  1. VA Hospital
    Hello, I am also a May 2009 grad who's applied to the VA in Nashville. I have talked to nurses who worked at the VA in Nashville and in Denver and they love it, and they both said new grads...

  2. Where are the nursing jobs?
    Nashville is LEAN right now. We are all struggling to find jobs (stupid economy!) We have a professor who is very knowledgeable about the job market nationally, and she tells us that things look...

  3. Question for the Nashville RNs out there.
    I have to add to Sunshine1879, I am also a new May grad, and yes, there is a dearth of jobs right now. Centennial and Vanderbilt are done hiring their new grads for the summer, and St. Thomas has...

  4. Need to know pay rates for Nashville area
    Hi there, I am a new grad, so the pay rates I've been hearing on the low end. Vanderbilt pays $18.50 base, and they are the lowest paying hospital. I have a nursing friend who worked in the...

  5. New drug 'can kill MRSA superbug'
    I hope it works, but it seems suspicious to me. After all, how is a nasal gel going to treat a bloodborne infection? It's absolutely true that MRSA is in nasal carriages (especially of hospital...

    Just to add to the rumor mill--a classmate of mine works at Vanderbilt as well, and informed me that all the nurses there just got a $3/hr raise, so starting pay would be $20.50. Vandy does have...

  7. BSN programs with a another bach degree
    I didn't see where in TN you are. If you're in the nashville area, Belmont U has an accelerated program. It's one year + one semester, and you take classes in the summer. They only accept students...

  8. Finish A&P in the summer?
    Metro has A&P one or two in the summer--but it's really way too much info to do in one semester. I took MicroBiology in the summer--and let me warn you, science classes will kick your butt...

  9. Denver School of Nursing--BSN experience
    Hey everyone, Here's some more news about credits being transferred. The school I'm going to in Tennessee (I just found out today that I was accepted!) lauded DSN as a "great school" and said...

  10. Accuplacer test @ DSON?
    NO they don't. You do have to take a pre and post math test to get into Pharmacy Calculations. Review fractions, decimals, roman numerals, etc. Know how to add/subtract/multiply/divide and convert...

  11. Anybody work in Winter Park or near ski resorts?
    As a Colorado native, I should warn you that all the ski towns have a fairly high cost of living. Avoid Aspen, it's the worst, because that's where all the celebs go. Lots of people live in...

  12. Looking for LPN school in Colorado
    I think they just started. My class was the first "added" class, and that was in Oct. DSN decided not to have an LPN program, and to focus on the RN and BSN programs instead.

  13. Looking for LPN school in Colorado
    Since their enrollment is always open, the waitlist is per semester. I was #34 on the list and got in that semester. DSN does not have more than a 3-6 month wait at most, and probably not even that...

  14. Looking for LPN school in Colorado
    Er..um...I'm not sure. I had some pre-reqs that were being completed that semester. I would e-mail Jeff Johnson (j.johnson@denverschoolofnursing.org) and ask, or call him. He's the director of...

  15. Looking for LPN school in Colorado
    DSN doesn't have enrollment deadlines per se. You apply for the quarter you want, and if it's full (and you don't make it off the waitlist), you'll be automatically enrolled in the following...

  16. Denver School of Nursing--BSN experience
    DSN has open enrollment, so it's more of a waitlist thing. If you'd applied now, they'd probably stick you on the waitlist for Oct (but maybe not if the class isn't full), and then if you didn't get...

  17. any colorado lpn programs w/ no pre reqs?
    Emily Griffith has a 1 year program, and I think you can take all your pre-reqs through them (there's about one semester's worth.) My mother did the program with SIX children at home, and she said...

  18. Denver School of Nursing--BSN experience
    When a school is in the process of accreditation, they are not allowed to publish the status (it's dumb, but those are the rules. They're REALLY not allowed to talk about it.) The school is only...

    The first semester was very tough. Again, I would encourage my classmates to post and discuss later quarters and their experiences. The waitlist is very short--DSN now is enrolled BSN students...
