    Samford University CRNA 2020 Applicants

    Hi everyone! I reached out to Allyson Maddox and she informed me we should hear back regarding interviews around the second and third week of June!

    Congrats all who have received the call and acceptance!! Can you tell me what area code they called you from? Was it 225? I was at work yesterday and received several missed calls but didn't think anything of it

    LSU CRNA 2018

    Super laid back interview today! We met with 3 of the 6 faculty for 15 minutes, then had the option to take a tour of the school with current students. They're interviewing 90-100 applicants and taking 45 of them. We should be contacted by phone in early October. Good luck everyone!

    @morgangreen You purchase scrubs in the basement of Baptist Downtown! There's a small closet where you can try on the different options and someone to help you fill out the order form. Definitely wearing scrubs to orientation!

    Failed nclex, pls help me if you passed Nclex in 2015

    My nursing school paid for Kaplan and I found their approach to answering NCLEX questions less than helpful. I opted for Hurst live review which is a 3 day review course lasting from 08:00-16:00. It's a very interactive review and I walked away feeling more confident about what I could be tested over. Since Hurst doesn't give you a ton of review questions, I downloaded the NCLEX Mastery RN app and would answer questions after reviewing a specific subject (OB, Peds, Neuro, etc) and found this tremendously helpful! Good luck!

    Passed NCLEX-RN In 75 Questions

    I paid for an in-class Hurst review and supplemented that information with downloading the $29.99 NCLEX RN mastery app to answer questions on the content area I had studied and I passed on my first attempt in 75 questions! Would highly recommend these two review courses to anyone!

    Failed, nclex rn 5 times! Help?!?!

    I completed a HURST review course and downloaded the $29.99 NCLEX RN application on my iPhone! Could not recommend these study methods more! Good luck!!

    The most comfortable Nursing Shoes

    Dansko clogs, Asics Gel Nimbus (although mine showed wear and tear after a year), or Converses! Don't forget compression socks!

    What's the BEST nursing shoes?

    I would definitely suggest Dankso clogs, Converses, or Asics Gel Nimbus! Don't forget compression socks because they make a world of difference!

    Hate my job

    Exactly! We get beat down enough in nursing school to last a lifetime. If the staff you're working with doesn't value you, you can take your skills elsewhere.

    Are You Cut Out to be an Emergency Department (ED) Nurse?

    Every ED nurse I've ever known embodies these qualities to the fullest! Thanks for posting!
