  2. I got a job!!!! BOO-YOW!

    Hi Cat....if you are SUPER interested then you do just that....ALL OF THE ABOVE with a bit of a twist. First off, "shift supervisor" is not exactly "upper management." So emailing them would really be on the "bad side" of stalking, if that makes any ...

  5. sometimes i feel the system sets us up for failure with all the constant documentation. my facility has had some recent close call lawsuits for whatever reason that all turned up frivolous. b/c of it, administration has beefed up on the documentation...

  8. Location change

    I have no clue about the job market in Denver. However, I feel that it should be much more urbanized than the town you are from in WY. But as far as experience is concerned, you have 1.5yrs RN experience. That's more than enough to get a position on ...

  13. New grad program that requires CURRENT LICENSE

    Definitely apply! Even though programs require it; as long as its furnished to them before it starts, you're in the clear. If they ask for it beforehand, you can state that you are NCLEX-eligible, so that they won't TOTALLY disqualify you. HOWEVER, d...
