    Is it reasonable for Nurses to be fired who "ran away" from work during the pandemic?

    I can understand why we might feel resentment, at first. This things has altered many of our life’s both at work and outside of work. If we practice emotional intelligence it helps us see that, while we are free to be mad at whoever, it doesn’t make ...

    Is it reasonable for Nurses to be fired who "ran away" from work during the pandemic?

    It seems like you are making a lot of assumptions and assuming to understand folks situations that may have informed their LOA. I notice you also use quotations when am saying called on “sick” and that leads me to believe you already make assumptions...

    PhD or DNP to become Faculty?

    Never heard of the DNE. But there are reforms to make more DNP programs with educators tracks, at least 3 such programs already exist, that I know of. 2 other programs offer subspecialties that cant be pursued at a track in Ireland, but offered as ...

    PhD or DNP to become Faculty?

    But that is changing, and as highlighted, having a PhD doesn’t mean you will have much formal education in how to be an educator. There are schools out there who offer a PhD in Nursing Education and not just nursing in general, but they are on the mi...

    PhD or DNP to become Faculty?

    I have the same question as I finish my MSN in nursing education. There is a desire to create more educator tracks for DNP programs. AACN and NLN have both mentioned that utilizing both PhD and DNP prepared faculty in the academic and clinical traini...

    What's the real deal with Travel Nursing?

    So many nurses have consider becoming a travel nurse but are afraid to take the step for various reasons. Below is an interview I did for my travel agencies blog! I threw in a couple more common questions and concerns I get as well. I have recently r...

    What's the real deal with Travel Nursing?

    True Ned. Phil's first "sentence" was probably meant to be a transitional or prepositional tool, yet he presented it as independent, though woefully incomplete, sentence. A very good example of how we are all imperfect and how we all see things diffe...

    What's the real deal with Travel Nursing?

    Phil, In future I will do this. I was dictating much of this when it was originally written, and honestly I didn't do an in depth analysis of my grammar and fluidity. Another reason it may have been difficult for you to read is because of the format...

    ADN or BSN: What's the Big Deal?

    Personally, I believe that Places of employment and organizations that refuse to hire ADN nurses should think about this. They are the ones supporting this "propaganda". In many areas of NC, ADN nurses can get acute care jobs like anyone else. Every ...

    ADN or BSN: What's the Big Deal?

    Preach! I am all for higher education, but that "study" has so many flaws that I saw upon critiquing the article for a program during my ADN program. Although I don't think the BSN is just about money, I do believe money is a factor. I think it is im...

    South University online NP?

    If I remember correctly, their NP program was only available on campus not too long ago. How long has the online NP been established? Has anyone here on allnurses.com attended and graduated from the online program? If so, how was your overall experie...

    CNL

    I'm doing some research on the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) role. I've read the White paper on the difference between the CNL and the CNS (although the difference still is very clear to me). I understand that CNL is NOT an APRN role and that CNS is. ...
  17. I am from a rural area and had 4 job offers 3 months before graduation. That's with a local BSN program cranking out 60-80 grads a year. Of course this may not be Ye case everywhere. Do research. It may be more difficult for you, but it may not be im...
  18. I am in a be in their's who got their BSN not too long after completing my initial licensure. I can honestly say that my RN to BSN program did not dramatically increase my clinical knowledge and competency. Do I feel the program was a waste? Not rea...

    CNL

    Yep. The National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists maintains a list of states that allow for CNS to practice independently and/ or prescribe. See the following: http://www.nacns.org/docs/toolkit/5-AuthorityTable.pdf I never knew CNS presc...

    CNL

    Actually, I found Out some states do offer prescriptive authority to CNS, one of the administrators here is a Peds and Adult CNS who works in Nephrology as a CNS. Username escapes me at this time. She always has sub informative posts. And I'm not sur...

    CNL

    Elkpark, that is very interesting assessment you have. It actually makes a lot of sense. Guess time will tell huh? Thanks for your insight!

    CNL

    You're right. I actually just completed the first semester of my MSN in education l, as I think I would like to teach in the future. Not sure if I'm ready to teach anyone yet, outside being a preceptor. I really like my staff nursing schedule, whi...

    Client vs Patient

    I personally had some issues with this as well. From what research I've done online, I found that the term client is now preferred because it implies that a patient is not simply coming to us to receive a service but it's also actively participating ...

    Day Shift vs. Night Shift

    I agree totally. With days. I like having one day off between 3 days, but with nights I like to hit those 3 in a row and be done. However those occasions where I have one day off during 3 nights has been a blessing at times. Especially if I had a ver...

    Day Shift vs. Night Shift

    I think that video summed it up pretty well. My first job in CVICU, which I still work Per Diem we were required to do both days and nights, but we got to work mostly one of the other bc it was self-scheduling and people had their preferences and it ...
