    GCU RN-BSN 2019 Capstone

    I was on the old capstone class, so I dont know the answer for sure.....but from reading a few other replies on here, that 100 hr requirement is just you keeping a log of the time one puts into the capstone class....you just keep track on how long one puts into each "requirement" of the Capstone class. I would say..ask your student advisor, but the last 1 I had was pretty much useless,lol Maybe the 1 you have is better.

    GCU RN-BSN 2019 Capstone

    Grand Canyon has always given out grades....never been just a pass/fail as for as I know. Highest GPA is a 4.0.
  3. Anyone looking for a job that entails patient care at various Govt clinics. The clientele are Govt employees, but you are a contractor. Depending on the clinic where one works, it mainly centers on clients walking in, not feeling well, want BP, BS checked, normally very basic stuff. As well respond to building emergencies. Some clinics do work physicals that include Hearing/Audio tests, mask fitting, EKG, Spirometry. All training is provided and it isnt that difficult. Most health units are in the DC area, a few in Baltimore. I believe they are even looking for a RN in Norfolk. The pay is fair, benefits are so-so (just being honest) The employer is Spectrum Healthcare Resources. PM me if you have any questions. I am not a recruiter, just a RN that works at one of the health units.

    Capella RN-BSN Flexpath-My experience

    most Rn to BSN programs do not have clinicals....most are all about writing papers..
  10. I had something similar happen to me last yr. I had an interview then a week later a walk thru of the unit was set up. In between that time I had another job interview and they offered it to me on the spot and I took it. I emailed the other place back and explained to them that they had offered me the job and as much as would have enjoyed working at their unit, I felt this position was a good fit as I knew others working their. Just keep it polite and they will appreciate that you took the time and notified them

    Help Me Decide

    I'm not a School nurse, but do Occupational health which has its similarities,lol You mention in one school you would be working with a RN you like and 1 not so much. If your spending a lot of time with someone....best to choose the 1 you enjoy working for.......

    Advice?

    Whats to be embarrassed about? Some people dont get on with their lives until much later on in their life, and some never do!! Not all programs require one to be a CNA prior to being a nurse. One should take the time and check out the different schools...LPN..RN....all have different criteria. Gl

    RN to BSN--Grand Canyon University

    I was told different things about the # of classes...was confusing.....I didnt have to take 2 of the "nursing" classes (ethics and the community 1) but I still had to take 2 more "anything" classes...and they were useless..1 was a very very basic research class,lol When it comes down to it..it is a $$$$$ grab. I took those 2 anything classes after Capstone. Some say u cant double up right away.....but I know those that have. Some were able to switch profs easily, while others had issues....it is what it is Congrats Howlee....Its a nice feeling to have it done with
