    CCRN Exam

    Hey! I just wanted to start a thread because there is so little info out there on how to study for the CCRN exam! I took it today and passed but tried to find information about how people studied, what they studied and how long they studied for! Everything I found was super outdated or didn’t have any info on it! So hopefully this can be helpful for others

    Mission Trips

    Hey everyone!! I was posting to hopefully seek some information about mission trips! I want to go on a trip with a few of my nursing friends abroad to volunteer. Does anyone know of any organizations? Or has anyone gone on one? I would love to hear what organization you went through and about your experience! I've looked into one called Faith in Practice that goes to Guatemala that looks interesting! Thanks so much, I really appreciate it :)

    9 months of nursing & not confident

    Hey! I have been working now for seven months, going on five months of being by myself. I think your feelings are totally normal. I too work on a cardiac unit, its a mixed ICU and step-down. I mostly have step-down patients, or "very light" ICU until I gain more experience to take care of sicker patients. I feel like one day I feel okay and the next I feel like I know nothing. Just today I was thinking about how I feel like I need to work on critical thinking quickly when a patient is going south. Personally, I think you're having these emotions because you deeply care about what you're doing. I think its a good thing to question your practice and know what you need to work on because it will make you a stronger nurse. I would say just keep asking questions and absorbing everything you can. I too got really interested in the OR and told myself to give it a year before I changed. I feel like now I know I am where I am supposed to be. Cardiac may not be your thing and that's okay too, I think time will help you figure that out. If you ever need to talk, I'm here for you!

    Capella Flexpath MSN progam

    Hi Everyone! I recently got accepted to Capella University's online Flexpath program for Nursing Leadership and Administration. I was hoping other people out there have gone through the program and/or are currently going through it and would be willing to share some information with me?! I was hoping to find out if you all like the program, how many classes you typically complete in the 12 week period? Do you find it doable or very rigorous? Thanks for any input! :)
