Hey.....if you still go there, check out my alter-ego's activity page now and then, would you? I'm curious to see how long I keep "active" even though I'm banned! Last time they manipulated my data was 2/8, as far as I know

Also.....I know I'm going to kick myself for this, but.....how bad does the PVT/NCLEX mythology look? Does it still work 100% of the time if you use an expired card and if you get a lot of SATA that means you definitely passed? rofl.....

Do you know of anyone who passed with 85 questions? Does this mean I failed?!

If you're afraid of SATA, my alter/later ego did a wonderful piece on why you shouldn't fear them. Maybe somebody could go bump it.

Oh....just too much! Lol.... I decided to go look at it lol, look at the nclex forum pages... What a freaking mess! There are myths upon myths upon myths! One of the more regular members posted a 'what you should know' kind of thing ...facts about the NCLEX, really just a cursory basic basic thing, and people were commenting on how it should be a sticky and it was amazing news. ROFL... I had articles....tons of myth-buster stuff that got a huge amount of likes, but of course they get pushed to the very bottom of the forum pages never to be seen again. Too bad... I had an article called facts about the NCLEX... Things you should know... Oh well.

If people feel better freaking out by submitting their credit card information 30 times an hour until they get charged... So be it. If they want to believe that getting 103 questions is bad but 100 questions is good... So be it. If they want to believe that if the PVTD "tells"them they passed and it's 100% accurate... Guess it doesn't matter to the rest of us, does it? Either they will get the shock of their lives when they get the failure notice... Or those that paid 200 bucks stupidly for playing the game find out they pass later on... Just honestly can't believe that this is still such a confused topic for so many! I mean really: all of this is right on the NCSBN website! There are no myths or secrets that are not laid out in black and white right there. These are our future nurses....yikes.

Have one of the CNAs at work starting LPN school next week. SCARY because she is a crappy aide, rude to the patients, and already thinks she knows more than the LPNs and RNs on the floor. Just the thought of her getting a license scares the HELL out of me..

Oh, lord. Anyone who's ever taught students can testify that those are the WORST students."I know/can do everything a nurse knows/does, I'm just here for the credential." I can't tell you how many of those I've seen.
They also tend to be the ones that whine about how mean the faculty are and the ones their classmates tell them will be AWESOME NURSES because they can have all their patients "done up" by nine a.m. They don't know jackshit about nursing assessment, diagnosis, and planning, and they are the ones that sneer the loudest about what bunk that is. They're totally task focused. They have literally (and I use this word very specifically - it doesn't mean 'really') no idea why anything else matters.
And they make mediocre nurses, at best. If they pass NCLEX.
