  2. May Graduate--Applying for jobs

    It never hurts to be ahead of the game in the job hunt keeping in mind that the majority of hospitals will not consider you for a position until you have graduated and some not even until you pass NCLEX. I graduated in May 2011, I started applying f...
  3. Applying for Nursing School-Points System

    I think they all take the percentage that you make on the TEAS test and add it to your points. Also, I would highly suggest that you finish all of your prereq classes BEFORE you start nursing school. Nursing classes can be extremely difficult and r...

    I would recommend hurst review. The instructors make the content fun and easy to understand. You'll also get some good study tips. Good luck.
  13. New grad nurses- what did you do to get hired?

    I had to use a contact I made during my second semester in clinical. My instructor told me to call her as soon as I graduated and she would help me get an interview. She did and I start my new job in a week and a half.
  14. Does bullying really go on in Nursing?

    Absolutely bullying occurs in nursing and unfortunately some of it begins in nursing school among students, clinical instructors, faculty members, and nurses at the clinical facility. The best way to avoid it? Try to stay away from the cliques and d...
