  1. A little advice please

    My job recently switched from scheduling meds at specific times to being passed during a general am/pm/hs time frame (with exception of before meals or meds that really need to be at a certain time like sinemet or every__hours. It's been really helpf...
  2. Choosing a unit

    Hello all. Back again, looking for some advice. Today I found out that I am blessed with the tough decision of choosing between TWO (can you believe it! Two!) job offers. Currently my ultimate goal is to work in an ER after gaining experience and lea...
  3. First combative pt

    Hi all. Im feeling a little burnt out. I work in a small tcu and have been dealing with my first combative patient. They are only only in my care for about half of my shifts, but I still go home wondering what else I could have done going home to pr...
  4. Staffing and Change of Shift

    Hello all! I currently work in a 24 bed TCU and we've been having some staffing issues. Let me first start by saying that we have pretty awesome ratios compared to most of you out there in rehab/TCU Nursing. We have 8:1 for nurses and 12:1 for our nu...

  6. If I took more than a year off of school I would 100% take an in person refresher course. Who knows how much has slipped through and you said you needed a content review. With refresher courses you can reinforce your knowledge, shake off some of the ...
  7. Need an opinion on preparing for the NCLEX

    I would find an in-person review course for sure. After 5-6 years being out of school you know you're rusty. Also there was clearly some knowledge and/or critical thinking skills that needed improvement the first few times around. A review course wo...

  10. Inver Hills MANE Fall 2017

    They try to limit the amount of hours are spent in class during the Metro portion because they know students want to work, so it's kind of a hybrid thing going on. So, at the campus I'm at we only meet thursdays, and only a handful of times this seme...
  11. Pharm distress!

    My school used ATI and also Pharmacology: A Patient Centered Nursing-Process Approach (Kee) And surprisingly enough I liked it a lot. I wouldn't suggest dropping a lot of money on it, but if you can find it for cheap it might be worth a look, becau...
  12. Took the nclex this morning shut off at 125 questions

    I also found out I passed this morning! What a relief :)
  13. Do you need a cheat sheet? If your not wanting to make one as a learning tool then I guess i would say I never needed to look them up at clinicals. When I would check lab results in the chart it would highlight any out of range and if I just wanted ...
  14. Here are my Mastery and ATI scores

    Alright folks, since I was constantly on this site comparing my scores to those who had passed, I figured it was only fair to leave mine here as well. I passed the NCLEX-RN yesterday in 75 questions. All I did was most of virtual ATI (did not compl...
  15. When should I begin studying for the NCLEX-RN?

    Does your school do any sort of comprehensive predictor? Finding out your strengths and weaknesses is the best place to start to figure out how, what, and for how long you should be studying. everyone on here studies and learns differently so you fi...
