    ADN job outlook in CA

    bay area is pretty hard right now rather it be a new grad adn or bsn. most hospitals here want you to have rn experience. There is new grad residencies at a couple of hospitals but some want you to have BSN. This is the issue im coming across. Im getting my experience at a SNF/rehb, as is alit of my class mates. been licensed and working 4 months, graduated in december. A few get hospital jobs but you have to know somebody to get in.
  2. yea that's low, most start at 30-40 an hour. Thats what majority offered me some offered 35

    A&P 2 with microbiology

    if you finished a&p with a 67 i wouldn't take it with another class, especially micro. You will end up possibly getting low grades in both. Dont worry about a time line just try to make the good grade,

    Nasty/aggressive patients

    yes i get those patients now in nursing school and i learned that we just get the job done and deal with it. try to cluster your duties with those pts. and just bother them when its time to give meds. of course you do your checks to make sure they are ok but just try to give them space to keep your stress down

    Any RNs considering medical school?

    don't want to do med school cause i love the pt interaction w/ nursing. Ido know how it feels to have some boring clinical days though. Before you give up on nursing maybe the hospital where your doing your rotations aren't as interesting or have enough action for you. I just finished a rotation at a level 1 trauma center and it was amazing. It reminded me of grey anatomy, lol. Before you give up finish out school and try out different areas in the field first. you came all this way and it comes easy to you. it may be your calling after all. good luck

    Tutoring...Desperate for help!

    if you know what material is being covered in the class or whats coming up on their exams you can start there. You might have to pick a student instead of waiting for them to respond. Yes they may feel uncomfortable at first if they don't know the answer but thats where the topic of discussion can start. Ask how are they doing on the exams and where would they like there scores to be.

    Getting pregnant during last semester or during new job?

    i would say start trying around summer because pregnancies are never predictable. That way you can finish school and possibly your nclex exam . Classmate just had the same problem but she was due around spring break. Needless to say she chose to be induced so she could come back in time before spring break was over and ended up needing a c section. Her dr wouldn't clear her to do clinicals and our teachers required that form because coming back that fast could cause issues. She wasn't allowed to return until the fall semester and now she's a semester behind.

    First semester- feels like drowning

    record your lectures if you can, play them in the car, on the bus, train and where ever else you go. Even when you go to sleep. thats he way i was able to make the info stick in the beginning

    Old nurse won't retire

    I'm sure its hard for her to retire because as you stated nursing the pts, and her fellow employees is all she has. she has no kids, husband has died, and maybe she understands that once she retires she will be alone which is scary. Maybe someone can talk to her about what her plans are for her after retirement. Give her the option to always volunteer or even educate future nurses. Yes she now has a limp, don't move around as fast as she use to because her body is deteriorating. As long as she hasn't hurt a pt then she is fine. Its not our place to tell her she needs to retire because she makes the work load harder for others. That conversation needs to be taken up with the proper staff if you feel like a pt safety is in jeopardy. She has given her all to her career and i wish her the best because this will be a scary transition for her when she finally makes it.
