I'm in the same boat. I've been working in a post-acute care center for 8 months and though I am very happy to have a job, it is not acute care and I just don't know where to turn to get into a hospital. It seems no one cares about post-acute experience. How the heck are we supposed to get acute care experience if no one will hire people without it?!?! Anyway, good luck to all of us!! I am just trying to stay positively motivated Supposedly after we get the first year or so acute experience we are set for life, jobs coming out our ears! God bless the under-experienced!!
I got my BSN online through Chamberlain. Great program and no it isn't a problem when applying for jobs. There are no clinicals when going from RN to BSN, but to get your masters might be a different story. I would be weary of on online MSN program, unless they have clinicals incorporated into the program. Good luck!
Hello, I just moved to Berkeley CA from Chicago. I have reciprocity in California so my license is valid here. I am a new grad so I am looking for advise on where to start looking for jobs in this area, and if anyone has any recommendations or advise for me. Thanks!
Does anyone know if it is possible to transfer from US license to Italy? I can't seem to find anything online about the requirements in Italy. Also, if anyone works as a nurse there can you give me some input please? I'm moving to Florence in a month and I'd love to work there/volunteer if I can't work. Grazie!
Thank you so much! I'll probably end up going there. I'm also going to be taking Italian studies because I'll be living in Italy while I'm taking the BSN courses on line, so can you tell me realistically (compared to nursing school) how intense it is and how much time I can expect to dedicate to it? Just don't want to overload myself... Also, if you don't mind telling me how much it cost compared to other school? Sorry all the questions!
I'm thinking about doing an RN to BSN online program... Does anyone have any recommendations?? Affordable??
Anyone taken this program?? Just looking for feedback...
I'm looking to enroll in an RN to BSN online program... any suggestions?? I am seriously looking into Chamberlain, so any feedback on them would be much appreciated, but all or any advise would help. Thanks!
Has anyone been involved in the Chamberlain RN to BSN on line program? I'm just looking for feedback on what you thought of the it and if you would recommend it...
Thank you for your advise! I will definitely be looking into the online BSN programs. I really appreciate your advise
Thank you! Yeah I'm so excited but I'm also feeling apprehensive because I just spent all that time in school and I'm afraid I will not be able to find a job if I take time off... I do feel better though that they offer refresher courses. Thank you!
I graduated last October and can't find a job anywhere, so I have an opportunity to move to Italy for a year and I think I'm going to take it but I am worried about taking the time off from nursing practice... Does anyone know how this will affect my getting hired later on down the line and what I will need to do to get back into it? Like a refresher course??
Also to be more specific, while you're in nursing school you'll go through clinical rotations... during them, you'll have a chance to do OB and NICU (hopefully)!! Just let your instructors know that you are very interested in these and they will most likely try to get you some clinical time there.
They're all so different and I think the best way to find out is to try them all yourself... I agree with the other girl, request OB and NICU, good luck!! Go with your heart, you'll know when you feel it's a good fit for you
