    Hi! This is my first time posting since being admitted to a 2yr RN program. (:

    I have been reading very good posts here on allnurses about how I can prepare for nursing school Jan 2013.

    What I've found is that many nursing students advised to get a "very good nursing care plan book." However, I never saw any suggestions. What are your recommendations for a good nursing care plan book? What sort of informations should I be looking for in such a book?

    I appreciate and thank you in advance for any suggestions. Have a great day/night!

    Hi. I got the skills lab book, but from the trading and hw assignments we got from the orientation, I do not see any assignments from the skills lab book. So... I don't think there is an assignment from the lab manual.

    Oo yes I was given a littmann se ii by my cousin. I think they're a very good brand of stethoscopes. No engraving on mine ): have you purchased the uniforms yet? Those are the only ones I haven't purchased. I want to see them in person at orientation (:

    Good luck! I am starting a 2yr RN program at local college. Took me 1yr to complete prerequisite and some co requisite classes to prepare me. My school had anatomy and physiology separate. I took anatomy alone in a different semester then took physio and micro together in 1 semester. That was not easy! I say if you think you are capable and can dedicate LOTs of time studying go for it! More power to you! But I recommend taking it slow too because nursing schools are SO competitive nowadays. Better to spend extra semester to get all As on prerequisites then doing mediocre since some nursing schools don't take repeats...

    But the whole point is you know yourself better than anyone!! Good luck yay!

    Omg! I am starting ADN program in January and your post got me nervous thinking I may have made the wrong choice by doing ADN vs BSN. May I ask what school you're in? I am going to be attending ADN school in Southern California. Thanks and good luck!

    I think since the person said come BEFORE ur clinical, I think you'll just get a serious discipline and given another chance. If they wanted u out, I think they would have met u ASAP to expel you. What do you think? It's just my opinion. The situation seems serious, hoping for the best for you.
