    RN- BSN Can't Find a job w/ 6 months Ex.

    Thank you! I did not have my checker on. I have dyslexia and I did use outside help for my resume. Plus, I had two other people check it for errors. I did get a call back from one near Austin. I hope this will be the one.

    RN- BSN Can't Find a job w/ 6 months Ex.

    I will most likely relocate. Most places that do dialysis want 18 months of experience. I went to one interview today for a dialysis job and that was the common saying.

    RN- BSN Can't Find a job w/ 6 months Ex.

    A little bit about myself. I was a single mother until a year ago, when I got married to my now husband. I completed my ADN at a local community college. I am graduating this week with a 3.8 GPA, being inducted into Sigma and was consitedered for other Honor programs. I have a few disabilities like audio prossessing disorder and a speech impediment these "abilities" are more of the internal nature so you would not know just by looking at me. I have worked hard to overcome but it tends to show its ugly head durring interviews. Lucky me, right? I noticed that at any time that I fill out an application and it asks for the statement if a personmay have or have had a disability I mark yes. I ussaly receive a rejection letter. I have worked very hard for this! Learning does not come easy to me but I am a very dedicated nurse. I pour hours over a subject to get it down correctly. I landed a job at one of the big two for dialysis (I don't want to go back to) but my husband got injured in a car accident. I had to quit my job to take care of him full time. He is better now and I'm back trying to find a job. I have been applying to jobs for anything and everything that has an RN I title. I have about seven months of experience which is too much for a residency here or too little to land a job that requires experience. To make my search harder an area hospitail just closed and there is about 900 people out looking for jobs that are experienced and ready to work that are now my compatition. I feel bad about the situation but I have been on this hunt longer. On the plus side I have been interviewing with mutiple hospitals for this area. I feel like I am getting better at interviews. I have many ambitions about my career path I do plan on going back to school for my MSN then for my DNP. It is my passion to help people. I feel like it is my calling. As soon as I get the experience that I so desperatly need I will start the pursute of a mentor for my upcoming degree. I have tried applying long term crit care, SNFs, and everywhere in between. I was one of the nurse volenteers for Harvey. One more down side about this whole situation my ex-husband had a clause in our divorce that I'm only allowed to live one county away from his. This was a problem with my job search. I was informed that I would have to file with the courts to move. He has other stipulations like the standard posession order but I have to switch off my child with his mother because of a protective order for family violence. I don't think that relocating would be a problem though because of the situation that I am in with trying to find a job. I have many rejection letters and doccumentation of failed interviews. His child support is just $250 a month. His mother pays because he will not get a job. I went back to school and is process of earning three degrees with two of them in nursing after I left. I have grown as a person but I just need a job. I just want to help others. Any help would be a huge help to me and a brighter future for my family. Thank you in advance and happy nurse's week!

    NCLEX Resource Review - Kaplan, Hurst, UWorld

    I did Saunders, Hurst, Kaplan, and Uworld in that order. I have learning disabilities. Saunders did nothing for me because it was part of a capstone done during the last semester. Hurst was a very good program but as a live review. I did it twice! Kaplan was way too confusing for me. I had Uworld for a year. It didn't help me during school but it is what I used last after almost breaking my computer from Kaplan. I went through all of the questions once and did it again. Read the explanations. It dumbed things down for me and explained things out. I did feel like Uworld mimicked the test plus I felt better after the Nclex. Just remember everyone is different and have different learning styles. I also passed with 75 questions.

    Houston Community College ADN applicants for fall 2015?

    Ok... just to let everyone know that the school is changing their degree plan. They sometimes loose student email a dresses so please keep that in mind. Signing up for classes will be a bloody battle and be prepared for your schedule to change by time, day, or/ teacher. DO NOT WORK DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF CLASSES!!!! They will do hospital orientations on that week sometimes only giving 24 hours notice. There are a lot I can talk about with this school. But I do have to say one thing.... study your but off and hang on for the ride. I have passed all of my classes but not everyone was so lucky. I'm on my second year and this is a very hard class I'm already hitting the books. Good luck!!!

    Study tips that I just found

    Ok, the title I just jotted down is what I want to write about. Today was orentation for nursing school. I found out about new tricks about getting better grades!! Test simulations by using ankisrs.net it is ment for decks and more. It is supposed to help you study. Your teachers can view your progress on it too!! Coupled with a voice recognition software, you can make decks easy at least that is what my counselor told me.
