  1. Does pvt really work????
    It's' called "a trick" because sometimes it indicates pass/fail correctly....and sometimes it doesn't. Answer: it works----and it doesn't. You'll know for certain when you get the official notice.

  2. Stethoscope.. Help choosing one.
    In short, asking which stethoscope is "the best" or which one YOU should buy is alot like asking what are the best shoes, and which to buy (people do that all the time here, too). And the thing...

  4. Diploma or ASN(ADN)
    Diploma nursing schools offer just that: a diploma. It is not a college degree that is awarded at the end, it is a diploma stating that one has completed the requirements of that school of nursing...

  6. What is more exhausting - floor nursing or SAHM?
    Well, if I screwed up and gave my son his bologna sandwich with mayo (instead of dry, as he preferred), he wasn't likely to fill out a Patient Satisfaction Survey declaring me to be incompetent, or...

  7. ADN and LPN - Questions about NCLEX
    And with five years of nursing under your belt, and not having "first time" test anxieties, the second NCLEX was more likely to be easier anyway! :) I'm hoping the OP has a new plan.

  8. ADN and LPN - Questions about NCLEX
    Might also be worth mentioning that failing to pass the NCLEX-RN does not indicate any likelihood of your ability to pass the NCLEX-PN. LPN licensure is not a consolation prize for those who cannot...

  11. what do you say to patients...
    Exactly. AND....you'd have to BELIEVE her/him to BE a nurse, rather than a bored web surfer. Many of us do not. Too many odd references that give him/her away as a fake. Just sayin'.

  12. where is it more difficult to work in; skilled nursing or hospital?
    "Harder"? Can't say, as you can't compare apples and oranges. Some hospitals have better schedules and assignments than others, some floors in the same hospital will have a better schedule or...

  17. Does being able to answer NCLEX style questions reflect success as a future nurse?
    Because it isn't intuitive doesn't mean it can't be learned. The idea of a "born critical thinker" being superior to someone who has studied the steps and has learned to be one isn't sound. Nursing...
