  1. Hey! I did A&P separately but had several nursing students in my class. It's doable but you have to really budget your time. The nurses in our class had some clinicals out of the local area and that caused conflicts with study time as well as te...
  2. 3 Sciences in 1 Semester????

    All three of those classes require a great deal of study time. If you're disciplined, you could probably do it. Would I suggest it? No. Could I survive it with passing grades? Probably not with grades that made me feel good.
  3. **Fri., July 15 FALL STARTERS**

    First rotation is in the LTC attached to the local hospital. I did my CNA certification there last year and it just bummed me out. Oh well, gotta take the good with the bad!
  4. Decisions. decisions

    Another thought: See if the nursing program has evening classes. You're going to be pulling your hair out but you can get everything you want accomplished! Good luck! And, GOD BLESS YOU, cuz I would have to have MASSIVE XANAX if I had 17-25 6th grade...

    RE: Missing orientation. I missed orientation at my school because they CALLED my house and said, "There's a meeting Friday at the school regarding the nursing program." I work out of town this summer making $$ for school. I couldn't go. IF she woul...
  6. PDA's

    I bought the Dell Axim X50v because it's a pocket PC, not just an organizer. I love the WiFi connection and the ability to store an extra 2 Gigs of whatever I need. I also bought the car adapter and the wireless keyboard so I can use it in class. Why...
  7. White Uniform Pants

    My friend wears nude Spanx that come to her knee under hers. She says they are good for support and keeping the coverage limited!
  8. My intent was to show the many cards these people are trying to play to get nurses to join "their cause." The sooner PEOPLE (not just nurses) realize that they can make change without literally paying for it in the form of dues, the better. If anyo...
  9. So...if you have an RN (ADN) would getting a Bachlor's Healthcare Admin really get you any where? Just wondering...

    I am working in telecom in a temporary position making more money than I'll probably ever make in nursing but...I HATE IT. Have you ever been so over something you just couldn't deal? I've traded in my love for techno for nursing. I can't WAIT. Cra...
  11. Anyone thinking about med-school?

    I haven't thought about med school but I have thought about P.A. school. Just seems as rewarding with better hours than an N.P. Any thoughts regarding my perception are welcome!
  12. Stethoscope Questions... Please Help!

    The Master may be overkill but, if you have a problem hearing sounds with others talking around you the Master is THE TICKET! Our class even bought our instructor one for Christmas because she commented on how much easier it was to use! Another sell...
  13. attiitudes on caring for Chronic pain patient

    I watched my mother die from one of the most painful cancers, bone cancer. She could not move, someone hitting the bed would send her into shocking pain, and riding in a car was excrusiating. Nothing short of a morphine drip eased her pain. (It also ...
  14. We have a cosmotology school at our community college-they give discounts (20%!!) on all haircare products like shampoo, curling irons, and color kits to students. We're talking HIGH END products! See if your school has some deals like that and let u...

    I gave my notice too! I'm so outta here on Aug 1. I can't wait to spend the month of Aug with my daughter. School starts Aug 22. I'm starting to freak-even though I bought a PDA and I've been playing with it to get a good feel for how it can help me ...
