    Accreditation Confusion

    The state of CA-BON approved your school to operate LA College of Nursing and Allied Health Read what's an ACEN. Read more about accreditation. Take time to read this, please. Your NSG school is ACEN accredited!

    Those are big problems.

    Dismissal From Nursing Program - Is all hope lost?

    The students don't just get dismissed easily from the program. If they were removed from the program for the slightest problem, the room would be empty.

    Dismissal From Nursing Program - Is all hope lost?

    Many patients were/are abused. Did you think about them that they'll probably trigger your fears?

    Dismissal From Nursing Program - Is all hope lost?

    If they ask about the reasons for your dismissal, you should tell the truth. I didn't experience it. I let the other one go and focus on this one next to my home.

    Dismissal From Nursing Program - Is all hope lost?

    I wouldn't volunteer it. Nursing is a small world. Be nice and fair next time. Nothing to be ashamed of being truthful and honest but being an a$$.
  7. I'm FT employed and in the nursing program. While I was waiting to be accepted, I took some classes at the upper level and worked. Enjoy your school and time. It will come. When you're in, you'll miss your idle time. 😆 Good luck to you all those who are waiting to apply.
  8. Case managers are not always with patients or clients. I shadowed a case manager in a hospital for 10 hours. It was complex for me.
  9. Maybe work for health insurance.

    How Should I Respond to a Bad Clinical Eval?

    If the instructor resists your request, email your program director.

    How much are your nursing school expenses?

    My textbooks, gas, insurance, uniform, and other goodies were included in my budget for the RN program. If I break down my tuition fees for the RN program, it's less than 8K. For my general ED, I completed around 140 credit units. I'd say that I did okay for my educational investment. The wisest decision I ever did for myself.

    Achieve Test Prep for CNA to RN

    Achieve wants your money badly. Anyway, shadowing does help your wife, but there's no way that someone can credit her for that for licensure.

    Calculating Intake and Output

    Do you know how to use MS Excel? Try to learn how to utilize it. It's quicker if you know how to manipulate the spreadsheet. I utilized in the past in medical billing.

    How much are your nursing school expenses?

    $11,000 for my 2-year RN program (and about $20,000 for my general education.)

    Achieve Test Prep for CNA to RN

    All the schools I know don't care about your premium. We all get through the selection process. In some nursing schools, after failing mathematics twice and also must pass it with a grade B or higher, the student is out. All the sciences must be B and greater. Failing 2x or 3x, the student is out. So failing one of the classes is enough to disqualify a student from applying. Another challenge is to pass a nursing entrance exam. In my experience, I'm a student nurse, this was limited to three tries. I passed the first try, but I wanted to be competitive. I took it and scored higher. In some nursing schools, the applicants can only take, for example, TEAS-ATI, 2x otherwise try to pass at 3x and find the nursing schools that accept 3x attempts. When a student is officially accepted and admitted into the nursing program, the medication calculation must be passed at 90% to 100%. In my school, 2 mistakes are a fail. After failing it, depending on which nursing school your wife is in, she can probably retake 2x or 3x. She fails it, she will be withdrawn from the program and reapply. This is also limited. FYI, I'm not underestimating your wife's intelligence. If she can wing everything in one year including her RN, let me know. I'll clone her. Even with a quarterly class, I don't even know how she will magically complete the general education alone. 🤔
