    Clinical Grading

    My school uses pass/fail and we evaluate student progress each week, looking for just that - progress. Our students go to different clinical sites so it is deemed unfair to grade students on practice skills when some students may have more opportunity than others to shadow and observe nurses before actually performing the skill.

    Gender neutral opening of Congress

    This didn't irritate me as much as hearing Hawley say "irregardless" in his speech.... https://www.cracked.com/blog/6-words-made-up-by-stupid-people-we-should-learn-to-accept/

    What is up with the level of entitlement?

    This is an interesting post because it reflects what my new grad students say to me when they come back to visit me on campus - in reverse. Last week a newly hired grad texted me, "why don't the experienced nurses want to work with me? I know I need extra help and time but I worked hard to become a nurse. I'll get there!" My students, who I have encouraged to check out this site, have heard all the "Nurse eat their young" stories and I suspect are entering the field with the preconceived notion that they will be unwelcome. A chip on their shoulders and anticipating the worst may be getting in their way from day 1.

    Please Read: Fired from first nursing job

    Try to take this as a minor blip in your nursing career. There are so many different paths in nursing and you may find yours on the next attempt. I agree with other posters that your former employers don't care about why you were unsuccessful, and as you look for new employment your future employers will not be too concerned if your first job wasn't what you had hoped. Take a breath, care for yourself, and try again. Good luck!

    I Really Do Not Want the COVID Vaccine 😞

    Are you concerned about the long-term effects of COVID if you or your family contract the virus?
  7. I am an instructor in a nursing school and a verbal attack in class happened to me. The student quickly sent me an email of apology, which I appreciated. However, the class seemed to continue to shun the student (no responses to her questions/comments in online class - this silence is normally a very rare occurrence). She eventually said something in class similar to what you describe, CommunityRNBSN, and the class expressed appreciation for her apology as well. All is forgiven now and we are a team again.

    Nurse Educator Salary in Middle/East Tennessee

    I teach in a technical school (for profit) in an LPN program. I was surprised the salaries are better than non-profit state schools. You might want to check that out in your state too.

    Online Education: Elements of a good Discussion Post

    I had that experience also, so I began to prepare my "responses" ahead of time. You can usually predict what issue or topic someone will include in their response and so I would prepare a rather generic idea with citation and post it like this: You make a good point, Karen, that the inclusion of ____ in your care plan will help prevent adverse reactions. In addition, you might consider...[insert response here] I seldom had a problem inserting my idea in my response to peers
  11. We are so hopeful that our BON will offer alternatives for clinical hours since our sites are closed to us. Per our NPA, LPN students can't use simulation as an alternative although RN students can. Our seniors are scheduled to graduate in mid-April and at this rate they will not have the number of clinical hours required to sit for boards. Has your state's BON offered alternatives?

    Work hours per week for nursing instructor?

    I had no education experience other than leading in-services in my clinical setting (LTC) when I decided to switch to education. I found an opportunity in a technical school LPN program and I love it. It is a good way to get your feet wet and gain experience as an instructor. Most require an instructor to have an MSN or to have a BSN and enroll in an MSN program. My goal was to teach in a university nursing program, but I just can't leave my LPNs. Oh, and I work 8-4:30, 5 days a week. No weekends.

    Touro University - Nevada DNP Program - anyone???

    trauma RUs, "If your MSN was in an area of advanced practice nursing, you will not be required to take any extra practicum hours, only the practicum hours incorporated into the standard curriculum." per their website. My MSN was not in an area of advanced practice nursing, it was in nursing administration so I had only 120 practicum hours when I entered the DNP program. Still I managed to complete this program in 1 year.

    PhD or DNP to become Faculty?

    I went from an MSN with a specialty in Patient Administration to a DNP. I was a charge nurse in a LTC facility and was not an APRN or NP. I wanted to get into education and that's what I do today.
