  1. I know this is an old post, but the reason you have to retake the entire program is likely because the nursing courses are all over 5 years old. I don't think any program will transfer those credits. You could try Chamberlain or WGU. Good luck.
  2. If you fail this semester, they won't let you retake it?? As far as the PN license, if you were approved to take it, you had to have completed the required courses for it, therefor you're already a PN. And for that, congratulations! Put don't count...

    Cheating Classmates

    I'm not sure people who get all the answers to the questions throughout nursing school are going to necessarily be able to pass the NCLEX. Some might slide through but not most.

    Can Non-Licensed Individual Supervise RN and LVN?

    I've known some nursing homes to have non-nurse directors of nursing, so I think that a company can't appoint a supervisor no matter what their credentials. However, if you feel they're asking you to go against your nursing training or something you ...

    Student w/ PDN

    She's his PD nurse, there is no reason for you to be assessing him. Isn't that her job?

    18 year old student will not share info

    My son is 18 and a senior in high school. He can not write his own excuse notes or sign himself out early without my permission. As far as the school is concerned, he is a student that has to follow the same rules all the other students in the school...
  7. I literally felt this way the ENTIRE time I was in nursing school. I managed to graduate with over a 3.0 and a BS degree. That was 8 years ago. Women and infants doesn't always come easy to young men. That's okay! The course I struggled with was ass...

    Bad Clinical Instructor

    I'm not going to lie, I saw a lot of underhanded things happening with nursing school instructors that I felt at the time (and still do) in order to 'weed' out people they didn't like. Mostly students who would question things a little too much or w...

    Stuck Between A Rock And A Hard Place

    Did you sign a contract that required 2 months notice? The standard is 2 weeks. I think your employer is taking advantage.

    Elementary vs. Middle School Nursing

    Nope, I love my PK-5th graders. Way too much drama in middle school.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you're not a school nurse?

    Can Rittenhouse Become a Nurse?

    Nursing school is pretty hard to get into even for an anonymous nobody with good grades. Given his questionable judgement, notoriety, etc., I suspect they can just reject without cause or reason. *shrugs*

    Can Rittenhouse Become a Nurse?

    I'm just wondering if his 'celebrity' will work against him getting into nursing school/clinical placements. People with less 'history' have been denied entrance to nursing school.

    Can Rittenhouse Become a Nurse?

    Now that he has been acquitted, he says he just wants to go back to school and become a nurse. Do you think that is a viable career path for him, even after being found 'not guilty'..?
