  1. B

    I know you mentioned seeing a doctor about your anxiety and getting a prescription for an antidepressant but who have you spoken with about this besides this particular doctor? Did they recommend speaking with a therapist? Medicine is just one side o...
  2. Hi All, So I passed my NCLEX on July 31st and have been on the job hunt. I have been interviewing with a big hospital system in my state for an ortho floor. I even shadowed a few days ago and was told by the unit manager that everything was a go...
  3. Free test banks online

    There's a big difference between practice questions and test banks. Which are you asking for? Because if it's practice questions you want, try RegisteredNurseRN (she has a Youtube channel and a website). Here's a link: https://www.registerednursern.c...
  4. Senior Preceptorship- how to prepare

    What type of unit are you going to be working on? Med-surg? Tele? Definitely review the common medications of the unit and focused assessments that you might complete for the type of patients you'll see. This way, you can better connect the dots of w...
  5. Discipline Meeting

    Not to beat this into the ground as I know the point has already been made by multiple people but, yes, I totally support this 100% Often times, the absolute best way to get back at petty and conniving people who did you dirty is to rise above t...
  6. US college schooling advice (I want to give up)

    What have you done to try to improve your academic experience in school? Have you gone to your school resources for help? Looked into tutoring? What is it specifically that you struggle with? Definitely don't throw in the towel before doing a so...
  7. What's your budget?
  8. Not getting interviews before NCLEX

    As gere7404 said, make sure you're specifically applying to new grad positions. I'm a senior and my school expects my cohort to be interviewing right now and securing jobs that will give us a guaranteed job under the condition that we pass the NCLEX ...
  9. Recommend a quality online supplement?

    Definitely watch RegisteredNurseRN on Youtube. She has videos on just about everything studied/tested on in nursing school and her mnemonics for remembering concepts have never failed me. She also has her own website with free practice questions for ...
  10. Home Health Care New Grad

    Hey, congrats! I'm a student also graduating in May this year and I am very interested in home health care. However, both teachers, clinical instructors, and preceptors for my community/home health care clinical have all told me the same thing: home ...
  11. Tips for IM injections?

    These are the 3 biggest takeaways that I have found since doing vaccine clinics: 1. Follow the landmarks (three fingers under the acromion process/thickest part of muscle). I have seen many people administer too high (and have even had some peop...
  12. Question About Hospital Scheduling

    Hi there, I'm a student. I'll be graduating soon and will be applying to various positions in the coming weeks. I feel silly asking this question as it's probably something I should have known eons ago but how exactly rigid is hospital schedulin...
  13. Question About Hospital Scheduling

    @MunoRN @JBMmom @SilverBells Thank you so much for all of your helpful replies. And in response to JBMmom, sorry I didn't specify - I have a religious meeting on that night. Thanks again!
  14. Little Miss Know-it-all

    This is definitely the best piece of advice that can be offered. From the way you describe this student, she's not purposely trying to put others down or make herself look better. She's just knowledgeable and excited to participate in class. This isn...
  15. First Semester of Nursing School

    Yep, practice NCLEX questions now because those types of questions are used in school so it doesn't matter that you won't be taking the official NCLEX for a few years. Learn to think in terms of "they're all correct but which question is most co...
  16. Discusssion

    Just as a general rule of thumb, change in mentation is always a very big RED FLAG. It means something is very wrong and needs it be fixed very fast. A blood sugar of 50 is hypoglycemic and needs to be fixed STAT with juice or glucose tablets if cons...
  17. Nursing School Supplies/Resources?

    Hands down, RegisteredNurseRN on Youtube is the best free supplemental resource I have made use of throughout all of nursing school. Her mnemonics are amazing helpful and she even has free quizzes on her website for after you watch the videos.
  18. Started at 17. Currently on track to graduate in the next 4 months at 21.
  19. I want to apologize to my instructor. Please help me.

    As stated above, a very sincere apology through email sounds to be about the only thing you can do. Seeing as you already wrote it, I can’t offer advice on points you could have/should have included. Hopefully it was sincere and brings some peace of ...
  20. Failed clinical portion of nursing school during COVID

    We are giving advice according to the information that you have provided.
  21. Failed clinical portion of nursing school during COVID

    I hear your frustration. But I unfortunately don't think I (or probably anyone on this forum) can offer you the answer you're looking for. As I and a few others have stated, not being happy with the type of assignment does not absolve your responsibi...
  22. Failed clinical portion of nursing school during COVID

    Yes, we have to pass both exams and clinical assignments to pass the semester. I'm not sure when you were in nursing school but I assume it's been this way for a while? Passing exams means nothing if you fail other parts of the course. Assuming ...
  23. First off, I'm sorry this is happening to you. It's ridiculous that adults can be so immature and childish. However, I think it's important to remember that their bullying comes out of a place of extreme insecurity and feelings of inferiority. Rememb...
  24. Failed clinical portion of nursing school during COVID

    I completed about 80% of my clinical assignments virtually this semester. These assignments included doing some virtual simulations and a heft amount of written papers with a heavy focus on research. I'm going to go ahead and assume the student in qu...
  25. Dropped from cohort

    Well I certainly hope everything works out for you and you're able to get your money back.
