    Any Western Kentucky nurses?

    Stumbled onto your posts about moving to Marshall County. I have lived in Marshall County my entire life and I am working as an RN at Lourdes. If you have any questions, please let me know.

    Need humor on death and dying

    The best story I have is about a patient I had. He was inpatient hospice. He had been doing fairly well considering and then suddenly one afternoon, his breathing changed. His breaths became more shallow and with periods of apnea. This man who was no...

    NCLEX freak out

    I'm with you! I just took the NCLEX-RN today and it stopped at 75 questions. I really had no clue after a while. I am just numb. I always scored over 1000 on any HESI I ever took. This test was just mind-blowing. I have never felt so inadequate...

    Alternative meds? You'll never believe this one!!

    We were taught the cabbage leaf thing in nursing school. You can put them in the freezer too before putting them on in order to ease the pain.

    Rineheart Review

    Has anyone taken the Rineheart Review? Did it seem to help? I am feeling a bit overwhelmed at this point. I have always scored high on the HESI exams and never really had any problems. I'm beginning to get nervous now. I take the NCLEX in less t...

    Need input please!!

    It is my opinion that difficulties and tragic events in the past shape us to be the people we are today. It is in how we react to these hardships. Does this stop you from becoming a caring nurse...or does it enable you to better understand the diff...

    What's Your Best Nursing Ghost Story?

    When I worked in a LTC facility, we had the same reports of little children. Several of the residents would start asking us about who the children were. None of us ever saw any kids, but the residents would swear they were there. Some of them woul...

    Am I too old?

    You are not too old! I was 28 when I started on my Associate Degree. I had 3 kids (aged 10, 9, and 4). The two year program actually took me three years. I had never attended college before, so I had to take all my pre-reqs. I spent the first yea...

    Is my 'plan' advisable by others?

    Sounds like you've got it. I started as a CNA in a LTC facility then moved to a hospital. After two years as a CNA, I started attending a community college. I spent the first year on pre-reqs so that I could devote my time to nursing when I entere...

    A little humor. You might be from Illinois if...

    Those are so funny. My dad is from Illinois. He moved to Kentucky where he met my mom and lived here ever since. I remember as kids going to grandma's and everyone staring at us on the playground because we talked "funny." Same thing happens now ...
