    My background has been with a nursing staffing company and it def is a good idea to check out what opportunities they could offer you. Classicdame is correct in that most hospitals and other points of care will not hire you without the requisition 1 year of exp under your belt. However, as budget cuts have impacted hiring needs for hospitals, many are willing to hire (through registry) the new graduate nurse. The delta between not enough hiring funds and new grads has had profound effects on many new grads ... Hope this helps.

    Hello gettingbsn2msn:

    I am 45 years old and I'm a career changer as well. I have a BS & MBA in non-nursing disciplines and have thought I might be too old to go back an pursue a nursing degree. I will be applying to an ADN program (offered during evenings) and once I pass the boards, I intend to go straight into an RN-MSN degree program. I would love to become a nurse educator, however I'm leaving my options open. Glad you and others on this post had the courage to get back in the ring and tuff it out! Congratulations!!!!

    Hello acallednurse:

    You post inspired me to reach out to you; thank you for your blessed words! I'm a student just starting out and it looks like a long road ahead. I have a BS degree in a non-nursing discipline and a traditional MBA. I work with nurses everyday and felt a calling to the direct care nursing field. So, here I am .. a student again. Needless to say, I am excited about my new journey and welcome any tips/points anyone could afford to share in terms of balancing FT work and nursing school.

    Congratulations on passing the boards! You worked long and hard for this and I appreciate you sharing your story because it was truly inspiring! Thank you!

    Hi Mary92026,

    I'm in your same boat! I'm just started the Fall semester ('11) to get underway with my prereqs. I'm in SoCal, so the community college route is best for me as I need to maintain my FT job. I decided to take the easier pre-reqs to ramp up and get back into the swing of college. So, I'm taking Child Dev and Psych this semester, along with an 8-week CNA course (which is a pre-nursing requirement for my nursing program). Spring 2012, I'll take Intro to A&P (OR) Biology/Lab (and) Sociology....I am trying to balance my course load because we need to allow sufficient time for studying, etc. What did you end up deciding to do?

    Hi Lame. Congratulations on your TEAS test. Great job. I wanted to ask you which study materials did you use to prepare for the TEAS. I understand there are many resources out there and sounds like your plan worked well. Please let me know; thanks! Darriz1

    Congratulations of getting accepted into the Jan 2012 cohort. I was thinking about APU's ELM program and wanted your feedback on how well you thought the admissions process went. Are they on the waiting list or points system? What are your impressions of this college overall. I would be very interested in learning from you....
