  4. New ER nurse...is there any hope for me?!?!

  7. Is anyone out there having such a hard time with WGU?
    E2NURSE, I don't start until 7/1, but if it's any comfort to you, Biochemistry is supposed to be a performance assessment class. So while you'll have material to read and learn, it doesn't sound...

    If I'm not mistaken, with 2 yrs of RN experience, you would be considered a Clinical Nurse II at a base of 28/hr I think. Depending on how the unit is structured, you could also be looking a shift...
