  1. I have (I think) a great idea for an invention that would be incredibly useful for nursing staff AND patients, that I don’t think exists, and would be much better than what is currently used. But I’m not an inventor - I’m still in nursing school! An...

    College of Marin Fall 2021

    The first 8 weeks will be “hellish”, because you are going to be adapting to a new schedule, life, and a LOT of material being thrown at you fast and furious! However the professors are all AWESOME and supportive especially if you are communicative ...

    College of Marin Fall 2021

    I hope you get in! The semesters are basically split in two quarters: 2 eight week portions. Your first 8 weeks will be practicing basic skills in the campus skills lab. Then you will have your first clinical rotations during the 2nd 8 weeks of your...

    How do you FIND new grad programs in your area??

    Wow thank you! I will definitely reach out next year when I graduate from my ADN program. I noticed that the UCSF Health new grad program lists ASN, BSN or MSN graduates - do you know if they take ADN program grads? I am at college of Marin. I plan...
  5. Hi all! Im still a first year nursing student, but out of curiosity I’ve tried to search for new grad programs and residencies in my area (the SF Bay Area). I would think there would be a lot of programs like that, but nothing more than one or t...

    New grad straight to OR - bad idea?

    Ornurse12, thank you for your words of encouragement! I am a LONG way out, as I am only in my first semester of nursing school. I do worry that out of school I will need to just take a job to get started and get experience, but then have a difficult...

    OR Internship

    Hi! I wish I had advice for you, just following because my goal is to become an OR nurse someday too (I'm a new RN student so I have a ways to go). I have one question for you: Do you still get paid as an intern? I am just planning for the future...

    9-5 (or 8-5) shifts as a new grad possible?

    Thanks! I am totally open to all areas of nursing. Since I’m just starting nursing school I definitely am leaving myself open to learning about as many areas as possible in the nursing field. School nursing sounds great. My step daughter is a type 1...

    9-5 (or 8-5) shifts as a new grad possible?

    I am starting nursing school this august. Spent the last two years doing pre reqs and taking the TEAS. Luckily my first semester will be low key as I got the 12-hour rotation only 1 day a week. But we will be constantly looking for help while I’m in ...

    9-5 (or 8-5) shifts as a new grad possible?

    Hi Smilingeyes, not a stupid question at all! We have been struggling financially while I’ve been home with our kids, and the timing will have me graduating nursing school once our kids are finishing 2nd and 4th grade - still not quite old enough to...

    9-5 (or 8-5) shifts as a new grad possible?

    Rionoir thank you! Do you mind listing a couple of the specialties you can think of? I am open to anything. I definitely don’t have to work in a hospital.

    9-5 (or 8-5) shifts as a new grad possible?

    Thank you! I have tried, but the only real option will be an Aupair or live-in nanny since my husband is out the door by 6am some days. No babysitter or part time childcare worker seems to want to start work as early as 5:30am, and be done by 8:30a...
  14. I know this is early, as I'm just starting my RN program, however I'm wondering if it is even possible to find a job that does not require overnights or early morning starts right out of nursing school? I am absolutely not opposed to working these s...
