  1. Do most schools look at the last 60hrs?
    All of the schools I applied to looked at both my cumulative (which was honestly terrible - like a 2.9 - due to a lot of issues that are all very old now) and my last 60 credits aka my ABSN GPA...

  2. The right BSN school?  The right 1st job?
    Agreed with all of the above. I started in the ICU straight out of school and was glad I did; I would have been insanely frustrated with the low acuity of the floor. The ICU has a large learning...

  3. Duke CRNA Jan 2014 start?
    Anyone else applying to Duke for the January start... and, more importantly, anyone hear about interviews yet? I feel like it should be any day now!

  4. % of people failing your program?
    Wow. We started with 62 and ended with 62. I'd be shocked if we lost anyone along the way to graduation, to be honest. I don't know that our program ever has asked someone to leave due to academics...

  5. Giving Thank you gifts
    Our clinical group all chipped in for a GC to a restaurant for our CI... I don't think it was that weird, considering the semester was over, grades were in, and it's really something to take a group...

  6. LPN students have to give bed baths to classmates?!
    I'm surprised at how many people are so offended by the idea. We just finished doing physical assessment and had to do our head-to-toe exams on each other in a sports bra and shorts (and will be...

  7. Nursing career and Crohn's Disease
    That's true. What I'm going through now is a full-on flare that I ignored for days assuming it was something viral that would pass; hopefully in the future I can recognize this sooner and take...

    Hey, everyone. I'm wondering if any of you out there are working nurses with Crohn's disease. I am - get this - two weeks into my ABSN program, and just spent three days in the hospital...

  10. How do you take notes for class, anyway?
    With the laptop thing - you can pick up a netbook nowadays for $200-250, and they're so small and portable that you can basically close it and toss it in your purse while running around campus. I...

  11. Duke ABSN Spring 2011
    It's RAD. I'm coming from FL, so I'm used to $200-300 in the summer and when it gets cold (like it did this January) we hit $450 in a townhouse because all anyone has down there are the heat pumps...

    Just as an FYI for those wanting to live near campus... check out University Apartments (I live here, full disclosure!). It's just over one mile from my door to the nursing school, plus I'm on a bus...

  14. The 2010-2011 HRSA Nursing Scholarship
    Uh... not sure... whatever a 3.4 across 60 credits (my first degree GPA) plus a 4.0 across 20 more (prereqs) works out to be. Probably a 3.4 or 3.5ish.

  15. The 2010-2011 HRSA Nursing Scholarship
    I'm kind of confused as to how "never updated any information on the list" automatically means she may have screwed up. What if the person's an alternate? What if there's no processing and updating...

    Chapel Hill is 7+ miles from campus and the main corridor between the two is a nightmare at anything remotely resembling peak traffic time. The rest of NC seems terrified of Durham but it's actually...

  18. The 2010-2011 HRSA Nursing Scholarship
    I think you're right. But if you look back, there were people with CL who had credit pulled over a couple of days last week - and now it's the weekend. I know exactly how you're feeling right now,...

    Yeah, it sounds like things are on a much shorter schedule for you guys. Our scholarship deadline was a week or so after acceptances went out. Listen, financial aid is not really an issue - at...

    Let's see. Gotta dig through the email. Uhm... acceptance would have been mid-February for us... and my financial aid email came March 16th. So about a month. But I knew about the scholarship before...

    There are six $10k scholarships - two of each of the three broad categories (overcoming difficulties, diversity, and working in the community.) They also give out a lot of smaller scholarships - I...

    Ha! From Florida, actually. Not exactly southern, but... central FL by birth/childhood, north FL for the last 6 years or so... that's where I picked it up. :) North FL, at least, is pretty southern.
