  2. Platt college?

    I would have to disagree with you. Platt College is accredited by the American Association of Technical Schools. The nursing school is also fully approved by the state board of nursing. Take a look at the school website and look at their information

  4. Hesi Exit Test

    the school that I am faculty at uses the HESI as a means to gauge how the students are doing, and a tool to evaluate curriculum. We do not use as a requirement to move on to the next level or to graduate. We do not use it as a grade either. I do know...
  5. Would Love to Hear Worst Student Nurse Fumbles

    giving my first shot as a student nurse, my instructor insisted that I use the 1 1/2 inch needle on a very thin man. So, scared to death, I go in, have the man turn over so I can give in his glut. okay, here we go...put the needle in and hit...bone! ...

  7. MD likes to make you feel stupid

    Stand up to that doc! Take a deep breath, look him in the eye and tell him that you don't like the way he's talking to you. He probably doesn't even realize how he's speaking to you. If you don't stand up for yourself no one will and doctors will con...
  8. CNA to NURSE on same job, Job will not change my status

    If you like your job and where you work, stick it out until there is an opening for an LVN. If you don't like your job start applying for another employer. Just be very careful that you are not practicing outside of the scope for a CNA. If you are em...

  11. I got my coworker fired

    I emailed one of my team leaders about a coworker who was talking in patient care areas about very sexually explicit topics. It made me uncomfortable but I was mainly concerned about the patients (pedi) and their parents. All I asked was that she tal...
  12. New ER Nurse

    ask lots and lots of questions. don't ever be afraid to ask for help. nurses in the ER work together as a team. that's often the only way to manage a critically ill patient. take advantage of being "new" and volunteer to any and every procedure that ...
  13. Help..fellow RN breaking into co-workers E mail

    since you are union, I would suggest calling your union rep. Anyone violating your email and impersonating you is breaking the law. In fact, it might be considered harassment. If your union is worried about conflict of interest ie.. representing two ...
  14. Question about classroom teaching

    I, too, am new to teaching in a PN program. My previous director discouraged the use of ppt. She said we were to only read the lecture material to the class and that was good enough. Personally, I found it incredibly boring, even for me! I do use ppt...
