Hey NICUrn28! I heard you pass the NCLEX at 85. Congratulations on your future endeavors.
Pnemann- Well said. I concur with everything. The policy kept changing as we went along, so much so that the nursing boards were doing an investation. It went on for months and I even recall another one of my classmates sueing the school.
dkeophil- do you work for gurnick? If so, I feel sorry for you as many administrators/teachers left. (7 to be exact during my 14 months)
If not, Im assuming when you say that you "graduated" on christmas eve, that means that you have passed your classes and prepping for the hesi. If so, maybe you should spend your time wisely and go visit the other forums in regards to hesi study tips instead of going to all the other threads lying about gurnick. There's no need to go back and forth about whether the school is good or not. All this information can be easily assess through the LVN boards.
Study tip #1. Use you own advice: Learn not to go with the word "ONLY". This is an absolute word and it is highly unlikely to be the answer.
Study tip #2. Read the question carefully. Its pretty evident that your grammer is the same as Larissa's.
Good luck on HESI.
Like everyone else, I graduated and its a closed chapter in my life that I will never open!
It is very possible! I work 40 hours graveyard (10 hour shifts). 5 days school. (Lecture 3 days a week and 2 days at clinicals.) I'm 3 weeks away from graduating and it's well worth it. About 70% of my classmates work graveyards so we have a little support group. I do most of my studying and homework at work during downtime. Good luck
Im 3 weeks away from finishing my LVN program. However, the teacher had announce that she will extend the class 1 extra week because she was not able to "cover all the topics" by the end of the program. The reason this was the case was because she was absent. This would normally be a great opportunity but I can HONESTLY say that the only thing I learned in her class was to block her voice out and self study on my own. So what's the problem: It takes away 1 week of valuable study time towards HESI and NCLEX. Im ready to take her final and had explained to her that the syllabus states that the program is to be done on 3/20, not 3/27. She stated that "If I didn't want to come on the 27th, then I don't have to.":uhoh21: Please advise????

As a pharmacy tech, I completely concur. At our hospital, you waste the medication with a witness. If it's sealed, you can put the medication back. NEVER is the drug returned to the medication bin as anyone can walk in. If it's absolutely necessary, go to the pharmacy and manually check it back in. Save your license because if anything happens, we can easily pull it up a full detailed report of who, what, when etc
