  3. Ad on Craiglist for ghostwriter for nursing student
    It's not just nursing students. It's society in general.

  4. YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS
    At our orientation in January, our director explained their grading scale: 80-84.9 C. 85-89.9 B, 90-100 A. She said that statistically, students who score less then 80 overall did much more poorly on...

  5. Grade appeal
    If you didn't pass because you had poor test scores, then no. That's black and white. I'm sorry you had a rough semester, but if you were allowed to appeal your grade then so could everyone else who...

  6. YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS
    I've calculated mine to 0.24 shy of A and our program doesn't round either. It stings!! Lol

  7. NG tube and Ice Chips
    So then since it does not specify intermittent suction in that answer, is it still the incorrect answer? I'm honestly curious, not being a smarty pants. :)

  9. Dreading L&D/Peds
    I know that I would feel exactly as you do if I were in your shoes. No doubt. (((Hugs))) I would try to focus on the babies, not the moms. I know taking care of the moms is part of it, but I would...

  10. Class of 2014
    I graduate next December. The idea is terrifying! I know I still have a ways to go, but I feel like I know nothing. I can't imagine learning enough in two semesters to feel remotely ok with...

  11. Sweating in my scrubs... yuck
    Our school provides us with insurance in case something happens to us at clinical or school. That's all we have to have, and it's part of our tuition I believe. We clip the schools insurance card to...

  13. Checking G-tube placement
    Our school practices pushing air and checking pH. We did get the disclaimer, though, that evidence based practice shows pH is the more reliable test. They only taught us the swoosh (as they call it)...

  17. Good clinical experiences vs. Bad clinical experiences
    Last semester was an amazing clinical experience. Our instructor was very intense, but she pulled us all over the hospital finding things for us to do or watch. We didn't stop moving the entire day....

  18. Would you do nursing school all over again from start to get your degree?
    Honestly, no. If I were weeks from graduating, I would not. I don't understand why you'd have to start over because of your nurses notes though. They should have corrected those from the beginning.

  19. Why does school have to be made to be (seemingly) unneccesarily difficult?
    Your program is not unique. Our first semester was pharm and med surg together and we didn't have a choice. It can be done. It isn't easy. You aren't alone. You have no choice but to find a way to do...

  20. Am I stupid for changing to the LPN program when I am passing the RN program?
    If you fail, can you take LPN while you wait to start your next RN semester and work as an LPN when you get back in? I know at my school, the bridge program is no joke. There are several students...

    How many semesters if your program?? If you're already nearing the end of your third, you must be getting close to being finished. Stick it out!

  22. Why does school have to be made to be (seemingly) unneccesarily difficult?
    You know why you'd fail? Because you refuse to adapt and use your available resources to your advantage. You're stuck on ONLY learning with power points and study guides. Those are fairly recent...

  23. Why does school have to be made to be (seemingly) unneccesarily difficult?
    Our professors give us their power points. We still use our books. Everything on their powerpoints is a verbatim from the book, or a condensed version of a paragraph in the book. The book...

    I've been given a break once in my school scrubs. I think that was more because I honestly didn't realize my mistake (brake light was out) and he was being a nice guy rather than because I was...
