  1. I am trying to get feedback about Muhlenbberg Regional Medical Center Harold B. and Dorothy A. Snyder Schools and their RN program, anyone? Thanks.
  2. Could anyone, please, explain to me what "Atrial Fibrillation on the Setting of Pneumonia" is? I am on the process of preparing a careplan, and that is the medical diagnosis. Thanks.

    Pls help ME!! Any LPN schools around Edison NJ??

    Hi, what's the name of that school where we could finish LPN for 11 months?
  4. Thank you so much SMOORE for the encouragement. Yes, I CAN do it. I HAVE to do it! Thanks to you too, JSKSMON...
  5. Class starts next week, and I am wondering if you could help me devise a plan on how to successfully pass my first semester in the program. I already took all the other subjects while waiting to be admitted in the Program, so basically this Fall I am only taking my Fundamentals of Nursing which is being subdivided into 3. Lectures, Clinical, Lab Skills. We have to pass all that 3 sub-categories. Any suggestion on how you overcome your first semester in the program? I know some of you will answer me to "study, study, read, study" - but study has a broad scope, I wanna know HOW? One of the weakness I have is that English is not my first language.... But so far, I was able to get an A in both my A&P 1&2, B+ on my Algebra and Microbiology, and B's on English & other courses. Anything you wanted to share on your first semester Associate RN program? Thanks...

    AAAHHHHH!!!!! How does anyone pass A&P I ???

    Am glad I am already done with my AP1 & 2 a year ago with the unexpected "A" for both. I was just lucky to excel every exam, and was exempt to take the final exam. Thanks Professor Thornton and classmates... we had fun in the class.

    Becoming a nurse for the money...

    I finished Law in my home country Philippines, but when I migrate to this country in 2006 and was employed as a Legal Assistant, I was only getting $10/hour. With that amount of earnings, how would I be able to support myself if I lose my husband who is currently earning 6 figure a year? That $10/ hour wouldnt be even enough to pay-off our property taxes annually! So I took the LSAT, and planned to pursue my lawyering here, however, it would take me another 4 years in the law school and/or go back to Philippines and pass the BAR then go back here and take the BAR exam in New York. That would probably take a while. So, the door lead me to Nursing. I know there will be physical contact with patients who may poop and vomit once and a while, but I never see it that way. These patients need competent and passionate nurses. I would be happy to make their stay in my care worthwhile. Kudos to all nurses!!!! and soon be nurse....

    Stethescope & Blood Pressure Monitor

    Am having hard time on this. Haven't used a stethoscope in my life, so I wanna buy one as early as possible in order for me to practice on how to use it. I really don't know which one to buy. I am trying to shop around, but couldn't find a store in NJ that sells stethoscope.
  11. Hello all, I am a new member and this is my first post. Finally, I am formally admitted into the Nursing Program this coming Fall, and now on the process of scouting materials that I would be needing. My question is: What is the best possible Stethescope and BP Machine to buy? I am considering 3M™ Littmann® Master Cardiology™ Stethoscopes any comment please? And with regards to BP machine, please i need your help too. Thank you. Maija:wink2:
