    Why not a different type of nursing? it sounds like you could use your skills in community nursing

    I was in the program without a connection to the directors. Not having cna experience (or at least some experience) will make it very very difficult to get in to the program. I had to apply two times as did many of my classmates. It's a very competitive program which is why it's hard to get in. when I met my classmates i kind of thought "why did they pick me? " Most had incredible backgrounds. It is a fabulous program that will definitely prepare you to be a nurse. Good luck to you all. Just know that you might have to apply more than once, and that shouldn't discourage you. just figure out where you application was weak and strengthen it. For me i wasn't even considered the first time because i wasn't going to have all my classes done by a certain point and because they had so many qualified people it was one of the eliminators. also i didn't have a reference regarding my cna work...got those taken care of and got in.

    I am getting my master's but our program is in the works to phase out their MSN program and many others have followed suit. It is just a suggestion but basically it will eventually become mandated because that is all that will exist. The program i am has the ADN bridge program. if you think undergrad is stressful.............wait until you hit graduate. if you can get your bachelor through an online program and work for a few years just to relax and get experience it will serve you well. you want to come in with a little bit of background. we have some newbies that went straight on and they are doing fine....but not having those nursing 'life' experiences does make it a little harder. i would say 3 to 5 years is ideal at minimum. good luck!

    you will always have clinicals that are pretty time consuming. most programs offer some of their nursing classes online but again the most time consuming thing is the clinicals. good luck.

    That isn't why they fired you .......that is just the legal reason they gave. ...................sorry. I would try to figure out what really 'didn't' go right and for sure leave it off your resume.

    I am 16 weeks pregnant ...it's not to bad. I make taking breaks a priority right now where before i would work through for patient's sake...... i occasionally still puke but i have some control and can get to a private bathroom far away for patient care. this is my 2nd pregnancy as a nurse. and it honestly is not that bad.

    At our work place elective medical procedures have to be discussed with the manager before scheduling. for instance a co-worker needed bunion surgery and they had her wait until after summer to have it done.

    That almost sounds like it could be construed as a form of discriminatory practice. would they do that if you were a man and were married? where i work now in three years i have been there no one has ever been called off because when there is a low census there is a plethora of people volunteering to be called off. but at my previous job we all took turns. when you date was up you were called off ...sometimes it happened as often as every two weeks. really stunk.

    We are thinking of getting an Au pair for our 4 children.....but I believe that is a federal rule for the 10 hours. Its been on every site i have looked on. I'm married so it's not a huge deal for us. We only need someone about 20 hours a week but my friend paid 18 thousand for part-time child care last year for 2 kids...... so i figure why not have full time lined up for the same price.
