    NCLEX Study Tips

    i'm taking the NCLEX for the first time in a few weeks! Thanks for the tips! I'm using UWorld now and I love it! The rationales are the best!
  2. Congrats on getting into a program! I'm entering my last semester of nursing school (BSN) and just want you to be encouraged. You can do this! Don't get overwhelmed and always find time to study. Stay positive! My first semester schedule was: Mondays: 8-10 Health Assessement Lecture and 10-12 Health Assessment Lab Tuesdays: Clinical 6:30am - 3pm Wednesday: Nursing Skills Lab from 1pm - 4pm Thursday: 9-12pm Nursing Fundamentals and 1-3pm Population Focused Healthcare Friday: 9-12pm Pathophysiology/Pharmacology I
  3. Exactly! They were required pre-reqs for every BSN program in my area.

    I start in two weeks and we have yet to get a schedule. Did you attend class five days a week? How was first semester?

    Pre-req question!

    I went transient at another school and manage to take Physiology and Micro together. Get with your advisor to see what area universities and community colleges credit are transferrable and equivalent.
  6. A male nurse may have an advantage when it comes to the more labor intensive parts of nursing, but that's about it. Males and females are equal aside for men being stronger than some women. That would've been my response.

    Please help my grades are killing me!!

    I was recently accepted into a BSN at a pretty reputable school. Historically, the average GPA for those accepted into my program range from 3.80 to 4.0. My cum. GPA is 3.47 and my science GPA is a 3.48, but the thing about my program is that GPA wasn't all that influenced their decision. We also had to submit an essay and resume. OP, if you really want to get in I suggest you retake the classes and bring your GPA higher. I would also contact the director of the program as well. Good luck!
  8. I work as an OR tech now and want no parts of the OR as a RN. The nurses in my OR mostly chart/circulate or will occasionally scrub. I'd rather do SICU, CICU, or TBICU initially then maybe get into nurse anesthesia or go into the OR as a First Assist.

    I have a MDF Dual Headed Sprague Rappaport Stethoscope. All other clinical supplies will be supplied by the program.

    I received my acceptance letter in the mail yesterday! I'm turning down admission because I got into the BSN program at UAB! Good luck to the rest of you!
