1st volunteer at a hospital, interview nurses in different fields with wide ranges of experience from novice to mentor. Do this to determine if this is what you want because what non-nurses or even nursing admission counselors often leave out is that many brand new nurses end up hating it and leaving nursing all together within the 1st year and it is NOT ALWAYS easy to find a job. Next research jobs on hospital websites, indeed, simply hired etc. Look at requirements to determine if you need an ADN or BSN. After you decide what is best for you and will get you the job research boards of nursing to determine which schools have the highest pass rates on the license exam. Then research the school and contact the school of nursing or dept.of nursing to obtain more info on admission requirements. Hope that helps!
Congrats on SNB1014 on getting the "good pop-up!" Six 24 hr days or 4 business days to be exact. I took NCLEX January 18th. Repeatedly got the "good pop-up." I waited until Tuesday January 22nd to get quick results because I felt like it would be a rip off if I only had to wait a day or two to see my name on the TXBON website. Two days after quick results (January 24th) my name appeared on the TXBON website somewhere around 9am.
Congratulations! Thank you for those encouraging words. I was beginning to become discouraged and sustain panic attacks as my date gets closer. Especially considering the multitude of recent success stories on this site are attributed to Kaplan. Thank you for the reassurance that I made a good investment to think "NCLEXY" and know my content "without a doubt and without hesitation!" Is this the only resource you used to prepare for NCLEX?
Macgirl: Totally understand this dilemma I'm a 3rd semester JW nursing student (JW's-quite the hot medical topic!). This is a matter of conscience which you should think and research thoroughly. The participation or lack of participation in this form of treatment may be viewed differently depending on perspectives and what individual consciences allow. You should discuss this primarily with the nurse supervisor or manager upon being hired so that the nurse supervisor or manager is aware of your situation. A career change isn't necessary unless you feel this field isn't for you. There are a multitude of nurses with disabilities/varying differences that make individual circumstances different and the way he or she practice nursing differently. Be strong, pray fervently for wisdom and discernment to choose the best unit/job for you. Hope this helps.
