    I go to Weatherford College! And you? A baby in the middle of the program!? Oh my goodness. Good for you for sticking it out! I cant imagine that was easy! My kids are 4 and 5 and I basically feel like Im a zombie most of the time, haha! Between school work and family! Im ready for a break. But no such luck. What are your plans for BSN? I still have a few prereqs left to take, but I know UTA will let you start before you have them completed. But its so much more expensive than Tech!

    Think positively. Literally no one I know has been asked for an interview yet. Ill admit though that I do feel like Ill be pushed to the back of the list, since Im an ADN. I just want a job! Haha. Anyone else here have a family?

    I wouldn't count on any pay difference between an ADN and a BSN. The only difference is that an ADN will be required to complete their BSN within 2 years of hire date at most larger hospitals.

    Havent heard anything today, just a few applications in review... Hopefully we hear something soon. I looked through last years July cohort forum on allnurses and it looked like they started getting offers sometime in March but they also opened up the GN positions earlier, like in January I believe.

    Did you not apply from within? Under your mythr? It wouldn't let me apply externally.

    Downtown I applied for ED, acute medical, mother baby, neuro tele, trauma, and my number one pick, NICU. Downtown is the hospital I live closest to, so its my first pick.

    Hey everyone! I also applied to several THR GN positions! Several of mine also say application under review process, especially the downtown ones. Seems like they are moving along faster. Has anyone had any changes today?

    ADN vs BSN

    I am an ADN student about to start my first semester of nursing school. Once completing this program, I do plan on finishing my BSN through an online program (possible Texas Tech or Tarleton) as quickly as possible. But I want to know a couple things... 1. Am I likely to find an employer who will pay for/reimburse me for completing my BSN or is that just a rumor? 2. Will future employers take me seriously when they see that I finished my BSN through an online program? 3. What kind of job opportunities are there for ADN RNs? I had a non-nursing student make a very snide comment about how I wouldn't be able to find a job as an ADN, and although I usually make a point to ignore negative Nancys like that, this one stuck because I understand that there might be some truth to it. Thanks in advance!

    Weatherford ADN Fall 2015

    So the one stud in one ear won't be a problem? Or is that unprofessional lol. Small price to pay for nursing school, but I love my earing. Yeah my wedding band has diamonds and lots of little little crevices too. They're some cheap bands at walmart. I'll probably buy one.
