    Mt San Jacinto RN Program

    I went to MSJC yes I needed a 4.0 to get in there were a couple people who did not buy luck of the draw, so don't let that discourage you from trying if you don't have a 4.0 just try your hardest either way. It's a good program, you get out what you put in like any other schooling. There are some really good instructors and some really bad, again like all programs. It's not the best but by far I am sure it's not the worst! It's very grueling especially the first semester, but you will still have time for yourself and your family, just work really hard to find that balance. good luck.

    I talked to a recruiter at Loma Linda, she was so nice really lovely! She said times are difficult now but please keep applying to any job that interests you. Each application is looked at individually so if you apply to one unit the other units will not be seeing it, so if you see something you like just apply, and personally call the recruiter and show your interest. I went to a job fair this summer and was so turned off by San Diego Hospitals they were so negative and wouldn't give me the time of day. Loma Linda, and County riverside, all agreed times were tough and they were not hiring but at least, they were honest and said please keep applying! They didn't want to burn any bridges with new grads and were very positive. So I say just keep plugging away and keep on the follow up! I have many classmates who have been successful this past semester with that technique.

    I am starting there next week. They had an overwhelming response to the new graduate program, and they had very few openings. I Think you should keep trying and keep plugging away it is very difficult right now but I have seen my cohorts be offered jobs that we thought were closed. Keep up with all the new grad positions through this link. http://www.canursingresource.com/

    I am not an LVN, but I completed the MSJC, RN program 12/09. The LVN, at MSJC seems to be a really good program, friends that have gone through it really liked it, and the nurses that I have worked with who transfered over to the RN transition program, really knew their stuff! they have a full time and a part time option if you are already a CNA. Good luck
  5. I took the test on the 15 and passed, I finished school 12/18, but took some time before studying, I really cracked down after the first of the year. My date was set for 01/26 but moved it up because the anxiety of the test was doing more harm then good. As for what I studied, my game plan was to take Saunders NCLEX book and go over all the topics we skipped, or brushed over, I also went over all my lab values and charts I made during my 2 years of nursing. Then I just dove in. Goodluck
