  1. Pharmacology online?

    Has anyone taken Pharmacology online, while doing the rest of your nursing classes face to face? If you have, how hard did you find it? Thanks!
  2. Ivy Tech Fall 2010 ~ Fort Wayne

    I was just wondering if anyone else on here is going to be entering the nursing program at Ivy Tech's Fort Wayne campus this fall. Would love to get to know a few people before the semester actually starts!
  3. Associates vs. Bachelors

    Ok, I have read through quite a few threads on associate degrees in nursing vs. bachelors degrees in nursing. I'm hoping someone can tell me if I'm thinking the correct thing, that the main difference is those who want to go into management should g...
  4. I am so sick....

    Of all these threads that keep popping up WARNING people not to go into nursing! Do the people who start those threads really think we don't know the job market sucks right now? It sucks for everyone!! Do they really think they are going to get peo...
  5. I am so sick....

    LOL, pass the popcorn!
  6. Bad Interview...

    It was illegal for her to ask you anything about your personal life. Prospective employers are forbidden to ask about your relationship status, children, or anything else. Her scope of questions should revolve only around the job you were applying ...
  7. Ivy Tech 'Fall 2010' Applicants

    It's interesting to see the different uniform requirements for the different campuses and see the difference in prices for the books. Our uniforms are sandstone pants and top (with a logo embroidered on it) and a white top for second year ASN. I got...
  8. 1st semester book costs

    I bought mine through my bookstore because they came in a bundle. I went on Amazon and priced everything and it was actually cheaper through my bookstore! I was shocked!! I spent about $650.
  9. Ivy Tech Fall 2010 ~ Fort Wayne

    I finally went and got my books, and the lady that "helped" me kept telling me I needed the small nursing diagnosis handbook and I told her "no it's in the box". I had already emailed to find out the contents of the box. She swore up and down, that ...
  10. 2nd degree in nursing WAS IT WORTH IT? GIRL LOST!

    I currently teach at a community college, and it is that same college that I will start nursing school in the fall. Yes, I still plan to teach while in school and even after I'm done and hopefully working as a nurse. Most community colleges and de...
  11. Med Tech, U of Indy...which one?

    How about explaining to your instructors what happened and asking for an incomplete? That way you can catch up and finish your classes and not lose your FA.
  12. Ivy Tech Fall 2010 ~ Fort Wayne

    I was going to go today, but something told me to wait. Now I'm glad I did! Have you called the bookstore to find out about the duplicates? Did you also get your ATI books when you went there?
  13. Care plan guides?

    Greetings everyone, I am hoping someone out there can give me a few suggestions on this subject. I am getting ready to start NS and I know that we have to do care plans. I'm going to assume they teach us how to do these in class, but instructors ca...
  14. Fall 2010 Classes!!

    I'm taking: Fundamentals of Nursing Fundamentals of Nursing Lab Medical-Surgical Nursing Med-Surg Lab Med-Surg Clinical (1 day a week for 10 hours) Online Pharmacology I will also be teaching 3 classes and tutoring/advising 10 hours a week. And ther...

    Do a search for the courses. The books are now required by law to be listed. And all the ISBN's for fall are there. I will warn you though, most of the fundamentals books are packaged together in a bundle.
  16. Ivy Tech Fall 2010 ~ Fort Wayne

    I'm in section B. Which is the smallest section! Well we should be in Fundamentals and Med-Surg lectures together!
  17. Ivy Tech Fall 2010 ~ Fort Wayne

    I can't wait! What section are you in (A-D)? I just wish financial aid would hurry up because I want to get my books so I can start reading. LOL
  18. Pharmacology online?

    Thank you everyone for the advice. Unfortunately, taking it face to face is not an option due to my work. I will start the Pharmacology class 5 weeks before my clinicals, so I will be sort of taking them together! I did medical terminology online a...
  19. Your desired specialty

    Psychiatric nursing. Of course I haven't started school yet, so that may change once I go through clinicals.
  20. I'm really curious as to how many classes do you take at a time in your nursing program? I know where I'll be attending next month, we only do one class at a time for 6-8 weeks, then move onto the next. Do schools really have people take multiple cl...
  21. Can I use my own laptop for a proctored test?

    At the school I teach at (non-nursing classes), you must go to a proctored location and use their computer. You may say cheating isn't your thing, but there is no way for the school to know that. You could easily have notes on your laptop that you ...
  22. How many classes do you take at a time?

    I guess I should clarify. At my program, you would take your Fundamentals of Nursing Lecture and the lab that goes with it at the same time. But it's only those two. Then you move onto Med-Surg Lecture, Lab, and Clinicals. So everything revolves ...
  23. Book rec. for those starting soon

    Thank you for posting this. I have been on the fence about buying this book since I got accepted into my nursing program. I'm off right now to buy it!
  24. iTouch or Old School?

    I've seen quite a few threads where people talk about getting an iTouch or PDA to use for nursing school and clinicals and I'm wondering if it's really something I should be looking into getting. At first I thought of doing it the "old school" way. ...
  25. iTouch or Old School?

    If you get an iTouch or any PDA there is no cell phone bill cost because they aren't cell phones. I'm not talking about the iPhone or a smartphone. Most places I have heard of don't allow you to have a camera or phone on the floor. An iTouch doesn...
