    North Shore LIJ ED/NICU/PICU Fellowship 2013

    Education is never a waste... Keep at it. I work F/T and I know many of my friends that have graduated with an ADN also work.. not everyone needs to work in a hospital either. Don't give up! You made it through nursing school, you can make it through this!

    RN-BSN at SUNY Empire

    Hi, I am considering Empire State. I have my ADN from a local CC in NY. All my documentation has been received by admissions (essay, transcripts, license, etc), and I am just waiting on acceptance for the January 2014 semester (RN-BSN). I would like to know how competitive it is to be accepted. I am assuming they get many applicants. I graduated with a 3.9 GPA. Also, for anyone that is in the program, how do you like it? Thank you and best of luck!

    NCLEX Without Kaplan Qbank

    I hope so, because that is my game plan too. No way can I afford Kaplan right now. I also found a good app for my iphone, NCLEX Mastery. So, anyone out there pass without these expensive review courses?

    This question has been bugging my class...

    I would choose B.. You must consider the stem and address the priority in this specific circumstance. I agree with the OP..

    LIU Brentwood RN to BSN

    Hello, Does anyone have any information/experience about the LIU campus in Brentwood regarding their RN to BSN program? I am considering their acceptance for the Fall 2013 semester (pending scholarship approval). I realize the school is expensive and have read reviews about the other LIU campuses (not too good). I just want to see if anyone has experienced what it will be like to attend LIU Brentwood and whether I should look elsewhere. Thank you!!

    Doubts about Nursing

    Look up Hypoxic drive and nurses make their own assessment of the patient once they arrive in the er. Removal of a NRB is to see how well the pt. is compensating on room air.

    anyone apply for sccc fall 2011 nursing program?

    Hi Divine, Sure.. I have a 4.0... and yes, it is days at Grant F/T. I'm not sure if I can put anyone at ease, but I was fortunate (in regards to academics, certainly not financially) in the fact that I was unemployed during my pre-req's, plus I have no social life, lol... I also took the Bio's without any other classes. I feel for my classmates that worked throughtout and have families... let me just say a GPA does NOT tell the whole story, not by a long shot.

    She told me she had a 4.0 and was surprised to be wait-listed, but relieved she got in for the Spring 2011. Maybe it's more competitive in the Spring? But your right, I never saw her transcripts...just know her well and can't imagine her lying, kinda pointless...

    Buckeroo, I know a person with a 4.0 that was wait-listed as well, but eventually called into the program. I guess nothing is a guarantee here, so I hear ya on this. Are chances better for the day program? Fingers crossed...:)
