    L&D RN in DC/Maryland region

    Thanks for your reply! Holy Cross keeps popping up on various posts that I have made so it’s a definite contender. When did you interview there? (Good luck with the job search!)

    L&D RN in DC/Maryland region

    Hello nurses! I am currently looking to make the switch to L&D in the DC and Maryland area. So I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for hospitals to look into for L&D I would prefer a hospital with low c-section rates. I’d like to hear the good and bad! So please share if you have info! Thanks

    How do you like case management nursing?

    I'm glad to finally hear from someone who was able to break into CM with a little over a year experience in the hospital. I'm approaching the one year mark at my hospital and I'm planning on leaving the bedside as soon as I find something better. I'm really glad I stumbled upon your post. You have given me so much hope!
  4. Hello nurses! I am a new grad nurse working on a vascular/thoracic step down unit in DC. I've been working here since August of 2017 (almost 6 months) and I'm already feeling the burn out! I have signed a contract that will expire in March of 2019 and would have to pay $3500 if I broke the contract. I am seriously considering ambulatory care to be on a normal schedule and have less patients who are severely ill. I know that last statement sounds awful since I'm a nurse in a hospital but I just honestly can't emotionally or physically handle the patients that I see on a day to day basis. I'm always exhausted, I cry before my shifts, and dread going to work days before I even have to go in. I need a change but I'm unsure that given my limited experience if I could land a job in an ambulatory setting (preferably a doctor's office). Any advice on my situation is welcome!

    DC License by Examination Time

    I also just applied to the BON and want to follow this thread. Where are you guys starting in July?
  6. Looking to apply at MS WHC and was wondering when they posted the residency openings. All I see is a post from May 2016. Will they post new ones as openings become available?
  7. Hello, I am currently living in Georgia and will be graduating in May! My husband just found out that he will be attending law school in DC starting in September. However, I know nothing about the hospitals in DC. So if any nurses in the DC area have any tips about the hospitals in the area I would GREATLY appreciate it. What ones have you worked at and loved, which ones would you avoid? Do all hospitals have nurse residency programs? Any knowledge is welcome! A little about me: Attended accelerated BSN program (GPA: 3.5) No CNA/Tech experience Main interest in peds or L&D (my senior practicum is in L&D)

    I talked to Wanda and you have to buy them through the bookstore now. The code we were given doesn't work anymore. I'm a little annoyed by this because I haven't had the best experiences with the GSU bookstore. She said lab kits were available the 7th and when I stopped by on the 7th AND 14th (the date that the bookstore told me I could buy one) they told me that I couldn't buy it. Has anyone else tried since then to get a lab kit?

    I'm able to answer a few of your questions. You have to submit the acceptance form first before you can do the PINS review. As for the FAFSA, I'm assuming you've already finished one for the 2015-2016 academic year. You'll just have to log into the FAFSA website and add Georgia State to your school list so that your financial aid will be sent to the school for the spring semester. The CPR certification has to be done prior to December 14th in order to keep your spot open, all of this information is in the PINS review. So just turn your acceptance letter in as soon as you can. Hope this helps.

    Thanks guys! I got my packet last night and agree, it was a little odd. Wanda Little told me today that the PINS would be open for me to take by the end of the day. Where is everyone getting their CPR certification? I can't attend the class at GSU this weekend because I work during that time so I'm kind of lost as to where to go. Any suggestions?

    Oh, and has anyone else received their acceptance packet? I know mail isn't running today (Veterans Day) but it's getting pretty close to the 7 business days and I'm getting antsy. I need to know when these deadlines are going to be! If anyone gets theirs pleeeeease post the info on here. I'll do the same.

    @gsu.ace.spring2016 I think all of the information about signing up for classes will be in the acceptance packet. My advisor told me that the spots are already reserved. As for the exams, I'm unsure. I had a friend who had to take them and she said it wasn't very hard but she studied for it. Sorry I can't help more.

    Congrats to @annerstine, @firefly22, @endowed, AND @jael1 what an exciting time!! Just curious, @jael1, what program were you accepted into? I still can't believe this is finally happening! It feels like a dream. I'm hoping the deadlines are different for the people who received emails today. It says I won't get mine until 7 to 10 business days from today, which will be past the 13th of November.
