    shut off at 75

    I took the nclex today and felt torn between a lot of questions. After getting home and googling them it seems like I got quite a few wrong. I know they say you have to be doing really horrible to fail at 75, but I do feel like I missed some silly ones. I don't know how to stop stressing about this test!

    Med reconciliation

    I'm a nursing student set to graduate in 3 weeks. I've been having my preceptorship in the ED and today I received a call because a floor manager contacted my boss saying I updated a patient's med list to say they got double the dose of seroquel they were supposed to have while admitted (they only found this out because the patient's GP wondered why she was getting the double dose in the hospital). I remember the patient but I do not remember updating this medication. I feel horrible and don't know what I could have done to fix the situation (that is the worst part). The patient is fine and my boss wasn't mad, but it is really making me question myself and the future. Any advice for the future would be great because now I feel like I don't even want to mess with home med lists.

    doable?

    I guess the school I'm going to, quite a few people do it. I would only need a&p 2 during the first nursing semester (which has 1 class)— I also hear the a&p teacher is great (like actually wants you to succeed). I just wanted some additional advice :)

    doable?

    I was planning on taking a year to finish my remaining "coreqs" but after thinking about it, I would rather take A&P 2 in an 8 week course during my fundamentals class, and then microbiology in the summer after my first year. Has anyone done this? Advice? THANKS!

    bsn or asn?

    No, it's still a two year program. I've looked into ABSN's but I would rather take it the slow and steady route. Maybe it's just something weird on their websites; websites tend to be wrong.

    bsn or asn?

    Really? Weird. I'll have to bring it up when I meet with the nursing recruiter at my school. Online it says they offer a BSN and a bachelor's in nursing for people who already have a bachelor's. The school I go to now seems like a good fit for me, personally. Small class sizes, etc. I would hate to go to a community college where the professors don't care about anything besides failing you. I want support!

    bsn or asn?

    Wait, is there really a difference between a BSN and a BA in nursing? The school I go to now offers a BA in nursing for people that already have four year degrees, although I don't see what is so different about it from the other program? Any insight?

    bsn or asn?

    Well, plenty of people get hired with ADN's where I live, so that really isn't the issue. I just wanted to know what the course load was like in a two year bsn vs. adn. I know the BSN program has you taking more classes, but are the classes just more balanced? I don't know what it would be like to have 5 nursing classes vs. 1 class for my first semester. I know the ADN program only has you taking fundamentals first semester, while the BSN has you taking 5. Any advice?

    bsn or asn?

    Wow thanks!! I have test anxiety too :/ boo!

    bsn or asn?

    Hey guys! Is two years of a bsn program more rigorous than two years of an asn program? I will graduate from college this year, and want to go back for nursing. I don't know if I should go the bsn route or asn route. I will already have the first two years done for the bachelor's degree... so what do you think? It is very frustrating trying to decide what is best for me!

    What school should I choose?

    Also, I'm not sure if nursing school is very competitive around here or not... I do not know what to expect! I had a class who said her grades weren't very good, and got in to one. And another friend said she took TEAS and got in right away... HM!

    What school should I choose?

    Well, I live in the middle of 2 cities that are about the same distance from one another. And good to know; they require an 80 for admission, otherwise you have to take some "nursing strategies" class...

    What school should I choose?

    Hey all, So I'm debating between two community colleges. Both of the colleges require about the same pre-reqs. However, one of the schools has you take TEAS and the other one doesn't. The school that requires TEAS seems more willing and able to help you through the program, giving you more than one chance to redo a class, and the other kind of seems like a weed out program (because they can accept anyone). The college that makes you take the TEAS changes grading scales from first year to second year; first year you need a 78, and second you need an 80, while the other program is a 77, I *believe*. Does this seem doable and the norm? THANKS!

    Non-Nursing Undergrad trying to get into Nursing

    I am right along with you guys. I graduate this coming spring and I am going to finish my prereqs NEXT year. I decided I wanted to do nursing the spring semester of last (my junior) year. I had my eye on an ABSN program, and was trying to take the prereqs along with my other core classes. Apparently taking physics, A&P, along with a few writing intensive classes is just too much:wavey:. I ended up dropping, but have decided to stay with nursing. I'm going to finish my prereqs next year, and then start. My advice would just be to start slow. I was super excited to start the accelerated program after graduation, that I didn't realize that I should be taking my time. Life is confusing, especially after you've already spent 4 years working for something that you essentially don't care about! HAHA. Anyway, good luck, and take your time— it'll go by whether you want it to or not :)
