  1. What classes should I take next semester?
    Also check out the professors on ratemyprofessor.com - they can give you an idea of how the professor teaches, what they expect in class, and if they are an "easy A". Not meaning you should take...

  2. Review options to have when STARTING NP school
    Which path are you on? FNP? AGPC? Acute care? I'm FNP and I have the Hollier CD's and have been listening to them as much as possible lately (graduate this semester) and do wish I had gotten them...

  3. Test Banks = Academic Dishonesty???

  4. Stethoscopes
    "The ones where you turn the head" - this just allows you to use the other side of the stethoscope. So those with a bell on one side and diaphragm on the other = listen with the diaphragm then flip...

  5. What career is best for me?
    NP school does have a few semesters of stuff that didn't interest me. Research, policy and procedure, healthcare issues, and, yes, nursing theory. I would have loved more science based courses (maybe...

  6. Soon to be NP. Nervous.
    I've heard the first year is roughest too. I know it was when I graduated and became a RN so I figure NP will be the same. I think it's that I'll have more responsibility and make a lot more calls!!...

  9. NP clinically
    It really just depends. Adult care has a primary care path and an acute care path so it depends on which you want to do. Primary care clinicals are usually done in clinics. As far as evening or...

  10. Soon to be NP. Nervous.
    I knew there were others!! I'm not the most social person unless I'm in the nurse role so I don't small talk with many of my classmates. I'm a few weeks on a new Lexapro prescription from the...

  12. Soon to be NP. Nervous.
    One of my concerns is about over ordering tests or referring for a stupid reason. But, yes, it is better to send them than not and I know experience helps cut down on that!! And one of the...

  13. Soon to be NP. Nervous.
    I graduate in just a few weeks with my FNP. Not sure yet where I'll wind up but I am feeling very nervous about the change in role (RN to NP). I know this is normal and all but just wondering if...

  14. Dakins!
    I have been told the patients need to get it from the pharmacy. We don't carry it in our stock room. Often times the doc sends them home with a bottle. It can also be made with bleach and water (I...

  15. AR Board of Health and allegations
    I believe they can break that down and say exactly what you were positive for (as in if it was a false positive from something else).

  16. How did you guys make the choice to become nurses?
    Oh and before anyone says anything I know NPs don't "play doctor." That's just what my mind thought at 10 years old.... And I also know forensic nursing exists. I'm still considering it lol.

  17. How did you guys make the choice to become nurses?
    I'm not really sure what inspired me to be a nurse. I didn't have a "clouds opening and angels singing" moment. I always loved science class...especially biology and A&P. I thought about marine...

  20. HELP, PRAY, how is everyone doing on practice exams?
    I keep making in that same range also. Set to graduate in December. It's scaring the crap out of me too (and I have a new Lexapro prescription to prove it). I keep trying to remember that 86% or...

  21. New Grad, needing advice regarding work relationships
    Sometimes people also over dramatize things thinking it's funny (just another side of the coin). I would make those remarks to my friends or family (or other coworkers depending on their humor). BUT...
