    Louisiana Nursing Union

    Are there any nurses in Louisiana that would be willing to start a nursing union?

    I recently applied for a few positions at ILH, one being the trauma surgery overflow unit. I'm still waiting on a call back. Is anyone familiar with the trauma surgery overflow unit at ILH? How intense is it? Is it a good place for a new grad to start? Thanks for any info

    Thanks! I don't know what team I'm on, but I have a strong feeling its team 1. Thinking about it, I've been on team 1 every semester....Lol. The coordinator hasn't given us any info besides clinical rotation and practicum schedule.

    I didn't, but two of my classmates that I study with have both worked full time jobs the entire time they've been in nursing school. One does really good, and the other not as good as she'd like.

    Naeema, I spent a total of 163 and some change on all my books(hardcopies) and the only two that are current editions are the Clinical Nursing Skills and Techniques, and the Maternal Child book. All of them were brand new in the wrapping. You'll have to buy 3 extra books, 1 in level 2 and the other 2 in level 3. Depending on how your teacher lectures, who makes the test, and the type of student you are determines how much you'll have to use the books, or if you even need to buy all of the books. Also, none of the instructors that I've had so far have the ebooks, except the level 1 pharm instructor and I'm now in Level 4. Someone mentioned the Success books, which I hate, I used them my first semester and my grades for the first and second test were in the 70s, I stopped using them and my grades for the remaining test were in the high 80s. However, a few of my friends that I study with use the success books only along with their notes from class and they always do great on every test. You'll definitely have to find out what works for you, and find out fast...Lol. Good Luck!!

    SueBoo, Great Choice. I've heard great things about that team as far as lecture goes...I was on team 1 in Level 2. I like the fact that you guys are going to be rotating through 3 different clinical sites. Good Luck!!

    Sorry I'm late responding, but you got who you wanted anyway....Congrats! University is great, and so is the instructor. She is so sweet. Tracemee, evening clinical with that instructor at west jeff is a good choice. He is an awesome instructor.

    Congrats on making it to Level 2 SueBoo78! Who'd you get for level 2? Congrats to you too Naeema on getting in!! I would suggest you go to school to register. There is always a problem with registration, and the students that are at school registering always find out what the problem is and when its fixed first. The library opens up at 8. University is a great site for clinical...you get so much experience, however, being on that team you'll have to work(study) extra hard to pass. Ochsner kenner is an excellent choice...the clinical site isn't as great as University in terms of seeing a lot of stuff(gunshotwounds, badcaraccidents, etc.), but its good and you'll get experience, and that team is GREAT in lecture.

    Charity SON Fall 2014

    I was accepted Fall 2012 with a profile score of 85. The cutoff score was 75 or 70. I've heard from many people that the cutoff score is higher in Fall than it is Spring. Don't know how true that is though. Good Luck!!!

    She's a great lecturer!!! But I heard she was very hard and demanding in clinicals.

    I listen to the lectures on my recorder or on Tegrity about 2 times, and then I study from the chapter. YES! You have to read the chapters bcuz thats where the test questions come from. Every chapter is in to 2 parts. The first part is a refresher of a&p and symptoms of a disease. The second part is the nursing process. The nursing process is the most important part of the chapter, but you have to read the first part to understand the second part. Read the boxes and the tables in the chapter that they tell you to read too. Also, break the test question down and understand what the question is asking you.

    Congrats on passing!! Do you know anything about any of the instructors for Level 2?

    Study!!! and stay ahead. When you go to orientation they're going to give you your 1st reading assignments; read them and make sure you understand them before school starts. Read all of your material before the lectures. Buy a tape recorder, and record all the lectures. When you're studying dissect every part of the chapter. Make sure you get in a study group, and discuss each chapter, ask each other questions to see how much y'all have learned. They told us to read and learn the objectives because that was what the test we're suppose to be based off, but that wasn't helpful. The test material didn't come from the objectives. The test are designed to make you think like a nurse. Always ask yourself what would the nurse do FIRST. A lot of people say it's hard, but it's really not. You have to study a lot, stay ahead, and be dedicated. Don't get discouraged if you fail a test, because you can still pass. Try to get good grades in the beginning so you can have some slack at the end of the semester for the final. Pharmacology was easy. The instructor is GREAT. There's this book from Barnes and Nobles that will help you learn the drugs. I forget the name, but I'm going to get with my friend who has it and find out the name of it. Also, get the Fundamentals of Success book it will help you learn how to answer the nursing questions. Clinicals are easy. The hardest thing is coming up with a nursing care plan. When your in clinicals try to do as much as you can, if your clinical instructor permits it. Good Luck, If I think of anything else I'll let you know.
