Congratulations Kathleen!! What a great feeling that must be!

I'm getting towards the end of my program now (in the last rotation - peds), do a 2 mo integration & graduate in May. Then comes the dreaded nclex. What a relief to be through it already!! Can't wait for that!

Many Congrats!!! My best friend is currently in nursing school and I see how hard she studies and stresses ~ that is a great accomplishment, you should be very proud. hug2.gif

 

Healthcare is also one of the few industries that stays strong even when the economy is in the tank because there are always sick people no matter what, so you are in a great field!!! rolleyes.gif

Kaplan has an owesome online q-bank of questions. I felt like I was taking another Kaplan quiz when I was taking my NCLEX. Can't say enough about Kaplan. I could not have done it without them. Best of luck. Sucks going to school and planning a wedding. I would be studying and be on this dam forum cause it is so addicting.

Thanks for the advice about Kaplan - I'll definitely look into that. Did you take their class? I bought the Saunders book, but the more practice questions the better!

I know, this forum is addicting! And it doesn't take much to distract me from studying - pediatric congenital heart defects vs playing around online? no contest there. :)

I did take their course, but the classes I felt are a waste of time. I think they have eight scheduled classes. First and last classes are predictor tests. All the other classes are going over NCLEX questions for the reading that you were scheduled to read and on-line tests. That got old after the first day, but you have to attend for the money back guarentee if you fail. The qestions and review are also on-line.

I was an average student and could not have passed without their resources. They have on-line someone lecturing from the book. So if your really weak in an area you listen to the lecture. I was better at that than reading. LAZY !!! Ask around and see what other people say. Kaplan tells you what to know so your not so overwhelmed. The drugs were the hardest for me. Just to many. Need anything let me know.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
