    Thanks for putting up this information. I have been needing to move from my PRACTICAL NURSE point to an REGISTERED NURSE degree for quite some time now. I do not have overmuch extra time to take on more school (not to mention afford it) but I am keeping my eye on related blog sites like this and remaining in touch with welcomed information. Thanks once more 🙂

    How can someone earn an ADN (associates of nursing degree) through distance learning, i.e. online? I have been looking for an answer to this question for awhile. I have an aquaintance who’s friend is earning her nursing degree by doing the book work online and going to a classroom for only the clinical part. Does anyone have info on how to sign up w/ a school that offers this?

    I liked the patient assessment lab at UCSF. It includes a cool web simulator for heart and lung sounds. I learned 30 different murmurs as well as lung sounds.
