    Anyone thinking about working in a CNA, PCT, ET or Nurse Tech position after completing Fundamentals? I have found that FH, St. Joe's, TGH and All Children's Hosptial will hire you into these positions if you have completed the 1st semester of nursing school. They have "senior" Nurse Tech positions with a little more diversity for those in their final semester. I think it would definitely help to land a job once we are "new grads" if we have our feet already in the door so to speak.

    Hey Guys! Hope you all enjoyed your holiday! I was wondering if anybody got the email with further information from hcc? Now there was a lot of info given and I thought she said she would get us the link to certified background. Can somebody refresh my memory?

    I highly suggest doing so. I had a phone interview and that's one of the main points the recruiter kept making, why hire me (a new ADN nurse) with prior CNA experience over someone with recent CNA experience? I think it will definitely help!

    Some hospitals will only hire new BSN nurses that is true. Some do hire ADN nurses though . In the tough market, I can see why a BSN would help, I've been turned down many times because I only have my ADN. FAFSA is a form, but federal financial aid should pay for both prerequisites and nursing classes if you don't have a bachelors in another field.

    The Nursing department said that certified background should be emailing all new students their access code and directions today.

    I did not get the email either. I did get a follow-up email from the director of clinicals (Herrin). It pretty much just said that certified background had emailed us and to contact her via email with any questions. I emailed her saying that I never received the initial email. If anyone has the access code (I believe they are different for each campus) please share.
