    I thought my first semester was easy. I work 3 12 hour night shifts and my first semester I had 5 credit hours. The rest of the semesters will be 6 credit hours. It will take me 3 years to complete. The workload this past semester was definitely doable. I liked it because it was structured and it fit my lifestyle. It will be interesting to see how the difficulty increases! I am hoping to work full time for as long as possible.

    I thought my first semester was easy. My first clinical is this spring. You find your own sites and arrange agency and preceptor agreements. I'm nervous about this part! However, when I interviewed before I was accepted they discussed sites that would be suitable for each clinical. I'll let you know how it goes. I like online education because it's structured and I work 3 12 hour night shifts so it suits my lifestyle.

    From my information it looks like they charge out of state tuition. In-State is $246 per credit hour and Out-of-State is $428 per credit hour. You could call the online and distance education department to double check.

    Hi there! I am going to Ball State and I just completed my first semester of the FNP program. My first two classes were nursing theory and nursing information and technology. This fall I have research and data analysis. Congrats on starting the program soon to both of you! Feel free to message me if you have any specific questions.

    Short Staffed - Vent

    I can't believe that! Our RTs are worth their weight in gold. I rely on them frequently. I don't see how you get anything done!

    Short Staffed - Vent

    Update: I have just accepted a job in PACU. I've worked in cardiac recovery for 2 years now. The short staffing and management issues have continued and I'm tired. I'm ready for something new!

    Reason for Leaving

    I'm looking for suggestions on how to answer the dreaded "reason for leaving" question. I currently work on a cardio vascular thoracic recovery unit and am applying for a PACU position. Mainly because of staffing and administrative decisions but also because our unit is becoming more like an LTAC and I enjoy recovering patients. Any ideas?? I was thinking maybe change of specialty.

    So far the news has been well received at work! I have been congratulated by management and staff. A doctor overheard the nurses talking about it and congratulated me too! I get my name put on a plaque on our unit. For my reward I decided to buy myself a CCRN pin and badge holder. I earned it and want people to see it! :)

    :tku: Well the first question was about an overdose and I definitely didn't know the answer. I hate when you don't know the answer to the first question on a test! I was sweating those 25 unscored ones too! They make you feel like you are going to fail. One question was right off Dennison but the answer choices were different. The content on the Pass CCRN exams is so similar to the exam. They helped me a ton. I think studying with the Gasparis DVDs and Pass CCRN tests is the perfect studying plan.

    Or is it 115/125 if 25 questions don't count? Oh well, doesn't really matter.

    I kept my test date a secret for as long as I could, hehe. I passed!!! :balloons: I got 115/150 which is almost exactly what I got on my last two practice tests. I'm so glad it's over and it feels like a great achievement! I haven't decided on a reward yet :nuke:
