I was in the BSN program. And I absolutely loved it. As far as what to expect, everyone's different. I only went to class half the time, studied by the powerpoints & did fine. Some people struggled the whole way through, and some either flunked out or dropped out. It's not a cake walk, but when it gets hard, remind yourself of why you're there. And don't give up when it gets hard either--you have got to WANT it. And the teachers are phenomenal; and don't listen to all the horror stories either--it's just child birth in that when you ask for people's opinions, you're going to get the worst case scenarios. I absolutely loved my time there & I feel as though when I got done, I was as prepared as any other new grad could be.
Good luck to all of you who are graduating--I hope you already have jobs lined up!
Definitely RN, but in this economy, I honestly don't think it matters. At least a doctor's office or nursing homes wants LPN's (cheaper to hire); they're not interested in RN's, and right now hospitals aren't hiring all that much.
I'm a new RN with a BSN--I've put in 2 different apps & haven't heard a thing back.
CeCe, thanks--that is very kind of you! What does "COU" stand for?
I can only refer to the Bham area....the hotspots around here are Trussville (shopping/restaurants), and Springville is the newer one. They are both pretty close together--Trussville about 10 minutes from Bham; Springville about 20 minutes from Bham. Springville is a quieter community. Someone said Chelsea, and it is nice, but Hwy 280 traffic is nothing short of hell.
Just depends on what you like--single? family? parties? downtown? etc....
In Bham, we have Trinity, StV Bham & StV East (closer to Trussville), UAB (huuuuge), Children's....I'm sure there's more, but my brain is completely fried. December 19th, here I come
I absolutely CANNOT get the woman from StV East to call me back--does anyone know about StV E's orientation program--I recently heard that they started a program where you can rotate in different departments when you first get hired on.
Does anyone know anything about this? Thanks.
I'm about to start my practicum at StV Bham. Does anyone *currently* work there? If so, how do you like it?
I'm interested in the Bham hospitals (namely UAB & StV), if you work there & you had loans, do they pay them? How does this work?
I'm currently a first-semester student at JSU. By what they tell us, the lowest GPA was 3.4. It's so much fun, but it is ALOT of stuff. We had a starting class (I think) of 57 & about 5 have dropped. I have 2 children, ages 6 & 4 & so if I can do it, I'm sure you can. Good luck in your choosing!!!
I believe when they 1st started that program, there was less than 10. Now, it's up to +100. I'm sure you'll love it; I have the STEP coordinator for lecture. I absolutely love her; she's so nice & caring. Good luck!!
HELP!!!! I'VE STARTED READING & I CAN'T STOP!!! Every time I finish reading something, there's just more to read....and MORE....and MORE....
I just started the BSN at Jacksonville. I'm just wondering if any of you are there, too? So far, I LOVE IT! (Now....you have to remember this was the 1st week!!!!)
nope; but i'm about to start the "traditional" bsn. i'm so excited & so nervous. i'm married & got 2 kids & i'm worried about having time to study!!
Jacksonville's letter arrived on June 15th (Saturday)--I got a YES!
