    Nassau Community College Nursing: Fall 2021 Applicants

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/1153449925116224/?ref=share Here is a new FB group for the Fall semester.
  3. Hi all I plan on using this post for whoever feels to share their story for the same NCC RN nursing program. So far I have taken every pre-req (Stat, A&P's, Micro, Psych, Pathophys etc. with all A's. I just have ENG102 which I will take in the Summer. But I got a 76 on my TEAS so I plan on taking it again. Surely that is not a competitive score. I hear that there is a point system at NCC. I don't know how that goes. I also plan on attending the session coming up in a few days.

    nurse, per diem, needs a second job!¡ Really?

    Thanks all. When I was hired I was told there is a shortage in the facility by the employer. So I expected to be more in demand. By a staff member I was told there is I high turnaround there. I'm still excited to work as a nurse and will keep searching. Oh and FYI I did 7 days orientation which I don't get paid for until I get 5 full paid days completed. I have only done two working days. My eyebrow is up with that too.

    nurse, per diem, needs a second job!¡ Really?

    Please respond New lpn grad (91avge. On my transcript, not easy), first job hired as per diem 2 weeks in. (I know they do per diem to keep from giving benefits, I don't need them I'm ok with that rather more pay for now) They don't pay overtime, no problem. FYI.. Live in NY But my issue is my schedule. It is maybe two days here, no days here. I keep calling they throw me a day here. Then when I work they just switch my assignment no heads up, I find out by someone asking me why I'm on this floor. I do a good job and I'm competent. I just feel like I'm a nurse being treated like less than. I just feel I deserve more respect. The pay is great just don't get any hours to enjoy it. I was sch. for Monday, Dec. 1st. to work 7-3. Then I get a call Sunday night saying it was a mistake. But can I work 3-11. I said I was busy (professional tone of course) because I felt like I was being jerked around and not respected. This is now December so I ask for my sch for the month figure they now have the chance to add me in(I came in the middle of Nov. so I waited for new month) they didn't call me back. It seems they want me more "on call" than anything. I have an interview tomorrow I didn't plan to juggle but I have a mortgage to pay. Anyone else have this issue. Or have incite?

    What type of test did you get during your job interview?

    Didn't get dosage yet.

    My hesitancy with agencies is bc they dont give you a cut of what you would make. I figure cut the middle man out and do for myself what they would have done when they get to me!

    What to do about a low ball job offer

    Snatch it two reasons. One you keep looking until you find another. Two you also gain some sort of paid experience while paying bills.

    LTC are elderly pt so I figure I need to know meds but what type is my question. I know I need to know timemanagement, bedsores (signs and stages, wet to dry etc), falls...? Where do I channel my expertise?
