  1. I finished nursing school

    Today was my last day of a full semester of nursing school... I have a 4 week psych nursing course starting Monday haha. I'm so thankful the semester is over!! Very stressful. I spent about 2 hours laying on my couch today thinking, "I feel really l...
  2. What's in Your Backpack?

    In my backpack: two binders with powerpoints and handouts, a folder with assignments, more lecture stuff, a 5 subject notebook for notes, a ton of notecards, lots of pencils and pens, tampons, contact solution, ibuprofen. In my clinical bag: two fold...
  3. 80 or above is passing!

    Mine is 80 as well. Study hard and you shouldn't have a problem.
  4. Favorite Nursing Class

    It might be a tie between med-surg, OB/peds, and psych. Basically I like everything but nursing management. Lol
  5. Stupid classmate tricks

    Haha, I swear I have the same student in my classes.
  6. Do you think this schedule/routine will work?

    Honestly, this won't work. Don't try to plan and map out every detail of every moment of your life. Even in nursing school. It's not necessary. That said, you can plan all you want but will you actually be able to stick to it? For example, after alm...
  7. I would go to pinning. But I'm sentimental like that haha. If you do call HR about their open house, ask how often they have them.
  8. I don't think I want to be a nurse anymore

    While I don't think nursing is for everyone, it's entirely possible to just have a bad semester! You don't have to give up. In the end you have to do what you feel is right for you in this. But if it took you 3 hard years to get here, I think you sho...
  9. Stupid classmate tricks

    Yep. I always feel like they're really asking, "this sounds hard, do I really need to learn it?" Especially when it's the main point of a two hour lecture.
  10. Using "Medical" terms

    Well, we can say "fluid volume deficiency," instead of dehydration. There are ways around using medical diagnoses. On the other hand, isn't "constipation" an actual nursing diagnosis? I don't think I've ever actually used it so I don't remember. But ...
  11. What are you doing summer break?

    Psych nursing 4 weeks of May/June. Pinning in July. I plan to start getting back into yoga and pilates again! And get some (hopefully a lot) of reading done. Otherwise, spend time with family, enjoy the weather, and relax a bit. In addition to workin...
  12. Stupid classmate tricks

    There's an older woman in our class who feels the need to say "bless you" after every time someone sneezes in class. It sounds polite and nice, until people have sneezing fits during tests in the winter months. Bless you, bless you, bless you, bless ...
  13. Pinned leg

    Read my last post
  14. Pinned leg

    Well we all had urged him immediately to go to the ER or doctor. The only reason ice came up from any of us (there were 5 of us not including this man) is because he kept refusing to go. Several of us said we'd check in on him. Anyway, he did end up ...
  15. Pinned leg

    I realize I forgot to mention that I am actually an LPN. He told them I'm a nurse, later (less than 10 minutes later) mentioned I was finishing my RN. I did say not to ice longer than 20 minutes. My boyfriend and I tried to go to his house about 2.5...
