  2. One thing I learned today is that honesty will get you nowhere in Nursing School.
    Again...it happens. I've had it happen a couple of times. As long as the person doesn't make a habit out of it, of course I will be understanding. It is called life.

    I've had this happen to me before (it was a quiz) and my nursing instructor was kind enough to let me take the quiz after class. I'm so sorry. You would think that in this profession, people would...

  5. No more glucose checks by CNAs/PCTs
    I'm an aide, and I think that is just stupid. At my place of work, we scan the patient's wristband and when we dock the blood sugar, it automatically loads up into the patient's lab values. We...

  10. Do you go to nursing school everyday or just two times a week?
    It varies. Last semester, I only had to go twice a week. Two online classes, one 3.5 hr lecture and a 12-hour clinical. Now, it is three days a week, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

  11. Nursing School changing criteria to pass classes
    Yeah. At my program, we have a 95.5% NCLEX pass rate for first-time takers. I agree that a "C" in one program may mean a "B" in another.

  12. Nursing School changing criteria to pass classes
    It used to be 70% (a C-) but now it is a 73% (C), which I think is more than fair. Would you want a nurse who was one point away from a D+ giving you care? I don't think so.

  15. Too late to be a nurse?
    Well, think of it this way: in three years, you are going to sixty-two anyway. Would you rather be sixty-two with or without a nursing degree? The only thing I will caution you about is debt (and...
