    Your most bonehead moment in nursing. Or 2. Or 3.

    This was what I did yesterday. Coworker needed a catheter placed in a women, so I told her I would be glad to do it for her. Everything went without a hitch until I went to pull on the cath to make sure the bulb inflated. The cath came straight out, ...

    How are you/did you study for NCLEX

    Ya'll. I passed! I cannot believe it. I had the worst feeling and literally woke up at 2 am shaking I was so nervous. Then I couldn't go back to sleep. God is good. Thank you for all the good vibes sent my way. I appreciate it!

    Nclex was awful

    I know it is adaptive and all that, but with the questions I got, I don't see how it determines if you will be a competent nurse. I mean I was asked stuff that I probably will never even think about again because it doesn't have anything to do with p...

    Nclex was awful

    I felt the questions were a lot different than I was used to. I didn't use Uworld, though. The majority of them were simple one maybe two sentence questions. Then the answers were elaborate and hard to narrow down to two by the way they were worded. ...

    Nclex was awful

    I took my Nclex today and I have to agree with everything you all have said. It was the hardest and weirdest exam I have ever taken. I got the first question right I know for a fact, but then it was downhill after that. It seems like I would spend se...

    How are you/did you study for NCLEX

    I just got done. I got 75 questions with 17 of those SATA; 2 drag and drop. It took me over 2 hours to do that amount. I felt I didn’t know anything they were asking. I don’t have a very good feeling and I just got done crying a little over it. But i...

    How are you/did you study for NCLEX

    I take it at 8 this morning. I slept like crap, which I usually do before a big test. Hoping and praying for a clear mind and less nerves as I am a little anxious right now. LOL.

    How are you/did you study for NCLEX

    Our school made us take two exit HESI's in our last semester. Both 165 questions. They were a total of 50% of our grade, so I know the pressure they induce. I used the green HESI book and did practice questions. Our school has made us do prepu and pa...
  9. I graduated on May 10, got my ATT last week and scheduled my exam for June 5. I was out of the country until this Monday and I started studying on Wednesday. I have been doing practice questions about 100-200 a day. I have a Saunders book, but I don'...

    Army/Military nursing

    I am in my fourth out of five semesters of an ASN program. My ultimate goal one day is to do travel nursing, but I have an instructor that used to be an Army nurse before he started teaching. It kinda intrigued me a little bit hearing him talk about ...
  11. First, I hope I posted in the right area. If not, please move or delete. I'm hoping someone can give me some advice. We learned about malpractice in school this past semester, but I never thought I might get to see it firsthand. I had a root canal ...

    Fundamentals HESI final

    Wow I don't like the HESI. LOL. It was terrible I thought. I'd rather have one of our instructor's test as a final. Maybe if we had access to their adaptive quizzing, the questions wouldn't have surprised me as much, but they were very wordy. I made...

    Fundamentals HESI final

    That's great. That type of stuff wasn't my favorite this semester. Did you have to bring headphones? I just learned we do and that we may have to listen to heart and breath sounds.

    Fundamentals HESI final

    Was there head to toe assessment stuff on there or any of the more administrative side of nursing stuff on there?

    Fundamentals HESI final

    Is that on the evolve website somewhere or do you have to buy the hesi book and enter the code?
