    I graduated in May and I am having trouble finding any job, let alone a NICU position. I recently applied to a New Grad Endoscopy position, but I am wondering if that would hinder me from getting into the NICU in the future? I am open to any unit, I just want to get my one year of experience and move to NICU as soon as I can. Should I turn down the endoscopy position or take it because there isn't much else?

    Has anyone registered with myClinicalExchange? Do you know what cohort we are in? I am assuming RN EVE - 4162, but I just want to be sure!

    I thought CHM 130 was a prerequisite before even submitting the RN application!! How's that possible?
    I took Chemistry in high school so that counts for the RN, but the BSN wants CHM130.

    I just wanted to check in with everybody and see where in the process you are. I have submitted some of my documents to My Clinical Exchange and also to Certified Profile. I am waiting on my CPR class which is at the end of June, I still need my TB tests and to have my doctor sign off on the physical form. I haven't signed up for my classes yet or gotten books. I did talk to the bookstore and they thought the book packages would be in sometime in July. I am still anxiously awaiting for the program to start. I don't really know what to do with myself until August. I am not very good at waiting
    I have all of my titers, tests and my physical done. I just need one more Hep B immunization in August. I signed up for classes a couple of weeks ago and picked up my tote bag while I was down there. I still need to sign up for My Clinical Exchange and Certified Profile and upload my documents. I am taking PSY230 and PSY240 online this summer to get my mind of the waiting lol. I just need CHM130 and a humanities for the NAU pre-reqs to do the NAU Mid-AAS RN to BSN program. I am taking CHM 130 online through Phoenix college this fall and I will get that last humanities done in the spring. So excited to get started!!

    I was also placed in the evening program at Gateway. I am going to try to do the mid-AAS BSN through NAU. I am just waiting on one County to respond for my background check. I hope they said more information soon! I still need some vaccinations and the physical.

    I also just received my acceptance email for the Gateway Evening Program! I can't remember what my exact time stamp was, but I think it was 060415. I deferred in the spring in hopes of getting the evening program! I am so excited! 😃

    I need to take the chemistry requirement for the RN-BSN program at ASU. Does anyone know if ASU cares if I take the chemistry class at Rio? Is it better to take it at Chandler-Gilbert where I have done all of my other pre and co requisites? I still need to take BIO205 and PSY230 next spring. I was already placed in the nursing program for the spring and had to defer. So its likely I will get placed again in the fall. I'm not sure that I will be able to swing block 1 and chemistry together. Summer school isn't really an option either because I work full time and have kids. It would be so much more convenient to take chemistry online. Thanks for the insight!!

    I took the evening class at AMTI during the summer. It wasn't too bad. The equipment seems really old, but it is because they pump so many classes through that it gets a ton of use. I didn't find the class very hard, pretty common sense stuff. As in 80% of the time the answer is tell your nurse. They give you 2 chances to pass each test. If you fail 2 tests and retakes, but continue to keep coming to class they will let you take the next class for free. There were a couple of people in my class that struggled through the whole course. They didn't fail 2 retakes, but the school felt they wouldn't pass boards so they wouldn't let them take them. That's how they keep their pass rates so high. The instructor was kind of weird, but he was nice and took the time to make sure you got everything right. They will keep you for the entire length of the class, even if you finish up early because there are a set number of in person hours you need for state boards. I took boards in August and passed the first time. It is helpful to practice in the rooms that you will actually be tested in because you already know where everything is. I have yet to start actually working as a CNA, but that is because I haven't really been looking. Lol. AMTI was by far the cheapest and fastest option to get the CNA. I would probably go there again to get my CNA.

    Thank you for the ideas! I didn't even think of an Amazon gift card. That is a great suggestion. I ended up having to defer this semester... My family and I weren't expecting to be placed so quickly and we weren't fully prepared for me to quit my job so soon. It sucked submitting the deferment, but it gives me a little extra time to prepare. I have a hard time hearing (many ear infections as a kid) so I will definitely look into that stethoscope. Thanks again!

    I submitted my deferment today. I wasn't prepared for getting placed so quickly. Lol Going to try for gwcc evening in the fall. Good luck everyone else!

    Congratulations! I'm trying to figure out how far they went in June... Do you know what time your stamp was on June 5th?
    Mine was 08:03:04. Thought I had no chance lol. I bet you will get it in the second or third round!

    Hi everyone! My timestamp was 06/05/2015 08:03:04 and SCC was my second choice. I honestly wasn't expecting to get placed in the first round. Anyway, what are some must haves for nursing school? I was thinking of asking for a stethoscope, BP cuff, and obviously money from my family for Christmas. Any and all ideas are welcome! And congrats to everyone else that was placed today!!
