    Kingsborough Fall 2014 Clinical Applicants!

    Nursing exams are tricky they are not based on just recalling information .. You must take what you learned and apply it through critical thinking. I would suggest buying a fundamentals of nursing NCLEX style question book for practice questions they help a ton, you can probably also find some online for free! I hand wrote all my notes and made outlines for the tests reading, hearing the lecture, writing my outlines studying those, and then doing practice questions is how I studied all through out the program. Best of luck, if I could help with anything else feel free to reach out!

    North shore-LIJ Critical care fellowship 2015 oct

    The postings were already taken down .. they put them up and take them down quickly. You have to closely watch out for them or research when their new classes being. By doing a quick google search of nursing fellowships north Shore lij you should be able to find the information.

    RN-BSN student first PICOT question help!

    Thank you so much for your insight, I appreciate it! I should have thought of the implications behind my statement, I will try to come up with another one that is more in the realm of my practice.

    RN-BSN student first PICOT question help!

    I am new nurse who jumped right into a RN-BSN program, so besides clinicals I have no work experience as a RN yet. But, if I am understanding .. I should change it to (ex. therapeutic touch w/ medication vs. just medication)? As for as how to measure the outcome I haven't thought of that yet I'm just trying to get a handle on the format. How would that work with a situation like this that is so subjective?

    RN-BSN student first PICOT question help!

    Hi all! I am currently enrolled in a online RN-BSN program and this weeks lesson was on EBP and formation of a PICOT question. Although this is not part of my coursework this week, I wanted to get some practice in because I know this will become more prevalent as I move on into the program. This was my first stab at a PICOT question and I think I may be somewhat on the right path, but am feeling really unsure. Any insight will be helpful! Thanks in advance =) P - hospitalized patients with chronic pain I - alternative/complimentary methods of pain control (i.e. therapeutic touch, music, biofeedback, guided imagery) C - alternative/complimentary methods of pain control (i.e. therapeutic touch, music, biofeedback, guided imagery) PLUS pain medication administration as per MD order. O - For hospitalized patients with chronic pain, does alternative/complimentary methods of pain control (i.e. therapeutic touch, music, biofeedback, guided imagery) have more effective control over pain when combined with pain medication, as opposed to administering pain medication alone?

    Why did you become an MA?

    I became an MA to get my feet wet, and gain some hands on experience in the medical field. I knew it would be nothing compared to nursing, but I truly value my 6 years of experience as an MA. I learned a lot of valuable lessons that I will carry with me as I begin my nursing career.

    FAILED NCLEX RN 5 times! Desperate need of help!

    Try Uworld, I think it's $50.00 for a month subscription but well worth it. The rationales are great very extensive and informative. It was one of the resources I used along with Kaplan and hurst. I learned so much from the program. Don't give up, you made it through school .. you can do this!

    2015 Pearson Vue Trick

    Yes you actually have to hit submit for it to work. What you can do is .. enter your correct card information with an invalid expiration date to avoid an actual charge going through! If it's the "good" pop-up it will tell you an exam has recently been scheduled and another registration cannot be made at this time. With the "bad" pop-up it would tell you that your card information is invalid because it was trying to bill you for another exam.
