BTW my right arm is normal, I can still flex my right triceps.. plz help.... should i go to a doctor? PS I always workout both of my arms evenly, and no my left arm is not broken at all, just cannot flex my left triceps.

    need some advises....

    Hello, I received a letter from CSULA that I got in as an Upper Division Transfer for Fall Quarter 2010. I have to pay 100 dollars enrollment fee before May 1. Does this mean that I already got into the Nursing Program for this school? or I just got into the school but not the program. What should I do please help me..... What if i dont get into the Program, should I just continue with this school and wait until I get in or that would be a waste of time.

    experience nurses please help me!!

    Hhaha I've been thinking of getting the CNA certificate but it going to cost me 1.5g to be in the program and I don't have that kind of money right now. I was thinking of volunteer at hospitals but I dont know where to go/ ask the right person ahha. I'm a guy so to me atleast it somewhat awkward to do these kind of things dont you guys think?

    experience nurses please help me!!

    I just took the ipersonic topology test and it turned out that "dreamy idealist" almost fits me 100%. Here is the link for the description http://www.ipersonic.com/career/DI.html. I just want to know if you guys think that I will enjoy nursing career with this personality.

    Starting to doubt nursing....

    Here is a short summary of my situation. Currently I'm a third year student at Orange Coast College. In my first two years I wanted to become pharmacist then on the third year(this year) I decided that the career is not for me. I picked Computer Science at first and actually took one class and I do not like it at all. Afterward I've been looking into Nursing career ever since(6 months already). I don't want to let me parents down and I feel like the longer i stay in this school the more they disappointed in me. Just today, I typed in "I hate nursing" in google just to check out the cons for this career and to my surprise there are so many that actually starting to worry me. I've already do many research and here are some of the cons I've found: 1. Underpaid + Overwork. 2. Really really really stressful career. 3. People don't give you respect (coworker + patients) 4. Screw up schedules (ruined your social life) 5. There are many more but it seems like my thread is getting long... I have a few questions for Nurses. 1. DO you like/hate your job? why? 2. DO you recommend nursing career for students? why? 3. DO you regret going into nursing career?? 4. Is it true that there are variety of nursing jobs in one hospital?? for example if you hate your area/floor you can pick a different one in the same hospital and have totally different experience?? Please please answer these questions from the bottom of your heart. I'm so depressed right now. Right now I just want to rip my B*lls out with my bare hands cuz I don't feel like I'm a man anymore. I don't know since when have I become this indecisive and so low in confidence.

  11. I just talked to my aunt and uncle today (one is pharmacist and other is a doctor) and they both told me to look up respiratory therapist. They said that career is pretty decent money and satisfaction and i might interest in it. I have the general idea for that career such as only need 2 years of school, decent money = 40000-50000 a year thats about it. What I really want to know is the possibility for advancement in this career. I found out that this career is unique in a way that I make a decent money but theres no chance for advancement, no chance for me to rank up and make higher salary is this true? so if i make 40000 - 50000 a year then i will make around there for the rest of my life, is this true?? If possible please tell me the more accurate salary range for this career. Also is there really really no way to get advancement in this career?
  12. I've been wondering which career is better between these two Registered nurse (4 years college) vs Respiratory Therapist (4 years college). In term of: 1. Salary 2. Advancement for higher job 3. School wise (classes, tests, etc which is harder) 4. Job satisfaction P.s : I heard that RT rarely get any chance for advancement which mean once I become RT my salary will be stay around 50,000 a year for the rest of my life. How about Register nurse (associate degree) vs Respiratory Therapist (associate degree) also. 1. Salary 2. Advancement for higher job 3. School wise (classes, tests, etc which is harder) 4. Job satisfaction

    Finding the right path

    When I read around, people tend to say that Dental Hygienist is a hard major and is really competitve just to get into the program (associate degree). I live in California and it seems like everything is IMPACTED. I've wanted to become a pharmacy, CS major (networking, RN and Dental Hygienist. I don't know if it just my choice but all the careers I have had interested in are "impacted, highly competitive, require high science classes. This ****** me off the most because many studies say that " this career is really in shortage of people etc" then when I actually do research on them and found out myself that ALL the programs are touch as F*&^ just to get in for associate degree. Like nursing I have to get in a 2-3 years waitlist just to be in the program associate program and it required like high GPA as possible with 3.5 is like the lowest it can get. If possible can someone tell me more info about Dental Hygienist, is it like the same as Nursing major which require HIGH GPA, Higly competitve, and have like 2-3 years long waitlist. I'm really bumped out right now because all my friends are all doing really well except me. If possible please recommend me some medical careers that I might be interest in with a good salary etc.
