  1. For anyone considering Capella for an MSN...

    Wow! Congratulations on completing your MSN! While you were waiting the 8 months to begin the Capstone, did you have to pay tuition each 12 weeks or did they put that on hold until you actually started your Capstone? Just wondering how billing ...
  2. MSN- Leadership: will I survive?

    Hi Evea, did you sign up for the WGU program? If you did, do you like it?
  3. Hi, I'm interested in WGU's MSN Leadership. Just wondering if anyone knows if a lot has changed from the old version last year? Also are there any online tests or is everything based on writing papers? Thank you.
  4. Thank you NRSKaren!!
  5. Thank you NRSKarenRN. I understand that all nursing programs have to be approved but I'll give you an example. Grand Canyon University's MSN program for example is approved by California but it's not listed as an approved program by the Tennessee Boa...
  6. I just have a general question that I'm hoping some will have the answer to. Do MSN programs have to be Board of Nursing approved? There are so many programs out there and I can't imagine that our state Boards of Nursing would know about all of those...
  7. What the heck? (fat-shaming at work)

    I'm going to keep this short because that's how you should respond to them - short and sweet. I've had to deal with some ignorant comments from former patients' family members, and I've learned to say "I'll be happy to discuss anything related to (cl...
  8. Help With Software

    Hi Frank, The nurses are all given 24 hours to get their documentation submitted, and it then shows up in QA. Some follow the rules, and others don't. We say that we submit everything within 72 hours, but t's been more and more difficult lately...
  9. Home Health LVN vs RN

    I'm very glad to hear that you're considering home health, as an LPN / LVN. You guys are in such great demand right now, and will be for a long, long time. Re experience, it depends on the state you're in. California requires 1 year of experien...
  10. Help With Software

    I'll try my best to respond to your questions. I work in HH but I'm mostly in the office doing QA there days, although I do work in the field at times, and I also have a lot of interaction with the nurses in the field on a daily basis. 1. Most ...
  11. WGU vs Aspen University

    May I ask why you did not like the MSN program at WGU? Anything you could share would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  12. VA Client Scheduling

    Hello everyone. I do scheduling for HH (among other responsibilities) and I'm trying to figure out how best to schedule visits with the "new" 6-7 week episode. If your initial 2 visits are 2 x a week, followed by 2 weekly visits and then a 2 biweekly...
  13. schedule

    I think that if you were covering mostly Skilled Nursing and Recert visits vs SOC, then your schedule would be a little more flexible. If you're doing mostly SOCs then it would just depend on what comes in each day, or the day before. Good place to l...
