  1. Failed A Course...

  7. New grad salary:)

    In my experience $25 is a little low and $30 is a little high, but that seems to be the range. Hospitals do not necessarily pay more, because they are more in-demand. When I was a new grad, I went from a rehab hospital to a critical care unit and too...

  11. CNA Programs Las Vegas

    I do not recommend searching the web for CNA programs, because there is a lot of fraud out there. Here is the board of nursing's list of approved CNA programs. I would recommend contacting the schools directly. http://nevadanursingboard.org/wp-conten...

    I worked for them as a CNA a few years ago. I enjoyed it. The pay was fair and the work load was reasonable. I have not taken an assignment with them as a nurse, but I would.

  14. New grad with ADN

    I graduated with an ADN from an unaccredited school and I had two job offers with in a week of taking the NCLEX. Yes, ADN's get hired. Just make yourself standout in other ways. Make sure your resume and application are perfect. That means no spellin...
  15. CSN current nursing students - online classes?

    I am a past nursing student and I am currently taking general education classes at CSN. I would say it really depends on you. Online classes offer flexibly and are good if you are more self passed learner. Classroom classes demand that you pace yours...
