  1. Took the nclex the 2nd time around, and failed. Anybody have any study tips?

    I am still in school...studying, but all of my professors and almost the whole of the graduating class who just passed their NCLEX on the first try swear by Saunders. They have a ton of books and materials to choose from, from huge question books to ...
  2. Should I drop out?

    Don't even think about quitting!! You're doing a great job! Nursing school is not like any other experience...it takes time to figure out how to study effectively and find your groove. Keep at it! I promise you will be grateful if you do! We are all ...
  3. Anyone attending Gurnick Academy LVN program??

    I am just starting the second module at the San Mateo location and I agree with Christine - ignore all the naysayers...they don't even go here! :) I really do love my classes and the instructors here are great. Everyone here treats eachother like fam...
  4. Gurnick Modesto or Xavier Stockton LVN program?

    Well, they will give out books and syllibi and give you orientation. Introduce you to instructors, staff, etc. Then you get down to business! Don't be too worried, you will do great! You seem to already realize it will require work and determination-...
  5. Things you would love to say to your fellow nursing students!

    *Stop talking during class!! I paid 30K to be here and I want to hear what the hell the prof is saying! *Flats are NOT appropriate footwear with scrubs...even if they are white! *I am SOOO glad that you have made such great friends with the other st...
  6. Greatest Lpn to Lpn student advise you can give....

    Strive for excellence but don't beat yourself up when you slip once or twice. Even the best students get a quiz or two that they mess up on. Read everything! Have a good attitude - always! Remember it is a privelege to take care of your clinical pati...
  7. Gurnick Modesto or Xavier Stockton LVN program?

    I go to Gurnick in San Mateo, and I have to say that I really enjoy it! I just started my second Module and Christine is right, it is a lot of homework and you have to really want it. It is an accelerated program and it's not for everyone, but I prom...
  8. care plan books for LVN students

    I understand why your prof doesn't want to overwhelm you (there is A LOT) but I think getting a more comprehensive (read: bigger) book will give you more options and more information when it comes to writing out those care plans. The right info makes...
  9. Gurnick Academy Loan Options

    I ended up using Sallie Mae. I looked around and found that there were not that many places that were offering private student loans with lower interest rates. Often times, after a quick google search, it turned out their competitors had tons of comp...
  10. You MUST be freaking kidding me!?

    There are people out there that have studied their butts off, passed their NCLEX and then applied to jobs for 6+ months before ever being hired! Be grateful that you already have a place of employment that is willing to hire you as soon as they have ...
  11. How many use a car for class/clinicals?

    Car. I live in a big city (near San Francisco) with great mass transit, but I've been going to school at night, and I don't especially feel safe riding the bus home at 10:30 at night...alone.
  12. San Francisco Private LPN School

  13. Anyone Starting Gurnick Academy Concord Campus For January 2011?

    I'm also in the PM group! Yay! At least we'll know each other! :) Let's definitely keep in touch! My email is brittneyigoodgame@gmail.com - needless to say, my name's Brittney! LOL. I ended up with about 8500$ left over - I got a Sallie Mae loan. See...

    I am starting Gurnick soon too...they are CRAZY busy because of last minute applications and trying to get student financial aid done before the April 11 prereq. start date! Take Christine2009's advice: call the main number in san mateo and keep tryi...
