    Tb test in Dallas/Kaufman area????

    Does anyone know of somewhere I can get the PPD Tb test done in Dallas/Rockwall/Kaufman for preferably cheap? I'm attending TVCC ADN program in the Fall 09 and the orientation package said the health department in Kaufman would do a Tb test for $20. However, I went there for my Tetanus booster and HepB shots and they no longer give the Tb test which means I'm up a creek without a paddle. Help!

    Good Luck. It takes Texas forever to take care of anything legal.

    where to begin when paying for nursing school

    I am "poor enough" for help however even with the state's help I'm still having to use Pell, scholarships, and student loans through the gov. But I have 3 kids under school age and my hubby decided he didn't want to be a parent or a husband anymore. Just don't let the money keep you down. Do what you can to make a little bit. Every little bit adds up.

    Is there a physics section on HESI A2?

    I took the Hesi A2 for TVCC and there was not any Physics on it. All the sections were there but we only had to take three specific sections for the program but I do not remember anything about Physics.

    Anyone else going to be bored this summer?

    I am already bored but I know it's going to dissipate starting in June because with my son going to speech and occupational therapy twice a week I don't see the point in paying for daycare he won't be going to. So since I'll have an 18 month old at home and a 3 1/2 year old at home I see a great deal of work in front of me. Plus I'll get my books in July and then I have this compulsive deal where I have to read all my books before I go to class or clinicals.

    I'm taking both the 1119 class and the nursing math; I need both for certain. The books, the books, the books. Has anyone else looked them up online? I looked a few of them up and everything I saw was priced well over $100 and that was the used price. I really hope they are going to be passing on a good deal to us. I only budgeted $1100 for the books. I really can't tighten my belt anymore. I'm going to talk about getting my financial aid adjusted so that they can make the payments work with the program.

    I'm getting written up! (Very long)

    You did absolutely nothing wrong and should make certain you get statements from everyone involved in case the doc decides to be an a**. I had natural *shudders* childbirth with my first child and an epidural with my other two. The first time I was only twenty and my family and mother in law wanted me to do natural. Luckily it went fast but I did get in a lucky shot at my mother-in-law's face when I was yelling at her to leave. They were the ones that shoved me into natural labor. Sounds the same way with the family you were describing. And let me guess...the doc is male and over fifty?

    Kaufman says to keep May 8th, July 9th, and August 20th open for various reasons. First one is orientation. Maybe the other two are refresher orientations just so we won't forget stuff. But I must say. I really wasn't like the idea of the white scrubs for clinicals. Then I saw a post on here where one school is actually making the students wear the old fashioned white dresses. Now, I don't mind the idea of the white scrubs that much anymore. Of course now I have to buy underwear specifically to wear under the scrubs cause polka dots would just look kinda funny. (I let my kids pick out my underwear-as long as they're my size-it makes them happy) :)

    My 9 year old patient was raped and required surgery

    I'm so proud and happy for you and the girl! You are lucky the state let you keep her being a single parent. Here in Tx it's extremely hard. My daughter's godmother's niece (whew-follow that connection) was abused by her mom's boyfriend and so the state wouldn't allow anyone in the family to take her. I had to virtually fight to take her instead of her being placed in a overburdened house. The only objection they had, which they fought so hard over, was the fact that I'm a single, divorced mother. I got her and six months later she got to go back to her mother. But that's because Alina did what any mother would do-(she was in jail for the six months btw) she beat her boyfriend within an inch of his life while she waited for the cops to get there. But I do have one piece of advice. Be very careful of the mother. Document everything that you can: how often she visits the father in jail, how she sticks up for him, ect. Some states hate to take away parental rights unless they have no choice.

    TVCC In Texas

    For the Fall 09 class TVCC's ADN program didn't even make it out of the 10s. I barely squeaked by with a 10 because my GPA was on the high end of the scale.

    I applied to TVCC's ADN program for Fall 09 with 10 points and a 3.449 GPA. I got my acceptance letter and almost passed out! I called Jeffrey to make sure he got my return letter and he told me this year they didn't even make it out of the 10s.
