    childrens hospital

    and yes,in most hospitals ive been to immunocompromised inpatients are all being visited ONLY by their play therapists and teachers at bedside only outpatient immunocompromised patients do have a common playroom/school in hospital setting, outpatients meaning,patients who are only on scheduled chemo /BT sessions ....:)

    childrens hospital

    opss i just noticed this thread I have been to different pediatric hospitals in different places the common denominator is that each floor is 'condition' based,meaning then,they dont come in the same age group but then there is this playroom in each floor wher younger kids could play and there is this playroom/school in the hospital where the older ones attend and join some activities prepared by play therapists/school teachers.For those who are not quite able to mobilize and or who are not ready to socialize yet,a school teacher/play therapist will come to the patient bedside and give these kids assignments or play with them at a scheduled time. Most of neonate/infant patients are placed in one floor.They have playtherapists to visit them everday. If it is a specialty facility,then these patients are categorized per age group. I hope this gives you a brief idea....

    Forensic Nursing (FN): Programs

    Studying nursing hasnt been easy for me so at one stage ,i courageously approached my father if i could shift my course to a different area...and when i said criminology...he just disapproved. I dont understand it very much but it seems forensic nursing has got a bit to do with being an investigator if m not mistaken... i wonder now,m 38...do u think its still worth seeking if i take an interest into pursuing this field? opinions..u'r all welcome. thanks

    Retrogression Is Not Over

    Thanks for the reply.. Had my 1140 approved in 2003,yes I did have my visa screen alright. Just when the embassy asked me for an updated employment contract during the interview,my petitioner got me do the NCLEX first before they'd give me what was requested of them...I admit,had the big share of fault because Ive always refused to sit for the said test....although I was very aware that my employer wanted me to have the test done before getting to the US of A....and by the way,have never been to the US nor did I try to apply for any other visa category....

    Retrogression Is Not Over

    Hi. Mine case is said to be pending.The date of interview(July'06),i was asked to present an employment contract from my petitioner..The latter then got me do the NCLEX first before giving me the said contract.Luckily but not so...passed the NCLEX in October and got the said contract early November which was obviously 'already late' ....Have had my medical done as well...What would you suggest will I be expecting where my case stands?July '03's my priority date. Thanks ever so much.

    NCLEX in Gearmany

    to be honest,i dont think there will be a problem if you just have your ATT. That's a good thing,you and your husband are already in Germany....I live here in Ireland and a non EU that's why i needed the tourist visa that time...cheers!
