  5. what books are good for Teas study
    Nikki-- Can't address the McGraw, as I haven't seen it or used it. ATI's own Study Guide is an excellent base for the exam--provided, this isn't one's first exposure to A&P, Microbiology, & what's...

  6. Floating but not hire-able
    Seems to me, to be an available warm breathing body (OK--RN, if you like), to float to a unit in need, does not equate to qualification as a permanent member of such a unit. Or, maybe it's just me.

  9. Need help with schedule! Help me!
    Lachell-- In my experience, faced with the choice you pose, I'd say--It hardly matters, at all. Either choice is likely to turn out much the same. But for the substance of things--A&P, properly...

  11. How many of of you are BLS certified?
    IMHO-- BLS/CPR continues to be watered down by AHA. Perhaps simplification is a good thing, for the general public. For nursing students, EMTs of all stripes, YMCA lifeguards . . wouldn't you...

  12. Is taking A& P 1 and general psychology too much?
    Gen Psych--piece of cake, espec. b/c they made me take Developmental Psych. FIRST. (Who can explain this? Not the school. Quien sabe?) A&P, not so much. Still, not bad at all. (But I'd had some...

  14. Academics or work experience...what counts most?
