    Roseman University ABSN October 2018

    As you know, you must complete the didactic portion of that class prior to clinical rotation. So first and foremost, you need to pass the assessment(s) w/ a 90% or higher. It shouldn't be a problem if you study and your group gets the extra points. It can be very nervewrecking at first, but you'll get used to it. As for as clinicals go, the clinical director will give out the information 2 weeks before the start of the clinical rotation. It is not based on preference. They schedule your group wherever and whenever they can place you. So far, I have been lucky. My group has been at Spring Valley hospital twice (excellent experience for fundies/med surg) and we had Tues, Weds, Thurs (12 hours a day) and the other Sun Mon Tues (12 hours). I remember some groups had clinicals during Saturday too, it just depends. Just pray and hope you get lucky they place you at a hospital that's closeby and manageable days!

    Best hospital in Las Vegas

    Also, as of today, what is the estimated salary or hourly range for a new grad working in Dignity? VHS? & HCA? Any differentials? I would like to explore my options

    Best hospital in Las Vegas

    Hello, I am currently a nursing student at Roseman University in Henderson, NV. I see there are some experienced nurses in this thread. My question is: what are some tips to land a job (as a new grad/no experience) into the emergency department? I have seen that VHS provides opportunities to hire new grads in different units. But, how about Dignity Health/St Rose? What can I do for this hospital system?

    Also, all of the people I have known who has taken up nursing in ANY of the Las Vegas universities, have jobs (In Las Vegas, NV). From my observations and connections, it is very easy for new grads to get a job here (versus Cali, where I am originally from).

    Roseman University ABSN October 2018

    Hi! If any of you have any questions regarding the ABSN program, shoot me some questions! I'll be happy to assist you. I am currently a student in the Henderson campus. I started the ABSN program in February 2018.

    Roseman University Nursing School

    I am currently a nursing student in this university. I will be completing my BSN degree by June 2019. (I started February 2018). The nursing program at Roseman has two different tracks: the traditional BSN track (18 months) and the accelerated BSN, known as ABSN (16 months). I am in the accelerated program. So now you're thinking, what is the difference? Well, the traditional track is required to be on campus for all school-related meetings, such as lectures, labs, & assessments. They are in class from Mon-Friday, typically from 8AM - 3PM (I think they get out early on Fridays). The accelerated track does not have any lectures in class. All material is presented online. We have to be on campus for labs and exams. Here's the thing: the Roseman nursing program does not follow traditional semester based courses (like where you take 4 classes, 1 lab, 1 clinical = 17 units). At roseman, they have provided a program where we are "BLOCK" based. For the regular BSN and ABSN (same curriculum, different learning styles), there are 15 blocks. As we progress to the program, we are only focusing on ONE block at a time, meaning that each block is about 2-6 weeks long, depending on the material/course -- basically what I am trying to say is, imagine a whole semester of "MED SURG NURSING" at a regular university in a 4 week class. It's basically like going to summer school (focusing on one class at a time) for 16 months. For the ABSN program, we mainly have to self-teach ourselves the material. We are given reading assignments, discussions, mandatory skills labs, and scheduled exams. For both BSN/ABSN, ALL GRADED MATERIAL MUST BE > or equal to 90%. Meaning all your exams has to be 90% or higher in order to pass. 89% But don't be scared, they have structured this program very well for people to succeed. They really push you to work hard and achieve that 90% or higher. Overall, it is your duty as a student to be on track with all the material assigned so that you may be able to pass your exams (we call it assessments). If you do not pass your exam with 90% OR HIGHER, they offer remediation periods where you may retake that exam, and score that90%>. So far, I have completed half of the program and I love it! I was so scared at first because of the high grades needed to continue throughout the program, but overall, I have learned so much. Especially I learned how to self-manage my time and discipline myself to be on track and learn the material. Also, for clinicals, for example, BLOCK 5/15 is MED SURG 1. There is about 4-5 weeks of lecture material that you mainly focus on. There will be labs and lab exams (starting IVs, passing meds - still need >90% to pass that) during those weeks. After you pass that lecture block with 90%>, you then enter the clinical portion of that block (Med Surg I). This was about 4 weeks long, 3x/week, 12 HOUR SHIFTS. All of Rosemans clinicals for nursing are 12 hours/3x week. Be prepared to wake up at 5AM and sleeping by 7 PM when you get home. For any other information, feel free to ask! I would rate this school a 8/10, only because sometimes they are so unorganized with scheduling and some of the staff members do not show the compassion a nurse should always carry as a professional value.
  7. I am currently a nursing student in Nevada completing my BSN degree. My residence state is California (I moved to NV for nursing school). Many of my relatives (and they are nurses as well) have told me to apply for a California RN license. Upon achieving it, they say that I am eligible to work in Nevada or any other state. I plan to stay in Nevada and work as a new-graduate and get experience, and hopefully move back to California in the future. So... the question is, if I apply for a California RN license, may I still get my new grad experience and work in Nevada with that California license?

    Roseman 18 month program BSN

    Hi, You should read through this thread- https://allnurses.com/nevada-nursing/roseman-university-18-921094.html In one of the very last pages, a girl said she scored a 66% due to low english and reading score. She applied with her teas and interviewed but was put on hold. The university encouraged her to retake the test. Hope this helped!

    Roseman University Fall 2017

    So I took my TEAS this morning and then I made it just on time to interview today. For the TEAS, I recommend studying the secrets mometrix book. It explained the reading, grammar, and math portions thoroughly. For science (basically A&P section), I had taken A&P courses at unlv already so I had knowledge of the subject already which made it easy, and the A&P questions were easy. I scored an overall 81% on the TEAS and studied for about two weeks only. As far as the interview goes, there was about 20-25 applicants at the interview which scares me because this is towards the end of their admissions process and they can only secure a number of people (I think 53-56 per cohort). They did not say how many people have been accepted or how many spots there are left. So if you haven't interviewed I would suggest interviewing next month. The interview was really easy they just asked me about leadership skills, why it is important for a nurse to show compassion and care, and how to deal with negative situations. The writing sample was also easy. They admit you by your GPA (35 points), TEAS (35 points), writing sample (12 points), and interview is 15 points. They will let me know in a matter of two weeks by email to see if I am accepted. I am applying with an 81% TEAS score, 3.5 Science/Math GPA and 3.20 overall GPA. Good luck!!
