  2. how many jobs are out there?

    Some courses were time consuming due to the required projects I had to complete . Others were time consuming due to frequent use of 'Blackboard' and other systems to maintain participation. Keep in mind 'online programs' are different from nursing...

  10. Informatics degree or IT degree?

    I will soon have both. I have (2) A.S. degrees in Computer & Internet programming and in May, 2013 will graduate with my Masters in Health Informatics. With my IT degrees I learned about the technical side of things, which gave me a good founda...
  11. What's wrong with me?

    I had a very difficult time getting my big break into the informatics field, so I appreciate your concern. I went on 2nd and 3rd interviews without success. I have 2 A.S. degrees in Computer Programming & Internet Programming; my BSN; and worki...

    rninformatics, Thank you for listing both websites. I will look at them and see what I should alter. I do realize I should be interviewing the team regarding the position, but once the stress and anxiety escalates, I lose all perspective. I need to...
  15. Interview advice

    Dreamer-RN, Thank you for your suggestion. Preparing a list of my questions and then using that list to jot down notes sounds pretty brilliant. It provides me with a not so obvious crutch, at least until I can get over my anxiety.
