Would it be really hard to double major in nursing and health care administration?
I like the idea of both. I dont think health care administrators are that in demand and so nursing would be something to fall back on. Plus I am really interested in both!
Insomnia Stress answers:
I did exactly that back in the dark ages when I went to school. *lol*
It’s true that some of the courses you need to earn your BSN degree will also work towards a degree in Healthcare Administration, but you’ll need to take others, such as marketing, accounting, and similiar business core courses either as electives (that would fulfill requirements towards both degrees) or on top of your regular full time course load. I carried 21 semester hours at a time when I did it, and if you concentrate you can do it.
Healthcare Administration programs usually require an internship during your last semester though, so you’ll probably want to graduate from the BSN program first, then, if you can afford it, do that Healthcare Admin internship before you start a nursing job.
Another path would be to concentrate on the BSN degree, taking some electives towards the HCA core courses along the way, and get the BSN degree. After earning your BSN go to work for a hospital or other provider that offers education assistance plans such as tuition reimbursement, then enroll in an accredited online Healthcare Administration program and let your employer pay for it.
I disagree about any lack of demand for Healthcare Administrators! In fact, explosive growth in the $2 Trillion health care industry has led to a global shortage of qualified Healthcare Administrators. Here’s an article that explains that as well as describes what sort of opportunities are available in Healthcare Administration:

Is there family health insurance that covers surgery?
My family is looking for family insurance that covers surgery. But there is too many health insurance places and plans that we don’t understand. If you guys know please provide contact or website please. Thank You!
Insomnia Stress answers:
First, you’re asking for spam links – and none of those will help you.
Second, if anyone already NEEDS the surgery, it’s too late to buy insurance to cover that now. It’s now a “preexisting condition”, and you’ll have to pay for it out of pocket.
Third, to purchase insurance when you’ve got so many choices to look at it makes your head spin, you probably need to talk to a local broker or agent. You can find one at www.iiaba.net . . . They will help you balance coverage and cost to find a plan you can afford. But it still won’t cover preexisting conditions.
Any health and safety precaution for cape town and sun city?
I intend to visit Cape Town ans Sun City, South Africa, with my husband in November. Do we need to be extra careful about health issues? As far as I know, the tap water drinkable, something which saves us from lots of problems as far as fresh vegetables, fruit and ice cubes are concerned, right? It’s also malaria free, right? What about any particular safety precautions?
Personal experience would be appreciated…
Insomnia Stress answers:
The tap water in S.A. Is perfectly drinkable, however, some people prefer the taste and supposed health benefits of bottled water. I usually only drink tap-water, I can’t stand paying R10 for a bottle of water that tastes much the same but supposedly gives me more calcium and has less chemicals in it or whatever.
Similarly, the ice is fine. As for fruit, if it is bought from a super-market it is fine, but be careful and use your discretion if buying from a roadside vendor. I have bought oranges from one and they were fine, but I would never purchase fruit without a skin, owing to hygiene concerns.
You are correct in stating that the areas you are going to are malaria free, so don’t worry about that.
As a woman, I would definitely disagree with Jameel’s statement that Sweetie is blowing things out of proportion. What she has said is not the best advert for S.A., but it is a realistic reflection of the current state of affairs in S.A.
Here are some tips:
-Do not drive through isolated areas or impoverished areas at night. If possible avoid driving at night alone entirely and use a taxi (this can be confused in South Africa with a mini-taxi, so tell him to ask for a Mozzie Cab).
-Do not obviously display expensive jewelry, cameras etc when in public.
-Ask locals which areas are safe and for general advise on safety, and abide by it.
-Do not walk around after dark in any area.
-Do not use public transport (municipal buses, trains or “mini-bus taxis”). If travelling between cities, a private bus service, such as the Greyhound is extremely safe, however, flying is far faster and easier.
-As Dirk has so wryly remarked before, poor people are not animals in a zoo, do not stare at them or go on the so called “township tours.”
-It is safer to use a credit or debit card or a Master Card etc than to carry around large sums of cash.
If you are hiring a car:
-Never hitchhike and never pick up hitchhikers.
-Do not stop if you see a broken down car on the road late at night, even if people are asking for help. This is a common ploy to hijack people. Rather phone a towing service or similar.
-If possible, drive with your brights on at night, to avoid thorns etc that may have fallen into the road. Occasionally, glass or nails are put on the road at night to cause a tire to burst, thus allowing fora hijacking. Once again, this highlights the importance of not driving through unsafe areas at night and also not driving along the freeway at night, as this is targeted, especially when in close proximity to poor areas.
-Do not answer your cellphone if the area you are in seems unsavory.
-Do not spend ages digging through your bag, especially if the area seems unsafe. – Make sure it is organised before you leave your hotel.
-Keep pepper spray on you.
-Do not visit secluded places alone, especially at night.
-Exchange currency at the banks, not hotels or travel-agents, as you will get ripped off.
-Even if it is not hot, apply sunscreen regularly, of at least an SPF 30.
