  1. MI Dental Hygienist Turning Nurse...the right decision?
    Well, I'm not a dental hygienist, but my advice to you is this: look into externships while you are going to school. If you can, get a tech position in a hospital. Getting your foot in the door early...

  2. I am sucking at skills :(
    Practice! Take advantage of your clinical time and let the nurse that you're shadowing know that you want to do skills, skills, skills! A lot of my textbooks came with DVDs that show how skills are...

    Yikes. I would say it's your duty to report, however if you don't have any concrete evidence then she could easily deny it. You might set up a meeting with your advisor and ask, theoretically, what...

  5. Is it presumptuous to have your steth engraved RN when you're a student?

  10. Only 9 credits- how can I get full financial aid?
    I would look for an easy 3 credit course online. Maybe a gen ed that you haven't completed yet that won't be too hard.

  12. Nursing school now first come first serve?
    That seems like a bad idea. I wouldn't be surprised if that school's NCLEX pass rates drop.

  13. Summer school class confusion
    Contact SFSU's enrollment office, or nursing program, and ask if the anthropology class at the community college will suffice. It'll ease your mind. :)

  18. How did you celebrate your nursing school acceptance letter?
    I announced it on FB so that I wouldn't have to tell everyone that I know separately. :P Then my boyfriend took me out to lunch, and my dad took me out to dinner. It was a good day.
