    New grad, got ICU!! ANY TIPS?!!

    Hi there, New RN here, recently graduated and landed my first job in the ICU. I know this will be tough, but hopefully worth it! I'm excited but also super nervous. I've had orientation all this week and will be in the unit with my preceptor next week. What can I do to be the best (brand new) ICU nurse I can be? All the tips you can offer will be greatly appreciated🙏 Keep it real!! (But please no rude comments🙂)

    NCLEX 2020

    New RN, how to pick a specialty?

    Hi everyone! A little about myself... I have been an LPN working in an urgent care for two years now and am 60 DAYS from graduating from my RN program! I have always envisioned myself working with trauma/critical care of some sort. At an urgent care you don't experience much of that (LOL) I am thinking about doing a nurse residency program in either the ICU or the ER. (I am also very interested in cardiac) My question is... Do you recommend having 1 year of med/surg experience or diving straight into the department you like? I am just aiming to be the best RN I can be. As this has been a long time goal and I'm so passionate about my career field. Thanks for reading! ♡ - Nicole, LPN (soon RN 🙂 )

    Polk State College Nursing Transition Program 2018

    I hope that will be the same case this time around! Thank you for your response. How do you like the program so far? What's your schedule like if you don't mind me asking?
  11. Hi! I am currently an LPN looking to further my education/career. I will be applying to the PSC nursing transition program this May for Fall 2018. I am wondering if anyone knows a general idea of the point range that get students accepted into the transition program? I currently just have 103 pts which I don't think is enough, so I will be retaking my TEAS soon. I hope I can get a high enough score to get in!

    PHSC 2017 Spring Nursing Hopefuls

    Hey guys! I've been keeping up with this thread but have never commented... I originally was put on the waiting list for Porter and West LPN program and the West RN program. Today I received an offer for the LPN program at West campus. I will be accepting this spot unless I receive the spot for the RN program (which I am sad I have not gotten) but I'm glad I will be starting my nursing education somehow! Is anyone else on here attending the LPN program at West campus??
  16. Hey guys, Just wondering if anyone knows a range of teas scores that get accepted to the LPN program at PHSC? I haven't been able to get into a RN program so I'm trying out the LPN route. Thanks for your help!
