    But once again if you will notice who posted that.... a STUDENT nurse....or at least that's the tag....if she truely wants to become a "crusty old bat" she needs to lay off the eating their young line.............................................! !!
    The student who posted that already has a million gajillion on-going threads on this site about her clinical instructor. Not content with all of that drama, she has now decided to hijack a thread that has nothing to do with her.

    That poor instructor has my deepest sympathies.

    Actually, WE hijacked the thread. She made one comment that was pretty much ignored for pages and then someone's back got up.

    Took the NCLEX when you had to pass more than something like I dunno, 24 questions?????
    Like with a PENCIL AND PAPER.....!!!! and you had to KNOW something!!!
    Mine was the 2 day exam..I think maybe 250 questions on morning and afternoon BOTH days!! for total of 1,000 questions...and the computer didn't stop you when it hit 75...and you could only take it twice a year at certain venues in your state!! And it took something like 6 months or so to get the results.......ahhhh, good times....................

    (order me an xtra large-but I don't wear starched underwear anymore)

    hmmm... i'm not quite sure. my great aunt fran (according to family legend) wore heavily starched long sleeved uniforms, white hose, cuban heeled oxfords, and undies and cap with starch. starched within an inch of their lives starch. broke on the rare occasions she sat stiffly starched.

    an old bat? fer sure!

    today, ironed would probably make the cut.
