    I ran out of time and passed!!

    If you run out of time they take the last 60 questions you answered and base it on that

    Another NCLEX Shut off in 85 questions thread

    Well nclex stops giving you questions when it's 95 percent sure your ability is clearly above or clearly below passing standard. It looks like you received higher level questions so I would guess that you passed.

    HELP! LPN-RN Hesi exam!

    Let me guess. You go to MATC? I would say focus on test taking strategies. That's something they aren't teaching in the program. Content is always good to know (Saunders is amazing) but it's being able to narrow down the answers because an option will have "always" or "never" or two comparable options that helped me.

    bryant and stratton nursing

    I would avoid attending B&S all together. We have a couple here in Wisconsin. Their standards are much lower than other colleges. A passing grade is 70 percent as opposed to the technical colleges and 4 year universities which is 80 percent. Not only that, they are extremely expensive and if you don't graduate, you're still stuck with the debt. Accreditation is also an issue. I have a friend who was in her last semester of the LPN program and she found out that they are only a candidate for accreditation. Beware.

    LPN to RN path choice affect on financial aid

    As long as you haven't exceeded 150% of your financial aid for your program, you will still be eligible for financial aid for the associates in nursing as well as a bachelors if you choose to continue. But for me, I was taking bachelors program classes in an anticipation of transferring but eventually decided to just do LPN. Ive exceeded the Rule and won't be eligible for aid until I am accepted into a bachelors program so it varies from person to person.

    Nursing Care plan

    Do you have a sparks and taylor care plan book? Its a life saver and has the diagnosis, interventions, rationales, risk factors and more. Also, I think your goals should be more specific and measurable like stating a deadline, etc.

    Do you have a Sparks and Taylor care plan book? They're really helpful and they also have the rationales too.

    Planners: Digital vs. Paper

    If you're not comfortable with technology, then I wouldn't suggest starting now with your important assignments, quizzes, etc. Personally, I love a paper planner. I like not only being able to write it down, but there's just something about having a physical copy as opposed to a digital copy that I love. It can't get accidentally deleted or something. Lol. And I just use the one my school provides every semester and it gets the job done. It has both a weekly and monthly view but I found myself primarily using the monthly view pretty early on in the semester because we mainly had exams and only few assignments. I wanted an Erin Condren calendar as well but its just so expensive.

    Injection question! Need help.

    10ml syringe. Its more accurate

    How would it be elevated? All your doing is finding a baseline to take the bp instead of just pumping it to a random number (ex 200mmhg) I'm not adding 30 mmhg to the bloodpressure, just finding a number to pump the cuff up to to find the right bp.

    Study Methods/Habits

    Go over the powerpoints and any supplemental notes you wrote everyday a little at a time for at least 4-5 days before the exam. Read a slide and try to remember what it said without looking at it to see if you retained it. Try to remember any important info from the instructor that was told to you on each slide. Hope this helps.

    How to cure senioritis?

    Your motivation should be that you're almost done and that you don't want to have worked so hard in the last 4 years for it to be all for nothing. Good luck!
