    I don't know what the difference in an NA and a CNA is. If this facility is willing to train you, they probably don't expect you to have much experience.
    But your real-life experience is certainly equivalent to the duties of a CNA, so that should show them you are at least willing to do those tasks and learn more as well. Good luck!

    I'm a fan of Old Navy's Perfect Tanks. I love the way they fit! They're tight enough under my scrub tops that they aren't bulky, don't need to be adjusted much, and are plenty long enough to keep my lower back from hanging out when I bend over. You could easily tuck them in as well. Good luck!

    I think I generally waited about a week after my interview to call and say, "Hi, this is Letsgomets31. I interviewed with you on this date for this position, and I just wanted to follow up and see if you have any more information at this time." I feel like it shows you are really interested and motivated to get the job, so you will probably be a motivated worker when they hire you. I find that usually I would get a response along the lines of, "We'll contact you by this date." If that date came and went with no news, if get in touch with them again. "Just wanted to follow up" is my favorite phrase. I feel like it shows interest without demanding an answer. Maybe there are recruiters out there who would disagree, but hey - I'm employed! Good luck!

    I can't comment about the Shepherd Center specifically (except to say I know they do amazing work), but I think you should call the recruiter to follow up. I've gotten a few jobs over other candidates because I continued to follow up and really show interest in the position. There is a way to do it without going overboard, while still showing interest. Good luck with everything!

    True. The contingency was only offered to the few ADNs that were hired - which means only people who were already working there as techs.

    I got a position at a hospital with the condition that I get my BSN later. I had also been working at this faculty during school. Some of my classmates were able to get hospital positions with no conditions. It depends on the hospital system.

    I am pretty sure I work for the organization in question, based on the OP's previous posts. Yes, you will be automatically rejected until you can retest. We hired a bunch of new staff recently, and our manager reminded us in staff meetings that if we wanted to refer someone, they HAD to pass that assessment, or their application would automatically be rejected. I had to take it too, it's no fun! Best of luck to you next time!

    I worked there as a secretary and a tech while I was in school.

    I wonder if we work at the same facility. My facility just instituted this policy as well. I took the flu shot, but don't usually, and really don't want to continue to do so every year! Several of my coworkers feel "bullied" as well and are looking into finding ways around it...management is claiming it's a new Joint Commission standard!?

    Hi everyone,
    I've been working in a busy ER/ level 2 trauma center for about 2.5 years add a secretary and tech. I start in a couple of weeks as a new grad RN (yay!). I'm very excited, but also nervous. In all of my clinical rotations, the nurses had some sort of sheet they had devised to take report, keep track of meds, vitals, and anything else the pt would need. Of course none of these rotations were in an ER setting, where you will have new patients all the time. I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips for organizing this information and keeping track of these things in an ER-friendly fashion? Thanks in advance.

    Maybe try Koi? They seem to be made of a thicker material, and run a bit smaller than other brands IMO.

    If you think you want to work ER, try to get a job in one as a tech while you're in nursing school. You'll either conquer you're fears or realize that it isn't for you and find something else. Good luck!

    I would say drowsiness. To me, a change in mentation is more concerning than the other options. I feel like nausea and diarrhea are unpleasant, but often expected, SEs of abx. Dizziness is concerning as well, but if I had to choose, I'd say drowsiness as number one.
