  1. Hey myRN85, congrats to you also. I work in one of the ambulatory clinics (substance abuse & psych) I love it M-F 7-3 and no weekends because I started as an LPD and took the pharm exam when I was first hired I was wave from taking it by nursing education. I'm so happy from what I understand the pharm exam has changed since I took it 6 years ago I'm sure you will do fine remember we passed the boards. I hope your experience with HR was better than mine smh. I just checked my people soft at work and I saw the salary change will start on Sunday.

  2. Hi, currently work at NYP Cornell as an LPN but not for long I'm now an RN and will be in the orientation next week. I have an ADN but bid have to sign a contract that I will complete my BSN in 2 years which I have already started. I got the upgrade because the clinic I work in is so specialized and I have been there for 6 years. You must have a BSN to be considered. It took almost 5 months for this upgrade with all the red tape and as I said I've been working here for 6 years but saying all of that it is a really great place to work. The opportunities are endless, great benefits and tuition reimbursement is $12,000 per year for nursing, and starting salary is 78,153 base pay not including night diff. I wish everyone good luck.:up:

  3. I used the NCLEX-RN Alternate-Formate Questions 5th ed. by Lippincott one of my Prof. recommended it....I aslo used Saunders review and did there questions from the disc, NCLEX 3500, LaCharity and used the qbank from NCSBN which was also very helpful....to be honest after awhile the question from all the sources were so similar, when I did the exam I felt like I was doing one of my qbanks and I felt so relaxed....

  4. I took mine today and my computer shut off at 75 questions....I did the PVT and got the good pop up. The day before my test I woke up early and did only alternate format question ex. sata, math, prioritization....then my boyfriend dragged me out the house and I spent the evening with some friends chicken wings and watching my NY Giants win the superbowl. I'm so happy I did that I was well relaxed for my exam this am....when taking the exam just read your questions twice before you look at the answers them answer the question. I'm sure you will do fine you got thru school right!!! just look at this as another test and relax :) believe it will come back to you....good luck :up:

  5. Took the NCLEX -RN this morning at 8:00 am in NYC.....my computer shut off at 75 questions with the majority being SATA I also had a chart review question, 4 put in order and lots of prioritization...thank goodness for the LaCharity book and the alternate-format questions book by Lippincott:up:...well of course i did PVT and got the good pop up, I did it again 3 hrs later and there was that good pop up again :yeah:Thank you Helene Fuld College of Nursing for having me well prepared for this exam :) and to my co-worker Karen P. thank you so much for you support from the start to finish, I don't think I could have done it without you.....by they way today is my birthday and I Just gave myself the best present ever....

  6. Let me start by saying that I just graduated from HF this past Sunday Nov.13!!!!! The entrance exams you would have to take if you were entering any college except for the nursing one....the nursing entrance exam is a way of testing out of fundamental nursing courses....the sci 101 in my opinon helps to prepare you for the program itself, you can always challenge the sci101....many people who attend HF including myself have been out of school for awhile and this course get your brain working again..lol...I find the money to be a small price to pay for my future as an RN...The program itself is not easy...you must READ your BOOK and do as many questions as possible....don't listen to the negative just stay focussed and you will be successful...I stayed away from the clicks and did my thing...I spent many of days and evenings in Barnes N Noble and it paid off in a big way..I hear so many complaints about HF but I really don't have any...It goes so fast by the time you turn around it's done...I suggest you take the step and you will be a RN before you know it :)

  7. I'm 45 I will graduating in november :yeah:. I was a LPN for 14 years and decided to go back once my daughter was a junior in high school...most people did not even realize how old I was until I said something one day and they looked at me in amaizment..lol..my gpa is a 3.4 and I cant wait to finish...good luck with your studies :yeah:

  8. I am also glad that you cleared up the misconceptions about HFCN...I am a current student and absolutely love it there. The program is made for adults and you must work hard and put your best effort forward if you plan to succeed. The prof. are good and always willing to help you if you don't understand something. I like the fact that it is small and you meet some really good people doing the same thing you are. Like any other school there will be those who are not satified. For me I am so happy that I choose to come here. The neighbourhood is fine, where located right next to this beautiful church and accross from a park. I take the bus at nite and I feel safe. I choose to do the part time 18mth program and will be starting Nsg 221 in April, I can't wait. Any LPN's who are interested I would suggest HFCN. Good luck!!!!
