  2. Minor EMT
    It used to be 100 hours of classroom time in NYS. Two weeks full-time wouldn't do it.....it might even be longer now, not sure. But in any event, it's not a college curriculum by any stretch.

  3. Knitting during class: ok or not?
    After reading everyone else's replies, I've given it more thought.....I guess I'm in the minority because it wouldn't bother me if someone else were doing it, nor would I be 'unengaged' just because...

    Interesting question. I happen to be a very avid crochet fiend, and I am often crocheting while sitting in religious services. When I began attending my current synagogue (years ago), I "felt...

    congrats, mmcclurken! But here's an FYI: EVERYONE now goes to the payment screen, at least since Pearson Vue upgraded their registration software at the end of August. Now, EVERYONE is directed...

  12. nursing jobs most similar to social work
    I think you'd need to have a good understanding of what is involved in becoming a nurse in the first place: years of pre-requisite courses, core nursing classes, and varied clinical rotations. Psych...

  14. Newbies Who Want to Pay ZERO Dues Schedule-Wise
    Good point. I guess I was just drawing the parallel between the kinds of jobs that are 24/7, comparing the need to staff all these shifts, with nursing jobs. Certainly there are differences...

  17. Near to Pass
    Actually, no. You must be at or above the passing standard in EVERY category of material covered, or you cannot pass the NCLEX. That's where the CPR can be so useful: letting applicants know what...

    The CPR said you were near the passing standard in all categories....yet it stopped at 76 questions? That's odd....if you really WERE near the passing standard, it would have kept giving you...

    An all-wheel drive Volvo, put into lower gears prn, will get you through anything the NE has to throw at you. Never used snow tires, just my regular tires, changed regularly to keep them good. :)
