  1. Hi, I noticed you answered a question about touro college. I have been accepted into the dual degree program at molloy and the nursing program for touro. Both of which will take me about 2 years to complete. I wanted to get some advice since you went to touro college because I am having a hard time choosing which school to attend. Thank you

    Failed the nclex the 2nd time... feeling down

    Hi, I failed NCLEX first time... Took 265 questions and left the exam feeling miserable! Was so upsetting to think of all the hard work I put into studying and preparing just to fail... But, I passed the second time with 75 questions! Just remain positive and focus on your weak points when studying again. I know its hard to think of what specific areas you may be weak in - but when I was doing practice questions (whether it was Kaplan, Saunders, ATI etc..) if I was getting specific types of questions wrong, I wrote down why - for example if it was the information I didn't know or the type of question I messed up on... And then I went back and studied that. It helped for me... Just remain positive, Dont give up!!

    NYC new grad - When to apply?

    I agree that the earlier the better, but keep in mind that these days you can not get a job pending your NCLEX. Hospitals want you to be licensed before they hire you... and that may take a little time after you graduate. But of course, calling the hospitals and talking to recruiters is your best bet. Good luck!!

    Priority Questions

    I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out a certain type of question I have difficulty with. Its those questions that give you 4 patients and you have to decide which one to see first. Or a home health nurse has to decide which patient to visit first. Sometimes I can get it, like if the patient is having difficulty breathing, go to that one... But alot of times I just cant get it. Can anyone help me figure out how to answer these?? Am i the only one that finds these difficult?!?

    Failed NCLEX-RN for 2nd time!!! So Sad!

    Hi, I also just failed the NCLEX after taking 265 questions.. I was so frustrated after I left there! When I got my official results in the mail, it says I was "near passing standard" in everything except pharmacology which i was above passing standard in. Any suggestions on how to go about studying again??? I feel like if I keep doing what I was doing, it won't help because it obviously didn't help the first time.

    Any info on Touro College?

    Hi there, Yes in my opinion it has been worth it. It is expensive, but you get through the program in 2 years and none of the hassles that you deal with at community colleges. As far as studying and reading, that depends on the person of course. I find with certain topics, I have to study and read more to get it down. Others, once the teacher talks about it in class, it sticks. Get what Im saying? But you should at least be able to devote a little time each night to get some reading done. The program starts in June 2009, not the Fall. Hope that helps a little!

    in need of a hearing impaired stethscope!

    Cardionics E-Scope® II thats what I use - and I have 80% hearing loss in both ears. Works great and my classmates enjoy using it as well, because it REALLY magnifies every sound. Also has volume control, a little more pricey than the one mentioned in the other post, but I think its worth it. Good luck!

    Job Fair?

    thanks so much for your words of encouragement! now maybe you, or someone else, can help me with one other thing? HOW do i make a resume being as im only a student and have no other experience?? Do i include the courses I've taken? The clinical hours I've done? I also have some volunteer work that was completed as a requirement for my nursing program. So I should include that too right? I'm just not sure if I'll end up putting too much useless information or not enough information. Also, I already have one letter of recommendation from a Clinical Instructor.. but it's from last semester. Is it still good to keep that with my resume? Ok well - thanks again for any help you give me... it is very much appreciated!!

    Job Fair?

    hi all Just a question that hopefully someone can give me their opinion on... Im still in nursing school, graduating in June. Was wondering if its too early to attend a job fair or not? What do you think? I thought maybe it would be good just to meet some people at least... Just curious Thanks!

    please everyone help me.

    hey there im sorry I dont have more information about CSI, I know that because of the amount of students that apply each semester - the higher your grades the better. So I agree with the others, take some Pre-reqs - get your foot in the door. See how it goes from there. Don't be in a rush though. It took me 5 years to get where I am today - and I'm still young and have plenty of time to enjoy my career Good Luck with whatever decision you make!
