  1. COVID and Family

    I am wondering about this as well. We have a 6 month old that my mother in law (late 60s) cares for on the days I work. Through the Summer and fall, I cared for COVID patients sporadically. My hospital had a COVID unit so those patients didn’t usuall...
  2. What are you doing at home?

    Thanks for your response. It sounds to me like what you are doing is definitely not being too worried. I’m sure it is terrrible to have to distance from your husband... it is awful for me to not be able to be physically close with my wife during this...

  8. I am going to be starting an ADN program this coming fall and have several options on the table. I'm curious to hear any thoughts on the importance of going to school in the city/region that I eventually want to work. I would think it might make a di...
  9. Pax-RN scores

    I am applying for fall entry to an ADN program and have a made a big mistake. I took the PAX-RN on Saturday thinking I would get my results immediately, however, the school at which I took the test (different from the school to which I am applying) o...
  10. Kentucky job market for new RNs

    Racer15, was that recently? Do you know if your classmates had similar experiences? I had thought the market might be better in western Kentucky as opposed to the bigger cities...
  11. I am embarking on a career change into the nursing field and am trying to decide between attempting to get into a competitive second-degree BSN program or jumping into an ADN program instead with the hope that I could get a job and do a bridge progra...
  12. Best path for second career

    Interesting thought. I hadn't realized that was an option. Thanks for your help!
  13. Best path for second career

    Hey everyone, I am a 28-year-old married male looking at transitioning from a career in journalism/publishing to nursing. It seems to me that my best option would be an accelerated BSN program as I already have a Bachelor's degree in journalism. My w...
