I have a friend who just graduated from nursing and is going to volunteer with a charity for six weeks around South America after her birthday. I want to make her a travel package as a gift. I would like to know what items are suggested and recommended for her volunteer trip. Thanks!
Answer by Lola
Well, you could include some items that may be useful for whatever she’s volunteering for. Depending on where she’s going and what the conditions are going to be like, some basic things like bug spray or sunblock…you could include some comforts from home like a small jar of peanut butter, her favorite chocolate bar…maybe a phone card to call home with. I’m sure she will appreciate any gesture…I would just make sure whatever you give isn’t too large or heavy because of airline luggage restrictions.
i received a call from my nursing home director. both the administrator and the director of nursing wanted to talk to me immediately. i asked them what was this about and both did not respond. i explained that i like my job (been there for 1 week) and do not want to be fired for any “PERSONALITY CONFLICTS” with a co-worker. they continued with no response!!!!! i then told them if you are going to fire me then let me know but i dont know what infraction i broke. AGAIN NO ANSWER!!! i then told them i guess you want me to resign so i resign immediately. they finally spoke and said they want their policy book returned that day, which i did. i have been a nurse for 12 years and did not have any problems with anyone while working there!!!! i am very very upset that the state board of nursing is investigating me. i could lose my license if i cant PROVE that i didnt do it!!!! do i speak with a lawyer??? any advice from you health care workers??? any one gone thru similar problems??? REMEMBER THE STATE BOARD OF NURSING WILL MAKE A DETERMINATION BASED ON THE “EVIDENCE” IN THE INVESTIGATION!!!!!! MY LICENSE AND MY LIVLEHIID IS ON THE LINE. PLEASE ANSWER, SINCE I HAVE TO TALK TO THEM TOMORROW AND WANT TO CLEAR MY NAME!!!!!! if i lose my license , i will not be able to practice nursing!!!!!! i have never been acused of any abuse before!!!! i am vety worried. thanks for any help.

I’m not a health care worker and am not familiar with the details of your situation,but I can say that with your livelihood at stake you need all
the help you can get. A good lawyer can work wonders,it’ll show the other side you’re serious and have legal expertise on your side. By all
means get one.

I did not pass my first exam. I have Saunders, HESI, and Incredibly Easy books with the cd’s? I need to stick to one study plan and go straight through with it instead of bits and pieces from different sources. Does anyone feel any one thing in particular helped them to pass this exam? Thank you for any tips or advice. I am gun shy of this exam at this point and I was not the first go.

I’m not a nurse, but you may be able to find some reviews of such manuals at www.amazon.com. I’ve heard that many don’t pass the first time around just as many lawyers, accountants and those that took the A+ certification for computers needed to have taken their certification test again. Please don’t allow that to discourage you and instead look forward.
I have my bachelor’s degree in sports medicine, and am going to the local community college to become an RN (the nearest entry level masters program was over 2 hours away, so there went that idea…) I was wondering if, when I am looking for a job, the fact that I have another degree will give me an edge over other RNs with just an associates degree. Will I also get paid more?
Answer by ASHLEY S
With a BSN you can teach or be a head nurse….along with other management positions. Thats the only difference that I know of….theres not really a pay difference starting out.
I am a freshman at the University of Portland and am planning to major in nursing and minor in Biology. I received at least an A- in all of my classes this term. I’m married and have a one year old son. Are there any scholarships available to me?
Answer by we are more alike than not
Congrats on your awesome grades! Have you checked your college to see what scholarships are available? This is the first thing I would do. Next, I would do something that takes a bit of time at sign-up, but then you just pick and choose (basically just how bad you desire scholarships). FAST WEB is a website where you fill out a profile, that in turn selects (according to your profile) the scholarships that may be available to you. It is way cool! Time consuming, yes especially to start. But worth it! Be totally honest when you fill out the profile to get the best possible matches for college funds (scholarships) available for your situation. Good Luck!!
