  1. Just passed Microbiology with a B
    At my school micro was by far the easiest pre-req. I don't think anyone dropped (but I took it in summer so the semester was only 4 weeks). But my school has A&P I as a pre-req for micro so maybe...

  3. Weeding out?
    I start the nursing program "proper" at my school in Jan. So I can't say what, if any, semester in nursing school is the weed out one. However, my A&P I instructor said that he was the "gate...

  4. Husband rant...kinda long.
    You husband probably doesn't have any idea what you do, I know I didn't. However, he will learn. Give him time to learn it his way. I was in a similar (but worse) situation that your husband....

  6. 9 Pre-reqs, 9 A's - BUT GPA real bad
    Great story, very similar to mine. I have a 20 year old BA degree with a less than stellar GPA. But I did very well on the TEAS and the Critical Thinking Skills test my school makes all nursing...

  7. How Many Schools Did You Apply For?
    I applied to only one, but applied twice. I was denied the first time, probably because I had no grade for A&P I, or II or Micro. I reapplied after taking (and making A's) in these classes and...

  8. Student Nurse
    When I have classes that require application type understanding (as opposed to rote memorization) I find doing practice problems helpful. Study the material until you think you have a good grasp on...

  9. Jobs that you can get while in college that would look good for job resume?
    Each state has different requirements, however, in my state, the state run psych hospitals do not require any training or experience to work as a med tech (CNA type work). I know because my last job...

  12. How would I provide emotional support?
    Exactly! You can't really fake caring (which is why I put "fake it" in quotes) I genuinely care for people, which is why I am going into nursing. But you can roll play being outgoing and "warm and...

  13. How would I provide emotional support?
    Since you are still in HS, I recommend taking drama classes in college or even just participating in drama activity. Drama has really helped me to come out of my shell, and to "fake it" when I don't...

  14. Read this email my NM sent to all the nurses.

  15. I flunked out of clinical today..
    My guess is the reason for the harsh reaction is the "falsification of medical records" accusation. Prior to going to nursing school, I was in hospital HR. Falsifying records was one of the few...

    That is me. I am fairly quite and don't particularly like small talk or low level social interaction. However, my previous career in HR required me to interact with people all across the spectrum...
