  1. Rasmussen question???

    flying in for clinicals? nope! you have clinicals, you have labs, you have SIMs. As an LPN you would be reentering in with alot of new classes left ahead of you and there is no way you could possibly do what you are thinking. Some quarters you would ...
  2. Qualifications for Adjunct Instructors?

    In florida...an ADN nurse can teach LPN clinicals but nothing else. BSN can teach LPN clinical and lecture and also ADN clinicals. An MSN is required to teach ADN level lectures.
  3. new and struggling

    Hi Novice7, first and foremost you cant please everyone. How many students are you teaching and what percentage are leaving poor comments? One quarter I taught 108 students and if I had to guess I got about 5 bad reviews. If I taught a class of 20 an...
  4. PN Instructor vs RN Instructor

    At the school I teach at there is no pay difference between PN instructors and RN instructors...the pay difference is in the degree they have. MSN is higher pay...if you only have a BSN you cant teach RN students in the classroom or lab setting but c...
  5. Nursing Calculations Cheat sheets

    Dosage calc can be a huge hurdle for some students. Here is one strategy that I employ when I taught pharm and had to teach rookie students. I have a mathematical mind and I quickly showed them how "easy" dosage calc was by doing it "my way" on the b...
  6. Negative reviews by students

    Just my opinion.... There is always some truth if to the evals if you are consistently getting the same comments and/or a good portion of every group you teach has negative things to say. You should really look at what the students say and try not to...
  7. Recording of Class Lectures by Students

    By default, the students who are recording lectures are going to be those who are seeking any way to improve their comprehension. I think the students who check out when recording would likely check out even if they didnt have a recording to fall bac...
  8. Clinical instructor/adjunct staff

    There is loan repayment but not really for what you are looking at doing. Typically, someone who only does clinical instruction is part-time/adjunct. Adjunct, by definition, is less than full time (part-time) and there is no loan repayment program av...
  9. How satisfied are you with nurse educator or APRN career?

    99 days out of 100 i am happy with my job as a nurse educator rather than working as an NP. Not EVERY college pays poorly. My starting pay was par with a starting NP salary. I can also say that the depth of my knowledge has increased leaps and bound...
  10. Is it legal for your boss to dictate where you poop?

    Don't dictate where I poop.
  11. Samford DNP-Educator Jan 2018

    I am in the process of applying. Start date of may because I dont need the additional educator courses as I already have an MSN in nursing education. It appears that its all the same except for the first semester and last semester so from summer to s...
  12. If you facility has a ban on Phenergan IV, why were you able to scan it and administer it? That is a change that needs to take place in another department so that IV Phenergan isn't available to anyone but pharmacy. As for the vanco, it sounds like y...
  13. Trouble finding work

    Sometimes staying in one location works out...sometimes it doesn't. I only did travel nursing for a couple years but I did learn a bit about it. If you are in areas that have snowbirds (people who fly south for the winter) such as AZ or FL, you are a...
  14. Agency Nurses

    I am not a fan of agency nurses only getting an hour or two of subpar orientation. A good nurse can hit the ground running but I feel that even most good nurses need more time to become oriented to the facility. You can be a fantastic nurse but if yo...
  15. Agency Nurses

    I have worked with some incredible agency nurses in the acute care setting...but in my opinion those nurses were only about 30% of the agency nurses I have encountered. Several factors play into this. Agencies get paid when their employees work so if...
