  2. Hello ladies and gentleman, I just got accepted into RN school (yay!). I was convicted of a DUI approximately 6 years ago, I was 18 years old at the time. Since that time, I have grown as a young man, matured, and am making better decisions. Not to s...

  5. My goal is to become an ICU nurse one day. Could anyone inform me on the steps to becoming a nurse in the ICU. Also, the amount of experience required, and some good tips/strategies. Thank you in advanced!
  6. Ca Nursing School and Criminal Background?

    I have decided to seek legal guidance on the matter. My nightmare would be the nursing school giving me the shaft unlawfully due to the pure competitive nature of nursing.

    Did you get an acceptance?
  8. I have been an EMT for a total of 4 years and my goal is to an ER-Nurse. Would it be worth mentioning on a job application one day? Or possibly during an interview? I understand their scopes and roles are MUCH different, but I believe it is still per...
  9. Will my EMT experience help get a job as an ER-Nurse?

    Thank you everyone for the wonderful advice. It was made official this week that I have been accepted into nursing school. So now the true work begins. I purchased a pharm textbook and began over viewing the material. My goal is to be as prepared as ...

  20. 2011 DUI (18 y.o) will it destroy employment opportunities?
