    VA BON

    I dont have any criminal background, was just curious because just like elkpark...I thought all states DID do them and required fingerprints. Thanks again!

    VA BON

    Hello all! Quick question...does Virginia BON do any type of criminal background check at all for first time applicants? I dont see anywhere on their site where it requires sending fingerprints or anything. Just want to make sure before I send my application. Thank you!

    New palm vein technology

    Yes I am referring to taking the actual nclex exam through Pearson. I read somewhere they will be using ONLY the palm vein technology for first time test takers? No fingerprints? Whats the point of this? Is it like another criminal background check?

    New palm vein technology

    Hello all, I was just curious if this new palm vein technology is the ONLY thing they will be using now for first time test takers. Or is it this AND fingerprints as well? Thanks!

    Thank you all so much for your posts. By the way I never had the intention to travel throughout an entire state in one week haha. I am obviously going to travel to the area I have decided on based upon research and have some real estate agent/ rental listing appts to view properties while I am up there. >30yrsRN...thank you for your encouraging words =) Yes I want out of FL very badly. I love the fact that VA has all four seasons...the only weather we have here is hot, hot and hotter :chuckle I am tired of the "city life"...therefore the DC...Northern VA area does not appeal much to me. I have done some research and I am almost sold on Richmond..anyone from there..been there? I have decided to apply for licensure in VA, but take my exam here in FL, so that will give me more time for the move. Anyways this was a quick update post...So busy and hectic with finals for this rotation coming up next week....looking forward to my last course of Leadership though! Thanks again for all your postings, look forward to reading some more... Be back soon with more updates =)
  11. I can only speak for S.Fl...the cost of living is way too high.....even if you find a job as an RN...the cost of living is way too high...I grad in Dec and plan on moving out of state.......dont do it!

    I am moving with my SO, and we both have enough savings for rent and expenses until we get a job...a room wouldn't be an option..I have started to sell most of my furniture... We plan on driving up there and taking only the essentials..and buying new things over there...hence the whole "fresh start". We definitely plan on visiting in December for a good week to check out the area before making the final move. Thanks again for all your posts and suggestions.

    Thank you both so much for your response. Well, nothing in specific is bringing me to Virginia..I do have a couple of friends that have done travel nursing there and have told me they liked it a lot. Plus I dont think ANYWHERE else in the US, has a worse job market than down here...yes its that bad. I am utterly tired of South Florida, I need a fresh start and change of scenery pronto. How much would a nice 2 bedroom apt or townhouse go for in a decent area? lets say East VA and Richmond? Also, I was checking out the board of nursing websites...what is the difference of Virginia and West Virginia...are they two different states? Because there are two different websites and requirements for each...(pardon my ignorance). Thank you so much for taking the time to respond! :loveya:
