    False Negative w/PVT

    I always feel awful walking out of exams. I am thinking back on some questions I remember and I am sure I got those right. There are others though where I had to practially guess as it pertained to things I don't recall or wasn't taught. Its just that I have the job of a lifetime waiting for me Friday at my final interview and I am not sure how to tell them I failed and if they'd even want me knowing I did and waiting for me to pass.

    Correct grammar

    Hi ! Doing a paper for a myocardial infarction and when I abbreviate it to MI, is it preceded by A or AN. When I type it out, I want to write the patient had an MI rather that the patient had a MI. What is correct??

    Passed NCLEX - IL Prof Reg Red Flagged Me

    I got my license! The Il Professional Regulation stated that one misdemeanor will not hinder a license or go to the board - it went to a liaison and they issued from there!

    Passed NCLEX - IL Prof Reg Red Flagged Me

    Oh no Tiger! I really hope the person I spoke to today is right. She (@ the IL Board of Professional Regulations) said since I have a small incident on my background report that it will not even go to the board. It will instead be picked up by a board liaison and sent on for processing. Now I am totally confused!

    Passed NCLEX - IL Prof Reg Red Flagged Me

    I also was wondering if the BON has their meetings every other month? I cannot find info on that and I assume at the next meeting is the soonest any movement will be made in my case
  10. I passed my NCLEX for LPN and sent in my application for licensure. I received a letter yesterday stating due to a criminal matter from 20 years ago, I need to send in the legal filings for that case as well as a letter in my own words of why this occurred. I mailed it all in today and am wondering could the board of Prof Regulation still deny me? It was a shoplifting incident that occurred when I was 18. I am now 38! I am so scared that after working so hard this one time incident will throw my nursing career a curveball and I won't be allowed to practice. If they DO approve me, how long does it take to get the license???? I have a job lined up and they said they cannot legally hire me without my license number! Any thoughts??

    TEAS score for JJC

    Well on my Nursing transcript, those are the only two scores that appear . My highest overall adjusted score was only 82.3 so I would definitely concentrate on the reading and composition :)

    TEAS score for JJC

    I took the TEAS 3 times - they use your highest score. I was accepted with a 93 in Reading and 88 in composition. Those are the scores they look at.

    ATI PN Predictor

    So we have to take a PN predictor via ATI at my school. I got a few questions wrong and I was wondering what you guys think the right answers would be. I got these 4 wrong but I dont know the correct answers. Just wondering what you all think New grad is hired and your the nurse manager.How do you ensure she knows how to take glucose reading? ask for return demo, check chart after shes through or ask how it's done Type 1 Diabetic cannot perform injections at home do to arthritis -what do you do? ask nurse aid to come and assist or order different route of meds Denture removal from a patient going to sleep. How is this done? Take from top row: remove up and out, place them in drawer in dry cup, or put in sink Whats more concerning in a patient that is legally blind - spoiled foods or unlabeled medicines
