    ATI RN Comprehensive Predictor

    ATI predicted I had a 98% chance of passing NCLEX, and I passed with 75 questions. I feel like ATI questions are easier than actual NCLEX questions though.

    Tennessee RN - How long to get license #?

    It took me 8 days to appear on the website. Still waiting for the license to come in the mail.

    Pearsonvue "Trick". Is this TRUE? Does it Work Every Time?

    I took the test this morning, shut off at 75 questions, and when I got home I had the good pop-up! I'm hoping the next 2 days go by really fast because I won't really believe it until I read somewhere that I actually passed! Rednights - I'm in the same boat as you, at least if I fail I get my money back! haha :)

    Vanderbilt's Nurse Residency Program

    For those who have gone through the program before - are there any unit specific dress codes we need to be aware of? I'm going to be starting in the critical care residency and at the hospital I work at now anyone in critical care has to wear royal blue. I know for orientation it said we can wear whatever as long as it's not all black, but once we get assigned to a specific unit is there a different dress code? Just wondering so I know what new scrubs to buy! Thanks for your help! )

    Fingerprinting for Licensure Question

    Yeah, I was pretty irritated about having to pay the $100 application fee, too! $160 for the application and fingerprinting! What do they think I am, made out of money? Haha! You add in the $200 to register for NCLEX and then I'm taking a Kaplan review class, too, that cost me $380! Getting my license is taking all my money! Oh well, it's all worth it in the end! :)

    Fingerprinting for Licensure Question

    Well, I found out that they only let you do the fingerprinting through the cognet website if you can actually get fingerprinted in TN. If you live in another state you have to do it the old way with the ink and fingerprints on a board and then send it to TN. Jess20 - I have no idea about a temporary practice permit. I didn't even ask them about that. I start my job mid-july and I can start without having my license, I just can't give meds. But I'm hoping that everything is figured out by then and I will hopefully be able to take my boards before or shortly after I start working. let me know if you figure anything out about a practice permit. Maybe that's something PA does and not all other states? Did you get the application and everything from the TN BON? I got it in the mail this week and it really helps explain the process in more detail of everything that you need to do. I don't see why they don't put these instructions as a pdf file on the BON website, but who knows...!

    Fingerprinting for Licensure Question

    Do you know if that is for out of state applicants, as well? On their website it says that you can do the electronic scan if you live in state, but under out of state applicants it only mentions the fingerprinting card.

    Christiana Care Internships for new Grads

    I got a call for an interview for the critical care internship the second full week in April, but had to turn it down since I had already accepted another offer. I have a friend that applied to the medical internship and has an interview for next week. Hope that helps!
  9. Hi! I have a quick question for you all. I'm from Pennsylvania and got a job as a graduate nurse to work in TN after I graduate in May. I know that I need to get fingerprinted as a requirement to get licensed (as well as passing NCLEX). When I called the TN board of nursing they asked if I had received a packet of information, which I had not. They said they would mail it to me, but then every other question I asked their answer was "it's in the packet" instead of actually answering my question. I was just wondering if someone who actually has this packet can tell me what the beginning steps are or who I am supposed to call to get started on the fingerprinting aspect of this. It said on the TN BON website that it could take 4-6 weeks for the fingerprinting to process and I start in July so I want to try and do this as soon as possible. So if anyone could help me out at all, I would appreciate it! Thanks!

    Vanderbilt's Nurse Residency Program

    I got accepted into the critical care track and I'm really excited! I was kind of assuming I wouldn't get an offer since the program is so competitive and now I have a HUGE decision to make! I'm currently living in Pennsylvania so it would be quite a move for me. Now that the possibility is there I have a lot to think about before April 14th!

    Anyone from Hamot in Erie?

    I was wondering the same thing, too! I'm going to have an interview there soon, once me and the nurse recruiter stop playing phone tag so we can actually set up a date! Any information about Erie in general would also be nice since I am not from the area. Thanks!
