    Hi. I'm from the area as well. I currently go to SIUE's nursing program (in last semester), but I've had some friends that went to LCCC's program, and they spoke highly of it. I was a SNT at Christian hospital over the summer, and they LOVE LCCC grads. I believe you're in a great program! But with any rule of thumb, stay consistent with studying NCLEX questions. I heard LCCC really challenges their students, but that's how they turn out to be great nurses!

    How do you feel when?..

    I was a little out of place when I first started clinicals. But then you have to think that you're there for the same reason as everybody else, and that's to help people. I learned to be assertive and seek opportunities when I can. My most difficult clinical was OB. About half my patients didn't want me in the room, and that's okay. It's whatever is most comfortable for the patient. During Peds rotation, everybody loved the male nurses (and student nurses) because they could relate to them with video games and cartoons and what not. I've worked as a SNT during the summer and have gotten a lot of positive remarks about being in the nursing profession. A lot of people definitely look up to male nurses. Just stand tall, be assertive, confident, and be a positive role model!
