  1. NYP Nurse Residency
    I would keep applying. Who knows when the next opening will appear. It's crazy that you went through all of that to end up not being chosen though.

  2. Microbiology....help!!!!
    I will be facing this beast too soon. I know attending class is a huge help. Also making connections with other students to form study groups would help. Good luck!

  3. I. Just. Can't....
    People just don't understand what resuscitation really involves. It's awful that we put our loved ones through this when there is no reason. Then to threaten to sue. What a bunch of ignorant fools.

  4. Not going to give up!
    You need to do a different type of review. What you are doing isn't working. I wish you the best of luck. So many times we just psych ourselves out. When I took it I was unnerved by the whole check...

  9. Pearson Vue: Bullies?
    Well calling PV and yelling at them will get you no where.. They simply fixed a "trick" that wasn't supposed to be there anyway. Pay the $8 or wait it out. Again the wait is NOTHING now compared to...

  10. How to handle rotation shifts
    I would rather work all nights vs rotating shifts. At least your body would get the chance to adapt. That being said some never adapt to the night shift. Good luck to you.. Perhaps switch to nights...

  12. Brown Mackie College - Northern Kentucky
    I went to BMC in a different state. It was intense, but as long as you can force yourself to study you should be fine. I wouldn't say it was easier that college elsewhere, as we had plenty people who...

  14. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    Lose and Loose drive me absolutely insane!! I see it on here everyday. I do think that autocorrect is stealing my spelling powers, as weak as they are. It seems I question myself on the easiest of...

  15. Nursing Perception of Medication Errors
    I want to know how it made you feel. I felt like I let my patient down. Did you report it? If so, why? If not, why not? I did not because it was caught on the next shift. What was the impact...

  18. PVT IS DEAD! Don't try the "new" trick
    This stinks, but as mentioned before its not surprising. They were missing out on lots of $$$. For my PN I paid for those results.. It's hard to wait, but we have it good. Back in the day they had to...
