    She's not good at conveying, but that's why I suggested you bring up the film to her in casual conversation...lol. Prime the pump a little. I had 3 SATA questions, 1 med calculation. Tons of prioritization and endocrinology. It was about the same with the other 2 guys that took it with me. The SATA questions were easier than what I've seen in the NCLEX books, and the questions were pretty much like what we've had at school. The NCLEX though was almost completely 4th semester stuff! I didn't have even 1 maternal/neonate question, and only 1 pediatric and it wasn't even directly a pedi question. Pay attention this semester! You'll do fine!

    Yang, RN (hehe...still pretty)
    Cool, I will do just that, prime her and then pump her..LOL
    Wow that is awsome about your test. I'm hoping I will get one just like it because pedi and ob are my Achilles heel. Hated everything about it and just couldn't my head wrapped around it. I"m thinking that I will need to take a month or so before I take the NCLEX to brush up on that stuff again....with my luck I will probably get 20 questions on that crap..lol.

    Yang, how was the atmosphere at Baylor when you were doing clinical rotations there? I am thinking about applying there.

    We were at Baylor Irving, and had it not been so far away, I'd have jumped at it. I just really wanted something close. Atmosphere wise, I think you have toxic people anywhere, but they definitely had their share of awesome and helpful people too. I'd say go for it!

    Fear not, I will keep you updated. My family will get so sick of hearing it that I'll have to have somewhere to share! lol. Are you looking at Irving, and which department are you interested in? (You may have told me, but I'm hyped up on cold medicine, and too lazy to look back lol).

    Call me crazy but I am thinking of starting off in M/S and then maybe moving on to ICU. The ER may be a little to fast paced for me, it's always hopping lol, but I know it can't be anything less than exciting...that is why I have to live it thru you!!! I am closer to downtown Dallas so I will probably try big Baylor, closer drive.

    M/S is definitely way too non-adrenaline for me. I need the craziness. Are you leery about going straight to ICU? From what I understand, the internships do a really wonderful job of prepping you at most hospitals!

    Yea kinda leery, I had been visualizing the patient just hanging on by a thread and....Oh Boy!!! I was thinking that kind of stress would be just too too much to start with. I just might reconsider after I do some checking around at different hospitals about their internships, the length of time and what it consist of etc.

    Congratulations, Yang, RN!






    Cupid....nothin' wrong with going to M/S first. My friend from school did, and is enjoying it. She does have a thought about going to the ICU later, but wanted the M/S background until she felt more comfortable with everything.

    Well, well, well, how sweet does it sound "RN Yang." I knew you would succeed. Congratulations and I wish you well on your ER endeavors. It must be nice to start your intern as a RN instead of just a GN. I'm hoping to do the same or at least a month after graduation. I know you will be busy but keep in tough with us who are still trying to survive ECC and let us know how things are turning out for you. Again congratulations "Yang, RN"

    Thanks! I'll still be around though - fear not. I'm too much of a mommy to do otherwise. LOL

    yang rn!!!!

    i'm so proud of you! there was no doubt that you were going to do fine :d

    school starts this week......
    i haven't even looked at books, but at orientation they were telling us all the crap we need to buy and it sounded a little off for me. i will get my management book (which supposevely we have to purchase to get the one time use online code) and that is it for now!

    i already have tons of nclex books and i have the hurst review for nclex also, so i feel set and ready to go.

    yang rn, let us know how your first week goes ok?

    ttyl!

    I'm so proud of Yang, RN! I cannot wait to add those letters after my name ...

    I start my new job in the morning. From what I understand, tomorrow is just the HR 'paperwork' day, so it should be fairly low key. We shall see!

    Good luck with school starting this week!!
