    some people don't learn well in study groups. I for one, tend to avoid them. My studying is more efficient if I do it myself

    Took me two tries. First time was a heart breaker. Got the mail, opened it anticipating good news and boom...fell into depression for a couple of days lol. Second time I applied I didnt expect too much. I mean I studied my ass off for the entrance exam but at that point it was either I was in or that was it for me and I would have ended up doing something else for the rest of my life. Thankfully I got accepted, and let me tell you bruh, it felt like I won the lottery. Good luck to you.

    Thats how I am too but I hooked up with some people just to see if the study group would benefit me. And it did in some ways:

    -Some material stuck with me due to the different environment of studying that I am used to. I was able to recall information that I normally wouldnt have but because DoucheBag A made a joke about something, that material stuck to me.
    -Depending on your Practicals, those buddies of yours can help you out lol. We were literally helping each other during the practicals.
    -Made some good friends..some of them I still talk to today, go out clubbin, go out for drinks and BBQ, beach..ect

    But like I said I was more effecient studying by myself too..the study group was just a plus. I'd go home and reread all of my notes and study and pretend the study group never happened.

    I never joined any study groups, mainly because I commuted to school and everyone was on campus. Scored the highest GPA + the only summa cum laude. Different strokes for different folks, just felt more efficient studying by myself I guess.

    I had physiology and anatomy today. My prof is an old 4 foot Asian lady with a heavy accent, who drags on the last word of every sentence in a higher tone.

    real shame because i really do enjoy the material and a good teacher makes all the difference

    Teachers make a huge difference when it comes to specialized and important classes. Anatomy and physiology is something you don't necessarily need a good teacher for, but a good teacher will save you hours of time on knowing physiology. I found that literally drawing out the steps in pictures helped me understand physiology.

    There is a large gap or disconnect between what is taught in school and what occurs in the real world of nursing. It's quite a shame

    Pretty sure I just 100%'d my first AP1 lecture exam.. either that or just 1 wrong. Tuesday I have a micro quiz, chem quiz and my first AP lab practical, gotta do work this weekend lol.

    ^^ Teachers do make a big difference period. Some teachers will just assign an assload of busy work as homework and expect you to know it all. Others will provide great lectures, be very accessible for any help you may need and they will actually make learning the material fun. I love biology, it's fascinating to me. My microbiology teacher makes it even better. I recall almost everything that she says in class because she not only relates things really well, but she is very enthusiastic. She doesn't just give power point presentations, but she walks around the room and brings the lecture down to a more conversational experience. Micro is def my favorite class this semester

    First, do well in school and your clinicals. To be honest, I'm a really good student and stuck out especially in clinicals, all the nurses loved me . For my nursing program, getting a preceptorship in a critical care unit is competitive as fuk. We had to have recommendations from multiple teachers to get a spot in the ICU/PICU/NICU or any other specialty units.

    After I got my ICU preceptorship, I made everyday an interview. I got to know my preceptor (who was the manager's right-hand woman), the manager after awhile, supervisors. I got to know all the nurses. By the end of my preceptorship, two or three nurses told the manager they wanted me on the team. On my last day, the manager told me I was probably one of the top students and she'd love to have me on her team. It worked out great and I applied and got the spot. Just work hard and network. Treat clinicals like another opportunity to network, because that's how you get jobs with this impacted economy.

    Being a male, having the highest GPA + summa cum laude, past hospital work, + ACLS/PALS/ECG certs helped, but even without all of that, I could have landed the job based on networking. Talk to everyone you can during clinicals, impress the nurses, ask if there are openings, etc, and put yourself out there brah.

    would those that are RN consider stress levels high or low?

    Oh by the way...Size f*cking matters, in everything. Don't believe the hype. Size f*cking matters. Size DOESN'T matter to people who don't have any size, that's why they're like "oh size doesn't matter". SIZE, GIRTH, THICKNESS, EVERYTHING. Its a game of inches in life..add up all those inches, Victory muthaf*cker!-Greg Plitt

    All depends on where you work, resources available, relationship with other nurses/doctors and management.

    If you have the tools needed to provide quality care along with helpful staff, you can find the job easy to manage.

    If you don't have say respiratory therapists, nursing assistants, residents and support staff all there and available at a moments notice, then stress levels can run a bit high, especially if you work somewhere with high acuity patients. One way to decrease stress is to be prepared and know what to do in the worst case scenarios.

    Bro I'm only a student but I'm nearing the end of my schooling. During school you are 95% of the time on a med-surg floor, and the other 5% are special days you get to spend in another department. I spent a day or two in the OR watching surgeries and seeing what the nurses do, spent a day in the ER helping nurses do simple things, a week on a pediatric floor, going to spend a week or so doing OB rotation ( fml...lol).

    My opinion is that med-surg is repetitive and stressful , but a necessary evil for most new grads nowadays to learn.
    in the OR, as expected little patient interaction (well none when they are asleep) , basically documenting a lot, scrubbing people in, labeling samples, setting up sterile fields etc...
    pediatric- considered one of the holy grails i guess....i wouldn't really like dealing with sick kids and their parents so no...

    In the ER, nurses really have to know their shiet. It was a level 1 trauma center so idk about other places. You have couple open beds and paramedics start bringing pt's in. You have standing orders, basically physician orders for whatever the pt is being admitted for, and you can carry them out. If you decide something needs to be done, you can verbalize it to the physician and he'll ok it (most of the time from what i saw). You can't be a herp derp nurse. The chick i was with was on top of her game.

    Nice post. Saw you mention documenting. I guess I'm being exposed to that now on my readings but how hard is it to document stuff on ER setting and non ER setting? Like for example I took a note of this:

    Subject..........Verb.........Condition/Modifiers................Criterion of Desired Performance
    Client.............drinks........2500 mL of fluid...................dialy (time)
    ------------

    Problem Related to Etiology As manifested by Signs and Symptoms
    Situational.......Related to (r/t) Feeling of...........as manifested by..........hypersensitivity to criticism;
    Low Esteem ...........................rejection..........(a.m .b).......................states, "," and rejects

    yes. there are many ways to skin a cat. While in school, you keep your hands on 3 and 9. When you graduate, one hand is on 7, the other is flicking them off

    What kinda of nursing gear are you guys wearing to the hospital? Which brand of scrubs and shoes? Right now I'm wearing some generic Dickies scrubs and I'm trying to find a good pair of shoes that's good for walking and standing for hours at a time. Don't really like the Nike Free Runs and New Balance Minimus as hospital shoes...

    Landau scrubs are pretty decent. Plenty of pockets. I wore some nike running shoes. Whatever is comfortable on your feet.

    EMT checking in, it is always nice to get another POV of healthcare. Maybe we can learn something from each other.
