  1. NCLEX RN
    You asked for input, so.....here goes: The number of questions you got (230) has no bearing on whether you passed or failed. It means you were at or near the passing standard for much of that...

  2. New Way to Guess Test Outcome!
    for just a little while there, I naively thought I had finally heard the last of "is this the good popup?!?" and "does this mean I passed?!?" with the obituary of the PVT announced. Sadly, it's...

  3. Smoking
    My first thought is this sounds like a homework assignment? Is it? If it IS, you can give us your thoughts, and we can help you decide how to best work it out for your paper. If it's really just...

  4. Holiday Scheduling - how to make it fair
    Wanting isn't getting. If someone is scheduled to work NYD, they SHOULD have the Eve off, no exceptions. If, however, they have the Eve off....they should expect to be coming in on 1-1-15 :)

  5. What Keeps Nurses Up at Night?
    hmmm....I imagine they'd love it if you decided to stay in bed and have THEM still be there at 11am because you didn't want to come in? ;)

  6. Holiday Scheduling - how to make it fair
    So you mean the "eves" and "day after" AREN'T really holidays, you're just trying to fairly schedule, yes? In that case....see my previous post, LOL, and add in "if you work the day, you don't...

  8. White Coat Ceremony for Nurses
    My class had a pinning ceremony. That's all anyone needs, IMHO. White coats? Anyone and everyone wears those. A friend completing a PA program had a WC ceremony. A friend's kid did a...

  9. Pearson Vue Trick - Website Update (Good pop up still alive)
    I remember it feeling painful; I cleaned my house like a person possessed to pass the time. Hasn't sparkled that way since ;) Now, I think, I'd resort to heavy drinking and Benadryl.Either/ or. ...

  10. Pearson Vue Trick - Website Update (Good pop up still alive)
    Well thought out, well articulated.....and still will be largely ignored in favor of 'BUT DID I PASS????" questions posted over and over (and over....and over) again. Still, thank you for your...

  11. Requiring a BSN degree for an ADN scope of practice
    Just a bit of a clarification is required here, I think: The BSN is not an advanced license, and therefore 'testing up' is clearly not part of the equation. An RN doesn't "pay a university" for a...

  14. My Very Special Snowflake
    Dontcha love it? The red carpet is truly silly, though, IMHO. We didn't have a higher level of service, the VSSs couldn't get anything the rest of the peasants had, EXCEPT we had "special" single...

  15. Holiday Scheduling - how to make it fair
    Ok, that sounds quite involved to me, and still doesn't ensure fairness! Aftter, one could wind up working three Christmases in a row, just because of the luck of the draw? "Luck" doesn't equal...

  16. What Keeps Nurses Up at Night?
    Nothing. Oh, I have situations that concern me, family who doesn't understand a problem with a patient, doctors who won't listen to RN opinions, etc. But I have learned by this point in my career...

  17. Holiday Scheduling - how to make it fair
    When I worked the floors, every staffer was assigned either 'A' or 'B' upon hire. 'A' would work Memorial, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving. 'B' would work New Year's, Indepence Day, and Christmas. Each...

  18. Holiday Scheduling - how to make it fair
    Your holidays seem odd! Only winter holidays...no summer? Meaning no Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day? We had 3 winter and 3 summer, making it simpler....do you already have those...

  19. is there anyone failed nclex-pn with 85 questions only?
    How does it feel to be obsolete already? ;) At the time you took your second test, the PVT was still reasonably accurate. As of 8/23, however, an update to their system shows that the PVT has...

  21. Pearson Vue: Bullies?

  25. Pearson Vue Trick--trick no more
    Which would have to be paid anyway, unless the failed test-taker decides at that point to join the circus instead of pursing nursing?
