  2. Hi there, im a BSN with about 3 years experience in Trauma ICU. I’m looking to move to Dallas or Austin and wondering which are the best level 1 Trauma centers to work for. I prefer academic hospitals. What can can I expect to make? Currently gettin...
  3. Cath Lab?

    Thank you for that resource! I'll be training a few days a week for a month and a half then maintain a shift or two a month so I'm hopeful I'll be able to maintain my skills. It's a small lab so it's not quite as specialized as a langer, tertiary med...
  4. Cath Lab?

    Just accepted a position prn in a cardiac cath lab in a small hospital. Super excited for this opportunity but wondering what resources to use to keep my skills up (sounds like I'll be working a few times a month and taking call) since I've never don...
  5. Taking a break from NP School?

    Thats what I’m hoping for if I do take a break. At the 1.5 mark with being currently on track to graduate in two years, taking a year off would allow me to really hone in on some experience and build my skills.

  11. GPA for Children's Nurse Residency

    Hi there, My dream is to work at a Children's hospital, but I doubt that my GPA will be any higher than a 3.2 when I graduate. I already have a degree, and speak Spanish fluently so I don't know if that helps, but is there anything else I can do to s...
  12. Hi there, I'm currently in an accelerated BSN program (my first degree is in Biology) and am contemplating a PhD in nursing. I'm hesitant to do a BSN to PhD program, because I don't know if I have the research experience yet. I'm pretty sure I want t...
  13. Acute Care DNP?

    I'm a BSN student right now and torn between all of the specialties I listed. I guess the way I worded my post doesn't make sense. For Acute Care - Adult, I'd be interested in ER or SICU or MICU. For neonatal, obviously NICU. Would Adult Acute care...
