  3. Bad preceptorship assignment
    I can only comment on the way that you've presented things and being entitled is the way you've come across. You were given your third choice, which is still one of your top 3. I can see where being...

  4. Bad preceptorship assignment
    I know you're upset and venting, but come on.. why did you put behavioral health down as a choice if you absolutely did not want it? You obviously had to have SOME interest in it. You might even...

  6. Help understanding statistics
    Yep. It was one of those things that I didn't think I'd really use ever again. I kinda wondered why I even needed to take a stats class for nursing to begin with.. well, now I know why! :D

    While this might be true at some schools, it's not true of all nursing schools. My nursing instructors will round grades provided that you've attended classes and actively participated. I do agree...

  12. a couple quick, general questions about care plans
    Since you're not sure, I'd just include any medical diagnoses as "history of COPD" or whatever in your assessment. That should work. Like Aleah_RN said, once you get your first one back you'll have a...

  14. Previous Bachelors degree going into nursing - Should I do BSN or ADN???
    I think it depends on if you have all your prereqs done or not. ADN and BSN programs are pretty much the same length.. but if you've still got to take two semesters of A&P before you can start the...

  15. Can anyone dumb down this Hesi thing for me?
    Evolve should have sent a report link to whatever email address you entered when you took the test. It does a pretty good job of explaining things if you can find it. I just took my HESI today and...

  17. Can't stop thinking about it.
    Maybe I'm missing something, but isn't it a little unusual to only have a low BP in just one arm? Shouldn't your BP be pretty close to the same in both?

  19. A follow-up of my only post; RN to MD.

  21. Students requesting help with HW and interviewing a nurse for HW purposes
    I agree that we students should be putting effort into our work, but asking questions on AN doesn't necessarily mean that we're not. There are 140 students in my cohort that have the exact same...

  22. Students requesting help with HW and interviewing a nurse for HW purposes
    I'm a SN, but haven't had an assignment like this so far. If I do eventually have to interview a RN, I think the big reason why I would prefer to ask someone on AN would be that I don't want to...
