    Got The Vaccine! Share Your Experience

    Got the Moderna vaccine earlier this afternoon. My arm is a little sore, but nothing too crazy. It didn't actually get sore until 6-7 hours later. I feel fine otherwise. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.
  2. Before I became a nurse I worked in delivery driving a box truck for almost 9 years. The money was alright, but the work was just downright brutal, working outdoors at all weather conditions, rigorous and physical, lifting heavy stuff, working 45-50...
  3. I have nothing to add, but I hope your username is based on your love for basketball.
  4. I work in a hospital in Connecticut. My unit along with many others have been converted to Covid-19 only. Yeah, it's real.

    Nursing Tips I have no prior experience in healthcare field

    I had no prior healthcare experience either and got my first job within a few months of graduating nursing school. One thing I did have going is most of my previous jobs I was at for some time (8 years, 5 years). Relax. You'll get a job. May not nece...
  7. Graduated in May 2019, NCLEX in early July, started first job mid-August. I agree, start applying ASAP. Many in my cohort started their searches as early as April. I started applying and set up my first interview within a week or so after graduating,...

    Help failed NCLEX twice

    If you're aware of what you're doing wrong (Read the questions too quickly, don't read the whole thing, overthink) then not sure how other resources are going to help. You need to slow down, ease up on the anxiety, and focus. No NCLEX guide is going ...

    Was RN school easy for you?

    I'm not gonna lie and say it was easy but I wouldn't say it was impossibly hard either.
  10. You're better off leaving now before dumping even more cash into schooling you don't want to begin with. Your parents are being unreasonable. Not everyone is cut out for nursing, or being a star football player, or being a doctor, or a musician, and ...

    Applying for new grad jobs in NYC

    Try applying to hospitals in southwestern CT. Stamford, Greenwich, Norwalk, Bridgeport. All are relatively close to the train stations and taxi/Uber/Lyft is popular around here. All are also fairly close to NYC.

    HELP I don’t know what I’m doing

    This. I'm a very introverted person and do things mostly alone. The first semester and most of second I studied solo 100% of the time, and while it kinda worked, I felt I got more out of it when I also supplemented it with studying in a small group (...

    How Do You Fit In 30mins Of Exercise In Your Work Day?

    I don't do it at work. I make time to workout on my off time. I'm a runner, so even if it means cramming a quick 3 miles after getting home from night shift, that's what it'll be.

    New Nurse, Med Error = Lost Job

    I'm basically 3 weeks off orientation myself. I'll admit that there have been times where I thought I scanned a med and I apparently didn't, sometimes the screen times out and the administration is incomplete. Nobody is perfect. You didn't hurt anybo...
