    What stethoscopes do you guys have?

    I've always had a Littman cardio III but for the second time someone stole mine. Since they recently came out with the cardio IV I picked one up.

    Actually notice a difference. Listening to the heart on myself is all I've really been able to do, but it's definitely louder/clearer. Good news still no murmur.

    More and more schools are going to an online model which makes things easier and much more flexible. I got my masters in 3 full-time semesters and 2 summer semesters with one class each (Summer/Fall/Spring/Summer/Fall). Graduation was only the 4th or 5th time I had ever been on campus. It is much more reasonable than BSN education. Certain specialties are in very high demand and pay better than others.

    I'm looking at going back to school and getting a bachelors in nursing. The local school offers an accelerated program with people that already have a bachelors in science. I spent two years in PA school but left for personal reasons. Really wanting to get back into healthcare. Is it difficult to get in. Want to pursue an NP program some day.

    The accelerated students where I'm at tend to generally hate their lives but I think people just like to complain. They do it in 12 months, I did it in 4 semesters over 2 years with summer break, so 17 months. 12 seems very doable. If you were in PA school I'd assume you're capable of handling it, but you'll be pretty damn busy.

    Yeah I did fine in PA school, just left after I started struggling with some alcoholism and when I tried to go back after treatment the school wouldn't let me. Now I can't afford to repeat PA school but I can afford a year long nursing school.

    JacobPalmer How do you do your preceptorship? Do you do it on its own, or do you complete it while taking other nursing courses? I'm working on finishing 200+ hours of precepting while doing Community Health and a Leadership class.

    We do it on it's own. Our last final was before spring break. 175 hours between this week and the end of April.

    Which is pretty nice because I sit around with nothing to do 4 days a week and can focus on the NCLEX heavily.

    I utilized the resources from the board I was certifying through, the ANCC. Bought a book and a test bank of like 300 questions with rationales. I feel like the big test prep classes/courses are overrated and overpriced.

    Find a program that does everything you want, RN to BSN, BSN to MSN, etc. If I was starting over I would probably go get my Associates at whatever cheap, quick, local Community college or whatever, then go to work for a while, then go back gradually for RN, NP

    Doing mine a pretty roundabout way. 2nd go around at a degree, already have a liberal arts degree. I actually have myLPN license(didnt have any previous experience in health care and wasn't sure if nursing was for me) currently transitioning to the ADN program this semester and in the fall I'll have 2 semesters left in the ADN program. After that I plan on working and getting my BSN within a year.

    Yeah but I'm about to be married with a step son. I don't have the time to take two years for an associates when I can get the BSN in 12 months. I'm not worried about the school. The program is at the medical school and they do the MSN as well. I just hope I can get in because I do have a past but I went to treatment and have been doing well for a while now.

    If it takes 2 years to get your Associates something is wrong. I only recommended it bc it is usually the fastest and cheapest way to get into the field, these programs are usually also more accommodating to non traditional students. Most BSN programs have wait lists, take longer and cost more $$$. Just what I have seen. By all means if you can get your BSN in 12 months do it but it will be miserable.

    I tend to recommend the associates route to others myself. Get in the field quicker and then use that usually cheaper degree to pay for a less expensive BSN than some of the traditional BSN programs.

    JacobPalmer as for ati it can go fuck itself. I don't know if they changed it but when I was there they would literally make it apart of your grade. And then the whole trying to work with the ati coaches to prepare for the nclex was ultra frustrating. You'd do like one thing a day, maybe they'd get back to you, and never would you get two sections down.

    So I gave up on it and figured, I'll just take the test and I'll pass. I didn't pass. I got the full runn on questions and they were all peds, post partum and L/D. Couldn't fucking believe it.

    The retake I tried to just ignore the idiocy of ati and work through it. Again I stopped. I bought an app on my phone from pocket prep. Just answered questions on it and next time I took the test 75 in 50 minutes and I went and bought beer.

    These best thing is just to get into the mindset of the question and ignore distractors they'll put into questions.

    Any luck with your applications? I have always wanted to go the CRNA route, but not sure my nursing school GPA will get me into anything other than a private school program. If you’re willing to work in rural areas, I know they can make bank.
