  1. Just accepted a new job... then my dream job called...
    If it's really your dream, I'd just quit the first job, but expect to be placed on the "do not rehire" list. Best of luck on your interview, and congrats on getting that first job!

  2. My Career options after graduation
    Sounds like a nice, relatively stress free job compared to the hospital. I assume you get benefits as well? I'd keep that public health job, they're hard to come by.

  3. Calling All First Year Med-Surg RN's!
    I'll be a month into orientation this weekend and I hate it. I was friends with my preceptor when I was a CNA and I thought it would be fantastic but she's just getting irritated with me at this...

  4. Pediatric Home Health as a New Grad?
    Thank you! I have started at a hospital and am working through my preceptorship there. There's no pediatric, NICU, or L&D unit at any of the local sister hospitals, which sucks, but I'm enjoying...

  5. Failed the CNA test on the first try
    I failed the first time too! The second time around I went over each and every skill and memorized them back and front. The second time I got much easier skills.

  6. RN's what was your occupation while in nursing school?
    When I was doing CNA training in Tennessee 2 of my preceptors were going for their CNA 2. The nursing home paid for their training. Are there programs like this in your area? If you can afford it,...

    Often times hospitals are required to post jobs online for open positions even when they know exactly who they are going to hire (usually an internal candidate). At one hospital system in the area,...

  9. Do you want to be jobless after nursing school? I didn't think so...
    Your CNA experience only changes your starting pay rate. It doesn't give you actual RN experience, you're still considered a new grad, but you get paid like you have some experience.

  10. Do you want to be jobless after nursing school? I didn't think so...
    Or you could just start working as a PCT/CNA right now. There are some hospitals that will give a year of RN experience for every 2 years of CNA experience and you could start off your hourly pay...

  11. Challenging the CNA exam in Florida
    I got dinged for dumping in the sink. I failed the first time because of catheter care. It was ridiculous. My brother failed his test because he forgot to set the scale to 0 before he weighed his...

  14. Should this new grad decline this job offer?
    I would wait to see what happens with the other interview. Did they say when they would get back with you? I actually turned down a job because it required me to travel 2 hours one way just for...

    What has your turn over rate been? Are you giving enough quality orientation? Is it really just this one nurse or multiple nurses who have done this? I've never not given notice, but there have been...

  20. Three 12's or 4 10's?
    I would kill to do 4 10's. I hate 12 hours shifts because, with the charting, they're not 12 hours! It's 13 or 14 hours (and I'm still talking CNA work!) If you don't really care about the...
