Hi everyone, new grad NP here.
Location: Long Island, NY
Med surg at NYP is a 6:1 ratio
I just graduated from LIU in January 2012. I took classes at KC my last semester. I loved it. Classes are way nicer than the ones on campus and they have a little student lounge area that's way nicer than the one on campus. Your clinicals don't have to be at KC....they're whereever the section you choose for clinicals are. Hope this helps.
I graduated with my BSN Jan. 20, 2012.....took the NCLEX on Jan 27th. Got my job Jan. 31st. Totally blessed to get a job where I did my senior preceptorship.
I agree with everyone else. Don't quit. Get the experience. I am a new grad on a tele unit and adore it. You get med/surg patients, cardiac pt requiring tele monitoring. Plus.....post cardiac cath...ablation....stent placements...rapid afib....conversions....... I love this unit. The patients have ever changing conditions and they come from all walks of life. There's NEVER a dull moment on my unit. My advice......stick with it....you may like it. You will learn a variety of skills!
I love my Dansko's!!!!
Are you in the 190 level? or 390 level? It wasn't clear in your post.
I graduated in December 2011. The program is what you make of it. I personally don't regret going to LIU one bit. In reality....employers love LIU graduates. I am currently working and I love it. Don't let anything get you down. Just roll with the punches and finish up the program. You're almost done........... I heard about what happened this semester but you have look beyond the negativity and embrace the positive. You've made it this far in the program and you will graduate. Don't let the negativity rule you.
I am a new grad in NYC and make $38/hr (base)
Totally agree. #2 :spin: Singed nose hairs may indicate respiratory issues. You would look at that patient first ABCs Plus....the other person is dead. Nothing more you can do for them.
Got the good pop up! I passed! So freaked as I had a ton of meds I had no idea about!
Congrats to my fellow test takers!
Hey, Go to an open interview. Just look at their career website. They always have open interviews for experienced RNs. Good luck.
When it says: "Delivery successful" :spin:
No. In my school, we needed a C+ to pass the class, and an 85% to pass the dosage calculations test. There is no curving of grades in nursing school. I graduated with a 3.3 average.
"Failure is NOT an option!!" You got this!!!!! Good luck!
