    Hi,

    After a LOOOOONG road, I am finally getting my BSN from MWSU this May and in the process of applying for their Fall 2018 MSN program. I am a little confused about the GRE Score It Now requirement? I hate that they require it considering it is not required at hardly any of the other Texas programs.

    I am in the process of applying now for Fall 2018. I did not know they even had a program until a couple of months ago! Have you applied or been accepted there?

    WOW!! Thanks you guys for the great responses. I took your advice and stayed PRN in my ol' ER so I'll always know I can drop in and say "hi" and make sure I still keep up those skills. I suppose it is always scary to change jobs and areas, but I am going into this with an open mind and I am of course very excited about the money increase and having weekends/holidays with my family.

    Hi everyone!! I graduated nursing school in 05 and started an internship in the ER where I have happily worked ever since. It was a long tough road to feel confident with the ER, lots of ups and downs and I definitely learned SO SO much. I love the ER through and through, BUT, because of the low low pay and hours, I started to look elsewhere and recently received a job offer at a plastic surgery center. The job is for a circulating nurse in the OR. The hours are M-F 830 to 5 (great for a mom with two little ones), no weekends, no holidays (again, awesome for moms), and the pay is ridiculous....oh and they also pay my health insurance. I have gone from 24.00 and hour to 32.00 which is going to be about a 15000/yr pay increase. So here is my dilemma, I feel like I would be a fool to pass this up, but at the same time I worry that I am going to be bored out of my mind and I know right now I am going to miss my friends terribly. Does anyone out there ave any experiences with surgery centers?? Can anyone give me some thoughts? advice?

    OK, I have worked in an ER for 2.5 years now, and I am looking to take it down a notch. I am currently looking for a new job and I am wondering how do you get a job working in a privae practice? I never seem to see any ads for them-only hospital positiions. Anyone know the answer to this
