And judging by the information in this post that you started, you KNOW we are willing to help out.
oh my god I cannot believe you all are giving me this hard of a time. lots of ppl get help and don't get the third degree over one problem
I have been having a debate about this with some people. They swear that its so true, but I just dont believe it. I actually think its kind of silly, an old wives tale at best. Someone even told me that the MD's and RN's tell mothers this before they are discharged, but I have two kids and have NEVER heard of such a thing.
So I wanted to come here and ask some of you experienced nurses about this. Have you ever heard of it and if so is there any validity to it?
I know for a fact that all Connecticut Community College credits transfer within the community colleges, as well as most State 4 year institutions. Also, as far as I know, Capital does NOT offer nursing at night. I know Northwest does, but they start the program in January not September.
Rainbowbrite, if you dont mind me asking, which school did you apply for, and where did you read that they only use classes taken in the past 5 years to calculate the gpa?
CT here too. I had a co-worker cover my shift last night, and still debating on if I can make it today. Yesterday was my first shift I've ever missed and I feel terrible, so I have no idea what I'm going to do tonight. It's still snowing/windy in my town, and I haven't seen a plow on my hill since midnight . Ack, what to do! Hope everyone else is safe!!! :heartbeat
Hello everyone in da facility I work they use bed alarm and it gets da resident attention and yours. So ask about da bed alarm and they have chair alarms too. I hope this help u it do work and always put da bed to lowest position when you have a frequent faller. I feel you but I have learn not to wait on cna to put them to bed when I take them too there room b/c they take so long to put them down. U have to be mindful b/c u can't be everwhere and I know u feel right now that da nite nurse feel that way but u is a good nurse b/c u do feel bad that he felled.
Boy, with all the help you are getting on your homework, you should be done with nursing school in no time.
What was your GPA/A&P1 grade/TEAS score?
I'm trying to determine how much competition there is getting into the community college nursing program. I plan on applying to Capital, specifically, since it's the closest to me.
I'm taking a few classes in the fall & summer, and plan on applying for the RN program later this year. I already have my bachelors degree in biology, but I don't want waste my money if they only choose people with perfect GPAs and TEAS scores.
Yes, Alexander's is a great option. And if you don't have one local, you can order online. Here you go
Alexanders Uniforms Dansko clogs, Barco uniforms, Cherokee uniforms, Koi scrubs, Red Sox scrubs
Wow, I really lucked out! We buy our uniforms from Alexander's Uniforms--we have a local shop here but I think they are online too. I spent $78 and this is what I got: 2 scrub tops, 2 scrub pants, 1 lab coat, and 3 school patches, plus they are sewing them on my coat and tops for free. Also, our name tags were $11, from our bookstore.
I'll probably end up with Danskos for shoes, so that's $100.
And there are little things, like a new watch, new socks, silly things like that.
Also, I'm assuming you will need a stethoscope also. Check out allheart.com for that. Have fun shopping
Oh wait, if this makes up for anything, my first semester books are $1200!
Wow, and I thought my school policy was strict! We also have a no visible tattoo policy, and while all of mine are hidden, I do have a tiny tattoo on my inner left wrist. However, we are totally allowed to wear long sleeves under our uniforms, our lab coat, or a thick banded watch. I bought a watch from Prestige Medical that is water resistant and is made for the medical field which doesn't have a thick band, but a large face, which covers mine perfectly. I do have a tiny wrist, but maybe you can find a watch with a large face.
Also, for what it's worth, I don't think make-up would do the trick due to how much you are going to be washing your hands.
Perhaps they will let you wear a sweatband? I know that sounds grody, but it's worth a shot. Good luck!
Did you try posting in the Georgia state forum? You might get more responses there
I can't say that you are going to get may responses. Why don't you explain your thought process one way or the other and then other experienced nurses can compound upon that Good luck!
This was a topic in another discussion with some really good ideas also
Germ fatigue... - Nursing for Nurses
Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!! I was you a few shorts months ago. I was saying "Whoo hoo I got into absn program!" Now I'm 2 weeks away from being done with the first of four semesters. Enjoy this "honeymoon phase". Nursing school sucks, but I love it. You have worked so hard for it, and don't stop working hard until you graduate!
Remember on exams... two or more answers are right BUT you must select the best answer.
Also, ignore the classmates who...
1. Slack and still ace everything
2. Obsess over getting A's in everything
3. those who cram (not a good idea)
