    Student Worker: Nursing Home

    It isn't an advertised position sorry to say, I literally just walked in and asked for an application. I'm getting my CNA license starting in February and thought I should start getting my foot in the door at least. Maybe I should try volunteering?

    Student Worker: Nursing Home

    Hello Everyone! I am currently filling out a job application for a local nursing home, and I've came across a stumbling block. I'm a recent High School graduate, and I've heard and learned that one of the best ways to get into nursing is by working in a nursing home/facility. So here I am filling out my information and I don't even know what exactly I am to apply for! Should I write 'Transporter' or 'Resident Assistant' or leave it blank? But I can't just leave it blank that's unprofessional! I have never been in the working field before, mainly because I was more focused on school and my father is the only one who works. Can I please have some advice in this? I have my heart and mind set on nursing, but I don't want to be "shooed" away because of my inexperience. Please help! xo Yarlene

    How do I begin my nursing education??

    Okay, so let me see if I got this. So I go to community college to go for my CNA (certified nursing assistant), then begin my associates through community college for 2 years to get my ASN/ADN. From there, I transfer to a University for another 2 years to get my BSN. Am I on the right track so far? From there I graduate with my Bachelor's and can begin working as a BSN at a hospital. (with the option of advancing to my Master's later on) How does this sound?

    How do I begin my nursing education??

    Thank you everyone for your feedback! SlinkyheadRN I agree with not going to Private school, and thank you llg for detailing my options. I believe I would have to go with Option 4 just as SeasideGinger also suggested. So then, the first two years of community college are your Associates of Science in Nursing? And with completion of another 2 years at a University, becomes Bachelor's of Science in Nursing? What then is the difference between ADN and ASN?
  5. Hello Everyone :) I am 18 years old, and I just recently graduated from High School. I have been interested in nursing for over a year now, but did not begin any type of research until second semester of Senior Year. In High School, I was very adamant about graduating first before thinking of college because I was failing a class and had to take before and after school tutoring which paid off in the end :) Now that High School is over, I want to go to college to study nursing, but everything is just so confusing for me. I've searched YouTube in hopes of someone taking their time to explain to me (I'm a visual learner) and I've tried reading blogs and using Google as a tool as well. Now that it is Fall of 2014, I want to start school as soon as possible in the winter, and I don't know if that means community college or University. I read a lot of forums about ADN vs BSN and I decided that BSN would be the best for me since it is recommended/required. But I have trouble understanding which comes first? Is it BSN-RN or RN-BSN? I don't want to make the mistake of applying to the wrong schools. If anyone can help me make any sense of it all, I would greatly appreciate your input and your time. Thank you! :)
