They expect a certain percentage of new employee losses during orientation, after orientation and within the probation period.
I think, at this point, it's ok to be a statistic.
Good luck in your future endevors,

I don't mean to side track the thread (even though my comment is somewhat off-topic).
School nurses in Washington state earn less than a bus driver, even if you have a Bachelors degree.
It really is a great job though. And a different kind of stress, but nothing every one of you can't handle. I loved working with the middle school kids. I know that I make changes in the kids I cared for and their families, and they made a change in mine!
Great Job!!! And Great people!!!!!

Policy is that we carefully wrap the baby in nursery blankets and place in a cardboard box, similar to a file box. That way visitors have no idea what is in the box and it is not obvious to the parents.

University of Colorado- Denver is a GREAT program!! And if given the choice, I would go there first. At least when I was looking, they were a Top 10 Nursing School in No. Amarica. My understanding though, is that they will not accept out of state students. I was very disappointed.

VERY GOOD point here. Start preparing for your NCLEX now. Take 3 practice questions a day and read them over, learn the concept and the stratagy for answering the question correctly.
I think it is Suzanne that had a nearly bomb proof plan for passing NCLEX and it all starts now.
