Recycled topics (vent)

  1. Does anyone else pick up on how there is a core set of topics that get recycled, e.g. "My GPA is 0.00001, can I handle nursing school?"

    What subjects drive you to distraction after seeing them again and again?

    (Forgive me if this post is redux- I honestly don't remember seeing it before...)

    Yep. I maybe even created a few of them at some point. I don't have a problem with it though. There is such a turnover of readers that there may be a fresh set of eyes reading and willing to reply. If a topic did not interest to me, or seems like it has been posted multiple times before I just don't open it, read it, or reply. Or sometimes I do, if I went through a similar situation that may be helpful to a new poster.

    1. "I smoke, but the hospital where I really want to work tests all potential new hires for nicotine. Please help!"

    2. "Is nursing for me?"

    3. "I earned 'D' grades in A&P II, English comp, and microbiology. Is there a chance for me to be accepted into a nursing program?"

    I just got accepted to (insert name of for-profit, low-quality 'we'll accept you if you have a pulse and can sign the loan papers') University.

    I know it costs $132,000 for a BSN (I'm looking at you West Coast University)- but it's totally worth it since I would have to wait a whole year to get into somewhere reputable. I mean, at 22, I'm not getting any younger!

    So I want to know what you think- but please, no negative posts!

    Like why would anyone listen to someone who has failed the same test multiple times....

    I have to admit that once or twice I've looked at a topic that does not appear to interest me, and suddenly I find myself drawn in. Some twist on the subject, or some similarity to me years ago, suddenly comes to mind and I find myself responding to yet another "I'm a new grad and I want to quit post".

    The ones that really get me are where brand-spanking-new nurses want help finding a poop-free nursing job. At what point did you realize you were studying to become a nurse...or did you not?
