  1. burnt out/senioritis
    I don't think you picked the wrong profession! School is really strenuous. When you're working, you actually get days off. No days off in school. If there's a "day off" it's an extra opportunity for...

    I had a similar idea, vintagemother. I've decided it's okay if I get a B or two this semester if it helps to balance out the rest of my life. I've always been one of those students who has to get the...

  8. Hostility
    That doesn't happen in my program, and people would be written up if it did. We did have some students like that during the first semester, but they got weeded out of the program.

  9. Benefits of Clinicals w/ partners vs. without.
    I'd strongly prefer not to have one. I still have to pay the same for the class, and with partners you only get half the experience. No way I'm letting someone take away all my cool skills...

  13. Piggy Back IV order with no fluid order?
    Okay, yes, it was given with a pump. I was confused about this because like you mentioned, giving it without any fluids would mean that the medication just sits there in the line. I wondered if it...

  14. Nursing Student Shoes for Talls?
    Also, these pants are awesome- I bought the regular not the tall, and they're perfect length. If you're 6 feet or taller, the tall would be plenty long enough- I had to send the tall size back and...

  15. Nursing Student Shoes for Talls?
    Birkenstocks! I'm almost six feet and don't like shoes with a heel. These are so comfortable and will help you with leg tiredness and back pain. The footbed cradles your heel and distributes the...
