    I've been in 3 hospital systems in WA that use EDIE (employed at 2 different ones, an interview at another). For those that don't know (maybe from out of state), the hospital can choose to either get...

  4. How many Nurses had their CNAs before Nursing School?
    I went to school in Idaho. One school required a CNA for entry, but the others did not. I obtained my CNA in high school (senior year) and I think working as a CNA prepared me for nursing more than...

  6. ATI Comprehensive Predictor as a benchmark for the NCLEX...?
    I graduate in 2 weeks from my ADN (RN) program and want to take the NCLEX just as soon as possible thereafter. Our school uses ATI testing (atitesting.com) as a benchmark; I hear many schools use...

  8. New grad LPN: wondering about job prospects and wages
    Wow, that's amazing! In my area (in Idaho), new-grad RNs are only making $20-$21/hr. I think LPNs here make $14-$16/hr. Glad I'm moving to WA :)

  10. Moving to Idaho?
    I work for St. Luke's Health System and I hear mixed feelings on working for St. Luke's vs Saint Al's. I have friends who got hired on with Saint Alphonsaus in Nampa at $26/hr as a new grad RN. I...

  11. Idaho Falls Blackfoot or Pocatello
    What kind of special needs are you talking about? Idaho Falls has a bigger medical community, so if your child has special needs that require a neurologist or peds specialist, I would try Idaho...

    Aurora, I'm sorry they required you to join. I feel that is more of a disservice than anything. I think schools should be educating students about the importance of volunteer work and activism, but...

  18. Are you a member of the NSNA?
    I think that forcing students to join is just wrong. It puts a sour taste in their mouth and encourages them to be negative about the club, nursing organizations and service learning projects. I...

    I would be lying if I said I didn't take money into consideration when going this route. It was, in fact, a major factor. And security is another major factor. And diversity. But that's also part of...

    I'm new to this arena, so please help me understand. Is the ANA an organization for only RNs? It seems to me like LPN/LVNs and RNs are splitting off into two separate disciplines, but that's mostly...
