  1. For those of you endorsing from other states hat had to send in a fingerprint card for the background check, how long did it take for it to process? There's a few variances in how long to expect on the website and I was just wondering what people's experiences were.

    What's night shift like in pediatrics?

    I'm just a tech but the workflow is totally different where i work. We also get more admits at night versus days but we also generally don't deal with discharges

    Are there lab sciences in nursing school?

    I had labs like that for my pre requisites like chem and microbiology and such but none once I reached the nursing core

    Is it time for a new Philadelphia thread?

    There are usually tons of postings at the hospitals you listed that look for RNs with experience. Also as a cost of living side note, think about perhaps moving to a philly suburb in PA or NJ if cost of living becomes too much or looking for a roommate

    Externship Offer Dilemma

    good point. It's more of a convenience/ rent thing than a homesick thing. I ended up accepting the third hospitals offer!
  8. I would look at cost, where they do clinical and where the grads end up working

    NJ externship dilemmas!

    Hi fellow NEw Jerseyans!! I am lucky enough to say I have 3 offers for nurse externships this summer. All in different portions of NJ. I'm having a tough time choosing and was hoping for some insight! I would like to eventually do pediatrics and or emergency nursing (possibly peds ED) Offer 1 - From a 460 bed community hospital around 20 mins from me. I would work as a CNA for June and July then do an extern program in August. Pros: close and can live at home, competitive pay. Has pediatrics and emergency department Cons: lower acuity patients and staffing issues, can't really work during the school year due to distance from my school. Would rather not work full time during my last month before school begins if possible Offer 2- a 271 bed community hospital an hour from me. 8 week extern program working full time then per diem CNA until graduation Pros: part of hospital system I want to apply to on graduation, not too far from school so could work there during the year. Cons: far from my house and down the Parkway which could be a nightmare due to shore traffic in the summer. No pediatrics aside from a few beds in the ED. Lower pay rate Offer 3- a 500+ bed teaching hospital closer to school (1.5 hrs away from home). 8 week program than kept on as per diem CNA Pros- well known hospital that has peds and is a level 1 trauma center. Easiest to also work during the year. Competitive pay. Have a friend also accepted to the program that could carpool with me during the year. Cons- will have to live away from home (boyfriend lives close by this hospital) TL;DR: I'm having conflicting thoughts about where I should choose to have an externship this summer

    Penn Nurse Externship 2017

    I stayed in scrubs! I brought interview clothing but the unit was so crazy and I didn't want to make the nurse manager wait more ya know? They told me I would hear back within two weeks. The shadowing part was awesome and I loved it, the interview was a little short but that was probably also due to the nuttiness of the unit haha

    I haven't set an exact date, but I have to do it on a Weds since it's my only day off! And I asked in my email if there was anything I needed to bring or wear so I'll let you know when I get a response.
