  4. Stabbed in the Back? Nursing Culture?
    Sounds like you work with a bunch of class-A buttholes. While some gossip I would expect (it's human nature to just talk/people to run their mouths), what you're having to deal with is ridiculous....

  5. First night on my own. (Long vent)
    Thank you all for your replies! I was so hyped up from that shift, my mind was going in circles. I'm on call tonight, and bummed. Worried I won't get enough clinical experience being hired...

  9. Decision Tree
    I didn't use the decision tree religiously. Rather, I developed my own style from it. The tree is meant to get you in the habit of looking at first the question systematically, and then each...

  10. Do you have to be above passing or just passing standard?
    I believe if you go all the way to 265 in the amount of testing time (6h) it doesn't matter if you get the last question wrong or correct -- it has to be a passing level question. If someone has...

  16. When did you start studying for NCLEX RN?
    I don't think it's ever too early to start prepping for The Beast. Our school encouraged us to do NCLEX style questions in a recommended Q&A book in sections/content we were covering for the week....

  17. I heard that that there is a partial credit for SATA. is this true?
    It's all or nothing. The computer is spitting the test out at you one question at a time. Each new question is dependent on the last one you answered. Gear up, I had 29 of those bad boys but I passed...
