  1. New Grad in Public Health

    Hello all, I am a new grad nurse. I just started part time at a home health/public health agency. I may be moving to full time in the coming weeks. With that being said, I will be helping out with the flu/immunization clinics this month. I have n...
  2. Decisions, decisions.

    Hello all, I'm not sure if my thread is in the appropriate place, but here goes nothing. I am a new grad nurse (graduated in June, passed boards in July). I will be having my first interview with an agency that I'm very interested in working at. How...
  3. Migraines and nursing?

    Based on what I have gotten so far, it would be a good idea NOT to disclose any information about my migraines to a potential employer. That's good to know because I will start interviewing for jobs soon. Also, thank you for the FMLA recommendation. ...
  4. Shut off at 83 questions

    I PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. Not so great Kaplan scores, still passed NCLEX

    Congratulations.. My Question Trainer scores started out pretty bad, but then I ended up with a 60% and 61% on QT 6 and 7. I took my NCLEX about 44 hours ago... Waiting on quick results, and hoping Kaplan paid off :)
  6. Shut off at 83 questions

    I'm sure I'll cry too when I find out... Hopefully they are tears of joy :) 4 hours left of waiting... eek
  7. Took the NCLEX-RN yesterday

    I also took the NCLEX yesterday!! I can relate to your pain of worry since then, lol. I also had about 20 SATA, but no math, or any other alternate format questions. My test shut off after question #83, which is a weird number because it sounds lik...
  8. Shut off at 83 questions

    The first few questions of the NCLEX I thought were easy... But throughout the test, I had some questions that were especially difficult for me and had to make a guess. I was a "B" student in nursing school, and it was a very tough program. So I'd l...
  9. Shut off at 83 questions

    Thank you both. I don't know of too many people who have failed in 85 questions or less, so that is keeping me optimistic. But still.. Is it Thursday yet?!
  10. Shut off at 83 questions

    I took the NCLEX RN this afternoon, and my test shut off after 83 questions. I had around 20 SATA questions... I felt like I bombed it, as everyone does. My fellow classmates have all past so far with either 75 or 85 questions. I feel like 83 is jus...
  11. Taking NCLEX tomorrow

    Tomorrow is the big day. I'm taking the NCLEX tomorrow. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous.... I don't feel terribly confident, however I have been doing the Kaplan Q bank and trainers, and my scores have increased over the last few weeks. I've ...
  12. New Grad LTC

    Extremely helpful, thanks fellow Coloradoan! :) Although like a few posters mentioned, 6 months of orientation in LTC as a new grad is unheard of. Based on what I'm finding out, I would be lucky to get 2-3 weeks. I want to be somewhat picky with ori...
  13. Nursing loans really that bad? 120K

    I just received my ASN (ADN) from a local community college. My student loan debt after the 2 years is around $13,000. I can't even fathom paying $120,000
  14. Migraines and nursing?

    Hi there, Change in sleep habits are absolutely a trigger for me.... But unfortunately that is only one trigger. My triggers include stress, hunger, dehydration, heat, monthly hormonal changes, among others. I cannot determine the trigger with about ...
  15. New Grad LTC

    I am a new grad, ASN (taking the NCLEX on 7/28) and am interested in LTC. In fact, the reason why I wanted to become a nurse was to work with the geriatric population. I don't ever see myself in acute care. That being said, I do have some questions ...
