    Got locked out of first test...Feeling like a failure

    Yeah that's happened to me before. I didn't bother giving an excuse, the instructor couldn't care less, so just brush yourself off and be on time for the next one. Though I imagine an accident like that isn't going to happen twice in once semester!

    grammer help for nursing student

    When I was in nursing school, I never came across an instructor who wasn't willing to review a paper before I submitted it. I HIGHLY recommend asking, because then you will know exactly what that instructor likes and is looking for.

    drug calculation

    As I learned it, the equation is desired over have multiplied by the quantity. So we have how much you want (800mg) divided by how much you have in the bottle (500mg) multiplied by the quantity, being 1mL. It helps to keep that multiplication step in there even if it's not necessary here, just to stay consistent. So you've got it, 1.6mL Since TDS means three times a day, you'll take your answer and multiply it by 3

    Passed the NCLEX!!!

    By the grace of God, I passed on Saturday!! 75 questions and I felt like a failure, but evidently that's a good sign. Official passing confirmation yesterday, what on earth do I do now?!

    Opinions would be wonderful!

    You better finish that degree! I am in my last semester of my ADN and I swear to you that the third semester started an hour ago. It goes so fast you won't believe it. You've made it this far, don't be concerned at all about making it through. :)

    Miserable nurses

    As a nursing student, let me just say that I totally understand where you're coming from. Just remember always that this is their job, we are just students, and very very lucky to even be in the hospital. If the nurse is a jerk, just do what you did and request someone else, then move on. It's not easy but you really do need to let it roll off your back. There are crappy coworkers in every profession, it's absolutely not constrained to the nursing profession and this won't be the worst thing to ever happen to you, I guarantee it. Best of luck to you :)
