    advice

    Question... what makes for a good ER tech? What are some of the things that they do that you appreciate, and what are some of the things that they do that annoy? What advice would you give to someone who is about to start working as a ERT that is somewhat inexperienced...besides "bring your rollerskates!" :) Thanks in advance!

    When you were in school....

    Anyone work as a nurse assistant while in nursing school? I've been in school for the last year and turned in my application to start nursing school in the fall. I think (hope) my chances are pretty good; I should know something within the next month or so! Through this process, I went ahead and took a LTC/HHA course which I'm about to finish up and test for my CNA license. A friend of mine suggested to me that I might look into a part time tech job at the hospital for some practical experience. I noticed that our local hospital had a few part time tech positions open so I applied just to see, never really thinking I'd get the job as I'm not quite done with my CNA class... well... surpise! Long story short, I got two calls back, two interviews, and accepted a position in the ER! They know that I'm not done with my class, and that I have absolutely no experience, but I'm still a bit nervous that maybe I bit off more than I can chew? I realize that its going to be hard work, and I'm certainly not afraid of that, or of the more undesireable tasks I'll be doing... I'm nervous about my lack of experience and being more of a burden than a help, if that makes any sense. It's so hard going into anything new and feeling inept! Can anyone share with me how working as an assistant helped you in school and maybe give me some tips on what makes for a good tech in the ER? Thanks!

    help me decide..

    I know this question has probably been asked a million times over but......... here it goes again. Physiology before Anatomy? I can't take the anatomy class that is offered at my school because of scheduling constraints but I can take Physiology. My question is this: who has done Physiology first, and did you survive? And then did you do well in Anatomy for it? Thanks in advance Lindsey

    Hospice Nurses...please read my thread

    I too am so glad I happened on this post today. The hospice nurses that cared for my dad 5 years ago when he passed are what have inspired me to go back to school to get my RN. I am almost 33 and I worked for 8 years as a medical coder. I spent most of my time chart auditing. It was always so interesting to me and I often found myself wanting to be on the front lines as opposed to behind the scenes. My family's experience with hospice was so amazing; it sealed the deal for me... I want to be a nurse! I've been a stay at home mom for about 3 years now and have slowly been working on getting all my prerequisites to apply to my local nursing program. I'm hoping to get accepted into the fall 2010 class. Do you have any advice for soemone just starting out like me? I know that I will need some time in something like a Med Surg unit to get some experience... And, how much does your own faith('s) play a role in your work? Thank you all of you for the work that you do. Know that you touch lives in such an awesome way and make something that can be so very painful (physically and emotionally) and scary an amazing experience. It sounds weird to those who haven't been through it... but I rejoice being with my dad when he passed. It strengthened my own faith and I will treasure that memory forever. I believe I owe much of that to hospice. :redpinkhe Thank you! Lindsey

    Thanks so much for your reply. I actually got a chance to meet with the division chair and got quite a bit of info. Her suggestion was to take the ACT (my last scores are 14 years old!) AND the NET so if I don't do well on one I can fall back on the other. Any suggestions on which to do first?

    Thanks! I'm curious about how competitve it is to get accepted into their progam; what is their ratio of applicants to spots to be filled. I'm also wondering if they have a high rate of graduates pass the NCLEX?

    Is there anyone who has earned an accelerated bachelor's in a different discipline that decided to apply for ns and got accepted? I'm in my 30's and currently in a BS for Behavioral Science and Ethics program, and I'm starting to think I really would like to go into nursing. I'm wondering what is available and what to expect in order to be accepted to various nursing programs. Also, does anyone have any info about Seminole State?
