I thought I had read that somewhere before and now per website, it seems we only need the scrubs (green top, khaki pants) or am I missing something?
- 0Jan 11 by SuzyQ2011Quote from HokieNurse21How are students placed in preceptorship? Do you pick areas you want/do not want? Do they try to honor requests or do they place students based on experience, GPA, etc?I thought I would help sKris out with replies (I want to know who you are sKris!!). Most of us that graduated in Aug. 2013 have taken NCLEX and passed. I only know of one person that did not pass, and it was because of not studying. The NCLEX from my experience is a beast separate from nursing school. I took the Kaplan prep class, and the "Decision Tree" way of thinking was helpful as well as the billion NCLEX questions you have to practice. It was not so much focused on content, but HOW to take the test. As you guys get closer I can elaborate more.
Job search: harder in NOVA. Friends that have moved back home outside of VA are having great luck. I did get an interview and I am awaiting a job offer from the place I had my preceptorship (the last capstone clinical in the summer). So I believe it is extremely important to try and get the preceptorship placement you want, BUT do it in a respectful and professional way. We had students that were not doing that, and that is not cool.
Let us know if you have other questions.
