    Dismissal from nursing school without failing any course

    It sounds like you have been struggling with the schedule, but the fact of the matter is you had another chance and they dismissed you anyway. Is it documented what the outcome was in the last meeting when they gave you that warning? I hope so, and I would use that when contesting the decision. I would be wary of using the race card when contesting it, I would question if there was some kind of misunderstanding, and "in the letter after our meeting on __/___/_____ I was given the following terms, 'quoted text'". Also with this summer break, I would start contacting other schools and asking their recruiter/advisor about transferring. It's going to really vary by state and school systems. IE was it a private college versus a state, if state is it the same state, etc. Good luck.
  2. Congratulations! What resources did you use to prepare?

    Finished Kaplan--Ready for NCLEX??

    I cannot offer you any advice as I'm studying for my NCLEX, but I do wish to tell you good luck Monday!
  4. First of all, congratulations! Thank you so much for sharing how you studied! I have Kaplan -- and I LOVED the live classes, but as I take the Question Trainers and read through the rationales... well, it's leaving more to be desired. I'm wondering if I should pick up UWorld because I already have tried the demo and I LOVE The depth of explanation and VISUALS. I worry that as I continue through Kaplan I'll spend so much time looking things up for further understanding rather than already have it right there in the rationale. My exam is in 5 weeks, which is perfect timing to use ALL of Kaplan's resources, but now I am trying to figure out how to use both. As someone that has used both, I appreciate your input.

    CSUB Nursing Program for Fall 2014

    Hi Class of 2017 :) I am a new nursing student for the Class of 2018 -- I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they could weigh in if I should buy the books off the "Recommended" list? Thanks! (And I know I sound late to picking up books, I was late to be accepted! :))

    CSU Bakersfield Fall 2015 Nursing

    Hey guys -- they mentioned shoes in the Sim Lab and I was looking at what i've got and I could use a new pair! Anything local good for fitting and comfort (can't do crocs like suggested -- heh!)? I have big, wide, flat feet so internet ordering is usually pretty bad. I'm thinking of driving to LA if I need to...

    The professor for Patho is excellent, one of my favorites in college so far. Not east, but good. Based on student ratings of Patho and my experience of in Physio 255, you do not NEED the book as much as you need his lectures. He will be extremely pissed off if he knows you're not reading the book, but you may be safe to wait till the first day to hear what he says about getting the book. He told us we should get the book from his list, but ultimately any edition would do. IT COULD BE DIFFERENT in Patho, but it may more likely not be different. Or just email him.

    There's two places you can find it: The main way is via this sheet: http://www.csub.edu/nursing/_files/Gen_Ed_Sheet%20%20Effective%20F13%20rev.%2010-13.pdf (I pulled it off the Pre-nursing CSUB page) The other way is via myCSUB, click the "Plan" text link, then there's a button for "My Requirements". Then, use Assist.org to verify classes you've taken at your other school if Admissions hasn't transferred your classes over yet.

    Any more people accepted from the waiting list since the end of July? Anyone have any clues when they've finalized the Fall class? The email said changes will continue through the end of August so I don't want to bother our advisor... I was pleasantly surprised to make the waiting list, and am fully prepared to improve a couple of areas to better qualify for '16... but the unknown is eating away at me :)

    Which nursing schools can accept me?

    Bakersfield College and Porterville College are community colleges in kern county that are lottery and very respectable. As long as you have a C or better in prereqs and pass the TEAS with a 65 (may need to verify) you can apply. It is a lottery system, and each semester you reapply your chances are supposed to increase. This is for an ADN which starts pay the same here in kern county. then you can apply for the CSU Bakersfield ADN-BSN one year program.Good luck!

    I'm not sure where you're coming from but Bakersfield is one of the cheaper places to live in California. edgewater is right next to the school, and there's a cluster of privately managed apartments close by in the Quailwood neighborhood. there's also The Springs closeby and places along gosford road. Good luck!

    the student dorms are nice, they just opened in January so they're not even a year old! There are a couple of facebook groups for professors and books.

    Moving to Palo Alto, CA

    ah ha. learned something new: evenings vs nights. definitely referring to nights! so much to learn...

    Moving to Palo Alto, CA

    With taxes, anything is better than my current situation, which is self-employment I am really looking forward to working evenings (I typically work at night/work best at night) and I plan to pick-up shifts and work holidays. My goal is the Bay Area, but maybe live in Morgan Hill and commute up. My best friend lives in Gilroy and commutes but deals with working a day-job. I hope it's better in the evening. I used to live in HMB as a child so I miss the area. We'll see!

    Moving to Palo Alto, CA

    Since you don't seem to balk at the prices -- may i ask if the estimators (like Indeed.com) are accurate for average RN pay in the area? I want to move up to the Bay area after I have my BSN and a couple of years under my belt, as the hospital I'm likely to get a job through where I live is headquartered up there. However, my husband doesn't want to move up there if most of my pay would go towards rent (with the intention to eventually buy). However, I'd want to transfer up there making around $85-90k.
