I would find me a new job in a more urban area personally! I don't have time for people's ignorance and also for it to be tolerated by management...nope I would not feel comfortable at all working there!

I say go for the ICU job...its in a place and around people where you are already making the comfortable so why not! Plus you probably know most of the daily routines and kinds of patients the unit takes and since they know you I would think they would be more likely to help you when needed. Plus it's an awesome opportunity that you will learn invaluable knowledge.

in the ICU in which I work we can push prop, succs, and etomidate only in the presence of the MD performing intubation. Only MD's perform intubations at my facility. But we can bolus prop off the iv pump if they have a drip running.
a new one that just started like a month or so ago is " Motivation for WGU nursing program student" and a very active one is "WGU RN to BSN discussion group" they require your email address to join that one but it is vey helpful!
I think the issue is that most state grant programs go to institutions with in the state. I'm pretty sure if WGU was in PA they would recognize it but since it is based out of Utah you are probably out of luck. :-)

The hospital I work at doesn't hire CNA's. ON the floors we are podded together with LPN's as a care team. so the RN does charge and lpn does care and passes meds to the patients in their pod. Its a pretty sweet set up. especially if you get teamed up with someone who is a good worker. You can get a lot accomplished together for your patients.
So I made the decision to go with WGU for my BSN and everything is all set to start on February 1st. Just wondering who else is starting in February? Or anyone the started in the recent months let me know how its going. :-) I have a nervous/excited energy about starting. Im hoping to be done by the end of 2014 and have 33CU's to go.
