  2. ICU to OR
    With everything else equal, one year ICU experience should definitely help you get into the OR. It just depends on who you are up against and what kind of applicants the OR is looking for. I had 1.5...

  6. Where can I find Greys Anatomy scrubs with decent Prices and shipping?
    One word: EBAY. Great place for deals, but you must work for it-- be on there as the bidding closes to be the highest bidder. They have great customer service too.

  7. Hesi
    I got around the same score as you on my med/surg hesi. For exit hesi, I just used a NCLEX review book. Nailed the hesi easily.

  8. Is it hard, time consuming, or both?
    It is both, and I graduated magna cum laude. The hard part was learning how to answer those NCLEX-style questions. I didn't fully get it until the end. (I should have bought an NCLEX review book my...

  11. Anyone have any experience good or bad with international textbooks?

  13. Seriously, difference between HESI and NCLEX?
    In my experience, no. The questions are very similar. I felt that taking the exit HESI twice (program requirement) really prepared me for NCLEX. Compared to test questions in, let's say med/surg,...

    I barely had to pay for any books during NS. Reason: I sold ALL my books that are current editions because those are top money and I would basically recoup the cost of the book. I then repurchased...

  20. Refusing the Influenza Vaccine
    Is the search function broken? This has been discussed ad nauseam. To sum it up, you have the right to refuse the vaccine, they have the right to refuse admission.
