  2. I am reading my syllabus correctly???!!!??? Foley Cath's

  3. What do you think of this ?

    I am literally 'on' and now 'off' my third nursing school, and I am contemplating not returning to get my RN at all. I didn't flunk out. I left my previous school with a 3.14 GPA with 4 nursing classes underneath my belt: B+, B, B+, and B-. I left my...
  4. I attempted to apply there for Spring 2012. I was not pleased with the lack of professionalism from La Salle. In fact, it was way to the extent that I will never consider applying there again. For anything. I carried a 3.14 GPA, and while I was well ...

  11. I would have graduated from nursing school this semester if I hadn't voluntarily left last spring. My reasons for doing so were twofold. First, it was becoming difficult for me to maintain a decent GPA while working full time....the schedule for the ...
  12. I am not a nurse. I am a sitting on the fence sometimes student nurse. Had several occasions in regards to physicians and my healthcare and in regards to nursing schools this past spring, summer and early fall to make me question my own sanity about ...
  13. If you know someone is going to be fired - do you tell?

    Putting it to you this way: don't get involved if you can. Usually a person can pick up the vibe and know they are going to get fired.
  14. Nursing hours

    I have taught in PA, NJ, and NC....grades 1-3. It wasn't the kids, it wasn't the work, it wasn't the parents, but the administration that made me leave education. My last position as a teacher was in an urban charter school. This school eventually wo...
  15. Nurse market saturation 2015 and beyond ?

    To add to the above....any field you are in or if you are considering entering when you leave college requires a lot of savvy...heed the advice of Jenni811 and Loque.
