  1. Intensity of adn/absn programs
    I've noticed that most adn programs have many prereq's that cause a considerable wait. Most require micro, a/p 1 and 2, and a few others before you can apply. The problem is that the a/p 1 and 2...

  2. LOST
    First, not knowing your normal ranges is an easy fix. I won't waste your time with telling you how. But do remember that most nurses don't know all of these ranges by heart unless it applies to...

  3. Second Thoughts..???
    I've had some instructors that ran their clinicals paramilitary style. That can be obnoxious, but life changes when you get that one instructor with a gift for explaining. That clinical for me...

  4. Nurse with Disdain
    Sorry you had to deal with that. However, I guess my point still stands. It seems like staff didn't like dealing with the sick needy people. It also seems like you didn't like dealing with extra...

  5. Hospitals illegally firing nurses for refusing flu vaccines
    You are right. It would be wrong to fire someone for being obese (wow...can we say lawsuit for bad terminology). However, if obesity interferes with being able to do the minimum requirements of a...

  6. Nurse with Disdain
    Your post could be seen with a fair amount of irony. Your reason for being sarcastic is due to spending a lot of time (shift from H E L L) with the same people the OP is tired of dealing with. I...

  7. Hospitals illegally firing nurses for refusing flu vaccines
    So, would you expect a nurse manager to hire someone who can't bend over to tie their own shoes and asks for extra breaks to smoke?

  8. I just can't do this anymore...
    I'm sorry to hear that. I hope your life is happier now that you are away from him. I might would have typed the same response had I been in your shoes.

  11. Gay male nurse concern about male patient care
    I think I would handle this like any male rejected by a female patient. I'd respect their wishes and go on. Sexual orientation shouldn't make this a harder question than it is. If a female nurse...

  12. Drug Calculations - not sure what formula to use.
    Although I'm an advocate for formulas, I am writing this in case you can't remember one for a test or quiz. Remember that dosages always uses simple math, always. There are no tricks and it can...

  14. Are you an A student. How do you achieve it
    I'm being slightly sarcastic, but only slightly. Go to the right school that gives more A's than other competing schools. Not all nursing schools or instructors are created equal. I have seen...

  15. C's in Nursing
    I hope you aren't worrying too much about this. There will be several rn-bsn bridges that you can do that won't care about a few C's in core nursing classes. Try to make up for them with A's in...

    There are some good tips above. I might add that you need to have a flexible schedule. That was a huge shock to me. There was so much to do and many places to go that my life and work had to be...

  18. Irritated that everyone feels the need to mention they want to help people
    Only the lower middle class would say that anyone goes into nursing for the money (not a criticism, just a fact). The money is a perk and something we all need, but not hardly enough to garner the...

    I'll be blunt. That was the easiest course load you can take and your grades need to reflect that. Study more or get remediation in a hurry b/c your nursing options will become slim to none with...

    Nursing tests are very hard and I think this is probably true for most programs. I have found that some instructors do throw in more bad questions compared to others. I compensate by knowing the...
