    Hey @XoXoNewNurse, (hoping you get this notification)...

    My husband suggested I do the same thing you did, drop off my resume personally to the unit that is hiring. I like the tip you shared of calling a manager ahead of time. Did you just call them and tell them you were going in to drop of a resume or how exactly did you tell them. I'm so shy I wouldn't know what to say.
    if you did this in the metro NY area you would risk being barred from hire. Many hospitals have HR off site for a variety of reasons. If you showed up for anything other than work or visiting you would be directed by the security guard to the computer kiosk to apply online. If you showed up to the offsite HR dept unannounced you would likely not get past the reception desk. I've witnessed the latter scenario several times when I did temp work in the corporate HR office of a major regional healthcare system years back. It was sad to watch eager new grads follow advice from well meaning friends that don't live in the area and as such aren't aware of the additional security needed/utilized. The other reason is theinitial applications are screened blindly to reduce the risk of prejudice & discrimination. Only credentials and education are reviewed vs the job description hence the importance of proper key word use in resumes and individualizing resumes for the job.

    Hold means just that there is a QA/QC audit for some reason. Neither quick results nor BoN updating will occur until the hold is listed. (PVT won't work either)Results on hold are usually 24-72 depending on reason. Palm scan issues are ~48hrs. Testing quickly, power issues, other incidents 48-72hrs. More egregious issues such as leaving the building, accessing a cell phone or study materials will take longer, but you will know if you are in one of those scenarios.

    I tested on Thursday and had results on Saturday.

    You can't. Canada is a different country.

    You determine if elgible to immigrate. Determine which province you will relocate to (most have minimal opportunities for nurses due to funding and economics). Review the requirements of the college of nurses for the province. Apply to NNAS for your credentials you've assessed against the Canadian minimum competence and educational requirements for registered nurses. (Be aware this can take up to two years and is not cheap). Then depending if your nursing educational and licensing credentials are considered equivalent, somewhat equivalent, or not equivalent to Canadian standards you then apply to the provincial college of nursing as an international candidate for a nursing license. They will advise if you need to undergo competency assessments

    Having a TX license with no plans of living or working there is a huge expense. A TX license is invalid in Canada and has minimal impact on your credential assessment. Your entry to practice nursing education and licensing in your country of education plus recent paid work experience as a registered nurse are primary to determine eligibility.

    Your rant email may have dug your proverbial grave. Of course you calling colleagues of your advisor vindictive liars is going to be shared with administration. no email ever sent is ever private.

    Exactly what is the equal employment opportunity commission going to do about your actions and the school's response? A whole lot of nothing as EEO has nothing to do with students. You are targeted by your choices to challenge authority and school policy, losing twice now.

    Your poor choice of the last email definitely placed a major target on your back for a lack of professionalism.

    The college network is nothing more than a publishing company. They are not a school nor can they grant degrees. They are not affiliated with or endorsed. Y Excelsior.

    The study guides are (unauthorized) materials to prep for challenge exams likely from Excelsior. You are also responsible to meet the admission requirements of Excelsior and pay all of their tuition, fees, etc

    You are allowed to test for your LPN (NCLEX_PN) license after the first year of Nursing School. It is a different test and you do not have to know as much, you may do spectacularly. Though it does not pay as well as an RN, you will be working as a Nurse which will help with the next time you decide to take the NCLEX-RN.


    Only in certain states. It's not an option in NJ, PA, TX, OK and other states where only graduates of practical nursing programs are eligible for LPN licensure.

    You have definitely crossed the professional boundary line. The parents are okay with it...until they are not.

    Simply having a current client in your home can be grounds for termination and an ethics complaint with the BoN.

    Contact your agency corporate compliance officer or your supervisor.

    You Ms y get a warning and be removed from this case. You also need to be prepared for termination if zero tolerance for ethics violations as this can also affect payment from government sources. Nurses got warnings for giving expensive gifts to patients for birthdays and holidays when a "thankful" parent was uncomfortable enough to complain to management. I think each was shocked. We only know about it as the affected nurses told others.

    It appears that the opinion is based upon your work performance including chronic tardiness. Working 16hrs does not negate your tardiness That's based on fact not opinion or discrimination. Consult an attorney. But based upon what you posted you don't have a case for discrimination in employment

    Yes you must always report felony convictions. In some states you must report felony charges also.

    You need not a criminal defense attorney before you submit your plea but a nurse attorney experienced with the BRN in nursing license defense. The American Association of Nurse Attorneys has a lawyer referral service to help you find a qualified attorney in this specialized field. They can work in conjunction with your criminal defense attorney and the nurse attorney can help you turn yourself into the BRN

    I failed on my first attempt last February. Did the same procedure and led me to cc page and charged right away. So assumed that I failed, waited for my result and yeah I failed. But this one as I took my test last dec 2nd got home and did the trick. I got the pop up saying "the candidate has test result that are on hold and new registration cannot be created at this time" so as I was reading other people's experienced they said if u get that pop up it means you passed. But I tried again 12mn the next day and no more pop up and charged me $200 for the receipt. Now I'm freaking out if passed or failed.
    Read my response above. Hold = test audit

    I took my test the other day and got a pop up saying result on hold and new registration cannot process. After 24 hrs I tried again and got charges of $200, what is that?
    Hold meant your test was referred for a QA/QC audit and not an indication of pass or fail.

    When you tried again and offered $200 and it was accepted you paid for a 2nd/new registration. After 24 hrs, often this means you failed and are now your registration is paid for the next attempt. This is not a guarantee nor is this official. You will not have accurate results unless your state participates in quick results or your BoN posts/mails your status.

    So you now have another registration paid to take the NCLEX. You may have failed but won't know for certain until you receive official results.
