  2. DC BON I have a license number but I dont have my results.
    I just took the DC RN on February 4th. DC assigns you a license # after you submit your application to DOH, so it's there before you even take the NCLEX. "agency1prof0licStatus535" means they do...

  3. 1st semster student
    Yep, NCLEX questions until your eyesballs fall out. The "Success" Series (Pharm Success, Med-Surg Success), was a big help. You can't start stuff early enough. And don't ask for extensions...the...

  4. Failing med surg nothing working
    I really liked "Med-Surg Success." I swore by that book, and did the whole thing cover to cover. It was a huge part of why I did well in that class. As I remember, there were 100+ questions for each...

  7. Is your undergrad program considered when looking at GPA?
    Thanks all! I probably saw 2-3 threads throwing around some high numbers and that was all I needed to indulge in some serious confirmation bias. I really appreciate the responses and the time!

  8. Is your undergrad program considered when looking at GPA?
    Hi all, I'm starting to get my ducks in a row to apply in the next year or two, assuming I go the NP route (I am really interested in clinical bioethics, but not sure that is a realistic career). ...

  12. Turns out, I'm an idiot. Rotten clinical
    Oh, yes, very true-- hope my over-the-top rant about it didn't offend! I think the frustration comes from busting my butt in the classroom, and getting accolades for it in a very academic-focused...
