    RNFA

    I’m wondering how to go about the career change. I would like to become a first assist but I’m having difficulty getting into any periop position (due to lack of opportunity). Has anyone done surg tech as an RN to gain experience? Any advice on how to get to be a RNFA? Thanks!
  2. I have had anxiety for the last 10 years. I have tried everything. I've been on numerous antidepressants and anxiolytics. I have gone to therapy. I've started exercising, I've tried meditation. I've changed my workplace, I've removed myself from toxic situations. I have literally tried everything there is to try. Recently, I've began thinking about CBD oils. I've never been a smoker, tried in my early college years, couldn't do it. However, I've read/done research on medical marijuana and CBD oil and I don't have a very good understanding of the chemical compounds of either product. As a RN, I fear what any RN fears - losing their license. However, I don't know what else to try. As I've mentioned, I've had anxiety for the last 10-11 years of my life, with pharmaceutical and non pharmaceutical proving ineffective. I feel like CBD might be my last option? But, I'm concerned about drug testing and the sort. I've read conflicting reports about CBD oil and hemp and THC concentrations, etc. Obviously, 4 years ago when I first got my license testing positive for marijuana was cause for concern. Nowadays, I feel like not only is marijuana use more recreational than ever, the increased research and support it gets for being effective for certain medical treatments is becoming greater and greater. My true question here (and I'm not looking for opinions on how to manage my anxiety in other ways, I am specifically asking about CBD oil/medical marijuana): If one can have a prescription for Xanax, Ativan, Valium, and other benzos, why so much criticism for someone having a prescription for CBD oil? I've needed Ativan for my anxiety and I was never concerned that I would test + for benzos. But when thinking about CBD oil, which is legal in my state (along with medical marijuana), I get nervous about testing positive for THC. I see a lot of backlash for people turning to medical marijuana/CBD oil because of issue of impairment and failed drug tests, but these are things that can occur when you take prescribed benzos and pain medications. Why do you think that is or what do you think makes the difference? I ask this to see if it is more of a fear of the unknown (personal opinion) or more of a legal/ethical/regulatory concern. I apologize for the long post.

    USF 2014 applicants?

    I was accepted into the 2nd degree program! I'm super excited! for those who didn't get in. DO NOT GIVE UP! I applied to the Upper Division program 2x before getting my B.S in Health Sciences. Then I applied to the 2nd degree and got in first time! Don't give up. I was so close to giving up but gave it another shot and I made it! To to those who got in, congrats! If you got into the 2nd degree program send me a message! Love to find out about you and hopefully see on April 11th!!

    USF 2014 applicants?

    They are closed this week for Spring Break! So, if you're like me, with a "APPLIED" status, it'll probably be that way until next week Hopefully the process will move quickly after spring break though!

    Nova Southeastern Winter 2013 Entry Level BSN

    Hey guys, I'm kind of confused. When I talked to Andrea on the phone she said the tiers were as follows: 3.4 all completed 3.4 pending courses 3.0 all completed 3.0 pending courses

    Would anyone who has gotten the email for interviews, like to share their GPA? I know they do tiers so I'm assuming you guys are in the first one?

    When I last spoke with a representative, about a week ago, she told me that they will start interviews between Oct. 4 to Nov. 14 and once your interview is over you will be notified around that time.

    Vanderbilt Grad Entry 2013

    Hey! I am planning on apply to the pre-specialty program with a B.S in Public Health. I'm thinking either Nurse-Midwifery, Nurse-Midwifery/FNP or Women's Health Practitioner. I'm quite nervous because it seems everyone has had a year or so to gain experience and I will be fresh out of my undergrad. I plan on taking the GRE before the end of the year. I have both Kaplan and Princeton Review GRE books. Does anyone know the average of those who got in? I know they say a minimum 3.0 but I'm sure the average is much higher, same for the GRE. I'm going to start working on recommendation letters soon and hopefully find some more volunteering. Glad I found this thread!
