  1. Any easy RN-BSN online program in the U.S.?

    Easy like flat out give you a good grade? For real? Any accredited college should make you EARN your good grades. If you find making good grades is easy, then thats great for you. But when you said just give it to you, I hope I was misinterpreting. G...
  2. Pros/Cons of ONLINE NP program!?!?!

    PrettyWings, I don't know because I am still in school. I can say though, the work is HARD and isn't any easier than an in person class, like those I took for my RN classes. If the school is accredited, had a good reputation, and you pass the board e...
  3. Pros/Cons of ONLINE NP program!?!?!

    I am currently a student in a distance education (aka "online" but I don't like that terminology ) . I am attending Frontier, for their CNM program, but they also have a FNP program as well. As opposed to Moogie, I feel very connected to my class ma...
  4. Experience needed before beginning midwifery program - timing issues!

    Frontier does require one year of nursing experience, though not necessarily L&D experience. They will consider other relevant health care experience in lieu of the one year requirement. Keep looking for jobs-anywhere! LTC, offices, etc. Work as ...
  5. Frontier in 2012

    I am in the same class at Frontier as the earlier poster, klone. I applied in Feb 2010 for the August 2010 Frontier Bound. Although you are finding out your acceptance 6-8 weeks before Frontier Bound (required on campus orientation), the classes don'...
  6. Job interview while pregnant

    6 years ago, soon before my graduation, I was applying for jobs while also pregnant. I went to one interview while 8 months pregnant. Didn't get offered the job, even though I brought up in the interview my solid child care arrangements--my husband. ...
  7. Should I tell my NM or not???

    I think a young healthy patient with a 30pt drop in systolic BP warrants further investigation, more frequent VS, MD eval, etc. Of course she was feeling better--she had narcs! I think you are in the wrong just as much as she is. But, she didn't actu...
  8. do employers care if you are on xanax?

    Well, you're gonna have to disclose the Xanax on the pre employment drug screen.
  9. SUNY Downstate-Midwifery: Anti-Nursing?

    At Frontier, you must be a nurse to apply , with at least one year experience, but other significant healthcare experience will be considered in lieu of the one year requirement. But-- you still have to be a RN. Frontier has no program for non-nurses...
  10. "They give the meds, we do the care"

    Watching "Undercover Boss" and its the CEO of Brightstar, which i've never heard of. So, apparently one of the jobs of the company is providing agency staff to nursing homes, etc. The CEO asked a CNA what the difference between a CNA and the RN is. "...
  11. Did any of you NOT take a NCLEX prep course??

    My first job required the Kaplan 4 day course. I didn't mind. the hospital paid for the course, and paid me my hourly salary to be there. I actually liked it though. I thought the Kaplan course questions were most like the actual NCLEX questions (thi...
  12. Is EPIC coming to your facility??....

    My previous job used EPIC, and I was working there when they transitioned to EPIC. It was fine. It did make the doctors enter all orders into the computer, and it also strongly discouraged any nurse/secretary from entering verbal orders, except in sp...
  13. Does anyone enjoy being a nurse???

    i love being a nurse. i love my job, and i've had jobs that i really didn't love as a nurse, too. i don't regret becoming a nurse at all, and never have (i've been a nurse almost 6 years). I'm so glad I did it. I love it so much, that I'm in graduat...
  14. Frontier ADN to MSN Bridge students/former students

    Ladies, you won't hear anything likely until June. I applied last February for the August bridge class last summer, just like you are now. Our class didn't hear anything until the end of June. When they say you don't hear until 6-8 weeks before going...
  15. ADN Students Whom Already Hold a Bachelors in Another Field

    It's not 10 days at a time. If you do the ADN -MSN program, it is 4 days before you start (Monday afternoon-Thursday morning) then, after the first year there, you do the same four day visit, then, before you start your clinicals, you go for 8 days. ...
