    I passed a couple weeks ago with a 929. I did 50 questions a day of Saunders or NCLEX 4000. I also read the entire med-surg section in the blue HESI book. I subscribed to the NCSBN question bank but I didn't find it helpful, the questions were nothing like on the regular HESI.

    Hey california nurses, I know its rough out there but after I graduate from my midwestern school, I'm moving to california. I'd like to know how competitive I am for residencies/new grad positions. I graduate in April.
    My specs: BSN, 3.7 cum gpa (~3.5 nursing), externship at top 10 ten hospital in ICU, male, no other health care experience, background in IT/programming, but spotty work history with a lot of gaps (28 years old).
    I wanted to add - I will live anywhere in California, from north to south to the central valley or even up in the sierras. I would also be willing to live in a more rural area if necessary.

    I always thought I had the hepatitis B vaccine, but wasn't able to find the paperwork, and just put it off for later. At my school I could "opt out" for the clinicals, so thats what I did. I just got an amazing opportunity of an externship for this summer off from school at a hospital in a different state, but now I'm worried about the Hep B thing. I got titers drawn, which came back negative! My mom insists I got the vaccine, but I can't find it at any of the doctors I went to. I'm thinking my mom never got it for me and was just confused. I have the first of the 3 shots scheduled for today, but they won't be done until the very end of the summer, way after the externship is over.

    So those who work in hospitals or have knowledge of the situation. Should I be OK? The externship is only 10 weeks. I don't have the paperwork to know yet if I definitively need hep B, but I should get it in a few weeks. What has been your experience with this vaccine? My future kind of rides on the answer

    Greetings from Iowa!

    I have a project to do for nursing school and need some opinions on california's mandated nursing staff ratios. I'd like to know anyones experiences with it - how do you like it? Have you worked in other states? Do you feel that the nursing ratios have increased quality of care? Have the ratios affected your autonomy at all?

    I'd appreciate any anecdotes to how the mandated staffing ratios are working out.

    Thanks!!

    I hope the situation improves then! I will finish in 2013, will be 30 when I'm done, and I don't have a plan B!

    Lol, why are people from california always such spoiled brats about it? Mental health? As someone who also went to SMC and now lives in Iowa, Just get over it and do your ADN in kansas.
