  1. VA San Diego

    I would be upfront and honest about it. Depending on circumstances it may or may not be a factor. Better to be upfront about it and chance it, than to go through the process (which can be very long) only to find out they deny you for not disclosing...
  2. Loan Forgiveness for NPs

    I work for the VA in a county with an Mental Health Catchment area score of 18, any chance I would qualify for any kind of reward?
  3. Nurse Charged With Homicide

    Negligent yes as are others involved but criminal No
  4. Contract Penalty fee $30,000

    I have seen this before on other contracts. In my experience 90 days notice seems to be the new normal on most NP contracts. I would insist that they remove the clause and if not then look somewhere else. If you feel this is your dream job and wan...
  5. Question About Working For The VA

    I am an NP for the Dept. of VA. As long as you have a valid NP license in any state, you are good to go. I do caution you however to obtain licensure in whatever state you go to work in as you will have to follow your state practice as well as fede...
  6. First med error/mistakes

    You will look back on this one day and realize that days like this happen to everyone. One bit of advice I might offer from my time as a new nurse... set your fluids to less than what will be infused so that they alarm as "complete" despite having 1...

  9. SOMC RN pay?

    SOMC does not have a weekender type of program. The starting pay is right around 21 per hour. It is a wonderful place to work and they offer several perks such as annual wellness bonuses, shift differential, and certification stipend.
  10. FNP at Ohio U.

    Currently in the second semester. Its not the easiest program I have been in but it is definitely acheivable.
  11. comparing apples to oranges

    I have quite a bit of autonomy where I am now so I hope that will push through to my practice in the future. I am very quick to ask about things I am not sure about when presented with a new problem.
  12. comparing apples to oranges

    Thank you so much for the replies. This is exactly what I was hoping for when I posed the question. Thank you for sharing your real-life experiences with me. I am looking forward to starting the program and eventually finishing it as well.
  13. comparing apples to oranges

    I am wanting to get your input on the difference between undergrad nursing programs and Advance Practice Nursing programs. For those of you already in a program, what is the biggest difference that you have seen? What are clinicals like? Input wou...
  14. Out of curiosity, how many male RNs are former military veterans?

    I am an Army Veteran and an RN but I am one of the few in my workplace.
  15. Accepted!

    I found it to be relatively easy in regard to applying to Grad School. I did not have to take the GRE due to my GPA being above the 3.2 cutoff. If you have any specific questions I would be happy to answer them.
