Everyone knows of the economy and the shortage of jobs out there. I have my license, however I am unable to find a career. I have had small jobs here and there, but nothing that is full-time. I have always known I was going to take classes to bridge. Ever since that first day of PN school, I told people I am not stopping. So Orientation to the Transition to RN program
As a new user to Nurse.com, can you tell me how long a free CE course is posted before it is moved over to the paid subscription side?
I graduated with honors from a leading university (CWRU) nursing program. I have certification in my specialty (oncology) and more than ten years of inpatient and infusion clinic experience. I have been seeking a job for over a year and have not been able to find even a volunteer position. When I ask people at my church about networking assistance to find a job they avoid me. I have been told that if I had the background I claim and can't find a job, I must be a criminal or a drug addict. This
Good morning I will not take long I was looking for a hot topic to write about. I will be 60 Y/O in June and have decide to return to nursing school for the RN to BSN program.

I am so proud to have spent 37 years in nursing. I always tell people considering nursing, "it's a great career and you can change directions and STILL be a nurse". Most of my time is spent writing now, health newsletter, policy and procedures , and patient safety issues.

I am currently a junior in my BSN program. Unfortunately I am in a situation where i have to work and currently work in retail.

A good attitude and hard work still go a long way more so in this
