  1. The waiting game, when is it okay to check in?

    I think checking in is a great idea! I agree with Zmansc.. Even if you don't get the position now, you never know if another interviewer will accept the position and/or work out. Make them remember you! Checking in makes you seem eager and responsibl...
  2. How many patients are you expected to see daily?

    Thanks all! I'm feeling a little more justified now! Just seeing 25 pts/day (being a new grad).. I'm charting during lunch and coming in early just to keep up!! Frankly, I never want to get to the point where I would see 50 during an 8hr shift. I jus...
  3. How did you land your first NP job?

    I'm in Nv now, and graduated in 2013:-) I was offered 2 positions before I graduated. One from working as an RN at the hospital and the other from doing clinicals during school. So luckily I never had to interview. My preceptor texted me saying come ...
  4. How many patients are you expected to see daily?

    We have 1 MA for the clinic, so I do all of my own referrals, immunizations, etc.. They even told me I should be helping check people in! If all I had was otitis and URIs then I could see more of course, but I may have a 2 day old with jaundice, then...
  5. So I am a fairly new grad (graduated Sept 2013). I am working in a clinic where I see newborns to advanced age. The majority are pediatric (about 80%). Today we had a "meeting" where I was told that I need to increase the amount of patients I see per...
  6. Pursuing a BSN while traveling...

    Hi! I am currently on a travel assignment and I am doing my BSN online..1 more semester and I will be done...It hasn't been anymore difficult for me than when I was at home..It makes no difference if I am sitting at my computer in Washington or Texas...
  7. Any Stonybrook University MSN students?

    I am currently in their RN-BSN distance learning. I was planning on doing the FNP program also:cry:...As soon as it was announced one of the professors told me that it was due to the budget crisis and at this point they have no plans to restart the p...

    Hahahaha, that's hilarious..I have been falling asleep and the tune to the Kangaroo pumps has gone through my head.. Dododo..dodo...hahaha..I need a vacation:)
  9. Bellingham washington l.p.n. question

    Its definitely mostly long term care, and MD offices...St. Joes does hire a few LPNs..in Mother baby,2nd surgical and ER...but it can be very difficult to get in as many LPN's have worked as CNA's in the hospital while they got there LPN's... Since t...
  10. Any positive thoughts about nursing school?

    I made it through LPN, then prerequisites, then RN, now I am in a BS/MS program AND I am still married, still spend time with my children(3 of em), and work! Granted some sections/tests were harder than others...Some weeks I would barely have to stud...
  11. Any Stonybrook University MSN students?

    Thank you so much for all the information! I really appreciate it, I am not sure I could handle finishing it all in 2 years anyway! Good luck in your studies, hope all is going well
  12. Any Stonybrook University MSN students?

    I hope you don't mind, but I do have another question. Do you know if the 2 year full time program is available online? One of the directors there emailed me and said 95% of people choose the 3 year part time program, but no other specifics(and I hat...
  13. Any Stonybrook University MSN students?

    I have a question for you, please..I have just been accepted into the RN to BSN online program at SB and am planning on applying to the FNP program there also when the time comes(they let you apply half way through your bsn completion). My question i...
  14. St Joseph Hospital in Bellingham

    St. Joes no longer pays for schooling! They recently stopped in the last couple years...Which is quite unfortunate since I am in school currently..with the buy out on Madrona-It is DEFINITELY a monopoly...Not only that but a lot of nurses are stuck t...
  15. St Joseph Hospital in Bellingham

    I work at St Joseph hospital, and we NEVER take 8 patients, EVER! The ratio is actually 5:1 for days & evenings, and 7:1 for night shift-that is every floor...Except of course specialty areas like ICU,CVU etc where you take even less...Salaries a...
