  1. Discrimination Against Relocaters

    In my honest opinion, it may just be plain curiosity and have nothing to do with 'fear' that you will leave soon. Nobody knows what the future holds for their career. Who's to say that those 'local' new grads will stick around the hospital. People ...

  5. Pearson Vue Trick - Does it Work Every Time? Part 2

    OK - just got done taking NCLEX-RN. Hardest exam I have ever taken. Got the good pop-up, but still scared to death. I believed in the 'good pop-up" until today!! Freaking out....
  6. Supervisor upset because I have another job!

    I work as a "Nursing Assistant" at a hospital in IL. I was able to get the job after 3 clinical rotations, which was basically after my first year of nursing school. I do the same things as a CNA plus a few additional things that CNA's cannot do (D/...
  11. SWIC Acceptance

    I'm with "Busy" too - just finishing up my first year and I remember all to well being in your shoes this time last year! For the last couple of years the minimum # of points you could have was 15. From what I heard from classmates, there were so ma...
