  1. I was just accepted into the Kennesaw State accelerated program to being this fall of 2012. I was wondering if anyone had information about how often/long clinicals are for each semester of the program. I'm trying to get an idea of what my schedule is going to look like. Thanks so much!
  2. Hello! I really want to apply for the KSU Nursing Program. I'm just a little nervous. I have 2 little boys at home, ages 2 and 4 months. If I apply now and get accepted, I will start this fall. So I would have a 1 year old and an almost 3 year old. Anyone out there attempt this before? Or if anyone could tell me how intense the program is, that would help too! I've already got a psychology degree. So I have been contemplating the accelerated program too. I figure that way I could get it over with quicker. But then I would have even less time for my boys. Any advice?

    Kennesaw State Waiting Game

    It's the "name a time when you..." questions that scare me! I try to prepare for everything but it seems like I always get a question during interviews that I stumps me. I just get too nervous. I'll be so glad when Friday is over! :) Thanks sjgimpel!

    I got my interview letter today too! I'm going to call Fran tomorrow to see if I am required to interview since I've been in the program once before...I'm crossing my fingers that I don't have to but I don't have high hopes. I'm so bad at interviews. I get so nervous. Anyone have any info as to other questions they might be asking??

    From what I've read in some other threads, you should prepare for the typical job interview type questions. They will probably ask why you have chosen to pursue nursing and what experience you have in the medical field. Also found some information that said they may ask to tell about times when you dealt with difficult patients/customers and how you handled it. That is all I could find.

    Kennesaw State Waiting Game

    Well, I still haven't heard anything. But I need some advice. Assuming I do get accepted and start school in January, I have to find daycare for my son who will be just over a year old. I've never had him in daycare. The going rate for decent daycares in my area (Smyrna) is $200+ per week. I haven't quite figured out how in the world to afford that on just my husbands salary. Does anyone know of anything decent but more affordable in Smyrna or Kennesaw areas? I can't take out that much in loans, that would be ridiculous. Any suggestions are welcome!

    Nope, I still haven't heard anything. I get my hopes up at the mailbox everyday though.

    Nursing Jobs in Atlanta for New RN Graduates

    Ok, that makes complete sense. I was wondering how so many people could say there was such a shortage of nurses but also be hearing of new graduates who couldn't find jobs. Hopefully it will get better soon...hopefully everything will get better soon. I've been trying to sell my condo for over a year! :)

    Nursing Jobs in Atlanta for New RN Graduates

    I have a question for everyone out there. I have just applied to nursing school and if accepted, I will begin in Spring '10. However, I'm starting to hear awful stories about how recent graduates cannot find jobs right now. I thought nursing was a recession proof job and was shocked to hear about this. Can anyone in the field tell me what the situation is like out there right now. Am I going to have trouble finding a job when I graduate in 2011?

    Yay! Only 3 weeks left of waiting...for the interview letter anyway! Thanks so much for the info!

    Kennesaw State Waiting Game

    Thanks so much! I've already been through this waiting game once before. I first started nursing school at Kennesaw in 2003 and completed my first semester. I had to drop out because of some family things and now I actually have time and support to go back and finish. Because it's been so long, I have to retake all of the nursing courses (but thankfully not the prereqs). So I'm waiting to hear AGAIN! I remember the first time was killer...and I think I only had to wait a month that time. Good luck to you!

    Oh no, that is a long time to wait! I had sent Fran an email and hadn't heard back. They probably have the whole summer off :)
