    Are shy and quiet people not allowed to be nurses?

    Quiet and shy can be interpreted various ways. You can still be that as long as you are safe/competent and complete the tasks and goals and be able to function as a nurse and its duties and caring for the patient and knowing about your patient. I am a instructor and have had students with this personality in which some did fine and succedded while some struggled and were unsafe or unsatisfactory in the clinical setting. Again there are many aspects of nursing and expectations through the various levels of nursing school. Will and passion and hard work make up for any weaker traits

    Seeking a preceptor for women's rotations NP

    The program does not help or assign sites or possible instructors. Once we locate a possible preceptor we have to get our instructors approval...other than that we are on our own to locate preceptors. The worst part of the graduate NP programs...

    Looking for NP in Womens Services for Rotations

    twu does not arrange any clinical rotations for at least the fnp, acnp, and other np pathways. i know ut and tt are the same thing due to current colleagues that are in their program. its very different than the undergraduate programs =\

    Seeking FNP Preceptors

    Hi All nurses Board, I was looking to start working on getting potential preceptors, information, network etc for my time in the FNP program for the next 6 courses. I am looking to find a NP, PA, MD that wouldn't mind having a FNP student with them during a semester (hrs vary on the course at the time : 20-135 hrs) for clinical and learning etc. I know preceptor finding is the worse and hardest for the programs, so I wanted to start early to hopefully book and network some. I am located in Houston, but can travel around Houston to Katy, Surgerland, Woodland, Humble, Clear lake etc etc, anything around the Houston area in General. Outpatient, Fast Track ED, clinics appears to be what is preferred by the program so far. If anyone can help or assist. That would be great. Thanks! Mike

    Information about FNP @ UTMB

    Hello All, Has anyone have any info or experience with the UTMB FNP program mainly with how their rotations, and classes work? I was looking at getting my post masters and all I have left is advanced assessment and the clinical rotations part. Were clinical all up to the student to find locate and set up or did the University have contacts list and locations for information etc. Were all materials online, such as ppt, pod cast, videos. I have heard the school program is designed to be a good fit for the working nurse and flexible. Any input would be great. Thanks

    An RN who has a BS vs a BSN does it really matter?

    Depends on the educational facility. Some schools graduate you with a Bachelor of Science in Nurseing (BSN), or Bachelor of Science, with a Major in Nursing (BS). My school TWU does the BS route. Its just the name. The school went with this thinking having a BS appears more diverse look then BSN which is nursing strictly...although the programs are very alike etc..Just silly stuff. I think nation wide people jsut call it a BSN. Even when I say BS, Nursing, people still call it BSN etc etc.. dont really matter. There is just mainly 3 levels of nursing of this time period, the ADN route(Community college 2 year degree), Bachelors (BSN, or BS .... 4 years) and then the LVN and the diploma nursing etc. Check with hospitals, but major big centers may want bachelors to get their magnet and other recognition etc.

    MSN in Education vs. NP - any advice?

    I feel the same way! I have a BS, and in Texas we can only teach LVNs, need a master to teach BS/BSN students. I am currently in grad school, and need to make a decisions with pathway by August(since clinical for NP stuff starts Jan). I applied to a part time...x1 a week clinical instructor for LVNs at the local community college. This will give me some experence to see if I would rather get the education tract or get the NP tract (which i would use for teaching as well..although a little longer)

    Has anyone done the Post masters NP tract?

    I was interested in doing my MS - nursing education 1st then doing a post master cert in NP. Just wondering if any of the NP had done a similar tract or done just the NP tract straight. I wanted to get the teaching masters 1st before I see if I want to do advanced practice nursing. etc

    Graduate School - B grades - allways required?

    yeah, i noticed the same thing, avgs are usually below the requirements.. ours is 80% at least, some classes let you include the papers, other grades to get the 80+ but some classes require 80% average on the exams before they even include the other grades..if any..if not 80% on exams then poof... gone from program
  15. Was just thinking the other day, when did all nursing grad programs becomes a B to stay in the program... was it like this back in the days? Funny how med school requires i think just C's? and Nurse graduate school require B averages or you are out of the program. Is this for everyone one's program? I am from Texas..just curious
  16. Has anyone taken course work through a university or a online campus? I was going to swich my pathway to education and the university I am in, offers it all online.. Has anyone taken a full time 12 hour school load ? I do it for 3 semesters I would be done. Just wanted anyone input either online university or on campus. Hows the semester class load, if ya'll took 3,6,9 or even 12 hrs class load. Thanks!
