  1. Nothing Left To Give At Home

    Could part of the problem and frustration be that he keeps asking, you answer and he is still not satisfied and assured and has to get confirmation from his mom? For some reason you get less respect from family members and that's annoying. As others ...
  2. Quit First NP Job Without Notice

    Here's my take on it, for what it's worth. They cannot legally withhold your paycheck for any reason. They must pay you and if they think you own them money they would have to collect by some other means. Contact the Attorney General in that state a...
  3. Colostomies: Types & Care

    Thanks for your article. It was very informative.
  4. I always tell myself that management's crisis does not translate into it being my crisis. For a long time now in nursing this has been the management style to work with a nursing shortage and they expect nurses to pitch in over and above their requir...
  5. My living situation while in Nursing school

    I'd call yourself lucky that your parents are supporting you through school. Study hard, get through and rewards them in some way when you have the financial means to do so.
  6. Need advice! 😩😩

    Hmmm....first thing that jumps out at me is have you ever been arrested for drug charges? Before you decide about where you want to go to school, need to figure this out first. When I was in school, last semester of school before sitting for the RN N...
  7. You need to focus on you, not your wife. I also studied 6 hours a day and waited a month to take it. I look at it as an Olympic event, mental though instead of physical. Train for peak performance the day of the test. Right now you're experiencing so...
  8. NCLEX Relief | How do you do it?

    When I took my NCLEX several years ago I studies maybe between 4-6 hours a day. Until I took it I considered it my job. I would sit down to study and set the timer for maybe one hour or 2 hours and when the timer went off I got up and did something e...
  9. Failed out of RN program completely, what now?

    We had 3 LPNs join our class for the RN section. I think 2 failed. The main cause I believe based on being with them and talking with them is twofold. One, they were working full-time as LPNs that required a lot of their time and two, they had been o...
  10. Please Help Me! I’m Over It!!

    You need to look for a new case now. There is good and bad families out there. This is not a good one. Cleaning up after a dog and babysitting another child is taking advantage of you. Sensing from your writing it seems like you are hesitant to stick...
  11. We live in a polite medical environment where costs aren't revealed until much later. Doctors order many tests to prevent being sued and patient don't ask about costs. Even if patients did ask the cost the patients would probably be told they don't k...
  12. I had a somewhat similar experience. Had a routine colonoscopy. Went to the hospital and doctor they told me to go to that was in network. Later I got a bill for the anesthesiologist because she was outside the network. I called the insurance up and ...
  13. Lots of variables here. Depends on what kind of student you are, for one. I remember A&P being difficult as I didn't have a real strong science background. I remember the first time they talked about cellular respiration and being totally amazed,...
  14. I was a big study bug. I got to the point where I would set the alarm for let's say 3 hours of study time. When the alarm went off I closed the books. Knowing that I set time to study and there was an end time to it helped the study anxiety. I also s...
  15. Reminds me of the old Halloween Charlie Brown cartoon. All the kids got candy. They asked Charlie Brown what he got and he said a rock, at every house they stopped at. Did Charlie Brown grow up to be a nurse? ?
