    Holmes or MDCC Acceptance Letters 2012

    I graduated Holnes Ridgeland in May 2011. Going in I had a 4.0 and 27 ACT. You get points for GPA, ACT, and completed pre-reqs.

    UMC vs. St. Dominic, Jackson Mississippi

    just to give everyone an update, I chose to go to work at Saint Dominic. I started off and med surg. the hospital made the decision to try to expand their women services and the floor I was on is the 1 they chose to convert to women's health. I am enjoying the challenge so it is a little different. And I have to say that this place has a lot of respect for their employees. They are constantly giving us things and always providing opportunities to learn. Most people here really like it. I have friends that started at UMC the same time I started here. Some love it, many do not. All in all i'm glad to be here at St. D. I am say thankful for everyone's comments and would love to continue to hear more.

    Pearsonvue Trick - Does it Work Every Time? Part 3

    The trick has worked (good and bad) for everyone I have ever asked.

    Who enjoys med/surg??

    According to the Pearson trick I passed boards. I will start June 25 at my hospital. Any brand new nurse advice, especially for med-surg? I feel like I don't know a thing and did practically no skills during clinicials.

    Who enjoys med/surg??

    I start a med surg job real soon (providing I pass boards on Saturday) I too have heard so much negative about med surg but I turned a NICU job to take it because I feel like I really need some experience and skills. Plus I will also get to work 3-12's weekdays only at this job vs every other weekend and some nights and a 3/2 split at NICU.

    UMC vs. St. Dominic, Jackson Mississippi

    St D due to schedule and the negatives I hear about UMC layoffs and bad morale. I take boards Saturday.

    So did you apply?

    Holmes or MDCC Acceptance Letters 2012

    I just graduated from Holmes in Ridgeland. The denial letters go out first, so no news is good news. I got my letter saying I got in about 5 days after my friend got hers saying she did not get in. Hope that helps. Best of luck!

    UMC vs. St. Dominic, Jackson Mississippi

    So working both schedules, do you have any preference one over the other? Also can you tell me any good and bad things about NICU?

    layoffs at umc

    why do they layoff and steadily hire more people?
  13. amandagayle

    UMC vs. St. Dominic, Jackson Mississippi

    I am a new grad (ADN), 31 years old. I have NICU at UMC or med-surg at St. D. I love the scheduling at St D its 12 hour days, 3 days a week, Mon-Fri. But the pay is a little more at UMC but the schedule is every other weekend and some nights. So it's going to come down to overall experience of work environment I guess. I have no idea what I want to do!!!
  14. I have job offers at both UMC and St D and was wondering if anyone had ever worked at either or both and had any opinions on work environments.
