  1. Career over family?

    It sounds like you made your decision, and I wish you the best! I would never choose my career over my husband, but I'm very fortunate to have a wonderful husband! It's rare that one finds true satisfaction from most employers, and I hear stories a...
  2. Dothan

    Hello all, We are interested in moving to Dothan, but haven't been there in about two decades. Is anyone able/willing to share current market conditions for an RN? I would probably be looking at behavioral health, and have been a nurse since 1...
  3. Hi.

    Would you tell me about your experience at Excelsior? I am currently in the online RN to MSN program and U. Texas at Arlington, but I'm considering changing schools. I already have two bachelor's degrees and a master's degree but UTA still requires that I take a bunch of additional liberal arts general education courses in addition to the BSN nursing courses to complete the degree. At this point, I feel like literature, political science, and history courses are not how I want to spend my time and money. You might have given me an out!

    I'd greatly appreciate your input!

    Thank you.

      Well, Excelsior was MUCH less expensive than most options. I think I ended up having to take 12 or 13 classes, usually one at at time. Many students took more, but I’m a bit neurotic ?

      I had a great experience, and would highly recommend it if the prestige of the school is unimportant  



  4. Insulin Line

    I'm curious how each of your facilities runs insulin line. Specifically, do you allow inmates to complete the FSBS with the glucometer, do you clean glucometer between inmates, wear gloves while administering insulin? I've seen a variety of techniq...
  5. CPOE and noting/reviewing orders

    I'm curious if/how others note computerized orders that go directly to the appropriate discipline. For example, if the correctional provider orders a lab in the EMR and that is communicated directly to the lab personnel, do you as the nurse note or ...
  6. Hello all, For those of you that reside in a state that doesn't allow an "assessment" or nursing diagnosis by an LPN, what have you found to be acceptable documentation for the "assessment" on a SOAP note? Our state does not clearly define "assessme...
  7. Treated LTBI

    If a patient has LTBI and receives treatment, does your facility refer to them with any special terminology? Does your health problems/master problem list still indicate LTBI or is it updated with different terminology? What if they report treatment...
  8. I find myself in a position where I don't have true access to a patient population and don't have access to a DNP or Phd. I've been trying to look into DNP programs, but it appears that those two issues may be tremendous roadblocks. Does anyone kno...
  9. Touro University Nevada

    Thanks for the response! I'm looking at ASU as well, but am very concerned about the practical experiences and finding a preceptor. My current environment is one where I supervised nurses in a non-clinical setting, but I have the ability to influenc...
  10. Touro University Nevada

    Can one only be an educator for this program? I've emailed the school, but haven't received a reply.
  11. Infirmary 23 hour observation

    Thanks everyone for your replies!
  12. Infirmary vs other

    It would depend on the size of the infirmary and the number of nurses. I really enjoyed my time in the infirmary...
  13. LPN documentation on SOAP note

    I am curious how your facilities handle the documentation of "assessment" on a SOAPE note in Arizona. Do you have policies regarding this issue? Do you require that RNs co-sign the note and, if so, what is the significance/understand of the co-sign...
  14. Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Practicum

    What qualifications does a preceptor need to have?
  15. Infirmary 23 hour observation

    Thanks for the reply. Do you get orders for things such as VS frequency?
