  1. UMSL or Maryville? (Saint Louis)
    Which one is cheaper? Is one or both for profit? What are both of their accreditations? You may possibly want to apply to both. Or open up your options to other STL schools.

  2. Fired?

    It could mean that they don't know whether to continue to schedule you with your preceptor or make your own schedule. Don't give up hope! I'm sure you'll be a great nurse. You seem very determined...

  20. PSB test wasn't what I thought it would be. Did I completely flunk it?
    Do you get a second chance to take it? At my school, they used to allow you to take it up to three times, but recently changed it to 2. The best way to get a grade on it is to do as many practice...
