  1. Needlestick Injury d/t careless error. Seriously rethinking if I'm cut out for this.
    Awww, sorry you had such a nerve-wracking experience. However, just look at it this way: I bet you'll NEVER do that again!!! As everyone has stated above, you're human and you're going to make...

  2. Confused
    If your credits aren't transferable to continue to RN, red flag. If the school isn't accredited & charges more than accredited colleges and universities, red flag. If the NCLEX pass rates are poor,...

  4. Is there time for extracurricular activities while in Nursing school?
    Scheduled marital arts classes 4 - 5 days a week might be a bit much, especially in your first semester. Our first 6 weeks of nursing school was so jam packed busy, there was no time for anything...

  5. Hostility
    We had a few students who felt the need to act like "mean girls" our first semester. It got so bad that the faulty felt the need to do a presentation on bullying and lateral intimidation during...

  7. If someone is caught plagiarizing, should they be failed on the spot or get a zero
    Plagiarism is grounds for dismissal in our program. It states this in our handbook and the syllabus.

  8. Major Issue...
    I completely agree with this. I found it much better to have similar classes at the same time. Chemistry is so math intensive, it would go well with Stats. I had Physiology (A&P2) and Microbiology...

    This is SOOOOO me right now! I'm completely burned out on school. The light is at the end of the tunnel (will be done in May!) but it still seems so far away right now. Can't wait to be DONE! In...

  10. Microbiology : Lesser Evil
    Taking A&P 2 with Micro is way easier than trying to do Micro during Nursing school. I took 17 credits in one semester before applying to nursing school and still ended up with a 4.0 in all. It's...

  11. Cheaters Suck
    I don't know, I have a completely different take on the situation. The prof said absolutely no cell phones out. This person had theirs out. While you don't know for sure if they were using it,...

  12. Nurse anesthetist or Anesthesiologist
    Also keep in mind that you'll need to take 1 to 2 semesters of Calculus if you're opting for med school (depending on the degree you pursue). While it may seem "shorter" to finish a B.S. and apply...

  14. 4.0 in nursing school?
    I'm a "grade perfectionist", but I've learned to accept the fact that an A-/B+ (3.5) is still OK :) The most important thing is that you understand the material and can APPLY it to the real world. I...

  15. Do you think nursing programs can benefit from more rigorous prerequisites?
    Considering many of our pre-req courses have pre-reqs themselves (e.g. Biology before Anatomy or Micro), I think our program has just the right amount. The only course I would say that should be...

  16. Feeling Discouraged Already
    Our sim lab is video/audio taped. We're not given any info until we walk in the room. They always give us a scenario that we haven't yet experienced or studied. It's the best way to get practice. Sim...

  17. Benefits of Clinicals w/ partners vs. without.
    Having done both in clinicals, I personally prefer flying solo rather than being paired up. I am a fast thinker and I'm super-organized, so I'm always done before everyone else. When I'm tethered to...

  18. ADN to BSN bridge programs with LCC
    Another plus about the MSU RN-to-BSN: it's designed so you can work full-time as an RN while completing the BSN :up:

  19. What is supposed to be the hardest year?
    It depends on your program and how it's structured. I would have to say, so far, that our very first semester was the hardest. Learning to "think like a nurse", getting used to NCLEX-style exam...

  23. I *loved* my ED Rotation
    I was required to do observation in the Peds ED this weekend. It was supposed to be a 4 hour observation only, just to gather data to write a paper. Well, several staff members were sick and the...

  24. mature student
    Absolutely not too old! I'm 45 and will be done with my RN this May! I'll continue with the BSN, so I'll be nearly 47 when I'm done. And I'm not the oldest person in class. Go for it!!!!

  25. Labor & Delivery
    We did, however, have an OB rotation in our clinicals. That gives you some exposure. As stated above, you'd have to get a few certifications to be able to do Maternity/OB
