    New Grad Can't Find Work

    Yay! Congratulations! 🎉 I was wondering if you had any advice? I recently passed my NCLEX and didn’t realize how hard it was to find a job RN.

    Oregon Long Term Care Nursing

    Hello, I currently work as a CNA at a post acute/ long term care faculty and the link you posted is correct.

    Hello, Yes, rotations are still being done at a daycare. Many nursing schools are having a hard time finding placements at a hospital. This is because there is a lack of hospitals that are allowing students to work with newborns. You actually learn a lot more in a daycare facility vs a hospital.

    Hi there! The workload is manageable. I have a couple of students in my cohort who work part/full time and they've passed the classes. It honestly depends on how you manage your time since most of the didactic is online. Most module assignments are due Saturday at 11:59 PM and you have an entire week to work on the assignments. I had a girl who committed from WA and she said it was very stressful and tiring to drive back and forth. She then relocated to OR to be closer to campus. I can see if I still have my old scheduled so you can get a rough idea of how many times you need to be on campus. DM and let me know if that's something you're interested in.

    @kellymarie1537 your first semester clinical are only 8 hours, 6/630am-2pm at a long term facility. Second semester are 12 hours AM shifts at a hospital. Third semester varies because you do have it your rotation in community and half in peds/ob. And fourth semester is 12 hours shift, the time depends on where you place for your senior practicum. During your first semester, you’re on campus a lot roughly 2-3 days a week. because they front load your lab skills. You also go on campus to take all your exams as well as SIMS. DM if you have more questions.

    @student55 I think the online component is manageable. There's are a lot of people in my cohort who are working full to part-time and they seem to be doing fine in the course. Most modules starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday, which is when your homework is due. I think the clinical rotation experience depends on your clinical instructor. I had an AMAZING instructor therefore I had a really good experience. Some of my classmates didn't have a good instructor so they didn't have a pleasant experience. Since the didactics are online, there's alot of self-taught that goes on. Sometimes the professors hold collabs (online Q&A) to help clarify concepts. I think that the program has improved tremendously since they've been accredited but there is still work that needs to be done.

    Hello! I'm currently in the program right and I can tell you that the program has improved a lot since it first started. As for the religion course, it depends on which one you take. There's one that gears more toward nursing and the other doesn't. You do not have to be religious to do well in the class. Feel free to DM if you have more questions.
