  1. Pretty sure I failed

    I’m sure it is part my lack of self-esteem, and part my test anxiety. I had expected to see new content on the NCLEX but I cannot remember seeing anything that I felt confident in answering. ? I’m gonna go for a hike today and keep my mind occupied. ...
  2. Pretty sure I failed

    I took my NCLEX yesterday morning and I almost had a panic attack in the middle of it. ? It was sooo difficult. And with the mask on, I felt like I couldn’t breathe well. It was awful. It shut off at 75 questions. I had soooo many SATA questions. I d...
  3. Depression + Anxiety as a Nurse

    Check with Catholic Charities. I know our local branch offers income-based counseling, and if you can’t pay anything that is okay, too. It wouldn’t hurt to call. I’m not catholic and I found them very helpful.
  4. Depression + Anxiety as a Nurse

    I’m not sure if sharing links on here is allowed or not, but If you Google “good rx”, you will find a website that offers coupon codes for prescription drugs. And if you ask your doctor, they can sometimes give you a bunch of free samples. If you eve...
  5. Depression + Anxiety as a Nurse

    I start LPN school in January and have been struggling with PPD since the birth of my last child. Some days are harder than others. Quitting, however, only makes me feel worse in the end. Take each day moment by moment. Remember to sleep as much as p...

  8. The Nursing School to Welfare Pipeline

    My heart is in nursing, and that is the field I'm most passionate about. ❤️ If I hadn't stumbled across this thread, I wouldn't have even questioned anything. I truly appreciate reading opinions on both sides. I am going to stay the course and comple...
  9. The Nursing School to Welfare Pipeline

    This is good to know. Thank you! I do think I will see through my first year of the program (LPN) and reassess the market for where we currently live.
  10. The Nursing School to Welfare Pipeline

    I did some searching and found this article on the MN Nurses website (I live in MN). It was eye-opening to say the least. My local hospital always has job openings for nurses in almost every department, but maybe they aren’t really in need after all....
  11. The Nursing School to Welfare Pipeline

    I read through this whole topic yesterday and today between errands and caring for my kids. As someone who has dreamed of being a nurse for the better part of ten years, I have to now wonder what in the world I’m signing myself up for. I’m currently ...
  12. Anyone taking the TEAS soon?!

    I took the TEAS in 2017 and will probably have to take it again this Fall. I scored an 85% overall, so not really great but not bad. I found all of the Crash Course A&P youtube videos to be a HUGE help. I also bought the yellow Mometrix TEAS stud...
  13. LPN or ADN or BSN?

    We just paid off my husband's student loans after him being out of school for 7 years, and we are trying super hard to not go back into debt. I agree that Rasmussen is not a good fit for us. My husband's employer only gives free credits to his depen...
  14. LPN or ADN or BSN?

    Hi everyone! I’ve been a reader and lurker on the site for awhile now and finally decided to ask my first question. ? I have dreamed of being a nurse for the last ten years and have worked hard on finishing up my prerequisites and keeping up my GPA w...
