  1. Greetings, I'm also in the process of applying for UK licensure (been a bedside CCU/CVICU nurse for 11 years). I'm a dual American/British citizen and I have an accelerated BSN degree which was completed in 12 months. After waiting for 6 months ...
  2. Countries that recognize US accelerated BSN

    Yes, I have contacted several international nursing agencies (Helen Ziegler, Pearls, CCM International, and Professional Connections among a few others). They all tell me the same thing - from Ireland to Australia/NZ: accelerated BSNs do not fulfill ...
  3. I have a dilemma: for five years I've been a critical care cardiac nurse in the US. I've had wanderlust since I was a kid and I love learning other peoples' cultures/beliefs. It's in this capacity that I want to work outside of the US as a nurse. The...
  4. Nursing in Abu Dhabi

    Not sure about new grad LPN. I'm a 1 year accelerated BSN grad. Unfortunately, Health Authority Abu Dhabi, Dubai Health Authority, and virtually all nursing boards in the Middle East require at least 2 years of schooling, regardless of years of exper...
  5. Long time lurker...first time poster

    Butterfly, It's always nice when you can find someone who has gone through the same things you have; and I'm glad that you found encouragement in my post. You are well-prepared; St. Joseph of Cupertino will be watching over you tomorrow. I wish you a...
  6. What are your scores in Saunders and Lacharity?

    Hi xx, I would highly caution you against relying on your test scores. I made that mistake with Kaplan averaging mid-50s to mid-60s on all Q Trainers and failed...twice! I was right in the range of what they said was passing--imagine my surprise. Wen...
  7. Violated NCLEX rules

    Goodness...that's a terrible situation for the OP, but the people being "harsh" as some put it are spot-on. There is absolutely no excuse for not knowing the rules (which they hand you on a laminated double-sided sheet after you check in). People tal...
  8. All NCLEX takers: please stop stressing (too much)

    Glad I could offer motivation:) All the best to you all in every single one of your endeavours!
  9. Yes, the NCLEX is a difficult exam. When you look at the MCAT or the Uniform CPA Exam, you must admit that we have it rather easy. I'm not condescending, I'm just trying to put things into perspective. I don't intend to tell anyone to "clam up" but t...
  10. Hi En, I'm sorry for your disappointment. Your journey sounds a bit like mine. That said, you may want to look at my post "long time lurker...first time poster" for some encouragement. Remember: failure is not falling down; failure is not getting bac...
  11. NCLEX 2nd Time Around Question

    Hi jaco, Every state is different. Here (in CO) you can test 3 times and if you don't pass you must take a refresher course in order to take it one more time. If you don't pass, then you must apply in another (non-compact) state. I've never heard of ...
  12. Hi deez, You may want to look at my post "long time lurker...first time poster" for my story (which mirrors yours quite a bit).
  13. Hi Ogechi, You may want to look at my post "long time lurker...first time poster." I was (sorta) in the same boat as you. Only you will know when you are ready, but the one thing that I would highly recommend is a prayer to St. Joseph of Cupertino. A...
  14. help with NCLEX......

    Hi chim, You may want to look at my post "long time lurker...first time poster" for some motivation. The most important thing, IMHO, is praying to St. Joseph of Cupertino. All the best!
  15. HELP!!! failed NCLEX 4 times..... Lost my internship!

    Hi Going, As Winston Churchill said (and J.D. from "Scrubs" too) a kite flies highest against the wind. Adversity always leads to triumph. There's a reason that you have not passed yet...just as there was a reason that I didn't pass until 2 years out...
