    Hi guys, I received an update and have been invited for an interview (AGPCNP)! Mine is on the 31st. To those who have yet to receive anything, I hope you get updates. To those who did not get a chance to move forward, I am sorry - but just as the others have mentioned, this is not the end of your journey. Keep going and keep pushing forward.

    Lone Star Spring 2020 ADN

    I'm at NH. I like it! It's been a good experience...They do seem more lenient but still stick to the rules bigtime. The instructors are good too. I'm happy I came here.

    Lone Star Spring 2020 ADN

    I guess for me it’s a same driving distance as to woodlands ! How often do you go for the cliniclas ? Once a week ? How do they pick people who can do that !? It drastically reduce the load ! I better sit for two extra hours that come extra day for the class lol

    Lone Star Spring 2020 ADN

    North Harris is the same, you can have lecture and lab on same day (but not every student has this, it is assigned)...and one day for clinical.

    I'm not sure what you'd consider "low GPA" but I think that the reason they look at applicants so holistically is because they realize that there are good practitioners who don't have a 4.0 GPA. They have the cut off at 3.0 and I believe they said the average GPA was more midline, like 3.5 or 3.6, which means they choose applicants from GPAs above and below that (obviously). If you have demonstrated your commitment and qualifications in your resume, personal statement, and essays, I think you will be a competitive applicant, regardless of your GPA.

    Arrested for DUID on Way to Work- Will I Lose my License?

    I do agree. No nurse should be taking narcotic pain medication while at work. If you need it to control pain, fine, but stay home and definitely stay off the roads. We tell our patients upon discharge not to drive while taking these medications, why are we exempt? Just because someone does not feel the effect of a narcotic does not mean it is not decreasing their response time, mental reasoning, etc. These are things we can not judge ourselves. Just as a chronic alcoholic can function with a blood alcohol level of 0.20, he would still be considered legally drunk even without signs of intoxication. The other issue with this is she was driving while extremely fatigued. This is the same as driving drunk. Common sense should have been used and no police officer should encourage you to continue to drive when you say you can not. At the end of the day, you are responsible for yourself. Working while actively taking narcotic pain medication when you have people's lives in your hands is irresponsible on the part of the nurse and the employer. It is a huge liability.

    Nicu resuscitation nursing

    Paper towels. Just don't accidently throw it away. Find the clock in the room, use that for your time. You have the time of birth, so you can extrapolate age in minutes. We had a stamp w/all the admission data we could use on our charts. (showing my age--paper charts)

    After meeting with my advisor a few times, I've decided to start out part time. I will be taking one course on campus, and one online per semester this year. I feel this will better suit my family for the time being.

    MSU ABSN Cost

    Hello All, I was just accepted into MSU's ABSN program. I cannot figure out how much the cost is though. I have been looking at the tables and I'm coming up with a huge $$$ I'm just wondering if anyone knows what it would cost per for the full program. I'm paying out of state tuition. I know it changes every year but just knowing a roundabout cost would really help me.

    Science at community college or university?

    I was in the same spot last year. From all of my research, I decided to take one at a university so that I didn’t run into situations where the class wouldn’t count. If you know the specific schools you’re applying to and if they don’t have a preference - take what’s easiest/most convenient. But if you aren’t sure which programs you’ll apply to and want to keep your options open, go with a university/upper level chemistry. Some schools want organic, some say organic or biochemistry, some will specify “upper level” bio/chemistry, some will say it’s okay to NOT have a lab. There’s a lot of variation from program to program.
