    My ASN school graduates approx 100-120 new RNs a year and most of them have jobs lined up before graduation. The Dec 2012 graduating class all passed NCLEX the first time (which is typical for the school) and all have jobs already. It really helps that my school is hospital-affiliated so, even though it's "only" an ASN, we're the grads the system wants and we get priority over all other schools --including the 2 BSN schools in the area.

    What's it like being able to work whenever you want? I cannot wait to be a nurse. Working three days a week sounds like heaven. Although, knowing me, I'd most likely do tons of over time anyway lol. What do you like to do on your off days?
    We don't necessarily work "whenever we want". Yes, I get to submit my own schedule BUT that doesn't mean it won't get switched around depending on the unit's needs. I'm required to work 6 weekend shifts every 6 weeks. I'm required to work 24 hours of call every 6 weeks. I work 12 hour night shifts, which means I'm sleeping in the afternoon before my first shift, trying to sleep during the day in between shifts, and trying to make up for missed sleep the day after my last shift for the week. Not exactly heavenly but I love my job (I'm an LDRP RN) and my co-workers so I don't mind.

    Patient: I'm pregnant and I think I'm miscarrying!
    RN: How far along are you? (as she collects urine sample)
    Patient: 3-4 weeks. I haven't been tested yet but I know my body.
    RN: When was your last period?
    Patient: the 7th.
    RN: So...a month ago? (reads results from UPT -- negative). You're not pregnant. You're having your period.
    Patient's male companion: I'm outta here, *****!

    Patient brought by EMS for severe lower abdominal cramping.
    Patient: I started cramping and it felt like contractions so I got worried.
    RN: Any chance you're pregnant?
    Patient: No, I haven't had sex for 10 years. I just need something for menstrual cramps.

    Do you actually think that every nurse that you work with has perfect credit? No you cannot be denied a job due to the fact that you have bad credit, it is discriminatory. And just to let you know, I do get out alot. Prospective employers may check your credit, but does bad credit make you a bad nurse? Some people have circumstances that are out of their control that causes them to have bad credit not by their choice.
    You CAN be denied a job because of bad credit. If you have repossessions/collections or credit card(s) with a high balance and/or are overdue, they can choose not to hire you. I read that TSA won't hire someone with overdue debt of more than $5,000. A bill is trying to get passed that would not allow credit checks to be used for employment but currently only Hawaii and Washington prohibit credit checks.

    Who takes care of the babies when they arent with their mothers? Do the neonatal nurses only take care of sick babies? If so who takes care of the healthy ones?
    Mother/baby nurses take care of the babies, who room in with their moms. The only time healthy babies go to the nursery is for procedures like circumcisions.

    I'm an ADN grad in NC and have easily been hired at 2 different hospitals; both have magnet status. None of my classmates had any issues getting hired without a BSN.
