Hey Evelyn-I would have posted earleir but for some reason, my computer this week would not let me log into the forums.
What have you heard about North ARundel? I havent heard much about either one. At NAH they have retention bonuses which is really nice. They are issued every Jan and July and what you recieve depends on what shift you work (for example nights i believe gets about 2500 i think). They have also paid for kaplan and all the fees for the nclex which is nice. They just built a new cancer center and are planning to build another building with L&D, etc and some more med surg floors also.
I have not heard much about AAMC. But the people that i know that have worked there seemed to have liked it.
Oh, I think that North ARundel is still paper charting, at least that was what i was shown when i went on a tour of the unit i will be working there. So if i pass boards on the 1st, ill start on the 12th of July so hopefully then i can give you some more info!
Back to kaplan, i got my readiness exam back and i was in the passing range ( i was borderline for the diagnostic), and still i have taken the CD quizzes up to test 4 and have only recieved the highest grade of 65%. Frusturating!
And the countdown beging 4 days till i test! :uhoh21:
