  1. Kaplan Questions!
    I searched everywhere for this, but I can't seem to find it. Any input is appreciated! I've been using Kaplan for studying for the NCLEX-RN. I've done the first 3 question trainers, a diagnostic,...

  2. Why do people belittle others to make themselves feel better?
    Actually, all someone knows at any age above 20 is what THEY PERSONALLY dealt with as a 20 year old. Also fact. ;) You can explain it away and pretend that other contingencies are important, but the...

  3. Why do people belittle others to make themselves feel better?
    I have been in several situations throughout my nursing program where I was informed my stress and effort was not equal to the stress and effort of others due to my age. I find it to be ridiculous to...

  4. Best nursing journals to subscribe too.
    If you ever find a specialty you think could be your niche, I highly recommend subscribing. I get so excited when I get mine, and it really recharges my drive to do well. I like Nursing Made...

  5. Junk in the trunk
    I used to wear Cherokee with the flare/slit leg when I did home health and did a WHOLE lot of squatting/bending. Whatever you do, don't buy anything unisex. Scrubs built for a curve are going to FIT...

  6. Should I regret going ADN over BSN?
    Never regret things, it's not healthy. Simply move forward because you can't change what's already happened. ;) ADNs can get jobs over a BSN if you make yourself a name. In my area, a lot of ADNs...

    Phlebotomy, hands down. I honestly don't think the suggestion to take a semester of Spanish will do you much good. One semester won't have you to any sort of comprehension level when dealing with...

  9. What books do you have on your desk?
    I have a small bookshelf totally loaded with nursing books, but the ones that are on the top shelf and I use the most are: Tabers. Don't ever go anywhere without your Tabers. Davis Drug Guide...

  10. What type of full-time jobs can you work while going to nursing school?
    For a while, I had two part time jobs while in my ADN program. I dropped down to one recently, but I may go back to do in a little while. I also personally know three people who have worked full time...

  11. Digital Recording - Helpful or Time Consuming?
    I started recording lectures this semester and I think I'll continue from here on out. It takes absolutely no effort on my part to record... And the way I do it, it takes no effort to listen, either....

  12. iPhone or iPod touch?
    I've been noticing lately that there are a TON of great nurse-y apps for iPhones/iPads/iPod Touch. There's several I'm interested in, and I'm trying to figure if it's better to go for an iPod touch...

  14. Maybe you feel/felt the same? Worried about 'getting it'
    Nobody remembers all of A&P, I agree. But you'd be surprised how much of it really does stay somewhere in your brain. My best suggestion for you is to connect everything new to something you already...

  15. Joining an Association/Organization as a Student?
    It's my specialty of choice. I'm keeping an open mind about other areas, but I really "clicked" with one in particular. Everything fell into place, I could problem solve easier, I understood...

  17. Maybe you feel/felt the same? Worried about 'getting it'
    I've never heard of an ADN program where you have a semester that does not involve clinicals! How interesting. I highly suggest switching up your studying. If you feel like you just aren't getting...

  21. My classmates dropping like flies???
    Wow, I really must be in a small program! I honestly had no idea it was THAT small. There are only 8 of us left (from 25). Our program always loses at least half by graduation.

  24. How many nursing programs did you apply to before you were accepted to one?
    I applied to the local university and got in, but when I made the decision to do nursing I applied to the CC program and got in. So... I think the answer is I just applied to ONE nursing program.
