  1. Staph Aureus vs MRSA

    If a patient has 4+ staph aureus on their bacterial superficial wound culture (swab of a rash on her chest) - is this contagious? Is a patient having staph aureus found on the skin considered to have "impetigo"? She asked if she should avoid her gra...
  2. Best way to study for OCN exam?

    JovigirlRN THanks for your response. I decided to take the test in early 2012 instead of late 2011 due to change in priorities! The link to the amazon site did not work, do you happen to have another link for this so I can see what you recommended? T...
  3. Best way to study for OCN exam?

    Hey everyone! I am studying for the OCN exam also. Thanks for posting in this thread... I am terrible with standardized testing, but I feel over the years I have improved. Let's hope that this mind-set comes with me during the test! I am in the ONS ...
  4. As I prepare to return to graduate school, I would ultimately like to earn a terminal degree in nursing. My primary school that I want to go to is NYU, but they do not have a BSN to DNP program. However it is a program in the making.... but when is...
  5. Hello all, I know that Hunter College Adult NP program was on hold until the end of 2011, but today I saw "SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY". Does anyone have the scoop on this? Please do share, thanks :) NYCRN6
  6. Cancer Immunology - Interferon alfa-2a

    I have multiple times. I still don't know the answer; it doesn't state clearly. If you have a website of recommendation please feel free to send it over. Thank you
  7. Hello! I am currently researching dermatology side effects to Interferon alfa-2a, alfa-2b and Interleukin 2. In midst of my research I have some confusion with distinguishing between: Interferon alfa-2a Intergeton alfa-2b Pegylated Interferon alfa-2...
  8. I also think of college loans as well. It scares me to think that when I get out I will have possibly 10-100K student loans (depending on grad school I attend, if I can work FT or PT, my institution's reimbursement program, etc). Most likely I will b...
  9. Thanks for the article. I read it, and ALSO the comments. It is pretty sad how some student and experienced doctors think of NP's. They must not work in a great institution because NP's are highly looked upon here. If I were anyone here I would st...
  10. another thing i have been looking at is duke university's bsn to dnp program.... it looks pretty impressive. i live in nyc and they require you to be on campus 3-4 weekends a year and that is it. what are your thoughts? http://nursing.duke.edu/modul...
  11. I think a lot of what DNP is - is leadership courses and also the most terminal degree in nursing (in addition to PhD). Instead of not having patient contact they can use the evidence based practice that the PhD prepared nurses have researched and pu...
  12. Thanks for your post. Do you practice in New York? I think DNP is a great degree and probably for our lifetime we will be explaining what our role is. It will be embedded into our culture as we get older and more people will accept the scope of pract...
  13. Good evening, I am looking to go back to school in Spring 2012 in New York for an Advanced Degree. Recently in October the IOM reported The Future of Nursing. I read about 100 pages... essentially they want us nurses to have the FULL extent of ed...
  14. Hello! I just wanted to reach out and see if there were anyone interested in becoming my mentor! I moved to NYC about a year ago and I miss having an older, wiser, more experienced nurse to look up to and ask all my questions to. I am 25, very motiva...
  15. MSKCC just general questions

    EXCELLENT place to work. They treat you so well and have the best pay in NY. Everyone who works in NY knows about the culture of MSKCC in regards to patients and employees. They really push professional development and leadership. Everyone who works ...
