    House supervisors!

    I have no idea what kind of house you could get here for 450k! Maybe a cardboard box! Lol

    House supervisors!

    It's not BS. I have one part time job (24 hours a week) and 3 Per diem jobs. I work an average of 60 hour weeks. Hourly rates for HS in this area are 55-80/hour

    What do you mean by clinical ladder?

    Best and worst states for new grads?

    Stay away from Northern California, probably best to steer clear of the entire state actually

    Best and worst states for new grads?

    Atlanta. Of course, most of my class had jobs immediately after graduation, but we all did clinicals there and had an 'in'

    Worst case scenario needle stick

    So sorry to hear about this. Breathe. Know you are not alone and you have MANY people praying for you and thinking about you.

    Hesi & ATI help anyone????

    Been there, done that. I feel your pain. Do all the practice tests for all the semesters and then review things you may have forgotten (ie: I reviewed OB/Peds with Reviews and Rationales Series Books before I attempted the practice tests)

    hr hiring process???

    Stay on top of it! If you don't hear from HR by next week, I'd call. But it sounds like it's a pretty firm offer

    GPA for acceptance????

    It would depend on your program's requirements. I don't think a 3.47 is likely to be rejected in most instances. This is nursing school, not med school. Of course, you still have to take your entrance exam......

    descrimination in nursing

    Never wrestle with a pig. You get dirty and the pig loves it

    descrimination in nursing

    Why are we wasting time with this individual? Someone with spelling/grammar like this will NEVER make it through pre-reqs for a nursing program.......

    Tell me about yourself question

    Talk about your GOALS in Nursing. Why did you want to become a nurse? What do you want to achieve? List your academic qualifications- honors, accolades, etc, relevant clinical experiences, why you want to work for this hospital and unit.
