    cliques in nursing school

    This is bound to happen when large groups of women get together. The only thing you can control is yourself. I suggest you start to learn to get comfortable by yourself and with yourself. This will enhance your ability to exude confidence in handling these activities. When you're handling your own business, by yourself, it stands out. When you feel like you can't do it, ask for help. No need to feel down about it, be assertive in making sure you get help to handle your business. Last but not least, pray for the pettiness to go away! Much luck!!

    the nurse i dont wanna be

    I see it a lot, too! Honestly, I think it's a phase that each of us will face. Let's just hope that we will be emotionally intelligent enough to make a change rather than stay in an area that obviously makes us unhappy!

    Augusta State Nursing Program

    The competition is fierce! I am part of the first BSN class and it was hard for me as a post bacc student! If you can go online, to see who your advisor would be and talk to her. Considering Augusta State is a great option. Good luck in your quest for nursing school!

    Augusta hospitals??

    Augusta's medical community is a great place to begin your nursing career. It welcomes new grads and has been supporting nursing students. Careerwise it is a great option. Keep in mind though that Augusta is not like Atlanta when it comes to activities and entertainment. However; it's all in what you like to do on your personal time. I believe that this city is like any other in Georgia.

    Hospitals in Augusta GA?

    I grew up in Augusta and have been involved with the medical community. While I won't disagree with the lack of activities to do here, I will attest to the fact that this city is like any other. There will be some crime here and there, but the fact of the matter is that this is a great place to live. I expect that new grads wouldn't be frequenting the types of places that harbor trouble. That should be the same in any city. The medical community is great! You would be in a great position to start a career in Augusta. MCG is known for having great staffing and is ready for new people. University has a great Cardiac tower. I don't know too much about Trinity and Doctor's. I was just there for clinical. Eisenhower is great. I started volunteering there in middle school and fell in love with the health field. In my opinion, Augusta is ripe for new grads and even students in nursing school.

    how to stop fellow nurse from escalating an argument

    Just focus on what you can control. Everything else is out of your hands so just forget it.

    Potential Loss of ASU BSN Program!!!!!

    I'm sharing this with you all in hopes of the word being spread so that are legislators understand how students feel. We are trying to organize all we can and stop this scary and very real outcome. Please, if you have graduated from ASU's ADN program, been a nursing student, work in Augusta, GA; join me in reaching out to our legislators. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2FUSGSGA&h=781469859d27c8d8b04cf9524b156391 http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FStudent_Advisory_Council_of_Georgia&h=781469859d27c8d8b04cf9524b156391 www.votesmart.org Prayerfully Yours, ASU BSN Student
  16. In response to a request from the State legislature, the University System of Georgia is preparing a summary of $300 million in budget reductions for the next academic year. This $300 million reduction is in addition to the $264 million that has already been cut in the Governor's proposed budget. In yesterday's meeting with the joint House-Senate Budget Committee, Chancellor Davis described the magnitude of a reduction of a $385 million cut as equivalent to cutting "the entire budget for 23 of the state's 35 universities." In total we are looking at reductions of $633 million over the last two years. Our valued professors in Georgia are already paid some of the lowest salaries in the United States. Further cuts could include additional furloughs, layoffs, and substantially reduced salaries which would have a direct negative impact on our education. As students in the USG we could see the following effects from these drastic budget reductions: -Operating expenses would be reduced roughly 10% at every College or University in Georgia -Tuition could rise 77% -Some majors could be eliminated -As a result of class cuts, it would take much longer to graduate Remember, these budget cuts have just been proposed and not yet enacted. We still have time to combat these changes!
