    I want to be a Nursery Nurse

    Most hospitals are asking for a bachelor of science in nursing. For nursery you would need NRP and STABLE certifications. Both one day courses. Good luck.

    "The Golden Hour"

    I think it is a really good idea. Unfortuantely at my hospital we do not have it. Although from 0630-0700 if there is an admission or transfer we only take the vital signs, and a quick assessment to make sure they are stable. If the patient is from P...
  6. I dressed in black pants, and a nice dressy sweater that looked nice. I also did hair, and make up professionally. I do not think there is a need to wear a suit. Just dress to impress.

    Many nurses in So. Cal are having a hard time finding any nursing jobs. With a year or so experience you could then move on. I do not know the current going rate for LVN's in assisted living. I would consider it. Good Luck !
