    nursing school vs nursing job

    you don't have to like nursing (in general)... all you need to do is competently treat your patient and keep them alive until the next nurse arrives or they are discharged. it is a means to an end (a paycheck). do the bare minimum... this is what REAL WORLD nursing is about... per this forum and my experience in school. did i get that right? LoL

    Who else thinks that this is unfair?

    meant to include... if the minimum passing grade was 80%... hope that makes sense.

    taking a break from my NCLEX studies... this is what i had post a couple months back. "i'm not sure how to articulate this, but here it goes. i either read this here or a faculty member disclosed this. they implemented the HESI to keep borderline students from continuing their nursing education. this means, the 80% grade student (prior to the HESI) fails because the HESI brought their grade down to a 79.9%. ultimately, a college/university/etc... is a business. from what i remember, there are statistics correlating NCLEX passing rates and campuses. these figures dictate their accreditation, enrollment, etc... i'm not sure how much (if any) relation there is between the HESI and NCLEX. i know people assume they reflect one another."

    When do you know it's time to give up? :/

    what else do you have going on in your life? the majority of people fail nursing school because of prioritization issues. nursing school is not difficult, but you have to put in time/effort. i am not afraid to admit i am not the brightest person in the world, but i have an indomitable will. i haven't seen family for 4 years, i half-assed a relationship (so that failed), and i quit my job to focus on my studies... nursing school was a full-time job for me. good luck whatever you decide to do... i graduated Summer of 2014. with almost a 4.0 GPA (nursing curriculum)

    Best Techniques to study Pharmacology for nursing

    Pharmacology sucks... I am grateful this wasn't an actual class, but incorporated into my entire program. I am not sure what advice to give you because the majority of it is memorization/repetition... Try breaking them down into classes and work from there. At least with a disease process, I could make educated guess through questions. Even licensed rns keep medication books lying around. Try adderall or some **** like that... So many people in my program were on brain steroids. I feel cheated... I am kidding. Have a nice day.

    Hesi rn exit please help!!

    not talking about the test in general... moreso the abrupt change. especially, 5 weeks prior to ending the term... i know why schools implement these types of test. loving how they sell it as an indicator of how successful you will be when you sit for boards. people who scored well above the recommended minimum still failed the NCLEX. catmom713... use evolve if you have that resource. use that book you bought also... those helped me most when i was in nursing school.
