    Any SNHU grads/students?

    Hello, ThatChickOmi! Why not wait a couple of months until you pass the NCLEX-RN before enrolling in an RN-BSN program? That way, you will have all options open to you. A few months will fly by. For what it is worth, I did the WGU RN-BSN and found it to be a very good program. I had a previous bachelor's and master's from other institutions. Also, for what it's worth, I would avoid Chamberlain and other for-profit institutions. They are generally overly pricey and many are not looked upon favorably by other institutions, should you decide to continue your education. Best wishes!
  2. Hello all! I'm approaching the end of an ADN program and hold a bachelor's degree in another field. I'm trying to decide between one of the numerous RN-BSN programs available or an RN-MSN program for those holding a non-nursing bachelor's. Would you please share knowledge of online RN-MSN programs? I'll start the list with the following: Chamberlain College of Nursing Drexel University Gonzaga University Loyola University Nebraska Methodist College University of Wyoming Western Governor's University Thanks in advance!

    AIMS is an acronym for Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale, a tool used to monitor for EPS, especially tardive dyskinesia. It is used with patients taking antipsychotic drugs. An example of one is located at this link.

    OCC - for Fall 2012 or Jan 2012 prospective students!

    Whosurdaddy, apart from numerous care plans, what sorts of documents are regularly required to be written for the nursing program? Are there many research reports? Just curious. TIA!

    Thanks for your replies! I imagine we'll receive a bill in the very near future.

    I received a packet of information from the nursing department today. However, it didn't contain a bill or confirmation of my pharmacology section (though I did receive it over the phone). Am I the only one who didn't receive a bill or section confirmation? Also, when I look online, I don't see my registration in the pharmacology class. Does anyone else see his/her registration? TIA!

    Has anyone received confirmation of his or her assigned pharmacology section? Also, are the syllabi ready in the bookstore?

    OCC Uniforms

    Sorry for so many questions, but I noticed that on page 24 of the OCC Nursing Handbook, it says that uniforms are NOT to be worn on campus. So, do we wear plain street clothes for on-campus labs? Thanks in advance!

    OCC Uniforms

    Thanks for the pic, jaaaey77! However, in another thread, someone said that the patches go on the left shoulder of the scrub top and lab jacket. I noticed your patch was on the right. Could you please clarify as to where the patches go? Thanks in advance!

    OCC Uniforms

    Hello again! I stopped by the OCC Southfield bookstore the other day and believe I saw that there were white and olive green lab jackets. So, could someone please verify exactly what the nursing student uniform is? Is it white scrub top, olive green lab jacket, and olive green pants? Thanks!

    OCC Uniforms

    Thanks for the info, jaaaey77! I'll have to take a look at the uniforms in the bookstore to match the color. Also, are the uniforms/badges the same for both the Southfield and Highland Lakes campuses? Thanks again!

    Just after I hit reply, I noticed that the Ohio school is closing its doors as of May 2011. Sorry!
