New member--New RN student

  1. Dear Allnurses,
    This is my second attempt to get this thread/message going! First of all, God bless us all and continued success in the career that is one of the all time best and THE most rewarding of them all. I have read almost all of the other threads and I have a few questions Please bear with me...
    1. I plan to move to another state upon graduation of my ADN program and was wondering, how does one obtain licensure in more than one state?
    2. My ADN program seems a bit smaller than many that I have seen outlined here and there, should that concern me? Smaller=less classes.
    3. I have just passed Nur101 and Bio226 (A&P 1). I did very well in all areas except the darned quizzes--any others feel that way?
    Thank you all for your consideration, hope to see some feedback soon. Again, God Bless.

    Did you used to be a Rabbi or something? Thank you for the blessing. Amen.

    Dear Mario?
    I don't mean to offend you with my faith, I am a single mother that had three kids by 19 yrs. old. I never graduated 8th grade, because I chose to stay home with my children. I never went to a single GED class yet I passed it on the first try. I excelled in CNA school, and worked my way into a very difficult to get into ADN program. It is only by the grace of GOD that I have accomplished what others said I never could--and I am Catholic, you insensitive person--not a Rabbi. God bless and take care....

    He wasn't being insensitive IMHO. Christians don't have a lock on God, and you weren't being very Christian in your response.

    You deserve a lot of credit for accomplishing what you have done so far. Good luck in nursing school. I'm sure you are going to do very well.

    As you get nearer to graduation just write the board of nursing (nowadays that's easy with the internet). It's only a matter of paying lots of money and you can get our license in any state.

    Thank you for the info, but I am Catholic--not Christian, believe it or not, there is a difference. Why is everyone so touchy here? (Men?) I am beginning to regret this thread thing. I apologize for these "un-Christian like" replies, but leave me alone please, I am very stressed out about the whole Nursing school concept in general!!! Everyone else gets friendly responses--what did I miss? And what is IMHO???? I am afraid to know...

    (As long as you're not whining I'll talk to you.)

    IMHO means "In My Humble Opinion". Take it for what it's worth. An opinion.

    I don't mean to add to your stress and I apologize.

    But you are accusing "everyone of being so touchy here", when only two of us have talked to you. Relax. We don't bite.

    But don't expect to get very friendly responses when you aren't freindly in return. Calling Mario insensitive wasn't a good start. Being stressed doesn't mean you get to be rude.

    That said. I am sorry we got off to a bad start. I sincerely wish you all the best. Nursing school is tough. Damn tough. This bunch is a great bunch for support. Please stick around. You'll find out. We need each other.

    IMNSHO (In my not so humble opinion)

    Hang in there. Come to the student board if you haven't yet (I haven't been there yet this morning).

    And just so you know, religion is probably one of those things left undiscussed til people get to know you a little. NOT that you were out of line with your original post, but it's such a personal thing. When Mario (known for questioning everything, not that that's a bad thing either) questioned your comment, he wasn't being rude. He was just asking. Also some people are just as offended by having "God" shoved in their face as you are by our comments on which religion you espouse. It's a BIIIG world out there, lots of people with different opinions on religion. Be sensitive to their feelings as well. See why I said it's probably best left undiscussed?

    Another thing, humor is really hard to get across on the boards. So sometimes it's easy to think someone's being a butthead when they're really being funny / teasing. So try not to be overly sensitive.

    You've done well for yourself.

    Now, I've forgotten your questions. Back in a minute.

    Okaaay, I'm back. Wow, after rereading your original post I can see why you were offended. Having a "quote" taken out of context (all the in-between stuff removed) certainly changes the entire thing, doesn't it? So anyway, no you did not say anything offensive. Consider the source... I was gonna send you a private message and explain some of the stuff I said last time but you don't have it enabled.

    1. This question was answered previously and I have no knowledge to impart anyway so I'll skip it.
    2. Don't worry about the size or length of your program. So long as you pass the NCLEX at the end and get your degree, how you got there doesn't matter. You can search on this board to find the threads where people have discussed how to find out the pass rates for different schools.
    3. I usually take the first quiz to figure out the teacher's style. After that it's not usually a problem. Again, don't fret. So long as you pass everything with a C or better you'll be fine. Now that you know quizzes are your 'weak spot', try studying a little differently for them. Make flash cards, study the 'outcomes' and 'reviews' at the end of each chapter, make sure you know the key terms. Keep up on your readings in case they throw a pop quiz at you.

    Anything else?

    I really hate to ask, because I don't want to stir up any ill will. But this statement has been bugging me all morning. I even went to my vegetarian site that has a "Christian Vegetarian" message board and asked them.

    But could you, or anyone else kindly explain the difference between a Catholic and a Christian? I won't flame, won't judge, and I'll let it go. But I really want to know. Thanks.

    I'm sorry for being so pissy this AM. That wasn't very welcoming of me. I should have minded my own business. But sometimes I run off at the mouth.
