  1. Need a nurse to interview

    Hi, I am a DNP student and I need to interview (well ask 6 questions to) any nurse who is involved in nursing influence in regulation of nursing practice and/or legislation. If you can answer 6 questions and wouldn't mind helping me get this paper do...
  2. Thank you for your review on Purdue FNP certificate program. I am currently researching programs and there isn’t much on the certificate program. I also have seen lots of bad reviews from the Kaplan side. Thanks for sharing your experience. Did you feel you were well prepared for boards?

      Yes. The program does prepare you for the boards in two ways. 1st, your hours in clinical and the data you must upload regarding your patient encounters will increase you clinical competencies in the primary care environment. 2nd, you will have a commercial review course (we used Barkley but that may have changed). This review is like most commercial ones you could purchase on your own where there are 10-15 modules and a practice exam. Just FYI, their practice exam was difficult and worth a portion of your grade.  From my experience the program was well organized and the online platform was streamlined. I continued to their DNP online program which is also well structured. I hope this helps.

  10. Nursing students at health fairs.

    Our school gave us credit (clinical hrs) for doing health fairs. First year students were permitted to do BP checks, weight, height and Pulse rate. Second year students were allowed to do Acu-checks. Ask to see if you can get credit for your time. G...

  12. Go to which ever is closer to you. Gas is expected to rise to $100 a barrel by winter. Thats approx $3.75 (reg) a gallon. I know its crazy but If the CC is cheaper, and lets say...30 miles away, it may not be cheaper after all. Good luck.
  13. ERI testing

    Hi, we too have eri testing at our school, and I feel the same as most. The tests are not providing me with any knowledge that is in conjunction with our course content. At best, I have learned how to memorize answers. To some-what answer your quest...
