    New Graduate Application Issues

    Thank you so much! I did not realize that it would take this long to process everything. I would have applied early but we were told we had to wait until our degree was posted, understandably.

    New Graduate Application Issues

    I graduated from my school, in GA, in on December 11th and submitted my nursing application to the board on December 15th. The only thing I left for the board to check is my college transcripts which they have had since January 10th. I'm starting to get frustrated because it feels like other people are getting their ATT and scheduling NCLEX and they applied after me. What else can I do to get them besides calling to just process my transcript and send me my ATT? Everything I call I get the same response that it will take up to 21 days to process it.

    new pediatric dialysis nurse seeking advice

    I am interested in pediatric dialysis too. I'm getting ready for my last semester of nursing school and I have developed an interested in kidney diseases and how they affect other areas of the body. I also love pediatrics so I would love to combine the two.

    Has anyone used uworld to pass HESI exit?

    Our professor said that it was mostly fundamentals, leadership and management, and med-surg especially the first Exit HESI. She said the others get a little harder. Our programs makes us take 3 times but we only have to pass with a 900 once.

    Has anyone used uworld to pass HESI exit?

    I was trying to see if I should purchase Uworld for the Exit HESI because one of our professors said that Uworld and yourbestgrade have easier questions than HESI (these are her words not mine). Is this true?

    Hello ladies! How was orientation?

    Grady Memorial Nurse Externship 2020

    CONGRATS to you as well! Yes, I teach Special Ed. I have been going to Brenau's evening and weekend part-time program which has allowed me to go to nursing school and still teach full time. I would have said yes to Monday but technically I'm still under contract with school system and I have to be available M-F 7:30-3:00 even though everything is online. Do you know if we are doing day shifts or night shifts or a mixture?

    Grady Memorial Nurse Externship 2020

    Hi ladies! I applied too. I received my email this morning to pick a date for orientation. I told her couldn't start tomorrow because I am technically still teaching (nursing is going to be my second career) and my agenda was to start around June. So I'm going to do the June 1st date. My three choices were L& D, and Med-Surg: Hemo/Oncology and Med-Surg: Immunology &General Med.

    Reapply to Nurse Extern Program?

    I really didn’t leave too much out pertaining to the nurse extern program. That went fine and I didn’t burn any bridges. I left out information concerning why I had to reapply to my nursing program which had no bearing on the nurse extern program. The reason I had to reapply was due to the fact that the undergraduate coordinator and dean of my program felt that since I decided to withdraw on medical leave (pregnancy), I was sitting out too long to just jump back into the program where I started. I still don’t think It was totally fair but I’m not mad because It has allowed me to go over concepts that I didn’t learn or missed the first time.

    Reapply to Nurse Extern Program?

    No, I didn’t burn any bridges. We had a wrap up session at the end of the summer with the nurse manager and the clinical educator on the floor and they were happy with my performance. We had a choice to work PRN on the floor when we were finished with the extern program but I wasn’t able to do It with the pregnancy. Like you said, I can at least try and see what happens.
  12. I wanted to get other's opinions on this situation. I was rewarded the opportunity to be a nurse extern back in 2015 at a children's hospital in my area. My plan was to gain employment there after I finished nursing school. However, I failed my med-surg class that Fall after I had completed the nurse extern program and I had to reapply to my program (I'm leaving out some parts on why I had to reapply to make this short but basically I ended up pregnant when it was time for me to retake the course and I made the decision to sit out instead of fail out of the program). Now, I am back in the program with only 3 more semesters left (yeah!). I would like to reapply to be a nurse extern at the same hospital again since I'm still in love with pediatric nursing. I'm just scared that since I did the program before that I will not be allowed to do it again. Should I try to reapply for the program or should I go another route such as become a part-time PCT at the hospital?

    I'm done with prerequisites. I'm taking Patho since it was recommended for this semester. Are you applying for the Full-time or Part-Time? I'm applying for the Part-Time 2018.
