  1. LVN-RN Schools

    It may depend on what part of the state you're moving to. I know that Dyersburg State Community College (in west TN) does not require any experience. A lot of people go the online route, throug Excelsior, and I don't think that they require any work ...
  2. What is a Med/Calc Practicum?

    It's going to vary depending on your program, but it will most likely be basic math like "Dr. orders 0.5 mg of drug x. You have drug x available in 250 mcg tablets. How much would you give your patient?" I wouldn't think they would get into iv calc...
  3. Nutrition: Phosphate vs. Phosphorus

    Thank you for your quick reply. I'm going to go with that for now, and double check it with my teacher tomorrow.
  4. I'm having trouble with an assignment for my nutrition class. I'm supposed to list the phosphate content in a renal menu I'm working on, but all I can find is the phosphorus content. I can't even find references to phosphates in my nutrition book, ...
  5. Stealing stethescopes

    My school only allows us to have black steths, so you might want to check with your instructor to make sure they don't care about the color before you buy one...
  6. Omg math problems fail

    This is something that you need to fix NOW. Don't expect to be taught that kind of basic math once you're in nursing school - it's hard enough without the added pressure of trying to catch up and learn something you "should" have learned in high sch...
  7. Vaccines Required for Nursing School

    I had to have a tetanus booster, as well as most of the others mentioned above.
  8. I couldn't handle it and now I'm afraid...

    I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my father recently, and I kind of understand what you mean. I am not very far into nursing school, but I have come to realize that it's different when it's not your loved one in that situation. It is easier to r...
  9. Honestly, your best bet is going to be to do some research for yourself. First off, you will need to find Wyoming's Board of Nursing website and see which schools are approved to teach LPNs. Then, you'll want to look into prerequisites, program rat...
  10. You're going to find that there's a lot of uncertainty. One teacher wants things done one way, your textbook another, and whoever you get for clinicals will have totally different method. The same holds true for testing. In your example, we were ...
  11. any probs with sallie mae private loans

    Honestly, that's a huge debt load to take on. No matter who you get it from, it's going to be very hard to pay it back. Is there any way you can go to a school that DOES accept federal funding? If you're single and not working, they would probably ...
  12. I'm not a mom, but there are a couple of things that I did that have helped our household run much more smoothly. 1. I began planning our meals a month in advance, and making a general shopping list for each week/two weeks. It's not as hard to do as...
  13. what textbook do you use?

    We use Rosdahl's "Textbook of Basic Nursing", also by Lippincott. I actually like it, for the most part. It tends to break things down and uncomplicate them, which is nice for people like me with little to no medical background. On the flip side, M...
  14. Tn tech covington lpn students how did you get in.

    My combined score was 197 out of 200. 99 in math, 98 in English.
  15. Tn tech covington lpn students how did you get in.

    I wouldn't call it extremely easy to get in, nor is it easy once you are in, but it certainly can be done - I started in September. Your number one priority should be scoring as high as possible on the COMPASS exam. It appears that most of the admi...
