    Scrub Jacket Recommendations

    Hello, I am plus-size and looking for a comfortable scrub jacket that's not too hot to wear inside. I am wearing Cherokee Infinityscrubs and Dickies Xtreme Stretch scrubs and like them both. I just started my first job and would like your opinion. Thanks!

    Plus Size Scrubs

    Hello Can you recommend a plus-size scrub jacket? I'm looking at Cherokee and Dickies and can't decide. Thanks!!!
  3. Hello Everyone - I am graduating (God willing) in December and am filling out my application to take an exam on BON's website. In the Criminal History portion, at the bottom it says, "(You may only exclude Class C misdemeanor traffic violations or offenses previously disclosed to the Texas Board of Nursing on an initial or renewal application). Well, I've never completed an application before and I got a speeding ticket in March '16. Does this mean I have to answer yes to "been convicted of a misdemeanor?" and be ineligible to fill out my application online? I am going to call BON tomorrow, but wanted to see if any of you had the answer to this. This is confusing and I don't want to be deceptive on my application. Thanks!!

    Do your teachers round up grades?

    Our nursing school doesn't round up, even if you have 89.9999999.

    A couple of HESI Questions

    Hi - first of all I want to say to you, GO FOR IT!! It sounds like you're off to a great start. I am 52 and started nursing school at 50. With God's grace, I will graduate in December 16 with my ADN-RN degree! There is no dosage calculations on the entrance HESI when applying for nursing school. It's basic math: decimals, fractions, etc. Once you start school and do your exit HESI tests after certain courses, then the dosage calculation will be there. There are some good books for studying HESI and there are some good websites where you can take some free practice exams. Good luck to you!!

    Writing a Care Plan

    Just a note: I have always had to include a time frame for my goals.... by discharge, by end of shift, or by a specific date/time. They are just hard, lol. Still trying to get used to them myself. Good luck!

    San Jacinto College Central ADN-Spring 2015

    Hi Lynn - I'm not sure what's in the bundle. I hope we can get our books this week. I went to San Jac's SOS and clicked on buy textbooks and it took me to the bookstore and showed me a list of the books. I'm assuming that's what is in the bundle, plus the software for Prep U and something else we'll be using online.

    Excited about starting nursing school this spring

    I am freaking out too! I try not to think about it and focus on my new beginning. I'm nervous about doing well, and being able to keep up academically. Most of all, I am thankful for the opportunity and plan on doing my best. I think fear and doubt will definitely get in the way, so we need to throw them out! We need to give ourselves credit for getting into the program. It's a big accomplishment! We can do it!
