    ACLS first time, on line or in person?

    the AHA provides heart code: which is an online ACLS and you do a skills test with an outside one that is accredited by the AHA

    Hawaii Nursing Jobs

    Hello everyone. I will be moving with my husband in Hawaii in January 2012. I was just wondering what the job outlook is like out there. I have 3 + years experience as a nurse. 1 acute care experience at a major hospital here in San Diego and 2 with a skilled nursing facility. I have a Bachelors in Nursing. I already sent my resume to Tripler Army Hospital. What are my chances on getting a job out there. Are there travel agencies in Hawaii or skilled nursing facility jobs? Help anyone?

    Type of questions when passing on 75 QUESTIONS

    Just to clarify the 3000 questions....i ONLY studied KAPLAN....i did all the q-banks, question trainers, sample N-clex tests, i went over all the questions that were practiced in class.........so roughly it came out to 3000 questions....plus kaplan has practice priority questions/delegation and select all the apply.......i took the kaplan class for 3 weeks......then i had 3 weeks to study on my own........while taking the kaplan class i read their book and then listened to all the CONTENT video to basically cover what i had read........then i would practice a q-bank.........i don't know which you should do first.....but i heard that you should do question trainers first then the q-bank.......however i did the opposite by doing q-bank and then the question trainer........just because the q-bank was broken down into sections.....while the question trainer was basically everything.....just to let you know...i didn't really do so well on the q-banks.....my scores were in the low 50's-60's.....and occasionally there were some 70's and 80's.....for the question trainers.....i did horribly on 1 to 4....but on 5, 6, and 7 i was scoring 65, 65 and 63........KAPLAN had said that if i did all the Q-bank and reviewed all the answers....then there was good chance of passing........... seriously.........all the questions i did on q-bank and question trainer weren't really on the test........there were some that were familiar.......i think the point of kaplan is just to practice answering questions and to practice thinking critically.........i really thought Kaplan's questions were way harder than the actual NCLEX test.....which is good.... hope this helps........because obviously kaplan helped me to PASS THE NCLEX!!!!:nuke:

    Type of questions when passing on 75 QUESTIONS

    I took mine last Friday July 11th......i had 3 math questions which were really easy, about 3 or 4 SATA, a few infection, PEDS, medications that i didn't know, priority, and NO OB. i seriously thought i failed since the questions seemed not that hard....i mean....i thought KAPLAN's questions were way harder.....but i passed! you just got to remember that each NCLEX is different....what may be easy to you may be really hard.....i think i was just prepared after taking over 3000 practice questions that were harder than the real thing.

    TOOK NCLEX!!!! only 75Q

    OMG!!! i've been waiting for almost 4 days here in California! i've been such a miserable wreck for the last couple of days moping around and crying.......i've tried to keep my mind off the test by just watching episodes of LOST! =) but i can honestly say that i passed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :nuke::D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D i'm sooooo happy! i've been praying to god every day for to give me strength and support to get me through these days!!! I did take KAPLAN! i took the whole deal...........i went to classes every other day for 3 weeks......i wouldn't be able to get the information they were telling me in just a couple of days so i took the 3 week deal..........my diagnostic test score was 56%......that was before i studied anything.......then after taking kaplan and little studying.....i got 66%.........i was doing horrible on the q banks with scores in the 50's and 60's.....occasionally i would get some 70's and 80's............but overall in the 50's and 60's.............. for the question trainers....i did horribly on the first 4.....but on question trainer 5, 6, and 7 i got about 65%, 65%, and 63% ...........i really thought i failed this test since i felt the questions i was getting were way too easy....they seemed like basic content i should know.....but wasn't even too sure about during the test..........i seriously thought that kaplan's q bank and question trainers were way harder!!!!!!!! ............ i just want to leave a message: DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE.......KEEP PRAYING, STAY POSITIVE, AND DEFINITELY HAVE FAITH IN YOUR ABILITIES! its ironic.......but i felt that i had none for the last few days..........but i kept telling myself...........stay positive.......believe in yourself.................you can do this!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you everyone for your support and encouragement! but i can finally say that i'm a REGISTERED NURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    TOOK NCLEX!!!! only 75Q

    I only had 75 questions as well....i took the test on july 11....i really thought some of the questions should have been harder.....meaning i got content questions......i got 3 math quetsions....i probably only had 5 SATA....i had a couple questions of meds that i have never even heard of....but some that i knew like lithium....fosamax.....i had some psych questions.........i had some about infants and children.....i had infection.......i had several priority, teaching, delegation...........i'm really scared......i thought the test was okay.....and now i think i failed since everyone seems to think that they got out of the test thinking it was really hard.....i mean.....i guess i was just happy that it stopped at 75 without really thinking what kind of questions i needed to get to pass.....i'm really sad right now.......i don't even know ......i'm in california....so i don't even know when i'll get my results....so far all my friends that took the test passed at 75 or 76 and thought the test was really really hard.....i got out of the test....thinking it was okay.....i mean.....of course there were quite a few i wasn't too sure about.............anyone help please?????
