    how to help a struggling student?

    You mean that the hemoglobin dropped from 9.6 to 8.6 not 96 to 86? Or am I missing something here???

    Orientation losing it's flavor

    I think you should keep your job and keep filling out aplications,with that said I just accepted a job as a transporter(my whole family totally disowned me and their friends hehe and all they do is just keep giving me advices what should I do so I finally missled back and told them if they really care why dont they use their connections to get me in-yes some of them are nurses so that kind of back them off) in one of the major magnet hospitals and they only hired internal applicants for their new grad program so I'm hoping somehow I will be able to to get in....just keep plucking away and be patient:heartbeat

    Disgusting Behavior of Nurses

    I guess I'm tired of people always pulling the race card.

    Disgusting Behavior of Nurses

    I think this is a very objective opinion..I'm sure that any nurse regardless of color,gender would be reprimended for her/his unkept appearance...I'm not saying that the head nurse was right in saying those things to your friend (since obviously your friend is on meds) but we as a nurses are expected to look neat since we take care of arleady sick people who needs our help..once a nursing instructor told me "If nurses cant take care of themselves how can take care of other people"

    I wouldnt automatically jump to fire the head nurse however she needs to be at least disciplined......

    Help - Lung Sounds

    Yeah I can definitely relate.When I was in NS I always had problems with hearing any abnormal or diminished sounds...so I went ahead and purchased a book with the CD that has many different types of abnormal sounds you can listen to....I think it is really great and it can definitely help you to get better in the lung assesment.

    Affairs rampant among nurses?

    Sad to see so many unhappy marriages

    I'm not really a nurse until I sign "RN" after my name

    yeah I'm ****** off too and I think it is BS,I hate the fact that people cant have afair shots,regardless what other may think in my opinion everyone should be provided with an equal shot regardless of who they know...you know like they feed us at the end of the job application with the equal opportunity act...I'm a new grad and just passed the board recently but I started to apply for jobs back in June and guess what I cant land any interview cause I dont know anybody who works in hospital except my boyfriend who is NOW trying to put in a good word for me so I can be hired as trasporter at his facility but his boss is not super excited to hire me cause I acknowledged to him that I'm a new nurse so now he thinks if he hires me I will soon quit...so I guess I learned a lesson to LIE in the times of economic turmoil...I will go to a LTC job fair that is coming up soon...anyway I'm also looking at the intership programs at a different hospitals but they accept new nurses starting february so it is like 6 months ahead so I'm hoping to find something sooner.Trust me I hate using connections...I always have been independent and trying to do it the right way but it seems like right now it is not working.

    Disgusting Behavior of Nurses

    hmmm I witnessed a very similar incident...during our preceptorship one of my african american female nursing students had a complain about her hair that she looked unkept and unhygienic...she was hurt by those comments but she took the criticism to her heart and ever since she always had her hair done and looked really cute.Sometimes what we think is meant to hurt us turns out to be a motivating factor.

    My NCLEX story

    Ok so I took my NCLEX today Wensday the 12th of August at 2;00pm.I was very nervous,shaking,excited when I got there and I think people responsible for signing us in thought I must have been nuts...I got hit pretty bad from the the get-go....The first question was about some nursing procedure and I was like what???????:confused:I think I missed it because the second question was rather easy...but I managed to climb back up and the third I think was a priority type of question....I was bouncing up and down throughout the whole test...sometimes I was taking educated quess,sometimes I was beating up myself in the head for not reviewing some obvious content question that was given to me...I also felt like crying,bursting in the tears (especially with some meds question which for most part I knew what they were for but didnt the side effects of it!!)I also felt lighheaded....and could not even make myself to write down the number of SATAS I had I just wanted to finish and getting out of there....so to my very suprise I had no OB at all,one or two PEDS,5-6 SATAS I believe (one time I had one sata after another and I kept thinking to myself lord I must have had to answers prior SATA question wrong and they are providing me with the second chance!),I had couple of client teaching,med questions,couple of infection control,some med surg,one drag and drop,one math....Went the computer didnt shut off at 75 I was getting extremely apprehensive,I was like ok now great I will fail...but then after few questions it shut off and the last question was SATA!I was like what is going on....so now I will order the quick results and maybe try the famous trick to ease my nervousness..I really dont know what to think of it...seriously....I have a question when can I try the trick?
