    Are O2 sats a vital sign?

    Can I ask a quick question of any inpatient nurses. Does your floor (I am mostly looking at med/surg and PCU/stepdown) consider O2 sats a vitals sign (completed on every patient with their HR and temp etc) or does it have to be ordered separately by the physician that the o2 sats are checked? If it does have to be ordered separately, are the nurses responsible for it or your respiratory therapists? I work for a large, top 10 hospital, and I find it so strange that their requirements are not the same I have experienced at other facilities.

    Austin Peay FNP Program- Fall 2013

    I was super excited at first- now I am just dreading it haha. Congrats on getting in! I am going part time and taking the summers off, so it is going to take forever. I am not sure I could go straight through though. How about you? I am not starting till fall so I am anxious to see how you like it!

    Is grad school really this hard to get into?

    I had a borderline GPA and applied to Frontier, Ball State, and Austin Peay (Regents). I have worked at Vanderbilt for 2 years on a surgical med/surg floor. I had a 3.0 in my ASN program and then I did an online (Ohio University) BSN program and had a 3.7. I was turned down by Frontier and Ball State but did get into the FNP program at Austin Peay. Now I just hope I can make it through the next 3 years! PS - I am from Cincinnati and went to UC for some of my undergrad. I also have a few friends doing their Adult NP there and they like it!

    Vanderbilt Nurse Residency Program Summer 2013

    In case you guys need help with your apt search these are some I know of, lived in, or looked at. ​Lenox Village Town Center Grand View Apartments The Lexington Avondale at Kennesaw Farms - Great apts and very affordable but not really near much The Landings of Brentwood- where I currently live- great apts about 30 min from work and in the middle of all sorts or food and shopping and celebrity homes. Please mention my name if you come here! Polo Park - I used to live there and it's decent. I am not sure if it was just my building (I was back in the woods) but I had a bit of a bug problem. It is in a good spot though and about 20 min to work. Waterford Place - Decent and afordable I haven't seen these but they are affordable and in a safe area- Hampton Chase Apts The Hamptons at Woodland Point Mission Bellevue Ridge Blackstone, Fairmont and Lee apartments - Very close to vandy Westboro - I have heard good things and also very close to Vandy Park West at Hillwood - I have not seen these but one of our residents lives here and she really likes it. Hope this helps narrow down some options!

    Austin Peay FNP Program- Fall 2013

    I got my official letter today! I am super excited/horrified! Good luck and keep me updated!

    Austin Peay FNP Program- Fall 2013

    Yeah it says Admit per Nursing Dept and Regular admission on my application status but I am so paranoid I keep thinking there is another step or something. I will probably call them tomorrow. I am doing the FNP with the straight through the summer part time option and doing 2 classes at a time.

    Austin Peay FNP Program- Fall 2013

    I dont know anyone who graduated from regents. I am still super excited though. When did you get all your info in?

    Austin Peay FNP Program- Fall 2013

    Yeah mine changed on the 5th of this month and mine was about a 3.0 exactly as well- although my last years when I finished my BSN my GPA was a 3.6. I didn't put in a request but I MTSU would have been my choice- but if I got in I don't care who does it lol. I turned in all the info around the 15th of January.

    Austin Peay FNP Program- Fall 2013

    Ah Good Luck! I am pretty sure I got in based on the application status online but I haven't gotten an official statement. It is making me super nervous. My GPA was questionable due to a rough time right out of high school and I wasn't sure I could get in anywhere. Do you live in Nashville? Are you doing the online?
  13. I applied to the online Regents program at Austin Peay and I was curious if anyone else was doing this. It looks like I might have gotten in based on their online application but I haven't gotten a final letter. I am super nervous. Anyone have any information?

    Relocating to Nashville...possibly?

    It is tough to find to find info on pay around here. A lot of it depends on your experience level. I believe the max out of my non icu floor is around 32.50 an hour base rate. I will say it is one of the best places to work and they pay similar to the other hospitals in the area. As far as places to live it depends if you are looking to rent or buy. I live in Cool Springs- between Brentwood and Franklin. It takes me about 30 minutes to get to work and it is a very safe area with great schools but its not cheap. My 2 bed/2 bath apt is 1000.00 a month. Most areas of Nashville are good just stay away from Antioch, South Nashville Neighborhood, and the East Nashville Neighborhood. The Donelson/Hermitage area is affordable but I am not sure about the schools. The Bellevue area is also nice but again I am not sure about the schools.

    Relocating to Nashville

    I am not sure if you have signed a lease yet. I havent heard much about Nashboro Village. I know a lot of the apt complexes around nashville if you need any help.
