  1. Did I ruin my chances of ever becoming a nurse?

    Any update as to the consequences of the positive result?
  2. Did I ruin my chances of ever becoming a nurse?

    Wow a lot of premature negativity in this thread. I'll start by giving you the benefit of the doubt and close with a positive message for you. Simple answer: All you need is a letter from your doctor stating that this is a prescription medication and...
  3. Fibromyalgia, Anxiety, Depression - Help!

    To follow up on Tricia, I am very interested what region you work. I'm actually living Canada and intend to go back to the U.S. because I cannot stand rotating shifts! Employers here in Canada cannot accommodate in many provinces because the union ...
  4. Saint Louis University

    Hello, Short answer from my perspective: I didn't do the direct-entry MSN, but rather the post-BSN option. I also went to Saint Louis University for my 4-year BSN. As such I cannot really speak to how manageable the course load is. Since I already...
  5. Thanks for all the info. I ultimately decided to go staff in a heavily unionized west coast region since the hourly rate was basically the same as the travel rate once you considered all the benefits included.
  6. Too soon to travel?

    Swellz and Hiddencat make very good points. I don't want to discourage you because only you can know what is best for you. The difference between academic centers and smaller community EDs can be quite shocking. They are completely different types...
  7. Definitely had nothing to do with working in a level 1 trauma center. I worked in a small ER for my first ER job and nothing more when approved without requirement for OSCE. I think that U.S.-educated RNs are generally well received with minimal ha...
  8. Hello, This is a two part question: 1.) I had a question about housing for someone who is itinerant. I was planning on taking an assignment and also moving to the area where the assignment is taken and then taking subsequent assignments after comple...
  9. To address your concerns: 1.) I am honestly not at all sure how they will assess you in light of having an accelerated BSN. My hope is that they do not give you any issues. There are regulatory assessment frameworks that might work against you. I ...
  10. Hello, I decided to make this post to share my unique experiences with NNAS and CRNBC as an U.S.-educated RN who recently passed assessment for licensure in BC. I did not have to to an SEC or OSCE. I was granted my BC Canadian license rather seamles...
  11. NP program at Saint Louis

    Hello, I was just readmitted to the Psych NP program in fall 2016. I started in Fall of 2013 and took just Adv. Patho and Family development. I was admitted directly after graduating a BSN program. I wanted more varied nursing experience and had s...
  12. Hello all, Similarly to many stories shared here, I was offered a position at St. Alexius in Bismarck (they are finishing up the background check -- I don't anticipate any issues). I'll introduce myself a bit in hopes I find other transplants and f...
