Some advice for students, from a new grad.

  1. I Graduated from Pasadena with an ADN, my first mistake. Most of the new grad jobs being offered are to BSN's. Also, apply for ANY job you can that is in a hospital (if that is where you would like to work) and make time to volunteer. I felt i needed to spend every moment when i wasn't in school with my eyes on a book, looking at videos, practicing skills or anything else nursing related that i thought would make me a better nurse in the end, and it all served little purpose. So what if i passed NCLEX in 75, can't find a job and I'm pretty sure I'm showing all the signs of depression.
    Balance thats the key, Eye on the prize and look at the bigger picture.
