    What great responses , and all so true! Timothy- I really like your answer. I think you are right. Just knowing you don't know and knowing you can find out the answer makes a difference. I am a student graduating in May. I said to my instructor last year that I felt like I was having an out of body experience, that I was playing a "role". She told me if I didn't feel that way at some point she would be concerned! This seems to be roller coaster ride, some days I feel like I will be fine and other days I think I'd better quit before I kill someone!!
    I have been told by many this is all normal and that one day you will realized you are a "nurse"! It is why not everyone can do this.

    Good luck to all!!

    The reason I found this site was looking for info on the HESI. Our school has to pass with a 900 to graduate. I am doing many NCLEX practice questions and am wondering if that is sufficient for passing HESI? I think I will check out the CD someone metioned. I too will take any advice/guidance I can get!! My pinning is May 20th. It is really nice to have a place to find info and VENT!!!!

    thanks mikki

    I have some that were passed on to me that I like- they are called "Mediquick" by Springhouse. We had to do our own, but I got a lot of my info from them. It is more basic.

    Hello-
    I am new to this site and found it looking for information on the HESI test. What I would like to know is, is it similiar to NCLEX. I am doing lots of NCLEX questions but we are required to pass the HESI with a 900. I have enough to do without buying another book and studying that!! Does anyone know the best way to study for it? I seem to be having trouble finding info on it. I graduate in May!!!! and I just have these last few hurdles so any help will be much appreciated.
    This seems like a great site.

    Thanks mikki

    Hello Mary-
    First of all it is never to late to start!! I am 47 and will be graduating Nursing school in May. I started out as a CNA at 40. If you are planning on going to nursing school you are in the right direction. Being a CNA helped me a lot. As for getting certified, be calm. I remember being very stressed but I made out ok. Take lots of blood pressures so you get the practice and practice anything else that you feel you need to to feel more comfortable. Good Luck !!!

    Hello- I am new to this site but I think I may like it! I have a Dell Axim 51v- It was on sale when I got it so I got the better one. I really like it a lot and use it alot. My only complaint is it sometimes takes it a few seconds to "wake up" when I first start it. I am a senior in nursing school and it is great for clinicals. I asked a lot of questions about the programs and ended up getting Nursing Central from UnboundMedicine.com I like it because it has a drug book, labs, Diseases and a med dictionary. The drug book is not as thorough as some but it works well for me. It was around $140.00 for the bundle. Hope this helped and didn't add to your confusion!
