    Quick question about inpatient

    Ok then where I'm working does the norm I guess. I was surprised to see how little actual therapy goes on in an inpatient setting. If it were my child, I would assume they were getting daily therapy.

    Quick question about inpatient

    For those of you who work inpatient mental health, especially those with the child/adolescent population, how often do your patients receive individual therapy? Group therapy?

    News Flash Everybody Farts!

    I will confess to my most horrible fart story. I was working as a CNA and went into a room to get the patient into a wheel chair. A SBD slipped out and was rank. The patient scolded her husband for befouling the room and he apologized! Yes, the patient's husband took the blame for my fart.

    An Overview Of Nursing Compact Licenses

    Awesome info. I'm married to an active duty soldier and we are residents of a compact state and live in another where I am going to school. Should I license with my home of record or where I'm going to school.

    Dealing with Anxiety

    Zoloft, xanax (sparingly), CBT and letting a few trusted classmates know what was going on so they could watch out for me and be my voice of reason

    Hazing in school

    Nope, not KSU :-) and for a fundies Sim lab it was skills we hadn't covered. I get the pushing and putting students under stress. I own the fact that I got flustered and shut down. I also understand that in being somewhat vague I'll never get anyone to agree with me. Bottom line, I still find it bullying when a prof shows visible enjoyment in piling on frustration and says so in the post conference. At this point tomorrow is the final and it will be done.

    Hazing in school

    Yes, I learned that when I call a provider I'm to manipulate them into giving me the orders I want. However, I don't feel taking joy in furthering the frustration of a student is good educational practice and borders on bullying. So I will amend my original opinion to say it was bullying instead of hazing. I don't want to give too many details so as not to identify my program.

    Hazing in school

    So today was my lab final and to say it was a disaster would be kind. Evidently I had a target on my and my prof even said " I was ornery today and the more frustrated you got the more I wanted to frustrate you." I know nurses eat their young, I didn't figure it would start in the first semester in school.

    Career Switchers

    I was an elementary school teacher for 9 years. At one point I was halfway to a masters in English as a second language instruction.
  12. I know at my school you needed a 3.7 at least to make the cut. Ours was a point system too. 10*prereq GPA +2 bonus points if you have a degree for a max of 42 points. They tally everyone's points and then take the top 50 I think.
  13. I have a be in elementary ed, and half a masters in English as a second language instruction. I taught for 9 years and knew the entire time it was not for me. I am a can while in school and even on my worst day I still love it more than teaching.

    Teaching vs nursing?

    I could have written your post. God willing I will start nursing school in the fall after teaching for 9 years and staying home for 6. I just couldn't continue in the classroom. I work as a can now and have loved it.
  15. I thought my end classes were easy. Lots of busy work but easy.
