My name just showed up today as pending examination on the board's website, just waiting for my ATT now!!

I feel like I lost all the information from school since it took so long for them to process my application! I took a couple weeks off from studying and I'm having a hard time getting back in the groove. I passed the Hesi Exit with the highest score in my class but I'm so afraid of failing the NCLEX.

This is for LPN, BTW

Congrats to everyone passing!


edited to add...I just got my ATT..I take my test Aug 18 at noon. I'm so nervous!

Congrats! What a great feeling! Enjoy your trip!

So, just finished my last class for my BSN. Fingers crossed that this helps get a better nursing job!!!. I got my ADN May of 2011 and took for ever to find a home care nursing job and I'm totally dissatisfied with my job as a nurse.

I'm so happy to be on this board! I'm starting my first nursing class this fall at UNCG. Currently I work as a Nurse Tech at a local hospital and I love it. My long term plan is to become a Nurse Anesthetist.

Congrats on the BSN! Yes, in the NE it should help, plus you have a little experience under your belt. it must be very hard working in a nursing home. I don't think I'd like it either.

I'm so sad to see your siggy! Robin was an excellent writer! Last time I checked, her grandson was still little and her son was in SC. i hope everyone is doing as best as they can.

Congrats! Look at the CRNA school you want to get in. Some don't count the ER as critical care experience.

Thanks. Actually its home care nursing so in my book worse then nursing home as I work alone.

Robin's grandson is about 5 I think and they are coping....that's about all right now.

I got a job!! I was actually offered two positions. The first one is on a med surg floor where I precepted my last quarter. The one I took is an advanced care internship. The internship is 16 weeks long and allows me to work on two different floors. I do not know what floors I will be on yet, I don't start until the second week of October. It feels great to have gotten a job, especially considering I got my my first choice!!

That's awesome! I actually interviewed today for a PRN position at an MRDD facility. Sounds promising, they are going to do my background check and then call me back again! I know a girl that works there and she said they have a part time LPN that keeps calling in and try don't have a PRN nurse so maybe it would turn into PT soon! Woohoo!!

On average, about 5:1 or 6:1.

What was said before. 5:1, or 6:1, depends on the hospital, which shift, etc.

PCU is usually 2:1 or 3:1, on average.

ICU is 1:1 or 2:1. Sometimes 1:2, but that's never good!

There's a VA set to open soon, and Nemour's. Both are just south of the airport. Orlando Health has many hospitals in its network, as does Florida Health Systems.
