    Passing Out at Clinical

    Hi Everyone! I am currently in a TBSN program, and I have a mandatory OR observation coming up. I am super nervous because I have seen one surgery (when I shadowed in HS) and passed out. I also fainted at clinical while watching an invasive procedure in the OR. I don't think I am bothered by surgery itself, but for whatever reason, I don't seem to tolerate watching it very well. OR nursing is definitely not in my future. Has anyone experienced vasovagal syncope as a student and found a way to manage it in the clinical/OR setting? Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated!! I alway make sure to eat and keep my legs bent.

    Help Choosing a Nursing School

    Hi everyone! I am a senior in high school and applied to a pretty broad range of schools for 4 year direct-admit nursing. So far, I have been accepted into all the schools I have applied to (listed below), but I have to wait to hear from SDSU, UCLA, and UC Irvine. With the following as options, I am unsure as to which school would be best for me, and it would be very helpful to hear from someone who attended. Arizona State University Texas Christian University University of San Francisco Case Western Reserve University Saint Louis University Seattle University University of Portland Does anyone have experience with any of these colleges and/or their nursing programs? I am struggling to figure out which school would suit me best as well as which has the best nursing program. Thank you in advance!
