    Can you recommend a RN to BSN school to RN to MSN ?

    WGU pass or fail systems has steered me away also. I would hate to get through the program and encounter issue later on down the line.

    New grad RN, absolutely hate nursing

    I wouldn't run out just yet !!!!!!! Being able to get into nursing school and succeed is a gift that not many people can accomplish. And i am a firm believer in the saying “Everything Happens For A Reason”. The anxiety and fear that you are feeling is NORMAL. As a new grad no one wants to make a mistake. There are hundreds of thousands of nursing jobs. Ex. Work from home, teach, office jobs, medical writer etc. Dont give up on your dreams because of one bad experience !!

    Is it wrong to leave a job during orientation?

    This question is solely based a dicussion at work. A recent hired decided to part ways after about 8 days of training orientation usually last about 30 days or more depending on how long the person needs. Many of the staff members were upset and began to ridicule this nurse because of it. In my opinion i think the orientation phase of the job is for either party (the job or the worker) to see if the job is a good fit. After all you wont know what kind of job it is unless you try. A co-worker of mine mentioned that every time he trains someone they run out the door and never come back lol Do you think it is wrong for a person to leave during orientation ? Share your opinion down below? My current job is a LTC facility many of our patients take psychiatric medications and have behaviors (fighting, biting, scratching etc).

    How was your experience with WGU? I read that this program required field hours.
  5. Hi, I am a recent nursing graduate looking to start school this upcoming fall for rn to bsn. Some of the schools i am interested in are WGU, thomas edison state university and Wilmington university. I was wondering if anyone can provide insight of the school mentioned or recommend a good rn to bsn program at another school.  I want to attend a school that is online and fully accredited. One that will not affect my chances of finding a job. Or break my pockets lol. I heard that many hospitals wont except a bsn from wgu ? Is this true ? Has anyone that graduated fron wgu had issues with finding a job ?  If anyone has some information about their process experience and recommendations I greatly appreciate it

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    I completely disagree i worked for a united method company for 9 years that offered benefits to be deducted out my check biweekly at the time i opted out of it. I did not see any thing wrong with it. I also accrued hundreds of hours in pto that did not come out my hourly wage and rolled over each year. And we also have the option of cashing out. Bottom line is being that I'm new to the company i will not receive my benefits until after the first year. This particular company does not offer the roll over option at all. But assuming that the company has their own PA that comes in i guess it makes sense. Ps. This LTC facility was sound 4xs from what i hear its under new ownership and the benefit package was not always this way.

    I agree. HR keeps avoiding me, i stopped by her office several times she keeps saying she’s busy.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    No i did not receive an offer letter at all. They do provide a paper pay stub. Im so disappointed because im seeing so many red flags about this place. My sister in law told me to put in my resignation letter also because all of the unit managers are lpns. They sit at the desk during care plans and putting in Drs. Order will i pass meds all day and I'm an RN.

    Unfortunately no online access this Ltc is not up to date. We don't even have direct deposit because they say its too expensive. Same for nursing no online software or access to nursing policies without having to scavenger hunt around the nursing stations.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Without PTO you wouldn’t be able to take personal time off at all. Unless you call out or have someone switch days with you. The DON explained that to me during my interview.

    Yes per diem workers can still work full time hours. But in my case im not per diem i work full time so i cannot work under 5 days a week. I did do the math is doesn’t add up i would lose a lot of money with pto and benefits. Come to think of it, it sounds as if the company is getting over by paying everyone as if they work per diem wages.
