  2. Second year in an ADN Program, any tips?
    I was studying 3-4 hours every day or more. I was making Bs for most of the semester but ended up with a C+ because my last two tests were in the 70s. I get very nervous during testing; palms sweat,...

  13. Pinning and graduation ceremonies when you didn't pass
    I think it is petty of you to care. Learn to let that stuff go now before you get a job in nursing imho. Didn't nursing school teach you that life isn't always fair?

  16. Why am I doing this?
    Let me reiterate, I understand why. I just don't prefer it. It's not a natural thing for me. Perhaps, in time, it will become more natural. I am in my first semester of nursing school, afterall. :)

  18. Why am I doing this?
    Of course I did research. I read books related to what nurses do and the many areas in which they can branch into (forensic, psychiatric, etc). A book stating what nurses do is very different than...
