  1. Nurses Fight Back! Why Some Hospitals are Despicable
    "Doctors are coddled to" - oh YES! That is definitely true for me. I'm in the OR and the surgeons are pretty much allowed to treat others however they want, including techs, residents, and students....

  2. Asepsis and anxiety!
    For interventional radiology, what types of procedures do you do exactly? Did you go through a "periop 101" lecture/clinical type program before you started on this unit? I'm afraid I'm not too...

  3. Makeup under mask
    I second the primer suggestion. That and a setting/finishing powder would really help, in addition to a setting spray. Go to Sephora and ask them for help. They will match your foundation, hook you...

  5. I PASSED AT 265!
    The Kaplan content videos are worth a watch. They will review nursing content, a 'quick and dirty' review. The other videos are a review of the practice tests with a detailed walk-through for each...

  6. Failed NCLEX 1st time in 75 questions, PASSED in 75 questions the second time!!
    Great advice. Unfortunately, for some of us, it's not just a test. There's a lot riding on this exam, and I am not feeling confident about taking it at all.

  7. I'm having surgery and I have some questions!!
    Although I agree the OP should speak with her surgeon, this post was very helpful and appropriate. As a budding OR nurse, I appreciated it too :)

  9. Prioritizing help
    Your answer will change depending on what the question is asking you. Airway is always number one though, even if someone is bleeding out. If they can't breathe, it doesn't matter if they're...

  10. Why does school have to be made to be (seemingly) unneccesarily difficult?
    Time management is key, but I'd argue that prioritization is even more important. If you are reading every single chapter assigned, thoroughly, you're doing it wrong. Skim through it, read the...

  12. Is nursing as bad as some say???
    In my BSN program, we have a nurse leadership class. One of the topics will be about the ACA and how it affects nursing. You most likely will cover this topic at some point in your program, but it...

  13. Is there anybody out there doing well in nursing school?
    Mine is a BSN program that uses a point scale. The grading is very strict, and makes it impossible to get a 4.0, which is 99-100%. The only way to get a 4.0 is to get 100% on every single exam in...

    Right, but technically you'd be gathering the vitals first because you put the BP cuff on. Unless you can put a BP cuff on with one hand while taking the pulse with the other! lol Nursing exams are...

  16. Failed 7th time NCLEX RN. Am I a really a failure?
    I would definitely use a study guide that provides a rationale for each of the answers. Find out what area you struggle the most in, and study the heck out of that. Nursing exams and the NCLEX...

  18. Health Care Law vs Patient Outcomes
    Actually, that's not entirely true. There is a penalty/fee/tax/whatever (starting in 2014), but that's only $95 per year, although it can go up to $695 (or 2.5 percent of taxable income) in 2016. So...

  20. Pardon the bad math, but I noticed something about nursing jobs!
    I have no problem working nights, weekends or holidays. I don't have children or much of a family, so working those shifts doesn't bother me at all. I know that it's important for others to be with...

    We had to brush each others teeth and it was actually fun! We were all giggling during our validations and so were the professors! However, we were not forced to do so. Some classmates had expensive...

    We have mannequin arms to practice on and a computer simulator video game in lab, and in clinical we perform on pts. We don't practice on each other because it is a huge liability and too much red...

    I haven't had any problems with taking nursing school tests. I've enjoyed taking them far more than chemistry tests, for example. So far, everything has been very common sense. A few facts to...

  24. Law and Order: SVU = studying.
    SVU is almost always on when I'm studying! I've seen every single episode, so some of them end up being background noise for me, but still - not a day goes by without SVU poppin' up on my TV. I...
