    one semester of chemistry costs $1000?

    I think it really depends on the school. My cost for Chem (4c.h.) was over 2k, because my school is a private one. The books was silly expensive too and the prof didn't particularly like the text.

    For all pre-nursing students

    Served over 10yrs in the military. I think I'll be okay. I try not to absorb too much negative energy. School is stressful enough without taking on someone else's views and generalizations. I know it's not going to be tea and roses. Just like I did grunt work in the beginning of my first career, I expect to start at the bottom again. Most of the people I'm in school with are on the same level of thinking. I have no clue what type of nursing I truly want to do. I'm open to what comes. I know where I'd like to end up, but I'm open to whatever road will get me there.

    Chemistry Fall 2008

    I'm on my second week and I'm falling behind already. I didn't have Chem in H.S. so it's like he's speaking french to me. I'm trying really hard not to get frustrated:cry:, I meet with my tutor today at 5. Wish me luck and please send me smart-chemistry-chick vibes:heartbeat I bought the chemistry for dummies workbook, I'm still confuseded (yes I meant to add the extra e d, because that is how confused I am) I can do this, I will do this! ETA: It's not all doom and gloom guys and gals, my prof rocks and my tutor is free. I'm finding the silver lining!

    Schools lack means to graduate more nurses

    Not everyone is meant to be a teacher. Many people don't WANT to teach. Seems like the pace for teaching and the pressure to teach wouldn't sit well with people. I know nurses teach patients and their families, but teaching future nurses is a whole other ball of wax.

    Caught stealing drugs

    People keep calling it diverting, is this nursing PC for stealing? Not being snarky but not sure why it's not just called stealing. I'm sure there are times when medical professional steal drugs to sell them, they may not always be abusing them.

    "Women Are Catty"

    I've found that any where there is a large number of women, the claws seem to come out. I try very hard to check myself when I among a group of women. I do a lot of self talk "gee do I really need to point out her polish is chipped and her hair is ugly?" Even if I think it I won't say it, I try to stay positive. Women can be BRUTAL, I try really hard not to be one of them or feed into any ugliness that may arise. Now if it's just me and my BFF we are catty as hell with each other:clown: We don't treat people badly, but when we're together we just let it all hang out.

    How many nurses say they want to be a CRNA?

    It is something that I've thought about. There are so many specialties it's hard to narrow it down. My friends that are in school aren't considering CRNA...one wants to teach nursing, one wants to do peds and another wants to become a midwife. My main focus is just getting into nursing school, but I have a 5yr plan. Grad school is a part of that plan. I still need to narrow it down:banghead::loveya:

    accelerated BSN online

    no tx tech offers a program in her area which is not lubbock. i don't want to identify the location as there aren't many people in her class (less than 40 i believe) she does have to go to lubbock 2x for orientation, but she is being given a preceptor (they call them coaches) at her local hospital. she starts her program in august. she's so stoked and i'm so proud of her.:redbeathe

    accelerated BSN online

    Her program is offered only at a few locations in Texas. Her "class" work will be online, but her clinicals are at the local hospital. I don't think TX tech offers the program outside of the state. Sorry if there was any confusion.
