Hello,
I was an excellent student whose passion is nursing but after I took my boards a few days later I had an emergency c-section with a 2 month premie. I proceeded to quickly re-take them afraid of forgetting, but I was going through a lot health wise and did not succeed. That threw me over and I let it go. I have [...]

I failed out of nsg school in 5th level after failing the limit of classes, I repeated 4th level and then failed community health in 5th level and got dismissed from the nsg school program. I'm just wondering if any one had any ideas about what I could do? I'm thinking about writing a formal letter to the Dean and asking if I could [...]

Hi fellows,
I would love to hear from new grads and experienced RNs(Preceptors), why the precetors give hard time to the new graduates and the new grads that had experienced a negative experience with preceptors.
I graduated 2 years ago, and I was fortunate enough to get a job soon. The problem started once one of my former class mate found out I was working in the [...]

I just failed nursing school, as several of you have also posted at the age of 57. I really wanted to become a nurse for many reasons that I will not go into at present. I had a rocky start in a master's level nursing program and then had an injury which impacted my clinicals (with only three semesters left). I had [...]

2)I can't work per diem;

3) because I'm on monitoring!

I almost feel like giving up. There is so many stipulations to the boards monitoring I can't get [...]

I'm a new grad (May 09).

Our initial orientation was supposed to be 8 weeks, but I was thrown out on my own a little sooner than I would have liked. I started at my hospital June 1st doing orientation and by the fifteenth they had me on my unit with a peceptor. I did that for two days and by my third day I [...]

I started off as a new grad in a very very busy surgical floor with a huge learning curve ahead of me...I made some mistakes (or as I am approaching them now learning experiences) and unfortunately had conditions placed on my license as a result. I have worked closely with the registration body and am good to go in thier eyes-with the conditions mind you- [...]

Reality Unscripted

I spent last week as a camp nurse in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  For the most part, I spent my days giving kids their meds, removing splinters, putting band-aids on scrapes, and generally being a mom.  It didn't take as much skill as a ready smile and encouraging word.

Then Wednesday night hit.  It was the beginning of a 24-hour period that had my adrenaline [...]

Seasoned with Sage

So how many times will you take the NCLEX?  Most all of you will surely answer at least once.  But for some of us-those select few who no matter how hard we try just can't excel at a nursing exam-it might be a few more.

I'm fessing up: I did not pass the NCLEX the first time.  I had heard from teachers and nurses alike that [...]
