  1. Trouble Finding a Job as New Graduate??

    I don't think it really matters if you have an ADN or BSN. Well, except for one hospital that told them they prefer hiring BSN's over ADN's, but would hire an ADN with 6 months experience. This hospital is one of the best in Houston and I guess they...
  2. The most horrible things instuctor's say...

    I had one instructor tell me to "re-think my career choice." And another one basically tell me "I wasn't SMART enough to be a nurse." Well, I showed them. I went on to get my LVN, and just recently graduated from my Transition program to get my RN...
  3. Trouble Finding a Job as New Graduate??

    Still nothing on the horizon! I have heard of internships for new grads, but most of them started right after I graduated. I did see one for St. Lukes, but my HESI score wasn't high enough for them. I have applied to St. Lukes, Memorial Hermann, Me...
  4. Just wanted to ask the many of you that have just graduated that didn't obtain jobs before you graduated if you are having any difficulty finding a job? I just started looking and I am running into the theme of "you don't have any experience as an R...
  5. YIKES! Take NCLEX in less that 12 hours!!!

    I PASSED!!!! Took test on Monday at 8; found out this am. The waiting for horrible. I got 76 questions; 3 all that apply, 1 math, lots of assessing and prioritizing. What a relief. Good luck to all who are about to take and especially those of yo...
  6. Just found out 20mins ago that i passed my boards.

    LizzieJ, RN! How great! Congratulations! This is the news I wanted to hear since I take the NCLEX tomorrow am at 8. I keep telling myself that I will pass the test, that I have the knowledge and capabilities to do it! It's just so hard when so m...
  7. I am trying to remain calm, think positive, and do something other than study at this point. It's really great to see all of the postings regarding the NCLEX and how SO many people felt after taking it; now, if I can just remember that tomorrow. An...
  8. OMG! Just a few days left.

    Hey AnaBanana12! I'm in the same boat as you. I take the test on Monday at 8 am. At this point, all you can do is pray and put it in God's hands. I have studied till I think I can't study anymore. Yesterday, I had done so many questions, that I ...
  9. took NCLEX-PN today

    25 Minutes? Is that like a record or something? Congratulations to you, what a wonderful feeling to have it done. I take the NCLEX in 6 days, and the anticipation is killing me. Best of luck to you now and in the years to come!
  10. OMG Help Me!

    BLUEYESOFTEXASNURSE: I just love that screen name! PearsonVue does post on both Saturdays and Sundays from what I've been told from other classmates. It's supposed to be 48 hours from when you took your test. Hope this helps.
  11. I got 77...does that seem odd?

    I am come to realize I don't think it matters what the number is. The reason I say this is because I have talked to or emailed classmates that have had the following numbers: 75 (yes, many get this number), 170, 261, 265 (yes, some got this many). ...
  12. Anesthesia, memory loss and the NCLEX!

    Hello to all that have tested and PASSED! How exciting. I had to post something because I'm about to come out of my skin and need some words of encouragement, etc. I graduated in May, took the Kaplan review course at the end of May, had an Abdomin...
  13. Just Took the NCLEX

    I'm not sure about California, but in Texas the Board posts names on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. So if you took your boards on Wednesday it wouldn't show up until the following Tuesday. That was what happened to me when I took my LVN boards. Mayb...
  14. Just wanted to ask how much time did you study for the NCLEX? I'm getting worried because I had a abdominal hysterectomy last week, also had my appendix removed and I haven't been able to study for the NCLEX yet. I'm too busy worrying how to get up...
  15. Will results from Pearson/NCLEX come on Saturday?

    Just printed my ATT and the Quick Results Service information. It states, Please wait two business days after your test before you request your results. I wouldn't consider Sunday because they don't test on Sundays. I have a classmate who took it ...
