  1. Thanks everybody for your answers, I really appreciate it! I'm a new nurse going into psych. I'm really nervous and afraid. I feel like I know nothing despite studying my sanity away in nursing school. I'm so scared that I'll be so terrible that I just end up getting pushed around by all the other nurses instead of being helped and eventually, feel forced to quit... I hope it doesn't happen to me, but from everything I've witnessed, it just seems like a sad and common occurrence in nursing... -sigh- But I swear I'm more than willing to learn everything I have to in order to do things right.
  2. Apparently, there's a huge problem with psych patients being readmitted to the hospital for treatment. What's the main reason for it? Most common reason for readmission?

    PVT: Don't Trust the Bad Pop-Ups!

    I took the NCLEX-RN 2 days ago and was so sure I had failed. I panicked early in the exam and stayed that way all throughout it--spending too much time on each question, re-reading the stem and choices, and changing my answers constantly. I was doing everything I was told not to do on the exam. I gave up near the end and hoped to get more questions to prove myself. It stopped at 75 and my heart sank. I was so sure I had failed, but I wanted to try the Pearson Vue Trick for hope. I got the "bad pop-up" after inputting my credit card info correctly so it just confirmed my gut feelings. I didn't want to waste any time for preparing for my second attempt so I went to the BON site to check what I had to do to reapply/retake, but I saw that my RN license was active and issued the day right after my exam. I cried. I hope this little anecdote comforts anyone waiting on their results. It truly is the most nerve-wracking 48 hrs you'll have to endure, but remember, there's always hope--even if the PVT shows you a bad pop-up.
