rn.d86's Latest Activity

  1. Wanting to hear peoples experience with the program, and if they would recommend it. I live in California, and would be doing the online program. It appears they have on campus skill intensives which I like the idea of. Waiting for the recruiter to contact me to answer some of my questions.

    UC Denver NP program

    Hi, tried searching and could not find any reviews of UC Denver np program. Considering acute care program. I like that it's mostly online with campus intesives and that it's from an established, respectable school. Would love to hear from people who have obtained a NP degree from this school and how it operates and the quality of it.

    Radiation Exposure

    Hello, I have been a RN for several years, and have always thought of going the CRNA direction. I was wondering what the radiation exposure is for CRNA's, and if there are areas or specialties that have lower levels of radiation exposure?

    Happy Holidays to Sutter Hospital

    I think people should refrain from discussing how cheaply new grads are willing to work. I'm afraid it will further lower the wages among all RN's.

    How is the program so far? I have been thinking of attending.

    California SB 1524

    Juan, thanks for the insightful information. I'm a floor nurse who is thinking about starting NP school, and the issue of obtaining a furnishing license always seemed a bit odd to me. Do you mind if I ask what part of CA you work in, as well as what specialty you're in?

    California SB 1524

    It appears that California SB 1524 has passed. This law should do away with the current law requiring 6 months of supervision before a NP can apply for a furnishing license. Do you know if NP's will be able to obtain a furnishing license if they're an unemployed newly graduated NP. It seems like already having a furnishing license would stream line the process of looking for a job, and make NP's more attractable to possible employers. What does everyone think?

    Which FNP programs are the shortest?

    The OP mentions Georgetown, which is known for having a very good FNP program. I think it is possible to have accelerated programs that offer a good education. I know that I went to an accelerated BSN program where I learned, and actually did skills that many posters here did not do in their RN programs. Edited because I mentioned the wrong University

    Holy Names University in Oakland

    BCaliRN, did you graduate from Holy Names, or are you going to a different NP program now? I'm trying to decide where I should apply.

    Holy Names University in Oakland

    Thanks for the update MBA2RN. Do you plan on attending a different FNP program in the area? What's next for you?
  11. The only information you need to know is how much you are looking to give (50mg) and what you have (125mg/1ml). I was taught to use the formula desire/have x supply. I'll let you figure out how to set it up and see if you can get the correct answer. My advice is that you should not get too concerned with the information that you do not need to know.

    ANCC to retire most popular, and eventually all, NP roles.

    This topic has really caught my attention. I am unable to understand why the powers that be are not offering a mechanism to convert an old credential to a newer one. This seems like a way of dividing the profession. I see that the FNP credential will be up for review in the next several years. Many nurses will be starting FNP programs in 2012. Based on the information we now know, do you think there is any reason to hold off on attending a FNP program until we see what changes are made?
  13. I posted to the wrong thread. Message deleted. Sorry.

    Was asked if I was bisexual?!?!?

    A physician once told me that he asks his patients, "do you have sex with boys, girls, or both?" He said that for younger clients it is vital information so that he can help assess for risk factors and provide education on safe sex practices.
