  1. Step by Step PROCESS

    The first thing to do is to find out what prerequisites your chosen nursing program requires. If your school has a nursing program, you can contact their office or go on their website and they should have information as to what is required for entra...
  2. Rn's go to nursing school for at least two years (for Associates degree) after taking the necessary prerequisites and being accepted into nursing school. Only after completing nursing school do RN's take the licensing test. Is this what you are wan...
  3. Ivy Tech Spring '10 Applicants

    For those concerned about receiving notification for Ivy Tech closing, somewhere on Campus Connect there's a way to sign up for text alerts. I don't know if you signed up tonight if you would receive alerts for tomorrow, but it might be worth a try....
  4. please help me about pediatric nursing

    I think the main safety issue here is agreeing to meet with someone she doesn't know--like other posters said, this could be an internet sexual predator.

    csab, I think it went up to about 4:00, maybe a little later, but not all the way up to 5:00. I would still plan on it going to 5:00, though, because they might be running behind. The day did go really fast. They moved us around to the different cla...
  6. Tired of being FAT and having low self esteem

    I, Like you, am addicted to food. I eat out a lot, although i really can't afford to, mostly because I'd rather eat alone in a restaurant than at home. I know that's different than a lot of people. I am working on making lifestyle changes because ...
  7. The first five weeks we had Fundamentals lecture and lab and Pharmacology. The next 11 weeks, we kept Pharmacology, but had Med Surg I lecture, lab and clinicals. i can't remember how many total hours. The first five weeks we were at school 4 days...
  8. Ivy Tech Spring '10 Applicants

    I didn't have to shorten them. I'm sorry I don't remember what color they were. They are little off from the scrubs that I got from the Uniform House (which is where we had to buy ours last year), but not enough that anyone noticed.

    I am 5'7" tall and I had to buy the "short" sizes. I like the pull-ons much better than the drawstring. FYI, I used my lab coat at the beginning of the semester, but then decided that it was too hot to wear during lab time, so after about the 3rd w...
  10. A&P Help

    The thing that helped me the most was the open labs. In 101 we learned the bones and muscles and open lab helped me a lot. In 102, the open lab instructors actually embellished a lot on what we learned in lecture, so what I didn't understand from l...

    Passing is 75 and NCLEx first try pass rate is 99%
  12. Much Older People Going Into Nursing

    I'm 56 and will be finishing my ASN in July of 2010. I plan to immediately start my prereqs for a BSN program. I always wanted to be a nurse and it just happened that this was my time. I really don't care if I can only work 10 years as a nurse. I...
  13. Ivy Tech Spring '10 Applicants

    I'm a current nursing student and I got scrub pants and shoes at Scrubs and Beyond. The shoes were about $60.00 and I can't remember how much the pants were. The shoes are pull-on, and are pretty comfy. The pants have elastic at the waist, not the...
  14. Ideas for a clinical "cheat sheet" ?

    Thanks for sharing that information. I'm going to print it off for myself and several other students.
  15. Is A&P really the hardest of them all?

    I thought Micro was harder but only because the exams were essay questions, so I had to study for them a little differently. I learned a lot that way, though. Micro has helped me tremendously during nursing school. I agree with previous posters, thou...
