    I am a new nursing student, I start this Spring. I need to get a stethoscope and white shoes. What would you recommend as the best stethoscope to get as well as type of shoes? I researched stethoscopes but there are so many, I want to get a good one.
    Thank you!

    Ya know what? You are actually right about the friend thing. Going through anatomy it was great to have a study group but sometimes it brought me down because you constantly are comparing your study habits to theirs and for me I always felt insecure I wasn't as good as them. Even though I got all A's on my own. Thanks for calling that to my attention. I know friends will be helpful in the program but it definitely is good to be able to be in my own world sometimes when it comes to studies. I have already had some needy people call on me for help and it does really affect my own time to study.

    hello who ever is reading

    I just got accepted into the Nursing Program at my school for this coming Spring semester! I am extremely excited and thankful, but also very nervous. My friends and I are splitting up so I am worried I won't make friends and I know I am going to need a good group to study with. I will have nursing 101 as my class and I just don't know what to expect. I am so worried that I am going to get there and people are going to think I don't belong. I guess I am just scared of being thinking I am not good enough. I am just so scared. Any advice!!?? What should I be ready for overall. Another thing. I am a very sensitive person, which I know is a good thing sometimes. However, I am scared it will hold me back, will I learn to be better at that type of thing? Thanks to anyone who replies! Oh and another thing!...The TEAS V exam?!?! So nervous!

    yeah it would delay my applying by a semester technically i think. And I think it is a 4 credit class, I am pretty sure. And I am 19 so I do have some time but i just really want to start my life ha. I am signed up for the class with my one friend (we had chemistry together) and so if i do decide to take it i am hoping it will help that she is there. And yes I had chem and bio already, it is a pre req. for micro. Idk i think I can do it cause I can put alot of time in and I study like a crazy woman for these classes but I am scared I won't put my all in because i am at the point in school when I am starting to dwindle down. That fire that was driving me really is dying down. I keep waiting for the school to post the teacher thinking that would help cause if it is a hard teacher, hell no. but they still have no posted. Thanks for the replies!

    So i only need A&P2 and Micro left before I can start to apply to the associates program at my school. I was planning on taking Micro in the 6 week summer session after this semester and then A&P2 in the fall and then start to apply cause i know it will take more than one application to get in. My anatomy teacher scared me cause he over heard me talking about it and said to be careful not to try and get classes done so fast cause I may screw myself and if I get a bad grade (because it is only 6 weeks) I could screw myself for getting in the program. What is your advice I really just want to start applying and if I don't take Micro in the summer I will need to take it in the spring which will dely me starting to apply... im not sure what to do. At first I thought i'd be okay because it would be my only class and I could really focus on it and I have been doing good in all my sciences so far like AP1 i have an A i just got a 100 on my bones practical.. Has anyone ever taken Micro in a summer session of 6 weeks? How was it?! Opinions? Thanks!

    so I am not sure if this is the right area to post this but I just need some type of advice. I am 19 years old and I am in school heading towards nursing. I am extremely stressed out all the time, but over all I am pretty happy with my life. When I was 17 years old I was having trouble at home (parent drama) but long story short I lost a lot of weight, exercised constantly, starved and if I did eat I'd make sure my calorie intake was less than 300 a day, and it usually was a lot less. I am 5,4 and at that time i had gone down to around 117 which for me is rather thin. I knew I had a problem and I still do. But I have tried to control it and I have changed my life into a much better situation and I am a whole lot better with the disorder but I still struggle a lot with it and my self esteem. I actually still you use laxatives alot...which i know is a very big risk for alot of things, but I just can't stop. The really meaning of this message is that I am planning on going back on birth control ( i got off of it at 18 cause I had gained weight). My boyfriend is the man for me and we are going to get engaged in a couple years I keep telling him that I am going to go on the pill...but i keep putting it off because Im so scared it is going to make me gain weight again. I know that it's very stupid of me to rather risk pregnancy than gain weight but it is so hard for me. I know that the second I start to gain I am going to get depressed and I am going to get out of control again. I know that some pills have low estrogen and don't allow the body to retain as much water. I just, I dont know what to do. I am so scared that I'm going to gain weight and lose control of my life again. Has anyone ever felt like this...sorry if this is a stupid question...
