    UWorld?

    That is awesome! Congratulations :D I have heard many good reviews!

    UWorld?

    This is good to know, thank you! Maybe I will wait until closer to graduation to get it because if I get the 90-day package now it expires in May! I would like to review the whole month of June and take my NCLEX in July. Thank you for your feedback!

    UWorld?

    Hello everyone! I have heard really good reviews about UWorld. I am currently in my last semester of nursing school and I feel I should start preparing for the NCLEX. I know several peers of mine who have already purchase UWorld and have begun practicing. I was wondering if anyone has used UWorld, and if so, what package would you recommend? I see one for 180 days valued for $249. I was just curious if it is worth it? Thank you!

    New job as NA

    Hello everyone, I am currently on orientation as a newly hired NA. I am in nursing school and graduate May 2019 with my BSN. So far orientation has been okay. The nurses seem nice and helpful. It is a very busy unit and often understaffed. I am starting to panic because there is a lot of documentation and I am afraid I am going to mess something up or forget to do something. I know once I am done with orientation I will be on my own and I am definitely nervous! Any advice??? Thank you!

    Nursing student looking for a job at a hospital. Any advice?

    Oh I am sorry to hear that, but that is wonderful you have kept close contact with the HR recruiter. That is such a big help! I was thinking about calling the human resources department in a few days to check on the status of my application. I actually just applied to two other nursing assistant jobs earlier today. I ended up getting an email from one of the hospitals I applied to last week letting me know the position is filled. Although I was upset, I am happy that they ACTUALLY got back to me. So I ended up applying for another open position I saw. In the email they also said they would contact me if another position I am qualified for becomes available. Good luck on your job search! I am currently working in retail as well (it isn't easy haha). But eventually we will be nurses! :)

    Nursing student looking for a job at a hospital. Any advice?

    Oh wow, that is wonderful. Congratulations!!! I know it is difficult sometimes because I am surrounded by a bunch of my peers who say they "have connections" since they know family and friends who work in the medical field. I am actually the first one in my family going to college for nursing, therefore, I do not know anyone who is involved in the medical field. I will keep looking and applying. I am trying to stay positive and maybe I will find something when I least expect it. Thanks so much for your advice!

    Nursing student looking for a job at a hospital. Any advice?

    That's a good idea. I didn't even think of it! Does that stand for "Patient Care Technician?" I am pretty sure I have seen those job listings as I have been searching for nursing assistant jobs. I do have one clinical instructor who I was close with. Maybe I should ask her what she thinks. Thanks for the ideas! :)

    Nursing student looking for a job at a hospital. Any advice?

    No, I do not have a CNA certification. Honestly, I didn't realize there was a difference until I started doing research. I have been applying to nursing assitant positions that do not require a certification. I guess it's just really competitive, and that's why I'm also struggling to find something! I know several of my peers have found nursing assistant jobs. I was unsure if I should get a certification too, but there are some positions that will say "certification, or completion of nursing fundamentals course in four year nursing program." Those are the kind of nursing assistant positions you should look to apply to! I don't know if I want to receive a certification since next May I will already be graduated with my bachelor's degree. I am currently looking for a per diem position so I don't have to stress as much during my last year of nursing school. But that's also a good idea. One of my friend's mom worked in a hospital as a receptionist her last year before graduating from nursing school and she actually landed a job at that same hospital. It's good to get your foot in the door! Best of luck to you! :)

    Nursing student looking for a job at a hospital. Any advice?

    That's good to know, thank you! I think I've only applied to acute care facilities.
  13. Hello all, I have officially finished spring semester of nursing school. At this time next year I will be graduated from nursing school with my bachelors in nursing. I am excited, but also nervous at the same time. I do not feel at all prepared (nor do I expect to feel prepared since this is all new). As the summer is approaching I have been looking for career opportunities in the hospital as a nursing assistant. Several nursing students at the college I go have found nursing assistant jobs at local hospitals, however, I am struggling to find one. My problem is I waited too long because I was so determined I would get the externship I applied for. I went on three interviews and I really thought I would get a position. Unfortunately, I was a little over confident. Since I did not get the externship I have been applying for nursing assistant jobs day by day. I have not received any callbacks, so I am not sure what else to do. I really wanted to gain some experience in the medical field and I thought this was the best way to do so. It seems like a lot of the hospitals I have applied to don't leave a number I can call to check on the status of my application (another problem I am having). I am not sure if I should just continue to apply, or if I should call human resources..? I don't want to be annoying, but unsure of what else I should do. Any advice? Has anyone else experienced the same problem? Thank you!

    Study tips for Pharmcology?

    Yes haha I meant to say *side effects! Whoops. Thanks for the tips!! I will definitely do what you said for when I start studying for the final. I appreciate it :)

    Study tips for Pharmcology?

    Hello! My program combines Pharmacology and Pathophysiology into one class, so it's a little rough. I took part 1 of pharm/patho last semester and did really well, however I am struggling with part 2 of pharm/patho. The tests have gotten harder and contain 7-8 select all that apply questions out of 25 questions, which is a lot I feel. At this point I feel like I will not succeed if I don't find another way to study before finals. Does anyone have any study tips on recognizing symptoms associated with drugs?
