  1. Moving to Minneapolis, need suggestions!
    Suburbanite here... Personally I enjoy living outside the city in a southern suburb so I will give you my opinion. Houses are cheap. The downside to that is having to commute in to the city. I work...

  2. Textbooks for first semester of MANE program
    This might be too late for you, but when I was in nursing school I just bought one edition older of each book. It worked for me. The page numbers didn't line up (there is rarely new information in...

  3. Inver Hills Nursing Program
    Literally work as hard as you can. If you struggle on the first exam then start going to the teachers for help. Don't wait till the end of the semester where you have to get a 95% on an exam to pass...

  4. Inver Hills Nursing Program
    Yep, that's exactly the Saunders book I meant. It's tough because they expect a lot of you. And it's hard to know what to study and how to study. You need to know the content and then be able to...

  5. Advice needed for admission to the University of MN Entry level masters degree
    I don't have any advice specifically about U of MN but I did have a similar experience. When I was looking into schools three years ago I called them and wanted to get some information. They were not...

  6. Inver Hills Nursing Program
    I'm graduating this May from Inver's program. It's tough. My best advice is to try to focus just on school. If you have a job be willing to cut back on hours. If you have kids be prepared not to see...

  10. Normandale Nursing Application Decision
    Feb 1st. That was 2 years ago now! It was seriously the hardest wait ever. I think it's best to just keep telling yourself you won't hear until April so you aren't disappointed every day you don't...

  11. Normandale Nursing Application Decision
    Elizabeth- If it's anything like Inver's process I definitely wouldn't hold my breath about knowing before April 13th and be prepared for it to possibly take a little longer than that. They told...

  12. Soon-to-be St. Cloud new grad-need advice
    The only advice I can give you (I graduate in May as well) is that getting a job in the ED straight out of school is unlikely. Usually areas like ED, ICU, etc where nurses have to be very quick on...

  15. Moving back to Minnesota
    Kristiesin- It wouldn't hurt to throw your name in at Inver as well. It is so competitive here to get into schools the more you get your name out the better. Also I don't know if this is possible...

  16. Textbooks?  E-books?
    If you are looking for the cheapest way simply buy older editions of the books. I wish I had done this and spend less than $100 instead of over $500 (and I bought used books online, buying them from...

  17. What did you take to orientation?
    I wouldn't stress about it too much. I'd bring a water bottle, pen and paper, and a lunch. I would not recommend buying your books at the school's bookstore. I saved over $300 ($500 instead of over...

  19. What to do in the mean time of not getting accepted into RN program?
    That's a hard question. Like I have said earlier in prior posts the St. Kates program is probably the "easiest" program to get into. If you are willing to spend the money you can most likely get in...

  21. Anyone know where to get free CNA training in Minnesota?
    I have heard any facility that accepts money from medicaid is obligated to pay you for your CNA training. I worked at a nursing home in Farmington and got paid for my CNA course after 6 weeks of...

  23. St. Kate's worth the cost?
    The benefit in going to St. Kates is the fact you can get directly into the program. Is it better than Century or Inver? Actually Inver and Century's NCLEX pass rates are much higher than St. Kates....

  24. Got my letter-century college- alternate list????????
    Exactly Feistn, I think that's what happened last year. Like I said a girl that was in the 20s on the wait list was accepted in last Fall, with everyone applying to multiple schools you never know!
