    Checking vitals on staff

    Thank you all for your comments. I know in nclex study guide and in my nclex exam we are not suppose to assess non-patients but to send them to ER if needed.

    Checking vitals on staff

    Hi, Are we allowed to check for example, the kitchen staff blood pressure if he feels ill? Or do we need to send him straight to the ER downstairs? When I was studying for my nclex exam before I remember we are not suppose to check other people's vitals except for our patients due to liability.

    PVT 2016

    I meant she is saying just wait 48 hours for the accurate result.

    PVT 2016

    That's what I thought too, but it happened to me. My classmates who got the good pop up, passed and those who got the cc page, failed. My case was rare, I got the good pop up and then the bad.

    PVT 2016

    Justbeachynurse is right. I took the nclex 12/30/15 and got the good pop up 4 hours after the exam. Checked it again later that evening and to the next morning and still got the good pop up. The next day in the afternoon, I got a decline cc message. And when I waited for 48 hrs for the quick result, I failed. She is just saying its best to check it after 24 hours for more accurate result. So yes it may change on you before the 24 hours is up because it happened to me. I used a $10 visa gift card. Good luck everyone!

    Nclex RN 12-30-15

    Hi everyone! I took my nclex rn 12/30, yesterday at 1pm. It's been a long long journey since I graduated. 3 days after graduation, my mom fell terribly ill and I ended up caring for her for almost a year. My mother in law kept pushing me to just take the exam to test the water even though I was not ready. That was a bad idea I did and failed with 75 questions. Took that test 7 months after graduation. My marriage was not doing well at the same time too. I took the test again after 45 days and I failed again earlier this year. I lost hope and thought I will never be a nurse. I kept thinking that I let everyone down bcuz I was dumb. I finally got a wind of encouragement to take it again after a few months of studying. And that was yesterday at 1pm. I felt pretty good and was able to eliminate 2 easily on most of the questions. The screen shut off at 99 questions and I didnt know what to feel. I kept thinking, oh no its an odd number, i didnt pass again. None of my family knows that I took the test and not even my friends too. It's so hard to go through this agony by myself. When I got home after the test, I was scared to try the pvt. I did it anyways after 4 hours knowing that its not 100% accurate. I did it anyways and got the good pop up. I was gonna faint and just kept saying "oh my god!" I tried the pvt again this morning and still got the good pop up. I'm still not 100% convinced that I did it but want to believe that I did. Tomorrow is new years day and at 5pm will be 48 hours. I'm just hoping I can get the quick result by lunch time to share the good news to my family. Anyone got their quick result earlier than 48 hours? Hopefully I'm still able to get the results even thought its a holiday tomorrow.

    Hurst. Pn review

    I heard Hurst was a great tool too. I failed the nclex twice and just bought Hurst to review content. If you need content review, Hurst is the way to go. I also got saunders 6th edition and pda. Good luck all!!

    I failed the NCLEX twice and I am distraught

    I'm in the same boat as you, Ready2Nurse5. I've been coming on this board to feel more confident about passing the nclex. My first and second attempt I had 75 questions and failed. For my second attempt I did kaplan but didnt have time to do all qtrainer, but I did all qbank questions. I just bought hurst online and saunders 6th edition. Anyone know of a good book for SATA questions? This time I will make sure I'm ready before scheduling for my next attempt. I just took my second attempt about a week ago and I was sad/upset but reading all of the other comments really got me going again. Don't be discouraged and keep on going. Some days I feel that way too, but I just keep reading comments of people passing after the 3rd, 4th, or 5th times. You can do it!!

    What can get you fired??

    Hi everyone, I'm a nursing student and would like to ask the nurses here, the "hospital policy". I'm doing a poster board for the class and came up with just a few. I'd really appreciate all your inputs. -documentation error -not storing needles in sharp container box -medication mix up Thanks so much!

    Hawaii Pacific University Nursing School

    Everything that jpeters84 said on this forum is RIGHT!! DO NOT GO TO HAWAII PACIFIC UNIVERSITY!! I have made a terrible decision too and wish I hadn't step foot in that university. They have changed the curriculum every semester and it's pulling a lot of us back. Someone on this board mentioned that most of the professors at HPU have power trips, that is true. If only I have found this forum sooner. I am now deeply depressed thinking my dream of becoming a nurse is impossible. It is true that you'll get a nice certificate that you got accepted to the nursing program, but in reality... it's BS. I just feel really bad for those who have spent so much time and money in that school. If your daughter comes here to hawaii to attend HPU that will be the biggest mistake.
