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
jboogie617, I'm just going to go ahead and thank you now I'm on day 4 and I can already see the value of your advice!
Thank you and congrats and good luck to you too! I start at RCC tomorrow, and I'm nervous and excited.
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!
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!
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!
So.. I'm currently a psychology student at OSU, but I've recently decided I want to go into nursing (probably for mental health). By changing my major I would have about a year of pre-reqs at either PCC or PSU. My projected GPA would be anywhere from 3.5-3.7 (current OSU gpa is 3.65 and I'm at 80 credits, I am also aware of which courses are evaluated in determining my nursing gpa). I have no volunteer experience in the field, and I'm working toward my first degree. I've been researching how competetive Oregon programs are, and I'm almost deterred. Sounds like an impossible jump given my circumstances -- however I don't want to give up! I would take the OCNE path and apply at PCC, Linfield, OHSU, and various other community colleges. I'm only 19, but I'm wondering if it is worth the risk when acceptance is not guarunteed. I understand the MINIMUM requirements, but my question is this: What are the "real" GPA requirements for the said programs? And how is acceptance actually determined? Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
I looked into it, but at the hospitals here I need my own health insurance, which is a bit out of reach at the moment. I hope to be able to at some point before I graduate.
Thank you for the great advice.
Hi, it's nice of you to share. I hope nursing school goes well for you. I start in late September, and am getting kind of excited. Good luck!
I'm finishing up pre-reqs for the nursing program and one of the classes I have left is Bio 141 (A&P)
I took the class last semester as hyrbrid (half online half in class) and was lost ! So this semester I am taking it fully in class! Could someone PLEASE give me some study tips, help books, words of encouragement or just all around HELP for passing this class and getting thru it without quitting.
