    MSN education vs leadership

    Many of those facilities are places we put students for clinicals. They actively recruit our grads into residency programs.

    MSN education vs leadership

    The Education degree is tilted toward academic education- not professional development per se. (They're all like that around the US and it baffles me) Leadership is more hospital/ facility focused.

    Academic Integrity question

    Only the school can answer that. Generally- they will want to examine a syllabus for the course (the university should be able to provide this) to make sure the same content is covered - unless there is a transfer agreement between the two schools. B...

    Academic Integrity question

    I would apply for ADN programs as well. Far lest costly, same NCLEX/ RN at the end- and since you have a previous degree- you can do an RN-to-BSN very quickly once you graduate.

    Academic Integrity question

    I wouldn't think so- esp. since even here you have been able to reflect and own the error. You'll likely have to explain it- but otherwise I think you would be fine. (I used to make admission decision for a nursing program- and I would have acc...

    Any disadvantages to WGU? Considering the program

    That is incorrect- and if you would be willing to share that person's name (privately of course) I'll make sure they get connected to the correct info. There are dedicated prelicensure (PL) enrollment people because the policies and such are so diffe...

    Any disadvantages to WGU? Considering the program

    It really depends on where in the state you live. Indy metro area has multiple start dates per year. Elkhart/ Ft. Wayne, Vincennes/ Evansville areas tend to only have on in Feb/ March.

    Termination From Employer For Refusing EUV

    You are 100% correct. ALL major religions stress serving our fellow man. “For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve on...

    Dismissal From Nursing Program - Is all hope lost?

    There is hope but it will involve complete honesty, owning what happened AND a solid plan for making certain it NEVER happens again.

    misdemeanors and getting accepted into the nursing program

    If you have had a clean record since- the Indiana BON will make you jump thru some hoops but you should be OK. (I have experience as a Director of an IN nursing program)
