  2. Bsn programs are harder than Adn
    I think you can only compare one school to another, not one type of program to another. Brand spanking new BSN programs are popping up all over the country that guarantee entry and job placement. Are...

  3. Touro Univ. Or Roseman
    Yikes, I wouldn't go to either. Both are extremely expensive compared to UNLV/NSC. I know many graduates from UNLV/NSC and they had great experiences both before and after school. Roseman and Touro,...

  6. CSN RN Fall 2014
    Thanks! No, you don't need a lab coat. I would get 2 sets of uniforms though. You will need to go to your clinical site to pick your patient info a day or 2 in advance and it would suck to have to do...

  8. States with no income tax?
    I've lived in NV (almost) my entire life and I have always paid income tax of about 20% for legit jobs. From what I understand income taxes are federal, not state, so you should be paying them no...

  12. How a stethoscope can get stolen?
    I wouldn't keep it around your neck. It can potentially fall off into someplace gross (like a toilet) or a patient can potentially use it as a weapon (worst case scenario but something to keep in...

  15. Psych online or on campus?
    Are you talking about psych nursing or a general psych course? I actually took both online and did well in both (lectures - not clinical :D ). I didn't care for the either topic, so I didn't mind to...

  16. Engraving on stethoscope - yay or nay?
    I'll chime in on this one. I'm not a religious person nor do I believe in god. If I had a nurse that had bible verses engraved on their stethoscope I wouldn't care. I care about competence, not...

  19. What is a "passing grade" for your nursing program?
    I forgot to add that you must score a 95% on math exams (20 questions so only 1 wrong) I order to proceed to clinical each semester. A failing math score = an automatic withdrawal from the course, no...

  20. Insulin
    The U stands for units and you're correct about U100 = 100 units per mL. It doesn't matter what syringe you use as long as it's capable of holding the quantity of insulin ordered. For example if the...

  21. Do you think MacBook 11inch would be good for Nursing School? Or is it too small?

    My program requires a 75% average on exams before points from assignments are added in, but they do round. So if you end up with a 74.4% average on exams you fail even if your assignments were 100%....
