  1. Hello everyone, I am nurse that will relocating from NYC to Florida at the end of the year. I have 1 year experience working with an MLTC as an assessment nurse, and 4+ years working in a hospital with equal experience in clinic (geriatrics and medicine) and Mother-Baby. I am interested in obtaining a care managers position once I move to Florida, but I'm worried it will be a difficult position to be get. I am no longer interested in working on the floor and I have also noticed the pay rate for care managers is a bit higher than floor nurses. Anyone have any advice on what companies hire nurses with no experience in this role, as well as any resume or interview tips for this position. I would highly appreciate it. Side note: I am open to any general advice for a nurse coming from NYC to Florida. Thanks all!

    New Grad as a Assessment Nurse? Need advice

    They told me it would be a 2 week orientation at their office location and then I would follow a preceptor for another 2 weeks. After following a preceptor my case load would start as one case a day, and increase weekly until I receive a max of 13 cases a week. I told them about my concern as a new grad nurse and they said that if I had any troubles to call my supervisor, which doesn't ease my mind at all. It's not a very big organization but it's not small either. I feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place, I need to work but no ones hiring!
  3. Hello everyone, I am a new graduate RN who graduated with her ADN and has been searching for a position in a hospital for 6 months. I haven't even been able to book an interview! I live in NYC and apparently all the city hospitals (which is about 20 hospitals) and some private ones are all frozen and no one is hiring! And even if they were, not many would hire an new graduate RN. I was finally able to interview for a home health position a few days ago and although I haven't received a job offer yet, they called me yesterday to let me know that they are interested and wanted to know if I had any other job offers. I get their final decision today. They are considering me for two positions, Field Assessment Nurse and Intake Coordinator. The Intake Coordinator does the initial assessment, which checks to see if the client needs fits what we have to offer, and the field assessment nurse does all the follow up assessments after they have been enrolled in our plan. From what I was told all I will be doing regardless of the position is assessments (no medication administration, dressing changes, etc.) which is kind of a bummer because I feel that I'll lose all my skills. So my questions are: Is this an appropriate position for a new grad RN? Will it make it harder in the future for me to be able to get a position at a hospital? Also, what is your experience with home care? Do you love it? Hate it? Why?

    Well technically you can't really finish sooner you just have a lighter load every semester. And yes, right now I start at 4:30 everyday except for Friday, which I have off. You may not have classes at 4:30 but since you're an evening student you have to be prepared to have class anytime between 4:30 - 11 while you're in the program.

    So far, I like the program. However, this is only my first semester. Next semester I start clinicals and it will be way tougher than the 1st semester. Eventhough, the first semester is not exactly a piece of cake. My advice is to keep your options open and apply to as many programs as you can. That way you have the ability to choose whatever you feel will fit you best.

    Hi Chris, I'm an evening student. Yes the program is now 18 months vs. 2 years. Summer classes are pretty much mandatory because it's a regular schedule like in spring or fall that's why the program is shorter now.

    The reason why at the time I was so worried about this school is because I received a lot of negative feedback from former and current students. However, most of the students who started the year before I did, said that my class and every class that starts after us, is pretty lucky. Not only do we graduate in a smaller amount of time, but the school is slowly getting a hang on things. I have really enjoyed the program so far. Of course there are some things and policies I would change but overall I am very grateful for the opportunity I have been given. This is what I wanted the most for a very long time and I wanted to make sure I was making the right decision with this school. So far everything is good and I am happy to be attending. Good luck to all who are starting this fall, If you have questions or concerns don't hesitate to ask.

    St. Paul's is NOT NLN Accredited. A membership and accreditation are not the same things. For accredited programs you have to check the ACEN website. If NLN accreditation is of utmost importance to you, I suggest you look into another school. We are not even in the process of becoming NLN accredited. We are only ABHES accredited, and that might only apply to the Medical Assistant program, I'm not sure.

    St Paul's actually has tutoring for the HESI. I went before I took it and it really helped me for the math.

    I didn't leave any money to hold my seat. I don't think they do that anymore. The reading section was pretty easy for me. I memorized the vocabulary in the book. You actually get the Hesi results right after you finish each section in the main page. When you finish, the admissions counselor will give you your cumalative score.

    Hey, I'm currently a student at St. Paul's, I suggest you memorize your conversions for the math and practice fractions! For me that was mistaken difficult part.

    I also start tomorrow! I was able to pick up everything except my ID on Friday. I'm a bit nervous but excited.

    Hey what supplies is everyone using for school? I feel kind of odd walking into class with a spiral notebook. And when do we get our uniforms?

    Hey, SPSON is most definitely not NLN/ACEN accredited, nor are they in the process of accredidation. They just have a membership with the NLN. They only ABHES accredited, and I think that only applies to their MA program.
