Are any of you guys worried about the riots having a second COVID outbreak? I am super worried about the world. Also, I found out that Ebola came back in Congo. I'm trying not to be anxious but how can you not as a nurse right now. 😞 Heres a link to the Ebola coming back: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/01/world/africa/ebola-outbreak-congo.html
  4. I recently got exposed to a patient who got admitted for a diagnosis not related to COVID, or so we thought. I had a surgical mask and only in the patients room for maybe 30 minutes giving medications. Later on, we found out she was COVID+. The patient was not coughing and she was also not getting breathing treatment. I have so much anxiety about this. I think I am at a low risk for getting it? I know a handful of other nurses that have COVID already and I can't stop worrying. Please give me comforting words. Btw, my hospital said not to isolate only if I have symptoms. I think thats a load of crap.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. Did you isolate yourself right away or only when you started having symptoms?
