Accelerated Nursing Programs are a great solution if you already have a Bachelor Degree in something other than nursing, but wish to become a registered nurse. I went through an accelerated BSN program years ago when I changed my major late in college and decided to pursue nursing. In this video I go over what an Accelerated BSN program is, what the prerequisites are, how to succeed in one, and what you can expect once in the program. I’ll share my work experience, and how to have balance between life and school while in nursing school.
If you’ve been to a Doctors office lately, I’m sure you noticed that you were spending quite a long time sitting in the waiting room and even the exam room, before you got your 10 minutes with the provider. Primary care wait times, whether it is in a family practice or specialty clinic have been increasing in the last few years, adding frustration to patients and providers alike. If you’ve ever wondered WHY the wait is getting so out of hand, this video is a demonstration of just how quickly appointment times can be delayed. We will follow Ella and Mr Pilot through their appointments with a Nurse Practitioner, in order to see in real time, what is going on in primary care offices, causing them to become so behind.
Do you need some tips on how to study in Nursing and NP School? One tool I LOVE using for studying was Picmonic, follow this link http://bit.ly/nurse_liz to check out Picmonic for free or sign up for a subscription for full access to the website! Nurinsg School and Nurse Practitioner school requires a ton of knowledge retention, therefore you need to study quite frequently! If you aren’t studying effectively, you won’t be able to learn the material and apply it to your practice, but you will also waste a ton of time that could be spent hanging out doing things you actually want to do! This video will go over some apps that I have loved to used while studying, some studying strategies, and some creative ways that I have found made studying in Nurse Practitioner and Nursing school easier. Happy Studying!
