    I agree with you completely, it did not do much for me when it came down to it. When you did the Nursing Exell, did you study anything before that??? For instance, you did Kaplan in 2009 and then the nsbn...What did u use to study before doing the excell?

    Home care, $60 to open the case, $45 per visit. And it is great because you are on your own time schedule.

    i heard that it all depends on which state you reside in and what facility you work at. plus i think it determines, or im pretty sure it matters if it's union or not. If it's union they must pay the current union wage. Do a search for union wages all 50 states and it will show you current union pay trends for each state.

    i attneded sycamore nurses. honestly, i almost quit after the first day i was so frustrated. i was so overwhelmed by the topic covered in class,math. i just could not get it even if my life depended on it.at that moment, i serioulsy just wanted to quit nursing all together since i had already taken the nclex 3 times. i felt like such a failure. well they allow you to back out if you are not happy on the first day with a refund, so when I told the instructor i had to back out because I was so lost, she probably gave me the most inspirational speech that would change my life forever. she didn't pressure me to stay, but she gave me extra assignments to take home and complete, and if i still didn't get it, it was up to me if i wanted to leave. and i swear, it was like a light bulb went off in my head. the same subjects that gave me such a hard time in school was so clear to me and i got it. needless to say i stayed the entire review and after taking the nclex on my 4th try, i passed. i called mrs gomez directly as soon as i could and shared with her my exciting news. she told me that she always believed in me.i didnt even believe in myself. and to think, i came so close to leaving. im glad i didnt.

    I took the NCLEX 3 times and just passed on my 4th attempt. I had a steady diet of 7 hours of sleep per night, 3 healthy meals per day, exercise, prayer and meditation, and a very effective review school here in Los Angeles. If you are able to clear your thoughts of any past negative experiences to reduce the anxiety, your confidence will sky rocket and that will be key when going into taking your test.

    It is harder. I took the NCLEX for the 4th time after the new exam was implemented a few months ago. And in comparison to the older test, there are a lot more "Choose all that apply" questions on my particular test. But thank goodness I passed. My NCLEX review helped me to change my study habits in how to read each question and use my critical thinking skills. I mean there was a reason why I had to take it 3 times prior and I was a way above average student in school!

    Good luck!

    Anyone who says B should quit now. People's lives are at stake.

    It is very rare to find another occupation where you matter as much to someone's life. A great nurse can make it a lot more tolerable in bad situations. A bad nurse can make an easy one miserable

    Sorry Winnie, but your calculations are a bit off, check again and it would be 110,000/ and your current base salary multiply that by 100. Now see what you get

    A friend of mine took the same steps that you are about to do, because she could not work so she worked her way up through first taking CNA, then and an advanced nursing assistant, now she's currently a LPN working towards my RN.So keep doing what you're doing it will pay off in the long run. GOOD LUCK
