Youth is wasted on the young. How true. Attended CSI in the 1980's while very young and quite silly. Changed majors now considering returning to nursing school armed with the wisdom that comes with age.

  1. This is an update of sorts to a story from six years ago. Evelyn Lynch, R.N. a nurse at Brookdale Hospital in Brooklyn, NY was attacked and brutally beaten by a male patient. She never regained consciousness, and died while still in coma on 11 Novemb...
  2. Oh I don't know... From above linked article: "Security camera footage showed that the patient had his oxygen discontinued when he were transferred from the ambulance stretcher to the wheelchair. And while the patient's vital signs were taken by a nu...
  3. YORK, Pa. - Officials have confirmed the death of an ER patient at WellSpan York Hospital in August after the person was left unattended in the waiting room for more than an hour. https://www.ydr.com/story/news/2019/10/13/patient-dies-er-wellspan-yor...
  4. BMCC 2020

    Since you'll already have a four year degree, it serves no purpose getting an ADN now that NYS has passed the "BSN in Ten" requirement. You are far better off just going for a second degree/accelerated RN program and be done with things. On average ...
  5. NYP Weil-Cornell non union

    Cannot give specific answers to your queries, but can answer at least one general. When Columbia Presbyterian and New York Hospital/Cornell merged the places that were union remained, and those that weren't largely did not. IIRC New York Hospital wa...
  6. why is an RN considered as an expense instead of an asset?

    For any business, company or whatever, those who hire employees universally view them as an "expense". That is how accounting, tax laws and other things treat those hired by someone who have an associated cost, but do not usually per se generate reve...
  7. Trump's 'religious conscience'

    Hello All! Just wading in here without having read entire several pages of postings. First and foremost was born, raised and still live in NYC, and have never known nor heard of DT being particularly religious. The man is serial philander with very l...
  8. Failed Fundamentals at BMCC, now what?

    Just to be fair, CUNY nursing programs do have a method behind their madness. You can go online to the NYS website and look at historical board passing rates for various programs. Over the years many CUNY schools (especially the ADN programs) had ab...
  9. Failed Fundamentals at BMCC, now what?

    Sometimes the best defense is a good offense. Stuff happens. Life happens. But it is important to realize when it might be best to step back rather than soldiering on. This advice is often best headed when high stakes are on table, such as nursing or...
  10. Does the BSN in 10 apply to all nurses or just RN's and why?

    This is probably one of the better articles on how things reached this stage: http://home.nwciowa.edu/publicdownload/Nursing%20Department%5CNUR310%5CBSN%20Required.pdf Also the famous (or infamous) white "position" paper published in 1964 making the ...
  11. Does the BSN in 10 apply to all nurses or just RN's and why?

    It is a long and complicated/drawn out story, and don't have time right now to sit you down so here are the basics. LPNs in NYS aren't professional nurses (RNs) so obviously the statue does not apply. Practical nurses have their own educational and l...
  12. Does the BSN in 10 apply to all nurses or just RN's and why?

    Far as NYS is concerned diploma nursing schools long ceased to exist. IIRC there is only one such program left somewhere upstate. Basically the profession and more to the point employers (hospitals) made that call. The latter no longer would hire dip...
  13. Nursing Uniforms: From Skirts to Scrubs and Beyond

    Well that's what things all come down to today isn't it? You'd have all sorts of heck breaking loose if any facility even remotely tried today to get even a largely female nursing staff back into starched whites and certainly caps. Happily for the Mi...
  14. Nurse accused of impregnating women in vegetative state

    Nathan Sutherland is no longer a LPN far as the state of Arizona is concerned. So there is some justice in the world. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6634093/Nurse-arrested-comatose-birth-voluntarily-gives-nursing-license.html
  15. Nurse accused of impregnating women in vegetative state

    Former caregiver of the young patient in question gave a media interview in which she stated the woman's large and extended family visited often. They are American Indian from a local tribe and (former) caretaker stated often large groups of fifteen ...
