  1. I am also in California. I often see postings for psych RN jobs encouraging new grads to apply. The main difference I've noticed is that hospitals (with a psych floor/unit) seem to want experience, while free standing or private organizations don't...
  2. Allegation of Neglect

    So... you did measure, there was no medication missing, and you admitted to not measuring and overdosing. If you overdosed your patients, wouldn't there be medication missing? If you did measure properly (as you say), why admit to not measuring? Ma...
  3. Failed Accelerated BSN program

    I would definitely continue with the program. 2 years will fly by. Some people just need a slower pace to absorb the information (it's a lot!!). Either way you're going to turn 40, it's up to you whether you have a BSN or not when you do! I hope you...
  4. resigned

    I would be honest to future employers. I had a job where I didn't feel like I could ask for help, and I was annoying the other nurses when I did. Eventually this lead me to finding another job. When I went on interviews and they asked why I was lea...
  5. Should I walk away from nursing or keep trying?

    If you're able to get back in the hospital I would go for it. Get your experience and with that will come confidence. Then you can try for a clinic job if you still feel like that's what you want to do. As far as the hours and missing holidays, I'...
  6. Mom Wants Me to Become an RN as Backup... But I Don't

    As many others have said, If YOU don't want to go into nursing, DON'T DO IT. Nursing school will always be there if that's something you choose later in life. There are plenty of people in school in their 30's, 40's etc. I could't even imagine get...
  7. New grad RN, can't land a job after nursing school

    Like someone else mentioned, try post acute facilities, psych, corrections, hospice etc. Might not be what you saw yourself doing, but our first job rarely is. Those jobs will give you experience, pay the bills, and often hire new grads. Hospital j...
  8. I think feeling this way is more common than you think. Especially if you don't have a supportive working environment. During my first few months as an RN my supervisor told me they didn't think I was cut out for the job and put me on an additional...
  9. NEW GRAD RN - will I get hired?

    Hey there! I think acute care is always good experience to have. Is it necessary for aesthetic nursing? not so much as your clients will be healthy 99% of the time. I worked at an aesthetic nurse for about three years. I went in without experienc...
  10. I worked in cosmetic/aesthetic nursing for about 3 years. The med spa I worked at provided on site training which some places will do. If experience is required it's usually for the injectable treatments (botox, fillers, etc.) from what I've found....
  11. University of South Alabama Psych NP Program

    I'm also looking into this program. Cost wise it looks like one of the better online ones. Any info/advise would be greatly appreciated. I'm also looking to apply for Spring '19 :)
