    Thanks! :) Study resources I used included the HESI review, which was included with our school tuition and NCLEX 4000. I also had a Mosby Review book/CD, but I had the most success doing...

  3. Pearson Vue trick 2014 -still works!
    I took NCLEX-RN today and finished with 75 questions. Tons of SATA and prioritizing questions; not a single drug, lab, ABG, I was starting to panic because I thought it was too easy. I got the good...

  4. Job market for graduates of UK nursing schools.
    Glad to be of some help, even if it's not the response you'd hoped for. It has been some time since I went through the immigration process and so much has changed I'm afraid I can't give you much...

  6. Great at care plans, suck at concept maps.
    Thanks for those comments explaining them a bit more in depth. Your descriptions and reasoning make sense to me and just might be what I have needed to hear all along to make it click. We haven't...

  7. Great at care plans, suck at concept maps.
    This is exactly how I feel. My brain doesn't work this way (OCD and anal-retentive very much describes my brain too!) and I'd never do this in real life - it seems like such a mess and I'm spending...

  10. Objective/ Subjective data
    I agree with all of your choices. The itching/scratching one: The patient reporting itchiness would be subjective data. Observing the patient scratching would be objective.

    Yep. I've had awesome Blackboard content, and terrible waste of time Blackboard content. Just kind of depends on what/how much time the instructor is willing to put into it, I suppose. MTA: ...

    Never thought of that, makes sense though! You don't want to go picking up all kinds of other stuff on your coat and bringing it back into the lab. I'm guessing the lab coats are more about putting...

    Interesting that you wear knee length lab coats. Ours are to be hip length and no longer. I've heard stories of docs getting crabby about non-docs in long lab coats!
