  3. are correctional nurses allowed to wear knee-length skirts?
    The place I'm at requires you to wear scrubs. Even if they didn't, I definitely would not want to wear skirts. If the inmates made the rules, the answer would probably be yes LOL

  4. Importance of good grades!!!
    I agree- it NEVER hurts to get the A!! I worked very hard in nursing school and got a high GPA. It was also horrendously stressful for me, because I was in a Master's Entry program and they kick...

  5. Almost new grad who wants to work in psych--advice please!
    Of course you should try. I'm a new grad working in psych, and I work with other new grads. You should not have to start out in med-surg especially if that is not what you want to do. I will...

    It depends what state you decide to get your license. Some states may straight up deny your license or put stipulations on it. Others will be more lenient. I had three misdemeanor charges, and I...

  11. Tattoo question

  12. Poll: Post-NCLEX-RN, which question bank was the most "useful" for you?

  17. Good Cities / States to Find First RN Job
    I have heard it is hard to find a job in metro areas in general. :( Rural facilities may be more likely to hire nurses who do not have BSN. So you could move to one of your top choices and just be...

  18. Best NCLEX review book?
    SAUNDERS for sure. If you don't remember much from school it is good for touching up. I also like LaCharity's Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment- makes sense, because for each patient you...
