Hi my name is Jaleisha and I am new to this site Hello to the everyone that reads this. But I'm actually doing an on line Medical Assistant program. And my only worries are hands on experience. I not sure how successful I will be, after I finish the program, to get hired. Maby someone else has gone through this. If I can get ANY input, that will be great!

Hi Jaleisha, My name is Kimand I am new to this site as well. I am waiting to get into the local LPN program, they only admit every 18 months or so , so it will be Januaury of 2011 before I can get started. But I am lucky the school is like 5 minutes from my hosue!

I was thinking maybe you can find a friend who owes you a favor or family, and ask them to be your guinea pig for a while ...so you have a real person to go over the steps with, unless it is sometihng invasive then I would suggest practicing steps until they are completetly memorized :D

I actually have a semester and half of RN school under my belt, but I did not get to finsh:crying2: I had to leave due to medical issues, and those are the things we did...just practice until going through the motions are automatic.

I do plan on going back ot school but I am gonna og othe LPN program that is 5 miles from my house!!!!!!!!Before i was driving 2 hours a day....

Good luck hope some of this helps

Hi my name is Hal, I am new here too. and Kimand dont give up and keep going in your persuit RN career, I haven't, I have failed my NCLEX RN too many times that I lost courage to take it for the pass two years until now, I started picking up study guides again and reviewing.

As for you guys Devine and Jaleisha, practice makes perfect, and the best practice is really doing it like, what they "muscle memory". Good Luck!

..I left the RN prorgam with a solid B average, it was just that I had a siezure and was not able to make the 2 hour daily commute because I could not drive at all. Then i found out the seizure was related to diabetes..that I did not know I had! I was a mess for a few months! My docctor recommended a less srtessful Degree but nursing is really what i want to do and I can do the LPN program 5 miles from my house...I am hoping that the change in commute, will lessen some of the stress. I am finally getting excited again about going back to school!!!!

I plan on getting my RN school books out and reviewing alot between now and then and start practicing the steps of the skills I had already learned, and reviewing care plans I have already written. The muscle meory is kinda rusty for me as well so it will takea little practice to get smooth and coordinated again.

Good luck all!!!

hello hal~

i have a question on the nclex.

what happens if u fail nclex ?

is it true that they let you take it twice per year

and if still not passing, they take away privilege of becoming a nurse.???

According to the representative I talk to and coorespond with, you can take it as much as you want.

the only thing you have to wait is the 45 days processing period, as far as NY state is concern.

and all you have to pay is the Pearson $200 fee everytime you take it. the lady said once your

in the system you are in, your qualified to take it already.

I never heard anything about taking away previlage as a nurse, just remember you

pass the nursing school your competent enough to practice under supervision, so

the only loophole I can think of are, the situation where your practicing under limited permit

/ Limited RN permit, if you dont pass NCLEX RN while under limited permit that then they

take it away, that the only thing I can think of as far as previlage your talking about.

Note: It would be best to consult your State Board of Nursing for situation like that.

I did and OPSED of NY was very helpful, and so as BON.

good luck.
