  1. School Shootings

    These shootings break my heart every time I hear about them. I'm certainly no expert in the field of mass-shootings, but here's what I've gathered from all of this: There are many people who want tighter gun restrictions, etc. I understand this point...
  2. 2018 Mayo Clinic Nurse Residency- July 2 Cohort

    Hi, sorry I didn't see your message. I did write a cover letter. My nurse recruiter highly suggested it because they want to know exactly what you're looking for in a job. Your cover letter should address three questions: 1.) Medical or surgical floo...
  3. Great post! I think it's very common for nursing students to feel the same way. I'm graduating from a traditional BSN program, and I don't feel ready. Most programs are transitioning towards an educational model, and moving away from a "skills" model...

    Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for the encouragement. I feel the same way; just so lucky to have a job at Mayo.. but I feel like I'll never live up to the high expectations. Thank you for the encouraging words. My wife and I are looking into buyin...

    Congratulations!! That's so exciting. When is your tentative start date?
  10. Mayo Clinic 2018

    Thanks for your help! I'll be working 8's days/evenings. It's nice to know that Mayo doesn't low census you often. In the hospital where I've done my clinicals, it happens quite a bit. Nurses burn through all their PTO without even being able to use ...
  11. Can Somebody Explain NCLEX Process?

    Just register with Minnesota by exam. I think it costs $137. Then register for the NCLEX on Pearson Vue. After you send you fingerprints to Minnesota Board of Nursing, they'll approve you to take the NCLEX. You use the code they give you, enter it in...

  13. Mayo Clinic 2018

    Thank you so much for being willing to answer questions! I have a few! I recently accepted a job on a medical cardiac PCU, and I'd love to hear more about Mayo. 1. What unit(s) did you work on? 2. What was relocating like? Did you rent or buy a hous...
  14. Can Somebody Explain NCLEX Process?

    Thank you for the help! I think nursing students should all be assigned free personal coaches to manage the stress of school!
  15. Can Somebody Explain NCLEX Process?

    Thank you!! I registered with my state, and paid Pearson Vue. I really appreciate the help!
