  2. jealousy/avoidance of top students?

    We also have people in our class who try to make everyone think that they are doing exceptional, but really aren't doing as well as they pretend. Not only was it going on in our nursing classes, but has carried over into summer courses with the same...
  3. It is very possible to attend school full time, work full time, and raise a family. I am living proof that it is possible, and I'm not a young student....I'm 43 years old. As a matter of fact, I would say that roughly 50% of my class works full ti...
  4. New Student in Sept..

    Enjoy your summer. Not sure how you will be able to study when you don't have the course outline or syllabus. One poster mentioned studying math....that's a great idea. We have to pass our math tests at the beginning of each semester or we fail ou...

  6. ATI, PDA, and stethoscope.

    If you don't have to buy the ATI books, then don't do it. There are a multitude of good NCLEX style books that you can purchase that have CD's with thousands of questions for practice. We HAD to purchase the ATI books and I don't think they're wort...

  8. I just can't do it....

  9. No more internet access

    As a student, the last unit that I was on in a VERY BIG city hospital was filled with nurses and techs who spent a lot of time online (shopping at Target for Christmas gifts, playing games, pricing new cars, just to name a few). One patient's daugh...

  13. Medical Transcription RN

    Hi there, I was an MT for 20+ years and am now pursuing a nursing career. I worked from home for 13 of those 20 years and made a very good income. Honestly, I will probably make about the same as a graduate nurse as I made as an MT/medical editor....
  14. Filing Aggrievance

    In our program, we get written up on the day of a clinical "unsafe" situation......if we receive 2 of these unsafes then we are basically out of the program. It really takes a lot to be written up, but the one MAIN reason to get that unsafe is for a...
  15. Psych nursing as a new grad?

    We just had a very similar conversation at clinicals with our instructor, and she said basically that if you go into psych nursing and later decide to go into another specialty it would be difficult....but that skills can be re-learned and for us not...
