I'm 33, married and a mother of 2 girls ages 1 & 3, I currently work as a Clerk in the ED and my goal is to be a trauma RN. Right now I got into the LVN/LPN program so it's a foot in the door...

    Troponin of greater than 300! What is the highest you have seen.

    The highest troponin I saw in the ED was 29.something...he died a few hours later.

    PDAs...which kind?

    My school allows the use of PDAs to use both in theory & clinical training. I'd love to get one but I'm not sure what kind I should look at. Do I get a 'blank' one and load up my own programs at a website like skyscape? Or do I get one that already has the programs loaded? If I get one that's preloaded...will I be able to update these programs? I'm definitely on a tight budget (not only am I a nursing (lpn) student but I also have 2 small children)...so cost is in play...I want quality but on a budget. Thanks in advance!

    Best stethoscope

    I have a Littmann Classic II but I'm just a student right now. Most of the RNs I work with in the ED have the Littmann Cardiology Master.

    PDA's for Student Nurses??? Helpful or Not???

    I'm thinking of getting one as well for my program as my school does allow them. I'm just not sure WHAT kind to use? Do I need to get an iPod touch? A Palm? A Dell?

    The strangest thing you've ever seen on an x-ray?

    I work in the ED as a clerk right now and you name it we've seen it. One guy had a bottle of hot sauce up his rear...we've seen vibrators, pensils up penises, paper clips up penises, pennies...but the bottle of hot sauce was the most memorable as it'd been there for 3 days!
  6. I'm not sure about your program but mine is lottery and I've been applying to the RN & LVN programs for 3 years.
  7. hey guys, i just now found this website. seems cool! i have been applying for both lvn & rn programs for the past 3 years and finally got into the lvn program here at my local jc. although i'm excited about starting lvn school my dream is to be a rn so that i can work emergency. i'm hoping that i'll be able to slip into the rn program at my school. if people drop the rn program they first fill those spots with eligible lvn students...and i'm soooo eligible. regardless i'm just glad that after so long of trying that i'm finally in a program! i start jan 19th...not long now! just curious, but how much lifting is there in the beginning? i ask because i had shoulder surgery in november and although my orthopedist is going to clear me for school my rom is still limited and i'm still in my sling.
