I am a first year nursing student.

  1. Hello! I am a new grad RN in New York, and I just got a job in the OR. A lot of my fellow nursing students are having a hard time getting an interview, but my experience as a surgical assistant in an oral surgeon's office caught the talent recruiter's eye. If you are definitely interested in being an OR nurse, you should try to get some type of experience, even if it is just working in a surgical office.

    NSLIJ Hiring Process

    I'm wondering if anyone has any advice regarding the hiring process for NSLIJ Manhasset. I got a call on Wednesday, October 12 from the Talent Acquisition Agent for the OR to come in for an interview that Friday. It went really well and I got a call that Monday night to meet with the nurse manager. I met with the nurse manager last Tuesday, but I feel that it didn't go as well as my first interview. It ended with her giving me her card and to call her in case I had any questions, and that I would probably hear from HR the following week (which is this week). I haven't heard back, so I called the Talent Agent and she said they have one more interview and that I'll probably hear back from them next week. Has anyone had any experience with this hiring process? And do you know if they will call back if I didn't get the position? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

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

    Like many of you, I studied for countless hours, did thousands of questions... I took my NCLEX yesterday. My test stopped after question #84. Needless to say, I was shaking in my chair when I got to question 75, and was seriously disappointed when it didn't shut off after that question. I definitely thought I failed, which I see is the consensus for almost everyone. I guessed on A LOT. I had a TON of meds, most that I've never even heard of before. I did the NCSBN online review, and the questions are the most similar to the NCLEX that I have seen. Sadly, I don't think that studying THREE times the amount that I did would have prepared me more because I honestly feel like nothing can prepare you for this test. I had mostly priority questions. If I can give any advice, it is to study PRIORITY, DELEGATION, and INFECTION CONTROL. Even though I left feeling like I just went through a battle, I got home and checked my computer.. GOT THE GOOD POP UP!! I've checked literally 10 times since, and I am still getting the good pop up. I'm PRAYING this works, because I honestly don't think I have it in me to sit for that test again. Good luck to all future NCLEX takers!!!!

    IV starts?

    Hello All! So I am graduating a nursing program in New York next week and my boss wants me to start IV's once I graduate. In nursing school, starting IV's and venipuncture wasn't a skill we covered, but IV piggybacks and IV pushes were. We were told that the facilities that we would be working at would teach us how to start an IV. Well I work in a doctor's office and I don't know what the scope of practice is or if there are any state laws regarding starting IV's?Does anyone have any information for me? Thanks!!
