    I went there only for clinicals. I was on orthopedics/med surge floors. I've been to many of the other hospitals and I still think that none of the others come close to Overlook. Great Hospital!!!!!

    As far as I know, nursing has an exception.The sponsor doesn't have to prove that he/she couldn't find a US citizen for that position.(I have heard that from an immigration lawyer).

    I am currently enrolled in a US College. Even tough I'm on F-1 visa, I'll be a US graduate. I was thinking about Magnet Hospitals. I know that they only hire BSN graduates.Do you think that could work out? Do you have any suggestions? There is also an OBGYN, MD who wants to hire me after I graduate because I speak the language that most of his patients speak.( I'm not a Philipino or Spanish). Do you think I have a chance with him for an H1B?

    Hi, I'm an F-1 student too. I'll be graduating next May with BSN. I'd like to hear your stories. The biggest problem is:When they sponsor you for green card, you're not sure if you can get it before OPT ends. Therefore, you need to apply for H-1B too. However, an ADN graduate can become an RN too, therefore, you need something specific( job description should state that this position requires BSN). Please let me know about your experiences..Good luck...

    I was on Med-Surg floor for my clinicals this semester. It is a very good hospital (Waaaay goood than Clara Mass). Nurses over there were mostly satisfied with their jobs. Actually, I will be graduating next May and was thinking about applying there. Please let me know how it went, and tell me more about your experience there later....Good luck....

    We have math test at the beginning of each semester. You have to get 90 in your sophmore and junior year, and 100 in your senior year. It is very basic math, so no need to worry. Just pay attention to the units they give and they ask, also rounding the numbers ( always round the IV pump to the nearest whole number ). Believe me, when you're dealing with classes like patho or pharm, you won't even care to study for the math test. Good luck!!!

    As a senior BSN student, I can say that DO your reading and assignments on time. We have 7-8 chapters (some times even 13) for each test. If you procrastinate, it will be very frustrating. For me and my classmates, there is no social life at all. I don't want to sound negative, but that's the reality. However, it is definitely worth it after all. Once you start your clinicals and see the smile on your patient's face just because of your caring approach to them, you'll know it's worth it. Nursing is not just about hanging IV's or doing assessments. The therapeutic communication you will establish with your patients will also affect your social life. You'll become a better listener and much more patient than you were before.

    My surviving skill is recording the lectures and listening to them over and over again while my book and power points are in front of me. My school is using ATI. Reading from ATI is also very helpful. About the caffeine: Most of my friends are having palpitations at the age of 21! I try my best to avoid caffeine. Good luck everyone!!!!

    I also got pre-calculus online, it wasn't a good idea. People! Do not ever take a math class online. I passed with an A but had to study the whole book by myself.

    I would not recommend you to take the micro online. I just got my A.S. in biology and I took micro last fall. I studied soooo hard and passed with 97 (A+). However, u should be in class to do that. It is a very important class for nursing. U better reconsider your decision.
