  1. New grad RN jobs in Minneapolis area

    HCMC will typically hire new ADN RN's, but it does help to have someone internally who is able to forward your resume onto the hiring managers. I know Healtheast is very particular about wanting their staff to have a BSN, but the others I'm not quit...
  2. MSU Moorhead RN-BSN vs St. Scholastica vs UND vs Mankato...

    When I started the program last fall we were the first class to endure the changes that had been made to the program. I am hopeful that they now have the kinks worked out of the program across the board. For all of the core nursing classes there we...
  3. Why don't I have a job right now?

    I am right there with you. I passed my boards last August and have yet to find a job. I have applied for hundreds of jobs since last August and have not even got an interview yet. I also had my resume completely revamped in March and still have he...
  4. RN-BSN in MN

    I also went to St. Scholastica and I had to take one religion class which focused more on spirituality than Catholicism. The nun that taught my class was very interesting and open minded, never judging. The overall 9 month RN-BSN program contains a...
  5. MSU Moorhead RN-BSN vs St. Scholastica vs UND vs Mankato...

    I am currently in the process of completing the RN to BSN at St. Scholastica. I looked at other programs also, but the driving force behind why I chose St. Scholastica was the time frame in which you complete the degree. It is a 9 month on-line pro...
  6. NCLEX Results Minnesota

    I took my test on a Thursday last summer and my results were posted to the BON online license verification by 8 am the next day.
  7. Nursing Schools in Minnesota

    I believe most nursing schools waiting lists are at least a year long. I completed my RN in May at LSC in Duluth. I was on the waiting list for a year before being admitted. The one thing that you need to also make sure that you consider when look...
  8. how long does it take an adn to get a bsn

    The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN offers a 9 month online RN to BSN program. It can be pretty intense at times, but the reward in the end will be well worth it. You do have to have your AA degree completed prior to starting their program...
  9. Another option that you could try is to listen to A&P lectures online. Dr. C from St. Scholastica actually posts his A&P lectures to Itunes and they are very good. I found them to be very helpful when I took A&P, I also listen to pieces...
  10. Advice for an AD

    Most AD programs will require you to have A&P and Chemistry completed before you can even apply to a program. I am not sure what the waiting list situation is in the Twin Cities, but I know that LSC's program in Duluth is going back to a waiting...
  11. Roll Call, LPN to RN Students!!!

    Hello, my name is Jessica and I recently passed the PN-NCLEX . It is hard for me to actually adapt to calling myself a nurse. I will be starting the RN program at the end of August, I can't wait. Good luck to everyone!
  12. LSC/Duluth

    I am not from the Duluth area so I am not sure where Bixby's is. I do not know the reasoining behind why they are going to the GPA method, but I do know that most of the schools in the cities have gone this route also. The GPA method of allowing f...
  13. LSC/Duluth

    With a 4.0 I am guessing that you will be just fine. For your first semester I strongly recommend a rolling backpack. We spent close to $600 on 12 books and 5 instructor packets for our first semester books, although many of them are now being use...
  14. Minnesota Roll Call

    I am from the Twin Cities, but currently living in the northwoods of MN. I am in my second semester of the LPN program at LSC in Duluth and hoping to be admitted to the RN program for Fall of 2008. I can't wait to move back to the cities, I miss th...
  15. LSC/Duluth

    I am currently enrolled in the LPN program at LSC and am hoping that my GPA is good enough for the 2nd year, which is the RN program. The only recommendation that I can give is to make sure and keep your grades up. For the second year of the progra...
