  6. First clinical day was a nightmare
    I agree that she was fortunate to have some company for her final hours of her life. I'm a student as well and I would have cried if any of my patients in my first clinical died on me.

  9. Doubting if I have "what it takes" emotionally.
    I'm currently on a Peds rotation and I get so depressed about my patients I go home crying. I see that my instructor and the nurses are able to detach themselves from the situation but I can't even...

  10. First semester of Nursing School almost over and everything has gone wrong.
    I'm sorry to hear about your losses. I know it's no consolation but maybe it's a chance for you to have some personal time to cope with all you've been going through. Best of luck to you.

  15. Help communicating with my nurses.
    I have recently noticed that my classmates get to learn and do many more things in clinicals than I do; even though I've been paired with the same nurses as them on many occasions. This leads me to...

  19. is 25-30 too late to want to pursue a nursing degree?
    I think its about average, of my classmates willing to discuss their age we've found the youngest to be 26. I think it takes a bit of maturity to be a nurse and not many 20 year olds have it yet.

  21. Did I just get thrown under the bus? Or I'm a bad nurse?
    Wow, as a nursing student I kind of thought we could count on the veteran nurses to help us through our freshman year because we do lack experience. Hope this is the exception and not the norm.

  24. Help? What is the difference between a "A.S." and a "A.A.S" in nursing?
    In California AAS usually means that it is a "for profit" school and classes may not transfer to a state 4 year university so check it out first. For example, if you get your RN degree from Kaplan,...

  25. How many must make 80% or better on each exam?
    Our school is 80% average on all tests, so if you do bad on 1 test you can make it up by doing well on the other tests.
