  1. Hi all, I recently had a phone interview for an assistant nurse manager position on a mother baby unit. I have 7 years of nursing experience, 4 yrs of that in mother baby, charge nurse experience, but this is my first time applying for this type of position. The manager set up a second step of the interview process in which I meet with the night shift staff (this position is on night shift), as well as other department managers in various units such as NICU, peds, l&d, and the director of women’s services. I am pretty nervous! Any advice?

    Unemployed New Nurses Would Be Wise To Remember These Equations

    NCLEX Rules - Please Follow Them!

    I took the NCLEX-PN last year and I was a nervous wreck. I got there 3 hours early, and darn near had a meltdown The woman in the testing center told me "take a deep breath, and relax" twice! Lol. I'm taking the NCLEX-RN soon, and I doubt I'll be as clumsy & panicky as I was last year..at least I'm hoping I won't be lol!

    Employment Scams And Fake Job Postings

    Craigslist can be a really helpful site, but you definitely have to watch out for the scam ads. I think you can report suspicious ones.

    Scam Schools And Diploma Mills

    I agree. I think Everest is a scam! I know a few people who graduated & thankfully they found jobs but they're low paying IMO(average pay: $14/hr)considering the debt they are in from this school. Interesting, thanks to youtube I discovered the young lady in the commercial was NOT an actor. But she had a scholarship to attend Everest. And she mentioned on Dr. Phil that she received another scholarship to go to nursing school.

    How To Become A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)

    That is beyond scary. I read one post on the CNA forum a couple of yrs back about a guy who was thinking of going into an "advanced PCT" program that cost about $15 grand! I don't think these type of programs exist in my area..but boy oh boy are there a lot of medical assistant programs..but that's a totally different topic for another day lol.

    How To Become A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)

    It all depends on the area. When I was looking at a CNA program 4 yrs ago, the community colleges cost about $1500, took 3 months & they had waiting lists. I decided to go to an independent CNA program (which I made sure was listed on the state's BON website) and it cost $925. It was just 4 weeks long & I passed my written & skills exams with flying colors. I enjoyed my time as a CNA & the experiences I had definitely benefited me in nursing school.

    Scam Schools And Diploma Mills

    I wouldn't consider U of Phoenix a scam school either. Now Kaplan on the other hand:uhoh21:

    Scam Schools And Diploma Mills

    I have seen threads on this forum about this school on the DE Nursing Program forum. Check those out & you can get an idea on how the program is. But if it's listed on the BON website,it's fine.

    Lessons Learned - Choose Your School Wisely

    I don't think the OP was kicked out..I think she walked away in a huff, sort of like "I'll show you!" kind of way.

    Our school gave us 3 chances on our dosage calculation exam too :uhoh21: And we only need to make a 90% as well.
