  1. Overwhelmed....I feel like giving up!

    You are so right! I'm just gonna concentrate on studying and passing the exam on Tuesday and see what happens from there. Unfortunately calling in sick tomorrow is not an option. I do, however have Tuesday off from work so I can review a bit in th...
  2. Overwhelmed....I feel like giving up!

    Hi....I feel the exact same way! I never know where to start! Once I do start studying I can't get in a groove, then I get up and as you said "fidget around the house". Right now, though, it's crunch time. I know I have to be glued to my books all...
  3. Overwhelmed....I feel like giving up!

    Thanks for the advice....However, youtube is one the major distractions at home. Instead of studying I start watching music videos. Maybe I'll just try watching the funny cats though, when I'm in the need of desperate stress relief! Thanks again a...
  4. Overwhelmed....I feel like giving up!

    Hi...Thanks for responding! Just to clarify, I work full-time but attend school part-time. Class is one night a week from 3-9 and clinicals are two nights a week from 3-10. Combining work, class, clinicals, and my commute it's like having two full...
  5. Overwhelmed....I feel like giving up!

    Thanks for responding! I've been working at my current job for 11 years now. Although it is a stable, good paying job now, the future of it is not bright. I agree that I should use my current job as motivation to study hard and move forward, but wi...
  6. I posted this in the LPN student forum, but have decided to post here as well in the hopes of eliciting some more advice. I'm going into my final semester of LPN school in about a week and a half. My final exam for Med/Surg is Tuesday 4...
  7. I'm going into my final semester of LPN school in about a week and a half. My final exam for Med/Surg is Tuesday 4/3. My problem is I feel as though I haven't given 100% effort this semester and my grades really reflect that. Last semester I got a ...
  8. Flex time VA nursing

    I'm a student doing clinicals at a VA Hospital in MA. A nurse in the PACU told me that she and others do three 12 hour shifts a week. However, I'm not sure if that is the case for all of the units in that particular VA. '
  9. I made it through LPN school!!!!!

    Congratulations! That's great! I hope to be done with my part-time 2 year program in June, that is if I can find the motivation and time to dedicate to my studies. Anyways, definitely keep us posted regarding NCLEX. Keep on studying!
  10. How to Deal with Panic Attacks?

    Hi...Just in the past year alone I've experience several panic attacks. I'm working full-time in addition to attending school part-time. I don't recall ever experiencing a panic attack before starting school. Consequently, I'm attributing the pani...
  11. Cracked and Bleeding hands...help?!

    I agree! My hands and lips get dry and cracked every winter. For the past couple of years I have been applying Vaseline to my hands (as well as wearing cotton socks over them) and lips every night. I wake up in the morning and my hands are as soft...
  12. How can I make up clinical hours?

    Hi....In my program if we miss one clinical we have to do an 8 hour computer assignment. From what I understand the assignment is a case study and it takes the full 8 hours to complete. If we miss two or more clinicals, I believe we have to pay an ...
  13. Hi, That is the same book that my class is using. I believe that the end of unit and end of chapter questions are located on the disk that came with the book. As for the workbook answers, my professor posted them on the portal of my school's websit...
  14. Help with classmate

    I am in my second half of an LPN program and there is one of "those" in my class too! Luckily she is not in my clinical group. Over the last year or so, I have learned to ignore her comments and her snide remarks that she directs towards me and my ...
  15. I was wondering if anyone has ever passed out or nearly passed out during clinicals, and if so were there any consequences? The reason I ask is, last night during a procedure at clinical I began to feel nauseous and had to leave the room. I felt...
