    littlemango, as was said, CNL's HAVE to take OB and peds over the summer, and lucky for me I had to take both at the same time (2 full days of class plus 2 days of 12 hour clinicals a week. Tons of...

  3. UMSON Spring 2015
    The program is basically all powerpoints, though not everything is in the powerpoints. The only classes I didn't read for were OB and peds over the summer. I've read all the other chapters for all...

    I think (hope) it was just really bad allergies from being in too many houses with smokers in them lately for community health. Temperature is back to normal this morning (was never technically a...

  8. Those who have used Kaplan!
    It's through my school. Maybe I just don't have access yet as I definitely cannot find 5-7. I have 1-4 and 4 is the alternative question one with 3 being on priorities. I have plenty of other...

  9. Those who have used Kaplan!
    Another one who can't find the QBank trainer questions. I have the QBank 1-4 with the alternative format but can't find the 1-7. Does this show up AFTER you take the class? I don't graduate until...

  10. is CNL (clinical nurse leader) a good path for new nurses?
    I will be graduating from a CNL program in December. Looking back, if I had to do it over again, I think I'd still choose the CNL program over the BSN program. Yes, it was more expensive but if I...

    Few days late on this but all that's left is the waiting. You've done all you can do to make admissions see why you'd be a good candidate for the program. PLEASE try to enjoy yourself until decisions...

  14. Things you learned the hard way and will never forget
    Don't work a 12 hour night shift on Saturday when you have two midterms to take on Monday. The second midterm is not pretty if you do.

  15. Kaplan diagnostic score very bad
    My school switched from HESI to Kaplan and I have done horribly on the two exit Kaplans I have taken. I too am terrified about the NCLEX, which I'll take in Dec/Jan, and the Kaplan diagnostic test as...

  16. Did anyone find that their previous degree was harder that nursing school?
    Easier in what way? I'm currently going in to my last semester in an accelerated entry level Master's program. My GPA is much higher than my undergrad GPA. The grading on papers is MUCH easier than...

  21. Spinoff thread-A or pass
    I went in wanting a few A's to buffer my GPA as in my program you have to have a 3.0 at all times or repeat the course you got a "C" in. Not that I'd ever gotten a "C" in a course, but my two...
