    If they told you you can't tape lectures, you realize this pen still is taping the lectures? I am not one for breaking the rules but if you are going to sneak and tape the lectures with a recorder pen (which mind you stands out because it is different and you need a specific notebook) why not just hide your tape recorder and save the money??
    It was tough for me to get used to not taping lectures but it wasn't worth risking getting out of the program IMHO

    I actually did think about that this morning so I didn't order it... I figured I have come to far to screw it up now!

    omg, get that livescribe pen as soon as you can...i just wish i had had one earlier...get the 2gigabit, you need, if your instructors talk as much as mine!! a friend of mine goes to a school where they do not allow taping & she taped with her pen & got all a's...
    I have never heard of this so I looked it up I am ordering one in the morning. I am in my last year of nusing school and they decided this semester we couldn't use our tape players and I need mine. So thanks for the info I will sure be putting it to good use!!

    I live here in Arkansas and this case pertains to Ann Presley, the news anchor that was attacked in her home then later died. I don't know if they randomly check to see who accessed pt records but I have to wonder if she was not a news personality would this be so news worthy?

    I have the same exact stethoscope I have had it a year it took me forever to find it!! I love it but the only thing is I have pen marks on the tubing and I have not found anything to get it off but at least if it comes up missing I can identify it!!

    I felt like a nerd too as I wrestled with rather or not to buy a fancy 3 hole puncher and other random office supplies. I picked up a protracter and worried if I would need it. My husband acted that same way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lol.....he said i would never use a protracter in nursing school...which i probbaly wont. But it was only like 50 cent and it matched my pencil bag..lol

    GET THE 3 HOLE PUNCH!! I had a single hole punch and with all the handouts and the powerpoints we get my hand got sore so I got a 3 hole punch and I don't regret it I only paid $6.00 for it at Wal-mart but I think I would have paid $20.00!!! And if you do need that protractor in NS please let me know!![/quote]

    I use an alcohol pad most of those wipes make the tube sticky. Maybe that would be a good thing to invent cleaning wipes specifically for stethoscopes.... (note to self)

    WOW you still get scantrons? I think my stress level would be knocked down 3 notches if we still had written tests all of our tests are on the computer answer the question and submit you can't go back and revisit any question all I can say is WOW how lucky you are!

    Hi everyone,

    With school getting ready to start up for me at full speed I wander what others do to relax before preparing for a test.

    I have my traditions like getting to school 30 minutes early sitting in one of the empty classrooms with my CD player and I listen to my panpipes CD or the sound of the ocean and kinda meditate as my classmates call it I woo-saw~~ I make sure NOT to talk to anyone who is discussing test stuff I find the more ppl talk the more my mind races and I get stressed . When I sit down at the computer I put my earplugs in and that is where they stay til I push the submit button on my computer :typing.

    So what do you do to "steady" your nerves before a test.

    Do you plan to further your education by going to nursing school? I haven't worked in a hospital but as a nursing student and done clinicals I really think you would learn alot on the med/surg floor. You will see a variety of cases.

    Pretty much means your screwed!! Ok Ok not exactly but you carry the pager or the phone and basically wait for it to ring and that is usually the only time your friends want to go off and do something and you can't b/c your "on-call". I worked for Hospice and we were on call roughly once every two months we got paid $10.00 extra to carry the pager and then regular pay while we were "out" unless you had already wk'd 40 hrs and that was the only thing good if it ran into overtime!!
