    Worth It? CA to OR

    Hi all, I am a new grad from the Bay Area in California. This is not news to anyone, but getting a job there as a new grad is pretty competitive, much as it is throughout the country in general. I am considering relocating to Oregon, but I'd like some input on a couple matters. 1) In the context of having some hefty school debt, how has the overall pay treated you? Considering wages to cost of living balance. 2) What's your experience with the nursing culture, patient ratios, overtime, etc? 3) How's Oregon life? Culture, activities, weather. As of now, I'm most strongly considering the southern half of the state, mostly due to the weather. I look forward to hearing back from anyone with opinions! Thank you!
  2. Hello, I am looking for any input on Sky Lakes Medical Center in Klamath Falls, OR. Experience & culture at the institution or in Klamath generally. Really anything. Thank you!

    Worth It? CA to CO

    Hi all, I am a new grad from the Bay Area in California. This is not news to anyone, but getting a job there as a new grad is intensely competitive, much as it is throughout the country in general. I am considering relocating to Colorado, but I'd like some input on a couple matters. 1) For anyone who has navigated this, on average, how long has CA to CO license endorsement taken? 2) For anyone with hefty school debt, how has the pay treated you? 3) What's your experience with the general nursing culture? I look forward to hearing back from anyone with opinions
  4. This is an old post, so hopeful that one of you may see & reply to this! I plan on applying for Davis's next new grad cycle coming up in November. I was curious at what point references/letters of rec are required. Is it a part of the initial application submission? hard to tell from their website. Thanks!

    Struggling: professional orgs

    Hello everyone! I've recently passed NCLEX and will be graduating from nursing school in December (entry MSN). An exciting time! In the process of getting my resume ready as well as generally preparing myself for being a real nurse sometime soon, I am trying to prudently select professional organizations to join. Seems the ANA membership is a contentious topic on here. I understand where most concerns seem to be coming from (little action, misrepresentation), but I also like the idea of belonging to a recognized national organization, especially as a newbie. I'm licensed in CA and really considering ANA and/or California Nurses Assoc/NNOC. What are your thoughts? Both? CNA/NNOC? Other suggestions?* *not sure which setting ill be starting out in

    @aks92 I never ever use mine might as well have deactivated it lol but I just created a closed group. You shouldddd be able to find it if you search "USF Non-Nurse MSN Cohort 23". Honestly not sure if I made it right, but hopefully it works!

    And @aks92 and @md21887, I can't remember if either of you had already mentioned this before, but how are you tackling the housing situation? Would it be beneficial for us to make a Facebook group or something similar? assuming you guys have accounts :)

    To answer your question @BBPunjabi816, I just checked mine and it only says submitted now (not "to be reviewed after deadline" anymore)

    I'm also waitlisted! Feeling the nerves even more so now good luck to us all!

    USF MSN-CNL non-nurse spring 2017

    I was thinking...I would assume they called all 30-35 Friday to let them know asap and once/if they start to decline spots is when they'd start calling down an already set waitlist, which may likely be what we're on now and why we haven't heard anything at all. Once that process begins, the top applicants from the waitlist are admitted/offered spots and the bottom spots would begin to be declined if top waitlisters accepted and followed through with deposits/etc. Likely why there are random and seeming waves of acceptances, too, as waitlisters could receive notice at any time someone declines or after several admitted applicants fail to submit deposits/etc. by whatever deadline. Only a theory though!!

    @aftonheistand and the second round of acceptances was about two weeks after the first?

    USF MSN-CNL non-nurse spring 2017

    @aftonheistand I totally agree and the fact we could be waiting weeks more is even worse! Do you recall when people were notified of being put on he waitlist?

    @aftonheistand I'm also still waiting to hear anything. Agonizing!
