Fluconazole 150mg Pills $153.00

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I never studied in my uniform.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I certainly never studied in my cap. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 But hey! I have it right here in the closet! I could wear it around the house!

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 You think I’m kidding, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 don’t you?

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I just realized that the green and gold on the cap match my Notre Dame jammies!

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Not that I would wear those things together.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Or anything.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 When I study I’m sprawled out on the floor with texts and articles and computer and diet Pepsi and notebooks and my headphones on playing ocean sounds to help me focus.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 As much as I love studying, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I’d rather blog!

********************

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 In 1963-64 I was in the first grade. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I loved to read.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 These were my textbooks and I was so proud to “graduate” to the next color in the series!

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I surmised that by the time I made it to college, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I would be reading books that were much more difficult.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 One would hope, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 anyway.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 My suspicions were correct. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 When I began my nursing education, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 the textbooks could have been written in Greek, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 for all I knew. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 The concepts were complex, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Sr. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Roy’s nursing theory could cause semi-permanent strabismus, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 and I discovered that trying to study nursing theory in-between acts at a Day on the Green concert while drinking screwdrivers was not conducive to retention.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 But I managed to absorb the material and I graduated (obviously).

*****

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Then I decide it is time to finally get my BSN.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Three decades had passed since I laid eyes on a nursing textbook.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Oh, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I would read journals of course. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 And take continuing education classes.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I even took a full year of art history, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 two years of piano/music theory, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 a semester of paralegal studies and a semester of literature during that time.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I was challenged in all these areas, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 but I loved it.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Hamlet rocks, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 by the way.

*****

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 So I begin my baccalaureate education in nursing. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Heavy topics. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Theory. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Leadership. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Public health.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Only I find myself wondering if there is something wrong with me, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 because with all due respect to Mickey Mouse, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I have invoked his name on numerous occasions as I try to describe my texts.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I’m in a university. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I’m taking upper division nursing courses.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Yet my textbooks read like they should be entitled “My Little Nursing Story Book”. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Seriously, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 are these things written at the eighth-grade level?

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 In case it isn’t totally apparent, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I am no genius, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 but I’ve read Cherry Ames novels that were more challenging.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Aren’t these texts written for professional nurses? Why are they “speaking” to me like I don’t know the nursing process from a hole in the ground?

****

Then I figured it out.

These texts aren’t for nurses who have returned to school for a higher degree. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 They are written as basic texts to be taught in basic nursing courses to students who are just learning the profession.

This presents a rather interesting conundrum. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 As nurses flock en masse to RN-to-BSN programs, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 there will be a need for nursing texts that are aimed at experienced, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 professional nurses who have a baseline knowledge backed by years (decades!) of experience.

Do these texts exist? I haven’t seen them. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Does anyone even realize there is a need for a tailored, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 advanced approach to those of us who already have “RN” after our names?

*****

Let me give you one example of what I am talking about. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 This is a partial first sentence of an actual text, fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 from the chapter I am now assigned to read. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 The topic is home health.

  • “The purposes of home health services are to provide nursing care to individuals and their families in their homes…”

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 NO!!!!

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 That totally floors me!

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 I thought home health nurses were supposed to play checkers with the patients and let them win.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 And then I can’t figure out why I have trouble taking the rest of the text seriously.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 A basic nursing text is not appropriate for nurses advancing their education.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 So….

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 See Kim. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 See Kim read. Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 Hear Kim sigh.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $153.00 No wonder I’d rather blog.

    Perhaps you will write the text books for those returning nursing students…

    I got a BSN with no nursing experience, and it was lame, tedious, and boring for me too. Don’t worry: The lameness is far-reaching. At least you didn’t have to sit through 16 hours of “alternative medicine” and be tested out on Reikki and Healing Touch methods.

    Sounds like a niche waiting to be filled. Start outlining that textbook and get to writing it yourself!

    What they said. Me, I couldn’t find a decent how-to book on laceknitting a dozen years ago, and after ten years of learning sat down and wrote my own. I know, it couldn’t be a more different topic from nursing, but the point holds: you’re a writer. You see clearly the book that needs to be out there. It’s a pain to do, but someone’s got to do it. (And believe me, the market responds to a niche finally filled!)

    Kim,

    It isn’t just nursing, it’s the “dumbing down” of education because everyone gets accepted to college these days. We wouldn’t want to tell someone they aren’t smart enough to do something,so we let everyone do everything, whether they are qualified or not!

    I think the other comments make a good point, you have the knowledge, maybe this would be the book for you to write!

    Thanks, as always, for a thought-provoking and fun post!

    Kim,
    This is why i refused to go back for the BSN. Not until they have a pill for boredom 🙂 As an RN with a BS in semi-related field, i am actually lucky. Surprisingly many places are just happy to see any four-yer degree!
    Write a textbook! It also looks like you would be pretty good at children’s cat-in-the-hat stlye books. The title got me to read your stuff.

    I love that definition of what a home health nurse does, I had no idea since the title of the position is not self explanitory:)

    Guess you’ll just have to write the texts yourself, Kim. You’d be doing other RNs a favor!

    Okay, here is a dumb question. I’m going to then assume that you don’t need a bachelor’s degree to get a degree in nursing. Yeah, I know, dumb.

    no question is ever dumb in nursing!!!! no, you do not need a bachelor’s first. if u have one first, many of the classes transfer over to the associates degreeand can make that degree go faster so to speak.

    I did the RN to BSN thing and was fortunate enough to have been in a program that targets those with experience. It’s what that university refers to as “life experiences”. But I know what you mean about the Dummying up of things. As an educator I was sked to actually do that once so that someone could get through a class! My response… It is what it is, there is no dummying up in this class! Pass because you know it or fail becuase you don’t.

    I am in nursing school and also have a bachelor’s degree in business (it was the lack of ethics that cooked that one for me!) Anyways, I found that even though it was a business degree, all of the basic courses transferred over (history, english, psych, sociology etc) which made the load easier for an over 30 gal trying to reshape her life! I have also found that because of the bachelor’s, I can “bridge” up to a master’s. In other words, take 3-5 courses of a nursing bachelor’s quality to qualify to take master’s level courses. It doesn’t sound quite right to me, and I’d like to say I don’t see a down side, but there MUST be one…I can’t see how I wouldn’t miss out on something they teach on a bachelor’s level. So your discussions on “dummying” up or down are interesting…and have me wondering! I need to check into this further!
    Also-I’m on the team that says-Write the Text!!! Good luck!

    Kim, I am not sure what to say here. I have been a ADN nurse for 10 years and am back getting my BSN. I know I have the experience of a seasoned nurse but am having trouble writing a theory paper. I do not consider myself dumb. I am an avid reader, am well informed of world events, work at a very prestigious Navy Hospital, yet find that I don’t have a clue about, for instance, all this theory crap. What is my problem? What the hell is a Rubric? OK..there was no such thing 10 years ago. Would appreciate your comments
