    Yeah!!! I would be excited too!!! I was wondering since you are doing so well in fundamentals do you have any advice on how you got A's on your tests? Just wondering...
    I study study study study study....and then study some more! LOL We get objectives for each unit of study and we also get powerpoints for each lecture/lab so that really helps. After each class, I read/skim whichever chapters are required reading, highlighting in the book(s) the points covered in class. Students who are further ahead than I am have forwarded several files with their notes so I go through those notes with the powerpoints and my notes from class to make sure I have everything I need to study in one set of handouts per unit. I've also typed up some of my own notes. I use different colored highlighters throughout my notes: objectives are yellow, main heading under each objective will be another color, etc. At this point, I've: heard the lecture, read the powerpoints, read the text book(s), and reviewed all of my notes. That gives me a a pretty good understanding of the material. As the exam gets closer, I always answer the practice questions in the back of each chapter. The websites for the textbooks are really helpful, too. I also have a question bank for each chapter for my fundamentals book so I can practice pages and pages of test questions. I review my notes every day. It is a lot of studying but I'd rather do that that be like several of my classmates who are already teetering on the brink of failing the class. Hope that helps!

    My plan was:
    1) Do well in school.
    2) Use whatever free resources I could get at school, online, and from classmates.
    3) Don't freak out about NCLEX.
    4) Take NCLEX ASAP after graduating. I took it 3 weeks after graduation.
    5) Pass in 75 questions.

    My very basic plan worked. I have no idea how many SATA I had nor do I care. IT MEANS NOTHING. There are above the line SATAs and below the line SATAs. You can pass with 20 SATAs and you can pass with NO SATAs.

    My school is part of a hospital system and offers a loan forgiveness program if you work for them after graduation. I graduated in Dec 2014. I'll have $10,000 forgiven in another couple of months and have about $3000 left on student loans. I paid about $3000 in cash as well.

    Did you have to have gone to that specific school in order to be a part of the loan forgiveness program at your hospital?
    The hospital system has 2 schools associated with it; both schools offer loan forgiveness. They have multiple hospitals and doctors offices; most, if not all, graduates are hired before graduation or very so after.

    I guess my boys are lucky in that we paid for their college educations. I'm 50 and went to nursing school a couple of years ago. At one point all 3 of us were in college at the same time. We managed to pay cash for their schooling. Thanks to loan forgiveness, I only owe $3000 for mine.

    I'm a tech/nursing student and am orienting to a new department. One of the long time techs was orienting me to the supply room. She showed me "the supplies the docs use for incubating someone" (intubating) as well as the "post natal bags when we have to take someone to the morgue" (post mortem). There were a few other funnies like that but I forgot to write them down.
