    Initial CRNP License in Pennsylvania

    Check with the board to see what they require. Some require the final transcript to apply and other just won't release scores until you send the final transcript. It truly does take them about 6 weeks or so to issue the final transcript at Pitt. T...

    someone put soap in my drink!!

    People who do those types of things need mental help! That is not just spiteful, it is dangerous. Thankfully it was just soap.

    Was asked if I was bisexual?!?!?

    I doubt that the question was asked with malicious intent. However, it could have been asked much differently. A more appropriate question would have been "Do you have sex with men, women, or both?". Unfortunately, some providers have a difficult t...

    Passed AANP!

    I don't think you can go wrong with either specialty. If I were ever to go back for another specialty it would be psych/mental health. I think my program prepared me well for the exam, but I think studying different review books is also very helpfu...

    Passed AANP!

    Thanks! I agree that I didn't feel that it really tested my knowledge, except for a few questions. I got my score report today and I got 722 out of 800 points. I was happy about that.

    Passed AANP!

    I passed the AANP FNP test on Halloween! That test was hard. I felt like I studied and reviewed a lot of material. I didn't feel like a lot of what I studied was on the test. I'm just happy that I passed. Now the waiting game to get my license f...

    how long do u get for lunch?

    Well, they take 30 minutes out of every day that I work for this thing called "lunch". However, I don't get to take that 30 minute lunch. Sure I might get to eat, but it's at the desk and it's never uninterrupted. In my current job and the two before...

    Anyone have a nursing supervisor require you to work while sick?

    I think hospitals need to be held accountable by a higher authority for creating a threatening environment in which nurses who are ill or injured feel they have no choice but to come to work. I lost my position because I called off work even thou...

    Susan, You have many options for hospitals in that area. Look at the following: St. Luke's Promedica system which includes Bay Park Community Hospital and Toledo Hospital Mercy system which includes St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, St. Char...
  14. I worked in a hospital that required multiple swabs to screen for infectious disease. We did nasal and rectal swabs, but also swabbed all wounds, trachs, sputum, urine, peg tubes. And yes, we did this for every patient.

    Pocket PC, Palm, Blackberry, (which to purchase?)

    I have an HP ipaq which is a stand alone PDA and a Samsung Omnia which is a pda phone. I like them both. I prefer the ipaq for reference use, because the screen is bigger and I can write/type things on it easier. However, I usually carry the omnia...
