    Should I get both ACLS and PALS?

    I believe you should get it. Do anything in your power to optimize your chances. I too am a new grad and I will be getting my PALS because I really want Pediatric nursing job but will also get my ACLS. Good luck we new nurses have it hard.

    Your first semester/quarter grades

  12. Thanks so much for the advice. I do have a NCLEX review because I am in Advance Med Surg. I find it more difficult to master but I am going to take your suggestions. I did not do well on my Neuro Exam I got a 78 so my average is 79.5. I need to pass the final with at least a 78 and do well on the ATI in order for me to pass the exam. I really appreciate everyone taking the time to offer me advice. I will update you all. Thanks so much!!!!
  13. Thanks so much for taking the time to answer. I really appreciate this. Yes I will follow those strategies that you mentioned. I will try not to focus on it being a test and think of it as reviewing. I am now going to be studying for my final and my comprehensive ATI exam. Thanks again!!!

    Studying for RN program

    Oh boy I know the feeling I am dealing with that right now. I am in Med-Surg II (critical care) and its kicking my butt. I use Saunders Nclex-Review Book and I also have the Q&A by Lippincott. The Saunders helps with the application like Nursing Interventions and gives a clear and concise information about the topic. Does your school use Ati? Also I would say read the beginning of the Saunders Book it has great testing strategies to aid you in making the correct answer choice. My problem is anxiety I will know all the information but when it comes down to the test I can't remember or think. I am trying to find relaxation techniques to assist me. What is passing in your program? As for me at my school its 80. Hope what I said is helpful.
