  8. Nursing Games is taking its toll

    Yep the losses can be brutal! 1st semester we started with 30 and by May were down to 7. Now in my next to last semester, we have had some LPN's & students who previously failed out join us, and we have 14. Hopefully everyone makes it!

    I was right! Our prof told the class 1st thing she had made a mistake & gave us another example on the board. We then took our dosage calc exam & I got 100%, which you must get to pass this class. Glad that's out of the way!!! :) Thanks agai...

  16. Hang in there, it is definitely an adjustment! I agree with the previous posters about Maslow and the ABC's. I always follow that! What I also found helpful was doing lots of practice questions in NCLEX books, the ones that give you the rationales...
