  2. How old is too old for an Algebra class
    It depends entirely on the school. My credits were nearly 20 years old when I went back to school. Some credits they accepted (English, Algebra, Humanities, etc.). I was required to re-take Anatomy,...

  3. Dosage Calc exam and special accomodations
    I'm going to have to agree with classicdame. How do you expect to function as an RN in the real world where you don't get special accommodations? It's just not realistic or feasible in a fast-paced...

  4. Nervous about chemistry, what resources did you use to study?
    Use KhanAcademy! It's free and it's wonderful. I got through both Gen Chem and Organic Chem with a 4.0 because of that site. I highly recommend it :) Also, if your school offers supplemental...

  7. Phlebotomy/tourniquet help
    When you put the tourniquet under the arm, grasp each side very close to the arm, not the ends. Cross the left in front of the right and tuck it under with your right thumb. This will ensure your end...

    If you want to be in health care administration, then major in that. Trying to do nursing plus all the required classes for your minor is going to be very tough. Nursing isn't just a class you take 2...

    We're not concept-based, but the work assignments are pretty much on par with what we're required to do. In fact, we have a few more APA papers to write and 8 exams total in the last semester. Even...

  15. I have forgotten a lot of the material covered in pre-requesites (Anatomy & Phy). Help
    I have to respectfully disagree with you. I think GrnTea gave a serious reality tap. All of the students in my class who struggled in Med Surg were the ones who also struggled with A&P in pre-reqs....

  16. Paralyzing Fear!!!
    I find that if I start with the unit I need on top of the fractions FIRST, then it's easy to cancel out the units you don't need until you arrive at your answers. I never go wrong that way. I...
