All of you are so inspirational. I am starting school in August for Practical Nursing, my boyfriend says there is absolutely no way that I can go to school full time, take care of him and my 5 year old and work a full time job. I am 29 years old and I work as an insurance agent. I don't like the industry because there isn't much security and I have to wait too long on the money I earn. I know that being a nurse is what I want to do. I read that in order to reach your goals you need support from your family, boss etc. I don't have much support but I know that if I make it through this, I will have done "the impossible".
Jon Haws, the NRSNG Academy creator and owner, knows his stuff. No question. But you have to consciously shut out his constantly saying "Okay?" at the beginning, middle and/or end of every other sentence. Drove me nuts at first. And YES, the transcripted portions of the lessons are worthless -- it's a straight, uncorrected version of each lecture, and misspellings/grammatical errors abound. But if you listen to and watch his lectures, ignore his speaking mannerisms and focus on what he's actually communicating, you learn tons. Don't read the lectures-- listen to/watch them. And his written materials are great. I'm using his lectures in conjunction with classwork/readings, so I cannot speak to their use as NCLEX preparation. But he does need to clean up the written transcriptions of his lectures, as they are very unprofessional in their current form.
