  1. Large percentage failing nursing school exams, why?
    We never get a study guide. We are told it the syllabus which chapters every unit contains and anything we learn within those weeks is fair game.

  11. Do you keep your personal life private while in nursing school?

  13. Careplans.com website are they worth the money?
    I'm just a nursing student but I don't think using a care plan builder is going to be a good thing. I have Ackley's Nursing Diagnosis Handbook and NANDA-I Nursing Diagnosis book.

    I start my program next week and my NM talked to me about keeping my scope of practice boundaries clear. When I'm working as a tech I cannot do things that I am allowed to do at clinicals.

  24. CNA + medical assisant
    What is your end goal for your career? My hospital doesn't hire MAs because they aren't licensed by the BON. If you are looking to work in a hospital I think it would be a waste of time and money.
