  6. Choosing a preceptorship

  9. What's wrong with my resume?
    Actually, I am pretty sure that if you are working already as an R.N. after you finish your license, then you put work before education. After awhile people are more interested in where you worked...

  10. What the chances are for a new grad with a English as Second language to get hired?
    Also keep in mind that if English isnt your first language, presumably you are bilingual, which, depending where you live can be a HUGE plus. Play that up-let them know that you are fluent verbally...

  12. Recruiter hasn't called me back =(
    Just a thought...when you call every day or whatever DONT leave a message. If she picks up, great, if not....leaving a bunch of messages that have the same content will seem a little odd. You left...

  15. Question to all Nurse Recruiters/Hiring Nurse Managers out there
    This isn't actually a plea for jobs (although sometimes I think that might be just as effective as what I have been doing so far ;)) but more of a procedural question... I am a new graduate living...

  16. ADN or BSN?
    I guess it depends where you want to work. I live in NY and it seems that all my friends with ADNs are going back to school for their BSN before they can get jobs. Which means that my 4 year BSN took...

  20. First day of Nursing School..
    Wow. Amazed . The OP is excited, he or she figure out a balance soon by themselves, and you just pretty much ruined the first day excitement for no good reason.
