    Can't find RN job!! HELP!1

    That is a great idea! I actually live in Long Island, I didn't know why Stony brook didn't come to mind - thanks!

    Can't find RN job!! HELP!1

    That is true! Any nursing experience beats no nursing experience. Only thing I am nervous about going to a place that isn't a hospital because I won't be able to learn skills and things as I would if I were to work in a hospital - where I would get a more extensive and thorough orientation. Unfortunately, relocation isn't an option for me at this time, but I do live in an area with a lot of new graduates, so that could be part of the issue

    Can't find RN job!! HELP!1

    Hi, I am a new graduate RN from NY and I just graduated from a BSN program in May and passed my NCLEX in July. I have been having a really hard time finding a job. I haven't even had one phone call or one interview. It's really discouraging seeing all of my friends start their careers and putting their fresh skills into use, and I feel like I'm losing mine 😞. Is there any advice anyone has that would help? I've had my resume reviewed by professors, I've emailed old professors asking if they knew of any openings and I don't get any responses. Please help! Any advice would be great.

    Are Braids Professional?

    Thank you so much!! ❤️ I live in NY, so hopefully this won't be too much of a problem.
  6. Hi! I'm 21 years old and I'm in my last year of nursing school - graduating in May 2020. I'm mixed race (Black and some white), and currently have in braids like the picture I attached (this is not me, this is a picture I got off Pinterest ). I wear these because my hair is super thick and curly, and braids like these help my hair to be more manageable, and help my hair grow. I have gotten braids consistently for about 1 year now. Nobody has said anything to me in Clinical as of yet. I wear the braids up and out of my face for clinical, and obviously keep my hair and the braids clean. Since I will be starting to go on interviews soon, I was wondering if braids like these are considered professional - especially for a new grad looking to be hired. Would wearing braids like these stop me from getting my first job? Thank you for reading!! All opinions welcome 🙂
