  1. How many times can you take the nclex

    As many times as it takes to pass. I know one woman who has been taking them faithfully, twice a year since 1993.
  2. Greetings all! I am debating about taking the on-line Adult Critical Care Course through Indiana University School of Nursing. Has anyone heard of this course? Has anyone taken this course? Let me know what you think. Cheers!
  3. Looking For Other Pa Nurses!!!!

    Actually... when I went to grad. school, GRE's were only a requirement for graduation. I took GRE's in the summer before I entered my 4th year of my grad program. It took me 20 minutes... I answered "C" to everything and my written paragraph was 'R...
  4. The Guys Club: Guy Students Come on In!

    Patrick: In most major metropolitan areas where NP programs have sprouted up like weeds, yes... the market is saturating. I know in the area I am living in, two times per year, two colleges push out anywhere from 4 to 10 NP's each. The jobs that th...
  5. The Guys Club: Guy Students Come on In!

    I'm a male NP... however, I am the wrong one to ask about the NP route. The quick and the dead of it is this: The money is incommensurate with the job responsibilities, the market is being super saturated with NP's because there's a program on every ...
  6. Any one from Wilkes-Barre area?

    I live in the Pocono's... less than a half hour from Wilkes Barre [alright, about 20 minutes, depending on how I drive]. Nice to meet everyone!
  7. Introductions

    Greetings to other nurses of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I live in the Pocono Mountains of PA... work at a local hospital--- medical/surgical nursing, and teach nursing part time in a local university.
  8. Co-workers think I'm crazy for doing this

    Deaconess is NLN accredited as well as Regionally accredited. Therefore, it doesn't matter if the nurses at your hospital 'like it' or not. The only program I found is the RN to BSN program, I am not sure which program you will be in. Check with...
  9. LTC Rant - Call Freaking Report!

    I agree with TracyB--- I also see Brandys point. I guess working in both LTC and acute care, I have seen both sides. I have sent resident's to hospitals with fully intact skin and received them back with stage III pressure sores, and significant ...
  10. Which Boards?

    Depends on your specialty... I took the American Nurses Credentialing Center [ANCC], because it was the only one available for Gerontological Nurse Practitioners. I believe that most other specialties have other choices. I thought that they were eas...
  11. Any professional pointers???

    Something else you may want to consider----- preparing a teaching portfolio. Granted, at this point, your portfolio would not be very big, but it may very well impress the interview committee. You can find information on it here: http://www.arches...
  12. Education Interventions to Pass NCLEX

    I can't remember... I think it was in the most recent issue of Nursing Education-- there was a fairly well done study that discussed preparation for NCLEX. I can't remember the entire content of the article, but it was pretty good. If your school s...
  13. Nurse Educator Opinions

    I know it sounds like a dreadful analogy... but the more you think about it, the truer it sounds...
  14. staff development certification

    Jean--- are you an NNSDO member? I was considering it.... but I am just not sure. I wonder if they are very 'acute care' only oriented, or if they balance between various staff development settings.
  15. Nurse Educator Opinions

    First of all, not all students will become a nurse. It is not meant for everyone. I look at myself as having a duty to society. I am saying, by passing the students to the next level that they meet the objectives of the level. I will not let so...
