  1. I always tell people to take it in the summer if you can. I took mine in summer (at PVCC) and I LOVED it. You learn everything at once. Its fresh in your mind, which in my experience, made retaining all the info easier. In a traditional semester, by the time finals come around you can barely remember what you learned in August.

    New hires. Employment outlook.

    I am sure that everyone has heard that new graduate RNs are having a hard time finding jobs. Whether its due to lack of experience, budget cuts, not being a BSN, etc. My question is: what, if anything, have people heard about the future? Are things expected to change in the next couple years? Will hiring pick up soon/later/ever? Should people who are just starting nursing school be worried?

    Pinning Ceremony Uniform for Guys??

    I say wear a solid white suit.... Shirt. Tie. Jacket. Pants. All white.
  12. Hi there! I literally just turned in my application to the Maricopa County RN program! In the meantime, I have been trying to get hired on with one of the local hospitals. For months. I would love to be able to work and go to school at the same place - to say nothing of "getting paid" to do both! I have applied to dozens of job postings: admin; cook; janitor; security; coffee shop... everything!.... but I never mentioned my nursing school. I am wondering if I might have more luck being hired if I am upfront: -I am a nursing school applicant. I am awaiting placement into a school. -I would love to be in the partnership program between XYZ Maricopa Community College and this hospital. ....or Should I keep that off of the application.... off of the application, but bring it up in the interview.... or not say anything to anyone?!

    Scottsdale Community College Accelerated Program

    Hi all. I am also a nursing school applicant in Scottsdale. I would LOVE to be in that program. In the last 4 or 5 months I have (probably) applied to 40 job postings at SHC... I have never mentioned nursing school... but I am wondering if I might have a better chance of getting hired if I tell them straight-up: "I am awaiting placement with the Maricopa school and one of the many reason I want to work for SHC is for the tuition program?"
