  4. Favorite Nursing Class
    It might be a tie between med-surg, OB/peds, and psych. Basically I like everything but nursing management. Lol

  6. Do you think this schedule/routine will work?
    Honestly, this won't work. Don't try to plan and map out every detail of every moment of your life. Even in nursing school. It's not necessary. That said, you can plan all you want but will you...

  7. Should I ditch the pinning ceremony for a possible job?
    I would go to pinning. But I'm sentimental like that haha. If you do call HR about their open house, ask how often they have them.

  8. I don't think I want to be a nurse anymore
    While I don't think nursing is for everyone, it's entirely possible to just have a bad semester! You don't have to give up. In the end you have to do what you feel is right for you in this. But if it...

  9. Stupid classmate tricks
    Yep. I always feel like they're really asking, "this sounds hard, do I really need to learn it?" Especially when it's the main point of a two hour lecture.

  10. Using "Medical" terms
    Well, we can say "fluid volume deficiency," instead of dehydration. There are ways around using medical diagnoses. On the other hand, isn't "constipation" an actual nursing diagnosis? I don't think...

  12. Stupid classmate tricks
    There's an older woman in our class who feels the need to say "bless you" after every time someone sneezes in class. It sounds polite and nice, until people have sneezing fits during tests in the...

  14. Pinned leg
    Well we all had urged him immediately to go to the ER or doctor. The only reason ice came up from any of us (there were 5 of us not including this man) is because he kept refusing to go. Several of...

  15. Pinned leg
    I realize I forgot to mention that I am actually an LPN. He told them I'm a nurse, later (less than 10 minutes later) mentioned I was finishing my RN. I did say not to ice longer than 20 minutes....

  17. Looking forward to third semester!
    I had one year of LPN, and then one year of LPN-RN. Therefore, my third semester was the beginning of my LPN-RN program. And yes, it was much harder. Much of that was due to changes in my program, an...

  18. How much time do you spend studying outside of nursing classes?
    I study quite a bit. I'm one of the only ones in my class that actually reads most of the chapters we have assigned (at least for med-surg classes). I study throughout the day. I'm out of class and...

  20. Horrible Clinical Instructor!! WHAT SHOULD I DO?
    No employer is going to read your evals from clinicals. That said, I wouldn't say anything about your instructor since the semester is so close to being over. If he/she was really awful your whole...

  21. Nursing pre-req textbooks?
    I didn't keep my A&P books because my med-surg books have chapters on anatomy/physiology as well so I have no need. I still have my microbiology one but only because it's a loose leaf book and I...

  22. NCLEX pass rates down from 2012 to 2013
    I believe they may have changed the NCLEX recently, that might have something to do with it. Sometimes it takes a bit for schools to catch up.

    A classmate of mine has hearing issues. She bought a stethoscope with an amplifier thing on it, so it's a little more expensive than regular Littmann's. I wish I could tell you what brand, etc. it...

    Well what's done is done. All you can do now is focus and work hard on getting a good grade on your next test. I understand how you're feeling, but don't dwell on it or you'll feel worse!

  25. Both CNA and EMT?
    Are you interested in emergency or critical care in nursing? You could do EMT if you are and find out if you like it. CNA is good at preparing for really any kind of basic nursing. If you can truly...
