  1. Education of nurses
    I don't think an ADN says anything about a person. Afterall, I just finished my ADN, however I also hold a BS in biology/animal science. I have had statistics and probably more science than any BSN...

  8. what do i do about a clinical instructor who embarrassed  me in front of others?
    I agree with hiddencat. Sometimes you have to show them that you aren't going to let them get to you. Chances are the other instructors don't take her seriously if she acts in that manner, but I...

  15. Procrastination...why now???
    I totally understand!! I have to say, I do not cram until the last minute or freak out for an exam. Mostly because, at that point, I have kept up with my reading and organized my study time before an...
