I am so excited! I accomplished yet another goal: secure employment before graduation! HALLELUJAH!!! I got accepted in the OR. They said, "If you're willing to learn, we'll take you!" This is excellent - get to start out in specialty!

Hello,

You need to apply for your GVN (or GN -- are you RN or LVN?) with your state board. My school sends all our paperwork in for us so 10 days after pinning we all receive our GVN to work. That's all you need to work as a nurse, but refrain from telling patients you are a licensed nurse, because you're not until you pass the boards. There are a number of people who became disqualified from taking boards even before getting it because they misrepresented themselves as LVN when they were only GVN.

Specializes in LTC.

Congrats !!! I'm so happy for you. Maybe I should start my job hunting for a GVN job. I've just been trying to get through finals first, before applying to jobs. BTW... I love the OR !

Let me know how it goes because I loved the OR and I graduate in 3 weeks and I want to apply for a OR position.
