    Simmons University School of Nursing FNP online program

    supposed to be a good program I applied twice but was not accepted, but I did graduate from somewhere else two years ago and have been working as an np since March 2018. Good luck!

    How long should one grieve after losing job?

    I was in your place once but I didn't have the option to go back to being a nursing assistant in my facility. I was an aide first on the unit for a few years then I finished nursing school and got licensed. I was a child in a candy store finally getting to learn all the skills to be a decent nurse. However , it ended up being too fast paced and short staffed for me as a new nurse they trained me on 2 different shifts and floors. Both units were medsurg/telemetry. I was so depressed. But you know what kept me going was that it wasn't the only place and way I could be a nurse. I applied to numerous positions for 2 weeks and before those weeks were over I landed a job in LTC. Did I love it enough to stay? No I didn't, lasted five months but I learned so much more because the pace wasn't as hectic. I worked at two other subacute facilities over the next few years. I even tried teaching lpn school for a semester, was I really great at it? No I wasn't. But I decided I will gain more experience and go back and teach again someday. In December 2014, after three years of trying to get back in the hospital setting, I got a phone call offering me a position on a telemetry/ medsurg unit. I took it up. I decided why not see if I can do this? So bottom line refine your skills and keep trying. One day you will find your niche. Maybe you can do wound care nursing after you get some experience.

    Why I am not Surprised by Joy Behar's Ignorant Comments

    I had a patient at the nursing home that had a change in the mental status however when paramedics got there she refused and had been perked up again. I apologized to them because I truly have respect for their time

    May they rip, sad that someone who just wanted to support nursing and quality of care for patients was taken away by an act of violence. Prayers to the family

    Homecare jobs are plentiful in my area but hospitals aren't hiring really right now. Even with my rn I have had a difficult time. I currently work in nursing/ rehab facility per diem

    I dropped down to per diem and working 2-3 shifts a week, when I have papers or exams I will cut down to 1-2
