The interview went really well and they liked me a lot. Alas, they picked someone else for the position. they also said that if I were to keep trying, they would love to have me. It's certainly not the worst turn down in the world. I have another interview this Friday in a closer hospital. Wish me luck!

Two things that hurt me a bit in the interview...

- nursing student means my schedule will be tough to work around when classes start again. I told them I was willing to work partial days as well as predicting classes are at most 4 days a week... freeing up 3 days to work.

- My CNA application is in processing. I just mailed it off and still need to get tested... which I see no problem in passing. It just means that paperwork wise, I wasn't as ready to go as someone already holding a CNA.

My personal Kudo: in this job market, I am getting calls back and people are interested! ... I have a fallback plan of substituting at schools and have been working nearly everyday since the semester got out.

:yeah:

:yeah: Congrats!-

I recently change from pre-med to pre-nursing. My GPA fell a tad, from a 3.7 to a 3.2, but this semester after switching to nursing, I raised my GPA back up to a 3.5! Im stoked! That is not totally competitive, but I have a whole 'nother semester of courses to get it back up! Best of luck to all of you! :) We all deserve a little "YAY FOR ME" every now and then!

I think this thread needs to be back up front and center now that many of us are back in the swing of things for fall semester!

I passed my first exam (cardiac -- supposedly the hardest exam of the semester) with an 80! Very proud of myself, considering the questions were really tricky, and I was certain I had failed :yeah:

Come on, I know there's more great student achievements out there, let's hear em!

made through our entire rounds of check offs without failing any of them! ! !

a B on both of our nursing tests so far

a 95 on our pharm test (woop! i stink at math)

Had my first physical assessment on a real patient today and did awesome! Got a "you did amazing, Im really proud of you and cant wait to teach you more this semester" from my clinical instructor after our first clinical today.

whew. it felt great to say all of that out loud. I cant tell my classmates my grades and whatnot without getting dirty looks or having them chase me down after a test to see if they "beat me" or not. Im so not a competitive person Im always happy for everyone when they do well.

Great job you guys!! we should all be proud of ourselves and each other :)

I am so excited!

I got a 90% on the hardest test of the entire program (per the instructors)!

I only have one more med-surg test to go before graduation and I can miss over half the questions and still pass the class!!

I just took our exit ATI and passed at the top 96% in the nation!

There is nothing stopping me from graduating in December now!!! :D

Let's see I haven't posted in here since I passed nursing school a few months ago. Well I will toot again, I passed NCLEX a few days later and I have been working as a nurse in a hospital since June. I am off orientation for a couple weeks and now I am a working RN on my own and LOVING it 99% of the time.

Woo, awesome day! I actually felt minimally competent :eek:

I did my first straight cath, my first IVP, knew all my meds (and got quizzed on two other students' when they didn't know theirs), and got a nice comment from a pt. It seemed to me like things finally clicked in some new way. I still probably have pretty crappy time management, and I could be more organized, but this was my first shift on this floor, so I know that will come.
