    New Grad jobs/Residency

    I am graduating in June from an ADN program in Michigan.. Looking to relocate to the Baltimore/DC area, does anyone know if any of the hospitals in the area take associate degree new grads for the residency programs?

    New graduate jobs

    Hi all.. I am thinking ahead but planning on moving to Baltimore next June as a new graduate (ADN). Unfortunately, I am getting a little discouraged about the Baltimore job market. Where I am from I would have no problem getting a job as an ADN so I didn't think it would make such a difference but now I am kicking myself for not going straight for my BSN. However, does anyone know of any places hiring new ADN grads. And if I tell potential employers that I will be working towards my BSN, would that help?! I would love to find out more about the job market and network with nurses, new grads, students out in the area. Thank you and best of luck to you all in your future endeavors! :) Sincerely, Angela Carpenter
  3. I am planning on moving to Baltimore June or July of 2014 as a new ADN graduate with no experience. I am just wondering if there will be any RN opportunities for me. I plan on enrolling in a BSN program right away and am willing to work pretty much any RN position until I have experience and my BSN and then I can have some leverage to get me where I really want to be. Any tips/advice would be extremely appreciated. Also, I was wondering what is a SNF position?? Thanks!! -Angela

    Johns Hopkins only hiring those with acute care experience?

    I am thinking a bit ahead but I am in an ADN program out of state and looking to make the move the Baltimore next June. I am feeling a little discouraged looking at the prospective job market seeing that the majority of RN positions out there seem to be requesting a BSN. Is there any chance of being hired in Baltimore as a new grad with an ADN and no experience other than clinicals during the nursing program??
  5. Anyone out there that has been accepted into the nursing program for the Spring 2013 start?

    looking for a study buddy~Baker College Flint

    How did you guys do? Did you get into the program? I also took the Kaplan in June but I did not get into the program (it was my first time applying). I will be reapplying in October and retaking the Kaplan in Decemeber. I would like to find someone to study with. I did pretty good on the math & reading sections but I did pretty bad on the writing and A&P sections. If anyone is interested in studying together, let me know. :)

    Anybody awaiting Baker College acceptance letters?

    Hi Everyone! Congratulations on being accepted into the Fall start. I too applied (at Flint campus) but I did not get in. I will be reapplying in October and the only way for me to increase my chance of getting accepted is to improve my Kaplan score which I will be retaking this fall as well. I did great on the reading and math sections but very poor on the writing and a&p sections. I just wanted to ask you guys how you prepared for the Kaplan since it seems that you all did pretty well on it. Any tips and advice would be sooooooo appreciated!! :) Since Baker has now put in place the rule that you can only apply twice, this is my last shot at Baker so I am SO desperate to get in. Thank you so much and I wish you all the best of luck in the program! :)

    looking for a study buddy~Baker College Flint

    I really wish I would have seen this sooner. I would have liked to have a study buddy to prepare for the exam. I am taking it on June 26th as well, at 1pm. This will be my first attemt and I'm so nervous because I don't know what exactly to expect. I've done some of the practice tests and my area of weakness is definitely A & P, probably because it's been over 3 years since I've taken those classes. :/

    Baker College Flint VS. Baker College Owosso

    I'm pretty sure the process is the same (like you said). They person I heard this from said that the competition is not as stiff at Owosso so that is why it is supposedly easier to get into. I did know about Owosso receiving their NLNAC accredidation which is one reason why I would prefer to get into their program. However, what is CCNE? Is that is good as the NLNAC and/or does it evn matter that much if your school has either of those accredidations? I keep getting mixed feedback when I ask how important it is to a person's future nursing career.
  11. Does anyone know if there is a big difference in the chance of getting in at either Baker Flint or Baker Owosso campus? I have heard that Baker Owosso is easier to get into but I dont know if that is true or just another random rumor. I am closer to Flint but I'm willing to drive to Owosso since it's not much further. Any input would be appreciated! Thanks :)

    Baker Clinton Township Kaplan

    What is dip time?!? :/ I'm so nervous for this exam! I only have 54.45 points from the gpa portion so I am heavily relying on doing well on the Kaplan. Any study tips, pointers, etc are greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Baker of clinton township nursing program

    I'm sure you will make the cut!! 92.65 seems like you are in very good standings! Good job! Just wondering... How did you figure out how may points you received for the Kaplan exam? I will be taking the Kaplan in June and I am just trying to figure out how well I need to do on the Kaplan to be in a good position points wise. Also, do you have any studying tips for the Kaplan exam? Anything is appreciated! Thanks so much! =]
  14. Hello! I will be applying to the nursing program at Baker College Flint this month and will be taking the Kaplan in June. I would like to begin studying right away so I've began looking for study guides, A&P refresher materials, etc... I've that the study guide for the Kaplan is not very useful so I am trying to find other suggestions for studying methods. I still plan on getting the study guide book for the Kaplan but I just want to be as prepared as possible. Thank you guys so much for your suggestions! -Angela
