Hi, and I also attended Riverside Nursing program, I graduated in Dec' 08. As for myself I am working in a nursing home facility by choice. I make good money and I am very satisfied here. I took my boards in March, but missed it by 2 points, I plan on retaking it in early May! From what I've heard, Riverside Hospital only starts out with about $12/hr, and most nursing homes start anywhere from $15-20/hr, so whatever float your boat. You have to go where you can make a difference and be happy, good luck! Also I went to the night and weekend program, it was the bomb!!!
