  1. Did anybody buy a nursing mannikin to practice skills at home?
    I think there are much cheaper ways to practice. Like on friends and family members. Cath an empty water bottle. Things like that.

  5. Is that hard???
    I don't think there's any one particular difficult part. Nursing school demands a lot of different things from you - some you'll be great at naturally. Some you'll learn along the way. And some you...

  6. Took the money and ran
    That is an expensive and tough lesson to learn. I'm so sorry. I think your only option here is to prove the ATI wrong. Do Hurst, Kaplan, 8,000,000 practice questions. Watch YouTube videos. Do what...

  7. Tough Clinical Professor
    I had two tough professors. One that made me into a better almostnurse, and one that served no purpose other than to make my life hell for 16 weeks. I survived both. The former...I let her push...

  8. Do you think eating in the classroom is rude?
    I support Febrezing all fellow classmates at the classroom door. I'm getting a weird feeling that there's more of a blame shifting thing going on here than a simple pet peeve. The dramatics don't...

  11. Other Side of the "Clinicals" Coin
    The most shocking thing I've taken away from this post is that you've already had students, Krissypoo! Surely there hasn't been a day on the floor when you're the most qualified to teach? In...

  12. A bit concerned about my age beginning nursing school...
    It's funny how we don't realize how young we are until we're older. Youth really is wasted on the young, I guess. I'm 29 and was on the younger end of the spectrum in my cohort. We had a few true...

  13. Do you think eating in the classroom is rude?
    I don't really see how eating in a classroom can be considered rude. You may not like it for personal reasons, but it's not an action directed toward you or inherently offensive (like tuna ;) ) ...

  15. And...Done: allnurses gave me a smack down

  16. Has your clinical instructor helped you or held you back?
    It depends on what you mean by "without supervision." A nurse might not physically be in the room with me when I give meds, but I can't pull anything out of the pixus and anything out of the ordinary...

  17. Has your clinical instructor helped you or held you back?
    I've always had the "do it once with me and go" type of professor, and even then, they'd rather us do a skill with the nurse if they aren't available that miss that opportunity (except with meds.) ...

  21. Is It Possible To Work During Nursing School?
    I worked 3 12s and went to school 3 days a week. Totally exhausting but possible. I never had a weekend off but possible. Rarely saw my kids...but possible. And then, before you know it, you're done!

  23. What to do about a classmate that is a pathological liar?
    I don't think you need to "do" anything about it. Be annoyed. You have every right. But that's about it. I agree with esme - stay out of the way so this person doesn't drag you down with him!...
