  1. This article sounds very unreal. In the ICU, the number of patients I have ever cared for at one time was three. That was a long hard night, I don't think I ever sat down. How do 2 nurses take care of 10 ventilator patients AND a normal patient lo...
  2. I attended GCU, which by some descriptions would be considered a large Brick and Mortar university that offers online and distance learning. I was not impressed with what I learned, but not sure why. Part of me expected to learn a multitude of info...

    shut off at 75

    Just relax and wait for your score. Have a drink and smile because there is nothing you can do about it now. I cannot be sure, but only seeing 75 questions is a good indicator that you have passed. A good indicator of success but still not a sure...

    265 questions is almost guaranteed if your a male.

    I had planned this long post that would have been mean spirited, but now I cannot do it. Passed with 75 questions in a little more than 1.5 hours. I would correlate this set of facts with how these male nurses were prepared. I would ask them wher...
  6. Go to the DORA Colorado website and verify your license. I never received an email like that when I passed but it has been a while ago and things change. If you did pass then congratulations.

    BSN-MSN Education

    I do like it but I do not enjoy being contacted by my program mentor every week. Every week they call to make sure you are doing okay and make goals for the week. I am a very independent worker and don't need her to help make my goals. A couple of...

    BSN-MSN Education

    Hello, I just finished my first class for the BSN-MSN Nursing Education Track. So far it hasn't been exceptionally stressful other than currently having two jobs and trying to fit in school work.

    When they're SO sure they're right...

    After returning a patient to our Med/Surg floor a nurse thought I promptly deserved an incident report. Seems like I returned the patient to the floor with make-up (blush) across the abdomen. How careless I was to drop it on the patient and then no...

    I can understand your frustrations about the instructors but the list going around has been quite useless for most of us. Only one of my instructors were on the list so it was not helpful. The best strategy is to open the classroom the Friday or Sa...
