- Dec 25, '08 by angelgrliaAre you an LPN or CNA?
- Dec 27, '08 by island40Go to the hospitals and look into tech or assistant jobs. Even working in the dietary department will help you later on when you want a good nursing job.

The Western Home (downtown Cedar Falls) is an excellent facility. I have been there for 5 years and love it.
Also, The Luthren Home and Friendship Village are supposed to be a good ones.
I would stay away from Ravenwood, Parkview, Country View (county home), etc. They are traps for crappy care.
Both hospitals are good though!
- Jan 2, '09 by natalioThanks for the suggestions. I am an LPN working towards my RN
- Jan 28, '09 by orthonurse09I recommend the hospital on on the north side of town, just get on their website and look for tech jobs there are a lot open right now.
- Mar 11, '09 by island40Do you know that Hawkeye uses a grading scale that does not have +/-? That means that if you get a little lower than a B your GPA will reflect a C not a B- or C+?????
- Mar 11, '09 by natalioThat is right, 80% is considerred not passing.
- Mar 14, '09 by island40it is more than just having an 80% pass rate. You would be hard pressed to find a nursing school that does not have an 80% required passing rate. The difference is that instead of your transcript having a B- with a 2.66 GPA you get a C and a GPA of 2.0!! Big difference when you try to get a higher degree- GPA counts!. Big difference if you need to go to another school to attempt to finish the nursing degree- 2.0 may keep you out and 2.66 could have gotten you in.
