  1. Thinking of picking up a minor?
    I was thinking of saying that! :D OP, I think what StudentofHealing said is spot on. In fact, the only people in my class who had a job advantage were the ones who already were working in...

  2. Thinking of picking up a minor?
    To be completely honest, my minor didn't help me a whole lot. It shows you are a well rounded person and MAY give you an edge with a skill or a specialty, but it doesn't actually qualify you for...

  3. Nclex in 5days. What to do?
    Anything you study now will not show up on the test...guaranteed. :) You can look over simple memorization things if you want, or practice some more questions. Don't study too much though, and give...

  5. Need Advice on Clinical Instructor
    I experienced this too, and like others have said, it's a good thing. This is what I did: Ask your clinical instructor if there is a time you can talk to her for a few minutes, and then ask her about...

  6. How MANY shoes do you use for work?
    Hi, everyone. I've seen a lot of threads about what the best shoes are, but I was wondering how MANY you own for your job. Do you switch shoes on different days...maybe even mid shift? I was thinking...

  7. Scrubs for a tiny girl with a J Lo booty
    I too have trouble finding my size in stores so I have to order online. I order through Scrubs and Beyond and get free shipping for spending over a certain amount, and return anything that doesn't...

  8. Pending NJ License
    Keep calling them, and keep a record of who you spoke to. Also look at the checklist online (you can see it when you log on to the BON website) so when you call YOU can tell THEM what items are still...

  10. Scrubs for a tiny girl with a J Lo booty
    I can't be of much help in the booty area, but I also swim in most XS tops. The only tops that are fitted enough for me are the Grey's Anatomy in XS. Everything else looks huge even in XS. I'm 5'2'',...

  11. Grey's Anatomy Scrubs- how to keep in good condition?
    I have been wearing mine for 2 years and they have not shrunk or faded. They're excellent quality and definitely work the price. I will never wear another brand. One thing I do to keep them good as...

  12. Should I work while in school?
    Recent grad here. The ONLY students in my class working in hospitals right now are those who worked there while in school. They got great orientations and love their jobs. Those who did not work are...

  13. Should a student nurse take ACLS?
    I took it over winter break before my last semester and did fine. If you can do it, go ahead. I'm not sure whether it helped my job search, but it shows initiative.

    I'm a recent Philly grad and all of the applications I have filled out require your PA license number. I know of one person who applied to doctor's offices without a license number, but most any...

  15. NJ Board of Nursing - What the Heck?
    Sorry to hear that. I've heard that people who only need board approval have had success by driving up to Newark. You can also apply for PA reciprocity if you live near the boarder, since their...

  17. 1st Nursing job, seeking some advice
    I felt the same way in nursing school. I also once tried to shadow a nurse to see what she does, how she organizes her day, and assess her patients with her, and was told by my INSTRUCTOR that I...

  18. First job hunting blues
    Two months is not very long to be looking. Those who already have jobs in healthcare will naturally find jobs faster since they may transition to an RN position in their present company or have more...

    Thank you so much for your replies! I'm not sure what area of nursing I want to go into, so I would like a first job that will give me the widest variety of opportunities. That may be in med-surg or...

    Hi, everyone. I worked in a hospital throughout nursing school and can now choose to intern on either the med-surg, telemetry or rehab floor and will most likely be hired on the same floor. Which do...

  21. Getting around auto rejection application by lying??
    I wrote "license pending NCLEX" on mine in place of the license number. Didn't get any calls though. I would suggest just planning where you're going to apply and solidifying your resume and cover...

  23. NJ Board of Nursing - What the Heck?
    Yes and keep in mind the previous poster is speaking of getting an initial license in NJ, not endorsement. Nurses apply for endorsement year around so I doubt it's affected much by graduation date....

  24. NJ Board of Nursing - What the Heck?
    You can call the NJ BON directly and they'll give you a better idea of the time frame. I'm sure you can call NY BON as well. They're probably faster than NJ. I can tell you that no matter what you do...
