    New graduate ADN Moving to Seattle in August from Texas

    Ok great I really appreciate all the feedback.
  7. Maybe someone can shed some light on this, but i cant seem to understand clearly if i have to join a union or not. Ok, so I will be moving from Texas to Seattle in Aug, and when i license and start looking for a job will i have to be affiliated with a union or not? In Texas we do not have much information about unions and just wanted to know if that the norm in Wa. If its an option, what would be some of the pros and cons of joining a union (or not joining). Thanks again.
  8. I am curently finishing my ADN at a commuity college her in Texas, my wife has acceptied a job (pharmacutical) in Seattle and as soon as school finished i wil be following her up there (I will have a TX licence and NCLEX in WA) I have a couple of questions... How long does it usually take to get endorsment for the state of Washington. I am thinking i will prob just get an odd job till i can get my licencing to practice in WA. After I have read in a few news groups of places that will hire new grads, but what is pay like? Any tips of tricks or info that i might need to know as a new WA nurse or just a resident would be gladly appreciated. I know this is a ways off but i am tring to prepare ahead. Thanks for any input.

    San Antonio College Mobility Program LVN to RN

    I was wondering if you are taking Summer courses also? I am in the Mobility program also and we have the opportunity to go thru the summer, 5 weeks pedi 5 weeks OB and 10 weeks transitions to mgmt (or something like that). I have heard that only 50 percent of the summer students make it out alive (pass) any advice on this or know anyone that did this?

    Best review book with CD-Rom for Mac?

    Yeppp, I am in the same boat, I have been looking for a while now and just cant decide which is the most useful. I think i may go with Pearson, after all they are the company that makes NCLEX. This is the book/CD i am thinking of getting. NCLEX-RN Exam Prep, 2/E Wilda Rinehart Diann Sloan Clara Hurd ISBN-10: 0789745275

    San Antonio College LVN TO RN Program

    I graduated in August from Baptist from the LVN program, I decided to apply to the LVN to rn program at SAC and got in. I applied to the RN program before going to to the LVN program and was not accepted. I have low Chem and Micro gradeas and I think that was the reason i did not get accepted. I did exceptionally well in my LVN program graduating with a 3.4 i guessed that helped. So apply see what happens, the worse that they can say is no.

    I agree, I just got accepted i am just a licensed as a LVN. I am really excited to start Jan 11, I agree about applying any way, did not do well in my science courses © and did not get accepted the first time. I did LVN program at Baptist and and did VERY well then applied and GOT IN! So I agree the worse thay can say is no.
