  1. Hi guys, I am currently in NYC as an LPN in a job that I really like work three days 12hours shift. Full salary benefits retirement plan big organization, but I want to expand my education and opportunities in nursing so I was thinking of doing an BS-BSN program since I already have a Bachelor's degree. The only problem is I have a low gpa 2.5 to be exact so I might have to go out of state to a 12month program, which might lead me to leaving my awesome high paying LPN job. My other option is to do a 15months LPN to RN program in NJ. It being that I am only 25 with no kids or any major responsibility maybe I should attempt the BSN program since I will like to have a MSN degree one day. The Acceleration program will cost 60K, with a relocation to a new location and the ADN program will cost 7K huge difference what do you guys suggest any advice would be appreciated.
  2. I wanted to know what area are you by and what are the name of some schools there?
  3. Hey guys I am currently looking for a private college in the U.S that might accpet a GPA of 2.49 in there accelerated BSN program. I am a LPN I had a higher gpa in my LPN program a 3.0 to be exact but when I statred working on my BS in health service Administrations I was working over 40hours a week, so that affected me. I have great recommendations and I currently work in a Hospital in NYC as a nurse so I hope that can help me get into a BSN program. I know the chances of being accpeted is based on where u live, and I heard private schools maybe expensive but they are less competitive I don't mind paying the loans back, do any one know a accredited private school or any school that might take a 2.49 gpa and look at the fact that I have strong nursing experience in a hospital. Please let me know of. Thanks

    Pearsonvue Trick - Does it Work Every Time? Part 3

    Does the PVT work ? I took the NCLEX PN earlier this morning and I just did the trick, before I did it and it said delivered successful. I studies very hard and the exam made me finish the whole 205 question I the PVT thing and it said "Our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Please contact your Member Board for further assistance. Another registration cannot be made at this time." can you explain it to me. Thanks

    Gauging how prepared I am for NCLEX?

    mommyof2Tees.. I know its useful but some of the intervention giving for the situations are meant to be implemented by a RN, and I don't want to know them so that I will not select an option on the nclex thats is beyond my scope of practice. I just wanted to know if I can get the same in for but for an LPN's scope of practice.

I already Know the "ABC, Least Invasive First" what more do I need to know can you explain the "what can I do before calling the MD" and "Patient before Equipment". I am taking my nclex in two weeks, please give me all the info that you think will be beneficial. Thanks.

    Nervous about Nclex pn

    I took the exam on 12/2/11 too and my exam stopped on 121 and I felt horrible. I am too scared to use the pvt.

    Passed nclex-pn

    I registered over the phone the first time, and my mother told me that I should wait until monday since the pop up isn't the official results and in the mean time keep praying and stay positive. I felt that the exam was not as hard as it was my first time. Some questions had me clueless. The answer choices presented was either too close to each or an intervention that I felt were in appropriate. For example " a nurse saw a post partum patient sitting in the bathroom floor, what should nurse initiate first"..(a) go get a wheel chair (b) ask her what happened © help her stand (d) go get the supervisor.... My answer was (A) because we are not suppose to leave the patient will should try to understand the reason she is sitting maybe she wasn't injured. The whole exam had me worried I answered 121 questions before it shuts off. I found it a lot easier than my first time and but not easy enough for me to be confident that I passed because a lot of the meds had me confused. I am just worried Please preay for me. :)
