  1. How many clinicals do you have per week?
    I'm in a 4 year program and last semester I had OB clinicals from 0700-1530 (one day) and mental health clinicals for 8 weeks from 1300-2000 (one day) and switched to a community site from 0800-1100....

  2. Finished my first semester of nursing school, but failed pharmacology :( Help?
    I'm not sure on your situation, but if you're worried about lack of clinical experience, you could try getting some of the same aspect by working as a CNA? Try talking to your advisor again because...

  3. Posting your Exam Grades on Facebook
    I don't really post my grades on facebook, but I don't mind if someone is like "A in a class!!!" because I would feel super happy for them. I usually say I passed my classes instead.

  4. Finding an entry level cna opening
    I would try a nursing home or home health care agency (if you don't mind driving and a varied schedule). Hospitals usually require previous experience as a CNA or medsurg clinical experience as a...

  5. I flunked out of clinical today..
    I'm really sorry for you!!! I would forget my watch for clinicals too but there were physical old school clocks on the wall and the digital thermometers had a timer option. The major problem was that...

  6. Is it better to do an entry MSN or BSN if you do not have an RN yet?
    There's the direct entry option. Half of the students in my clinical classes are DE students and my godmother's daughter got her's after getting a bachelor's in biology. I heard they were cancelling...

  7. Religion in Nursing
    I think it would be right to say "you are in my thoughts" to be neutral to the patient and show that you care, no matter what they believe in. If the patient asks you to pray with them, I think...

  8. How long did it take you to find a CNA job?
    I got my CNA license in August (in Wisconsin, you have to have your license before you can start working) and applied in October since my schedule got lighter and I wanted to work during winter break...

  9. Nursing Diagnosis (NANDA format)
    Every nursing diagnosis needs "as evidenced by" aka aeb and "related to" aka r/t. Here is one that I did for a class: At risk for suicide related to hopelessness, increased anxiety, poor rapport...

  10. Are you able to see tests after grading?
    A lot of exams are scantron now. Depending on the professor, you might do a class review of your scantron and test after your exam has been graded. Also, they will probably offer office hours before...

  11. Is it worth it to become a CNA on my road to becoming a nurse?
    Seconding t2091! I was extremely awkward in communicating with patients but the other nursing students who were CNAs had a lot of experience with asking things calmly and smoothly with good bedside...

  12. Horrified at what I have seen go on in this nursing home
    Defs go with the anonymous report! You need to be subjective as noted by the other people said! Good luck with the rest of your clinical and make sure your CNA care is top-notch instead~

  13. Can CNAs work outside the Nursing home?
    If you don't have experience, you can always work in home health! I just got hired and it's mostly PRN for now but it's driving to client's homes and taking care of them. It does lack the social...

    Wow, this sounds awesome that you love working as a CNA! You could always do an alternative to a nursing home if it gets too much for you like a home health care CNA? It's more driving but more...

  15. Having to quit
    It's fine to change to PRN (as needed) shift as long as you notify your employer. But not answering your phone is irresponsible and will be a major impact on future jobs since they call your past...

  17. Which year do nursing students start their clinicals?
    For my BSN program, we have fundamentals during our sophomore year and clinicals starting our junior year. It was super exciting since I am currently taking mental health and childbearing clinicals!!!

  18. Binders for notes?
    I use a 2 inch binder for each class? And when you're printing out your powerpoints, you should decide on whether you'll print it fullsize (1 per page) or go 6 slides per page~ Fortunately, I live on...

  21. Anxiety over CNA course
    This totally sounds like the 15 day course that I took. You should have gotten time in your class to practice it but next time, try to go first to make sure you have a chance? How big is your class?...

  22. Only male in the CNA class; feeling awkward
