    Well that’s good for you. Idk why the teachers up in Lawrence try to make stuff so hard. Even their advance physiology was was harder than the same class in Columbus. I wonder when I should start back up at school for my BSN or if I should go straight for my masters.

    No worries. If you want to send me a message I’ll get you some info. I recommend doing supplemental hours instead of part time or full time. It’s a bit more manageable with the school schedule. I’ll find out which units are hiring at the moment and let you know. I’ll DM you my info so you can get in touch with me since I don’t get on here a ton.

    If you have any questions or concerns, just add me on Facebook and I’ll probably get the messages faster than here. It will all go well. You have the right outlook and it’s half the battle

    It does tend to feel that way. Just remember that school is only preparing you for the NCLEX. When you start work, don’t be disheartened when/if it feels as though you know nothing. It felt like starting all over again. I must say, through all the stress and nerves, I know it will work out well in the end. Helping people get better is worth every care plan, exam, pop quiz and Simulation day.

    It is hard. I’m doing decently at work, but there are a lot of things that school won’t prepare you for. Hang in there and get into the program. I would say that work is scary right now and I am worried a lot. I know I will gain confidence and get better, but in the mean time I am just praying to do ok.

    Gpa is a factor after you get in. It could be a factor if there were multiple students with the same application score on the cut off line. Same score higher gpa would get in the last spot.

    Yes Ma'am, I mean Yes sir

    I get the,” lets get to it ladies!” At team meetings. My patients parents will mistake me for a Dr. often. When I get young female patients and I introduced myself, most exclaim, “ What? Boy are allowed to be nurses too!?” It is all understandable and I’ve never been one to carry a chip on my shoulder. It is always an easy joke for charge nurses to make when I float somewhere. They think they are comedic geniuses haha. I think it’s funny that they find their own humor so funny since they are typically such cheesy jokes. I did find out that women talk about things to each other that would make some sailors blush. They will carry on and forget I’m at the nurses station. I’ll give them a cough or say something like,” Holy smokes ladies. Let’s dial it back to about a 6.”

    Already feel like giving up

    I have been offered every position I have ever interviewed for regardless of the field. I answer what they ask, but I add personal spin to it in order to get the manager to bite and show their personal bias on a topic. Then I will continue to appeal to their personal feelings on things in order to foster rapport with them. Then I’m not just another applicant in a chair to them. I’m a sympathetic, caring, multifaceted and like minded person to them. If they see you as more of a peer, or kindred spirit to themselves, they are more likely to consider you over people who are comparable or more qualified. This does take good skills in reading people and assessing their reaction and level of interest. You can also go with the old method of being really positive and peppy. Some managers will not enjoy it though. Don’t be afraid to ask the other people who have interviewed you for feedback on your interviewing style. Use hand gestures, confident posture and eye contact. Smile when appropriate and be real. Don’t do the fake interview voice and try to seem like the perfect professional. They will notice right away. They see it all the time and they will likely write you off. I know I was all over the place with my response, but I hope this helped. Thank you for your time.

    $750 CA RN License??? No way!

    You quoted it and must not have read it. There isn’t one name calling incident in the text you are referencing.

    Wow, that is so expensive. It is $50 for two years here.

    Blast from the past...

    I have a great collection of Power Rangers memorabilia. I have re watched many of the season of the show. They are all very corny and I think that it’s part of their charm. In my opinion, they are so outlandishly corny that it’s what actually makes it funny and whimsical. I think it’s great to revisit things from our childhood. MMPR is always going to hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for sharing
