    To all starting in Aug, Rest! Relax! Sleep!!! NS has a way of covertly taking over your life...you may miss resting, relaxing, and sleeping.

    I too have experienced the wrath of a clinical instructor. Never did get them figured out, but back to you: I wholeheartedly agree with the first comment; don't let someone who may have any number of reasons to act they way they do affect YOUR plans, and YOUR life! Easy for me to say, but try and tune her out, let her words just roll off of you like a rainy downpour. I take things too much to heart: I'm still crying over getting laid off from a waitressing job four months ago! But this is nursing school, we're tough, and there are thousands who can relate to your pain right now. We're all in this together! We're the class who are going to break the "nurses eat their young" trend! Hang in there

    Thank you and congrats and good luck to you too! I start at RCC tomorrow, and I'm nervous and excited.

    Quote from Iridescent Orchid
    In some of the various Anatomy Discussions topics, some of us have posted stating we don't know how we'll feel until we take that first test! Most of us should have taken it by now this semester...so, how'd you do?!

    I was so nervous for the fact that I could never remember one time I had taken it a test over THREE chapters at one time, not to mention containing Chemistry...I've always been running scared from that messy stuff! All in all, I studied my behind off and pulled off an 85! It was 60 questions, that was nerve-racking and a bit relieving at the same time, meaning I had a tiny bit of breathing room, with it being more questions. I was really aiming for an A, but there's only so much studying you can do...if I went on anymore, I probably would have choked once the test was handed to me. I kept beating myself up, feeling like everyone probably did better than I did, but I heard a lot of talk from people, about how they made a 70 or a few points higher...it seems mean, but it made me feel a little better.

    I hope all of you did well!
    By the way, 85 on an A&P test is a GREAT grade!

    Is moving an option? It sounds like you were really close, I'm sorry you didn't get in.

    Cool! I did get my scrubs; about three days after I heard I was in I am excited too, but a bit intimidated by the very large stack of books on my desk! It's great to hear from a fellow student!

    I would go for the RN because there is more opportunity to continue your education. Other than that I've heard that LPN's have similar job descriptions. I don't know from personal experience, I'm just starting my RN program on the 26Th of this month.

    The only problem is my professor is not good at explaining things, and since it is more difficult to teach myself due to not understanding the material, I was wondering if someone on here could help me understand why this problem is set up the way it is (this one was done in class for us)


    Blueberry fiber cakes contain 51% dietary fiber. If a package with a net weight of 12oz contains six cakes, how many grams of fiber are in each cake?

    12oz x 1lbs x 453.6g x 51g
    ----- ---- ------- ---- --------------- = 28.9g per cake
    6 cakes 16oz 1 lbs 100g

    Thank you for your help!
    This looks hard but it's not so bad; you've probably done canceling before in math. You can cancel the units themselves, so, the ones that appear on the top and the bottom can cancel each other out, so you get 12x1x453.6x51 g. on the top, and 6x16x1x100 cakes on the bottom. 277603.2 g. / 9600 cakes equals 28.9 g./cake
    Reply if you need more help. Good luck! I don't know why but I like these problems

    My school is the same way; only the nursing pre-reqs are considered in your admission consideration GPA. I have incompletes, withdrawals, retakes, Z's( I don't even know what those ARE!) all over my transcript. But I did well in pre-reqs and that's all that matters. Anyway, don't be discouraged! Good luck to you!
