  2. Is it worth shooting for a top program?
    Over the long term since you mention an interest in specialized paths such as community health or research I can see a small benefit to a program like Penn - this will give you access to e.g., world...

  3. "prereqs" or "coreqs"?
    I think most people will take their coreqs ahead of time if it's at all possible. Nursing classes are demanding enough without the extra responsibility of keeping up with non-nursing coursework.

  5. ADN Degrees NOT welcome? {x-posted}
    There is a nursing shortage. It just doesn't mean what people think it means. i.e. People think nursing shortage means plenty of jobs for nurses but it does not necessarily mean this at all. Local...

  6. Am I admirably persistent or just delusional?
    Persistence is good but you should be applying elsewhere and hopefully you'll get hired and start getting some experience under your belt. To be honest you shouldn't be waitressing with a new license...

  7. What's your opinion
    It looks like a heavy course load to me. Do you have a job? I have a friend who once squeezed 20+ credits into one semester while working full time however that requires a lot of focus. If you don't...

  8. Would you cut your hair for your career?
    I don't recommend combing them out because this really thins the hair out to the point where it can take a year with repeat trims just to get hair back to where it stops looking like you had an...

  9. accelerated bsn program with few pre-reqs required, and no previous bsn
    I think OP may mean "previous Bachelor's degree". The one linked in the post by mschaz above does not require a previous Bachelor's degree but you do need 60 credit hours of core curriculum credits...

  10. Confused about what to do with my life!
    I don't see any reason why you can't apply to a pharm d program as long as your bsn includes the prereqs for the grad program. If you pursue chemistry and didn't get into a pharm d program you could...

  14. Scared I won't like nursing! Wondering if I should be a teacher instead.
    I agree. The internet magnifies and skews things. I recently had the opportunity to be in the thick of a situation and watch pros (nurses) do their thing. It was very impressive and I'll admit the...

  15. Nurses: which job would you take if you were desperate new grad?
    I don't understand why anyone with a license and RN job offers close to home would move to take the non nursing job that pays less. Is this a trick question?

  18. How do I go back into nursing when I haven't been practicing for awhile??
    While in Italy what I'd do is spend some time volunteering in some way or another to put some of my degree to use and broaden my personal knowledge. A lot of hiring managers will find any excuse to...
