  1. TEAS 4.0 on computer - can go back?
    Yes, in Teas 4 (and perhaps in Teas 5, I don't know) you can freely move back and forth through the whole test, if you like. But that takes time. In fact, if you are panicked, you could use up all...

  2. In progress MSN... can't stand nursing theory... switching to PA school ASAP

  3. In progress MSN... can't stand nursing theory... switching to PA school ASAP

  6. Yale GEPN Fall 2011
    Maybe you'll have critical mass now -- in one place or another. You'll certainly have it once interviews are announced. Me? I'm in a 2-year RN program at my local community college -- and I'm...

  11. Do I have to take History to be a nurse.

  13. UMASS Medical School GEP (Worcester)???

  14. Yale GEPN Fall 2011
    I agree, KKandes, the key is to keep refining it. Don't think "OK, I'll do 3 drafts." Work on it. Think about it. Work on it a little more. Cut it down a little. Work on it a little more. Do a...

  15. Forget 2nd degree BSN, Go Straight to MSN Nursing? Advice needed
    Each state determines how soon you may sit the NCLEX. Some state's programs let you sit it the summer between your first and second years. I believe all state's board's of nursing list a link for...

  19. Will visiting nursing schools and attending information sessions make a difference?
    If masters is in the picture then you might want to check out Boston College -- there's nothing more accelerated than their 2-year start to finish master's entry. They don't even lock you into that...
