    Tmendels I just submitted my application for licensure last week, hopefully it won't take very long! It was pretty straight forward but I'm still waiting on them to send me the fingerprint card so that I can complete that part. Let me know if you have questions!

    Eek am I the only one who hasn't applied for TN licensure yet?? Now I'm worried :/UTSN89 where are the houses? I've heard traffic/parking is terrible so I'm trying to find something in walking distance and not in the ghetto. Lol

    Don't worry... I'm starting my licensure app this week for TN. I'm hoping 2 months should be sufficient time to get it.

    Yikes! You guys are making me nervous! I haven't even taken NCLEX yet b/c I graduate on Dec. 18th. I'm hoping to have my examination request packet and app for licensure mailed in this week. I'm so nervous that this process is going to take forever. Is there anyone else who's going to be taking NCLEX in TN?

    UTSN89: I'm looking for roommate, too! Which area are the houses located in? Price ranges?

    I am applying for the residency program for the summer of 2013. Currently I am in my last year of school at UCCS in colorado. My passion lies in critical care and eventually I would like to return to school for CRNA. I would greatly appreciate anyone's advice on how to get selected and what should be put in the letter of intent. Congrats to all who were accepted for the winter

    Awesome! I have looked at a lot of houses in various areas. Rent for three people would be anywhere from $400-600. Give or take a little. I just wanted to find people willing to live there before I narrowed it down.

    That's exciting! I am so jealous that you are in Colorado--so pretty! I just got accepted into the critical care track for winter 2013. I think my best advice would be to really iterate throughout your application why critical care is your passion. What made you decide to go into critical care? What have you done to show that this is your dream area of nursing? (ie. volunteering, working in the ICU, maybe shadowing a critical care nurse, or having your capstone in the ICU, etc.). Good luck to you! If you have any more questions, I would be more than happy to help!!
