    Reviewing tests

    We review ours immediately after we take it, since it is computerized. Then we can ask our professor questions in class.

    friendly advise

    There are so many different areas of nursing, your friend might be perfect for one and you wouldn't know. You don't tell her she's not cut out for nursing, because you haven't the slightest idea if she is or not. It's not your place anyway.

    Is it worth taking time off from school if I dont love it?

    I think if you take time off, you probably won't go back. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. If nursing isn't for you, then leave it. Find something else that will make you happy! With that being said, it would probably be a better idea to just finish the program and then decide if it's what you want to do. You have already made it this far, it's not a long program, just finish! There are so manybarea's of nursing that you can get into, you might find one that you like.

    Blew a vein during clinical

    I wouldn't worry about it. I had an experienced nurse try to draw blood from me after I had my daughter and she blew my vein and bruised up both my hands trying to get a good stick! You just need more practice, which will happen after school when you get a job.
  6. Thanks for the feedback! I definitely double check before giving food or drink to a patient. When ambulating it's taking the patient to the bathroom or to shower, which is ok'd by the pct so I think it's alright.
  7. What would be considered inappropriate independence? For example, if I had answered call lights with permission and then all the nurses on the floor were busy with their patients and I answer a call light on my own accord, is that ok? I worry about over stepping boundaries as a student nurse sometimes.

    Quit nursing school for Radiology?

    Hello all! I am in my first semester of an ADN program and I'm feeling so overwhelmed. I didn't know mental breakdowns could occur this soon in nursing school. Well anyway, I was thinking about applying to the radiology program at my school again (I was accepted early this year but declined and went with nursing) and I'm just torn on what to do! I don't know if they will even accept me again because then it would affect their graduation numbers for the nursing program. How do I overcome this feeling of being defeated by school? Any advice or words of encouragement is welcome!

    How is history online? I'm also taking history but I'm going to class and it's so interesting! We don't use a book at all and just take notes from lecture. I don't have to know dates, don't have to write papers and the final is not comprehensive, so I'm happy! Is govt pretty easy? I signed up for both govt classes over summer.

    If you don't mind a half mile walk, you can park at the trinity river campus. It's still pretty packed there too, but I always find a spot for my classes.

    That's great that you've already completed your core classes! Thanks for posting this link!

    No I went to UTA's RN to BSN program website and have been basing my classes off of that. I think most programs you will need basic classes like History, English II, Govt, Math. Things like that. I will do UTA after I graduate because they don't require chemistry for their BSN if you are already an RN.

    It is NOT a requirement. They will go over the same stuff that's online and answer any questions you have!

    I was wondering where you do your clinicals at? Do you get experience in different areas of nursing?

    I read an awesome tip from someone in TCC nursing school who said to take classes that will apply to your BSN while you can so I've been taking a few while I wait to start the nursing program! (If I'm accepted!)

    Hello Everyone!! My name is Ashley. I was reading through some of you guys scores and oh my gosh y'all have good grades! Makes me kinda nervous! Anywho, my grades are: A&P I - B A&P II - A Micro - A Hesi - 91.5 I have also applied to Radiology and Respiratory as my back up options and received an email today saying I was a top candidate for Radiology and to attend a mandatory meeting next Thursday. Did anyone else apply to other programs? Hopefully we all get in to nursing!
