    NCLEX prep

    Best book I had for NCLEX was Lacharities Prioritization And Delegation, along with the strategies section from ati, and a easy to read book called Freys 3000 bullets. You may want to just Google some pharm flashcards for free. And don't study the day before the test, a fresh mind will go farther than trying to study what you already should know by now.

    Need help with syringe test question?

    is this a pharm question from a book? sometimes those books have errors and the may have meant 150mg in 1.5ml. My old curren math for meds book had a few of those typos.

    ATI Predictor Exam

    If your school is doing ati's NCLEX program, be sure to study hard on the NCLEX test strategies, and delegation skills, ati has one of the best, and you will need strategies on the NCLEX.

    Nursing Tips I have no prior experience in healthcare field

    good news, nursing is one of the few jobs you can get without having 3-5 years experience like the accounting majors are about to sadly find out. It may be a good idea to start out on a night shift so that it will be a slower pace and you can learn about the computer and stuff better. Nursing homes are good places to work and they are always hiring.

    Anyone not good at math but turned things around?

    You need to buy a book called ACT for Dummies and study the math section. I taught myself algebra with it. It's and easy and fun book.

    A & P with no science background?

    I took it and passed and I havent had a science class in many years. pay close attention to anything they say about the heart and lungs, and endocrine system.

    Is it easier financially in the Lpn to rn program

    my lpn to rn ran up a bill of about 8000 dollars over a year and half, that was for school only (books,scrubs, tuition,fuel, etc). I paid out of pocket (well my credit card did).

    Help: job choices as a new grad

    I would go with the office job, those are hard to get,hospital jobs are easy to get because of all the people who quit.

    LPN to RN worth it?

    Not make more money? Usually upgrading to RN gets you about 10k more a year. Having a Rn would open more doors if you ever left your current job and I hear many places are going to hire only Rn's. But if you have a good job with good retirement benefits, and you can make bank, it may be good to just stay as you are. Looks like you will win either way.

    I feel like I’m being targeted please help

    Get out of there before they really get you in trouble and you lose your license. I notice you said that there was a high turnover rate, so get on out on your own terms and not because you were fired or worse.

    A&P ll before or after starting Nursing program?

    Nursing school is very hard, take everything you can now so that you can take ONLY nursing classes. When you do take anatomy, pay attention to anything to do with the heart/lungs and endocrine system.

    Help failed NCLEX twice

    Best book I had that was a match to my test was an easy to read Lacharity Prioritization and delegation, don't let the name fool you, there is a lot of content in it as well. Other than that, I did online free flashcards based on safety and intervention, passed at 75. oh, and learn learn learn the test strategy that ati teaches, you will have to use guessing on this test.

    NCLEX in evening?

    I would try to go in afternoon if you can so you won't have to get up so early and can review lab values right before the test. Dont study the day before though and get to bed early, a fresh mind will help more than cramming the day before. Keep in mind that they take your photo before you test, so don't show up looking like you just got out of jail.

    Should, I quit my job and drop out of school?

    If you like nursing keep going, I don't feel any nurse will be a "good nurse" until they have several years experience on the floor. Most of what makes you a good nurse comes from being on the floor, not reading a book. After you get a few years experience though, hit the books again and then you can really learn from books.

    ATI Comprehensive RN 2019

    Those ATI test are hard to study for, about the only thing you can do is be a good student to start with, read the ati material if you can, and find some flashcards online based on ati stuff. also, dont stay up all night before the test, a fresh mind will go farther than an extra 2-3 hours of study the night before.

    RN school easier for LPNs?

    It won't hurt that's for sure, but if you pass RN school, it's because you made time to study a lot, not because you were an lpn. Rn schools is about 2-3 times harder than lpn school because it adds more detail and move through the material much faster.
