    So got my final grades back today after hitting that submit button last Sunday night. I'm floored. It is over. I did it. April 28th I will walk across the stage and graduate like a BA getting a BA! It took me 12 months and fourteen days! I am so happy and cannot believe it! Thank you flames for all the guidance and help. I cannot tell you the difference it has made!

    We are using the week that nothing is due to complete the following weeks assignments. So instead of the assignment taking a week to complete it is two weeks. I guess. I am so ready to hit submit! This is week five so five more to go and then D.O.N.E!!!!!

    Yes. It is all the same assignments as the 5 week just spaced out over 10. I actually wish it was just five weeks because like flames it is a topic I am interested in and it is easy to write about. The other thing I don't like about the ten weeks is that you still have two DQ's each week. So technically we get 10 more dqs then the five week class got. Weeks 5,7, and 8 there is no "assignment" due by Sunday so that's nice but you have those extra dqs still. I called and asked why they changed the class and it had something to due with the amount of hours you needed to claim for the "clinical" experience.

    I am actually halfway through it! This is week five! It is actually going pretty well. The fact that it is ten weeks spreads it out pretty good to where you don't feel overwhelmed. I am so ready to be done!!!!

    I took trends and patho together. Both were good classes. I enjoyed patho a lot because it was more than just researching and writing a paper. It was more clinical thinking. I will post how the capstone goes!

    Ok so I am about to start my capstone and am confused by this "Contact your BON" thing going on. Is that only about moving on to get your MSN or are you saying that my state (NM) may not recognize me as a BSN RN because I got it from GCU?

    GCU PICOT Capstone Project... Topic HELP!!

    Hello all you wonderful people!!! I am about to start my Capstone course at GCU and am having a hard time working out what I can do as a PICOT topic successfully. I am interested in ER protocols and their benefit, the treatment psych patients receive through the ER, and also wound care. If anyone can point me in the right direction on how to form a PICOT statement for one of those that will also allow me to find current research on it I would be SOOOOOOO appreciative. I have spent several days trying to work this out and am banging me head against the wall!!! Thanks!

    PICO question! HELP!! Medication Errors

    So I want to do something on how more errors are made in the ER when nurses are interrupted during the medication process. My comparison would be uninterrupted vs interrupted I guess. Not sure on the intervention exactly thought about barcode scanners. Lots of hospitals have went to this to decrease medication errors. As far as time frame I think that the past 5-7 years of research would be ok?!?

    PICO question! HELP!! Medication Errors

    Hello friends! I am needing help formulating a PICOT question on the topic of Medication Errors. I am just concerned on how to word it and what area to gear it towards as I will have to build on it over the rest of my BSN program (GCU). I need it to be something that I can do in depth continued research on so that makes it very hard for me to do. I am hitting a wall here. HELP!! Thanks!

    RN to BSN--Grand Canyon University

    I am in my last week of Stats this week cant say I will miss it much! However, I had better luck with it then Ethics (I took both together). I thought Ethics was going to be more patient related and I was very wrong. I will be starting Nursing research next week anyone have an instructor that stuck out to recommend for it?
