    I found so many preceptorstates for my FNP

    I am re-entering school after having an emergency leave a couple of years ago. I just glanced at this and it bears more digging into, but hey... I'll gladly pay $55 if it will help me find a preceptor for my last semester! Thanks for the info!

    Is Hospice nursing for me?

    I have worked out in the field in hospice and am now inpatient. The upside? I love going to peoples homes and educating them and answering questions and helping them get what they need to care for their loved one. Many people are quite appreciative o...
  4. Eh.... it happens to all of us. Don't let it get to you. You know now, and I can guarantee that you won't make the same mistake again! Kudos to your instructor for using a teachable moment wisely. Best of luck to you! You will be an awesome nurse!
  5. I am so over all the paper writing, article reading, medatrax charting, and all of it! There is not enough hours in one day to do all required of us, yet somehow, we have all found a way to continue plodding along... day after day, hour after hour, m...

    Bullying online is NOT harmless

    Thank you for your insight. I also have seen the harsh remarks, but because I have not been here in awhile, I chose to not say anything. However, I do agree with some of the others about you saying "nasty nurses"..... some of us, myself included, ha...

    Termed...After the Fact?

    Yes. I did. It has now cost me a job. Two lawyers from my area won't discuss it with me. I just can't believe it can be changed from a resignation to a termination after the fact. Thank you for your vote of confidence though! I appreciate it! [emoji...

    Termed...After the Fact?

    Termed...After the Fact?
