  1. The worst job you had before becoming a Nurse?

    Something like that.
  2. The worst job you had before becoming a Nurse?

  3. sitting with drug seekers.

    I've got less than 6 months of experience working as an RN. I am not speculating that the nurses are lazy, with the information given by the poster, it is easy to assess the situation and come to the (correct) conclusion that the nurses she/he works ...
  4. Why???? Are?? They?? Failing???

    My highest level of education, before college, (and besides a GED I earned on a whim at age 14), was the third grade. I NEVER once struggled with any type of class or came anywhere close to a C throughout my entire college career. I am one of the lea...
  5. Why???? Are?? They?? Failing???

    Out of the 36 students that began the nursing program, at the school I attended, when I did, only 6 of us graduated (on time). Our school had an NCLEX pass rate above the national average but this is only because they did not allow anyone to make it ...
  6. sitting with drug seekers.

    This is how I feel all nurses should aim to handle this kind of situation, but I am a new nurse, so what do I know?
  7. sitting with drug seekers.

    I am a practicing licensed RN now. I guess I did not fix the profile properly. I will work on that now, thank you for pointing out issue. I am also a female and had trouble turning my little picture into a female.
  8. sitting with drug seekers.

    I am a nurse (RN) and somehow manage to get all my work done during my 12 hour shifts, including the MOST important part of my job, which happens to be treating my patients pain and making sure they are as comfortable as possible and are receiving th...
  9. sitting with drug seekers.

    A nurse that believes this!
  10. sitting with drug seekers.

    I do not understand how it is so difficult for some nurses to give the q4 dilaudid right on the dot, it is their freaking job! I do understand that every now and again emergencies happen and a nurse may not be able to get to it right away but if this...
  11. Thinking of dropping Nursing school and doing Pre-Med

    You're right, the MCAT will still need to be taken, and I was wrong about needing a four year degree to be accepted. They prefer 4 year degrees but will take students with 3 years of college coursework. College of Medicine | Admission Procedures
  12. Ulcerated hemangioma

    Propranolol for infantile hemangioma. DermNet NZ This website explains why propranolol is used and how it works, it is very interesting and it may be helpful.
  13. What are client indications and considerations?

    The indications are what the medications are used to treat. An example of the indications would be Celexa: Depression, anxiety, blah, blah, blah. The considerations are things to be considered when a patient is on the medications, like teach patient ...
  14. Thinking of dropping Nursing school and doing Pre-Med

    I think the Medical University of South Carolina will accept a BSN with no other pre-reqs, meaning you can finish your BSN and apply for acceptance to that med school. You should check it out.
  15. Scrub Hats

    Those are great!
  16. Stethoscope Watch

    I use a prestige medical stethoscope watch on my Littmann Cardiology III, it was a little difficult to snap onto the tubing but it fits fine.
  17. ATI PN Comprehensive exam

    I just took the ATI RN comprehensive exam. The RN comprehensive was all nursing related questions, "NCLEX style", not general knowledge, I am sure that the PN would be similar.
  18. ATI Comprehensive RN 2015

    My class just took that exam and even the students who have never scored above a level 1, on a proctored ATI exam, were able to score at least a 90% predictability of passing the NCLEX. So, whatever you do to study, or not, should suffice.
  19. Accreditation

    Oh, if that is the case then no, the nursing program was not accredited. Sorry, I saw "Probationary Accreditation", and quit reading. Next time I will be sure to finish reading posts before I respond.
  20. Accreditation

    Yes, if you graduated during the probationary period, you graduated from an accredited program.
  21. Please tell us, I would really like to hear about it.
  22. Community Health ATI EXAM HELP!!

    I was told the 99th percentile program ranking was not just for my school but all ADN programs. Which means that the program ranking for your score includes all BSN programs that use ATI. The other ranking is for all program types combined ADN/BSN. W...
  23. Night nurse paralysis anyone?

    I get the sleep paralysis most nights sometimes up to 7 or 8 times in one night. I feel like I never make it past REM so I am always tired. It usually occurs as I am just drifting off. It starts out with a buzzing sound that becomes loud and high pit...
  24. Wage for STNA or CNA

    State Trained/State Tested
  25. Take proof of your prescription with you when you are drug tested and the place that does the drug screens will pass your test results along to the school as clean. You do not have to disclose your medications to the school.
