  1. Hello all, I just graduated with my BSN and i'm getting ready to take my NCLEX soon. I am trying to figure out what is the starting pay for both St. Elizabeth and Memorial Hosp. in Belleville, IL. All I have found here is from past years, nothing current. Now with the two new hospitals, how you guys see things changing in terms of career development for nurses etc. I have been contacted by BJC because my clinical instructor recommended me but the long drive discourages me. I was miserable during clinical because I had the stress of trying to avoid unexpected traffic or an accident in the way. So for that reason I prefer to stay close to my home. *I am also applying to St. Elizabeth's new nurse residency. Any current info regarding the program will be greatly appreciate it as well. Thank you!

    Work for only three months?

    Hello!!! Thanks for taking the time and giving me your perspective. I really appreciate it. My scenario changed...I received their acceptance letter yesterday, so I will be a full-time LPN student in January 2013!! My question now would be if I should tell my potential employer about me leaving or going part-time when schools starts in three months. Thanks everybody!!

    Work for only three months?

    Hi!! I'm a new CNA :) and need help deciding if I should look for a job or not. The reason behind my hesitance is because I've applied and interviewed for an LPN school (11 months full time) that starts January 2013 and I have a strong feeling I am going to make it. I don't want to start a job and then quit damaging any opportunity at that facility where I could have a chance later as an LPN and/or my resume. What if I tell them I could possibly being accepted to that school and that I will then "possibly" work for three months only. Would they let me? I don't want to stay at home doing "nothing" (career related) when I could be using my skills. Any feedback is appreciated!

    Applying for SWIC Nursing Program for Fall 2012

    Hello! Does anyone knows what was the point cut off for this year. I applied for 2011 and was out by 1.5 points (point cut off was 16.5). Now that my husband received new orders to stay here for another cycle, I am going to apply again. I will have 17 points before the exam. I hope to collect more points from it, hopefully. Good luck to everyone and congratulations to those who made it!!!
  10. Hello! I have to make a decision between taking the CNA at SWIC or at the Beck Area Career Center during this Summer. Has anyone graduated from any of these two places? I need info about where do they do their clinical portion etc.? My goal is to apply to both the LPN at Beck and the RN associate degree for Summer 2013 at SWIC afterwards; whichever program calls me first. Thanks for reading!

    Are the two parts of the CNA test on the same day?

    I know is been a while but I wanted to thank you for taking the time and respond to my question! Here is a little update: We were allowed to stay here but I got their response too late as I had to drop my CNA class thinking I would be moving to another state. Now that I will be here at Scott AFB for more than 2 years I will take the CNA during the Summer and I will apply to their nursing program again but for the year 2013. Thank you again!
  12. Hello! I need to know if the two parts of the CNA test are given on the same day or not. The last day of this course is May 8, 2012 and students are allowed to take the test after 30-45 days the last day of class. The problem is that my husband who is in the Army is going to receive orders between May-September 2012 and I don't want to waste my time and money taking a course for which I won't be able to sit for a test. Also, would I be able to take the class and test in another state? Would that be possible? Thanks for all the help you can provide me with! Thanks!!
