  1. Male Nurse Disgusted by Female Nurses

    Isn't he doing in this post EXACTLY what he is complaining about. Except instead of crying in a bathroom he is venting to strangers on social media. Why isn't he out there trying to unite the nurses on his unit to bring change? This post reeks of hyp...
  2. Is the ATI TEAS really that difficult?

    From here on out, you have to really shift your grading perspective, LOL. Entrance exams for nursing are hard. For both TEAS and the other one whose name escapes me, people rarely get in the 90's. However, nursing schools aren't expecting you to get ...
  3. Rant. Questions are killing me!

    If it says "enlist the help of a family member", then that family member is present and available. Unless it specifically says otherwise, NCLEX is a perfect world. If one of the answers lists a person, a medication, a provider, a family member, etc, ...
  4. When to Start U-World

    I *knock on wood* will be graduating early June of next year. I want to schedule my NCLEX asap. I am certain I want to use U-World as part of my prep. If money is not an issue, how early would you start U-World prior to graduation? 3 months? Is 6 mo...
  5. Getting pregnant during last semester or during new job?

    The old school "make sure you get married first" annoys me. But I know that's because I've been in a committed unmarried relationship for 10 years. A ring wouldn't make our commitment any stronger. Anyway, to OP: I would wait until after nursing sch...
  6. I'm Back!

    It's been well over a year since I have been active in AN! I've been in the shadow the last 2 months but I finally signed in to say hi. Long story short, my brother got into some wonderful legal trouble that required my financial help which was short...
  7. WILT 11/5: No Fast Track for YOU...

    11 days to my birthday 29 days until the last day of class 34 days until my final Thats literally my mantra every day right now. School is not particularly hard, I just learned that I am *over it* right now. I'm so ready to be done with this semes...
  8. So is there really a nursing shortage?

    So what I am saying is that the shortages are a) regional-- think places where people don't want to live and b) for experienced nurses in most places
  9. So is there really a nursing shortage?

    Same where I live. I was doing clinicals on a tele unit earlier this semester and the floor manager told us that the hospital system officially declared itself as having a nursing shortage. She said that after hiring new grads this past spring, they ...
  10. WILTW 10/29: Trauma for breakfast

    I've realized just how much I miss the app. . I used to be on AN pretty much every day, but now if I check in once a month that feels like alot. Using the website feels so cumbersome now. After spending the prior 7 weeks doing cardiac med-surg in sc...
  11. New Grad Negotiations

    Thanks! I didn't know when was the best time to ask. When filling out an application, one of them actually had a spot for desired salary that was mandatory. I had no clue what to put in there so I just used a number that I have heard previous new gra...
  12. New Grad Negotiations

    I was hoping to hear if this was at all possible because most of the posts when other new grads ask all say, no don't ask and just be grateful you have a job. What is wrong to coming to a forum filled with thousands of nurses who have already experie...
  13. New Grad Negotiations

    Now before everyone jumps down my throat let me explain. I currently live somewhere where there actually IS a nursing shortage. It's October, and the hospitals are already starting recruitment efforts for those of us that graduate in May. Unexpected...
  14. Highest Paid NP for 2015, According to AANP, Are NNPs

    I am disappointed, and yet somehow not surprised to see that Women's Health pays the least. I wonder why. And I wonder if CNM's are included in that umbrella.
  15. I am RARELY on here now that there is no App. I miss it, but I find being on the desktop version, whether on mobile or my computer to be so disappointing. I mean, seeing as to how school starts in 11 days it's better to NOT have something else to dis...
