    advice on staying stable in nursing school

    Hi madisonlong17 I would recommend talking to a nutritionist for foods to nourish the mind, body and soul. Helpful relaxation techniques such as Nasal breathing with long exhalation, rajyoga meditation, Slow pranayama .Also Bible reading and prayer....the serenity prayer read it every day :) Please talk to someone thats trustworthy and supportive that can help you take steps toward changing your perception on how you view yourself and the world around you. *hugs* Hope this helps :)

    Another Tragedy

    I am heart broken by this incident. There were a lot of early signs. We need more training on situational awareness and identifying early signs collectively. Not only for school staff but also parents and close relatives to recognize early signs.

    Thinking about quitting nursing school..

    Hi Champagneg, I have stumbled across your post and I want to say to you that I can tell that you are a survivor. The thought of asking for help from others is what makes a good nurse to a great nurse. That is because many of us can sometimes make early judgement and think that we know everything. But as Shakespeare says "A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool" I am not calling you a fool or anything but this is one of the reasons why we have a lot of medical misdiagnosis in the world today. I have also struggled in LVN school and wanted to give up so I feel what you are feeling and know what you are going through 100%. I see that you are asking for advice and are open to resources so I can see that this is your second time taking this course. You enjoy clinical (which tells me that you do not hate nursing and found something you like within the scope of practice) but have a challenge with nursing exams. You have a program that uses powerpoints and you have a med surg book and nclex book to practice questions but yet have a low grade in the class. Is this correct? Please forgive me if I am wrong. What stands out to me the most is this is your second time taking this class. Again i applaud you for not giving up on yourself and now asking for help. The only question I would ask myself would be what caused me to not ask for help sooner and how can I get better equipped to be successful before I take the class again? Going to another school may or may not help because you may end of in the same situation? So its not about changing the location or environment and instead changing how to use the tools you need in this environment. The big take away is as a future nurse you will always have to learn new things with little resources. (take your first job for instance) You may not be able to quit so easily and go to another job as many nurses on here have poured there hearts out about how hard it is to find a job. You just need the right support system and ways to help you use the tools you need.THERE IS A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL Not passing exams have many factors which you have not shared too much such as do you have a strong knowledge in sciences(patho and A&P), do you understand the nclex test plan on nscbn website, do you know how to answer nclex questions and reword the question, do you have a strong knowledge in nursing fundamentals (ABC and ADPIE). Here are three great books I recommend. Two of the books you can get from the library. One you can get free online somewhere. The Kaplan strategies book is great at teaching how to answer nclex questions and reword the question. Get really good at this FIRST. Then build on more test taking strategies. Did you know that every nclex questions focuses on certain principles that you can beat the nursing exam at its own game? It all goes back to bloom taxonomy- knowledge, understanding, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, evaluating, client needs ( safe and effective care, health promotion, etc) reduction risk,etc) Saunders test taking strategies book is great because it gives you insight on the principles that every nclex question. Even breaks it down to topics. so you can ask yourself. what is the topic of the question? Last is la charity pda book. Great for understanding ABCs. Last to brush up on A&P and patho (Youtube is great) These books are worth while because many nurses have used these same books I have recommended to pass the nclex after graduation. Hope this helps. sorry for the long post

    Serious Mental Illness: How Can We Help?

    Great post! I have a family member with mental illness and I have seen things that you question in the world like are human beings more important than profit? I was watching the National Geographic Channel one day and could not believe that there was an experiment that was funded billions of dollars to collect data to test dolphins to see if we can communicate to aliens one day (seriously). Again I ask the world what is more important humans or profit? All this technology and numerous resources available yet it's not used for the greater good.
