  1. NOT SELECTED, Am I being perceived as a second class nurse?

    After a few years as an ICU nurse, I had to google what "memory care" is. Yes, you are a second class nurse. What is it you are trying to do? Are you trying to be a bedside nurse in a hospital? If so, then your skills as described will not be advanta...
  2. current market for working agency

    RN's can work as LPN's, but do not give up the liability of having "higher" education (http://www.azbn.gov/documents/advisory_opinion/AO Dual Profession & Dual Health Care Licensure_Certification.pdf) I had good experiences with Integrated. While...
  3. BOLC

    Fun things at BOLC? Drinking and fraternizing. Its more camp webelos than benning. Bring a car.
  4. Deciding to get out of military nursing

    Lincoln & Scottsdale merged this month.
  5. Anyone been PROFIS to Landstuhl ICU Recently?

    Any words of wisdom for those pending mobilization?
  6. Options for Army Reserve Nurse

    What were the perks for joining? You may have to repay them. If you ran into issues repaying, I'd go IMA.
  7. Is Nursing in the Military my calling...?

    The advent of the tri-service medical corps can't come quick enough; if only to eliminate the "which branch is better" questions.
  8. Go Guard!

    Its always good to hear about servicemembers who are proud of their units. I'll be the first to admit that units vascilate in performance based on a lot of issues. Hind sight being 20/20: I never appreciated how much the guard's dual mission/funding ...
  9. Go Guard!

    Read it how you want, you clearly missed the very last line on that page. Ask your recruiter why the Arizona & North Carolina National Guards will direct commission nurses, while your state won't. What state is this by the way? If you're uncomfor...
  10. Go Guard!

    Someone's lying to you.... Healthcare Officers | Medical Professional | NATIONAL GUARD
  11. Wounded warrior transitional nursing

    That's a very long road your wishing to take part in. Are you refering to acute care or rehabilitiation nursing in a hospital/ecf or as a nurse case manager assigned to a wounded warrior transition unit?
  12. Women in Combat Arm's Units

    I graduated with a BS in criminal justice and discovered that guys with my qualifications are a dime a dozen. I then saw my sister's paycheck as a nurse and recognized that I could make a decent living and have an exceptional quality of life by enter...
  13. Women in Combat Arm's Units

    Having been an infantryman, forward observer, and military policeman prior to being a nurse, I've come to the conclusion that the quality of "hard working" cannot be limited based on sex. I've seen two hundred pound men, made of pure muscle, who lack...
  14. ASU school of nursing question

    Its been quite some time and many varied units since I was stationed there; guess that lingo has faded.
  15. ASU school of nursing question

    Division, eh? 3/05 myself.
