    2014 Pearson Vue Trick (PVT) Poll

    All smiles right here!!! Tested on 6-24. Computer shut off at 75 questions. I was scared out my mind. I couldn't stop shaking until after I left the testing center. Found a computer and tried to register. It wouldn't let me. I had to be sure so I waited for the unofficial results (the longest 48 hours of my life!!) Paid for the quick results and it said status: PASSED!!!! I am so excited. The PVT worked for me!

    Calling graduating class of 2014!

    Its like a job shadowing. Your put with a nurse and at my school we have to do 120 hours before the end of the semester. Its getting us out of the mind set of clinical and into independent nursing role.

    How old were you when you started Nursing School?

    Started at age 26 and will be pinned, (Lord willing) on my 29th birthday :-)
  9. I had to take Med/Surg over. It really hurt my feelings because I didn't fail by much. But I had a lot going on and it was understandable. My head wasn't in it. My year off, I took the remaining pre-req courses that I needed (some for ADN and some for BSN just in case) I was focused and still am. At my school you can get re-admitted once but if you fail again your out of the program. The work doesn't get easier but you know you have to work harder. My grades are back to the usual 'B'. The second time around made me stronger. Good luck to you. Keep your focus.

    ADN class of 2013

    You have to do what right for you. You study hard and you can do anything you put your mind to. Your a great person and you have always had kind words of encouragement for me. I know your a great nurse to your patients

    ADN class of 2013

    I am so happy for you. I know you worked really hard. I cannot wait to graduate and start my BSN. I talked with a school and I have taken all the pre-req for the program so all they are doing is looking for me to graduate, pass NCLEX, and apply. I feel better this time around. I eliminated a lot of things that were stressing me out in my personal life. Just School, my daughter and me. How are you liking OR nursing?

    ADN class of 2013

    ORnurseCT Well hello. I hope this is the same person, just a name change. Congrats to you!!! I haven't heard from you in awhile. I graduate next year, Lord willing. I had a lot of stuff going on 2nd semester and I had to repeat but everything is going great. I'm number 4 in my class so I will soon be like you :-) Take care and enjoy

    Past my Med Competency Test! Went today to see which ones I missed and she was like "Porsche, you didn't miss any" Get it now. If I can do this on the theory tests, I will be awesome.
