  12. I feel so, so stupid right now. The optimist in me said this entire time that I can handle an occasional bout of violence from a patient. But how would I even know that if I've never been assaulted in any way in my entire life? I am really upset at t...

  14. ADN vs BSN...help

  17. I took the AANP certification and passed. I know if you are a FNP©, you are probably pretty worried about testing, too. Naturally, you've spent much time preparing and are ready to start your career! I know before I tested, I also browsed through the...
  18. Academic integrity, or cheating, is any act or behavior that gives a student an unfair advantage for the sake of improving academic performance. Cheating is not new in colleges and continues to be a problem in nursing programs. Previous surveys of en...
  19. So I just got invited and joined Sigma Theta Tau International. I don't get what the difference is for each chapters. I got invitation from Phi Pi Chapter from Chamberlain College of Nursing. I hate fraternity/sorority system so I don't really know w...
