  1. I'm all over the place when it comes to studying the grammar portion on Hesi, what should I mainly study?

    Why would I subtract 10-15%? How do you know I should subtract these numbers?

    Would I Have To Retake Nclex

    I contacted the BON for Texas and they told me that I wouldn't have to take Nclex again but I would have to Texas's " Nursing Jurisprudence Examination" . I must pass this test with 75%.

    Pediatric Private Duty Cases

    So basically you work 6 to 7 nights at $25 an hour which is good. I work 5 days a week at $22 an hour and I bring home $3214 a month which is decent. This job is the most I have made doing pediatric private duty. I too also do not have benefits because this company is Medicaid funded so I have to get outside health insurance. I do not get paid time and a half for holidays. I do have sick pay but I only get 2 hours every paycheck so per month 4 hours of sick leave accumulate. Thank you for sharing. I do not know how independent contracting works.

    I would get to work by taking the bus. Once I got a car I was given more permenant cases.

    Pediatric Private Duty Cases

    I have been a LVN for five years. For most of those years I didn't have a car, so all I really could do was pediatric nursing because the companies didn't require me to have car. I have been let go of cases because the family didn't feel comfortable with me taking caring of their child and that's what the company would tell me with some cases and others I didn't know why I was let go. Once I got a car I was given more permenant cases.

    Update: I no longer work for this case mentioned above. I still work for the company that gave me the case mentioned above but now work for a new family. I've been working for this new family for a month as of now.

    Pediatric Private Duty Cases

    I work doing private duty through a company. Some call it home health care while others say private duty.

    Why would you need a business license? As long as you have your license transferred to California that's all you'd need.

    The College of Healthcare Professions

    In California most private schools with the ADN program is about $85,000, so to find a school for half the price that only accepts LVN's seems like a good deal to me.

    Thank you so much, but who knows if Ill even get into that school since I am in California and that school is in Texas. I do not know if I would want to move in ten years or so. I have a pretty decent job making enough money for needs and some wants. I do believe these schools do not just accept anyone but those with healthcare experience, high entrance exam scores, and high gpa's. Besides the only unit in the hospital that I want to work in is Behavioral Health/Psych. Other then this unit Im fine doing private duty. I know not alot of companies hire RN's to do private duty but I can definitively get job doing private duty which I am doing as of now.

    The College of Healthcare Professions

    I took a chance when going to a regionally accredited school for my LVN and most of your cons that you mentioned for for a trade school didn't happen to me. I was able to graduate the VN program, passed Nclex after second try, and got a job. My job may not be in a hospital but I was able to get work in long term care and private duty. I did check the pass rates for Nclex through The College of Healthcare Professions and they have only have had the RN program for three years. The first two years of being open they got 65% pass rate and last year they got 95% pass rate. I wouldn't just quite yet go and apply to the program any time soon until I see the schools progress on Nclex pass rates. Most jobs don't really consider the school went to but the experience the candidate has.

    These schools are good for those who can't get into a traditional RN program it just cost.

    I thought the entrance exams wouldn't be to hard since its the Hesi exam which test on English, Grammar, and Math no science and a LVN to RN mobility test which is a nursing test.
