  2. Straightliner Course for A&p
    I did A&P I with them last semester. There were a few mistakes on the quizzes and some of the definitions were off, but I was taking it as a refresher and recognized the mistakes. Probably the most...

  3. LPN or Medical Assistant
    Just a thought -- your forum name is "WantToBeMidwife." Correct me if I'm wrong (truly!), but I believe midwifery is an advanced practice RN role. The LVN route would be a step in that direction,...

  4. Opinions of Lisa Arends for Excelsior College.
    SG101 = MyStudyGroup101 LLC I love their audio CDs. I listen to them in the car while making my daily sitting-in-Houston-traffic ventures.

  6. A couple of questions about Houston schools
    I can say only that the Texas BON's website shows that the HCC ADN program is being downrated from "Full Approval" to "Full Approval With Warning" due to low NCLEX pass rates. This change appears in...

    Your best source for information would be the website for The American Association of Medical Assistants. It covers all of the questions you had, plus more. Best of luck on your test.

  10. LPN vs MA
    Nope, you cannot challenge the CMA test. CMA requires graduation from an approved program and completion of an externship before you can sit for the certification test. RMA, on the other hand -- a...

  13. Is this a Scam?
    You can find the same type of questions in readily-available study guides and free on-line sources. I'm leery of pay-for-use sites that have "fabulous" sample questions, then want you to pay for...

  17. Shady Nursing School Abruptly Closes Its Doors
    The College offers many programs other than LVN. There may be 500 students total attending the college, but that doesn't tell us how many were enrolled in the LVN program, or indicate how many were...

    Food for Thought: The Anamarc College LVN program (El Paso, Texas) is approved by the Texas BON. The college's NCLEX pass rates from 2009 through 2013 were in a very respectable range of 90.91 to...

    Ah! You ARE in the chem/biochem/orgo combo class. This is NOT a Gen Orgo class or even a Gen Chem class. It's a survey-type class that covers a little bit of everything, and isn't a higher level...

  23. Do you help other students out?
    A passive-aggressive approach isn't going to work with this person, and you need to define the limitations clearly and NOW before it drags on. Be up front and tell her that you are going to the...
