  1. NICU vs. Peds
    What's your passion? Do you feel strongly towards one or the other? I am interested in both as well, but have found my heart is more in pediatrics than NICU. I like working with a wide ranges of...

  2. is 25-30 too late to want to pursue a nursing degree?
    I started seriously considering nursing school right when I turned 25... And am now 9 weeks from graduating and I just turned 30. And when I started actual nursing school (3 years ago), the average...

  4. Lucile Packard New Grad RN Nurse Residency 2015
    I also applied as well! I believe I put PICU, pedi acute, and NICU in that order. Crossing my finger, even though I know this program is VERY competitive! Good luck to everyone :)

  5. Stethoscope for School
    People in my program that didn't get a Littman regretted it and upgraded the next year. So if you look at it that way, you might as well spend the money now (if that makes sense). I agree you don't...

  6. Stethoscope for School
    Be careful on Amazon! They are not an authorized Littman seller. I bought one off amazon, and it was definitely a fake. Felt much too light versus the real thing. Luckily, Amazon has an awesome...

  7. Questions on my final and I passed!
    My nursing program told us all to get used to not getting A's! A lot of my classmates had at least one test they did poorly on. My lowest score was a 87% so I was pretty excited. But yeah, most of...

  9. Can I still get into nursing school with an F on my transcript?
    The schools I applied to only care about prereq gpa. Overall gpa does not factor into your acceptance to the university. Also, the program I got accepted to is highly rated (7th in the nation) so...

  10. Volunteering and honors program to look better to programs?
    In the programs I was going for, you got extra points for volunteering and even more points for having a job in healthcare. Also, I had a proctored essay to write, and the program I actually got into...

  11. What classes did you pair with A&P I (Anatomy)?
    I took anatomy and physiology, biology with genetics (a requirement to graduate for the nursing program I was going for), and statistics (also a requirement for graduation, but not a prereq)....

  12. is 25-30 too late to want to pursue a nursing degree?
    No! Not too old. I'm 27 and am finishing my first term of nursing school. When I graduate, I'll be 30. I am also pretty much the average age in my program. I think it's technically 29. This is a...

  13. ADN or BSN. Advice.
    I chose to do a BSN program. I just want to get it done all at once, but if I had gotten into an Associate's program and not a BSN, I would've totally done that. I've also talked to older nurses who...

  14. Are clinicals flexible?
    You know, I had the same exact worry this summer. I was about to start my nursing program with no car and I read that some of our clinical sites can be up to 45 min. Drive away! For my school, the...

  16. Finish my Bachelors while waiting for nursing admission?
    And I think with financial aide (I might be wrong), but already having a bachelor degree and applying for financial aide for a second degree only takes you out of the running for grant money. But...

  17. Course load or course overload???
    It's up to you what you think you can do. Nursing school is super competitive; therefore, I think it's better to take your time and get all A's than overload yourself and get mostly B's. In my...

  19. OHSU Nursing Campus Rating
    I believe that the Portland campus is more popular because Portland is a popular place. Everyone wants to live in Portland. They have more applications for only 24 spots, since most spots go to the...

  22. OHSU acceptances/alternates
    The proctored essay is separate. You'll need to find a proctor and you'll email OHSU your proctor's info. I'm sure you can do this on campus at PCC. I did mine at OIT. Then you schedule a date to do...
