  3. UMSON Fall 2015
    There are no CNL's at Shady Grove, only Baltimore. From a graduate's perspective, the new program is MUCH better than the old in terms of workload management. I also did the 16 month version so...

  4. UMSON Fall 2015
    Wanted to add that UMSON - Baltimore does NOT have an "official" Facebook group so you WILL have to make your own. And we were/are all very thankful there is no staff on there ;)

  5. Meal planning for day shift (breakfast and lunch)
    Breakfast is really important and it doesn't take that long to cook up some eggs. How far is your commute/what time are you getting up that 15-30 minutes to get in a healthy breakfast seems like too...

  6. Is graduating from a top nursing program worth it?
    Check NCLEX pass rates. Hopkins is almost 10% higher than Towson. I went to University of Maryland and never even considered Towson because of their pass rate.

  7. Help for initial license from MBON
    I think it has something to do with the month or year you were born. One of my classmates expires this year, most expire next year, and only one that I have noticed expires in two years.

  9. MONA or ONAM...for NCLEX?
    Are you talking specifically for MI? If so, think about the purpose of giving each. What is the purpose of oxygen in the case of an MI? Why do we give morphine for an MI? Which action is more...

  10. UMSON Fall 2015
    Try not to compare stats too much. GPA, TEAS, etc. are all only part of the application. People get in with all sorts of scores. UMSON really does look at the whole package. I know CNL's who got in...

  12. “Have you seen the patient in 222 today? I have never seen her smile!”
    Lots of these type of memories. Sometimes it just takes the smallest of acts to make all the different to a patient.

  13. Hesi petition
    Not all material will have been covered when you take the NCLEX either. Passing the NCLEX is a whole lot more important than your final grade too!

  14. Does everyone feel like they bomb nclex after taking it?
    I too wanted to throw up after the test. I about had a heart attack when the computer shut off. Thought it could go either way but in the following 48 hours I had convinced myself I had failed. Turns...

  15. The End of the Tunnel...Holy Cow - is that LIGHT?!  Ch 9
    Described perfectly the feeling of walking out of class/clinical for the last time. It was almost eerie knowing that this was the last time I would walk through these doors as a student.

  19. Random Valuable NCLEX Facts :)
    Thanks for the info about the 48 hour QR including weekends! That's great news! Also, what's this about results being on hold if you finish "too fast?" What's considered too fast?

  20. question about Candidate Performance Report(CPR)
    Per Kaplan, you do NOT have to pass all sections to pass. I also found this on the NCSBN site "The NCLEX is not graded in sections - only overall performance on the exam determines your pass/fail...

  22. Done! Time to graduate.
    Thanks! I don't think it's a Kaplan thing as there is no test we have to take now that we've finished the Live review. It's a Maryland thing. They're just slow. <sigh> More time to study I...

  25. Done! Time to graduate.
    Yup, graduated on Monday but had to spend the rest of the week doing the Kaplan review course which ends tomorrow. If only I didn't sign up for a lot of extra shifts at work. Oh well. Money is nice.
