  1. Last semester, I had chronic health problems (my school’s equivalent of Med-Surg 2). I swear the only reason I passed that class is because of RegisteredNurseRN’s YouTube videos. I do not learn from reading at all, so her videos were really a blessing to me. Is there anything like her videos but for Pediatrics and OB?

    Sorry, just so I understand correctly, how are you getting to 17 points with a 70 on the teas?

    Sure! I had 10 points overall I believe. I’m now going into 4th semester, which is OB and Peds. I took the TEAS test to get in and I believe my score was an 84 or an 85.
  5. Hey there! I’m a third semester ADN student in Myrtle Beach. I’m currently looking into Greenville Memorial Hospitals Residency program. I’ve been researching their website of course and also trying to read through Glassdoor and similar sites, but the info is pretty limited. If you hear anything, let me know and I’ll do the same

    Overturning a grade is it possible?

    I really, really, really, really hope this is sarcasm

    Overturning a grade is it possible?

    I really can’t believe you want your grade overturned because you were late *twice*, used your cell phone in the wrong area, and had patient complaints. We get sent home from clinical if we even have our cell phones on our person, being late twice is an automatic clinical absence (and you’re only allowed one clinical absence per semester), and depending on what the patient complaints were that could easily have us booted from the program. I honestly don’t know what you’re expecting here....

    Blood Titer Help!

    My varicella and MMR came back negative. I had to get a booster of each. However, from what you’ve stated it sounds like you have to complete the series again. I’m sure though that there is some kind of form to say you’ll adhere to the dosing schedule and submit proof as you get the vaccines and accept the risk (yadda yadda yadda). My school had those forms for people who weren’t previously vaccinated for Hep B.

    Possible move to SC need advice

    Hey there! I’m just a student so I can’t say anything about getting the license, but I do live in Myrtle, so I can answer some general questions about jobs and such. Office jobs-including insurance companies-are basically nonexistent here. There are a few small firms here and some of them may deal with workman’s comp, but the problem is that jobs like that fill up in an instant and no one ever leaves them because they are basically unheard of here. Beyond that, most of the firms are so small that I don’t think they would have a staff RN to begin with and they’d probably just outsource that work to a nursing staff agency, but you’d have to look on the company website to be sure on that one. Let me know if I can answer any other questions! I’ve lived here most of my life so I have a pretty good lay of the land with different areas and the pros and cons of the different neighborhoods and such.
  11. HGTC has an LPN-RN bridge that is completely points based. It’s a 3 semester program.

    Crisis averted

    So, to start out, I’m about 3/4 of the way done with my first semester of my ADN program. Yesterday, I had to miss clinical for a new job orientation and I had to turn in my clinical paperwork from the prior week. This is where I made my major, giant, stupid mistake. I sent my clinical paperwork to my instructor through email. But forgot to redact my patients names. When I realized what I did, I had an internal freak out. I was so nervous and upset I didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t focus on my orientation at all yesterday. Finally, today, I hesitantly picked up the phone and called my instructor during her office hours. I was literally in tears with her on the phone upset that I did such a stupid thing. Half of my tears were because I knew I violated the patients trust and the other half were fear that I was going to be kicked out of the program. Thankfully, my instructor was very understanding and destroyed the documents and just let me know to not let it happen again. Ive heard so many horror stories of people getting kicked out of nursing school for much, much less and I hope that I could add a little positivity to the mix. This is a huge learning experience for me and I know I will never make that mistake again. Thanks for reading

    Pre-Requisite Nursing Course with LAB?

    So I looked into Direct Entry MSN programs before settling on getting my ADN then transitioning to BSN and eventually MSN. What I learned that “not expensive” and “Direct Entry MSN” do not go in the same sentence. Ever. If you want to go the direct entry route, you’re most likely looking at 80k+ for that degree.

    Summer Nursing Classes

    Hey Dom! You'll probably get a better response if you make your own thread about this in the students section or in the NY (?) nursing thread. Hope I helped
  15. Okay, I agree that everyone's experience is going to be different. However, I don't agree with anyone that's telling you to shut up about how you perceive nursing school. Sure, don't go bragging to everyone in your class about how easy it is, but that doesn't mean that you should ever feel like you have to "shut up" about it. Honestly, most people are probably just jealous that it's not that easy for them.

    I Don't Know What to DO

    If I were you, I’d make your clinical instructor aware whether your classmates agree to give you rides or not. Crap happens and rides can fall through at the last second. Better to make your instructor aware now than show up late one day because your ride fell through and seem like you’re making excuses.
