    Immunizations for uninsured

    26 is the age. Something is not right. Now, they could have some kind of company regulation that requires your mother to pay for dependent coverage at age 21. She needs to look into the company policy for you.

    Failing a nursing class

    It happens. I know someone who failed a nursing class, went on to graduate with associates, bachelors, worked for 2.5 years, applied to four NP schools, was accepted at 3 (Duquesne, Simmons, Drexel, was not accepted at Georgetown) and will start this fall. You will never know unless you try.
  3. I wonder if somewhere in the employment papers it states orientation is 40 hours per week.

    NP vs MA vs MD power struggle

    Maybe you need to type up a list of duties for an NP and pass it around. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, maybe some of them at least really don't understand the role of NP.

    Terminated in probation - no reason given

    The passed performance evaluation should help you in your unemployment case. If they oppose it, when you have your hearing that may get you the information you are after regarding why you were terminated.

    Duquesne University review

    I have accepted for Fall 2019. Just wondering how things are going.

    What might be going on?

    They are setting things up to give you the choice of being fired or resigning your position. If you believe this to be true, I would immediately write a very nice letter to anyone that was part of the meeting and state that you felt threatened by those in the meeting that have authority over your continued employment at the facility, and in fact bullied by the conversation, are experiencing anxiety having to work with nurses that obviously perceive you in a way that is counter to your numerous positive evaluations, blah, blah, blah. Hit it hard. Make sure the email goes to all involved. I hate to play this game, but they are playing with your livelihood and it is not a nice thing to do.

    Student Loan Help

    $29,000 is not bad.

    Never refuse a pre-employment drug test. Respectfully decline the job offer. And just stop with the marijuana. Between pre-employment, random, just cause, the ramifications if caught are just not worth it.

    Did my Interview go well? Or don’t count on a call?

    Having no experience in L&D, the questions you asked were spot on! Good luck.

    Adjusting to NIGHT SHIFTS advice??

    Put a note on your front door stating "Do Not Disturb Between 8 and 5" or whatever time you decide. It is amazing how many times during the day someone is ringing the doorbell, especially before elections, start of school (fundraisers), etc.

    Religion & ectopic abortion

    Is the course of treatment for an ectopic pregnancy methotrexate, salpingostomy, salpingectomy or abortion? OP, just want to know what your records show as course of treatment. On the OR schedule, I can assure you that salpingostomy and salpingectomy are listed, never have I seen abortion.

    What's a Nurse Practitioner?!

    I think to the non-medical world, "licensed PRACTICAL nurse" and "nurse PRACTITIONER" are similar. Hence, oh, are you going to go further and become a real nurse (RN)?

    Religion & ectopic abortion

    The situation you describe is not an abortion and I do not believe it is in conflict with any religion, except maybe those that believe any kind of medical intervention for anything is wrong and one should only rely on prayer for resolution.

    Terrified... need advice

    Get a lawyer, quit talking, admit nothing, ask that your lawyer request the results of the drug test.
