    Rubbing after an insulin injection?!

    My current clinical instructor is now telling us to rub or massage after giving insulin. She made another student do this today. In postconference, myself, along with others, disagreed with this. Everything we've learned, all our books say not to do that, but she insists we do. My boyfriend is type 1, I think I would know about not rubbing it in! His mom is an RN, I called her at work and both she and her coworker said they never heard of that. So what are everyone else's thoughts? I will not do that, ever.

    19 years old..with baby HELP!

    I say go for it! Get in where you can, so long as you are comfortable with the school and it seems like a decent program...I chose the private route as well, got accepted, and almost done with my 2nd week btw! 49 more to go lol! I just can't wait on a lottery. I actually have all my RN prereqs done but you know how that goes with the impacted lotteries....I don't have quite a 4.0 or the experience to make up for it to get into Sac State, my grades are pretty good though....so I decided to start with LVN. I have a young child, am on unemployment, it's tough...but I have a wonderful guy and my family behind me and it will be worth it in the end!:)

    Because there is another thread we were using more. As for the fire day they told us in orientation business casual.
  8. I start November 9th at Kaplan in Sacramento. I am so excited!! I have waited so long to get into a nursing program. At orientation this past Wednesday they joked with us to enjoy our last weekend of fun...lol. This time next year I will be getting ready to take my NCLEX-LVN!

    alternative loan option is when you apply for a private student loan for what fed grants and fed loans won't cover. you will need a cosigner.

    No problem! I know this whole process has been frustrating for all of us, it's good to be able to come here and share experiences: )

    I thought I posted it before, but the total tuition (including books, uniforms, supplies, that stuff) is $28,450 (minus $20 enrollment fee to make it $28,430). As for out of pocket, I'd imagine gas money to get to school/clinicals (kind of a duh), and...not sure if anything else. Financial aid really does depend on your situation, how much money you made last year, etc. At least for sac they calculate for the first 9 months, because that's all they are able to determine as far as disbursement date stuff goes right now, but you will get called in again "next year" to recalculate more aid you are eligible for since the program goes through not only the 09/10 school year but partially the 10/11 school year. When we sign up for a private school, we can kinda figure it's going to be really high tuition, because they all are. Yes they want their money, but they don't get the same funding that community colleges do for example. the sky high tuitions at private schools are due to that; they help pay for the facility, the teachers' salaries, the desks, the computers, everything...they don't get money from the government like the public schools do for upkeep and all that. The most they get from the government is the title IV funding (your fed grants and loans).
