I am holding out until Monday, though, for Pennsylvania Hospital. Even though it is Med/Surg, and I didn't really want to start there, it is at least Ortho/Neuro, and a city hospital (where they will be more like to be someone else who looks like me). Plus better fringe benefits...
Anyone who reads, please keep fingers crossed...though I am strictly guided by Karma. If Abington is the hospital I'm supposed to start in, then I won't hear from PA hosp. If I am supposed to be there, it will happen. I scheduled the NCLEX today...August 13th, 9am!!!!!
Shameless plug for great books, that have really helped me the past couple of years, and I wish they had been around before:
"How to Survive and Maybe even Love Nursing School" by Kelli Dunham, and its follow up "How to Survive and Maybe even Love your life as a Nurse" by Kelli Dunham and Staci Smith.
Both are chock full of great tips, advice, and some humor. A definite must read, whether you are just beginning school, or almost finished.
I figured since I started this group, I would put something helpful in here.
Well, off to enjoy the evening...
