  2. How long does it take to get used to it?
    How long does it take to get used to 12h shifts and working as a nurse? I just started my first job last week. Worked 3 12's in a row and it about killed me. I'm definitely a wimp. My feet are...

  3. Laptop vs Paper
    I used my laptop for the entirety of nursing school and made all (except 1) A's. I think it helped me stay organized and made it so much easier to study. I used keywords to search multiple sources of...

  5. Help studying for exams for classes
    Test Success was a book that I found helpful at the beginning of nursing school. It helps get you into the nclex testing mindset.

    I didn't think the prereqs were terribly hard. I made all A's in them. Work really hard on vocab and english, that's what get's people in trouble on the entrance exam. Only thing that will help your...

    I agree, they seem to love throwing in non-important information. I had a question with lots of lab and abg info and none of it had anything to do with the answer…. I took it today. :)

    I am finishing up my last semester of nursing school. I homeschool my kids also. I have a 14yo and 11yo twins. The first semester was the worst for me. Semesters aren't all that long, and this is...

    There is no need at all for a cardio stethoscope. I used the lightweight my first year (borrowed from my mom) and she bought me a master classic for Christmas, so I've been using that my second year....

    Stethoscope (the lightweight littmann is more than sufficient and pretty nice, people do just fine). A bp cuff (bought mine on amazon), any old watch with a second hand, pen light are the essentials,...

  13. What if the test answers are not right?
    I would choose "c" on this question. What was the correct answer? ETA: the reason I chose "c" instead of noting time is because it specifically said nursing action "for the client" and airway is a...

    For our class, the first 3 semesters Smyrna and Mcminn folks had to drive to main campus a lot. 2x's per week or more the first while, but this semester (4th) they are doing lab on our home campus....

    I took RODP micro online the summer before nursing school. It was the hardest class ever. I hated it. I had virtual labs, I think I only had to show up for a couple of proctored exams. I would not...

    Honestly, there is nothing you can do to really prepare… The "Test Success" book helps with testing (along with Fundamentals Success and the rest in the series). Be prepared for the amount of time...

    I think there are fantastic teachers and not-so-great teachers in the program. I LOVE that each teacher is responsible for their own content, so we have different teachers throughout the semester. I...

    I have not found this to be the case. I think the cna's and those with experience only have the advantage in clinicals in the first semester. LPN's have an advantage because they are more familiar...
