  2. one semester of chemistry costs $1000?
    Chemistry classes at the university where I live are that expensive. When I found that out, I was determined to take it at a community college. Unfortunately, the university (where I may apply for...

  3. Are there any new grad nursing jobs anywhere?
    North Dakota has jobs. Some of them are in rural areas, but there are also cities with hospitals that don't seem to require years of experience (at least, that's how the postings read).

  5. how old were you when you realized you weren't going to make real money as a nurse
    I work in journalism right now, and if I complete my goal of becoming a nurse, I'd probably be making twice what I do now. (Not to mention more than what I'd ever make if I stayed in this job.) As a...

  6. Accelerated BSN programs that include Anatomy & Physiology in curriculum?
    Louisiana State University includes anatomy and physiology. In fact, most of the time if you take it beforehand, they won't give you credit. They use cadavers and assume that any A&P course you'd...

  7. UND accelerated BSN
    This is a quiet part of the site, so I'm not sure anybody's out there! But I was wondering if anyone has attended or is attending UND's accelerated BSN program? I have a degree in another field, but...

  8. Classroom or Online...Which is Better? Advice Needed
    Even though online courses don't require you to be sitting in a classroom at a specific time, there's still guidance from the instructor and feedback from other students. I've taken some online...

  9. Nursing school & dr visits
    I'm not in nursing school yet, but just volunteering in a hospital has helped me. I used to be kind of nervous just being in a doctor's office, but I'm used to the medical atmosphere now. I had to...

  10. Denied Application to Baptist College of Health Sciences
    I'm sorry to hear that you weren't accepted. It must be very disappointing. :( There are usually a lot more applicants than slots to fill in nursing school, so it's very competitive. So, it's often...

  11. Which nursing school to choose?
    That's a lot of debt to have, especially when it can be avoided. And waiting two years seems a little unnecessary, and disappointing, I'm sure. Since you're young and single, I'd consider looking...

  12. I feel like I'm "cheating" on nursing for asking this...
    I don't think having a biology minor will help much beyond aiding you in getting your prerequisites done. Med school doesn't look down on other majors. Some of my former classmates who were applying...

  13. How do I find a job in a doctor's office? please help!
    The health system where I live has a clinic where some of the specialties are based, including family medicine and ob/gyn. It's on the same campus as the hospital, but they are run much like a...

    Everyone has a right to keep private what they want to keep private. I think you have to weigh your priorities. I'm sure that your co-workers would respect a kind response that you'd like to keep...

  15. What to do about work versus pre-req's?
    I know exactly how you feel. I work full time, also, and have been trying to plan my prereqs. Like you said, I know I have plenty of time, but I want to know that I'll be able to take them at some...

  16. on the fence
    You've gotten so far! If nursing is what you want, then I think you should go for retaking the class (maybe with someone else). I think it'll be good for your kids to see their mom going for...

  17. Report or not?
    As others have said, it's kind of expected that she was irritated by this. People get sick, though, and at least you know for the future that she'd prefer a phone call. It's pretty hard to get people...

    It's hard to pass up a dream job! I agree with most of what everyone else has been saying. Think hard about what this would actually mean for you. At least it would be only three days a week. Is...

  20. Nursing Programs that offer WUE tuition
    It's not looking too good. From what I can tell, a lot of schools require that you be pursuing your first bachelor's degree. I checked UND's site again, and it doesn't really specify though. Some...

    There might be. I used their search tool on their website: WICHE - Student Exchange Programs. Choose BS > health care professions > nursing. It came out with a long list of schools. So, I think there...
