  1. Just found out that there were people who haven't received a letter yet and called up to the school to find out their status. So for those who haven't heard anything it wouldn't hurt to give them a call because there's things that have to be turned in on the 10th and orientation is on the 12th of this month.
  2. Just got my acceptance letter today!!!!!!
  3. Nothing in the mail for me yetí ½í¸’
  4. I haven't heard from anyone about the cut off on points. I also applied for the Fall 2017-Mobility Program, have you received a letter yet this is going on the 4th week?

    Call in issues HELP

    Thank you all for your advice, I believe its time for me to move along, I've been unhappy there for a while now. My anniversary date is in October I haven't taken my vacation yet which I planned on doing so next month and I have a little over 40 hours of sick time available. I'm going to take time this weekend and seriously go on the search, its time for me to stop making excuses for me to stay there and be happy again!

    Call in issues HELP

    So I'm going to try to make this short as possible. I've been a charge nurse at my current job at a LTC facility for almost two years. It was my first job after nursing school and I I've been there ever since. With that being said I am a very dependable person and in fact I always would work over, doubles and come in early when needed. Our call in policy is standard policy call in must be made within two hours of your shift. I've called in 3 times since working there once for an unexpected death of an immediate relative and the other two for being sick with a doctors excuse and I always gave at least a 8 hour notice or more so they would have plenty of time to get coverage you know because I actually care about my co workers! But now I'm fed up and im tired of feeling like I been ran over I made a wrong move with my back the other day and been trying to work through it but today after leaving work I decided that I need to take a day to really get it looked at. But I'm told, " well i understand you're in pain but understand that we are in a bind and if I can't find anyone to work for you then I am going to expect for you to come in to work tonight! Like really I was so pissed I was left speechless all I could do was cry and wish that I can just quit on the spot. But unfortunately I have to work and need my job and I'm a sucker for allowing myself to be subjected to this type of treatment. I mean All nurses is this even okay? What if I say no I'm not coming and bring up the policy and thats it?

    Jefferson Davis CC Fall 2016?

    JDCC and Bishop are some what unorganized from what I hear from friends that's in their mobility program now so I wouldn't be surprised if its a last minute thing. I know that at JD some students got last minute clinical assignments and placement BC there is a great need of sites and instructors that they will be still going to clinicals passed the last day of school and after finals for the summer, so just be patient, and prepare yourself mentally, emotionally and financially because you're going to need it Nursing school is a lot of work and it goes by so fast that you are going to hope for more time for everything so just prepare youreselves.

    Nurse forced to work as a CNA

    Yes it can be done I myself often volunteer to work as a CNA if shifts are available to do so to get the overtime I want if I can't get it working as a nurse. I enjoy it being the fact that it gives me a break from having soooo much responsibility on my shoulders and it feels good to be able to leave on time and get paid the same.
