  1. A Point of View From a Dialysis Patient

    I can understand where you are coming from. I am both a Nurse AND a Dialysis patient and have experienced and witnessed many of the issues you mentioned. When I am working I on occassion run into patients who do Dialysis and various centers in the ar...
  2. Bad Interview...

    You did fine, but I will say her question was COMPLETELY innapropriate and I am not even sure they are allowed to ask questions like that during an interview. Your relationship status is completely irrelevant to the actual job and I probably would ha...
  3. Testing Thursday, any last minute tips

    Make Monday your last day to study and spend Tuesday and Wednesday relaxing and find distractions. You will just freak yourself out if you study up to the last minute. Get a good nights rest (if possible) the night before. During test take deep breat...
  4. Anyone have to wear Dove Apparel?

    I had to wear DOVE apparel in school and hated it. I followed the size chart guidlines and yes their products run really big. I just stuck it out with my oversized uniform though (looked like a clown). No they dont shrink. On the label it states not ...
  5. LPN with A Criminal Conviction?

    What was the end result? Probation? Time served? Charges Dropped? Is it considered a misdemeanor? It may or may not affect you. I know thats vague. In terms of getting a job, there are many employers that will still consider you. The problem may be w...
  6. help dont know what this means

    The answer you put was correct but the answer eat right for your age group is MORE correct. In Saunders review it discusses an "Umbrella" answer. An umbrella answer is one that is VERY general. So eating right for your age group is very general. The ...
  7. Finally passed on my 8th time.

    I know this is an older post and you have been a practicing LVN for 5 months now...but I just have to say I admire your perseverance. You never gave up and kept trying when many would have called it quits. The fact that you let nothing stop you from ...
  8. help dont know what this means

    Using Maslow...lets say a question was asking about a care plan and what would be a priority intervention or diagnosis. Using Maslow you would want to pick the option that addressed the most "basic" needs. For example, you wouldnt want to pick the re...
  9. help dont know what this means

    I completely understand how tough it is to apply the wealth of knowledge you have from studying the material. For me what it came down to is ABCs and Maslows heirarchy of needs. This doesnt work in every circumstance but for many questions this did h...
  10. Highly disturbed today at Clinical...

    You are totally not overthinking it. I understand that things get busy or that resources are limited but I think its very important to maintain a Pts dignity at the very least. When I did clinicals in LTC I observed similar things. If I grabbed an ex...
  11. Pearsonvue "Trick". Is this TRUE? Does it Work Every Time?

    You know what, just wait til tomorrow. Sometimes I think the pvt causes too much anxiety. Just go out try to distract yourself (see a movie or something) Then tomorrow you can check your results. Good Luck to you :)
  12. Good Luck to you and I will def keep you in my prayers. Dont freak out, you will be fine and are well prepared. What I do before I start answering questions on a big test, is I will stop and take some deep breaths and then say a prayer for me to stay...
  13. CA NCLEX-PN RESULTS

    You know...I dont even live in Ca and I am agonizing with you all. What up Ca? I know there is a faster process and frankly Im a bit annoyed that they torture their nurses like that (especially when Pearson knows the result immediately). Anyway, i fe...
  14. Pearsonvue "Trick". Is this TRUE? Does it Work Every Time?

    Im in FL...I did notice that those who the trick did not work for though are in Ca. Perhaps because the state does not offer quick results. Who knows. All I know is it worked for all of us so far :)
  15. Pearsonvue "Trick". Is this TRUE? Does it Work Every Time?

    I would say yes. Out of the 22 people in my class who took their NCLEX-PN the "trick" worked for 100% of them. Everyone who got the good pop-up passed and the one person who failed got to the CC page. I had a friend who just took NCLEX-PN on Thursday...
