Hello, everyone my name is Tyler and I just have a few questions that hopefully some of you could answer.
1) currently, I live in Ohio and I have been accepted into a BSN nursing program out here. Originally, I am from California and my goal is to eventually live back in California when I graduate from this nursing school. My question is, when I acquire my nursing license out here in Ohio, will that allow me to move fluidly to California with it, or would I have to Re-take some sort of examination since I will be switching states?
2) my second question deals with the "nursing shortage" and "experienced nurses". I've been reading around on the forum and read many, many posts saying how there really is no nursing shortage and its hard for new grads to get jobs that have no experience. Currently I work in a local hospital as a PCT, and I am wondering, does this job contribute to that "experience" some new grades don't have, or are they talking about actual RN experience?
