    Chamberlain online FNP

    As I mentioned before, Chamberlain (as I imagine are most online programs) are best for self motivated people who are able and willing to put the time in. The BEST thing about the Chamberlain program is that they purchase and FNP review for you in t...

    Chamberlain online FNP

    Walgreens and CVS are constantly taking students. They have a pretty streamlined process, just don't miss the application deadline. I did a portion of my first clinical session there (I ended up adding an urgent care, because the CVS' in norther...

    Chamberlain online FNP

    sorry it took so long to respond! I graduated in Feb 2016 and just passed my ANCC exam. I am grateful for a program that allows the flexibility that I needed in my circumstances, but Chamberlain is, in my opinion, similar to a self study program. ...

    Any Chamberlain RN-to-BSN that have gone on to FNP?

    I received my RN to BSN from Chamberlain in December 2010, and I am currently in Chamberlain's FNP program. You are given $100 off per credit hour as an alumni who is attending Chamberlain for a Master's degree, which was a plus. I had heard (throu...

    Magnesium Sulfate Policy in your hospital

    I was glad to find this thread, because there has been some discussion as to what is considered standard of care for Magnesium patients. I work in a mother/baby unit, and our mag patients are considered the same as all other patients, so they are ...

    Welcome to Mother-Baby Musings!

    Wow, 75%! That is quite high! I'd say my hospital is around 30% (although our hospital DID just put an end to mothers having an option for a VBAC). I think c-sections have become so common that we need to sit back and remember that we are performi...

    Drug testing Labor patients

    AndreaRN23, I'm surprised about things not happening after baby is found positive. CPS is involved in all cases where baby is + for anything other than MJ (sometimes opiates depending on the patient's situation) At our hospital, we test premat...

    Help New to L&D

    I bought the book on "Perinatal Nursing" by Simpson through AWHONN. It does a good job of giving textbook information without being 'blah' like a textbook. As far as the most important information to know before going to labor and delivery, I'm afr...
