I have been accepted to spring 2017 FNP program at Kent State University. I also applied to OU and am waiting to hear.
Has anyone started either one of these programs and have an opinion on them? I'm pretty sure KSU is more highly regarded, but would like to hear from anyone with experience with either school.
I am getting offers from them starting at 40 an hour, guaranteed 48 hour work week. has anyone worked for them? this seems like so much money to me. My recruiter quoted 15,000 gross in 6 weeks!! too good to be true?
When i was in nursing school, one of my instructors told us that his mother is an RN, and after about 5 years of nursing, he was making the same that his mother made, and she had been a nurse for 20 plus years.
I am a new grad who just started at at Cleveland clinic hospital. I am curious what the top of the pay scale is, i started at 23 an hour, which is what everyone starts at.
I would like to hear from RN's who never got their BSN, and what they make. I have always heard there is a "cap" and nurses don't continue to make more and more money with experience.
I work at a Cleveland Clinic hospital, and i definitely think going straight for the RN is the way to go. Alot of hospitals are hiring less and less LPN's. I think the main campus got rid of all of their LPN's. Every LPN on my unit is in school to get their RN's.
Hope this helps.
I took the NCLEX Friday and the licensure verification page on the Ohio Board of Nursing still says "pending"!!! Everyone else i know who took it had their results by noon the next day.
Is this a bad sign?? What does it say if you don't pass? I know if you do, it says "approved" Maybe pending means i didn't pass?
I'm going crazy here. Did it take anyone else this long to get their results and if so, did you pass?
How long do you have to wait to take the NCLEX again if you don't pass???? I'm taking mine Friday and am not feeling very confident.
I thought you could take it again right away, but someone told me you have to wait 45 days?? Does anyone know for sure? Thanks.

I just graduated and am 40. I never thought that it was "too late" or i was "too old" to get into nursing. I wanted to change in life for the better, to have a career for myself, so that is what i did.
I truly believe it is never too late to do anything, or change anything in your life. what else are we here for? To just do the same thing every day after we reach a certain age? Life is about growing and changing.
See, this is where i get confused. I did not check yes to any of those quesitons. DUI's are,or were at the time, misdemeanors. I have never been convicted of any of the things they ask. They ask if they were committed "during the course of practice" and the last question specifically says "this does not include alcohol related offenses" Never once does it say to disclose information about a misdemeanor committed while not in practice.
