  1. I am not sure how many they place on the wait list but I do know if you are wait listed make sure you show up to the mandatory orientation. There are always those who were accepted but for whatever reason decide not to attend. If you don't go to orientation on time you won't be accepted

    Help with OB and Peds

    I purchased the book from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Lippincotts-Review-NCLEX-RN-CD/dp/1608311252/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER. I have found this book very helpful in all my nursing classes so far. Wishing the very best!

    Working while in school

    I have just entered my 2nd semester of RN school. Our professors are telling us it is very important to get a job as a CNA while in school as most hospitals in our area (Maryland) are only hiring RN's from within their hospitals. That being said, I currently have my CNA license and have put out A LOT of applications but still don't have a job. My 1st semester of RN school was extremely tough. The material was not so hard, but I am extremely competitive and demand a lot from myself so I spent s lot of time studying. The studying paid off in the grades I received. My humble suggestion for what its worth is that if your husband doesn't care one way or the other you may want to not work during this semester especially if you have children. Give yourself the time to focus on school and adjust to the demands it will place on you, and then try for a CNA position over the holiday break or over the summer. Just my thoughts, will be interesting how more experienced students/RN's respond. Good luck with your schooling. Best decision I have ever made.

    Help with 1st Care Plan

    Thank you so much for the help. I was up all night but I got it written. Hopefully it won't be too marked up when I get it back. This week's care plan should go a little quicker (I hope).

    Help with 1st Care Plan

    I am trying to write my first care plan for a real patient. I have to fill out a Pathophysiology Sheet on the "client's primary admitting medical disease/disorder. My patient is in a rehab facility post surgery for a total hip replacement. She is She is 10 days post op. The principle admitting medical diagnosis to the Rehab facility is "aftercare f/surgery musculoskeletal system NEC. The hip replacement is due to osteoarthritis. The following Medical diagnosis's are Type 11 diabetes, Gen osterarthrosis involving multiple sites, Hypertension, Hyperlipidemia. Should I use the osteoarthritis as the Medical diagnosis and do my path sheet on this? The aftercare.... isn't something I can get from a patho book. I am confused. Thank you.

    On the plus side they told us there are only a few more books needed for the remaining semesters. So at least this should be the last big book bill. Merry Christmas to me!

    The bundles do not have all the required books in them. There are I think approx 5 more required not in bundles. All of the required books with the sale run around $1,050 inc tax. Recommended books are between 350 and 475 depending on where you get them

    Thank you for all of this great information. I received my course bill today, yea? I am in section 001 and very excited. Trying to decide the most cost effective place to get books. I felt the orientation meeting went well, discovered I am not the oldest in the class. I am fulfilling a dream I have had of becoming a nurse since I was very young. Any advice from those that have been where we are is much appreciated. Also, I know during orientation that was a bit of confusion about full time needed for full grant. I too was told that they provide a letter stating its full time and this works. Has anyone heard any s'more info on this' or if you are it he program how does it work between sad course credits 9 and Pell Grant at12.: Looking forward to finally be on the road to RN....WooWoo
