    Please Help Me! I’m Over It!!

    I just had to join the conversation. In total agreement with all previous responses from Kitiger, amoLucia, Crystal Wings and the others. I highly suggest that you go way, way back in the private duty and home health subforums and research numerous...

    As I was told one time by a wise colleague, "You can be right, and you can be dead right".

    Nursing Care Plan for Covid Patients

    Just a first impression: how can a person have a readiness for better nutrition when all they can concentrate on is getting that next breath? JMHO Sorry! Reread your OP -- mild. My comment above probably does not apply here.

    Starting Capella for BSN....

    I believe the list on the BRN website is only for programs originated in the state of CA.
  6. Instead of just offering money, why don't they provide non-punitive rest leaves for recharging, paid, even if only at half pay, or 3/4 pay rates? Maybe if these people could rest, some of them might stick with the jobs.

    Well, there's the standard "I don' wanna!"

    D in Developmental Psychology

    If that course is a requirement for any program you plan on applying to, you have to retake it. Required courses won't be accepted unless C or higher grade.

    What would you do?

    Mentally drained and fed up with LPN Program

    Be very careful as the instructor could very well use this turn of events to keep you from successfully finishing. Some instructors manufacture situations to trip up students that don’t figure out how to cope with the mind games.

    How to Give Constructive Feedback

    Add to the habit of always showing up late, the joy of passive-aggressive, non-veiled, hostility toward the coworker, and you can be certain that person will never come to work on time.
