I was in the same boat a couple years ago. My bf was in CA while I was in school in Louisiana. Since I knew for sure I was moving after graduation, I applied directly to the CA BRN and took NCLEX there. After applying & applying, I finally landed a job in the ER.
I was in the same boat as you a couple years ago. Fresh new grad from Louisiana moving to California and starting my career. Let me tell you, it was brutal! I graduated in May '12, got licensed here in CA in July '12, and didn't start my first job til March '13. In the end it all worked out & I can't say that I regret the way I did things, but those 9 months of job searching was very trying! Good luck!
Idk if they still have it, but when I was in nursing school a couple years ago I was in the nurse tech program at Ochsner and loved it! Check their website. I remember the application period being sometime in either January or February. Good luck with your search!
As an LSUHSC nursing graduate, my best advice is to be as patient as possible. The process can be very slow. And the timelines definitely vary so I'd keep that in mind. Good luck though guys! It's a very good school. My graduating class had a 98% NCLEX pass rate!
Wow! Talk about a surprise ending lol In your defense, I too would have never thought to ask which Army.
Such a sweet story!
It used to be free, but now it's $10 like she said. You can find the "course" on the American Stroke Association website. Hope that helps!
Hello everyone, I took my NCLEX RN exam on February 6th at 1:00pm. I did the PVT ( Pearson vue trick) and got the good pop up message. I've done this daily, I'm anxious for my results. It's taking the CA BON so long. Has anyone taking the exam this year in CA, and found out they passed? How long did it take you?
I applied, but have since accepted a position somewhere else.
- Once you accepted a job offer, that starting rate will be the base of your whole career. (If you start at $30, you can only get a raise of 0.25% to 1.5%/yearly)
I too am officially an alumna lol Just accepted a position in the ED Beyond excited & super blessed!
New grad ER nurse here too! Just received the job offer today actually. Sooo excited!!
I personally used Kaplan only. I found it to be very helpful. I passed NCLEX last July with 75 questions on my first try
Just spoke with HR and the lady I spoke to said that at this present time, the program has been cancelled with no tentative start date or further information. She said that emails notifying everyone will be going out some time this week.
