    Samuel Merritt Accelerated BSN Program - is it doable?

    Does the class schedule ever require you to attend at night? I'm just wondering if it would be possible to do the SMU program while completing law school in the evening. Thanks!

    Job offer....advice please!

    Take it now and believe in yourself! You will never know it all, and can only learn more with on the job experience. You can brush up on anything you aren't familiar with on your days off (and you'll have a better idea what you need to focus on). Plus, they won't expect that you know everything and your co-workers could be an excellent resource - they can teach you so much! Hope you hear good news!

    Opinions on 2 majors & a minor vs. BSN

    I would personally save time and money and just get your BSN. I have two majors and two minors from a university and the # of degrees you have is of little importance unless they are bachelors, masters, PhD, JD. Also, few people care about your minors (even though knowledge of Biology is very important). If you go straight to BSN, you can use your saved $ for a masters! Or whatever you would like to use an extra $10-15k on :)

    Samuel Merritt ABSN Spring 2011

    I'm pretty sure SMU's ABSN program is going to be the best way for me to go. If accepted, I'd like to know what I'm getting myself into! Does anyone know what tuition is for 2011? Is it the same for all locations or does it vary by campus (I'd like to stay in Sac, but willing to move). Thanks!

    Spanish Online anyone?

    Hooray for the A! Sounds like you put a lot of time and effort in and it paid off I was just looking into an online program for foreign language credits. My undergrad took the 4 years I had in high school and waived the requirement, but I now need to show more recent credits. I'm fairly comfortable with Spanish (at least more so than any other language) so I'm considering taking the Spanish CLEP in Spring. It's just going to take a lot of self-discipline to study!!

    Finally happy!

    That's fantastic! Congratulations on finding exactly what makes you happy!! These are the posts that encourage my dream of becoming an RN! Every nurse I speak to LOVES their job :)

    Lawyer to Nurse

    I am in my final year of law school and I realized last year how unhappy I would be if I devoted my life to a firm. I have worked in the public sector and in a private law firm, but neither one is for me. I will finish my pre-reqs this year and will have some tough decisions to make once I graduate. I love this thread because I would LOVE to hear your stories! For those who left the legal profession, what was your first job? What is your job now? What jobs do you recommend for RN JDs? Thanks to anyone who replies!

    Sacramento Area Nursing

    I'd be happy to answer any question you have about the area! I love Sacramento. I grew up in Carmichael, but currently live in Midtown. I attend law school in Sac & have friends who work at UC Davis Medical Center, Kaiser, Mercy, and Sutter. Send me a PM and I'll try to give you as much info as possible! Hope you have an enjoyable trip in December!
  12. How big is the concern that nurses need the insurance? Are they really sued that often or are companies trying to scare nurses into the additional expense?

    Stay on crazy med-surg or unemployment

    Isn't this the exact reason why hospitals have not been hiring new grads... they ask for experienced individuals because hospitals currently require fewer people to handle more work. They believe more experienced nurses can handle more patients, work faster, work independently, and are familiar with long shifts. I would stay for the experience and transfer to another floor or another hospital once I got the 2-3 years requested experience. Good luck in your decision!

    Hired at UC Davis MC: Where should I live??

    Congrats! My friend works there and LOVES it! It really depends on what type of lifestyle you want. Midtown is a great option if you want to go out (eat, drink, be merry). This is where I live for about $500/mo (pretty reasonable esp. if you're coming from the Bay). Davis feels like a LONG drive, but it is a safe, health conscious college town. Definitely a better location (compared to Midtown) if you're looking to buy a house and settle down with a family. If you are interested in a good location to raise a family (and can afford it), I highly recommend East Sacramento! I'd stay away from Natomas, Folsom, and Roseville because you'll be at UCDMC. Feel free to PM me!
