    Is 63 to old to start nursing school?

    I have to admit this made me laugh. I had no idea that ANY kind of nursing (outside of movies and TV) is glamorous.

    Cscc nursing program and hesi

    By CSCC, do you mean Columbus State Community College? If you do, please be sure to check with Health & Human Services advising because I believe if you don't pass it the 2nd time with at least a 75, you cannot apply to the nursing program at all, even after a year. I double checked the nursing page on the school website, and they are still saying that is true. See here: http://www.cscc.edu/academics/departments/nursing/PDF/Admission%20Assessment%20Info.pdf Most exam books are going to give you an idea of the kinds of topics you'll find, but none are going to tell you everything that will be on the test. Which sections gave you the most trouble? I'd look at those and watch some youtube videos on those topics and do some online practice questions with those in mind. Good luck.

    Shoes (especially for those of us overweight)

    Thank you. I appreciate it.
  5. So I saw this previous post about shoes to wear for overweight nurses & students. I'm going to look into some of the suggestions, but after so long some of the links are dead and there could be new styles from new people. I hope y'all don't mind a new thread. I've lost quite a bit of weight, but still have quite a bit to go (WLS coming up over the summer). In the meantime, I'm hauling a lot of pounds during nursing school. I have a pair of Grasshoppers for this semester (1st semester nursing school, so only 4 hour clinicals), but I want to get some suggestions for when my clinical time doubles next semester. So, any ladies (overweight or not) want to throw out some new suggestions for things that have or haven't worked for you? Thanks a bunch.

    Former LVN With Current Felony Charge

    I'm hoping for the best possible outcome for you. Like another mentioned, I do think seeing an attorney would be a wise choice.

    No more rudeness!

    Honestly, I've read a lot of threads here and many of them have to do with things that are overheard by nurses. Things they've heard doctors say, families of patients say, etc and I can't recall anyone being castigated about eavesdropping before quite like this. Honestly, I can practically see some people clutching their pearls and shrieking "Well, I nevah!"

    Should I be a nurse? Fears, bodily fluids etc

    I think this sounds like a great idea. Also, I'm not a nurse yet but a few of my best friends are nurses. One of them went straight from nursing school to working at an insurance company doing case management. She makes as much money as the other nurses I know who work bedside. One of other nurses I know quit bedside nursing to be on an Ask-a-Nurse line and makes as much as she did bedside minus the shift differential. Now, of course, there's no guaranteeing these "non-bodily-fluid" jobs, but some people don't work directly with patients as nurses. Good luck no matter what you choose.
