  5. Hey everyone! I am looking into wscon and you know I have heard bad things in the past about this school, but I mean there are alway people who complain. THe thing is why have you guys chosen west sub? According to their school website, their NCLEX pass rate for 2009 was 97% which is above amazing! SO i mean i can see they are improving which makes me happy. If you have visited the school, how was it? Any information regarding this school would be highly appreciated. =)

    Do you think I can become a nurse?

    If you want to be a nurse, then you will do it. Like everyone else has said, it is your life, your career and your decision. What are the reasons that your family and friends think your decision for nursing is not right? It is good to have support but in the end, you dont want to listen to opinions of others and base your decision on that only to find yourself regretting it years later. Shadow a nurse or start volunteering at a hospital to get the idea and feel for the environment. Nursing is a great choice because you can work almost anywhere and there is so much room for growth. Although I am still pretty young, I could have saved myself a year or two of money if I just didnt listen to family influence. I was set on becoming a doctor, then changed to pharmacy, now I am sticking to nursing which I had originally thought of pursueing but of course parents and family had alot to do with why it took me so long to get where I am. So what you shoud do is put aside everyone else's opinions and focus on yours. They will eventually come around... =) Good luck and enjoy your senior year of hs!

    Need Advice about being independent!

    I totally understand. I just got a job and had my first orientation. I have two more days of orientation then I go solo. I am so scared. I have been assisting my orienting cna but I dont know if I am able to do this by myself. Everyone has been telling me to just stick with it, give it more days and it will get easier as I will get used to it. It is just tiring and I don't want to mess up. AHHH I feel so lost at times...

    first year nursing students

    Even if you wanted to eventually become a NP, you could get your RN in two years then work, and maybe your work place will pay for your BSN or you can go straight RN-MSN. I hear that in RN programs you get more direct patient contact. So it is really up to you, what seems to work better in terms of where you are now, mentally and financially. Some places, BSN's only get a dollar more than RN, most places they are getting the same pay. You really have to sit down and thinkg what your ultimate goal is and work according to that. Good luck! And congrats on nursing school!
