    South University FNP-Oct 2016

    Are you talking about online or campus? No school is perfect, my only downfall was that I had to find my own preceptors.

    South University FNP-Oct 2016

    Hi, Just recently started coming back to this site. But to answer your question I have 5 weeks left with South University. A lot of changes have occurred in the school but like I said in my initial post every school is what you make it. Once I am done with school I will post more, but I still go there and only have 5 weeks left!

    As a new nurse, how long does it take to get an ICU job?

    I'm a slow poke myself, but I did med-surge for 2 years, then Neuro PCU for one year before I was hired for Neuro-Trauma ICU. If you can look around for internships, I was lucky enough to get hired and received exactly 6 months of training 3 months on days and eventually 3 months on my nightshift.

    What should I do Rn or LPN?

    I would say go for the RN, if you don't have real responsibilities. I went to a LPN program first before getting my RN. I had no children and was still living with my parents, I wish I would have gone straight through, probably would be a NP by now. I have been an RN for 4 years and a nurse in general for 7. Don't waste anytime. RN =more money, responsibilities, more doors opening up. Oh yeah also get a BSN vs ASN,seems that's where all employment is going.Hopefully that helps.

    I am so excited, I can barely stand it. 2 years from now I will look back and know I made the right decision.

    First thank you for you post, good lord *Buyer Beware*, that was just a bit excessive. Like I said I did my research yes there's good and bad but I choose to look at the good side and make the best of it. So excited and hopefully it doesn't discourage anyone from wanting to do the same.

    That's so awesome, any tips would gladly be appreciated. Should I just stick with the digital books? How was locating preceptors? Is it possible to just double up through the whole program? Thanks for replying.

    South University FNP-Oct 2016

    Hello, I just wanted to say that I truly appreciate this site. I will be starting the FNP program at South University October 5th, 2016. After much thought I decided that I will no longer procrastinate. I currently work in one of FL's top Trauma/Neuro ICU's and know that I am capable of doing this program and succeeding. I have been scouting this school for approximately 2 years and have decided that this was the year to get a move on things. I have a great admission rep, who was the same women I met and spoke with 2 years prior when I was thinking about going. I have researched this school to a degree that I think is unhealthy (HA) and the way I see it everything is what you make it. I am not one of those people who went to a well known RN program, in fact people looked down the moment they heard the name (for profit) , but guess what, with my determination and will, I worked my butt off, passed my NCLEX (2012) and now am working along side nurses who went to those very well known schools as a trauma ICU nurse. I can assure anyone that patients don't ask what school you went to, they want to know they have a competent and nurturing nurse by their side. I am lucky to say I live literally 5 minutes away from the TAMPA, FL campus and will be doing the brick and mortar program. I work nights 3 days a week and plan on working only FRI, SAT and SUN. I would like to communicate as regularly as possible with both Brick and Mortar and Online students, both current and past.
