    PCA Lenox Hill Hospital

    So a little background info:I had my CNA license in another state (RI) back in 2011-2012. Since then, I've been working as a Direct Support Professional (taking care of adults with developmental disabilities) in various settings (group homes, day hab, pre vocational). I recently got my CNA license again in NYC through Hostos, however, I haven't had much relevant experience, as my work as a DSP doesn't technically qualify. I've been applying to all the hospitals for quite some time now. A recruiter from Lenox Hill Hospital called me 5/16 stating she was interested in my resume and would like to do a phone interview so I completed the phone interview the same day a few hours later. She seemed to like my answers as she told me she wanted me to interview with the Nurse Manager. She gave me info on orientation and the hours of the position and some basic info about salary and the company. She also said that they would train me for EKG and Phlebotomy, which I thought was great! I went to the interview and it was pretty straight forward. It was with the Nurse Manager, Assistant Nurse Manager, and one of the PCAs. The questions were pretty simple: Why do you want to be a PCA? What did your last role entail? What is your 5 year plan? The Nurse Manager and Asst Nurse Manager told me about opportunity for growth in the company and explained about the position. The PCA told me about the day to day and then gave me a tour of the unit. Afterwards, the nurse manager said she would check in with the recruiter to finish up interviews and she would touch base with me. I haven't heard anything since. I reached out to the recruiter the same day to ask for the nurse managers email to send a thank you note but she didn't respond. I sent her another email yesterday just asking if there's any updates on the position or anything I need to do and also thanked her for the opportunity. Still no response. Should I just accept that I didn't get the job or is this a typical time frame to not hear back? This was my first interview at a hospital so I'm not sure what to expect. To be honest, I was surprised I even got an interview as I don't exactly have experience in that type of setting. Anyone have any experiences similar or can shed some light? Thanks in advance!

    Monroe College LPN

    I'm looking into Monroe college 1+1+1 program and I was wondering if anyone could give me their personal experiences? I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what exactly the hours for classes are? The advisor told me to be available 9-6 but I do work full time and want to know if that's flexible at all. I'm a CNA and can adjust my hours but the only shifts are 7-3, 3-11, 11-7. I also have a 7 year old daughter. Also, what is the job outlook like? Was it easy to get a job after completion? Did they help you? Thanks in advance

    What are my options?

    Thank you for being brutally honest! You're right I do need to get my ass together. I was overloading myself with classes and believeint I would still pass. I need to put all of my energy into my goals and dreams! I am an auditory tactile learner so any advise would be appreciated. And thank you again!

    What are my options?

    Thank you so much for the info. I looked into Monroe College and that seems like it will be my best option. I'm awaiting their call back for more info. I'm just worried because I got my associates degree from a private college and now I'm in the hole 28k in student loans and didn't want to add on any more but it looks like this is my only option and hopefully it will pay off in the end. Thank you again!!

    What are my options?

    Ok I began my journey to nursing in 2015. I originally took A&P I in the spring. I received an A- in lab and C- in lecture. I was unhappy with the C- so decided to retake it in the Summer of 2015 and received a C. I realize in hind sight, I should have stopped at this point as there are some community colleges that accept a C. I then moved on to A&P II in Fall 2015, but was going through many personal issues at that time and received a D in both. Moving onto Spring 2016, I retook A&P II, at which point I received an A in the lab and an F in lecture (I was under the impression I had withdrawn from the class but that wasn't the case) And then finally to dig myself into an even bigger hole, I retook the lecture portion of A&P I yet again and received a D. I live in Bronx, NY. I know obviously this is a very bad track record. I was attempting to see if I could retake both lectures (yet again) however I am now at a community college, where as I was at a private college prior. I also have an associates degree in liberal arts (not sure if that makes a difference) Wondering if there's any hopes of me getting into any nursing program in my area. Will literally be willing to do anything at this point. I am obviously very disappointed in myself for allowing stress etc to distract me from my goal. However, this is what I wanted to do since I can remember and I don't wanna give up my dream, but I also want to be realistic. So please, give it to me straight and let me know what my options are, if any. Also, if anyone had a similar experience, I would love to hear it. Thank you all Signed, a very stressed out wanna-be Nurse

    Lincoln tech?

    I'm looking into doing the LPN program at the Paramus, NJ Lincoln Tech Location. I'm looking for people who have actually completed the program and can tell me their experiences. My main concern is if the classes will be able to transfer over as I want to continue to become an RN after. The reason I'm looking into a technical school is because of low grades in a&p. I took both I and II and passed both labs with A's but retook both lectures twice and ended up with a C in a&p I and a D in a&p II so I don't meet the minimum gpa required for most state/city schools and not sure what other options I have. I appreciate your input.

    Evening LPN programs in and around bronx area

    I think maybe that depends on the area because I'm a CNA and have been applying for jobs & all I see on the listings are hospitals looking for LPNs. I did look at the list, however, I'm looking for peoples personal experiences because most have mixed reviews. Thanks.
  12. I'm looking into evening classes for LPN which I'm learning sounds easier than it actually is. I have the pre requisites most programs are asking for but I had to retake the lecture portion of A&P I & II twice as I didn't receive passing grades the first two times. This is proving somewhat of a barrier, which is why I decided to do LPN first and then transfer to an RN program later on. I would like the school to have hands on curriculum. I also want to ensure that the school I go to is accreditted and also assists with job placement into a hospital setting after completion. Any experiences you want to share are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
