    Math help! When to round up.

    One value to the right of the tenths spot makes sense!....thank you so much!

    Math help! When to round up.

    I understand that rounding 2.5mls to 3mls is giving more medication that required. Our instructors tell us to round to the nearest tenth spot....I guess that is what is messing me up!
  5. When can you round up on a dosage problem? Why can you round 0.75mls to 0.8mls but cannot round 2.5mls. I know you round to the nearest tenth.... isn't the tenth spot the first number after the decimal or do I have it all wrong?

    Vanderbilt Pay Scale

    New grads make about $2-$3 less per hour that other hospitals around. It is a teaching hospital so you make less but you do gain a lot of experience. You can make up for the pay difference if you are going to school...say BSN or MSN..because they pay 12 credit hours per year....
  8. We are nurses, hear us ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAR!!!

    Nervous for a new semester...

    I would share your worries with your clinical instructor just to give her a heads up. Explain that you have never had a reaction like that before. It is ok for us nurses to let our *super-de-grossing* powers slack a little. There is still one thing that totally makes me gag everytime.... it is ok. We are human!.....take this semester with Charge..you can do it! K
  10. Thank you! Good luck with everything you are doing as well!....First day tomorrow and my first test Wednesday (dosage calculations)...whew!!!! K
  11. Tomorrow starts my first day of my last semester (let's pray to God)... I am really scared, nervous but excited at the same time! I want to wish everyone going into nursing school this semester a GOOD LUCK! K

    Hospital tuition reimbursement?

    If you work full time at Vanderbilt they will pay 100% of 12 hours per year. In addition to that, they pay 70% of a 3 hour class per semester. You are not required to work for them afterwards, just maintain a c average and keep 60 hours of work in a 2 week pay period. I know St. Thomas offers reimbursement but if I remember correctly, it is not as much as Vanderbilt.

    Any information on Aquinas?

    I think anywhere you go these days you need to have a pretty good GPA and NET score. Aquinas is just as competitive to get into as the rest - but many may choose not to go there due to the price (although Belmont is much higher). As far as your pre-reqs, I would take them at a community college before you go to Aquinas. Once you are at Aquinas you cannot go to another college to take a class...your stuck! But, I love Aquinas. Go for it!
