  1. First semester random drug testing time

    I'm sure it's a urine test. Hair tests are expensive, and I doubt any school would be willing to shell out the extra cash, when urine tests are so cheap. Personally, I've never heard of anyone having to have their hair tested, expect for those applyi...
  2. Why are students going into LPN programs?

    I have no problems with LPNs in general. The vast majority of the ones I've met have been knowledgeable and kind. However, I've had a few issues with some in my class currently. I'm an RN student, and half of my psych class is LPN-RN transition stude...
  3. Is making friends in school important?

    There are a few people that I really like in my nursing program, but I doubt we will stay close after graduation. I have a few very close friends that I've had for years before I ever started the nursing program, and to be honest, I didn't go to nurs...
  4. Stop being so clique-y, you're all grown adults! This isn't high school, and acting like it is isn't cute.
  5. Quit talking about your kids. Half of the women here have kids. I have a kid. It doesn't make me special, and it certainly doesn't make you special. Being exceptionally fertile does not make you any more interesting to the rest of us.
  6. My ASN will have taken me three years to complete. One year of pre-reqs - A&P, micro, chem, etc. - and two years of core nursing classes. I think that this is pretty standard for CC ASN programs.
  7. You paid HOW MUCH for nursing school??!!

    I envy you. My CC is about the same price as yours; all of the loans I have were taken out to help pay living expenses. That's what happens when you have a family headed by two full-time students.
  8. Going shopping for school supplies tomorrow

    I work part-time at Target, and they have awesome school supplies. Unfortunately I already spend way too much of my paycheck there.
  9. You paid HOW MUCH for nursing school??!!

    I'm honestly kind of embarrassed about the amount of debt I have. Student loan debt scares me. It's not awful -
  10. A "chick's" perspective on Men in Nursing

    Another "chick's" perspective - plenty of women hold professionalism in pretty high regard, myself included, and this thread doesn't exactly reek of that.
  11. quitting while i'm ahead

    From one anxious gal to another... Plenty of people have had bad experiences with this or that various psych drug. I know I did. Paxil didn't do anything to help my anxiety, but Xanax turned me into a dysfunctional zombie. Part of psychiatric medicin...
  12. Gorked-out = over-medicated?
  13. LPN / ADN / BSN / MSN. Whats YOUR plan?

    Are you kidding? I'm 22 and I hardly consider myself a "late bloomer" into the nursing field. There are loads and loads of posts on this site from nursing students in their mid-40s or even older.
  14. LPN / ADN / BSN / MSN. Whats YOUR plan?

    I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I have one year left in my RN program. I loved my pharm class and would someday like to work in the pharmaceutical industry doing clinical research trials or working in drug development. After I finish my A...
  15. I love this post. I'm a non-repentant office supply junkie. Right now I am loving Bic VelocityGel pens. They feel great writing on a thick legal pad in clinical.
