    Canadian nurse in the states

    Off-topic but I see that you went to Ryerson U. Did you do Centennial- Ryerson? or you went for part-time Ryerson program? If it was part-time Ryerson program how was it? Actually a friend of mine is thinking to go back to school to finish her RN. She is an RPN and wants to go back to school part-time. She is contemplating between part-time Ryerson or part-time online Nipissing program. Any suggestions?

    I would totally go for full-time opportunity in the US. It is so hard to find a full tine job in Ontario. Good luck to you!

    Canadian nurse in the states

    Thank you for your response. I wrote CRNE.. We didn't have NCLEX at the time. So I think I will have to write it again. Plus a friend of mine is RPN in Canada and she is wondering if she can transition her Nursing diploma into ADN. We are both planning to work in the states (California) together. After some research we figured Canadian PN program is same as ADN in the states. My friend is traveling to California next month so I was suggesting her to got to any nursing college in Cali with her diploma and transcripts and see if that helps. Any of you guys have any other suggestions? Thank you!

    Canadian nurse in the states

    Hello fellow nurses.... I am a Canadian nurse planning to practice nursing in the United States.... maybe travel nursing... not sure yet.. I am aware that I would need to get my work permit/ SNN either way, but I am not sure if I would be able to write my US NCLEX without SNN. Once I have my NCLEX then apply for work permit or do I have to get my work permit before I can apply for NCLEX? Any information is appreciated. Thank you.

    ADN and NCLEX query

    Hello, I am Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) from Toronto, Canada, practicing RPN for past 4 years in hospital setting. Now I am planning to work in SF, California. I don't know anyone who is a nurse in the United States that's why I am hoping to get a response from you. So my question is if I may be eligible for NCLEX RN? where can I find more information regarding it? Originally I had thought I would have to write NCLEX PN because I thought your LPN / LVN program was similar to our RPN program here in Canada, but after doing some research I realized it is similar to your ADN program. RPNs scope of practice in Canada is much wider than LPN/LVN in the states. We basically do everything from giving PO meds to giving Packed RBCs to a pt and everything in between. So I am hoping to convert my Practical nursing diploma (2 years long with proper clinical rotations and preceptorship) from Canada into ADN and write NCLEX- RN. Thank you.

    Help with Nursing Care Plan

    yea in addition to that i asked my professor due to her inability to express herself i came up with impaired verbal communication r/t neurological impairement secondary to stroke a.e.b. aphasia. This is what she replied me: "Impaired verbal communication is a good start to psychosocial diagnosis, but assess it further: how might that impairment affect the patient's psychosocial world? What potential problems might arise secondary to the impaired communication?"

    Help with Nursing Care Plan

    Thanks for reply :) I was only with my patient for 2 days (both days few hours). Here is what i got from her chart: She had right ankle fracture, right sided weakness with residual aphasia due to stroke. she is non-weight bearing. Fall risk: mod-high Here is my assessment during time i was with her: Her vital signs were R 20 shallow, pulse 69, oxygen saturation 97, T 36 degree C, BP 130/58. When i was documenting her vital signs i noticed her BP goes up sometimes (which means she is hypertensive) First day when i saw her she said that she was in a little pain but the week after (my second day at clinical) she said that she was feeling better. There was no breakdown of skin however, there was little redness on her bump. She repond to loud stimuli. ADLs i gave her full bed-bath, she is unable to do pericare. Transfer with one person, difficulty ambulating and she can feed herself but need assistance with opening food. she use commode for toiletering and is incontinence of urine (wear briefs). She almost participates in everything. I did ask her how did she fall and she was trying to tell me about it but she was not able to express herself. she lives in banglow with stairs. I hope it helps.

    Help with Nursing Care Plan

    Hi everyone, I am a first semester student and looking after 83 yo female patient in rehabilitation. Recently, she had surgery for fractured ankle (she broke her ankle because she fell). she is non weight bearing. she is incontinence of urine and continence of bowel. she had left CVA 10 yrs ago due to that she has right sided weakness plus expressive aphasia (she understands everything but is unable to expresses herself). she has a husband and a son and her son lives in US. Whenever i start conversation with her she will understands everything but is unable to articulate her thoughts and express them. pt states, "i am sorry, i can't tell you". She is hard of hearing. For ADLs, she is not totally dependent but needs lots of assistance. I need one physical diagnosis and one psychosocial diagnosis for my care plan: for physical diagnosis: 1) Risk for fall r/t impaired mobility secondary to CVA 2) Risk for impaired skin integrity r/t urinary incontinece. 3) Impaired physical mobility r/t neuromuscular impairment secondary to CVA aeb inability to walk Which should i use? which one is my priority for psychosocial diagnosis: 1) impaired social interaction r/t communication barrier secondary to aphasia aeb inability of client to express herself. OR social isolation r/t ? Please help me.
