    Will my EMT experience help get a job as an ER-Nurse?

    Hi SOCAL! Here's my 2 cents if you're interested. I would definitely list your EMT-B experience. It shows you have prior knowledge of emergency situations and assessment skills. I would only recommend becoming a Paramedic if you are going spend some...

    What is the drug of choice in your area?

    Lots and lots of meth, opiates, then ETOH. Marijuana isn't even considered a drug anymore around here. Did I say meth? So tired of meth!

    Transfers who go POV

    In one of my ERs, we have a liability waiver form that the patient signs if they decide to travel POV. If the physician disagrees with the POV transfer and the patient refuses an ambulance transport, then we fill out the AMA and explain everything to...

    Paramedic School before i start my BSN?

    SoCal, First of all, best wishes for your goals and waiting to hear from nursing schools. I don't think any type of education is waste, but you need to keep in mind what your end goal is - to become a NP in the ED. If you look at all the paramedic nu...

    University of Louisiana-Lafayette online RN-BSN

    I finally finished the program on Friday. I thought it was a good program and fair. I did learn a lot with respect to research, writing papers, and leadership aspects. The Capstone class was not difficult: I expected it to be really hard. I certainly...

    Moved to the North Carolina Nursing forum for more of a response.
  11. 1mrsbs, I was apprehensive about writing papers also since it's been 20+ years for me. They walk you through the first assignment and supply multiple resources to assist you with paper writing. It took me a long time to write that first one, but it's...

    I started last semester in October. I'm pleased with the program so far. 353 & 354 were not bad at all and I was able to work full time while studying for my classes. Good luck everyone!

    You should have received a degree plan with the semesters marked. I did when I was accepted there. Do you have other general courses to do? I would talk to your adviser and explore other options of taking the gen ed courses somewhere else (comm colle...
