    I definitely understand the frustration. I will be once again writing for my Nurse III. I feel pretty confident this time. I have completed two projects that effect multiple units as well as both VAs in my area. I have been very involved as well. I feel my proficiency addresses all of the standards. I have read other staffs proficiency that are very limited but have received Nurse III. Also at my VA we write our own. I know a lot of people who really add a ton of fluff some far from the truth. If anyone has a proficiency that would be a good example for getting a Nurse III I would be very interested. Thanks

    So I have an interview in about two weeks at a major hospital. They do a residency program for new grads which is supposed to be top notch. Well I am very interested in getting in the critical care field. One of the key factors they focus on is critical thinking. Now throughout school there has always been the talk of how important that is. I do it all the time but I just can't think of things off the top of my head with such a broad topic. So I was seeking some advice.

    Where would I look to get a penlight that attached to my badge. My badge has a cord that allows it to extend to swipe in the time clock. I have seen some nurses who have it attached to that so its always with you and your not forgetting it. Looks sort of like a flash drive - that size

    Does NCLEX ask more about nursing implications for these drugs, or just side effects or both. I know the nursing implications cover some side effects - usually the worst ones.

    Yeh it is crazy especially with the high demand of nurses. Well I know I can get in the private schools here, just wanted to try a lower cost university first.

    Well I went to Books a Million to look over some books. They had a few labeled Nursing Entrance Exam (not test - NET). They had some parts in there that was not on my NET test. Here are the links. Could anyone tell me if these are the right books or where I can find them.

    I took it a few times last summer and couldnt seem to score high enough on the reading/science part. I didnt understand that cause I do extremely well in both reading and science. I don't think we were allowed to go back to previous sections. Maybe because the sections after the reading were short times and there really was no time to go back. Does anyone know a good place for tutoring for it. I am thinking of retrying soon and hope to do much better.

    I have taken all the nursing prerequisites. Eng, Hist, Anat 1 and 2, Micro, Chem, Soc, Phys, Humanaties and so. Those I have done well it. They are mostly A's and some B's. The GPA from those classes is pretty good, like a 3.6 and probably a 3.71 after this semester. Its just a few engineering grades that pull it down.

    I was stupid when I was starting college. I never really thought about it all too much. The classes were real hard, and I didn't focus or try hard enough. I was not smart when I started out. So that is hurting me.

    I am wanting to get into a BSN program with a long term goal of becoming a CRNA. These schools are just university nursing schools, and they have a limited amount of students they can take. I am sure it has to do with the shortage of nurses. They only look at GPA and that is all. I have some volunteer work on my resume. Maybe nothing special. I have volunteered 5 yrs in a row working as a counselor for kids with MD over the summer for 1 week.

    I have also tried to get a job in a hospital. Most of the time I am told after my first semester of nursing school I can easily get a job because you learn about giving medicines and such like that. You can also take a CNA course I believe which takes around 9 weeks. I have thought of that but often been busy with school and keep thinking I will get in. I was considering volunteering this summer if I cant get in.

    Quote from Jules A
    My school only used nursing pre-reqs to determine the gpa. Are you sure your engineering classes will be counted? The other thing I would think is that if you transfer to a different school most of them won't post grades for transfer classes only the credits earned. Good luck.
    What school is that. I just got to find the right place. A lot of the private schools just really need a good GPA and u to pass the NET. That is what I am going to check out next.

    Whats the PSB. I know some based mainly on the NET.
