    Memorial Hermann is planning on unpaid GN intersnship

    This is a huge step back for nurses. We should demand better. As a profession nursing has worked hard to earn respect as professionals. NO ONE should work for free. It is ridiculous to even consider a "program" like this. They will only offer programs of "slave labor" if individuals are dumb enough to sign on to something like this. If no one signs up for free slave labor, they will boot the idea. To remain a respected professional field nursing must say no to such insults. When was the last time a police officer or fire fighter was asked to work for free? This does nothing but drive the overall salary for nursing further down. Nurses need to learn to look at the overall picture for their profession and want to uplift and support it, not drag it back to the old days where nurses were just dense, "yes doctor, whatever you say sir". :flmngmd:

    how to study for nclex?

    I did Kaplan and got 65 on diagnostic and 67 on readiness test. Have been doing 100-180 questions and feel I get myself confused since I try using their "decision tree" now. Feel like I am losing my mind studying for this test.

    Took my NCLEX-RN today!

    Congrats Ladies! I did Kaplan also and am currently trying to review between residency orientation. ONE QUESTION: What average scores where you getting on the Kaplan trainers and pre/post test? They told us 60-65 was good but I feel like it leaves so much to guess?? Thanks.

    Cardiac Stepdown - meds, skills needed

    Thanks you for the info!
  14. Well looking forward to starting my new career Tuesday in a large hospital within a 36 bed Cardiac ICU step down unit. Looking for pointers and/or any specific drugs/skills you would suggest becoming super familiar with. I am excited and terrified at the same time. Also, I am trading in my cardiology III stethoscope for a master cardiology. Question is, does the 22 vs. 27 inch tubing make a great difference? Any advice welcome. :redbeathe:nurse:
