  1. Scary Nurses

    I can tell you I am not exaggerating. While I was in "orientation" for this role I am far from a newbie nurse. I have worked night shift for some time and can understand the need to take a quick nap, run stairs, etc. This behavior is clearly beyond t...
  2. Scary Nurses

    I am at a loss. Why do we continue to allow scary nurses to continue to practice? Why do employers continue to keep these nurses around? The nurse "training" me right now sleeps for several hours during the shift. He also leaves the floor to go "food...
  3. I Graduated!

    Well SURPRISE Ivy Tech sent our paperwork a week later than they said they would. Doesn't sound like it would make a difference right, except it made a huge difference with the timing of when other schools also sent in the paperwork. It took a lot lo...
  4. I Graduated!

    I graduated this week from Ivy Tech's LPN-RN program. It was hell at times, but I am so happy I did it. Good luck to those who are starting up this summer/fall.
  5. Indiana Board of Nursing Question

    I wouldn't panic yet. Call Monday and see what they can do to help. I am sure there is proof somewhere, it just has to be found. Ivy Tech typically requires proof. Maybe contact them to see if they still have your documentation on file?
  6. LDP RN Warsaw IN

    Look at the local hospitals. A simple google search will tell you what is close by. There are a few medical facilities in that area. I've never worked for any of them so I can't tell you how good they are.
  7. Current Ivy tech LPN to RN transition students

    It isn't typically offered in the summer at SB, but due to so many failing there is a rumor it might be offered for certain students. Don't let that worry you though. They are changing instructors around (or at least that's the rumor too). Good luck!
  8. When to apply?

    Thank you. I was just so surprised to hear that so many were applying so early.
  9. Yacker Tracker in the NICU ???

    So did they account for alarms, crying families, or crying babies? NICU's tend to be quiet on the staff front. It's thing out of your control that makes them "noisy". Hopefully this passes soon.
  10. First Hospital Job

    Congrats to you! Good luck with your new position and school!
  11. I'd stay in the job you love. Nursing is not for everyone and takes A LOT of sacrifice.
  12. Current Ivy tech LPN to RN transition students

    3 semesters. Summer, Fall, and Spring. At least at the SB location.
  13. When to apply?

    I have been an LPN for 11 years. I am graduating from an ASN program this May. It's a mix of traditional and transition students like myself. My question is when do you guys think I should apply? If I apply now I feel like HR might get irritated for ...
  14. I GOT IN!

    Congrats! You are about to embark on the most exhausting/frustrating/expensive/and time consuming adventure. Hopefully you are one of those who graduate and pass NCLEX. Get as many of your affairs in order now as you can because life will be busy onc...
  15. Smoking Nurses

    I think nurses are no different than the rest of the population. Everyone knows how awful smoking is for you. Everyone knows it can lead to lung cancer. Sure nurses may have a more in depth knowledge, but so do other healthcare providers like MD's an...
