  1. Wedging my foot in that crack...

    thank you everyone for your insight. I do enjoy "paperwork" as much as I enjoy patient care, so that part would be fine with me. Especially good observations about sometimes lower level healthcare jobs not being all they're cracked up to be sometim...
  2. Wedging my foot in that crack...

    Wow, MoopleRN. Someone's cheerios got ****** in this morning. No need to be a giant turd, especially when you obviously did not understand what I wrote. First, yes, I am seriously qualified for an "admin slot" (meaning administrative, clerical wo...
  3. Is my husband being unreasonable?

    I think just for the kids sake it would be good for them not to be left without a parent. There's something to be said about the security of always have a parent there through the night.
  4. What motivates you to keep going?

    My daugher. The thought that one day I won't have to skip meals so she can have all of hers. So by the time she gets into school she won't be the kid in class who gets made fun of because her clothes don't fit right. So she can have all of her nee...
  5. Toot toot!

    Thanks everyone! That pt comment is classic!
  6. Wedging my foot in that crack...

    I am posting here specifically to hear from nurses, so pls don't move! I am in pre-nursing (with a previously unrelated BA) working in the hospitality industry full time. I want to be in the medical field badly, but only have my CNA so far. The wag...
  7. Will I be in over my head? Advice please!

    no. you will not. If you can do what you did to get your HS diploma and get to where you are....literally girl, you can do anything you want to do. You have what it takes to do it. If you aren't understanding the subject matter, you are one of th...
  8. Toot toot!

    I just have to toot. I am not, really really did not think I was a math/science type. However, nursing and the medical field have facinated me since childhood. I read PDRs and other nerdy stuff for fun. I always thought I was more artsy than good...
  9. Online BSN - Is it taken seriously?

    I am specifically posting this in the Nursing forum to get advice from actively practicing nurses, so please don't move! I have heard some recommend online ADN-BSN programs from those "university of phoenix" type schools. This seems like a conveni...
  10. Do you have a set schedule?

    Do you only work 7-3, 7-7, 3-11, 11-7? Or do you have to bounce back and forth between all these shifts? Do you have a weekly schedule with chosen days off? Do you get it in advance? Do you get scheduled for whatever they want (maybe even all of ...
  11. What is considered "night shift"?

    I see a lot of day shift vs. night shift on these boards and was wondering what people define those shifts as. Days I get...it's obviously during the day. Nights...are mid shifts classified as nights for the most part? The 3-11? Obviously the dre...
  12. mom vs nurse

    I have a two year old (4 kids! wow!) and work full time, go to school part time. I sit down on sundays and schedule out my week. Study time, work, one hour/day exclusive mommy daughter time (more on days off, one whole day of the week is nothing b...
  13. How many hours a week do you part timers devote to school? I am doing my pre-reqs now, devoting 20-30 hours a week to school. Unless I cut my work hours back, I don't know if I can add any more school time than that in (work FT, 2 YO at home, essen...
  14. If I hate being a Cna, should I stop pursuing Nursing?

    I loved CNA school, but the clinicals left a bad taste in my mouth. My preceptor didn't speak english (which I loved because I am trying to learn their language), but because of that I feel like I didn't learn as much as I could. Still, I liked hav...
  15. Bodies Exhibit....have you been?

    I saw it in London (or maybe one like it?) about ten years ago. AMAZING. Really solidified my interest in medicine and set me on the path to NS. If you haven't seen it, RUN, don't walk...eat ramen for a week so you can buy a ticket...do whatever y...
