  1. What is the Law for Nurses taking breaks?

    Omg. You guys get lunches? And breaks? I can't remember the last time I got to sit down while on the clock (besides paperwork once the next shift came in) with the exception of kneeling on the floor in front of a resident for a dressing change. *sigh...
  2. Tattoo's and School

    We are not supposed to have visible tattoos. I have one on my inner wrist and I cover it with two bandages. I have forgotten many times (I don't always remember I have it) and no one has ever said anything. I am the only person in my class who has a ...
  3. Young RN?

    I hear this all the time and I'm 28!!! Good for you for knowing what you want and going for it, no matter what age.
  4. Just wanted to put feelers out to see who else is going to be in Florida for the National Student Nurse's Association National Conference in April?? AP
  5. Nursing School Drama queens

    All I can say is that this is why when people ask me how I did on exams, whether I did well or not, my response is always, "Good!" It is no one's business how I score on exams. And if one person knows, the whole class knows. I learned that the hard ...
  6. is my school normal? skills teaching for clinicals

    We got textbooks and videos and that was it. We had opportunities to go into the lab and ask our instructor to demonstrate skills or help us out and those who didn't take advantage of that were S.O.L.
  7. Advice to Students: say "thank you"

    It's amazing how far a simple "thank you" can get you. I always thank the nurses when we leave the floor from a shift of clinical, thank my instructor each shift as well... and always thank my patients for allowing me to care for them because I reali...
  8. Anyone with a medical background before NS?

    I worked as a home health care aid before entering nursing school. It has given me a very small advantage in being comfortable working with patients and having some basis of knowledge in different areas.
  9. Medical Terminology?

    I am a second year student and I am taking it this semester in order to keep my full-time status for financial aid and scholarship money. Hoping it will be pretty easy now and have heard from lots of students that it was helpful.
  10. So I was speeding through my pharm calculations from my Peds course pack before school starts next week and I found a section that has me stumped. I can't find anything like it in my pharm or Math for Meds book so I can't find a formula or way of sol...
  11. How do you wear your hair for clinicals?

    I noticed SO many people wearing their hair down but it gets in my face and seems unprofessional. I wear my hair in a ponytail every time with my bangs bobby-pinned back in some fashion. I actually get compliments on how it looks quite often. Won't ...
  12. Who else is having fun with school supplies?

    I got very excited about buying my supplies my first year and this year I have decided that I am more interested in saving myself some money and getting a better pair of shoes for clinicals. I have lots of folders, binders, pens, etc. and will only b...
  13. What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby?

    Oh man how could I FORGET?? My own step-brother... first name Jon middle name Wayne. And my mom and step dad each have the first name of someone on Roseanne and the last name Conner. *blinks*
  14. What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby?

    At different times in my life I went to school with the following: Crystal and Shanda Leer, Mercedes Rolling, Tekkila (Pronounced like "Tequila"), and a Shevi (Like "Chevy"). My younger brother had a Mercedes Carr. My best friend's aunt works for the...
  15. Oy, the kvetching!

    I love the willingness and eagerness to learn! Even when I think someone asked a really "duh" question, I figure at least they asked! I love the extra curiosity that the really young students have and I enjoy that I can ask some of the older students...
