    Hi everybody. Looks like it was discussed a lot before but I still can't understand: Is it possible to use my previous computer bacground in nursing???? I have Master's in Computer science and math. Currently I am being prepared for NCLEX-PN (I graduated from LPN school this year), but anybody who ever worked with computer will understand me -- this is addiction. So please give me an advice : are there any ways to mix nursing and computer programming experience. Thanks in advance.

  12. I would love to pay less, but they told me by phone about 200. Can you give me the exat page address about this price?
  13. First af all it doesn't matter where do you take the test and for wich state. NCLEX is nationwide company and the price is the same around the states 200$. If you failed - 200$ again - this is the price for your exam.
  14. You are right. I just bought this book - it's amazing
  15. I agree with you and this is great that you have this ideas. Just don't dissapear - I think it would be interesting to exchange any information about nursing. :-) I hope to see you in Illinois. What city do you live? If you mind you can send me the private message :)
  16. Hi blondiii. I am from Belarus - this is very western country from former Soviet Union. Thanks for your good words. What is interesting I am going to get Illinois license. So probably we will work together sometimes. And here is my advice: It's not bad to join to the studying groop, but sometimes it can become the waste of time. (At least it was in my case). You never know the level of understanding the subject of everybody. Try to understand everything at first. Try to get deep into the ideas, physiology and ethiology of disease, then try to imagine the possible ways of trating the patient and idea of getting risk from adverse effects of meds or condition.... Try to play a doctor (even on our level) with your abstract patient. It was my big mistake when I studied this stupid questions for the school tests and didn't use my own imagination about every disease. Plus meds... I have an idea about making something like helping system for the students about how to study. So feel free to ask me any questions.
