  1. I am in a similar situation, but in homecare peds and infusion visiting nurse. Would you recommend I get my PALS /ACLS, then take a CCRN review course without the med/surg experience?

    Accepted

    Which school? I'm waiting to hear back from Simmons.

    Anyone else still waiting on Acceptance/Rejections to FNP?

    I applied to Simmons almost 3 weeks ago. I reached out to my counselor for feedback and she said no word yet but have the deposit ready just in case. I am trying, with everything in me, to be patient. This waiting is hard. Love the support from all of you during the wait. Nice to know we are here for each other.

    Should we consider Charlotte?

    I have the same concerns. In order to find a job, I am moving to NC in 6 months. I don't know where to start, but I know this is the right move for me and my family.

    Refresher Course

    It has been 5 years since I graduated from nursing school. In that time, I haven't practiced nursing due to various reasons stemming from health problems to financial hardship (who hasn't suffered from this, right)? I have been working in the financial industry. In any event, I am having a hard time finding employment in nursing. Would it be advised for me to take a refresher course? Keep in mind I passed the NCLEX and took a BLSC within the last two months. I ask because these courses are quite pricey and I don't want to waste my money if taking a course really would not help. Thanks

    Rutgers NCLEX Review

    I plan on taking the course in February.

    Returning to bedside nursing after 9 years!

    I am in the same boat, but I have been away for about 5 years. I have a few questions, if you don't mind. How long was your refresher course? Did you take the course for your own confidence level or do you think you needed it to make yourself more marketable? I am two weeks from signing up for a 3 week course myself. Thanks, in advance, for your response.

    Refresher course starts tomorrow

    What state are you in? I have been trying to find an refresher course in NY and NJ and no one is getting back to me. Thanks

    To all the New Grads on the Job Hunt

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have a follow up question for anyone who can help. It has been 5 years since I graduated from nursing school. In that time, I haven't practiced nursing due to various reasons stemming from health problems to financial hardship (who hasn't suffered from this, right)? In any event, I am having a hard time finding employment in nursing. Would it be advised for me to take a refresher course? Keep in mind I passed the NCLEX and took a BLSC within the last two months.

    Any hospital hiring new grads? anywhere in the country?

    I am interested in moving to Albany NY. Do you know if they are hiring new grads?

    Have you tried the "Men in Nursing" forum on this site? I think it may help a bit. Good Luck

    How long does it take to get your license??

    @Olivia28 - in New York?
  14. MsDiva812

    Applying in person or through online which is better?

    I was advised by one of my counselors that when applying for a job (especially as a new grad) we (I received notice that I passed on 11/13/09) should do both. Apply online, but back it up by going in to the facility in person to reinforce your interest in person - *disclaimer* - providing you can get in to the place.

    Where do you put your STUFF

    I wear a fanny pack. It's very handy but can get in the way at times when trying to squeeze into tight spots. I love it, though, everything's in one place.

    Multiple Test Takers

    :coollook:Can new potential employers find out the number of times a candidate has taken the NCLEX?

    Multiple Test Takers

    I called the NY BON and the lady said no. You can volunteer the info if you like but employers cannot access it on their own.
  18. I have taken the nclex a few times. Can the number of times I've taken the boards be revealed without my consent
  19. In New York State, they cannot find out unless the applicant volunteers that info.
