  4. Review centers vs Self review
    I believe this is highly dependent on the person. I did very well in school and opted to skip formal and costly reviews - passed NCLEX on the first attempt in 75 questions. I have also taken...

    I can't remember which service I used, but I hired a professional resume writer about 4 years ago. Worst money I've ever spent. The finished product didn't follow the principles of even the most...

  7. LPN to RN to RN-BSN?
    If your goal is OR nursing, don't waste your time and money with LPN. LPNs are rarely (if ever) used in the OR. Go straight for RN, preferably BSN given the competitive market for new grad RNs. Best...

    Job market for a new grad or experienced nurse? If you are looking as a new grad, expect slim picking everywhere. You will have a greater chance picking up a new grad position in rural areas (if...

    This is the reality of the job market in STL: http://allnurses.com/nursing-first-job/help-new-grad-901536.html My best advice is to look at rural hospitals or non-acute settings. It was said that...

  14. L&D nursing an NICU
    Yes, it's possible! I started as a new grad in L&D - after my first year, I was cross-trained to float to our NICU to take stable grower/feeder assignments. This is how I discovered my love of NICU...

  15. UMSL vs Chamberlain
    That is where Chamberlain gets their students - those that don't want to wait. You'll get into Chamberlain right away, but it will cost you WAY more than a traditional school. Chamberlain is owned by...

  19. Vatterott College Medical Assistant Program
    Don't do it. Paying $30,000 for a "degree" to land a job that has no formal education requirement beyond a high school diploma where the average pay is $13/hr? no way. I paid $30,000 for my entire...
