    Best shoes for nursing

    I love the Hoka One Bondi! I feel like I am walking on a cloud. I also use custom orthotics from my podiatrist.

    Is the CNL more competative for Nurse Residency's

    Which skills allowed during clinicals?

    Which skills allowed during clinicals?

    Hi! I am wondering who establishes the guidelines for the skills that a student is allowed to practice in the hospital? Is it the unit manager and/or charge nurse or is it the preceptor (from the school of nursing)? What do we do if there is a differ...

    COVID-19: Now a good time to go to nursing school and become a nurse?

    Great Article on "Shortage" of Nurses

    UMSON BSN Spring 2021

    Nora, good question! I wish that I had filled out the Conway application. It's taken a little bit of time to build up my confidence. I'm hoping that it's not too late to apply for some of the smaller scholarships.

    I'm in at Shady Grove, my preferred location! I'm so glad that I applied. I am 45 years old and would love to meet other second career nurses and I am also looking forward to the energy and enthusiasm of the younger students. My TEAS was 96.7% and...
