    I too am starting to research Mission for a future position. Can anybody give any input to how the CVICU works as far as scheduling? Do the nurses schedule their own hours, rotate weekends, etc. Do they offer weekend Baylor options? Do they utilize 12 hour shifts?

    I'm glad to hear that it took everyone else a while to get things going after getting the official offer! I'm also a new grad, but received the "conditional offer" letter about a week before graduation. I'm anxious to get a start date set up, but I also have to pass NCLEX, lol. I was told that I probably won't be able to get a test date until the 3rd or 4th week of January, and I'm a little concerned about what that will mean for my start date...and also how long they will hold the position for me (I told the hiring manager when I interviewed that I likely wouldn't be able to test until mid to late January).

    Also, did anyone have a problem getting an apartment with the "conditional offer" letter? Since it doesn't have a start date, I'm a bit concerned that it won't be good enough to serve as verification of income.
