    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!

    Kingsborough Fall 2014 Clinical Applicants!

    @lalalovesz Hi and congrats on getting into the program! Sure I would love to help, feel free to ask whatever questions you have.

    Don't focus on scores it will drive you mad, make sure your learning from the rationales as to why you got things right and wrong! I used multiple sources when studying for NCLEX but Uworld was my favorite because of the detailed rationales. Make sure the day before your exam you rest brush up on some light topics I only did infection control and lab values. You will not know everything on your exam, but by using critical thinking; breaking down the questions and answers and using test taking strategies (ABC's, adpie, safety, least invasive ect) you will be fine! Good luck to you!!

    Mount Sinai Phone Screen

    @jrnewgradRN how was your phone interview? What type of questions were you asked? I am a relatively new nurse and have a phone interview scheduled for this coming week. Any info you could offer would be greatly appreciated!!

    Mount Sinai Hospital - phone screen interview

    Hi all! I am relatively new nurse [never got around to changing my name on AN .:sigh:.] and have received an e-mail to complete a phone screen interview for Mount Sinai Hospital (specifically for OR/peri-operative nursing). I am looking to know if anyone has recently gone through this process, and what type of questions might be asked. Thanks in advance!

    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!
