    Taking 4 summer prerequisite classes for pre-ABSN?

    Do these classes have a separate lab component? While it may be doable, these courses are heavy content and just keeping up with the reading for one class will be challenging. You are planning on attempting to take what would be spread out over 15 week semester and would be challenging even then (4 classes probably with labs). Keep in mind that if your GPA drops due to attempting this you risk not being accepted into a nursing program. Have you ever taken a difficult science course over a 5 week summer term? Or any class in a 5 week term? You may be assigned many chapters to read for the next class which may be the following day. I would urge you to reconsider and stick with your original plan of spreading them out.

    Post DNP nurse practitioner certificate

    What specialty of nurse practitioner would you like to pursue? And which counselors did you talk to? You have a completed the three Ps but you still are missing the rest of the courses needed to become a nurse practitioner. It isn't just clinical hours you need the didactic courses that go with those for example if you want to be a family nurse practitioner you need the adult health course is the women's health pediatrics the geriatrics courses not just the clinical hours. And then let's talk about prescriptive how are you going to get that? What kind of DNP did you get? You will need to contact a school that does offer a nurse practitioner program in the specialty you choose and let them evaluate your transcripts.

    Interview a NURSE INFORMATION EXPERT

    Welcome to AN. I see this is your first post. What is a Nurse Abstractor? I have never heard this term. Unfortunately, since you can not verify that anyone on this board is actually a registered nurse (anyone can say anything on the internet forum) it is unlikely that you can verify this. And since the assignment was to interview a nurse in person, it is unlikely that an internet interview will meet the requirements of the assignment.

    What was it like to be a nurse in the 1980s

    OK, what has your research found? What sources are you using? What type of nursing experiences have you found were common? You bet we questioned doctors and the orders just like now. And yes we advocated for our patients. The 80's were changing times. My first year as an RN was 1979. Still wore a nursing cap for one year with the standard while dress. But the following years nurses started wearing pant suits and I stopped wearing my cap.

    Dual relationships and duty to care

    Welcome to AN, I see this is your first post. But, This sounds like homework for say a Professional Nursing Roles class or Community Health class?
  9. Hi, Have you looked to see if Western is part of the NMNEC curriculum? Here si the link. I will try to search to answer you questions. Home Ok looking at the common curriculum, it looks like you will need both statistics & algebra to meet general education courses for BSN. Western is part of the New Mexico Nursing Education Consortium (NMNEC) which will allow you to continue on for ADN without having to repeat courses or take other pre-reqs. You will be able to apply to either NMSU or UNM for BSN. PM me if you have questions.

    Registration Lapse

    Welcome to AN, I see this is your first post. Since you posted under General Nursing Discussion and not for a specific state or country. I am not familiar with NMC or what poll they took. However, it is your responsibility as a nurse to renew licenses in a timely manner. In my state they do not send a reminder. In fact, I do not get a reminder to renew my driver's license either. So as a professional it is your responsibility to renew all certifications (CPR/BLS, etc). Good luck, you will probably not gather any sympathy on this board.
