  4. Mayo Clinic MN work environment?

    Congratulations on your offer! I have to say, I have been at Mayo for a few months and I really like it! Is there such a thing as over resourced? We ate VERY well staffed. I have not got out late ever so far. On my unit it is few and far between to p...
  5. Who here has participated in the VALOR Program?

    I did the VALOR program after my first year of nursing school. To answer your question, yes, there is a ton of paperwork. I do feel like the experience is more than worth it. In the competitive environment that new grad nurses are coming into, the n...

  14. Post-VALOR VA RNs

    I don't know about any transferring as I went straight into the hospital that I worked in. I would assume so but then again with the VA you never know things slip through the cracks
  15. NCLEX 265 questions

    I will say that Kaplan worked really well for me, because the Qbank shows you how to answer questions the "NCLEX" way. It's expensive, but worth it. They also have a PDF that you can download. I used Saunders to review. Every practice test that I did...
