    Creaky, Squeaky Danskos!

    me too but does dansko have to know that? are they gonna ask for a reciept? i wouldnt mind doing that but they are so comfortable and broken in already, id have to start from scratch. ill try the oil and powder first.

    Creaky, Squeaky Danskos!

    i see this is kind of late getting in on the discussion. i am also plagued with the squeaky danskos. they are also the only thing that has solved my foot probs. i have two pair: oiled black that dont squeak at all. ever. also hurt the top of my foot/arch after long shifts. have shiny brown ones that squeak like no bodys business!!! its almost embarassing when your training or in clinical with a preceptor or otherwise quiet walkers. its definitely the shiny ones that do it and my brown ones are way more comfortable/feel more broken in. i MUST fig out a way to de-squeak. ill try the oil and baby powder technique and report back. angel

    The HRSA Nursing Scholarship

    ps: i just called and spoke to P? who insists that notifications are still going out until sept 30. i begged him to just tell me if i didnt get it so i could stop worrying about it. he said he honestly didnt know either way. i wanted to tell him about the forum and that i know for a fact that other analysts are giving different info but i figured it might be a HIPAA violation. :)

    hey joe. thanks for the welcome into the poor club. i didnt get any emails or calls or credit checks. im assuming i didnt get the scholarship. this is the 2nd year in a row that i have been turned down. im trying to look at the bright side: im in nursing school and graduate in may :), i currently have a job as a tech/cna that pays very well even tho i can only work once a week :), i can do whatever i want after graduation.

    well, im being patient but getting discouraged. i havent had any email at all from HRSA and no credit check. im in the first preference group and applied last year too. live in maryland. i would say all of you who have 'analysts' are in pretty good shape. again, if you read last years thread, you will see that we all went crazy from july to october waiting. its all good, we will make it somehow.

    wow. i dont see how youre doing it with a 7 month old! i thought i was having a hard time with my 15yo son. thankfully, he is a darling. i know youre trying to be positive, but they WILL NOT let us know soon. dont expect to hear anything before september. and calling does no help, if youre lucky to get someone on the phone, they are usually rude. they have no clue the position we are in. good luck with the rest of your program.

    ditto was slimlady and twois said. i was one of the ones giving my self a heart attack last year waiting for this scholarship. not only did i NOT get it, i didnt find that out until Oct 20th! hows that for waiting? the compulsive checking of credit reports, email, mailbox will not do you any good and it is in vain. the folks that did get it found out starting about the middle of september thru the end of sept. if you read last years thread, it gives you a good idea. def. proceed as if you are NOT getting it (as far as securing whatever other loans you need to) knowing that if you do get it, it will be a blessing and you can always return the loan money to its original source. also, if you are not in the first funding preference, i would say there is no chance. there are so many people in the first category (esp this year when more people knew about it) that all the awards will be exhausted before the get to 2nd. there will even be many in the first that dont get it. i am not trying to be negative, yall. im just trying to alleviate anxiety and encourage everyone to enjoy summer; and the last bit of life before nursing school craziness begins. esp for those of you with families...be prepared to hear them complain about how much you study instead of doing fun stuff with them. and remember, where theres a will, theres a way and we will all get thru nursing school with or without this HRSA insanity! good luck to everyone.

    When you have students on the floor...

    same here. i just finished clinicals for the semester. we had to check with our instructor before hand, show her the meds we were about to give, then give them. we cant do IV push at all, we would make a minibag and hang it (after showing the instructor the bag). if it was NG tube, she would want to be there. injections she monitored until she was comfortable with our technique, then she let you give it on your own, but still had to check in with the med before hand. we would get at least a 'clinical deficiency' if we passed meds without checking, and likely dropped out of the clinical for the semester. risky for that instructor to let students operate like that under her license. good thing its the minority. hope it gets resolved and no pts got hurt.

    The HRSA Nursing Scholarship

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to put my 2 cents in and ask some questions. I applied to the NSP last year and did not get the award. I was qualified in the first funding preference group. EFC has to be zero or you have no chance. The notification that i got said there were over 425 applicants and only 189 awards. I do not recall there being an income limit but im sure that is how they decided who got the award out of the first preference group. i made about 22K in 2008. I notice someone say something like last year they made too much, but this year they are eligible. can you tell me what you mean and where you found the info? it would be nice to know if there is a limit. last year so many of us were on here waiting everyday for notification. They were supposed to announce awards by sept 1st but it was mid october before i finally got my rejection notice. also, anyone apply last year and applying again? my application info has all my stuff on it from last year (when i log in) and says all of my supplemental documents are completed. im not clear if i have to submit new information or not. when you call the 800 # it like a 20-30 minute wait on hold. thanks! angel

    hi everyone. still nothing for me yet. i talked to a guy at the call center that promises me that letters are still going out (acceptance and rejection). is there anyone who got the scholarship/letter/contract in the mail that DID NOT receive the finalist email in sept? just curious.

    i still haven't gotten either letter; accept or reject. also never got the original email. i still refuse to give up hope until i get one or the other. congrats to those who got it so far and sorry to those who didn't. i'm very sure that the selection process among all 'qualified' applicants was totally random. however, i'm certainly in solidarity with the spirit of 'lets get thru nursing school no matter what'. if we've made it this far, nothing can stop us but ourselves.
