    You don't have to pick a speciality while still in school and can always change after working for awhile. Great thing about nursing!
    I don't remember about acceptance, sorry. I graduated in 2009.
    Don't remember any official study groups but I made my own with my friends!

    Are you doing prereqs first semester or did you already do those?

    It's intense and you have to study a lot and not a lot of time to work on the side or during the summer.
    But I liked it and awesome neighborhood!
    I got a job at NYPresbyterian in L&D after I graduated.

    I went there! Any questions in particular?

    I did this exact same thing. My NY license was still current.
    It's a pain. You need fingerprints, transcript, several forms of ID, and proof that you worked as a nurse in the past few years (which sounds like you don't have so you may need to do continuing Ed and submit that)
    Info is on GA BON. Good luck!

    I would say postpartum of all the inpatient specialties.
    It's soooo much less stressful than L&D for sure....
    I'd guess outpatient surgery would be relatively low stress but never worked it myself. (Especially if you have the job where you just admit the patients. I think that exists in some places)

    Quote from chare
    When you say part time, how many days a week are you referring to?

    It doesn't say.
    But I assume 2 12s a week?

    I'd hope so!! I would hope at least 8!
    We'll see...

    I'm being considered for a part time PICU position.
    My experience is about 3.5 years of L&D and 6 months of mother/baby (PRN).
    So not a new nurse but new to Peds and the ICU environment.
    I plan to ask about orientation in an interview but just wondering what answer I should hope to hear.
    Do part timers get less orientation overall? (Especially if they work part-time during orientation?)

    I completely understand. I'm a mom to a 3 year old and as a mom I have anxiety about accidents, drowning etc.
    But I am very drawn to Peds - NICU, PICU, surgery, oncology... I could see myself being happy in any of those areas in our children's hospital.

    I just applied to a PICU position.
    We'll see if anything materializes.

    Just curious - what did you decide and how is it going if you're in PICU?

    I'm being considered for a part time position in one of their travel vaccination clinics.
    I love to travel so I find it interesting.
    Would only be one day a week and they seem flexible with hours which is nice.
    I have another PRN hospital job and I teach a clinical for nursing school so this is just a little supplement.
    I would be the only one in the office when I work which is a little strange. But maybe nice in a way.
    Curious to hear if anyone else had experiences with them!

    I sit to document and when I start IVs and sometimes when going over discharge papers.

    I resigned while on maternity leave. My plan was to be a SAHM for awhile and my husband runs his own business so we had to buy our own insurance. I resigned a few weeks after my son was born and I think my benefits lasted to the end of the month (I called HR to confirm).
    So I arranged ahead for our new insurance to start as soon as that ran out.
    My delivery and prenatal visits were covered 100% and they didn't make me pay for them because I resigned.
    Though every place is different I guess.

    Disneyworld!!!

    But seriously I love Disney and we're going in Jan with our son which I hope will be an annual thing. I figure roughly two shift covers one day of Disney.
    I just picture how much fun my son will have there and it makes it worth it.
    Also I'm per diem

    I don't have much advice but those are two of my dream jobs so congratulations!!!

    Are the jobs days or nights? (And which shift do you prefer?)

    Is OR 12 hour shifts? (Some do 8s or 10s). Does the OR job require weekends, holidays or call?
