What is the blog all about

I’m Amy and I set up this blog to give our nursing class of 2009 at Durham Technical Community College a place to talk about issues pertaining to our pinning ceremony.  I have also found sites and other items of interest that I have added as links that might be helpful to other nursing students.  I got my inspiration from Dani of Tired Student Nurses.  Dani has an amazing website that has helped me through 2 years of nursing school.  Dani has since been forced to disassemble her web blog so I have copied some of her questions under “NCLEX style practice questions”.  I hope you find them as helpful as I did.  Thanks Dani!

If you want to be a nurse, know that nursing school will take a full time commitment.  It is not easy.  Of course, we will hold peoples’ lives in our hands when we get in the work force, so it should not be easy.  I’ll let you know if the rewards of becoming a nurse are worth the torture of nursing school.  I think they will be.  I do pray to God that if I ever become as non-compassionate as some of the nurses I have come in contact with while in school that he will lead me out of the profession.  I have also come across some of the most wonderful human beings I’ve ever met that truly embody what a nurse should be; please let me be like them.

If anybody has any links, quick notes, or NCLEX questions they think might be helpful to other nursing students, feel free to paste them in a comment and I will move them to the proper section.  I would also love some feedback on what else you think might be helpful.

    I just wanted to say thanks! I wish I would have found this when I started a year and a half ago! If I come across anything that would be helpful I will be sure to include it. I found your top 10 NS Dx and thought it was fantastic~ and how true! I did share it with one of my awesome nursing instructors and made sure to reference your site.🙂 Keep up the good work, and I hope my prayers will be answered as well; to be a great nurse!

    I just found your blog while googling NCLEX review questions…I’m a 2nd year RN student at Highline Community College near Seattle, WA. Thank you so much for this wonderful composite of great information! The study notes, the NCLEX questions, the blog entries on nursing career…this will help me survive this last year. Thank you again!

    Hi Amy, I am currently a nursing student in my 4th term and was looking for stuff on post partum assessment for a paper I am doing when I stumbled across your blog. It is amazing I have been sharing it with my fellow students because we have all been really struggling with Health Restoration and Reorganization and I really think all the quizes you have posted are going to be a vary valuable study tool for us. We have all been very stressed because our instructors told us they were very worried that quite a few of us were not going to make it through this term. I really feel that finding this site just might be the help we need to get to the end with our whole class still in tact.
    Thank you so much
    Stephanie

    I’m always asked about good and bad food, but even a spoon of butter can be right for your diet if you’re deficient in those nutrients.
    At the end of this post, you will be able to spot and smell a health food lie when you see it.
    First, let’s get one thing straight; health food amp vitamins, though they do improve your physical performance, are not steroids.
