  1. That I don't like being a nurse.
  2. There are other options, radiology, nuclear medicine, radiation, don't limit yourself to nursing. Because guess what? Everything you described as far as how you are treated will happen to you as a nurse too.

    I hate clinicals - Anyone else with me?

    Not to start anything but if you think clinical are bad wait until you become a nurse. I would love to be back in clinicals versus being on the floor.

    The worst job you had before becoming a Nurse?

    I was a waitress too but at a chain restaurant. It wasn't a bad job but yeah I agree with being nice to your nurse and your waiter.

    The worst job you had before becoming a Nurse?

    I was a telemarketer for 2 days. Never heard so much choice language in such a short amount of time. Oh and a hotel housekeeper. That lasted for 2 weeks. On the flip side I was hurt on the job and was placed in registration for a month. Best job ever. I only had to talk to people for a couple minutes on the phone and I was fast and efficient. I was also able to answer some medical questions the patients asked. I didn't mention I was a RN because then they really would have asked a ton of questions. Looked into working there part time while I'm in school but it would be a $35 an hour pay cut. Darn it!

    Would you report possible diversion?

    I know it sounds harsh but you have to cya in this situation. You did the right thing for yourself and him if he is diverting.

    I bought a cheap laptop to go through the program. I have a MacBook Air and I was having the same problem. I do remember seeing a thread on here about Mac users with WGU and it listed the programs they installed in order to use the Mac with the program. I should have subscribed to it darn it.

    Wgu bsn start date 11/1/15

    Not doing the BSN program but another program there and I start Nov 1st. Really excited because I took a break from school before and that break turned into what 2-3 years. No more breaks for me. I'm going to plow through and continue on with a masters degree. Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    WGU RN-BSN October 2015 start date

    I'm starting October 1st too but for a different program (IT). I wish I would have gone here for my BSN. But oh well such is life. I'm excited about starting again. Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    BSN, NP, PA, and MD

    You heard wrong. You have to meet the admission requirements for med school. It doesn't say you have to major in a particular subject. Look at the admission requirements for a med school you are interested in. You'll need to take those additional classes that are listed for admission. Trust me if my circumstances were different I would be attending med school with my BSN. I already took most of the pre-req classes that are required. Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    Not excited about nursing--feels like a bad joke

    Completely understand. I've been a nurse for 7 years almost 8 and I feel this way all the time. I'm getting another degree outside the medical field. Nursing isn't for everyone but I do have moments where I enjoy what I do. It took me getting off the floors to actually somewhat appreciate it. But I still don't like it enough to do this type of work until I retire in 26 years. Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    Nurses and their pens

    Lol I never ever put it down. It immediately goes back into my zipped pocket right after using. Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    Nurses and their pens

    I never put my pen down and I never ever let anyone borrow it. I lost only 1 favorite pen and I vowed to never lose another one afterwards. Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    What advice would you give your 19 year old self?

    No, not necessarily to stay single, pick the right person. The number 1 thing is to trust your instinct. If you feel something isn't right then it is almost 99% true. Don't make excuses for anyone. Sent from my iPhone using allnurses
