    with our current 13% unemployment rate.
    13% unemployment rate won't scare the U of M BSN student. I just moved from Michigan to Connecticut. Michigan peaked at over 15%. At least we lead the nation in something!

    I am almost 100% sure that all you need is 2 written references from clinical instructors. Almost certain...

    Good luck.

    You need two letters of recommendation from professors/clinical instructors and a letter of recommendation from your clinical/department manager. It would be nice if you could get the two letters from clinical areas that are really relevant to the unit your trying to work on if that is possible or from clinical professors who are in the same area of specialty of interest. In my case I am trying to apply for the Pediatric ER where I work now so I am getting clinical letters of recommendation from my Maternity Professor (a NICU Nurse Practitioner) and from my Psych. Professor (a Peds. Psych. Clinical Nurse Specialist) both of which are positions that I am really interested in and might ultimately want to pursue.

    Yikes that is awful. Not trying to scare anyone.... I am actually the one who is terrified of not getting a job, after all of this work.

    I applied to the PICU, then to the ED, then to the PACU. I'd love to recover patients, I think that'd be awesome- but my heart lies with the kiddos, pediatrics is where its at! I had the most difficult time chosing my top three. What areas did you choose?

    I freaked out a bit the other day because I got a letter in the mail from them, so I though I got rejected already but it turns out it was just a letter from Andrea Mansmann saying she is reviewin my application! *PHEW!*

    So it is now May. The letter I received said that we would hear by the end of the month. I guess I wasn't chosen?

    Does anyone know if they plan on calling those who were chosen, or do they email or snail mail out the responses.

    So sad....
    Guess its time for me to apply to even MORE rehabilitation centers in massachusetts that dont even want me because I dont have ANY experience!!

    riagomez<-----REJECTED. OUCH. I knew it was going to be tough, but I guess it just wasn't ment to me.
    Everything happens for a reason. I live life to this rule and hold it to be true for everything, no matter how crappy the situation is!

    Better luck next time I guess...
