  1. Anyone looking for a job that entails patient care at various Govt clinics. The clientele are Govt employees, but you are a contractor. Depending on the clinic where one works, it mainly centers on clients walking in, not feeling well, want BP, BS checked, normally very basic stuff. As well respond to building emergencies. Some clinics do work physicals that include Hearing/Audio tests, mask fitting, EKG, Spirometry. All training is provided and it isnt that difficult. Most health units are in the DC area, a few in Baltimore. I believe they are even looking for a RN in Norfolk. The pay is fair, benefits are so-so (just being honest) The employer is Spectrum Healthcare Resources. PM me if you have any questions. I am not a recruiter, just a RN that works at one of the health units.

  5. I had something similar happen to me last yr. I had an interview then a week later a walk thru of the unit was set up. In between that time I had another job interview and they offered it to me on the spot and I took it. I emailed the other place back and explained to them that they had offered me the job and as much as would have enjoyed working at their unit, I felt this position was a good fit as I knew others working their. Just keep it polite and they will appreciate that you took the time and notified them

    Help Me Decide

    I'm not a School nurse, but do Occupational health which has its similarities,lol You mention in one school you would be working with a RN you like and 1 not so much. If your spending a lot of time with someone....best to choose the 1 you enjoy working for.......

    Advice?

    Whats to be embarrassed about? Some people dont get on with their lives until much later on in their life, and some never do!! Not all programs require one to be a CNA prior to being a nurse. One should take the time and check out the different schools...LPN..RN....all have different criteria. Gl

    I was told different things about the # of classes...was confusing.....I didnt have to take 2 of the "nursing" classes (ethics and the community 1) but I still had to take 2 more "anything" classes...and they were useless..1 was a very very basic research class,lol When it comes down to it..it is a $$$$$ grab. I took those 2 anything classes after Capstone. Some say u cant double up right away.....but I know those that have. Some were able to switch profs easily, while others had issues....it is what it is Congrats Howlee....Its a nice feeling to have it done with

    Summer jobs for school nurses

    not a school nurse, but I enjoy this forum...I do Occupational health at Govt health units(were contractors) and I know a few of the PRN staff that work during the summer are school nurses...not sure if they had been full/part time prior to being PRN....

    Need MD fingerprinting authorization numbers

    Thats what I did..I was residing in MD at the time.....I had no issues...well I did 6 months later....somehow I had not paid enough...so they put a hold on my license.....not a good thing as I was suppose to work that day (got a letter in the mail) Drove to the office and handed over a check...took a few days to get cleared up.......still not exactly sure on how I had not paid enough...weird.

    Capstone is not always the last hurdle.....I had to take 2 "anything classes" and did those after Capstone.....Wish I had taken them prior to Capstone,lol I graduated in 2015, so there may be more changes, but those I mentioned were the ones that have been mentioned on here. Its a for profit-school...so Im guessing they will take your $$$$ lol

    when it comes to grading.....I honestly think it must be fairly difficult to fail,lol Well besides Stat class. Why you ask? In 1 of my "anything" classes I had to take, it had a mixture of different students in it. Pretty sure some were just starting out but there were some others that were just finishing up. 1 of the assignments we had to do was mark another students paper, then we had to post it for everyone to see. It was pretty mind blowing on how poorly some people wrote. It was very obvious they had no clue what APA was....was an interesting assignment, lol I am fortunate my wife is a good proof reader. I think many just don't proof read their work either.....Just sound half intelligent and one should do fine.....and buy PERRLA....great for ur citations and if your not sure on how to do, simply email PERRLA and the staff will get back to you within minutes. do you have any more class Ilikeletters, or are you 100% done? I wished I had taken those 2 "anything" classes prior to Capstone, sure would have felt better hitting that SUBMIT button!! congrats

    whats different? I believe the religion class has been combined with Ethics.....Stats seems to have changed, but the biggest difference is CAPSTONE.....its now a 10 week class and totally different than the previous 5 week capstone.... Welcome back
