    I Must Be Missing Something

    Thank you DallasRN for sharing. I'm tossing around the idea of doing HH. Still in research phase. At least in the hospital I get paid for every hour worked.

    Why do you visit allnurses.com?

    I come here to learn about different areas of nursing to see if I might be interested in trying another area or specialty. Pros and cons info. I also come here to read other nurses rants and frustrations so I know I'm not alone. It's good and bad everywhere.

    If at First You Don't Succeed

    Excellent article with great application and insight. I love hearing people's personal experiences and how they overcame hardships and trials.. especially when adversity comes from people around us. Love it!

    Friends don't understand ?

    I enjoyed reading this thread because I feel the same way. Even when we tell people about the pressure to get A's because the competition is fierce, we tell them how hard the classes are and all the projects we have and the memorizing we do they just look at us with a blank, clueless half-smile or they say "Oh ya I remember going to school and working too I understand how hard it is. No, if you weren't competing against 100 other people to make the cut just to get into the program while working and juggling a family then NO, you don't understand. Stay strong and focused. True friends will wait for you.

    Nursing Application Photos: Discrimination or Not

    I have often wondered if adding things to my resume like "physically fit" or "able to lift 50 pounds over my head" or "able to run 5k in 20 minutes" would be a positive way to overcome the age discrimination and snap judgment that is inevitable at my age.

    I passed the NCLEX is that a garuntee for me to be a nurse?

    I tend to over analyze these type of questions..I ask myself are they assuming I do know this or I dont know that? this option could be true in this situation but false in another circumstance. sometimes I obsess over one word like "repair" do they mean remove and replace with new or do they mean correct components that are damaged? are there many questions with "choose all that apply"? I hate those.

    UNLV Spring 2011

    Where does UNLV offer clinicals? Do you get to choose a hospital and can you choose the area of specialty? In your courses you just completed, what was hardest or toughest parts? Do you do lots of class presentations and group projects?

    CLEP is a great way to go to save time and money. I CLEPed Soc. 101 by studying the CLEP study guide. I did a little reading on wikipedia sociology as well. I passed first time and I am so glad I did it! I only wish I would have CLEPed more classes a long time ago.