-When swimming in the sea, always abide the lifeguards instructions. Do not swim at night, as they are off duty and the South African waters can go from calm to very rough within a few minutes.
-When at the beach NEVER swim in areas that are not projected by shark-nets.
I hope I helped!
What is the difference between carbs and net carbs? If it shows net carbs, do I just count those?
I am doing low carb and losing a ton of weight and feel great but am confused on the carb and net carb deal. If you could help me understand this I would benefit greatly. Thank you kindly in advance.
Insomnia Stress answers:
Fiber has no calories. It is not digestible by the body and leaves the body in the same form that it is ingested. There is no reason to include fiber carbs in your daily allotment of carbs, only net carbs (if you are counting carbs).
When they calculate nutrients, they first figure protein & fats – EVERYTHING else is considered a carbohydrate. So although sugar & fiber are both considered carbohydrates, there is no comparison between them when it comes to their effect on the human body.
For example -
A cup of ground flax seeds has 49grams Carbohydrates but 46grams are fiber carbs leaving 3grams of net carbs per cup.
A cup is not a serving size – 4 Tablespoons. Would be a large serving but it shows 4Tbs with 8grams carbs with 8grams fiber Ground flax seeds do have carbs but they are neglible in a serving – half a gram in 4 Tbs.
An avocado has 12 grams carbs but 9 grams of fiber carbs this equals 3 net carbs per avocado (12-9=3 net carbs)
1 head of romaine lettuce has 21 grams carbs but 13 grams of fiber carbs this equals 8 net carbs (21-13=8 net carbs)
1 cup of shredded romaine lettuce has 2 grams carbs but 1 gram of fiber carb this equals 1 net carb (2-1=1 net carb)
There is no reason to ever go off a low carb way of eating, you slowly re introduce carbs to your way of eating and as long as you don’t exceed 9grams of carbs an hour (144 carbs a day) you will never trigger insulin (the fat storage hormone) no matter the calories. Most of us do low carb most of the time and occasionally cheat and slip back into low carb the next day. If you gain weight, drop your carbs a few grams til you slide back into loss mode. Who wants to spend their life on semi deprivation? The longer you don’t do carbs, they really kind of lose their appeal. (Tastes like wet dough) I still cheat with sugar occasionally. It’s just not a regular part of my life (as it was preAtkins, nearly 6 years ago, when I felt it controlled me & I had no control)
The rungs to reintroduction of carbs in 5 gram units – all available to very active people in as little as 11 weeks. Make sure you do them in order & you can skip a rung if you do not intend to include it in your permanent way of eating, such as the alcohol rung.:
* (minimum week 3 – maximum 25grams day) Acceptable vegetables, larger quantities
* (minimum week 4 – maximum 30grams day) Add 5grams Fresh cheese
* (minimum week 5 – maximum 35grams day) Add 5grams Nuts and seeds
* (minimum week 6 – maximum 40grams day) Add 5grams Berries
* (minimum week 7 – maximum 45grams day) Alcohol can be added if desired
* (minimum week 8 – maximum 50grams day) Add 5grams Legumes
* (minimum week 9 – maximum 55grams day) Add 5grams Other fruits
* (minimum week10 – maximum 60grams day) Add 5grams Starchy vegetables
* (minimum week11 – maximum 65grams day) Add 5grams Whole grains
If you are continuing to lose or maintain (whichever is goal) in week 12 and beyond, you continue to add 5grams a day per week til you reach your personal carb level.
Many people gain weight on high carb, then switch to low carb to lose weight & then are shocked when they return to high carb that they gain weight. (Isn’t insanity defined as doing the exact same thing, in the exact same way and expecting different results??) Many people can return to moderate carb levels but very few can really eat all they want of sugar and maintain weight or health.
You will lose more body fat eating protein and fat (don’t eat protein alone) than not eating AT ALL. To lose weight fast eat all you want but nothing but meat, eggs, healthy oils, mayo, butter and half an avocado a day (you’ll need added potassium). Keep the calories high and the fat percentage high, at least 65% of calories. Adding in green vegetables & some cheese will continue weight loss but at a slower pace.
Your body won’t release fat stores if you lower calories below what it needs. It will slow your metabolism to compensate and store every spare ounce as fat. If you continue lowering your calories, it will continue lowering that set point, til you can survive off nothing and store fat on anything. The body will only release it’s fat stores if it knows there is plenty of food.
Eating carbs while trying to lose body fat is terribly inefficient. When in glycolysis (burning glucose as fuel) you have to lower your calories (which slows your metabolism) and exercise heavily to deplete your glycogen stores before burning body fat.
The core of the Atkins program is converting your body from glycolysis (burning glucose as fuel) to ketosis (burning fat as fuel). You need to keep your fat levels at >65% of your calories, if you don’t your body will still remain in glycolysis by converting 58% of excess protein into glucose (via gluconeogenesis).
It takes minimum of 3 days to convert your body to ketosis, you will probably feel sluggish the first week but most people feel better than ever thereafter.
