    1st Sem. Nursing student: Shaking in my scrubs

    They say there is some truth in fiction so You can watch a few movies about Nurse or medical school like The White Parade (1934), Four Girls In White (1939), Gross Anatomy (1989), Patch Adams (1998), Bad Medicine (1985). Then remember that the Professor is going to teach you what you need to know to pass the class; and to follow the good advice the other posters have already stated.

    Most certifications that you will need are not available until after you become a full nurse. However some things you can do now is phlebotomy certification, FEMA Self Study Certifications ICS 100c, ICS 700b., EMT-B., CDC also has some online CE courses that may be helpful. You can also talk to ED Director at your hospital and see if you can attend there in house training

    Sunday Breakfast Recipes

    I think you want easy and low in price. Peanut butter toast. If the peanut butter is served heated a it changes the taste and texture which will make it new and exciting to children. Take sour cream and mix it with ranch dressing. This will make a thick flavorful dip serve with cut vegetables. Eggs and fried lunch meat and potatoes. The lunch meat (depending on what you buy) is cheaper than bacon and you will have more per package than other breakfast meats. This can be served sperate in a wrap, and so on.

    HELP! New grad ADN w no experience.

    Include things that your potential employer will not have to pay for. For example where I am a fingerprint card is required to work as a nurse. Having obtained one for schooling including it on the resume makes it more appealing.

    Need help with manual blood pressure readings

    While in school I had trouble with some stethoscopes so I would use only one ear and place the other ear piece outside of my ear and was able to get the readings right every time. There was another trick I used. I would fans to make a noise then use a TV or radio set low usually 8 or less on the volume level then focus on listening. I got better at tuning out other noise and hearing the low sounds I want to hear. maybe one of these things will work for you.

    army/AF/navy — advice for nursing student needed

    The big ones Doctors Without Boarders, Peace Core, want people with education a lot higher than a CNA. The WHO does have internships. Otherwise a religious organizations might have something. You could become an EMT for emergency experience but check with a recruiter to know if that will help you or not. As for Military Healthcare Volunteer work I only know of the VA.

    Help with extra class

    You can ask your adviser for a class to raise your grade point average they usually have a few that are good for financial aid. A computer class like access and excel, sign language, a physical education are useful.
  13. If one freezes in place and does not move the T-Rex will not see you and move on. However this trick does not work with the nursing student that has come to practice taking vitals.
