  1. Hospital Job
    I've walked in and dropped off my resume and cover letter to the assistant nurse manager twice. At the first hospital I did it at she told me they weren't hiring at that time but would be two months...

  2. Doing my first night shift EVER tonight!
    I think you'll be good! I usually never get really tired at work overnight even if I wasn't able to get a nap in that day. Plus you'll have your nerves and adrenaline to keep you awake. Goodluck! I'm...

  3. New Grad applicant walked on a unit today...
    I've personally walked onto different units with no prior warning twice. The first time I did it I felt so awkward and I was nervous but the ANM was very welcoming and nice. She told me that they had...

  4. Do You judge and treat patients differently depending on who they are ?
    I think it's human nature to judge. But part of being a nurse is how you deal with that judgment. As long as you treat everyone the same regardless of their name or any other attributes they may have...

  5. Interview questions: What do you ask?

  6. Help Help Help .. Failed NCLEX
    I used the Saunders 4th edition as well but the questions that they have in the back of each chapter are way easier and I felt that they were nothing like the questions they had on NCLEX. Make...

    What causes you to dread going to work in the ICU? If those things aren't present when you do L&D why worry about the feeling of dread. Also, there had to have been reasons why you originally wanted...

  8. New RN on the first job hunt
    When I stopped by the hospital to say hello, I gave them my cover letter, resume and a letter of recommendation that I had. Sure, they might not look at your cover letter but I think it's better to...

  10. Tumor Fevers
    This is just a wild guess but it's what I would think. I would believe the pathophysiology is the same for anything that would cause a fever. A fever is your body's way of trying to kill whatever is...

  11. 36 online applications and no bites?!
    Is it possible to go to the floor and personally hand somebody your resume? I've heard some people say to do that and others not to but what could it hurt? From the way it sounds you haven't heard...

  12. First Resume - Please Help!
    Because you are a new graduate and have no experience I would recommend trying to showcase what you've learned in school to the best of your abilities. Instead of having every clinical site listed...

  14. Nclex June 8th
    I went into the test not really expecting to get all 265 questions. I was hoping that it would stop at 75 and then when I went to 76 my heart sank a little. But it stopped me right after 76 thank...

    I personally couldn't tell if the questions were getting harder or not. Whenever I thought I got a question right I would almost hope I got a SATA question next because then I thought for sure I got...

  16. Nclex June 8th
    It was what i was expecting and then again it wasn't. I know that doesn't make a lot of sense but it's hard to put in words. Most of the questions I could get down to two answers that were incorrect...

    I used Saunders 5th edition and pretty much read it cover to cover. I also did some questions online from RN 3500 I believe. I found the link on here but I couldn't tell you exactly where. The...

    I just took the NCLEX-RN for the first time today. And even though it was a hard test I just wanted to let everyone know reading this that it's something that YOU can pass. I don't know for sure that...
