    finishing Rn to bsn:college algebra delaying graduation

    I agree with Sour Lemon..... In 1967 when I graduated HS... I had taken and passed algebra 1&2, Trig., & Gemometry.....passing with Cs, I believe since I knew math was not my strong suit, so the summer following HS graduation..... I was going to be a biology major, which at that time only required algebra and geometry I took each of those courses during the 2 summer sessions at my univ.......and I passed with my usual c grade..... Best wishes.......I wish at that time there was pre college algebra....

    Inclement weather conditions...mandatory to work?

    During Hurricane Rita (05), alll area hospitals did a massive evacuation of all patients, at that time I lived. Near the gulf coast in SE Texas.......my hospital ask for employees willing to ride out the storm to come in, could bring our family......it's a good thing some of us did.....as we were the only functioning ER within almost 100 miles....others flooded etc......it was miserable as AC was not on the generators......long hot shifts.........thank goodness when FEMA medical team came a couple days later, brought 18 wheeler size generator......and a team like a MASH unit, dozens of ambulance and Mets....it was a nightmare

    The blurred line, patients, social media, and safety

    I do not acknowledge a patient is or forme patient.... When I get to respond to said patient, I explain private medical knowledge and even acknowledging that she / he was a patient is against federally patient history, and explain I can not acknowledge they were even a patient, or give advice.... they must personally seek advive from facility....... I have seen too many health care employees ruined by social media responses
  15. Texas nurse here You are eligible if you practice within 5 years.....can your work be considered nursing research? I use Ceu.elite.... Texas does require an ethics ceu within each 3 renewal cycles...... Best wishes
