    Congrats on the baby :) We are actually TTC and I'm planning to take a semester off if it happens. In my opinion, school and a job will always be there. (Heck, maybe even more jobs the more you wait...

  2. Student feeling hopeless and needing some motivation
    You just had a bad night, everyone makes mistakes. You will land an RN job, and the economy is not likely to stay crappy forever. There have been ups and downs in the economy for decades, and nursing...

  3. Career move to CNA good idea?
    I would say no, CNAs really don't make that much, at least in my area. Most CNAs I know live with parents, husband or someone else sharing the bills.

  5. RN to BSN GPA question...
    It shouldn't, if you go to another school they will give you transfer credit, but they won't figure the prior school's grades into their GPA calculation for your performance at their school.

  7. If you know someone is going to be fired - do you tell?
    No, I wouldn't want to hear about it from a coworker. I would want to hear it from my boss. He'll likely be hurt that other people knew before he did if you tell him.

  8. Blue tooth LM stethoscope ! wow! everything is going blue now
    I don't think you'd really need that in nursing school, you can get a good Littman for $130.

    Nursing school will ALWAYS be there. You can be 30, 40, 50, 60 and go to nursing school. Taking a semester off is not the end of the world. On the other hand, you cannot have a baby at 40 without...

  12. Start nursing school with a newborn at home?
    Congrats :) :) We are TTC now and I'll take my 3rd semester off if I end up being due in Aug. I think nursing school would be an easier time than 12 hour shifts, on the feet all day on a new job....

  20. In need of moral support r/t corrupt past A.E.B misdemeanor charges
    ^ That's another good point, if you were 'a kid' under 18, shouldn't the records be sealed? It may be different in different states, but look into your options.

  21. In need of moral support r/t corrupt past A.E.B misdemeanor charges
    See if you can get it expunged. Look up how many years to get a misdemeanor expunged in your state. If its expunged, you don't have to report it. It'll probably cost you around $500.

  22. Please help, I am so torn!
    I would go the cheapest route -- the MSN will be expensive in the future so you'll want to start w/as little debt as possible. You can also work as an RN while you get your BSN. As someone already...
