  1. Retiring In Your 70s

    Not only did I enter nursing when I was older than most I wound up out of work for an extended period of time because of a health crisis. Even though I'm fine now I'm a long way off from where I might have been had I been able to work all those years...
  2. One Atheist FAQ Answered

    Once upon a time I worked with a nurse who did so force prayer, requested or not, on people. She was written up, counseled, lectured, demoted- disciplined for it many, many times but the minute she seemed reformed, the very second everyone's back was...
  3. ALREADY starting to feel "burnt out" or am I overreacting?

    Well maybe it's not nursing so much as it is the particular nursing job you have or the amount you are working. Trauma care is very demanding. Maybe while your children are young you'd be happier doing something else and working 8 hour shifts instead...
  4. Too Much Time on Their Hands

  5. Becoming a nurse is no longer an option for me?

    I think it's wrong to judge the mother, we don't know all the facts. It could be her mom is just a terrible person attempting to try and keep her from accomplishing her goals for some selfish reason, but it could also be that the mother has a good re...
  6. Q about vacations/days off

    Though I suppose you would probably be allowed some sick days or time off for bereavement I wouldn't think as a part time school nurse you would get a lot. Also why would you need to pull your child out of school and interrupt his education to go to...
  7. Working Full-time for the first couple of semesters?

    I don't know about working as an RN student but I did it while working towards my LPN. Since I didn't have a car I had to spend 15 hours a week on the bus just to get to school and back. I was in school M-F for about 6 hours a day. Generally spent tw...
  8. HELP! 2nd time taking NCLEX-PN. I feel so unprepared.

    The best advice I have to offer is if you know you are not prepared, which you do because of your low scores on the practice exams, and you you are not ready to take the test don't take it. There's nothing you can do this close to the deadline to fix...
  9. 4th time test taker (I hate to admit it)

    I think you rushed, crammed for your second attempt way too soon. I've always heard nursing instructors advise against students who've failed their boards, whether LPN or RN, giving in to the urge to re-take the NCLEX too soon. Most I've known over ...
  10. Thinking of going back into nursing....

    I don't see any reason why you shouldn't get back into nursing. I went back after being away much longer and if I could do it I don't see any reason why you can't. During those six years did you keep your license current, place it on inactive status ...
  11. Becoming a nurse is no longer an option for me?

    I skimmed so I might have missed it but did anybody mention Job Corp? Job Corp is throughout the country but different campuses in different places offer different training. Some centers only offer CNA but others offer LPN. Basically when you join J...
