  1. Passed NCLEX RN 1ST TRY 265 QUESTIONS!
    First of all, congratulations! You passed and now you're a nurse! There's only two things that I can think of that made you go the full 265. You were either randomly selected to do the full...

  2. Got into nursing school....Should I wait?!?!
    In my opinion, you should not wait to go to nursing school. You're now done with all your prerequisite courses and you'll likely never have that information as fresh in your head as you do now. Also,...

  3. I passed in 254 Questions first try!
    Congratulations! That's quite an accomplishment! I also used the T/F method of answering the SATA. I found that method to be particularly useful. As to doing questions, I also did about 100 questions...

  4. I'm afraid of trying the PVT Trick...
    At this point, your PVT results will be definitive. You can't change the result so do it! The sooner you know, the sooner you can get on with life. Don't prolong the agony because it won't help you...

  5. Do LPNs use stethoscopes?

  6. Should I go to pinning?
    A few years ago, when I got my Bachelors, the department held their own ceremony to individually acknowledge the achievements of each individual student. The formal graduation ceremony (usually held...

  7. Should I go to pinning?
    I went to mine. The cost to us was very minimal because we just had to pay for the graduation garb and our share of the program. We could purchase our own pin separately or we could purchase one with...

  8. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    We shouldn't play the "what if" game. Something that gets lost in all the discussion about "what if" is the fact that laws, rules, and policies are only effective against those people that will...

  9. PearsonVue Trick is all lies. I didn't get a popup and I PASSED!
    I would imagine that errors in the PVT come within the first 24 hours of taking the exam. Remember that the exam is scored twice. The first time is done at the test center and the 2nd is done...

  10. So I Failed the NCLEX-RN
    Look, I can write protocols/standing orders that would address when to do those things. I can also write it in such a way that a CNA, Med Tech, EMT, or even a Paramedic could read it and do it. Being...

  11. Do the CNAs or RNs wipe rear ends
    (to the tune of "Another one bites the dust...") And everybody wipes, everybody wipes, everybody wipes the butt!!!

  12. get kicked off because of med error
    Sorry to hear that this bit you, but med errors do happen and they can be very serious. Sometimes it seems that the instructors are "blowing things out of proportion" when what they're really doing...

  13. What's the best electronic device for Nursing School?
    A group of us used electronics to help us study and take notes during class. A few of us used PC laptops, typically between 13" and 15" and a few of us used iPads. One of my classmates used a 13"...

  14. What's the best electronic device for Nursing School?
    The program I was in allowed us to record lectures, but we had to be able to pause the recording while we were discussing real patients. We were also not allowed to post the recordings anywhere. They...

  15. Beyond depressed.  I failed
    Thanks! I appreciate the sentiment. At this point, given the recent update, and if the OP is still getting the CC page, the outcome looks less than favorable, shall we say. The reason I say this is...

  16. C = Degrees
    That was pretty much how I read the post too. While C's (or the program's minimum grade) will get you a degree, the low GPA that the practice of getting just the minimum to graduate can make...

  17. So I Failed the NCLEX-RN
    boojeboy, since you went about 175 questions into the exam, I suggest that your problem may not be content, but rather your strategy for tackling the exam. In addition to the above, which is...

  18. ACLS as a student?
    While it can be a good thing for a nursing student to do, I'd recommend doing it just before the last semester or in the last semester. You want to have finished Peds and you want to have a good...

  19. You aren't imagining this . . . "RNs Are Delaying Retirement. . . "
    Hopefully it starts earlier than that so she'll be readily hired on. Got my fingers crossed for her!

  20. NCLEX RN to LPN
    Another thing to remember is when you're sitting for the exam, expect to go 265 and 6 hours. It could shut off sooner than that, but plan to go the full distance. When you get a new question, take a...

  23. California NCLEX-RN takers!
    I took the NCLEX on June 18, had my results on June 19. A couple of my classmates took the exam with me and got theirs within 48 hours. A couple others also took it and had to wait about a week......

  24. So is ADN- RN really a waste of time?
    ADN isn't a waste of time. It's just that in some areas, it's a LOT more preferable to get the BSN instead. So... look at your local region and see what they seem to be hiring and go for that. If all...

  25. Bad pop-up doesn't necessarily mean you failed!!!
    How long after you took the exam did you first try the PVT? Was it the only time you tried it? How long after the exam did you do your last PVT? I have my suspicions about this.... that's why I'm...
