Hi AllNurses community! I have been searching for a thread for the UPMC Mercy Hospital Class of 2015, but alas; no such luck. Therefore, I created one! I was accepted to start in August 2013 and... Read More

    Has anyone tried to buy their books yet? I looked online to see if I could find e-books. I didn't have the best of luck.

    Hey guys....I got my scrubs!!! Lindsey...I bought my fundamentals( that came with a study guide) and my pharmacy book. I went to (helpineedbooks.com) you just put in the isbn number and it compares sites for you with different prices. I liked the site a lot because I had choices and usually the lowest price book was decent enough to buy. Has anyone bought the psych book yet. I was probably going to buy just the access code, I read somewhere that if you only buy that, that it has the downloadable text with it! Anyways, anyone let me know if u bought it yet. I can't believe we only have 32 days left! I'm getting really excited/nervous!

    I have a question for anyone currently at Mercy SON or recently graduated. Do you know of anyone who participated in the loan forgiveness program and graduated but was STILL unable to find a job that meets the requirements of the program, within the dictated time? It seems like a pretty sure bet that if you participate in the program, do well and graduate, and are not too picky that it will work out. But I'm still a little uneasy about it. Does anyone know from direct experience what the odds are that you could do everything right and have it still not work out?

    I think if they offer you a job after you pass your boards, you have to take it or pay back your loans. Not 100% sure on that though.

    Hi! I'm at Mercy now, and as it was explained to me, you have 3 months after graduation to accept a job offer with upmc...or you have to pay back the amount they "forgive" at a crazy high interest rate. You don't have to accept the first offer made, but you do have a 3 month time limit. Good luck!

    Thanks guys! Has anyone heard of anyone not finding a job within the 3 month time frame? I'm wondering what percentage of people who participate in the loan forgiveness program actually get hired. That might be hard to tell though.
