I am in in my 3rd semester with one more to go to gain my LPN. I am having a hard time finding the will power to keep going, and find myself feeling so overwhelmed at times i have a "cry session". I have made excellent grades so far in school. But this semester, our teachers have added a pass/fail NCLEX style test that we [...]
I am just starting school (in the fall) and concerned with the job market. Anyone know if AZ RN's (2yr) are finding jobs? I plan on achieving a BSN someday. I'm 46 and feeling like I have started this way too late. Thanks to everyone who responds.

I am having a hard time adjusting to the transition from school to work.
I have had an orientation that was promised to last 12 weeks but because we are so short staffed, it is being cut short. I am terrified to be by myself, the honeymoon is over and there are more threats of being written up for things that I was NEVER taught. I [...]
I am a new graduate Dec 2009, 51 yr old RN. I am working on a tele floor and to be perfectly honest feel like I don't know crap. My preceptor is awesome and a great teacher but with 6 and 7 patients I feel like I am doing but not understanding why I am doing. I am looking at lab results and don't understand [...]
I am in my last semester of nursing school and will be graduating in may 2010. I chose ICU for my speciality rotation and I will be precepting in Ortho/ Neuro for the rest of the semester. I may be mistaken when I say that most of the nurses in ICU are very stressed out and not as accepting and nice as other nurses on [...]
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 [...]
I hate conflict! Doesn't matter who it's with or what the reason is, I just hate it. It makes me uncomfortable and leaves me feeling agitated. I tend to be more of a "flight" than "fight" kind of gal.
The thing is, conflict is a part of life. So we all have to learn how to deal with it. It happens at home, at work, even [...]

I understand those of you who are worried about losing your license after a conviction-and wondering about how to appeal the board of nursing. I know what it is like to worry for months and months, because there are no clear cut answers out there.
I am an RN who has been licensed since 1990. In 2008 I got arrested for petite theft, a Class 2 [...]
