    None of this has been my fault. Life circumstances.
    Ummmm, yea it IS your fault. You need to own it. You chose to not give 2 weeks notice not once but twice. Employers don't care about what's going on with your "life circumstances" -- they want employees they can trust to show up and do their job. Your track record shows otherwise. Life circumstances happen to all of us -- deaths, births, relationship issues, car trouble, etc etc etc -- but we still show up to work every day.

    Not being mean, just being honest.

    If you had 75 Qs & the machine shut off on you, you passed. I did this too - 75 Qs in 75 min. I cried for days. After I found out I passed it occurred to me - you must have 80% to pass at any given time --- if you got most of your 75 qs wrong --- you'd be going a lot longer!!!
    Not true. You can fail with 75 questions.

    My ASN school graduates approx 100-120 new RNs a year and most of them have jobs lined up before graduation. The Dec 2012 graduating class all passed NCLEX the first time (which is typical for the school) and all have jobs already. It really helps that my school is hospital-affiliated so, even though it's "only" an ASN, we're the grads the system wants and we get priority over all other schools --including the 2 BSN schools in the area.

    What's it like being able to work whenever you want? I cannot wait to be a nurse. Working three days a week sounds like heaven. Although, knowing me, I'd most likely do tons of over time anyway lol. What do you like to do on your off days?
    We don't necessarily work "whenever we want". Yes, I get to submit my own schedule BUT that doesn't mean it won't get switched around depending on the unit's needs. I'm required to work 6 weekend shifts every 6 weeks. I'm required to work 24 hours of call every 6 weeks. I work 12 hour night shifts, which means I'm sleeping in the afternoon before my first shift, trying to sleep during the day in between shifts, and trying to make up for missed sleep the day after my last shift for the week. Not exactly heavenly but I love my job (I'm an LDRP RN) and my co-workers so I don't mind.

    Patient: I'm pregnant and I think I'm miscarrying!
    RN: How far along are you? (as she collects urine sample)
    Patient: 3-4 weeks. I haven't been tested yet but I know my body.
    RN: When was your last period?
    Patient: the 7th.
    RN: So...a month ago? (reads results from UPT -- negative). You're not pregnant. You're having your period.
    Patient's male companion: I'm outta here, *****!

    Patient brought by EMS for severe lower abdominal cramping.
    Patient: I started cramping and it felt like contractions so I got worried.
    RN: Any chance you're pregnant?
    Patient: No, I haven't had sex for 10 years. I just need something for menstrual cramps.
