  2. Late in the Game for Screw Up

    I am one of those people who can be reading the words of a book, and thinking about something entirely different..I have to go back and reread because I wasn't "listening"! I have one study...

  4. Late in the Game for Screw Up
    Yep, that's pretty much it in a nutshell. The rub here is that the clinical instructor in charge of the rotation thinks that I manipulated the schedule in order to take the couple of days out of...

  7. your very own personal crusade
    UGH! I hate this too, and it seems to be chronic where I work. I know I am a student and will learn more about how "the real world" works once I am out there, but it still seems to me that this is...

  10. your very own personal crusade
    Paper pants! I love it! Think that's what I'll start calling them. My pet peeve: my coworkers who think that it's okay to put our elderly ladies' hair into little kid hairstyles. We're talking...

  11. Nervous about doing "dirty" work
    Look into getting your CNA before you start nursing school. No better way to find out if you can overcome! At least you'll know before you invest the time, money and work of nsg school. Honestly...

    You didn't mention details, so I don't know if this applies to you or not, but just in case: I had one semester while I was still majoring in computer science that was just a mess for me. I got 2...

  13. New.thrifty ADN student paying for school. Is this to much?

    I like to study at a restaurant..we have Village Inn here (which is like Dennys or IHOP..you're average coffee shop type chain). I especially like to go early in the morning. When I study like...

    We were offered the opportunity to practice on each other, but it's a large class, so only the first couple of volunteers were allowed while the rest of the class watched. Guess what we're doing...

  19. Whats your best nursing ghost story?
    This isn't a ghost story exactly, but it kind of bugs me and is undoubtedly creepy. My grandmother passed away last January. It was a very emotional situation, with a lot of hard feelings on both...

  20. RN's - Can this be true?
    Check with your job services/unemployment office on a program called WIA. What your friend describes sounds a lot like that (though I don't know about the money to live on part). They pay for all...

  25. Nursing Students......what is the one supplie/s that you couldn't have lived without?
    Clickable sharpies! The work like a retractable pen..no lid to keep track of. Got mine at Office Max, but I'm sure they have them everywhere. Mag-lite penlight. I love mine..really bright.
