  2. detox nursing

    I was a medical assistant for 10+ years primarily in pediatrics. Got my LPN in 2017 and then worked in an urgent care for about a year and a half. Liked seeing lots of different things, didn't like the work/life balance (never got a break (literally ...
  3. Hearing loss, please help

    I have an extensive history with hearing loss that began in early childhood. Related to chronic infections, scar tissue, surgery, failed tubes, on and on. My right here had been ok. Left ear is "troubled". Most of my life it has just presented as a c...
  4. ATI PN review vs NCSBN PN review- help!

    that's really helpful! thank you!
  5. My school "offers" the ATI live review in 2 weeks. it's a $275 fee which is steep considering our NCLEX registration fee is due around the same time. I didn't even realize it was a choice not to take it until recently, but was determined to find a wa...
  6. MCPHS Worcester Absn Fall 2017

    Congratulations! I am in an LPN program in the outskirts of Worcester. Have heard very good things from people who went to MCPHS. I know it's expensive but it's supposed to be a great program. Worcester is very student heavy- between Clark University...
  7. So I'm 2 weeks out from the end of school. Last day is January 11th, and graduation is January 25th. (YES!!!!) How prepared should I feel for an emergency? I'm a good student and feel like I understand the concepts really well. I've also worked as a ...
  8. I can't tell you how much better you have all made me feel. thank you thank you thank you. I go back to my first real night of clinicals tonight and i'm so nervous about it. We had class last night and I got my first 78 on an exam in the program... ...
  9. thanks guys RainMom- I know, i was thinking that afterward. On one hand I am grateful for her having the "faith" in me not to be a second set of eyes for the insulin draw, but on the other hand with a med like that it does make sense. This facility ...
  10. I almost didn't post on here because I feel so incredibly ashamed, but I feel like it might be good to talk it out. I'm in a PN program and we're in our last term. My first term I did one med pass. My second term was supposed to be med pass heavy bu...
  11. I go back to school in 2 weeks (waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!) Last year I really struggled with lunches/dinners. I work full time from 7:30-3:00 and then I go to school at night from 3:50-10:30 or so (sometimes later, depending on clinicals) I have ...
  12. fat in nursing school

    Thanks so much for all the healthy eating advice! All great tips, I really appreciate it. I guess what I'm really looking for though is how to emotionally get through feeling this way. All the best eating and activity in the world won't make a diffe...
  13. fat in nursing school

    so i've been fat for pretty much my whole life. I've also had jobs my whole life that require running around and keeping up. I worked with kids for many years and then I went to school to be a Medical Assistant about 10 years ago and have worked in a...
  14. Messed up bad...

    I'm so sorry this happened. you made a mistake and you're owning it. i also see how things like this could happen... especially as someone else said when youre in that focused state. Nursing school is no joke and when we make mistakes they are big de...
  15. I'm in my second term of clinicals as an LPN student. We are based at subacute right now. Last night we had the opportunity to watch a midline get placed by an IV access nurse. I will start by saying that almost nothing makes me squeamish. I've been...
