I am a newly licensed BSN nurse from MI, trying to move to central/eastern MS. I have applied for about 40 jobs between Birmingham and Tuscaloosa (AL), and Columbus, Tupelo, Meridian, Oxford, and Starkville (MS).
Most of the people that I apply with will not even return my e-mails or calls. I am great with patients, and did fabulously in nursing school. Not being able to find a job is killing me! My fiance lives 7 in MS, about 15 minutes from the AL border. We won't live together until we're married (next fall), so I'm really looking for anything that is within a three-hour radius of him, at this point.
Does anyone have any tips/pointers? I would be SO appreciative of any help that y'all might be able to give me!
- 0Sep 1, '09 by sumrtimeI just applied today for the BSN program at USM-Hattiesburg. I applied with a 2.9 GPA and 24 ACT, so I'm really hoping my ACT score helps me get in. Has anyone graduated from USM? Heard anything about their program? I am sooo excited about starting nursing school, even though I've heard how time-consuming and difficult it is as opposed to just taking the pre-reqs...I'm sooo Ready!
Outside of school, I'm a personal care attendant for a man who is quadriplegic. I've done this type of work before when I was 18 (in Louisiana) and absolutely loved it. Every day, working with him...makes me more and more anxious to graduate and be able to care for people on so many other levels. I'm kinda excited about the experience I'm gaining now in this job because I administer his catheter (which he has done 3-4 times per day)...I also use a Hoyer lift to transfer him. I'm really hoping that this experience give me an edge in my future endeavors.
Anyways, I'm Summer and I live in Hattiesburg! Nice to meet ya'll!!

I don't mind telling you at all. I had a 24 on my act's and a 4.0, and I also had all prereq's including all academics out of the way. Good luck on getting in the program.
That's wonderful!! So you don't mind me asking for help when I start Mississippi Delta Community College's program next year?? LOL.
