    Thanks, that helps ! Do you know if your friend is on a med surg floor or something similar?

    Hi guys, I'm planning on moving to the Kansas City area soon and I'm curious as to what floor nursing (med surg, telemetry, etc.) is like at KU Med with regards to nurse-patient ratios and management support. I've heard a lot of good things about St. Lukes, so I'm wondering if KU is similar. Thanks!

    I also graduated in August 2011 and I'm also looking into applying for ICU positions when I move in few months. I'm currently working on a Med-Surg floor. I honestly feel like critical care is a better fit for me, but I'm anxious about learning how to mess with ventilators O_O. I'm a pretty quick learner, but I'm expecting there to be a lot of training with new, high tech medical devices that will make my brain want to explode.

    I wish you good luck and hope you would come back to post your experiences after a few weeks on your new job

    Hi! I graduated from The University of Memphis back in August, so I'm not sure how much has changed since I started the program. Unfortunately, I don't remember much about the TEAs. As far as applying before you have taken nutrition, you shouldn't have any issues. Plenty of students in the program did not have their gen eds completed.

    I know a girl who took statistics in her senior year, after she had already completed Research in Nursing (which involved a bit of stats), so I assume they don't really care about the order in which you take your remaining gen eds. It does, however, affect your chances of getting in, since students who have completed gen eds are preferred. You already have a good ACT score, great GPA, and a degree though so it shouldn't be so bad. Good luck!
