  1. No one will hire a nurse with only a Associates???

    FWIW I just found out that NONE of the hospitals in my area hire ADNs anymore. (I got this information from credible sources: I volunteer at one of the hospitals and I found out from HR there, an attorney I work with is associated with another hospi...
  2. L&D new grad interview: TIPS/SUPPORT/ADVICE

    I am but a lowly pre-nursing student, so I do not have any advise for you. Just wanted to pop on and say good luck! :) Hope it goes great!!
  3. Just got the call...I'll be an ER nurse!

    Congrats! Good luck and enjoy!
  4. Feelin' good :)

    Just did a little calculating and I figured out that if I did NOTHING else for the rest of the semester (which ends December 15ish), I would still finish with an A in chemistry. I worked my BUTT off at the beginning of the semester to get ahead and ...
  5. Another vent.

  6. advice for new charge nurse

    Speaking from my purely non-nursing supervisory experience...... Management is dynamic. You will learn and grow in the position and with the people that you manage. A management style that works for one person might not work for another. It's imp...
  7. So stressed/confused/worried, PLEASE help !

    First and foremost, I would get information about the nursing schools that you might want to attend. Speak to someone in admissions, check out the websites, go to open houses, etc. You need to know what hoops you're going to have to jump though bef...
  8. Any tips for science portion of TeasV; petrified!

    I'm taking the TEASV pretty soon, too, so I appreciate the info. I will definitely check out the Kahn Academy videos on YouTube (thanks for the tip, aachavez ). I'm stressed about the science portion myself, partly because I haven't taken A&P o...
  9. Took the TEAS V: I think I bombed the Math section

    Sorry! Wish I could help, but I haven't taken the TEAS yet. (I plan to take it pretty soon, though.) I found some helpful study information on (I think that what it's called) and on the AN threads. I've been focused on studying the s...
  10. Any pre req takers? What pre reqs?

    I'm going to work FT until I start nursing school so I'm only taking 8 credit hours, A&P and Nutrition. After this the only pre-reqs I have to take are Micro and Developmental Psychology! It's a good feeling and I can't wait to start nursing sc...
  11. Should I continue my quest to become a nurse??

    Personally, I wouldn't use the essay to explain myself. You get few opportunities to showcase who you are and what your career goals are, and I would just focus my essay on that. At the interview I wouldn't bring it up. Let the interviewer bring i...
  12. Should I continue my quest to become a nurse??

    First and foremost, way to make a comeback! That, to me, shows that if you put your mind to doing something, you can do it and, most importantly, do it well. I can't speak to what the school will or will not look at, since every school's policies va...
  13. Just reigstered for Spring!!

    Thanks for your suggestions! Good link, too! I'm a second degree student, too! I definitely feel like I'm starting over, and I haven't really had any "hard" science classes in a while. I'll take any help I can get.
  14. When to start studying for TEAS?

    I am in the SAME boat! I have to have take TEAS in order to do my admissions interview, and I have to have my interview completed by the Spring 2013 application deadline of February 15. I should be getting ready to take it in December/January and I...
