  2. Sticky situation .. What would you do?
    I would definitely take it to someone higher up if your instructor doesn't add those points to your grade. My program will not change your grade if you marked the Scantron incorrectly, but they will...

  3. I *loved* my ED Rotation
    Wow, I hope I have that aha moment when I feel like I really fit somewhere. You may be able to find a job in the ED as a new grad, especially if you apply to a new grad fellowship (some are called...

  4. Feeling overwhelmed - not getting it
    Did I write this? My first semester I had a huge drop in confidence. I would look at skills and say "How hard can that be?" and then fail at them multiple times before succeeding. By mid semester I...

  5. When you are at clinicals
    The issue here seems to be the instructor. My instructors would be horrified if they found us in the breakroom or lounging at the nurses' station. Plus, I don't understand the mentality of not...

  6. First Fundamentals Test
    I did pretty well in Fundamentals. I found it mostly common sense, and once I learned about NCLEX style questions I was good to go. Keep doing what you're doing and don't overthink it.

  7. Being a slow reader in nursing school
    I have started doing this and it is so helpful. Much quicker than reading word for word, and I'm going over and over what's important.

  10. Just need a vent...
    I'm going into my second year and haven't faced any roadblocks this year (so far), but I just want you to know I feel your pain. First year there were so many issues from books to lab coats to...

  12. Sacrificing church to study instead SMH
    This thread has been silent for a couple of days, but I just want to share my personal experience. After my second semester of college I became so stressed out because I was studying all the time. I...

  13. Commuting to Nursing School?
    I usually clock in at 2 to 3 hours round trip depending on clinical site. Honestly, it is a pain. I do enjoy the time alone to decompress, but I hate that it cuts a huge chunk out of my study time....

  14. Clinical Socks/Stockings Question!
    As long as your socks are all white and your bare skin doesn't show when you sit down, you'll be fine!

  15. FINALLY, The Time has come!
    Don't buy books from the school's bookstore. Buy them used online and save. If you just want new, Amazon will still have them cheaper usually. Many instructors say it is beneficial to get new books...

  16. 1st semester expectations
    Hard. For me, the most difficult things were learning NCLEX style questions, managing assignments, and developing a routine at clinicals. It was not my hardest semester.

  17. Where do we keep our stuff?
    For class and lab a backpack is perfectly fine, if not expected. Class is like a normal college class. For clinical, keep whatever is important on your person. The only thing I keep in the break room...

  19. An Unapologetic Reasoning On Why You Don't Want To Be A Nurse.
    Everyone realizes this doesn't apply to nursing alone, right? Every job has issues. The majority of jobs/careers have poor staffing, poor management, and poor salaries (the "I'm not getting paid what...

  20. Does anyone actually read all the reading assignments?
    I actually seem to do better when I focus on the lectures and don't read the book. I skim and read boxes and tables, but not much more than that. This summer I am reading the book based on last...

    Thanks for the thoughts. If I stop comparing myself to every student who seems to have their entire career planned out, I think I'll be a lot less nervous about not knowing exactly what I want to do...

  24. Advice for Grad, Jobs: Fact or Fiction
    At every clinical, my preceptor asks me what area of nursing I want to be in, and when I say I'm not sure yet because I like too many things I get puh-lenty of advice. Don't specialize too quickly...

  25. Thoughts on tablets
    I would not want to carry around a 7 inch tablet in my scrubs pocket. If your instructor even allows you to have an electronic device (some don't), I'd stick with a smartphone. For studying, though,...
