I have ALOT of of questions somone help me - Page 2Register Today!
- Jan 16 by marycarneyAm I likely to get hired first because I'm a male??????
I don't even know where to go with that! WHY would you even think that? Imagine a candidate for a pharmacist (or lawyer, or WalMart cashier, or any other job except sperm donor) job asking that question.
- Jan 16 by Miiki SNI think that you need to go to nursing schools in your area and start asking questions, shadow a few nurses (call the volunteer office at a hospital, they probably can point you in the correct direction), and start doing some internet research.
Hiring trends, wages, and nursing school policies are hard to answer on an international forum where we don't know all that much about your situation.
I'd like to ask you to be polite to all of the posters even if you don't like what they say. Yes, you started this thread, but you don't own it. The administrators have the right to close, edit, delete or do whatever to it. All the previous posters did was point out that you have been posting many many threads.
After doing your research, try compiling all of your new questions, comments, and experience into one thread. People here are always willing to help.
- Jan 16 by DoeRNQuote from hiddencatRNI was defending myself since you wanted to blame someone. I said once again instead of him continuing to make post after post after post make one thread with questions. I just now saw how many new threads he made. And it was AFTER I made the original post. With my original post I only saw 4 threads that the OP made. And said oh wow he is asking a lot of questions maybe he should make one thread and ask questions instead of making more threads asking questions. And once again I didn't say to repost all his questions. Reread my ORIGINAL post. He did that on his own. So please if you want to cast blame make sure you have your facts straight.No, not really. How can OP post all questions in one new thread without reposting his questions? It's not the end of the world but I think it's also fair to OP to point out that the mega post of collected questions was not his idea.
And I'm sure I'm not the only one who would rather see one thread with new questions versus 30 threads from the same poster. And again we are here to help not to bicker. So I'm going to take my own advice and not say anything else to you. Think what you want but get the facts straight before you post about anything I do.

- Jan 16 by hiddencatRNGet my facts straight? Blame? My goodness, I was trying to give the OP a fair shot on this thread after he basically spammed the forum. I think it's fair to give credit where credit is due, and your recommendation to collect questions in to one post can easily be interpreted as reposting questions in one thread. Only mods can merge threads, so OP can't really collect his questions together any other way. You are reacting very strongly to this; when I have similar reactions that's when I know it's time to step away from the computer for a bit.
- Jan 16 by UVA Grad NursingI would recommend that the OP visit the schools that are closest to him/her. There are over 1200 accredited nursing programs in the US (plus dozens more that are not accredited). No two programs would have the same experiences (any many have different admissions requirements, clinical opportunities, graduation rates, and student satisfaction). Starting salaries will also vary greatly depending on where you work and in which type of setting.
Here in my own state of Virginia, the salary for new RN grads ranges from $14.50 to $29.75 per hour depending on where in the state you are working. Of course the cost of living in the city with the $14/hr rate is lower (a townhouse costs under $80,000) and in the other area a 1 BR basement apartment would be $1500/month.
- Jan 16 by jonesad71Since you are young I would recomend you take a CNA course and get a job as one. Being in that environment would give you a better perspective on if you want to enter the medical field.
- Jan 16 by Student Nurse_7Thank you
- Jan 17 by Blue Felt FedoraOP: I suggest, like the others, you investigate the nursing programs in your area. When you find a few that appeal to you, contact them and attend their Nursing Program Information Sessions. Many of the questions you ask were answered for me when I attended the Info Session at my school.
