    UTHealth Houston FNP Fall 2021

    I had my interview May 5th as well so this week I’m expecting to hear back something hopefully. My application online says I am admitted, but wasn’t sure if that was a fluke or something. I’ve been getting emails now to submit my immunization records...

    Texas Children's PICU New Grad

    Be deligent and ask questions regarding meds if you have them. Ask questions about anything g you need clarifying. I recently started in the PICU after working with adults and it is quite different. I sometimes feel like a nuisance, but ultimately it...

    Texas Children's PICU New Grad

    Good luck in the PCU! It can be a very stressful unit. Do forget to ask for help when you need it and there are plenty of nurses to give advice or assistance. I oriented there for a brief period :)

    Waiting to hear from HR

    I had two interviews last week that went well. The nursing manager was not there, but the nurse house manager was for both interviews. She was very pleased with me, offered me a position, and said she wants me to start Monday if possible. I accepted....

    I found out today that I passed the dreaded NCLEX with 150 questions! A lot of my classmates so far have passed with 75 and reading on the forum it seemed many people passed with 75 or 265 which worried me for about two days. I felt terrible about no...

    Your Favorite Review Course?

    1. I've been using NCBSN and Hurst mostly. My program required us to do the NCBSN prior to graduating and Hurst was offered to us at a discount at our school. 2. I loved NCBSN to review specific content, it is a lot of reading though which may not b...

    Asking questions

    I think it went well. I haven't done an interview in a few years so I was very nervous. Everyone was nice and the questions weren't too difficult. I asked a lot of questions. The director said if HR calls me it will be by Friday or Monday of next wee...

    Asking questions

    I am a new grad and I have trouble coming up with questions to ask. Would asking about what type of charting system is used be an appropriate question if you are unfamiliar with the hospital? I have an interview with a director of MICU tomorrow and a...

    Asking questions

    Thank you! Those are very helpful! I appreciate it greatly :) I planned on asking other relevant questions too and had written down about education opportunities, additional training/support offered, typical MICU patients.

    Other Nursing Schools in Houston

    There are several students I know that have failed out of my ADN program and were able to reapply and continue through to graduate. It doesn't happen with everyone, but under certain circumstances I think it is possible.

    Lonestar Fall 2013 hopefuls

    I'm not sure, but I'm assuming so because it's a lab. Does anyone know for sure if we have to wear our uniforms for 1105?

    At the NH orientation they said scrubs aren't required for lab, but you can wear them. They said street clothing is okay as long as it is appropriate.
