    Rn wages in utah

    Actually nurses in southern california make $50 an hour starting and the cost of living is not as bad as san fran. I am a cali native. :-) But traffic and the cost of gas is ridiculous.

    The importance of "staying fit"?!?

    Also be sure to do core exercises!!! You can't have. Strong back and weak core. You need a solid middle trunk! Lol

    New to Navy, ODS, Portsmouth-need any help?

    Hi I'm not sure if this was answered. But I was wondering about the physical portion of ODS. When you do your push ups is it on your knees or feet? Female just wondering for training purposes! Thanks!

    Should I quit my job for school?

    If I were you I would check on the job websites (indeed.com, career link.com, monster.com,etc.) and see if there are any posting for a respiratory therapist in your area. Also look at the websites for the local hospitals. Be sure to look at what they're asking for some want experience and it may be hard to get a job without. Also you can take it loans. I know ppl think they're the devil and they are but when your in a crunch with school they help and you can pay them back later.

    Are you working while going to nursing school?

    I know a lot of nursing students at my school work. Especially as CNAs. (it's required in my program) it will help you get used to working in a hospital and you can start on your experience for when you apply for jobs!

    Does hawaii transfer clinicals?

    You will need your BSN for the CRNA degree. You also need 2+ yrs working in ICU (adult preferred). You also need to take the GRE. You should focus on doing well in those things before trying to apply to CRNA school. The competition is fierce

    I have a Bachelors in History... I want to be a Nurse

    I'm sorry that is not true. You can go into an Entry Level MSN program. You will need to take all the science pre-reqs in order to apply for one of these programs and they are very competitive. It may be cheaper to go the route of an accelerated BSN or you can just go all the way and be done. I would suggest going into the Entry Level MSN program if you are absolutely sure you want to be a certain nurse (NP, Palliative care, etc). Look at the website I have posted which is from the accrediting board for nursing schools and you can see the schools with the programs. I'm not sure where you live but in California there is UCLA and Azusa Pacifica. In Tennessee there is Vanderbilt and Hawaii has University of Hawaii at Manoa. Those I can think of off the top of my head. Also in Colorado. link for all accredited programs- American Association of Colleges of Nursing | Nursing Education Programs Link for all Entry Level Masters programs- http://www.aacn.nche.edu/research-data/GENMAS.pdf Also remember that by 2015 there will be no Masters programs they are fazing out Doctorate programs. If you start your program before 2015 then you are grandfathered in. Really there is no big difference.

    Need advice Nurse or Doctor

    @ stephalump You make a great point. I am currently single and without kids. I would love to be able to have time with a family. I guess I never thought about the time commitment after I am done with school such as always having to be on call. I am definitely not in it for the money. I am passionate about both fields and can respect both. Thanks!
