    Who else is in? I've had some time off due to a funding snafu, so it's going to be interesting dealing with a class, a toddler, and working nights.

  7. Thinking of applying to Peds... questions
    I'm currently on an Ortho/Neuro unit at my hospital and have been for a little over a year. My ultimate goal is to move to post-partum, but that unit has VERY rare openings, so who knows how long it...

  8. 4540 or 4580 for end of pregnancy?
    I'm lucky in that I've only been out of school for about 1.5 years (May 2011) and we used APA for our papers then, but I have to say I'm NOT looking forward to having to use it for discussions, too. ...

  10. Why are there no nursing schools with built-in prerequisites?
    As others have said, they DO exist, though they may be harder to find. My program had them built in, so I was able to go from start-finish in 5 semesters. (The 5th one was for a couple of more...

  11. Fair Patient assignments
    We work a balance between acuity and #s. We pretty much get to pick our own patients on our assigned wing, which is nice. If we have some pts who are a higher acuity, they may go to the more...

    Yup, sure have. Part of why I switched careers (just was NOT happy in the other one). First thing to do is to talk to HR, and find out what information they release to people calling about you. I...

  15. How long to get ATT in IL?
    Small update from me... apparently I misread and they wanted the ED-NUR form dated on or after date of graduation, not program completion, so I have to submit a new one. So... new form sent to...

  16. How long to get ATT in IL?
    Did you graduate in IL, too? If so, that kinda throws the time-to-ATT off a bit, since I was wondering about the time for people from out of state schools to get their ATT when applying in IL.

  18. How to apply for IL NCLEX from out of state?
    Is there a reason you aren't just applying for an IL license by examination? (I mean, why go for the NY license if you know you're leaving NY soon?) I just graduated from a program in NY and...

    Sorry for the delay in reply! Yes, both of my interviews were over the phone. It feels odd to know I've never stepped foot in the hospital where I'll start work next month. :)
