  4. Is taking the CNA exam worth it for me?
    Most places around here require a CNA license to work even if you have tons of clinical experience in school. If you want to work in NJ over winter break, I'd definitely get the CNA.

  5. What is a "passing grade" for your nursing program?
    You have a have a 3.0 to continue without repeating the class you got a "C" in. We don't have +'s or -'s, which can be nice. Grading system is the normal 10 point system with rounding, so an 89.5 is...

    Me! It seems surreal because I just started last fall. I wish I could say it seems time has flown by though. I think not having real breaks is just wearing me down. 5 week break coming after summer...

  12. To Buy or Not to Buy: MyNursingLab
    Bought it but didn't find it helpful. Everyone who used it always got ~66% or so on the practice tests/quizzes because we don't cover entire chapters. For that reason alone I don't think it's very...

  13. EssentiALZ Certification?
    Anyone out there working with dementia patients have this certification? Is it worth it while in school to add to my resume if this is the population I want to work with when I graduate? Thanks!
