  1. I am a nursing student so I don't have advice to give, but I just wanted to say that I completely understand why you would have been playing up your bartending work. The advice to leave out your personal life (wise though it probably is) makes me sad. Good luck!

    New Grad Needs Advice - Hostile Work Environment

    Is it normal for a new grad to be a charge nurse? I can understand why your black co-workers might be resentful having a brand new white nurse as their supervisor. This doesn't, however, justify lying about you. It sounds really hard and stressful. I hope you can find some resolution.

    Check out this resource: https://www.blackandbrownskin.co.uk/mindthegap There you can download a book full of photos of clinical signs in black and brown skin. Hope that helps!

    Patient-Police Statements

    Everyone has the right to have a lawyer present during questioning. Unfortunately not everyone is aware of that. I think it would be appropriate to inform patients about this and tell them that they do not have to answer any questions without a lawyer present. I would absolutely intervene if a cop was trying to interview a patient who was in pain/not fully conscious/delirious/drunk/high.

    This is kind of a silly question, but on the contract signature page, it didn't seem like there was a way to actually sign the contract beyond entering your SSN, security question answer, and application password at the bottom, right? And then when you get to the final page, the contract is blank where there would be a signature... Is that everyone else's experience?

    I think they will be doing credit checks going forward. Perhaps that earlier one was related to federal student financial aid? If you’re a finalist, I wouldn’t worry about not having had a check show up yet. Sounds like most haven’t, including myself. 🙂 To everyone still waiting on word, don’t lose hope and good luck to you. 💜

    HRSA Nurse Corps Scholarship 2020-2021

    @PublicHealthNurse96 My background is mostly social justice/environmental activism and some humanitarian aid work. I have good grades and my EFC is zero. My only concern is that one of my recommenders didn't put a signature (electronic or handwritten) on her letter for me--she just typed her name. She shared the letter with me after the application closed and I'm terrified that my application will get rejected because of this tiny error... If so, I just want to know before I start classes! 😩 But, oh well, we can't control everything in this crazy world... I'm going to just try to forget about it and, in the meantime, apply for other scholarships. I hope you get it! Best of luck in your program. 🙂

    I'm also an ABSN applicant. Crossing my fingers very tight as this scholarship for me means the difference between attending or not, more or less. I know two people who have gotten the scholarship and two who did not. Of the two who got it, one was an ABSN student, and one is a regular BSN student. Of the two who didn't get it, one had an EFC above the tier 1 threshold and the other was a diploma program student (she thinks that is why she didn't get it). Anyway... good luck to all!
  12. Hello! I wanted to start this thread so that applicants can update each other on application status, etc. Likely we'll have no news for several months. Good luck to everyone!

    @calliope26 That is pretty much what I suspected. Thanks for your reply!

    Hospice as first RN job?

    Hello! I am set to start nursing school next fall. My current specialty interest lies in hospice/palliative care. I have a little experience in a LTC facility for my CNA clinical. I am curious whether it is ever possible to be hired into hospice as a new nurse? Is hospice a rare interest for new nurses?
