  1. Specific question about UW DNP program

    Thanks so much, that's exactly what I was looking for!
  2. American nurse in Brazil

    You would make more money teaching English as a foreign language there. TEFL. You could teach in schools or even teach English to people in other countries on your computer. Honestly that would be much more fun then trying to legally be a nurse in...
  3. Hi, So I'm a US RN considering applying for a nursing job in Saudi Arabia or the Middle East. I've lived abroad before and am just curious about how living on the compound works. When I go abroad, I like to make friends with locals and learn t...
  4. Just wondering, has anyone that got their BSN through WGU been accepted to UW's DNP program? Does anyone know how many are accepted each cohort out of how many applicants? Thanks.
  5. right med, right dose, wrong route... ouchhhh

    wouldn't epi raise your BP? I guess peripherally it would lower it...but centrally raise it?
  6. Hi all, I see a lot of the RN to BSN programs online are research paper heavy. I'm wondering if there is a program that is more test heavy as I'm really good at tests? Thanks!

  10. Home health or hospice?

    I didn't mean to imply that home health or hospice aren't stressful in their own way. I am a good hospital nurse and owe my skills to my years as an acute care nurse. I still believe I would be good at hospice and am inquiring about home health to ...
  11. Hi all! Just wondering if you must be working as an RN while you are attending WGU's RN to BSN program. Also, if you have to be working, do you have to be working acute care or is something like home health ok? Thanks! Z
  12. Home health or hospice?

    Hi all, Due to hospital nursing being really stressful for me I'm looking to cut back and change possibly either to home health or hospice. I have a feeling I'd really be good at hospice but don't know anything about home health in case I can't get ...
  13. SageTXRN, Thanks for the info. Do you still live/work in RGV? It is kind of disheartening that most hospitals in South Texas are all for profit organizations. I guess I'm spoiled up here in Washington State where not-for-profit is how we do thin...
  14. Hello! So I'm looking to relocate eventually to the South Florida area and wondering if there's any hospitals that nurses would say are better generally and have an acceptable/doable nurse patient ratio. It seems all the hospitals are for-profit grr....
  15. C'mon I know there's someone with info!
