    Hello,

    I have found that a good place to ask military and basic training type questions is Military.com. There's a specific forum for basic military training http://forums.military.com/1/OpenTop...038&f=65919558. I hope you find all the information that you need.

    Cheers,
    Tara

    So next month i'll be starting chemistry 1. I'm terrified at this point! I need to do really well, but I am so nervous!

    Can anyone tell me what the course is about? What will I be doing/learning?
    I've already ordered the Coles Notes for Chemistry, but it wont be here until next week.
    Do you have any tips that I could use for this class? I'll be working my butt off, but any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks!
    I'm currently taking Chem I. Some of the things we are learning or have learned include:

    Chemical Formulas & Composition Stoichiometry
    Chemical Equations & Reaction Stoichiometry
    Inorganic Nomenclature
    Structure of the Atom
    Chemical Periodicity
    Chemical Bonding
    Molecular Structures
    Covalent Bonding Theories
    Gases and Kinetic Molecular Theory
    Liquids and Solids
    Solutions

    I find it helpful to attend every time and take good notes. Ask questions if you need to. Also do all homework that is recommended. That really helps me with the test as my professor structures the test questions similar to the homework. Be sure to attend your lab.

    Hope that helps,
    Tara

    Hi! I am wondering if there's anyone here who will be starting the BSN program at UTMB in Fall 2004. If so, perhaps we can correspond before we get there.

    Thanks,

    I lived in San Antonio a couple years ago. I can't vouch for kirby, but there are many nice locations if you look into the North Central area and even the North East. If you want to know about any specific areas in those locations, feel free to PM me.

    If you want to get a head start at finding out what type of civilian jobs are open overseas, or Germany in your case, the Army Civilian Personnel webpage is a good place to start. There are also details there on how to apply for those jobs and eligibility requirements. Here's a link for you: http://cpol.army.mil/ Just click the search for jobs link on top and fill in the appropriate info! I hope that helps a bit!

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the information Calfax. That's the sort of comparison I was hoping for.

    Tara,

    I'm going to have to agree with Heatherbliss. Flirting with the idea of being a military RN is nice....but you need to be serious b4 even contacting a recruiter. Don't bug 'em if you're not serious.
    Thanks for your concern. I am completely serious about the idea and that's exactly why I contacted a recruiter already...so that I'm completely informed by the time I'm nearing graduation. It does not hurt anyone to get information ahead of time and to be prepared.

    By the way, this thread was intended to compare/contrast the military and civilian nursing, so if anyone has anything to contribute directly along those lines, that is also appreciated. Thanks!

    Do you get called in active duty in war time to service soldiers?
    I believe it would depend on where you are assigned and what the mission is. The idea is to be prepared in the event that you are needed to deploy somewhere in the time of war. If you are not comfortable with the idea of being in hot spot, you may not want to be in the military. The public health service may be more practical for you if you want some of the same benefits as the armed services without the "action". Hope that helps!

    I have a problem . I have been talking to Navy and the Air force for an enlisted position. The problem is they want me to give them an answer, but I just do not know . I want to go to the Air Force, but I have to be away from my children for long. And to top it off I have been accepted into LVN school. Do you have any advice? I was told that my journyman training would be a year with phase I,II, & III. After a year of my life I would have a EMT.

    Hi,

    In response to your post, the best thing may be to sit down with a financial aid advisor at your school to see what other options are there. They should also be able to point you in the direction of some scholarships and how to apply. There are also alternative student loans for students who's resources do not meet their cost of attendance. I know where I will be going to school here in Texas, they try to find enough financial aid for you to take care of tuition/fee/supplies as well as your living expenses. With the package they made for me, I would be able to attend school comfortably w/o working. Good luck!

    I found the NCLEX pass rates for all of the programs in Texas on the Board of Nurse Examiners webpage. Perhaps it's the same in other sites.

    Example Site from Texas: ftp://www.bne.state.tx.us/nclex10.pdf

    Update: Just found the one for Oklahoma also: http://www.youroklahoma.com/nursing/nclexpass1.pdf
