    Hey I just wanted to let everyone know about these amazing leggings I have been getting at old navy. 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. https://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=3789020220001&cid=1160115&locale=en_US#pdp-page-content I am not getting anything from anyone for posting this. I just wanted to share with anyone who was interested.
  3. I had 15 classes for bsn but i do not know how many credits like 41. I am in rn to msn
  4. I completed it in 8 months but I wasted two months doing nothing. Hence the comment about procrastination. This program is doable. I liked it. The only thing I did not like was biochem. But that was because you actually have to do real
  5. I am a NY'er. I just finished BSN. I recommend it to the self starter. If you are a procrastinator do another program.

    Just finished the MSN/Informatics

    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?

    22nd Edition CPNE

    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.

    10 yr LPN going to get RN from Excelsior, TIPS?

    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.

    The new 16 hour course

    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
