    front desk job at a medical office ?

    What about applying for a "unit secretary" position at a hospital. At least you could become familiar with a unit and make contacts and prove yourself as a hard worker with good customer service skills. You would also be an internal employee and lear...

    No one will hire a nurse with only a Associates???

    I will graduate in a few weeks with an ADN and I already have an interview scheduled the day after I graduate for an RN position. I was told not to worry since I've already proven myself as a nurse tech. Also, I have completed all the pre-reqs for an...

    Anyone from Charity School of Nursing?

    It depends on the situation. If you take the TEAS and get a good score, lets say 85-90% and above, that's very important. Do you have a degree already, that counts too. I took the TEAS and applied before I took General Biology which is a pre-req for ...

    I HATE MY JOB

    Nolamom, I'm glad that things are improving with the coworkers at least, but it sounds like you are learning a lot. I bet you are learning all your body systems and getting a good review of everything we learned in school. I'm afraid of all those ...

    I HATE MY JOB

    Oh Nolamom, I just saw this post. I'm sorry you have had such a hard time. I cannot imagine having 8 patients especially when so many of them are total care. I remeber when I had clinicals on that unit, I can only imagine what you are dealing with....

    How much did you owe in loans after earning your BSN?

    I went to a community college for all my pre-reqs, then I went for the ADN. Those loans were $7,000 because I saved money by moving home with my parents so I didn't have to borrow as much. For my Rn to BSN, while working as an RN, I will get $1,000...

    vent about RN career over family/happiness

    Stop paying rent, move home into your fiance's house and start planning a wedding and looking for another job. This guy obviously loves you, eventually you will earn money. Look at the big picture. Do you want one child or two or three? I waited til...

    How saturated is New Orleans with new grads?

    Actually they did ask about GPA on the initial phone interview and transcripts were required. However, Beejaycee made a good point about them wanting involvement especially students who are officers. All I can say is do whatever you can to get a "nur...

    Where are all the jobs in this state ?

    You may already know this, but I heard that Touro is not really hiring new grads at the present time and that Tulane only hires new grads for med-surg. The Northshore hospital posts which positions are for new grads specifically. A recruiter from Oc...

    Tough Interview questions

    I haven't had an RN interview, but the nurse tech interviews usually have questions about handling conflict such as upset patients/families, and about being flexible. They may ask you to give an example of one of those situations that you've experien...

    Should I Take a Different Path to Become a Nurse?

    Eventually, I would suggest scheduling an appointment with the advisors for a couple of the RN to BSN programs asap. In my experience, the colleges want to work with the ADN students/RNs in terms of what will transfer into the pre-reqs. For instan...
