    Career decision

    Thank you, that's just the problem, I've applied for several positions at that facility, the TCU position wasn't one of them. I'm sure I'll figure something out.

    Career decision

    I've been working on a Sub-Acute unit of a nursing facility for about 2 years now. I've been looking to move on the I got a call today from a very well respected hospital offering me a position on their Transitional Care Unit, people aren't sick enough to be in the hospital but not well enough to go home. This position sounds exactly what I'm doing now. My question is, I don't know if I should take it. On one hand this seems like a great way to get into a hospital, on the other hand I feel like I have more to offer and don't want to have to prove myself again.

    It takes up to 10 days in Massachusetts for it to appear on the BON, that's the problem. I still don't believe the quick results. I'm incredibly gun shy since I didn't do well the 1st time.

    It seems like a scam to get $7.95 per person, hey $8 is worth it.

    Luckily my job allows my to study. But, not knowing how far you are into it. It probably took a solid 2 months. I tried to do something everyday but didn't always happen. Just make sure you do all the question trainers, without that their guarantee is invalid.

    Also, in regards to the 2 tests, the 1st time I just did the Saunders review and all of Lippincott's Q&A-failed in 84 questions. My 2nd test was 90% all Kaplan-passed in 75.

    I did the on-demand Kaplan course. It was pricey but didn't want to take it a third time. I did the on-demand cause the actual in class version was an hour away for 3 days in a row. It worked out well, NCLEX is just as much strategy as it is knowledge. I also used the Saunders review a little.

    Took my NCLEX for the 2nd time on Friday, the Pearson Vue trick did not work, went right to the payment screen. Decided to pay for the quick results and it said that I passed. What a rollercoaster of emotions. So, just waiting for the official post. Won't seem real until that happens.

    the TEAS (forgive my posting in this group)

    The science is very random, only 3 questions from A&P I, a lot of life science, some basic chemistry. But yes, very random.
