Some things I also considered (and am still considering as a part-time job) are scribe (CEP America or Scribe America) or CNA (thinking about enrolling in Contra Costa Nursing Academy's CNA program this summer)
If anyone has any insight/advice about SFSU's nursing school I would like to hear about it. I was able to see their admissions office when I went in for my interview, but I didn't get a chance to explore the labs, simulations, or classrooms.
I'm also form the Richmond area so I would most likely be commuting to school/clinicals on a daily basis.
I would love to hear feedback from anyone that has gone through their program before:)
And has anyone started a FB page for the fall 2016 cohort?
Best of luck to all. Nursing is a journey of growth, progress, improvement, and learning. Let's continue to stay bold and positive!
