    skills tests need video monitoring

    Is it just me or does anyone else think video monitoring should be allowed or an option when taking the skills portion. One observer was looking at her phone seated when I did hand washing. Another sat the whole time I did perineal care. Then failed me because I didn't wipe with a clean portion of cloth each time WHEN I DID BUT SHE WAS SEATED AND NOT UP CLOSE WATCHING ME. I am getting very frustrated because tomorrow will the 3rd time I am taking this skills portion. I am thinking about just taking the course over at a red cross facility.

    Vanderbilt Nurse Residency 2014

    I have a question for you: I am currently a Vanderbilt employee myself, but I work on the academic side. Why is it so hard for the ones who already work for the system to get an interview from the medical side? I have been applying for care partner postions with no response. I thought vandy hires internally first?

    Obamacare and hospitals

    Its not homework. I currently work at a non- profit hospital and wondering what the CNA hiring will be more at non-profits or for profits. I know a hospitals budget plays a big part in hiring and reinbursements affect budget a lot.
