Black Colleges Face Whiteout

White Georgia politicians want to force two historically Black universities to merge with white schools, to reduce "duplicative" costs and end a "legacy of segregation. "When a Georgia Republican goes on a crusade against the vestiges of Jim Crow, it's time to watch out!"

Hey Tony?
Aren't you an Advanced Practice Nurse?
You can write prescriptions,right?
I always thought you were an APN...
No TWC. No nurse can write prescriptions no matter how advanced the degree. They're working on the legislature trying to get them to allow at least Nurse Practioners ( Masters prepared) to write prescriptions but it's an uphill battle. The Doctors are the main foe to this idea. They're not in favor of allowing nurses to write RX'S.

Additionally, NP's are ALL master level. You sure sound less like a "real nurse" by the minute.
Not all Master's prepared nurses are Nurse Practitioners though. Besides,I'm an RNC ( you do know what an RNC is right,lol) as well as a level IV nurse so frankly, I am not impressed by any NP because I guarantee you they don't know sh!t about nursing that I don't. We have a CNNP that anytime she tries to place a CVL or a UAL into an infant, she ends up having to get me to do it for her. Talk about incompetent. But she's a CNNP but I'm way more skilled than she is.

Well Tony, you are wrong there. I can and DO write scripts on any medication except for a C2 scheduled narcotic, I need cosign of an MD for that. Perhaps this is not the case in Georgia but NPs in NJ write scrips. As do PAs.
Personally,I'd rather have an M.D. write my prescriptions. I'm not sure I even trust Nurse Anesthetist's to put me to sleep. It's a level of their training issue with me. When it comes to my health, I want only the best working on me. Frankly I think that nurses can have the tendency to practice beyond their skill level because of over confidence. I remember one of my instructors once instilled in us nursing students that the sign of a good nurse was one that recognized their limitations. I say again,you're no nurse and much less a Nurse Practioner and even less a "CERTIFIED" NP. You may be a Nurse Assistant so you may be vaguely familiar with the medical lingo.

And by the way, if you're not familiar with what a UAL or an CVL is,GOOGLE IT. Most Nursing Assistant's such as yourself probably are unfamiliar with these clinical skills. But truthfully,I'm not knocking you for only being an CNA because here in Georgia, we nurses really do appreciate our Nurse Assistants. They're invaluable to us. All kidding aside though, you should really consider " REALLY " becoming a nurse.

The reason they want the merge is because they want to keep tabs on the black community and control what they are being taught. This is nothing more than another way to keep black people from rising in this country. There is a deep fear of the black nation becoming a great nation. There is a agenda to keep them under thumb at all costs. They see that black people are rising and their children are becoming extremely intelligent in which they have always been and this they deem must be stopped. Once you understand your real and true history and the way the caucasians think and the lengths they have gone through to keep the black nation under thumb then you will understand where all this is coming from and will be strongly opposed to it.
There are many who post real knowledge on this forum and they really aren't given much credit.

In America today, there is opportunity for all. To say everyone starts from the same point would be untrue, but equally as untrue is the claim that a persons race or skin color ultimately determines their success, or failure. A persons character, moral values, work ethic, and determination ultimately decide their destiny.

Well said James, but let us not forget the support system. Without the support from someone who has climbed that same ladder, chances for success is at a higher risk.

Sad. But if I were AA, instead of being outraged at this, I'd be more outraged at the statistics showing numerically there are more African-Americans in Jail/Prison, than enrolled in Higher Education.
No offense is intended by this post, I just want to offer some [rarely said] truth to AA's.

No offense taken, but that is not relevant. The point of the discussion is about the dismantling of HBCU’s, the very schools that are responsible for the creation of the black middle class.

The numbers of AA in prison are alarming, but that is not what interests me. I have a brother who is in and out of jail. He is a high school drop out. He never listened to the advise of those who tried to point him in the right direction. He wanted to hang with the thugs across town, and now he is dealing with the consequences. But, I also have a younger brother who I am transferring to Winstom-Salem State University. I welcome all students of all cultures, but he has chosen this school because of its racial makeup. Why should that be threatened?
