    Need help with a dillema

    Just out of curiosity - why does KSU send out letters so late?
  2. I graduated 3 yrs ago and could pretty much get a job at any hospital. Now it's affecting everyone because people are getting laid off and have no insurance but they still get sick. They go to the hospital but the hospital can't get paid because ther...

    Is it difficult to find a job in ATL?

    I graduated 2 years ago and got 3 offers right away. I think there are plenty of jobs for RN's as long as you're flexible as to what area you enter. For example it will be extremely difficult to get into the ICU as a new grad or sometimes something l...

    You will have NO problem getting a job at Grady. When I was a new grad and interviewed there they offered me the job at the 1st interview. Same with several of my fellow graduates.

    Getting into GPC

    I think you're being paranoid. They get so many applications they're not having time to look at your dropping history. I think they only look at gpa, science gpa and net score. I graduated from gpc last year and had not great grades or gpa. My net s...

    Looking for a job in the Atlanta area?

    I work at Emory and they have a great new grad program. Piedmont also has a good one. Grady will hire you AT your interview and say they have a new grad program but I don't know how good it is.

    Looking for flexible Atlanta Georgia School

    Georgia Perimeter College

    She's right. There is no test bank. They make up their own questions. Remember they'll all be application. Like you need to know lab values but they won't ask you straight out, it will be like you need to know the lab value to answer the patient scen...

    Georgia Perimeter College

    I graduated from GPC in May of this year. It was the worst 2 years of my life and I would strongly suggest getting out now while you don't have too much time invested. It's better than getting to the 3rd semester, failing out and then having to wait ...

    Wow! congrats to you on thinking your 1st semester was not that hard! How many classmates have you lost so far? I have to say this program has been a million times harder than I ever thought it was going to be. I only have one month left and I...
