    Linfield has changed their curriculum and increased their clinical hours. I graduated in December 2011 and all of the students starting Fall 2011 and afterwards are using the new curriculum and...

  4. ITT Tech's New Program???
    Wow, really? That's pretty incredible to me. What hospital is this? I graduated in December 2011 and the majority of my cohort members have not been able to find jobs. We're all second degree...

  6. So how's the job market NOW?

  8. So how's the job market NOW?
    I will also say that nurses have far more responsibility and accountability than I realized when I first went into nursing school. For example, we are the patient's last defense when it comes to...

  9. So how's the job market NOW?
    Yes, I think we all have the romantic notion that we're going to be proficient nurses when we graduate. But that's not the case... and hospitals know it and don't expect us to be. Every nurse knows...

  10. So how's the job market NOW?
    Agreed. New grads are expensive to train and the hospitals want to make sure that we're not going to jump ship once the going gets tough or a "better offer" comes along.

    Oh, we didn't start giving meds until Spring term (Mother-Baby/Chronic care), either. We'd been in school for almost 8 months when we were finally allowed to start giving some shots and medications...

    There are jobs for experienced nurses who are looking for work, but not for new grads. Many of my cohort members and I are absolutely perplexed because we can't even get interviews in the hospitals,...

  16. So how's the job market NOW?
    I definitely would have preferred a stronger focus on med-surg, pharmacology and pathophysiology. I felt that Linfield had too much focus on community healthcare.

  17. So how's the job market NOW?
    I was concerned about what I read in the forum, too, regarding Linfield's lack of clinical hours. I toured the school and asked the student who was giving the tour what her opinion was. She told me...

  18. So how's the job market NOW?
    Hmm... that Lund report has to be wrong. Multiple sources within the Legacy system told me that the layoffs were actually 400 FTE positions, not just 400 employees. Most nurses work .9 FTE because...

    Well, as a new BSN grad in a market that has NO jobs for new grads - even BSN's, I would encourage the BSN. But, maybe you live in a better place where the market isn't so tight. (One of the big...
