  1. NANDA history

    I'm having difficulty with students struggling to find the exact NANDA dx for their patient's problems. Rather than reason through their assessment data and synthesize in their own minds their patient's problems, I see them thumbing through NANDA to ...
  2. NANDA history

    [TABLE=width: 100%] [TR] [TD=bgcolor: #f3f1f0, colspan: 2]1973: Kristine Gebbie and Mary Ann Lavin call the First Task Force to Name and Classify Nursing Diagnoses. Members plan to meet biannually in St. Louis, MO.[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [/TR] [/TABLE] My ...
  3. I teach at a proprietary school and there is a genuine equality in the sense that faculty in general ed are paid comparably to nursing faculty. It has to do with how many "face hours" you have, plus a factor for committee work, lecture prep and pape...
  4. Hmmmm... interesting conversation. There hasn't been any "Xtian" input yet so, since I qualify, I'll put in my 2 cents worth. I think what some of you have experienced is "being witnessed to." If you view it from the stand point of the witness' b...
  5. Rookie of the Year!!!!

    One of our graduates from our 2nd cohort was just named ROTY. Candidates from all over the northern part of the state were nominated. We are so proud. She really is an outstanding nurse. A great accomplishment for her, and for the little school ...
  6. Cheating ADN STUDENTS in lecture

    Testing policy is in the student handbook and specifies much of what was stated above. All of our tests are on our website so it's done on line. We scramble the questions and the distractors. Same deal with water bottles, pens, scratch paper, calc...
  7. Instructor prep time

    I'm full time and 3 hours prep for 1 hour lecture is maybe close to fair. I'm OCD about this and may take longer. Takes longer especially if you're starting from scratch on a new topic. Gotta question if your employer is using part-time people appr...
  8. "Caring behaviors"

    Thanks much... I'll talk to our librarian tomorrow! J
  9. "Caring behaviors"

    Excellent. I think we should make our CET more expansive in regards to all the people in the patient care environment, including other care-givers, significant others, family members and so forth. But, what sorts of verbs do you use to describe the...
  10. Working for the Rich Population?

    Your question seems odd to me. What do you mean? In a hospital, a spa, cruise-ship??? The days of the boutique general hospitals as I remember them, is pretty much over.
  11. "Caring behaviors"

    Our Clinical Evaluation Tool has an item that requires a rating on Caring behaviors. There's no definition of the term, not in the tool itself, or any syllabus, handbook or catalogue. Consequently, I don't think it's legitimate to rate the student ...
  12. Not sure what you mean by nationally accredited. AACN is the agency that accredits schools awarding the BSN (like yours). NLNAC accredits ADN programs around the country. There are no other credentials that we can get. We've gotten them all.
  13. Our retention rate is very high. the vast majority that get into the clinical semesters will graduate... though sometimes they may need to repeat a course. We're even seeing that go down as a % because we're doing early and vigorous intervention. ...
  14. We are a proprietary nursing school that is doing a bang up job producing well respected graduates. Our first time pass rate is 91.4%. Our placement rates are excellent. Our students are in high demand and doing well. 4 of our best decided to ear...
  15. The False Advertising of For-Profit Institutions

    There was a post from a former HR person who said any resume that mentions U of Phoenix or other proprietary school is dumped no matter what else the applicant has to offer. And speaking of which... I work alongside a bunch of faculty members that g...
