  1. Hello All, I am an RN living and currently working as a visiting nurse in Rhode Island. I have taken a Botox injection course and received a certificate for it, through ESI, Esthetic Skin Institute. Rhode Island being a tiny little state, it seems to be very difficult to break into this field. I have applied to many Dermatologist and Plastic Surgeons offices and no one seems to be hiring! I did get a job offer from Ideal Image, they train you and start you out with learning the laser at $18/hr!!! I could not work for that..I'm an RN! So of course I did turn that job offer down. I am wondering if anyone has any tips, help, or connections to offer. I am a very hard working individual, with great communication skills, who loves the field of plastics!

    My NCLEX story...8th times a charm!

    Thank you and good luck to you as well. It's nice (sort of) to know that I'm not the only one in this position. Sometimes it feels like I am. So many times I hear people say NCLEX is so easy. To me it's not!!! Feels like its going to be the death of me. Even more frustrating I've been out of school for 2 years now! I wish NCLEX was specialized to which type of nursing you want to practice..for me esthetics :) I wish everyone the very best and hope everyone succeeds even if it takes a few times :)

    My NCLEX story...8th times a charm!

    Is this my life?! Thanks for sharing :) I'm going to test next month for my third and hopefully final time. I have had the frustration, depression and readiness to give up. I have literally been sick to my stomach over not passing. I'm now getting over that and rebuilding confidence. I WANT THIS MORE THAN ANYTHING!! Congratulations to you and wish you the best with your nursing career!!

    NCLEX remediation courses

    Does anyone know of any NCLEX remediation courses in Massachusetts?! Or any NCLEX tutors in the North Shore area? Any information would be helpful!
  12. Hello all, First off this is somewhat embarrassing and I'm desperate for help/input. I graduated Nursing school in July 09 and took NCLEX twice and failed. 'Life' happened for the first time ever to me and I'll admit I lost hope. Studying became last on my mind. I truly feel that I'm now in a better place AND WANT TO DOMINATE THIS TEST and MOVE ON!! (I'm dying to be an aesthetics nurse). I took the Hurst review right after graduation and still have the study material..feedback on this? I live in MA and would perhaps benefit from a tutor or study buddy? I don't have a ton of money for new study material/tutors. I'm lost and need some feedback please!! Thank you :)

    Re-taking NCLEX RN with new format

    Thank you for the tips. Do you happen to know if the NCSBN's study guide you can purchase goes over the new format?

    Re-taking NCLEX RN with new format

    Hi, I am a repeat test taker for NCLEX RN. The previous time I took it was with the old format. I am now just beginning to study again and I know there is a new format. Any good tips/advise for me? And what is the difference between the old format and new one? This is so frustrating for me...but I can't give up. Also, I am in Massachusetts if anyone would like to study or knows a good tutor...Thank you!

    NCLEX Tutor

    Hi, I am wondering if there are any NCLEX tutors out there!! I live 40 minutes north of Boston and have attempted NCLEX a couple times now. I think it would greatly help me to now get a tutor for one-on-one. Please let me know. Thank you. :)
