    So...What Kind of Nursing Task Do You LIKE?

    Wound care, IM injections, patient and family education, and discharge teaching. I love to educate patients and talk to them about their disease process, life, and current events, lol. Unfortunately at times due to our hectic shift, we nurses don't have enough time to it. ☺

    May 1st Start Date WGU

    I'm right behind you guys, June 1st start date ! So excited and nervous. I agree with featherzRN, join the RN to BSN group on Facebook they are awesome. I've been a member since Jan. (a silent lurker) and they are very helpful and welcoming of new students like us. They're like a little family and they have answers and suggestions to just about any question you have about the program and the courses. The only thing is reading the topics or post is like reading a foreign language at times because they refer to the courses in their abbreviations...then I'm totally lost, lol!
  8. Thanks for the info TheCommuter, RN!! I will check it out. My problem also is math retention. I just took Stats this past fall and forgot 80% of the info already! If I don't use it, I'll lose it...thank God I got an A. Hopefully you will get your May 1st start!
  9. Thanks for the heads up CNRN_Cali! I will make an appt with my doctor asap to have that info signed off as well. Its good to see a few of us Cali nurses starting around the same time! :)
  10. Hey Cali nurses! I'm hopefully starting the program June 1st (I'm from Northern Cal).Transcripts are in, just dreading the readiness assessment, I have math phobia!

    Unrealistic expectations of nurses.

    Great post and unfortunately it's true. I've been a nurse for a total of 14 years as an LVN and recently an RN. I've seen the changes in nursing. Nursing is definitely a noble profession and I love it. I just can't imagine doing anything else. I love patient care, providing teaching, actually evaluating outcomes, interacting with my patients and their families, and most importantly active listening. I hate for my patients to feel or sense that they are taking too much of my time, but the reality is that nurses are in and out of the rooms because they are so busy! Nursing shouldn't be as if your patients are on an assembly line. I've worked in LTC for many years and it's just as demanding as your ERs, ICUs, CCUs, Med/Surgs, etc. That's why I now work in home health and hospice nursing because I feel that I can provide that quality, safe, and one-on-one care that my patient need...just my preference. The pay isn't the optimal hospital pay, but hey I didn't become a nurse for the pay. The highlight of my day is the appreciation, thank you, or a hug I receive from a patient or family member. I congratulate all of the good nurses out there. Be proud, you are doing a great job!

    NCLEX Tips - One I Never Knew

    Yes. I took the NCLEX with the earplugs and it was VERY helpful.

    Well, I believe in the PVT also. Considering I'm from Cali which doesn't participate in the quick results, it was a no brainer. But there's nothing like that confirmation of seeing your name and license number on the BRN website.
