I just have to pop in and say Best wishes to all of you going to St.V's. I graduated from St.V's in 1986 when it was St.Vincents Medical Center School of Nursing. It was a 3 yr diploma program then. I lived in the dorm which I have heard is not there anymore. I have been been an RN for 15 years now..now work in Philadelphia in a Pediatric ICU. I don't regret any of my time spent at ST.V's... met 3 of my best friends there...2 of them are Godmothers to 2 of my children. Some of my fellow grads work in the ICU. Reading your posts brought back great memories for me...I wish you all the best!

It was nice to hear from someone else who went to St. V's. And you're right, they don't have the 3 yr diploma prgm anymore. Instead, they have a 2 yr ADN with the option to bridge over to a BSN through Sacred Heart Univ. They're also doing some huge renovations, adding a 60,000 sq ft to the hospital itself.
I'm starting a new job soon as a Unit Clerk/MST at a local hosp to get some real "hospital experience". I figured by working in a hospital I'd be more comfortable when it came time for clinicals, plus, I might actually learn someting (=

I'll be working at Griffin on a med-surg floor & occasionally floating. Nope, I've never had any Unit Clerk/MST experience, but I've worked in dr's offices & as a nurse's aide. They have job postings on their website if you want to take a look: www.griffinhealth.org. It's a small hospital & everyone I've met so far has been very friendly. If you need any more info, just let me know,
