    But that is where you are wrong. Go reread the thread and seriously do a search on type 1 diabetes and eating disorders. Nobody is trying to pick on anybody. It is an honest mistake, but saying...

  13. Which was more stressful: nursing school or actually working as a RN?
    Work. Most definitely work. School has always been something I am good at and therefore naturally confident in. I'm a new RN so until I get my nursing confidence built up I'm going to have to vote...

  14. moving across state after graduation?
    You don't have to get licensed in the state you live in. If you know where you want to move you could just apply for licensure in that state in the first place. You can test in Kentucky even if you...

  15. Currently LPN, so can I get into Western Gov Online? Or do I need RN to start?

  18. Critical thinking? How do you define it?
    In my case I feel like the preceptor is attempting to "spoon feed" me things that I wish she would just let me do somethings myself so I can figure it out. I think she thinks I'm incompetent. Things...

  20. Why can't i get a job???? US RN
    I think it depends on where you live? I didn't any problem finding a job. I was shocked. Almost every place I applied called me back. I have read so many posts here about difficulty finding jobs that...
