    Failed NCLEX-RN 3rd time :(

    I finally passed after failing twice. I swear by Saunders, do the CD every day there are over 1000 questions, do them over and over and i love that it gave me feedback, as to why i picked the wrong question. I swear It helped me pass my third time, I was also devastated telling people I failed because I was an LPN at the time for 4 years. NO what? Screw what other people think just try your best and do NOT listen to gossipy negative people. If you passed your nursing classes you can surely pass the NCLEX. Study Saunders over and over again, Do everything on the disk and the book. Good luck to you......

    Potential LPN, Too worried to attend school?

    If you are having anxiety already, you might regret it. Being a nurse is very stressfull.

    Working crazy hours

    I can't do this anymore

    OMG find another job. I hated my previous job and thought that, this is life in nursing. I found another job and I love it. Please do not give up after all of your hard work. You do not have to like miserable, obese people for nursing. I hope the person that posted that has 10 very obese people that she has to shower "as a nurse" and then get back with me......

    im hating nursing rn

    I am sad that you feel "stuck". Please pick another career soon, because if I were in long term care and you were taking care of me under your own duress, I would not be happy.

    A Letter to Myself - My First Day on an Oncology Floor

    It is good to be humble.... God in his infinite wisdom did not give these people cancer. You are born with genes, some are awesome with long lives ahead of them and some are short, due to who knows what?? Live life to the fullest everyday, be thankful and kind to everyone... Most of all, as you already know, be humble.

    How many 12 hour shifts per week

    I work 12 houer shifts, mon, tues, wed, fri, sat and sun. I have the following week off. One week on and one week off. I am so lucky!! I really do not feel burnt out on the weeks that I work. Life is what you make of it. I can have someome dying, someone with COP struggling to breath, ect.... all in one nights shift. All that I can say again is that your world is what you make it.

    Fake nursing/CNA licenses or what?

    Right!!!!!!!!! Mind your own business..... What kind of person would look up that information??? How about volunteer your time instead of getting into your co workers business??
