  1. CSN RN Fall 2014
    189 and 223 are the only classes that matter for GPA. 224 and 251 matter for points and I have seen students that have been accepted without. My advice is to apply once you have all of the...

    You can always dispute the charge on your credit card if they do charge you after you've passed. It's not like you're stiffing Pearson Vue since you didn't get anything out of it (taking an actual...

  4. CSN Spring 2015
    Get yourself used to driving far now. You will have to go to Cheyenne for several classes. Clinicals are also held anywhere in town. I've driven up to 40 miles each way to some sites.

  9. Placement hours- what is better?
    I would definitely do 12's if I could. In semesters 1-3 we did 6-7 hours shifts. Now in 4th semester we do 10-12 hour shifts. I felt like we were always missing out with the short shifts and think...

    Evolve, no. That website has the ebooks (which I do find useful but definitely not required) and student resources (never used). Pearson neighborhood, definitely required but also shareable with...

  12. Just curious..what color is your stethoscope?
    I have a Littman Classic II SE and I love it! It's pink and has my full name and stars engraved on the bell. I don't think color matters when it comes to theft because thieves will steal no matter...

  15. CSN RN Fall 2014
    No problem :) for flash cards I really prefer to make my own with regular old 3x5 notecards. Writing really helps me learn and it's much cheaper that way (I'm a broke student who is old school haha)....
