    VA app. process

    You need to get in touch with the recruiter. I recommend that you keep calling until you make a connection. She will give you the number to a person who will give you a Vet pro pass code, Keep her number by the phone while you are filling in the information if you happen to have any questions. I had a lot because I thought it was kind of confusing, and didn't want to make any mistakes. I'm not sure if they are hiring any new applicants but always keep calling because people move to different areas with in the VA system and also to different location in the country. Feel free to pm me for more details.:heartbeat Good Luck Leesa

    VA app. process

    I started the whole process in February. I'm still waiting but I just graduated and they are waiting for my final transcripts. The whole precess takes a while, Vetpo is how they verify back ground and references etc. You need a physical and don't forget the dreaded interview. Again the processes is a bit lengthly but hey its worth it. I did my preceptor ship there and I loved it. The staff was great and the patients were very appreciative. And hey the benefits are off the chain. I have three of classmates who will be working there. Again the process is long but its worth it kinda like nursing school .Ha Ha :heartbeat Leesa

    Flo Valley or Forest Park?

    I am a forth semester student at Forest Park and I think we have at least 5 to 10 student who transfered to Forest Park for Florissant Valley. They have a high passing rate because it's survival of the fittest. I guess if you are a strong student then go for it. Nursing School is nothing like your prerec's. I love Forest Park. You can call your instructors at home if you have any questions ,I kid you not. They are so supportive. I was on both lists myself and I am so glad I got into Forest Park first. congrats on getting into nursing school and I wish you well Leesa P.S. Luvs2readlotsRN Congrats

    Fundamental of nursing

    We used Potter and Perry for fundamentals. Make sure you utilize the Evolve web site. If you have any questions about the end of the chapter review answers, ask you instructors because we found a few to be incorrect. The Evolve Web site has practice quizzes. They really helped me. Good Luck

    What a terrible way to start off the new year

    I agree with the previous posters. Dust you self off and get back out there. Things unfortunately don't come easy. Nursing school is full of that. People will tell you things just to hear themselves speak and know nothing about what they are talking about. Investigate, you will learn along this journey, there are peaks and valley's. You will have to build a thick skin to deal with things that happen. Not making light of your situation, I left school many times near tears but hey, time heals and I learned from the situation, just as you will. One day you will tell a nursing student your situation and they too will learn something from this experience. You will be an inspiration of determination.:heartbeat Hang in there

    Nurses, where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?

    Hope to graduate in May of 09. I hope in five to ten years to be a clinical instructor like the one I have in my clinical rotation. Having good instructors make school more enjoyable for all involved.:clpty:
