    So Much For Michigan Becoming Compact

    So true.. It does get very expensive. I have a MI license. The obstacle is that I'm required to have a compact license for my job and would lose compact privileges if I moved to MI. I feel so foolish for not taking into consideration this bill might ...

    So Much For Michigan Becoming Compact

    This is such a letdown. My work requires that I have a compact license, and I had been planning to move to Michigan once the bill was enacted.

    California RN License Verification

    I've been waiting 3 1/2 months for CA BON to send verifications to two other states. Talk about frustrating.
  5. I would recommend requesting the California license to be your initial license when you request authorization to take the NCLEX. If you request WA first, and then apply for endorsement into CA, it will add at least a month (but probably months) to g...

    Women's and Children Telephone Triage

    Biggest frustration: Keeping the calls within the allotted time frame. Some callers want to give you their life story, and it is usually not necessary to have that much info to make a recommendation. A really great day is when all calls...

    Have FT and PRN Jobs. Include PRN on Resume?

    Yes, definitely put in on your resume. It's valid, recent experience. You won't need to indicate that the job is per diem on your resume. However, you will need to list this job on your application, and you might have to list your per diem status the...
  11. Consider recording your lectures if you're allowed and use the recordings to fill in your notes.

    RN school easier for LPNs?

    I was in an LPN-to-RN program, and the theory classes were intense and required a huge amount of studying. The clinical portion was the part that less stressful.
  14. If you still have your Nursing Skills textbook, review the processes, including the videos on the textbook's website, for all of the tasks you've mentioned. You can also review YouTube videos. If you still have your med-surg textbook, thoroughl...

    ADN and BSN in same year.

    If you fail out of one program, you may not be eligible to continue to participate in the other program. Many nursing schools will not accept applicants that failed out of another program. I would recommend going the ASN route to save money, th...
