  1. Took the TEAS today! What are my chances?
    Each school is different so it is honestly impossible to say. Some schools go based on GPA, others TEAS, others a combo of both. It also depends on how many students apply. Good luck with getting in.

  2. Why do some States keep making LPN/LVN's prove themselves over and over!!!
    Exactly. Don't complain too much or they'll think of a new rule or requirement that costs big $$$. It's ridiculous.

  3. A Few Words to the Wise
    I'm sorry you are going through this. I cannot believe that after you obtain the education they required now they still won't hire you for a position. Is this a LTC facility? I know many employers...

  5. Anti-vax nurses? Are you serious?
    If you do a little research on here you will see just how many healthcare providers limit/all out refuse vaccines for their children. I often just don't comment on the threads as the ignorance is...

    It NEVER hurts to get your foot in the door. Some positions are for internal candidates only, so you might be able to get in that way. Good luck and keep applying. Even if you start in LTC as an aide...

    I can understand your frustration. Nursing school in general seems like a never ending series of hoops you have to jump through. I don't think your school's policy will change, but that doesn't mean...

  8. Go-to Sites for Patient Education Pamphlets?
    CDC.gov has some. It takes some scouting if I recall right, but they had a variety of FREE resources you could order. So it is worth it.
