    I'm glad I never listened to someone like the OP. Going into nursing as a 2nd career is the best decision I've ever made.

    ask yourself: why do you want to be a nurse anaesthetist?
    Everyone that I have heard that wants to be one basically does it for the bug buck$$. Have yet to hear someone express a much more salient reason.

    I was on academic probation my first semester in college due to a 1.8 GPA (I'm not ashamed of talking about that anymore). It was simply due to partying too much and enjoying my new-found independence. That was years ago, and since that semester I made efforts to do better. I ended up aceing my prereqs and being accepted years later into two competitive accelerated BSN programs, one of which I graduated with honors. I know time helped heal the wounds of my academic probation, but in your case you might want to speak to an academic counselor to see how this is best addressed in your admission applications. But as you can see, probation does not end your dream of being a nurse. It did not end mine.

    i guess what's really affecting my nerves is that i still haven't met my preceptor. once i actually meet her, i will either be relieved by her friendliness or terrified if she turns out to be a wtich!
    what makes you think you won't get a male for a preceptor? just sayin' ...

    Quit. Quit now.

    Your manager is an out-of-touch idiot.

    Watch your HCAHPS scores plummet.

    If I were a patient, I would forbid you from waking me up for this nonsense and I would refuse this while I had visitors.

    Geez!

    None of your business? Sounds to me like YOU are the inappropriate one. I guess me walking by your patient's room when you are in the med room and seeing he is about to fall should not be any of my business either? 😒 You are the type of nurse that makes it hard to work in a hospital 😒

    So the other day I happen to glance at the computer screen of the unit secretary (who I have since learned is doing prereqs) as I walked behind her and noticed that she was reading a post on this site.

    What was interesting about this is that at that very moment she was reading one of MY posts from 2012 ... what are the chances? I kept silent. And she will never know that the real PacoUSA was standing right behind her.

    LOL!

    The problem I have found is that some of the much older threads have been closed, so even if relevant I cannot post in it to revive it. In that case, I would start a new thread for new feedback (but should I reference the old thread via a link?). Seems like anything 2009 and before is automatically closed? Not sure if that's true or whether it is AN policy to auto close threads with no new posts in x years due to age.
