    Texas tech RN-BSN reviews

    Yes, I attended this school for my RN-BSN. It can be complete in 2 or 3 semesters. The classes are not terribly hard, though you will need adequate time management skills to be successful. This is especially true for the last semester, as the work load increases. Nevertheless, I was able to complete the program while working full time as a RN. Hope this helps.

    Which areas in hospital least physically demanding?

    My mom just retired from direct patient care nursing last year, she's a little older than you. She plans to come back to nursing in a different capacity, leaving the bedside/clinic all together. Are you still wanting to provide patient care, or take on a more administrative role? My mom did the latter when she felt that the bedside was physically too hard on her. She is looking to work for an insurance company (she's a NP) doing chart audits in a year or two. I also know of RNs doing telephone triage for insurance companies as well. Some patient care care areas that I can think of that may be a good fit for an experienced med/surg nurse like yourself: 1) wound care nurse (could be hospital or home health) 2) dialysis clinics 3) PACU 4) PICC line nurse 5) nursery (babies aren't heavy but you may still be busy on your feet a lot.) 6) urgent care center doing triage (some of the ones here are open 9am -9pm, some are 24 hours, it all varies) 7) lactation consultant You could also do a combo of a few things. Such as work PRN 12 hour shifts in your favorite area, and then work part time doing something non demanding such as educator, case manager, etc. these are all things my mom and I discussed for her transition/retirement plan. Hope it helps & best of luck to you in continuing your journey!

    SAC LVN to RN mobility

    Hello, I am a former student for the mobility program. I attended for 3 semesters before withdrawing from their program. It was extremely unorganized. The NCLEX pass rate was very low as well. This was all in 2014, hopefully they have gotten better. I ended up graduating from a different RN program elsewhere in SA. Hope this helps!

    Houston hiring new grad nurses.

    Okay, well these are the major hospital systems: memorial hermann Texas children's Harris health CHI st Luke's Tenet Healthcare HCA Gulf Coast Shriners I recommend search "new graduate RN residency" and applying to those. Majority of the ones that start this summer have been filled, but there are some that are now taking applications for the fall. Do not be afraid to take a nursing home or home health care job in the mean time to hold you over. Best of luck!

    Houston hiring new grad nurses.

    Hey there. It looks like it depends on if you have a BSN or ADN. Majority of the Texas Medical Center hospitals only hire new grad BSN. The suburban ones tend to hire ADNs.

    Baptist School of Health Professions (Fall 2015)

    I submitted all materials for the June 15th deadline and I am getting anxious waiting its only been 1 week though so I need to be patient also.., applied for the LVN program for the June 1 deadline and never heard anything back... It's been 3 weeks for that. Maybe this is a good thing because I'm being considered for the RN?

    Congrats! Which day did you apply?

    Baptist School of Health Professions (Fall 2015)

    Hey everyone! Congrats to everyone that got accepted. I just retook my TEAS today so I can still make the final deadline of June 15th. I did soooo much better this time. Amazing what happens when you are prepared, right? So I am guessing I won't find out for another 2 weeks if I got in or not. I also applied for the LVN so I was assume I would hear back from that one first, maybe next week? We will see. Praying to get in the RN program though! Did anyone else apply for the RN after the priority deadline of May 15th?

    Baptist School of Health Professions (Fall 2015)

    Hey everyone. Well, I took my TEAS test and I did great on everything except for the math. I missed the mark by 3% . I should have studied more, but honestly, I wasn't planning on applying for this program and by the time I found out I was, I had 7 days to prepare for the TEAS . I did speak with the advisor, and she recommended that I retake the TEAS since I was so close. She added more test dates before the final deadline of June 15th. I went ahead and registered, and also ordered the ATI book on Amazon. Im hoping to get a better score on it this time. OAN: I looked into the LVN program at Baptist and noticed the TEAS requirements were lower. I went ahead and applied for that program also. Hoping for the RN of course but LVN is still a great second choice. Good luck to everyone & I am looking forward to hearing who got accepted. God Bless! :)
