    Hi! I'm a new nurse here barely a year and i signed up to work as a nurse however, since the workplace i've been in opened up I worked as a CNA. Employer said that they can't find enough CNAs that's why we have to do this job. I don't have anything against CNAs,actually i respect the kind of hardwork they do but i just didn't study and signed up to work like so. I want to work as a nurse,because that's what i am. Recently, my employer gave us a paper to sign that says we are agreeing to work as Aides until such time that they can get them(its almost 4 months and we only have about 6 to 10 aides in all shifts for 7 days) w/c we are not sure until when. I don't feel so comfortable signing something like that since its not written in the contract that i signed originally. Please advise,especially those who have been here in USA for sometime. I never had to work this hard in my country, we have orderlies there. I just thought that there's better delegation here but my current experience is telling me otherwise. Thanks in advance for your advise.

    Just wanted to say hello to everybody. Currently I live in the East Harlem section of NYC. I'm a writer who focuses on health issues, including nursing. Any nurse/writers in this forum? Or just writers who write about nursing?

    Hi there all you current New Yorkers. I lived there for 54 years, but was inaccessible to nursing, so I moved to State College, PA, graduated fourth in my class, and received a perfect attendence award, and then I got really sick.

    Are there any RNs out there who attended PACE university in NYC---the accelerated BSN? Can it be completed in a year (with the prereqs already completed)?

    I have a BA and MA in non-nursing field, if i have the prereqs completed, how long would the BSN at Hunter take to complete?

I was told by upperclassmen in my school to start looking for internships for this summer now in january but Im not having any luck. Im from manhattan. Can anyone give me any tips?

    Thank you in advance,

    I know that there are a few hospitals in Manhattan that offer internships. You might try contacting the Nursing Recruiters for several facilities and let them know that you are interested in applying for an internship and could they provide you with the information fo rthe application process. I believe, just to get you started, but do not hold me to it, that Mount Sinai Medical Center and NYU Medical Center have internship programs. Good luck in your quest and let us know how you make out.
