    Schedule as hospice

    I really have an interest in becoming a hospice nurse but I do like not having the typical 8-5 job. Do they have alternative schedules such as evenings? Or I could do 7-7 with a longer lunch hour? Just curious what the options are for most hospice nurses that are home hospice. Thanks!

    Pass NCLEX 1st time

    I just wanted to share my NCLEX experience. So I passed my first try with 75 questions. I had 29 SATA, and probably 5-8 other speciality questions. I graduated in August 2017 and get I needed a break, well I met putting the test date off. I will tell you HANDS DOWN UWORLD is what prepared me! I scored anywhere from a 40%- 60%, but more and average of about 50 on UWORLD. It has the best rationales and harder questions and I'm so thankful I asked a friend about it. I had started Kaplan and thought the decision tree would help. It that technique wasn't working for air if the UWORLD questions. I would say take about a month to artist UWORLD and then get it out of the way. I'm so relieved but wish I would have taken it earlier!! good luck to all of you out there! I can't believe I can put an RN behind my name now 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Jana Lively, RN BSN:)

    Thank you so much!! That's kind of what my "gut" feeling was, but I value experienced nurses opinions very much!!

    Student-specialty

    Hi all, So I'm finishing up my 3rd semester in nursing school, which included Maternal/newborn and Med/surg 2. I used to think I'd like postpartum because I thought I would like to help mom's breastfeed. Well, now I think it's rather boring and loved L&D. I loved the ED, but it think partly was because I had great teachers and had a lot more autonomy. This is my second career and I don't know if I'd be happier in a more nurturing role such as L&D or the ED? I'm worried that ED might be stressful but my husband said I always came home "excited and satisfied" after the ER rotations. Anither ER issue is that the postpartum/L&D had a lot of pts that had an "entitlement" attitude which seemed different from the ED? Any long-term advice? I loved the L&D rotation and think that's where I should be?

    TAMUCC eLine spring 2016

    I only work one day a week, but there are several students that do work full-time, but most of those students are military and have medical experience. The clinical hours differ for each class. Both fundamentals and med/surg I have 135 hours per semester. Keep in mind you won't start clinicals right away and the clinical placement isn't guaranteed so you may have to drive to Corpus. I'm in the BSN program (I already have a bachelors in accounting) but it's a 5 semester program consecutively do summers are included. Intense--very, hard--like nothing I've ever done. I thought accounting was hard at Tecas A&M in CS, but nursing is a whole new world, especially learning the critical thinking. So it can be done obviously but it is by no means easy. I live in CS, so I take my end of semester exams at Blinn. You basically need an institution that proctors exams. I'm in my 2nd semester and I'm really looking forward to it. The clinicals were amazing. I learned so much. Good luck to you!

    I had an interview via Webex, which I think they require for Eline students. I'm not sure how many applied, but there are 11 including Eline military in our spring 2016 cohort. Good luck, waiting is hard:)
  8. We have 3 hospitals in the Bryan/College Station area, and I was curious if any of you have an opinion to which one is the best for clinicals? I'm so excited to get started! Thanks!

    I can't believe I actually *like* night shift!

    Lol that's me the laid back night owl!i think I know what shift I want some day😉

    I can't believe I actually *like* night shift!

    That's amazing!! I'm hoping to get into nursing school for Spring. I'm a total night owl, but I wonder, on your days off do you still keep your schedule? Do you find it best to go to sleep as soon as you get off or wait until later and wake up shortly before work? I think I might really like night shift too. I function best between 8pm and 2 am😳
