    Try schools, large corporations and try correction facilites. Think outside the box.

    NO! The job market is terrible here, especially with no exp. Stay in NY and keep sending out resumes?

    I have a BS but not in nursing. I worked at the hospital already so I got hired fairly quickly. I've been on my own for a month now and love it. There are still a bunch from last Dec that haven't found jobs yet let alone those that graduated in May. It's very hard out there, I'll be honest. You need to think outside the box when looking for a job. Look at a correctional facility for example. If you're not already working in a hospital it MIGHT be a little hard with a ASD to get in. A lot of my friends who were working as a Nurse Assistant or PCA all got jobs within a hospital they worked for. Of course some got hired without being employeed by a hospital. Get hired, wait about 6mo or so and begin going for your BSN.

    The PP is a guide.You need to read the book esp when you get into 203. Go over questions from Mosbys and Lippincotts NCLEX review..several questions come from those questions.

    Yes it is true they are. Not sure why. We all sit for the same test. If you do go for the AD program, make sure you go get a job as a Tech or Student Nurse it's a good backdoor way to get into a facility.

    We only lost 2. We graduated 48 I think. 201 is challenging, there is more expected of you. If I remember correctly 201 has a lot of adjuncts teaching which made it hard b/c they aren't writing the tests which made it kind of useless to go to class. I hope they read our reviews and changed that. Where r u doing clinical?

    You should have white shoes(some girls had crocks but most had sneakers) and buy whatever scope you want. Littmanns is fine. I have an Ultrascope which I think is better but don't go overboard and spend $190 because there's always the possiblity you might forget it at clinical and it will never be found again. Stick with a $80-$100 max. And you will find there, that the information tree has a few branches missing.

    Very good question. I'm in the same predicament. I usually get in a few hours in the early morning and 1-2 more after everyone in my house goes to bed. But it never seems like enough.
    No it doesn't and that's whats freakin me out! I'm still waiting for the wonderful woman at the State to give me my number to sign up for the test. I did Hurst review and loved it and I am reviewing their core material and doing Lippincott Q&A from 9 to about 1 then do stuff around town,pick up the little one from school, blah blah blah, its 8-9p and I'm exhausted. I avg 125q/day but it doesn't seem enough. Ughh!

    For those of us who have families and can't devote 5hrs/day 6days/wk, what kind of study schedule have you been using? And for those that passed what did you use? Thx!

    When you graduate don't you just get a certificate and not an A.D.? How does that work?

    You should take a review class to help you. I recommend Hurst.

    Well I would assume they would look at it like any other State school. Plus, you're already an RN with hopefully 1yr exp. You should be ok.

    Just graduated so if you have any questions I can hopefully answer some.

    There is nothing at UCONN and haven't heard from Hartford since 5/16. I heard that Yale will be on a hiring freeze come late July when they officially buy St Ray's.
