I got into the peds track. I am very excited. So, if we don't pass the NCLEX the first time, are we out of the program? I feel the pressure now to pass!! ahh!

congrats to you guys who got in. If you don't pass your boards after 3 tries then they will make you a nurse extern or a care partner until you pass. You won't get kicked out the program for failing. I strongly suggest that you take your boards before you start the program. You will be so busy during the program that you won't have time to study for your boards.

I got accepted into the pediatric track too! Such a blessing from God. I'm so glad to hear that about our boards, I was nervous that the pressure would be on... glad to know its not pass or have no job. I'm sure we will all do fine. I wonder when we will find out if its peds acute care or critical care, during my interview I talked a lot about peds critical care and that I would love that... but I'm thankful to be in pediatrics as a new grad nurse at vandy at all.

I guess I will be seeing you at Vandy, Miamigrad. We are both from Florida. I wonder if anyone else that got in is from FL. What school are you at?

Oh, did Tracy say that? Is that in writing somewhere? I was so worried. hehe

I would refrain from using anyone's real names on this site. But to answer your question this is what we were told during orientation.

You do have alot to think about but I have to tell yoo I made the move from PA for Vandy and I feel its the best decision I ever made. Don't look at the $ b/c its the expereince that really counts and I have learned soooo much here.

Thank you for the encouragement. The moving is going to be so expensive (from Florida), but so worth it.
