    I'm wondering where that facebook group disappeared to as well...i thought it was just acting up for me.
    Yes, it seems to have disappeared. There is a new one, I am sure it is not affiliated with the old one. There is also a generic new grad page, not specific to CA.

    What is the best search on facebook for the new CA group? Strange how we can't get to the old one.

    I think whoever started the old original page disabled it. Sad because that was a great resource, along with this site (which thankfully, is still running).

    Hi All,
    I have a Bsc in Nuclear Medicine and interested in taking a second degree in nursing. I like this field too. Will it be a good idea to do nursing now. I don't care about the money I just have a passion for it. I want to do it. Any ideas? Thanks

    If you have a true passion for nursing try to go to a few nursing schools in your area and see if you can talk to some students or faculty to get a true perspective on nursing before you choose it as a path. Ultimately the decision is up to you and only you if you want to go for it now, later, or never. There's no right or wrong answer.

    Chin up, 6 months is nothing.

    There was a slew of positions open recently (like, very, very recently). I hope you applied to them.

    Good luck!
