Congrats! I know how you feel. I didn't get in the first year I applied - so it tasted that much sweeter when I finally got in. Are you going to be working too?

Yes, I'll be working, but my hours will go down to about 24-32/week. UTMB, the school I'll be going to, offers a great 'work study' program where I can work there and go to school there.

From a recent commercial...
"Erections lasting more than four hours, although rare, require immediate medical attention."

NURSE! NURSE! Little help please!

Seriously,
Congrats! A most noble profession, one requiring a level of knowledge and heart that I wish more people would really appreciate.

Too funny that you should mention that. The other day a nurse friend of mine was saying that this patient came in complaining that he had had an erection for more than 4 days. Seriously, I am NOT joking. The doctors tried everything they could to get the erection to go down, but the guy has some sort of vascular disease. Well, needless to say a 4 day erection is not good! On that 5th day, the blood in the dude's 'little dude' started to clot and blood wasn't flowing properly, if you know what I mean. Unfortunately, the dude's 'little dude' had to be amputated. I know this sounds like a joke, and I wish it was for that poor man's sake, but this REALLY happened. He had actually been in the hospital before for the same reason. So yes....erections lasting a prolonged period of time require immediate attention!!

This is the funniest story I have ever heard. Gee 4+ days with an "erection" you think he used Viagra?

With the much-hyped nurse shortages, why are they so selective about letting people in nursing schools? You'd think they'd teach anyone who asks if the situation's as bad as the media portrays...

I'm not asking for myself obviously; sick people are gross. I wouldn't mind blood, but someone coughing, yuck.

They had an interest solution to this problem on South Park the other night.

An estimated 19,000 qualified nursing applicants will be turned away this year from entering nursing school. It's not that they are so selective about letting people into nursing school, I'm sure they would let any and all qualified people in....but THE problem is that just like there is a nursing shortage, there is a nursing FACULTY shortage. Just not enough teachers...and too many sick people of course.

That is awesome. In New York (I work for a Nursing Home), they are basically paying for aides to go to school to become nurses since the shortages are so vast.

I agree about the teachers-we always have a hard time finding an RN to be the "Inservice Coordinator" when one leaves.

Good luck-it is a very noble and valued profession. The work is hard, but you are helping out society which is always a good thing.

BTW, in the nursing home, I am the Network Admin, so I get to know all of the nurses pretty well. I will say-if you aren't afraid of computers, it will really move your nursing career along.

Congrats!

I have no idea if he was on Viagra or any other ED medication, but I can tell you he was a prison inmate. Which probably brings the story to a whole other lever that I'm not going to touch...

Yeah, UTMB has a program where they pay for your tuition, books, fees, and give you a 40 hr paycheck but you work 24-32 hrs/week. That's another program I'm trying to get into. If anyone in the Houston area is interested, let me know and I can give you more info.

I happen to currently be in a job where all I do is work with computers...so I hope that will come in handy down the rode as a nurse :thumbsup:
