  1. I'm honestly not sure why you'd want to continue working as a staff RN once you are a NP. They are completely different jobs/roles and functions. Do you want to be a nurse, or a nurse practitioner? If you want to "keep" your basic RN skills, it seems like you may not be so sure about your decision to pursue the NP role.

    buying supplies with your own money

    It's probably going to be an unpopular opinion, but your workplace should supply the tools that you need to do your job. Even if it requires the principal and other 6 figure workers taking a little pay cut at the end of the year. I wouldn't spend a personal dime for my essential job functions. If you unfortunately continue to do so, I would definitely look into tax write offs if you don't already. But again, you shouldn't have to spend a dime. If it is something nonessential, that is another issue. A vital sign machine is essential - there has to be somebody who can force the school to cough up $300 to replace it, or the kids don't get vital sign checks. That would fix it very quickly.

    What happened to all the Walden Haters?

    I would say to look elsewhere (preferably brick & mortar) for your graduate education. Also, I think it's best guidance from this site to not include personally identifying information in your posts.

    Orlando Tragedy - "Why Does It Bother You So Much?"

    As a nurse, your oath doesn't include anything about abominations to god. And, being a Christian has nothing to do with providing nursing/medical care, so, that part of the last statement is pointless. Anyways.

    Orlando Tragedy - "Why Does It Bother You So Much?"

    Wrong. This was a direct attack at LGBT people and those refusing to see this are blinded by their own bias. It was also a terroristic attack, but let's not be simple minded. These two are not mutually exclusive. This was, and always will be, an attack on the LGBT community. We can "take possession of" this, and we do claim this. We are attacked, raped, kicked out of the house, put down, passed by on jobs/rent/housing/adoption/everything among many other things on a daily basis. A gay night club is one of the FEW places we go to feel safe and like a community, because the heterosexual world outside unfortunately still does not offer that for us. This was a terrorist attack and an attack on the LGBT community.
