  1. quintiles

    If you can get in at Quintiles, I'd recommend just starting there. Fantastic upward mobility (supposedly within 2 years, you can move to a clinical research associate position), and the training you'd get there is invaluable. Honestly, a lot of peopl...
  2. Question from a nursing student

    Honestly: use your common sense, don't congregate in small or large groups to talk, let it be known that you are very eager to learn and are willing to do any task no matter how mundane, and accept the fact that you'll run into all types of nurse...
  3. Non-nursing jobs

    Clinical research organizations like PRA International, Quintiles, Parexel, Convance, etc may hire new grads as entry level clinical research associates, but those positions are rare/few and far between and vary depending on your background in a...
  4. Are jobs becoming more available

    Care to share some of these tactics? I'm sure these unemployed new graduates would love to know where these readily available jobs are and how to get them.
  5. What kind of non-clinical jobs RN new grads are getting?

    Clinical research organizations like PRA International, Quintiles, Parexel, Convance, etc may hire new grads as entry level clinical research associates, but those positions are rare/few and far between and vary depending on your background in addi...
  6. Nurses eat their young - now I understand why.

    I'm positive that it's not only young nurses that make bad interview mistakes....? If you find these new grads so challenging to interview, or in your words- "arrogant" and "privileged" , change the listing to "experience required". Simple soluti...
  7. KCMO Hospitals, St Lukes

    I'm a new grad and I'm actually interviewing for a position at St. Lukes this week. It took about 3 days after applying to get the call. I don't remember seeing any openings for NICU or L&D, but I do know that Liberty Hospital hires new grads and...
  8. If you hate being a CNA will you hate being an RN too?

    And why do you think that being a nurse would change any of that?
  9. Failed NCLEX 5 Times! Am I The Only One Who . . .

    I don't understand what you mean by this. In order to get to those higher level questions, you must first pass basic level questions. If you kept getting basic level questions wrong, then you would ultimately fail. Getting a higher level question wr...
  10. Is my short career over?

    I completely understand where you are coming from as I was in a similar situation very recently (had a horrible experience in LTC). I don't think that you should give up. I think that you should look for and apply to every nurse residency program wit...
  11. Need advice on leaving current job

    Do your best not to burn any more bridges. I know that some people might be of the opinion that they would have been angry no matter what how you gave your resignation but you just really never know. You might need them as a recommendation one day, y...
  12. Ever wonder...

    As I already posted, a general lack of communication was her problem. As well as her dismissive demeanor. And again, had she simply said, the pharmacy was working on it, there wouldn't have been a problem. Otherwise, one thinks that the patient is s...
  13. Salary to expect as a new grad nurse

    I can speak from very recent experience that finding employment as a new grad is, indeed, tough. For me, getting interviews wasn't the hard part. The hard part was beating out the other 5-7 people also interviewing for the position. My sincere well w...
  14. Anyone familiar with MU's Accelerated BSN Program?

    PROS: The program is extremely diverse. My class had so many different personalities and I loved getting to interact with them. Reputation. Having the Sinclair School of Nursing on your resume helps. Great clinical instructors. Great clinical sites. ...
  15. Simply put- use it as fuel, and prove her wrong. It's amazing the things you can accomplish in the face of adversity. I have a previous degree, and was told this in gentler words in my first semester ever in college. I never forgot what she said. By...
