  1. When your the patient, do you tell the nursing staff your a nurse?

  7. What is a good study snack?
    Yes, that was the program. It was so sad. I know those people don't want to live that way. It must be an addiction or medical problem of some sort. It is hard not to judge, because we are...

  9. Are Students Protesting HESI??
    Sorry to hear that. I recently passed the NCLEX. I have to say what helped me most was what I was taught in nursing school. I really can't say Kaplin helped me a great deal. The best thing about...

  12. 1st day as an RN.
    Thanks, that is bad. One thing we have to worry about now though, is anyone can go on the BON website before you do and find out if you passed or failed. Either way the wait was driving me crazy. ...

  14. What is a good study snack?
    I use to buy sixbucks and then one day I realized, why am I paying this much for coffee. I was looking for 5 hour energy but could only find a knock off called 6 hour power. It worked pretty good.

  17. Anyone worried about throwing up or passing out?
    All I know is a girl I went to school with passed out once while doing I think a blood draw. She graduated and is now an RN. There are jobs where you don't necessarily have to work around blood.

  24. Are Students Protesting HESI??
    I didn't have to take it either. I know people who are stuck and can't graduate or take the NCLEX due to HESI. I would be furious. I am curious what my score would be. Does anyone know the...
