If you were working as a nurse and arrived late "quite a few times" and blew off getting a TB test done or getting some other job requirement completed what do you think would happen?
Dont feel guilty
I pick up enough day and evening shifts to bring me up to full-time. But I don't work nights and I refuse to stay for night shift if someone calls off. I do not feel guilty at all. Staffing is not my problem.
Most medical insurance companies have case managers who often telecommute. They usually start in-house for training then head home to work. You can also check into Workers Comp companies, auto insurance companies, and other companies who require an RN to review medical records.
Its Monday, take a deep breath, breathe out....relax.
Compassionate, organized, accountable.
How do you know you failed by only 2 points? I thought the result was strictly pass/fail.
I highly doubt you can get a recount done.
I sense that english is not your primary language. Perhaps you should brush up on your reading comprehension skills before taking the exam again. You must have a high level of reading comprehension in order to pass the exam.
Many people asked me why on earth I'd leave sunny, warm Florida for chilly Calgary. I simply told them that I was tired of being a nurse without my own health insurance. Most people were quite shocked to hear of a nurse without health insurance. Of course there are far more reasons than that for leaving FL.
I have my provisional license in Alberta and will be writing the CPNRE in May. I'll also be attending the CLPNA conference in Calgary in April. I'm looking forward to it
Its great to be back in Canada
Why was this complaint even passed on to you?? Ridiculous.
What do you mean your ex-husband can't help out because he's having a baby? That is the lamest excuse I've ever heard.
Is this test similar to the HESI? I"m guessing it is. If so, have you been studying from Saunders NCLEX book?
If you can't pass the exit exam at school, how will you pass the NCLEX-PN to get your license?
You're not the only one having a hard time finding a job.
Please read through the Canadian forum.
I hand write notes as well as refer to my text book during lecture. As I'm writing notes I'm jotting down page numbers and important cues in the text. If its a text I plan on keeping I highlight key words in the text. I also use a highlighter on my own notes to keep track of key words as well as things the instructor has stressed during the lecture.
At home I will rewrite my notes using the key words, cues and highlights from the text. I especially review the information the instructor emphasized in class.
To study for exams I review my notes then study Saunders NCLEX questions. I also use flash cards to memorize things like lab values or other data that is not easily memorized.
This is what worked for me in LPN school. I graduated with honors and passed the NCLEX PN the first time.
I'll use this technique in RN school too
