  1. Just Curious about NICU/Peds

  2. prereq's at Gordon....

    Frankly I don't believe any college or university prepares you for nursing school. Nobody told me that it wouldnt be a good idea to binge and purge the information. They certainly werent testing me they way they do in nursing school either. I graduat...

  5. New Grad RN, can I work NICU?

    I was told the same thing by both my nursing professors and my mom (who has been a NICU nurse for 21 years). Luckily I decided to work on a medsurg in an all pediatric facility. I think they tell you that so that you can hone your assessment skills a...

  9. loans/hospitals/peds- ATLANTA

    I currently work at CHOA but I don't know anything about a loan repayment. You may want to talk to a recruiter in regards to that. CHOA will hire you as a GN but you will be considered a nurse-grad tech and will be oriented as a tech until you pass N...

    Service Cancellable loans is how I'm paying off my student loans. Basically they give you a set amount of money each semester for nursing school and you pay it off by working as an RN in Georgia!!
