  1. No work experience? CNA?
    I don't know what the difference in an NA and a CNA is. If this facility is willing to train you, they probably don't expect you to have much experience. But your real-life experience is certainly...

  2. Scrub tops that don't show cleavage
    I'm a fan of Old Navy's Perfect Tanks. I love the way they fit! They're tight enough under my scrub tops that they aren't bulky, don't need to be adjusted much, and are plenty long enough to keep my...

  4. Shepherd Center Nurse Extern Program
    I can't comment about the Shepherd Center specifically (except to say I know they do amazing work), but I think you should call the recruiter to follow up. I've gotten a few jobs over other...

  6. Recent ADN Grads in Georgia
    True. The contingency was only offered to the few ADNs that were hired - which means only people who were already working there as techs.

    I got a position at a hospital with the condition that I get my BSN later. I had also been working at this faculty during school. Some of my classmates were able to get hospital positions with no...

  8. To Hiring Managers, please be honest
    I am pretty sure I work for the organization in question, based on the OP's previous posts. Yes, you will be automatically rejected until you can retest. We hired a bunch of new staff recently, and...

  10. Is your Facility 'forcing' you to get the Flu Vaccine?
    I wonder if we work at the same facility. My facility just instituted this policy as well. I took the flu shot, but don't usually, and really don't want to continue to do so every year! Several of my...

  12. Xxs scrub bottoms? Help!
    Maybe try Koi? They seem to be made of a thicker material, and run a bit smaller than other brands IMO.

    If you think you want to work ER, try to get a job in one as a tech while you're in nursing school. You'll either conquer you're fears or realize that it isn't for you and find something else. Good...

  15. Nausea, loose runny stools, or dizzines???
    I would say drowsiness. To me, a change in mentation is more concerning than the other options. I feel like nausea and diarrhea are unpleasant, but often expected, SEs of abx. Dizziness is concerning...

    Gamommy, I'm not sure if they are still hiring, but if I remember correctly, you have your Associate's, and I believe Piedmont only hires BSNs. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. I also...

    Yes, tigerRN. In fact, health insurance is automatically included in your tuition as a nursing student. If you have it already and don't want it through the school, you have to fill out a waiver...

    That depends on how (and if) they decide to do it. For several years, 140 students would be accepted into the GHC program. WellStar would then send applications to the students they were interested...
