  1. Traveling with a dog

    I'm on a local travel assignment now. I'm considering getting a camper/5th wheel for my doggo and I to travel in. I have a pitbull, and most mobile home parks don't allow them. However, you can also park in a state park with a permit. And they're les...
  2. Anyone applying to Pratt Community College LPN to RN program?

    Hutchinson actually has an IV Cert class in Hutchinson, McPherson, and Newton I believe. So, you can go to any campus. Also, they have an online class and I took it.
  3. Post-MSN Cert. FNP

    This is my ultimate goal - to be a FNP. There is a great scholarship program that helps people attain those goals if they agree to work in an underserved community after graduating for a certain amount of time. If you would be willing to share your e...
  4. Creating a Nurse's "Mobile Office"

    I'm so glad that someone took the time to share what they carry on a daily basis. I've been trying to assemble my things in an orderly fashion. I'll be starting my second ever full time RN nursing job at a local nursing facility. I'll be working 12 h...
  5. News Flash Everybody Farts!

    I'm absolutely cackling from reading this thread! I'm the non-politically-correct girl. Before becoming a nurse, I spent four years working in auto parts. My coworkers took off running if I walked up to them and said, "Hey. You guys wanna hear someth...
  6. Hutchinson CC LPN to RN Traditional Bridge

    I'm a nursing student at Hutchinson Community College's LPN to RN Traditional Bridge Program. I'm seeing lots and lots of posts about different programs and I'd like to share my experiences this far. I started my LPN to RN "Tranitions" class mid Jun...
  7. Anyone applying to Pratt Community College LPN to RN program?

    You may want to take another look at Hutchinson, or another program as I heard that Pratt recently lost their accreditation.
  8. Accepted!!

    I'm accepted into the traditional RN bridge program and starting in June. I'm terrified to say the least!
  9. Help with case studies

    That's a lot of output in 2 hours for a febrile patient. Where exactly is the stab wound? What does the Foley output look like
  10. Anyone applying to Pratt Community College LPN to RN program?

    Have you considered Hutchinson Community College LPN to RN program? I am accepted into their traditional bridge and the application period for the online programs just started this month.
  11. Taking LPN to RN prerequisites

    I had most of my RN prereqs done before I started lpn programs. If you know that is what you want to do, and if time is of the essence, by all means take courses. Just make sure that you don't have to ignore your lpn studies.
  12. College

    Something to think about, when you are applying to different nursing schools, make sure you are able to go to all the schools that you apply to.
  13. Nursing School

    I'm sorry to say, but evening clinical rotation is a rare thing when you are first starting. It's possible to still work, most of the people in my class worked through school. Just make sure you run your schedule as efficiently as possible. Make very...
  14. Squeamish future nursing student

    Cracking up reading this article. I am an lpn, do wound care on a regular basis. However, my mom just had surgery and I have had to assist her with post BM paperwork. On more than one occasion I felt myself winding up to gag. Some menthol rub on your...
  15. Questioning my major

    I think patient contact is what you make of it. You will still have the opportunity to speak with your patients and educate them on different areas all the while doing whatever you are tasked to do.
