After lurking on this forum for the past year, I am absolutely thrilled to say that I will be joining your ranks!
I graduated a few weeks ago and just found out that I landed my DREAM JOB in a Level III NICU! I could not be more excited!!!
I would think an incompetent nurse would be worse than a "fat nurse"...
Ok, I'm sure that title made you want to throw up in your mouth. I don't blame you. I felt the same way when my physician said it to ME.In January, I decided to take control my life and lose weight. I have lost about 30lbs so far. So, when I went to my doctor last week, he noticed that I was 30lbs lighter. He asked if I was on a diet and I told him yes. I told him I was going to nursing school and want to be a good example if I'm going to lecture on proper diet and exercise.I guess my statement gave him a green light to be an a-hole.Doctor: that is so refreshing to hear! Nurses are notorious for ignoring their health. Keep up the good work. Remember, THERE'S NOTHING WORSE THAN A FAT NURSE! ::::doctor laughs::::I was in shock. I could not believe it. I went numb. I did not find what he said funny or supportive. Yeah... I'm actively searching for a NP to be my primary care provider.... I happen to like NP's better. I find them to be less socially retarded.What's the general consensus on obese nurses? Are obese nurses not taken seriously? Is what my doctor said a common thought?
I KNEW nurses were aliens. With that language they speak, working long hours, juggling difficult patient assignments, and still able to provide TLC, there was NO WAY they were human.
"I guess the saying is true that it takes a certain type of person to be a nurse."
Ruby, this should be required reading before applying to nursing school! Wonderful article.

No offense,In a profession such as nursing..Being employed at "ghetto" healthcare facility is irrelevant.Nursing is a people oriented profession,which means nurses should actual prefer settings where there is a great NEED. This is just my opinion.
my littman is the best!
light blue color and teardrop-shaped!
I'm new to this site, but have for a while kinda been following after google search brought me here when applying. First off, Congrats to everyone who has been accepted thus far!! I recently sent in my deposit and intent to enroll form, so I'm also getting anxious...you all seem like a great group of people, and I can't wait to work with you all throughout this process. I believe some one asked a while back about Loyola taking recent grads after completing nursing school. I know for a fact that they do. I did my undergraduate at Loyola (Biology, graduated in May 2011) and I know of many nursing students (my g/f was a nursing student there as well) who are currently working in several areas at Loyola Medical Center. I know that the regular BSN pass rate dropped a little last year (from what I hear for the first time in a while) but they keep quiet about it. I have seen some of the BSN students and the ABSN students around campus - It dont by any means look easy, but successful completion is, without a doubt, possible. Anyways, hopefully I get to meet all of you within the next couple months!
@RickyLatino87- I'm sure you will get your letter back just as fast too:-)! Can't wait for u to get the good news so we can celebrate with you too!!!
Yes, I'm sticking with Loyola...paid my deposit the same day I got my letter. I started an app for Resurrection, but the soonest available date to take the TEAs test was 3 weeks after the deadline! I got really annoyed that they accepted my application payment without telling me that I was pretty much too late. Also, if Loyola didn't work out, I was preparing an app for Rush's GEM program next spring. I hope you get your answer soon, too!
Accelerated BSN students are eligible. I called before the cycle began to be sure.
Congratulations to all who got accepted in the program.
Good luck guys!!!
