    Nursing shortage in Texas

    Thanks for responding. Can you tell me why these hospitals are having trouble staffing nurses? I'm just curious.

    Nursing shortage in Texas

    I know this is an old thread. I just want to ask if there is a nursing shortage anywhere in Texas that hospitals in the area are considering sponsorship of foreign nurses. I know that it's become very difficult to seek employment in the US for foreign nurses and I read somewhere that there still is a shortage in certain areas. I want to be proactive in trying to find a job and if you have any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.

    what is the right answer to this question??????

    Correct me if I'm wrong, only universal precautions are necessary for HIV+ patients. So there shouldn't be any problem if the pregnant nurse was assigned to that patient.

    wait a few more days and try the pvt again. the pop up said on hold for 2 days until i got the message contact your member board for more assistance.
  6. I'm a Filipino too but I don't have SSN. I just took the NCLEX so that I can move on from all the exams before I try to find a job as an RN. I took the exam December 8 and I was told the wait would be around 3 weeks by some friends so I still have a few weeks.

    Pearsonvue "Trick". Is this TRUE? Does it Work Every Time?

    2 days.
  8. I am curious why the NCSBN Learning Extension is not mentioned very much in this forum. I found it really helpful and I also found the questions in the quizzes and chapters similar to some of the questions I got in the NCLEX-RN. Plus, the 3-week program only costs $50 if I'm not mistaken. This is more for people who know the content but need practice in answering NCLEX-type questions.

    just took the test

    ^I don't think it's the first try that counts the most. These review programs help you learn how to go about answering questions and at the same time, learn things that you might not have known about prior to the program. The important thing is to try to go deeper and understand the rationales instead of trying to memorize the answers to specific questions because obviously the chances of getting the exact same questions on your nclex exam would be very slim. I'm no expert and I haven't received the official letter yet, but I firmly believe that nursing or not, that's how you make full use of your time (and money) on these review books and programs.
  10. Can we revive this thread for all those awaiting results from California BRN? Has anyone else received the results from the mail and when did you take the test? Thanks!

    I finally got the good pop up! It doesn't say on hold anymore! I hope I pass! @AHMC09 - Thanks for the words of encouragement!

    Thanks! I really hope so. I took the NCLEX-RN yesterday so It hasn't been too long of a wait.

    It looks like I'm one of the unlucky ones who have to wait a few more days. I got the HOLD message.
  14. I'm scheduled to take the NCLEX-RN exam on December 7 and I just want to make sure that I won't run into any problems that day. I have a long name and I was 1 letter short of completing it for the Pearson Vue registration so it does not completely match my ID. The last letter of my first name is excluded in my ATT. Should I do something to fix that? The exam is just a week away and I'm freaking out so I thought I'd ask here. Thanks in advance.

    Getting NCLEX-RN results in California

    @bruzee28 - Couldn't they just tell you if you did pass or not by phone? I think that's just cruel. You've been waiting for over 7 months for those results. Or aren't they allowed to say?

    Taking the NCLEX in MANILA (Help please)

    Anyone taking the NCLEX anytime in October or November? I haven't received my eligibility yet, but I'm expecting it soon. How's the schedule? There's a rumor that the testing center is backed up for months. Is that true?
