    Can I cancel an Extension Contract

    Hi, I am currently a travel nurse, and on a whim decisions applied for a permanent float pool position at the hospital I'm currently working in. Not hearing anything back from my application, I asked to extend my position as a traveler. The next day, I get a call with an interview for the float pool position. I already sent out an extension offer and it is approved, but would love to work in float pool as permanent staff! How do I get out of my extension??

    Global/Public Health RN

    Hi! I am currently a RN, BSN that has a passion for traveling the world. As I advance in my nursing career, I'm finding global and public health issues catching my attention. Currently, I am working in the hospital setting and am feeling like I want to do something "more". I know I want to continue my education and get my masters degree, but I am not sure which direction to take. I am wondering what it is like to be a global health nurse and/or a public health nurse? How much education did you have to complete? Are there prospective jobs? How is it different than bedside nursing? Thank you for your responses 🙂

    Nurse Residency Program

    Can anyone tell more information about nurse residency programs? After I graduate nursing school, I am looking for options that will help me land a hospital job. Are these programs competitive? When should I apply? Does anyone have similar experiences? Thank you!

    New Grad Nurse

    I currently attend nursing school in Wisconsin and am of junior status. The other day I had a mini panic attack realizing that graduation and the NCLEX exam are both approaching VERY rapidly. I have a general idea of what nursing fields I want to work in, but I fear that I won't be accepted in those positions because I will be a new graduate nurse with no experience. I also want to move from Wisconsin to California after I graduate which makes me anxious that moving to a new place with no healthcare connections plus having no experience being a new graduate will impede my chance of actually obtaining a nursing job in the field I am most interested in, let alone, I fear I won't have that many job opportunities because I am moving away from all my connections. Is there anything I can do to optimize my chance of getting a nursing job while I have moved to a new state in addition to being a new graduate nurse with little experience? Thanks for reading this! - A nervous nursing student :)
  7. I currently have about a year and half left of nursing school (how exciting!) and I attend an accredited nursing school in Wisconsin. After I graduate, I want to move to California to be closer to family. I plan on filling out the application of the Licensure by Examination before I take the NCLEX, but I heard the process takes along time. How likely is it that I will get a RN job right away when I move to California because I went to a university in a different state? What is the process like transfer to a different state? Does anyone have any similar experiences? Thank for your time! -Katie :)
