I know a lot of people wear compression socks but they have some compression leggings that have help me so much. I just wanted to share them. If you are interested they are the old navy elevate compression leggings. They have been saving my back and help to make me less tired at the end of the day.
these ones are for anyone who is cold at work all the time. They are soft and cozy. I work in the or. So they are a life saver.
I am not getting anything from anyone for posting this. I just wanted to share with anyone who was interested.
I am currently on the RN to MSN track to ed. I asked to be switched to Informatics. I am just concerned about the classes. Was anything a pain in the ass class like biochem? Stats I am a math wiz no worries there for me. Also job prospects??? are you currently looking?

you got some great tips here I passed last april one big tip I found was working from the scoring tool. It is subjective in grading so look at the scoring tool make sure you are hitting everything you need to do to pass.
1. How long did it take to finish the Excelsior nursing classes?
about 3 and a half years finished april of 2016
2. Approximately how much did you study?
not very much at all
3. Did you study from the provided materials or use things like mystudygroup101?
I started off testing out of material but then when I failed one exam I lost my courage and started taking the online 8 week classes. I loved those.
4. If you used just mystudygroup101 did you pass your tests ok?
for health saftey and reproductive health I did and passed fine
5. What did you do to prepare for the CPNE?
I studied like I was in grade school. I read everything once. I used the scoring tool to understand the grading process. I would rewrite my mnemonics everyday until I memorized them. I had learned what nursing dx's go with which area of care and worked with what I was giving as an assignment and created my careplan to cater to what I already had to do.
6. How well prepared were you for the NCLEX?
I failed the first time. But I didnt study. The second time I was a bit more serious. Passed with flying colors.
7. Did you pass the NCLEX on the first try.
no. It takes alot of stamina to sit for 265 questions. I got up to 180 and all the letters on the screen started to blur and I gave up and failed. The second time I went in prepared to sit for all 265 and walked out after 75.
I took excelsior and passed. I was in no rush finished everything in about 3 and a half years the wait time for the cpne was about 8 months and the test is no walk in the park but i passed my first time last April. good luck!!
I took it and passed it. It is informative but a killer on time. I just did all the task and attended the live sessions. I was able to attend from my cell phone while driving a car and all sorts of things from the zoom app

about 5 years ago they implemented some kind of five year rule for credit acceptances. and you do not have to pay the 100 dollar fee before they evaluate your transcripts you just have to pay the application fee for that.
My best study tip is to act like we are in grade school getting a spelling test. Rewrite it everyday until you learn it and can rewrite it with out looking at the original. If you hesitate you have to rewrite it again that day.
