    DFW GN/RN June 2011 Internships

    I have to send my affidavit in because I'm out-of-state. Or have my school send it in but I'd rather send it in myself once they fill it out.

    DFW GN/RN June 2011 Internships

    I just went to the BON's website and found this: Upon deeming you eligible to take the NCLEX, you will receive an email verification from Pearson/Vue giving you the authorization to test (ATT) and instructions on scheduling the test. Upon receiving the ATT, you will have 75 days to take the exam. If eligible for a graduate nurse (GN) or graduate vocational nurse (GVN) permit, the permit will be posted online within five working days of deeming you eligible to take the exam. So, I guess once you get your ATT, you'll be granted a GN permit within a week and you can probably find it online. Good luck guys!

    DFW GN/RN June 2011 Internships

    Oh ok. When did you mail the whole application in with the affidavit? Right before you graduated?

    DFW GN/RN June 2011 Internships

    How long did it take for you to get your ATT? That means you have your GN permit as well also, right? I'm asking because I'm coming from Jersey and I start orientation (in-class training) on June 20th. I sent in my application (they've already cashed the check)and 2 sets of fingerprints (just in case 1 wasn't good enough). I've also already registered for NCLEX. The only thing that is holding me up is my affidavit saying I am eliglible to graduate. I won't get that done until June 9th (end of my Leadership course -- I graduate June 15th). I just want to make sure I have everything in time for when it's time for my on-the-floor training.

    Applying to Mountainside Hospital School of Nursing?

    Send me a message and I'll message it to you. No, I didn't apply for the fall semester. I started this thread 2 years ago and I'm about to graduate from Mountainside in 25 days.

    Applying to Mountainside Hospital School of Nursing?

    Do you have Mrs. *********'s direct number (not the general school's number)? Call her DIRECTLY and try early in the morning (like 6/6:30am). She's there super early and that's sometimes the best time to reach her. All else fail? Go there in person.

    Thanks, RNCoastieWife and Campercass! I got a job in Texas (we're both in NJ about to graduate next month). She and her hubby want to move to Florida but I'm trying to get them to come with me to Texas! lol! ;-)

    Write the paper or change the flight?

    Yeah so..it looks like I'll be writing that paper. The flight difference went up from $30 two days ago to $500 today! I was near tears. So, I'm going in on Monday to talk to her about the paper. I'm also letting my advisor know (some of the instructors already know) as well as the Dean. I want to get the article on Monday and hopefully turn it in the next Monday.

    New RN's...do you have a job ?

    As stared in my previous post, I'm moving. I got offered a position in the ICU in Texas I live right outside of NY City. Even in Texas, things are competitive, even for the natives. I suggest not only cold calling but visiting the hospitals, SNFs, doctor's offices. Let them see you in person. Especially if you live out of state. That shows committment. But, even if you can't move out of state, don't simply sit home and fill out applications online..pound the pavement. I believe if you want something bad enough, you'll go after it relentlessly.

    LOL!! Me either! :)

    I'm sure you will be! I haven't even seen Chappell Hill yet, except online! LOL! I'll be able to view the apartment before I move in when I come down literally for 24 hours about a week before I start (to do the physical and hand in my new hire paperwork). The assistant manager literally had something come in the morning after I emailed her..very last minute. She said I was VERY lucky and I believe I was because the other places I wanted, there was nothing available! But, Chappell Hill was your favorite? I'm hoping that's a good sign! And I heard great things about Pecan Pointe and I had checked out the website. It looks great! I think we'll all be pleased! :) I think Redraider starts on the 20th with us!
