    Thank you so much everyone!!! My husband just took me out for a celebratory dinner LOL and it was just a phone call for a telephone interview. Oh well it's always important to reward yourself :roll

    Katie,
    The externship starts May 29 and ends August 2. I have taken all of my BSN courses so I was without any plans for the summer .. well I do need to take Statistics so I guess I have finished ALL of my courses. I just hope I get this

    I will keep y'all posted! Thank you for all of the support! This place is what keeps me together most of the time!!!

    Congrats Bree, 78 is passing. :wink2: For this test I read a lot. I go to class, read both Iggy and Lewis, try to watch most of the lecture videos on eCampus and I practice a lot of NCLEX questions. I read a LOT this semester. Do you have our Wednesday lecture videos on your eCampus? We did some review questions once in class and I found similar questions to those on test1. So it worth going to class or watch the videos online.
    Katie
    Well I guess I gotta read more! I didn't do any NCLEX questions this time because I just didn't manage my time well... I am determined to pass this semester and graduate in December! :chuckle

    You have an option of whether to go to class, or watch the videos online?

    My lecture instructor has been recording her previous 3rd semester lectures and ours, too. We do have to go to class but before or after classes we can watch her talking on eCampus.

    When it comes to psych. lectures we don't go to class. The psych. instructor is a different person and she has all her lectures online. For 3 weeks we only go to clinicals, everything else is online. We go to NLC to take the psych. test. After that we continue lectures with the original instructor at NLC. And since Brie and me has the same instructor we can watch/hear each other's lectures online. At least I could do that on eCampus.

    I think everyone needs a friend who is willing to pull them aside and say, "You're starting to annoy the class/teacher. Be quiet for awhile."

    This is one of my favorite stories from Brian Andreas:

    "Can I count on you to be there, no matter what? she said & I said no & she said what kind of friend are you? & I said the kind who won't lie to you any time you want & I think she kept me around as a curiosity after that"

    Everyone needs friends like that, dontcha think?

    Wellllllllllll I sent everything certified last week and I just got a call from them!!! I know it doesn't sound like a big deal but they set up a telephone interview with me for next Thursday!! They asked me which department I was interested in and I, of course, said ICU and they said they needed to know so they could get the Head Nurse in ICU to come in for the interview.
    Any news? I still have my fingers crossed.
