  1. Transferring WGU Credits

    WGU is around $4K each term (6 months and you can complete as many classes as you want in each term)
  2. Time Management

    I misswrote - they don't change 3 times; they change twice. I get 2-3 NAs though.
  3. In Search For The Perfect Nursing Job...

    So I'm a new grad at 60 (graduated last year at the start of Covid) and worked C-19 testing/vaccination clinics until I got a job in an ER (go figure), which I thought was going to be my dream job (very small rural ER and you do everything from UC to...
  4. Time Management

    I gave NAs assignments at 2000 and I have no idea where they went. I wonder if they were as overwhelmed as we were. I tried at 0700 but the day NA said the night one should have done what I asked him to do and by that time I was so over everything I ...
  5. Nurses Caring for Nondiabetics After an Insulin Injection

    Pretty much all our patients on TPN get insulin. I had a covid patient on massive steroids getting insulin but she was not diabetic. I've only worked for 3 months but that's what's come up so far. so plan was BG q.4 and cover according to proto...

  7. Time Management

    Last night was a *** show and I'm looking for pointers. New grad; licensed for 9 months and 3 months into first real hospital job (step down ICU). I'm also 60 years old (and I wonder if that has anything to do with it). Our unit does V/S q.4, fo...
  8. Where Do Minneapolis/St Paul Nurses Live?

    I live in south Minneapolis and have biked to work locations from St Paul to brooklyn park to edina and SLP. Minneapolis has great transport options
  9. Minneapolis/St Paul VA

    I work at the MSP VA. I would say floor nursing is good but all the clinics (endo, GI, onc, etc.) are kind of little kingdoms and can be incredibly difficult if you don't get along with the NM. I'm floating all around and there are some really good o...
  10. Transferring WGU Credits

    I got my BSN in December and I'm looking to get a FNP; not that interested in DNP. From what I've found, BSN-FNP has just around 20 more credits compared to MSN-FNP. WGU's BSN-MSN is 36 units so it really doesn;t make sense to me to do WGU. Has anyo...

    If you're on the fast-track system, weeks. If you're not fast-tracked, then forever and a day...
  12. permanent VA job after temporary

    thanks so much! I got fingerprinted yesterday, along with the physical exam so I'm thinking a start date is getting closer. ?
  13. VA hiring process 2020

    Yeah, I've run into issues. I emailed vetpro and it took them a week to respond. I haven't tried their "fix" but I'm not really optimistic, but we'll see.
  14. permanent VA job after temporary

    I am in the process of credentialing (new grad RN) for a 13-month RN outpatient (I believe) job at the VA hospital in MN. I think I'm going to be working in their respiratory unit but I really don't know. The job title seems to be "care manager"?? ...
  15. VA hiring process 2020

    I don't know if you are still on allnurses, but how is this working out? I was offered a 13-month temporary position and I am almost done with vetpro (and the expedited stuff). setting up the physical exam next. are you enjoying the VA? do you think ...
