The term nurse manager is usually a misnomer. The fact is that most nurse managers do not have any management training. This is why a good many nursing units run inefficiently and have high turn over.
A BSN does not a manager make. If I had a hospital I would tend to be looking for RN MBA's to run things eh? Or at lease a BS in MANAGEMENT? Duh?
New Hospital based DC Planning CM here. They gave me some computer based training on interqual but it was quite worthless.....reading a few power point presentations....
Anyone know of some killer interqual practice apps or any other interqual training available that has some substance to it?
Replies like this highlight the ops point....mean spirited and nasty....and reading on through many nasty posts continue....why even bother to reply with a snarky negative post....wait I know.....you are nurses....attempting to make yourselves look like you are all that while trying to minimize the credibility of the OP....Unreal
I just yeah yeah yeah and nod my head to these fools. Then I go back to doing things my way, which is very very successful. I have told many a boss that when they get tired of the way I do things......they can fire me. I have not been fired yet because my survey scores are through the roof.........I sure have quit a lot of jobs though.....I refuse to work for kool aid drinking fools.
not all jobs have such heavy loads, rehab jobs and ltach jobs for CNAs are hard. Grt a job at a hospital on a med surge floor, you will get total care patients but you will also get walkie talkies to balance it all out........you just have the wrong job........
All the BSN programs I have seen have little to do with science. They focus, on legal, public health, cultural aspects, research, etc.......much more important than being proficient in chemistry is being proficient in APA and creative writing

BS = Bull Sh......
MS = More Sh....
Phd = Piled higher and deeper
These BSN programs are full of useless classes that have no bearing whatsoever on a nurses practice. They are laden with busy work and are generally designed to separate a nurse from their hard earned money.
Where I work you get a 50 cents an hour raise for a BSN.....pfffffffffft
In my 2.5 years in the acute hospital setting the NPs think like doctors. The NP schools are teaching the medical model. NPs do not care one lick about the "art of nursing"....they care about making sure the right tests are ordered and that the right MEDICAL diagnosis is made and treated..
Maybe not always true, but, certainly my experience. I would guess that an NP practicing as a primary care provider may have a different outlook....
Every last on I spoke with had at least a DNP and at least 25 years experience combined as a practicing RN and mid-level provider. disagree with the sentiment that is your choice, however in the academic world this is the thinking. Columbia is considered by many to be a very prestigious school and I cannot imagine them taking this position and subsequently offering this program if they thought Columbia NPs would be out there tarnishing the schools reputation.....
