  1. A&M Round Rock 2nd degree 2015
    Well, the way I see it, if I don't get in, at least that gives me more time to save up money for school in the future, and thus carry less student loans later on. There's a silver lining for every...

  2. A&M Round Rock 2nd degree 2015
    By the way, how did you both feel about the NursingCAS application itself? All in all, I wasn't too disappointed with it. It was a little tedious putting every single one of my grades in, but the...

  3. A&M Round Rock 2nd degree 2015
    I re-checked their website and it said this: "It can take up to 8 weeks after your NursingCAS application is verified before you receive an email directing you to the supplemental application...

  4. A&M Round Rock 2nd degree 2015
    I haven't even received a supplemental application yet, and I'm getting a bit worried. I know that TAMHSC said on their website that they don't start processing applications until all components...

  5. A&M Round Rock 2nd degree 2015
    Thank you! Good luck to you as well. I read that you are starting an EMT program, and I think that's going to be wonderful preparation for RN school. A friend and co-worker of mine used to be a...

  6. A&M Round Rock 2nd degree 2015
    I re-took Microbiology online through ACC, but I had to go to lab at the Cypress Creek campus. Honestly, I really had to slog for that class. It was quite a bit of work. The lab practicals and...

  7. A&M Round Rock 2nd degree 2015
    Oh, I can imagine it's a full-time job! I don't have kids, but I'm amazed at how a lot of people with kids make it through RN school. TONS of respect for those folks from me. I'm full-time at Dell...

  8. A&M Round Rock 2nd degree 2015
    Meh. It's an OK score, but thank you nonetheless! I was taking Pathophysiology through ACC this semester, but ended up dropping the course recently. I work two jobs at night-shift, and between...

  9. A&M Round Rock 2nd degree 2015
    Hi folks. I took the HESI A2 today, so my application should be finished now! I took A&P years ago, back in 2011, and was extremely worried that I wouldn't make the minimum 75% on that section....

  10. Is it a good idea to write up another nurse or unit staff member who acts hostile?
    On the unit I work in, there's a certain night shift charge nurse (whom I rarely interact with, since we work different days) that some new nurses find a bit intimidating. I, a CNA, personally can't...

  11. If a patient wants something but an RN says don't do it, whom do you follow?
    There was this mini-issue (not even an incident, really) that happened at work, and I feel a bit troubled by it. OK, so I was caring for my unit's patients as the only nursing assistant one day...

  12. Should I apply for a job with my company's staffing agency if I need extra hours?
    I work as a nursing assistant and I absolutely love my job. I'm really busy 3 days a week, on 12h shifts, but I feel that I get a lot out of it. And my company's really great, too, and I genuinely...

  13. Is it right for my mom to keep me from getting the annual Flu Shot?
    But that doesn't address her mom's concerns about not getting the flu shot (d/t that article).

    This might be a really stupid question, but you don't need letters of recommendation for this program, do you?

  15. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    I think I am too (worrying unnecessarily). I know that she'd just avoid me. Still, I'm committed to keeping things professional. I absolutely want to make the best impression possible and am just a...

  16. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    Well, okay. Thank you then. But hopefully it won't get to that point where I need a lawyer anyway.

  17. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    That's what I need to know: Whether or not I have grounds to seek legal advice in the first place. Suppose that my now-former instructor had said to other nurses, "Oh, that new CNA, that person was...

  18. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    You're missing my point. If my new manager had known who my instructor was (which I doubt) and asked about me, that's fine. For common-sense reasons, one would obviously list references of...

  19. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    The CNA position I had applied to and had gotten the job for did not require one to be a nursing student, much less provide transcripts or academic records. Moreover, why would they? I didn't get an...

    But you still technically broke HIPAA, right? Or is verbal consent from an obviously Altered Mental Status (AMS) patient okay to give out patient health status info on the phone? Thank God you...

  21. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    Aren't student records confidential, though? I mean, sure, the former nursing instructor isn't my boss, and my CNA work obviously is a very different role from that of a nursing student, but it's an...

  22. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    Recently I got hired at a hospital nearby as a CNA, which is wonderful because I'm taking this year off (2013) from nursing school and I do want more clinical experience. I felt that I wasn't getting...

    Does anyone here work at ARC? I applied for a PRN position there but I don't know anyone who works at any of the ARC clinics, so was hoping to talk to-slash-semi-network with someone there.
