    Free teaching labor

    I don't mind students typically but sometimes the timing and/or placement is very inappropriate. I was barely a RN for 6 months and was fresh off orientation at my new unit when I got my first student. It was very awkward and uncomfortable. I wasn't ...

    Is this hurting my resume?

    Delgado Charity School of Nursing

    I graduated in 2016. CSN is excellent for preparing you to function as a competent RN on the floor. You need thick skin and resilience to get through the program though. The instructors challenge you to the point of exhaustion and despair.
