    Is it time to leave Arizona?

    I just can't believe how in just a few short years, the job market switched gears like it has! So incredible and incredibly sad for those who have invested so much time and $. But, I am sure things will be brighter just ahead!

    Just curious, is Banner forgiving you of any contract or stipulation that your schooling had as far as working for them or owing them for your education?

    Curious about the new grads not finding jobs?

    Even though I have decided to pursue another healthcare field, I did talk to a friend who recently graduated from an LPN program here locally. She said each student except one in her graduating class had a job lined up. Does that mean it's easier to find an LPN position as opposed to an RN position? Interesting....

    Fortis College

    One of the most important things you need to find out is will another school, say one of the MCC's accept your classes from Fortis! It is VERY common for state schools to NOT accept transcripts from private schools. So, if you plan to continue your education this is a deal breaker in MY book! Don't ask the school you are attending, call the schools you plan on attending afterward. Also, 10 months to wait for a spot at the SWSC is not long (my opinion) and they will tell you 10 months, but most people I know that have applied, get a call for the earlier start date. It's happened to me not twice, but three times!

    Curious about the new grads not finding jobs?

    This is exactly why I decided to find another healthcare dicipline that would still be in demand. I have gone back and forth about whether or not to pursue nursing. I am happy with the decision I made, although had the economy been different over the past few years, I probably would have continued down this path....

    Advice...

    I wish I had an answer for you. Some would say getting into any healthcare job would be a step in the right direction. I worked as a Medical Assistant and that is what got me on the road of nursing. However, I have recently decided pursuing nursing right now is not the right decision for me. I actually have been in sales the last 3 years and recently have been contemplating getting into the Insurance industry. Maybe I could pick you brain on that one. But, as far as you working for so much less, not sure it would make a huge difference for you once you are done with school and looking for a new grad position. It depends on what type of nursing you are wanting to pursue. Maybe while you are still making great money, you can start saving and then once you actually get into nursing school, you can take a low paying position at a hopsital? In my opinion that would not only enhance your chances of getting a spot in a program faster, but then also help you in landing a new grad position. Lots of questions when first getting into nursing, but every road is different for each person. Good luck to you!

    Sacramento area nursing programs

    I may have misread that then. But, as an LPN what would that mean?

    Sacramento area nursing programs

    I was trying to gather info about applying to an ADN program for those that already have associates degrees in applied science. Somehow I understood that if you have such a degree you can be exempt from the pre-req's, am I unserstanding that correctly?
