  2. PVT?
    Does you're state have online license verification? Some do and they will post your status as soon as 24hrs after your exam. That's better than any unofficial results. Usually free too.

  3. I am a nurse, darn it!
    I've taken both AHA BLS and ARC CPR/AED for the professional rescuer. I couldn't tell a difference. I've worked places where they would accept either.

  5. How hard really is intermediate Care
    I worked in a PCU for a little while, I thought it was a lot less hectic than med-surg. The patients weren't usually that much sicker than the more acute med-surg patients and we only had 3-4 of them...

  7. surgical tech vs. rn
    The math isn't really that hard. It's all basic arithmetic, you just have to pay real close attention. There is no room for error. Although in the real world the math is pretty much done for you...

  8. Medtech College Indianapolis, IN
    DO NOT attend medtech! They have abysmal NCLEX pass rates and a horrible reputation. Their RN program is barely holding on to BON accreditation and I would not be surprised if they lose it.

    Have you been in a classroom in the past 10 years? EVERYONE uses a laptop or iPad / tablet for taking notes. Maybe <5% still take notes on paper. Beside that, most classes require you to have a...

    Hobby Lobby covers 16/20 of the mandated forms of birth control. Of the 4 they don't cover 2 are available OTC for around $50. A woman's method of birth control isn't an employers business, that is...
