  1. ? on jehovah witnesses......and blood

    This post is in reply to the article posted by azhiker96 and not exactly her post itself: I think the problem is that too many people see other religions' views as "out there" and dissasociate themselves with these people in an us v. them mentality. ...
  2. ? on jehovah witnesses......and blood

    Thank you for your feedback. It was not my intention to go off topic. My point was that there seemed to be a tone of non-understanding and non-compassion of the JW belief. I thought if I used an example that would most likely fit most of the poste...
  3. ? on jehovah witnesses......and blood

    I am thankful to live in a place where we do have the right to refuse. With that being said, prior arrangements must be made. I think of the example of female circumcision done in some cultures. I understand that in those cultures, the procedure i...
  4. if graduate loans will go through - here's a thought: look for an msn program that accepts non-nursing ba students. i know ohio state has one, so maybe your local university does too. once you get into the program, you earn your rn and then complet...
  5. Any advice for studying cadavers in anatomy class?

    You bring up a good point - with the cadavers, we don't get to do the dissection. I think there is a real learning opportunity in doing that yourself. We just see the results after someone else has done it. Honestly, I am not sure if I had the sca...
  6. Anybody else feeling bad??

    My husband used to get up at 4am to do his homework before work officially started and then went to school in the evenings. We barely saw him. I was home all day and night with two babies, but you're right - it's hard on "Daddy" too! He doesn't ta...
  7. Any advice for studying cadavers in anatomy class?

    Exactly, it's the preservative. The visual isn't exactly helpful when trying not to upchuck the bagel you crammed down during your 10 minute break either. We got a new recruit last week - it's more of a baked chicken appearance as opposed to the o...
  8. Anybody else feeling bad??

    I work full time at a desk job and go to school (nursing pre-req's) evenings and weekends for now. When my kids were really little, I couldn't afford to work because daycare was so expensive. I stayed home while my husband worked full time and went ...
  9. Anybody else feeling bad??

    I am in the same situation. I have re-prioritized my time. I spend much less time cleaning my house and with friends that aren't as important. I dont' always answer the phone or call a friend back that wants to aimlessly chat for an hour. I study...
  10. You could research hospitals that offer tuition reimbursement and try to find a position in the hospital - even in non-clinical - that would pay your tuition. Our area is hit pretty hard with the recession, so most non-clinical jobs are on a hiring ...
  11. Any advice for studying cadavers in anatomy class?

    How did your "rat" class go? Maybe I am not familiar enough with rats, but I would think they would be awfully small to learn from - especially in the hands and feet. That's hard enough on a human. Are you going to name yours? I think I would nam...
  12. Any advice for studying cadavers in anatomy class?

    Me too! We had a "snow day" on Weds. I should have spent the day studying, but spent most of it watching NCIS re-runs on my DVR. I love those days when you never change out of your pajamas!
  13. Any advice for studying cadavers in anatomy class?

    Please update us on how it goes! I have my lab again tomorrow - and a lab practical exam. I will come prepared with vick's and a new appreciation for having cadavers and hopefully a full knowledge of back and lower limb muscles, blood vessels and ...
  14. Any advice for studying cadavers in anatomy class?

    Thank you guys for making me laugh this week! It has definitely changed my perspective. I will go in thinking of cats, pigs and rats (oh my!) instead of my nauseated tummy! The elusive promises of an anatomy professor...it's drama to make you exc...
  15. Where did you go to nursing school?

    What do you think of the program? I am starting in the fall (hopefully!). I am researching the COTC LPN to RN conversion in Newark. I am not sure if that qualifies as "close-ish" but it looks like a quick transition program.
