    risks to loose my license

    hi guys, i need your advise. i'm getting off orientation next week (forced to do so). i feel i'm not ready yet. i tried to speak out and prolong my orientation time but nobody wants to hear that. my hospital is very short on staff and they want me to work on a regular basis as soon as possible. another problem is that there will be no nurses on my shift who have been working on my unit for a # of years. there will be 3 nurses total: 2 new grads + 1 "agency" nurse, or 2 "agency" nurses + myself. i'm very frustrated and i think that this environment is very unsafe to practice in. i would appreciate any advise or opinion. Jess

    Ncsbn 3-week Or 5-week Course ?

    course is the same even if you sign up for 5 weeks. it only depends how much time do you have to study every day. if you study little by little i sugest to sign up for 5 weeks. if you have lots of time to study then 3 weeks is enough.

    fed up- cant get a job

    i graduated in may 2007. failed nclex a few times. finally got my license in october. applied to every hospital in my area. still have no offer. very frustrated right now. i had one inteview though not so long ago. it was very unprofessional. there were asked questions such as why i couldn't pass my board exam. in addition i don't have much of working experience. i was stay-home mom (3 children). i'm very frustrated. :(

    Pregnant New Grad needs advice

    i've just learned that it's not easy to find a RN job several months after graduation. nobody wants to admit it, but it's true.

    A NCLEX question

    1 gr = 60 mg (you have to know this formula for your nclex) !!!! there are x (10 gr) = 600 mg so you give 2 tabs !!!

    Is Kaplan Review Course Worth It?

    i didn't use kaplan. i think it costs a lot of money and you still don't know if you will pass. saunders book is a good book to use for a review. i also recomend www.learningext.com (3 weeks-49$).
