Try looking for a position on a stepdown uinit or telemetry unit, it will make for a easier time trying to get a ICU position. They usually only have 1 or 2 new grad openings on that unit. But if you have some type of experience it will make for a easier time for you to get your dream position. It will only take a minimum of a year max of 18 mos.

Do you have test anxiety before you go in and take the test. We all have it to some degree about a big test but I know for me if I work my self up to much I will not read the question correct. What is main content that was on your test?

I have been searchiong for a job since feburary and I have not had any luck yet. I have applied to every hospital in Dc, VA and MD and I have not even recieved a call back. Hopefully I will get something in the near future. This is a hard time for new graduates who did not work in the hospital as a tech.

This school is a total rip off. All hospital jobs want you to attend a school that is accredited. Look around there are plenty of nursing schools in the area. I cant believe they want you to pass with a "B". Usually you have to pass with a "C" 78% or better. Skip this school.
