  3. Tomorrow is my fundamentals final
    Take your time. Go slowly. Read each question thoroughly. After reading the question, pick out the key words it's asking. Then read each answer. Don't select an answer until you've read each one....

  4. Microbiology & A&P Together
    I took Physiology & Micro in the same semester (both were on the same days, too). Definitely do-able if you're strong in science. Just stay organized :)

  8. Should I get my Traditional BSN while I'm in undergrad or aim for an Accelerated program?
    It's one semester. In the grand scheme of things, that time is a drop in the bucket. If you finish your bio degree, you'll have to go through an accelerated BSN (if you get accepted, not a...

  10. About Microbiology
    I loved Micro!! Don't be afraid of it. It's actually quite interesting, especially lab. I loved doing the "unknown" project at the end of the course. We were given a sample of 2 different...

  11. Is This Normal?
    This is "normal" in many OB courses. For you to be able to fully engage in clinicals, you need baseline knowledge up front. I know we had a LOT of information that had to be learned before clinical...

  12. Lcc roll call applying for 2014
    Med Math is NURS 119. However, there are 3 separate NURS 119s, so you'll need the CRN to differentiate Med Math from Clinical Documentation and Study/Test-taking skills.

    I'm purposely doing an ADN and then bridging RN to BSN. It's saving me a lot of money. Our program is highly regarded in our area, so good job opportunities are out there. It's only 5 semesters to do...

  17. Dug myself in an academic hole
    Drop and join the class behind you. Don't risk failing out. It's easier to withdraw and re-take the class than fail out and not be allowed to return. 10 weeks is a very short amount of time in the...

    I'm sorry you've been so stressed. However, that's no excuse for missing clinicals, especially twice. Take the withdrawal to avoid getting a failure and hope they'll let you take a seat in another...
