  11. Does nursing really suck that badly?
    I work on a surgical unit which is understaffed, crappy management etc. but I love my job. I love nursing and I love being a nurse. I'd do it for minimum wage. No regrets.

  13. Mohawk college Bridging to BScN
    You don't have any mohawk teachers from the PN program in the BSCN program so you'll never really see them or interact with them. I've seen my PN teachers about once or twice in the last year.

    I don't know what it is for sure, but know you need at least an 80% average in your RPN program...it could even be 85% but I know it's a combination of your average plus your admission questionaire.

  20. RPN-Minimum wage
    I agree. You are being taken advantage of. I would never work for $13/hour. My friend works at a fast food place and makes that much. Ridiculous. I work in a hospital and also make $29/hr.
