    Olivet Post Master's FNP

    Hello, I decided to go back to school and finally get a terminal degree in nursing- before I hit 40. My girlfriend wants to do this together and try and time the marriage/children thing before it's too late. I see Olivet's tr...

    RN to MSN with prior BA

    I'll tell you my story and you can draw your own decisions. I have an undergraduate degree in Pre-Physician Assistant studies. It's a bachelor of science in health science. I decided to go the accelerated ADN route as it was cheaper and quicker than ...

    Is 28 too old to become a travel nurse?

    My parents were both in their forties when I was born...and I was their only child. Sure, the millennial generation is waiting longer to have children but 28 is not even close to the age you should think about having children. Make a plan- travel nur...
  4. Be very careful about how you handle this. Perhaps you should consult with a lawyer. If your workplace goes to the board of nursing, they are going to do an audit of your employment history. Per BON you cannot lie on job applications regarding resign...

    Do you have a free charge nurse on your unit?

    At area hospitals in Cleveland, namely Cleveland Clinic- they have taken a premium pay away from the charge nurse role. We used to get paid extra while we were in this position and now are not compensated. This is a higher liability and this was the ...

    Manager catch phrases

    The best part is when staff cynically repeat them. "Is there anything I can do for you?" Would be a frequent from my prior manager that she was completely insincere about and never followed up with you on if you had a question. A great one my mana...

    Is this reasonable or just over the top?

    I will say that when I worked on the medical units, they pushed for bedside report. During this we would update the grease boards with the oncoming nurses names and let them know that their care was being transferred- however using nursing judgement ...

    Finished my MSN this morning - ask me anything!

    I tried to enroll in this program just after finishing NCLEX but had to wait as the cohorts did not have a slot open until September, I would say a lot of the content for the MSN program was a branch off of what I had just learned in the ADN program ...

    Olivet Nazarene FNP

    I've been trying to get into this program as I just finished the MSN at WGU however I keep getting hit with road blocks. They said my 3 P's courses will not qualify for their program and I will have to retake them. This is going to be a setback to th...

    MSN to Post Masters NP

    How was the post master's program? I am trying to get into the 2.2017 cohort as I was just awarded my MSN from WGU. I read it was a 13 month program. Is it broken down into semesters? 6 weeks? I know you only have to take the core NP courses.

    MSN - how long does it take?

    I completed the RN to MSN bridge program at WGU. I literally just finished my last course for the MSN yesterday. From program start I had completed the BSN component in 7 months. Now remember, I wasn't awarded a BSN degree. I have a paper from WG...

    Helping patients kill themselves

    This form of death has been long going in the hospital setting, with DNR patient's getting Q1 Fentanyl. The translation to OP "death with dignity" is controversial, I agree but I also respect it. The patients don't fear death, they fear the prolongme...
