  1. That is a fact. You are absolutely correct.
  2. This is exactly what I did and what led me to the school I am now. I did all my prerequisites at a college in the city that I live. I had a 3.5 gpa and got an 89 on the HESI entrance exam. I did not get into the program. I applied to a school out of state, which is 30 mins from the city I live in....I got in and did not have to take an entrance exam. I am also at an advantage as I dont have other classes to take with my clinical. Im in my first clinical now. have three more to complete to graduate.

    Nursing school is killing my relationship!

    What I admire more about you right now, is your faith....and I encourage you to keep this attitude, cause at the end of the day, God sees us through it all. After we do our part, he does the rest. When you feel weary, just ask Him to carry you, and you and I both know He will. Hopefully your boyfriend will understand....you two will find some balance and your relationship will not go down the drain.

    Nursing School changing criteria to pass classes

    80%???????DAMN. Our pass rate is 75% and that is already as hard and challenging as it is, much less for 80!

    Nursing school is killing my relationship!

    WOW. I started my first clinical this January and that was the first thing my professor spoke to us about...this was a total dose of reality. she said being in the nursing program will determine who is genuinely there for you and who isnt! and she's right. She said a lot of us may lose relationships out of school. She said it's common. Whatever you do, your education is more important than your relationship. that is something you will have FOREVER. not everyone is built the same. if it's one thing we would expect, is for our partner to stick by our side, be our relief and encourage us during such a difficult time, as in the end, both of us would be benefiting from the career. If your partner cannot go through the lows with you and understand your pressure and be of support to you, he CANNOT ENJOY YOUR GLORY. If they cant go through the dirt, they cant enjoy the gold. Right now I am in a long distance relationship. I will be moving when Im done with school. My partner has been encouraging me throughout, especially more now, as I have broken down a lot as school is as hard as it is. He pushes me to study more. When Im on a break, he flies across or I fly, so I can free my mind. He's even made the decision for us to see each other every month rather than every other month. I do not know if it will always continue like this, but Id love for it to. But if it's one thing you don't need right now, is the extra stress....it will affect your education. My advice: speak to him. lay your cards on the table. explain the pressure and how you feel. if he's not willing to go through it, let it go....i can guarantee you that you will find someone who deserves you and prevent you with the support you need and accept you unconditionally. you guys are engaged. if he cant go through this hurdle with you, he's not ready to go through the rest of your life with you! #myopinion *cyberhug*
  6. WOW. Very informative. Reasons why I love allnurses.com. It's like a parent taking care of their child

    Hi jEnny. My old school used the sources you mentioned. I will have to wait for next week to find out. I got some sites from a Nursing Student Handbook that I purchased. I will make use of them. Thanks for your assistance

    There is a public library next to my house. I plan on visiting them to see what information they have.

    Thank you. I am looking in CINAHL right now. Thing with our instructors, a lot of them push you to get information on your own. When you have Adjunct Professors telling you they dont know this and dont know that, it's kinda pointless depending on them. I actually get more information on here than from my school. Thanks again for your help.

    Thank you so much. I was able to get some very good articles on google scholar. prior to you suggesting it, i never knew about google scholar. that's why i love asking questions...it introduces me to new things. Thanks again.

    Thank you mam. Yes I am a student. We are currently on spring break and the school's library is closed. I also live out of state from my school. I am trying to get as much information as I can from all other resources rather than depending on the school's resources alone. I also know that there are experienced people on here who can give the best advice and techniques, that's why I posted asking for other suggestions.

    HELP - need advice!

    Sorry to hear about your situation. You've made the right choice by taking the summer off. That would give you more time to spend with your kids in a difficult time like this. At such time, they need that support and attention. And also you will be able to provide for them both financially (no matter how little, its better than nothing) and emotionally. In a situation like this, family comes first. All the best and hope it works out for the better. PRAY.... ({})

    Clinicals

    I got a Test Success book for Nursing Students..i will follow the method they suggested for studying. They suggested reading the chapters before class and the same day after class or a day after. Im also going to try the study groups. I believe my way of reading wasnt sufficient. The book also suggested getting articles from journals based on the topic being covered. Thanks for ur input will keep u guys posted on my next grade and if the new methods worked
