  1. How to Prepare for First Day on the Job

    Your eagerness to learn is exactly what your future co-workers want to see. Honestly, as a new nurse, expectations of your nursing knowledge are low. Not that you aren't knowledgeable, but nursing is like 80% on the job learning. As long as you ask ...
  2. What's your opinion on nurses dating doctors?

    Haha.. This post exemplifies a major problem with nursing. DRAMA. Why can't people just got to work, do their job, and go home? Who cares about who is dating who in the hospital. Lmao, it just seems so trivial.
  3. New nurse - ICU

    Most of the hospitals in my area of Ohio do hire new grads. However, it's typically new grads who just did their senior preceptorship on that particular unit. Actually, this happened to be the case for most if not all of the people from my program wh...
  4. New protocol - No report from ER to floor...

    I work on a progressive care unit (really just a med-surg unit tbh) where we also don't receive report from the ED. Is it ideal, absolutely not. It often leaves several gaps and unanswered questions. There have been times where most of the notes are ...
  5. Age vs Years Nursing

    I’m 32 and I’ve worked as an RN for just a 1 and a 1/2 .
  6. Have Not Worked Since Graduating Nursing School

    I graduated with my BSN in July of 2016. I moved to NYC (from Ohio) that September and started a serving job that paid so well I kept putting off taking my NCLEX. I eventually took and passed my boards in December of 2017. Unfortunately, on January 9...
  7. New Grad with Broken Foot

    When you explain what happened, employers will understand. I just got hired on to a unit on my first interview despite having graduated 2 years ago. I lived in NYC for a year, and then I was in a serious accident that took 10 months to fully recover/...
  8. Practice interview questions

    When I am preparing for an interview I research a number of questions and write out answers. Below are the questions I gathered from all over the internet that I used to study. This help me feel super confident during my interview, and I was ultimate...
  9. To those without a 4.0 (rant)

    That's awesome news! Congrats Linette!!
  10. To those without a 4.0 (rant)

    This is where I would like to see documented proof. I do not deny the importance of a high GPA for this particular kind of program, but I would like to see both the average and the lowest GPA of admitted students.
  11. To those without a 4.0 (rant)

    A 3.45 is a great GPA, and definitely keep working to get it as high as you possibly can. But I think you have a great chance of getting accepted to a program!
  12. To those without a 4.0 (rant)

    NurseP00kie --- It seems that you are assuming that this rant is a direct response to the the "4.0 is the golden ticket!" thread, and I should clarify that it is not. That's actually why I started a whole new thread rather than adding a reply to that...
  13. To those without a 4.0 (rant)

    I keep coming across these posts from nursing students who say YOU MUST HAVE a 4.0 to even bother applying. Although I understand that there exists steep competition for nursing school admittance, I can't help but roll my eyes every time I see one of...
  14. 4.0 is the golden ticket!

    I got into NYU, university of Rochester, wright state university, kettering college (local private school) with a 3.5 from a previous degree and a 3.4 in pre-reqs. Although A 4.0 surely doesn't hurt I don't think it's entirely necessary. Particularly...
  15. Yup, I failed...2nd year, first semester! Need advice

    Awesome story!! You should be very proud of your success, and I wish you the best of luck with your future nursing career!
