Re: Thinking of either University or School of Nursing

I think that going to a university and receiving your BSN is the best for these reasons:

1. A BSN degree will be good for you because it gives you entry-level work in nursing.

2. Most of the students nowadays do get their BSN degrees.

I wish you the best and please go for your BSN degree.

Wow, this is a great school of nursing. The school of nursing description is well written and it clearly states what each student should do when they are accepted into the program. I am so happy to have read your description about your school of nursing.

Re: Maintain Good Posture While Using Technology

I can remember when I was in nursing school, they always told us to save your back. They also showed us a way to bend down that was not harmful or hurting of your back. They told us to keep your back straight while bending and use as much leg strength as you can. So, I tried it and my back has felt ...

Re: Focus: The Nurse and the Stethoscope

I can remember when I was in nursing school and I first held the stethoscope and put it in my ears. Then, I listened to heart sounds and did blood pressure readings. It was a glorious sound in my ears. Nurses are expected to do heart sounds, breath sounds in the lungs, bowel sounds, aortic sounds in...
