    100k in loans worth it?

    Go for it if this is what you really want to do. Debt sucks but that's life. You'll be ok no matter what you choose.

    OHSU online MSN Leadership program

    Hello, I am considering applying to OHSU's online MSN program in Leadership and I was curious if anyone has any experience with this program or another one of their online MSN programs? Thank you for your time.

    Forced to resign after 7 weeks

    I agree with Johsonmichelle. Keep it off. There is no reason to mention it especially since it was during your orientation period. I am so sorry to hear about your experience. I had a similar experience and it sucks but, you'll be fine. Just keep moving forward.

    Yes! Thank goodness! My HR rep just told me this morning that Nurses are exempt and I'm so relieved . Thanks!

    Hiring Freeze

    Thanks, xkc3158. When they had the freeze in 2012, a fellow RN said his job was on hiatus for 3 months. Not sure if this will be similar or not. I just hate all of the not knowing and waiting.

    Hiring Freeze

    Yes. I was given a tentative offer about a month and a half ago pending all of the paper work and pre-employment physical. I went into to talk with HR today and get fingerprints and she told me that due to the hiring freeze she can not tell me when I will be able to start work at th VA and all we can do is wait at this point. Nurses and all medical professionals are being affected. She said she had to call other nurses, docs ... from other states and tell them the news and they weren' t happy but, it's out of their hands right now. Super frustrating and disheartening.

    Providence Portland, OR NEW GRAD Residency 2017

    Nothing on my end yet. I was hoping to hear back from them last week but I'm hopeful we will hopefully hear back from them by tomorrow or by the end of the week.
  13. Hello All, I was curious if anyone has gotten invited to a second or final interview from any of the Oregon 2017 New Grad programs? If anyone has any advice or experience in working with these organizations or completing a NEW Grad program themselves, it would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time. Cheers!
  14. Hello, I was wondering if anyone applied for Adventist's New grad RN residency? Is Adventist a good company to work for?
