    Broward College nursing program Fall 2023

    I went to Central because I was in the LPN to RN transition program at the time. My husband went to South but North was always considered the easiest. Yes, we also took those two together Pharm and math. Honestly, just push through it. Back then it w...

    Broward College nursing program Fall 2023

    During my time we had professors give tests that were irrelevant to what we were taught. I fight so hard during one of my exams, I woke up early in the morning, drove there with 15 of my classmates for the instructor to RESCAN the Scantron. The 6 tha...

    Broward College nursing program Fall 2023

    I've been. 2015. Brutal. Lots of test banks being sold, previous professors were sketchy, the stress was unlike any I ever experienced. I lost weight. I cried. I had to retrack. I would never do it again. Good luck though!

    What is your minimum base pay on Covid-19 unit???

    I work a covid exclusive unit. I get $27 base pay with night/ weekend differentials. I'm immunocompromised. Not. Worth. It. I'm jumping into travel nursing because honestly, if I HAVE to care for covid patients I may as well get fair compensation for...

    Mandatory Hurricane Evacuation - Can I be Forced to Work?

    Evacuate where?? We don't get orders to evacuate. The Keys did, but evacuation had risks. A lot of these women are HIGH RISK. Finding a high risk OB on short notice AND in an area you evacuated to is next to impossible. Our facility also withstood An...

    Mandatory Hurricane Evacuation - Can I be Forced to Work?

    Um no. OP specifically states if she's required to work at a hospital that was ordered to be evacuated by the Governor yet the hospital has chosen to stay open.

    New nurse and I had a breakdown at work

    Be VERY CAREFUL about that move. I had the SAME issue. I was on Tele and the hours were killer with my classes. I only function well on night shifts so day shift I spent my time nauseated with headaches and anxiety with exhaustion. They "offered" a d...

    Mandatory Hurricane Evacuation - Can I be Forced to Work?

    It's a catch 22. I live in FL which is hurricane central and during Irma (I still hadn't begun working at my hospital) my husband mentioned a coworker evacuated with his family and didn't show up (team A or "during"). He was fired. If we don't show u...
  11. We had a saying in nursing school: "C is for "continue". The reason we said that was because nursing school is difficult! Those who had straight As in HS were freaking out when they got Cs. It truly isn't the end of the world and nobody asks your GPA...

    I've done the same. Once orientation is done all the craziness stops, at least for us.

    New grad need help

    When suggesting nights it's not really easier. I love nights but we have fewer nurses, less resources, the NM is not there, and you become "friends" with Rapid response. Nights is a different beast. Doctors also snap at you when you call their cell p...

    New nurse and I had a breakdown at work

    Actually scheduled classes during work week is normal for me. I had to take an 8-5p class then go to work 6:30a-8pm to then practice and study and go back to class 8-5p to then repeat the cycle. The level of acuity is what creates this disconnect bet...

    Can I please get a Parking Spot!

    Oh yea, I learned one day that nurses, radiologists, PCAs, etc eat in the cafeteria and the doctors have their own lounge with chefs and everything.
