    My career is costing me my mental health and I am afraid

    Hello, I disagree with some other posts. Nursing is challenging like every job but it most certainly isn’t like this at every job you go to. In my opinion nurses tend to exaggerate, complain and tell others to get over it when a working situation is horrible and that they better get used to it. I work in several different nursing positions including intensive care and my experience is NOTHING like yours. You have to find a job that is not so abusive. There is probably a new grad program for this reason, they can’t keep nurses so have to use and abuse new grads. You have mental and physical health issues and those are the top priority. My advice would be to seek out medical FMLA and legal advice to end the contract. There is no way you’ll pay if you have this all documented. You are a protected worker under the disability act so I would call them first thing and ask how to end this contract now.

    Hi Mrs. D- I am beginning this week. Who are you taking for health assessment? They are allowing me to take NUR 104 & 105 as well as Health Assessment. I am also taking biochem to fulfill their requirement for a Chem class too. I have professor Candy I believe for health assessment on Thursdays. What about you?

    Mrs. D, did you begin the program in the Spring? How do you like it so far?

    Yes, I work at Lahey on a Detoxification unit. I'll likely start there. Although, I would love to work at Mass Gen or Brigham. My other degree wasn't at Salem State. I went to school in a different area!

    Technically no prerequisites were required but what I mean by prerequisites is all of the non-nursing classes. All of your biology courses, chemistry, math and all general education requirements. I live in Hooksett, about an 70 minutes from Salem State, not looking forward to the traffic either.

    Is there another professor for Health Assessment? I chose Salem State over Fitchburg, Northeastern and MCPHS because it had such a high pass rate for the NCLEX and most of the reviews I read were great. Is the program a solid program? I also heard a lot of material is not difficult but just time consuming.

    I was thinking about deferring to Fall. I heard it is easier to matriculate then. The only prerequisite course that I still need to take is Chemistry. If it is going to be a huge hassle, I will just start in the Spring, but I am commuting from New Hampshire so I would prefer not to start in the middle of winter.

    Mrs D- they let you defer your admission?

    My advice would be to take A&P 1 and 2, as well as a college level statistics course. Most CC are cheaper and you could continue having the flexibility of a CC. SSU Nursing program doesn't allow part-time. I believe when deciding on transfer students they want someone with a strong math and science background. I was allowed to transfer 70 credits in.

    Hi Mrs. D, I received my acceptance letter into SSU program for Spring 2015, wondering if you have heard back yet?
