    I wanted to use Achieve Test Prep but my monthly payment would have been around $300! That's not including the enrollment fees and testing fees at Excelsior. During months that I am testing, my...

  2. Microbiology Exam
    mochasouter, I studied for A&P for about a month. I did not study every day, though. I think you would be ok if you use StudyGroup 101. I did not even buy the textbook for the course.

  4. Microbiology Exam
    Congrats! I just completed the A&P exam last Thursday. Got an "A" on that one but I've had an A&P class at the college level before, too, so it was really just review. Unfortunately, it was over 5...

  5. Career vs Family vs Economy
    I worked full-time 3-11 2nd shift, and I too have 2 young children (8 and 7, so mine are school age). I HATED it. It's the worst shift ever when you have kids at home, especially once they start...

  6. Best RN jobs to have more time for children/family
    I have the same problem. I'm a LPN, and my first job when I passed my NCLEX was at a LTC facility working 12 hour night shifts (7P-7A). The scheduling wasn't too bad. I worked 2 in a row, then had 3...

  7. 2nd shift vs. 3rd shift

    So how does this work? I know you have to enroll in the college to register for the classes. Just wondering if you have to take more than one at a time to be considered eligible for financial aid? ...

  10. Excelsior College offering online college courses!
    Hmmmm that doesn't show up on mine. Maybe because I'm not actually "enrolled" as a student? I created a log-in so that I could take the first test without enrolling, which Excelsior allows you to do.

    I checked in to Achieve Test Prep a month or so ago. Extremely expensive! The quote they gave me would have been over $200 per month just for their "loan" payment! Plus you still have to pay...

  14. I feel like a FAILURE, what do I do now?
    You can always just tell them that the job wasn't a good fit, without going in to too much detail. You don't want to make yourself incompetent, but you also don't want to run the facility down to the...

  15. Interview with "Inappropriate" Questions
    Well, it's not the fact that she asked me if I have children that has me upset (although it's illegal and should not have been brought up at the interview). It's the fact that she went on to say she...
