    New Nurse to DON

    I've been an LPN for 10 years, all in skilled nursing. I just graduated with my RN and was offered a position as DON at one of my PRN jobs. My question is as a brand new RN would DON be a good career move? Or should I bite the bullet and get experience in the hospital first? If I go straight into a DON position now, where do I go from there? Im in my late 30's and will be completing my BSN in the fall

    Excelsior college

    Does any one know if things have changed with California? I read on the state website that there was a change and that now CA would accept EC if you tested in like an out of state resident? Any one know? Im still waiting to hear back form the admission counselor. Thanks
