Who was your professor? is the final proctored, are notes allowed?
How was it??
I have been a RN on a medical floor for 1 year and just received a call for an interview for a cardiovascular ICU position! I am so, so excited, but oh so nervous! ICU has been my goal since nursing school, and the fact that it's in cardiovascular, I'm in love! It has always been my favorite subject and it is where I want to be. Does anyone have any interview questions that may be asked or any tips? I have no idea what to expect!
I would say that your cheapest bet would be to go to see ---- in the nursing lab. She sells used scrubs, I think for around $10 a piece. I bought mine from there. I'm in my first semester and have yet to use my white lab coat. I got all my scrubs for around $50, and it included 2 tops, 2 bottoms, and a lab coat, with the patches sewed on already. The brand doesn't matter as much as the color. It HAS to be the exact color. The program is super awesome so far. I'm really excited for med-surg!
Yeah it can add up for sure, I don't have insurance, but I used money i got from financial aid. I think I paid around $350 for all my shots, titers, physical, and drug screen. I did already have a few of the shots, so that saved a little money. I still have to buy my scrubs, steth, and shoes though; I'm expecting that to be another $300 lol.
It will all be woth it in the end!
I started in august, and if I remember correctly, the ACE stuff will only take a couple hours. It's nothing hard, just time consuming! And for anyone who hasn't gotten all the drug test and titer things done yet... I went to my regular doctor (although I do have health insurance) and asked if there was a way if they could bill all of this as part of my annual physical, and they did! Even the drug test. All I had to pay was the co-pay. Also, if you don't have health insurance, vaccinations through the health department are pretty cheap. (Tetanus shot $8 without health insurance). Good luck everyone!!
No I haven't done the ACE stuff yet, with three classes, work, and finishing all the other things we have to do before we start. I am waiting until my classes are done on the 16th before I tackle the ACE tests lol. What about you?
I start in January as well and have been taking classes this semester for my BSN too. I am taking my second English and Anthropology for my MACRO stamp. Plus I took my 2000 course phys-ed for the Nursing program.
Where are you hoping to get your BSN from?
Sorry, haven't been keeping up. Is anyone on this thread starting in January?? =)
Congratulations to everyone that got accepted! I was accepted as well and can't wait to start!
