    Cal State East Bay

    Last year the lowest GPA accepted was 3.8. Every year it depends on the pool of applicants. Hope that helps.

    CSUEB clinicals

    I teach the psych rotation at Herrick. As far as I know, we've never had a student assaulted. However, it's always best to walk to your car with others.

    How much do psych techs make vs nurses?

    Where I work, in the SF Bay Area at a union hospital, RN's make around $50 and LPT's $30.

    Psychiatric-Mental Health Certification

    I took it in October. Meds, learning theories, Family therapy theories, cognitive therapy. Pretty broad based exam. Reminded me of the N-Clex, tough questions but score to pass is not high.

    Reentry Program for Nurses

    Are there refresher programs in the SF Bay Area? I'm a Psych RN that would like to try something else in a few years.

    Male Nursing Salaries

    It's true that you'd earn twice as much in California, but you'll also pay twice as much for your house, so it evens out in the end.

    Male Nursing Salaries

    Where I live starting wage is a little over $40/hr. There is no bonus for having a penis. lol But I'm still glad I have it.

    Psych nursing certification exam

    I'm planning to do this as well. Does anyone out there have this certification? Was it worth it? Where I work it only gives you a 2% increase in pay, so most don't bother. Do potential employers value it? Is it difficult to maintain?

    Waiting for California NCLEX Results...

    If you took it last tuesday, your license will show up either today or Saturday. Good Luck! Remember, you can take it again in 6 weeks if you didn't pass - not the end of the world.
  14. I'm interested in this as well.

    What happens if a nurse is attacked?

    [A way that our unit deals with it is that we always have a male staff member on each shift. I'm that male staff. Now I'm on modified duty because a patient slammed a cabinet on my foot, breaking my toe and causing serious trauma to my foot.
