"I wanted to quickly obtain a nursing certification,legitimately. I did some research,and the closest and most financially feasible program was the one that this college offered. I feel that I did make the right decision,I was well prepared for the line of work and I have very little student loan debt."
"The college was close to home, affordable and most all credits are transferable to local universities. I really enjoyed the medical programs and they helped me get into my current field."
"I chose Vernon College because it was an affordable institution that I had taken classes at, before. After talking with other nurses, I was told to attend Vernon College because the opportunity for clinical hours was much greater than at other institutions. Since students receive more clinical time, they are more likely to be hired by hospitals."
"The College of Southern Idaho was a convenient and financially sound choice as I was able to reside with my parents for the duration of the program I was in. This allowed me to focus exclusively on the material and skills being taught and to not become distracted with worldly necessities such as rent, etc."
"I picked College of DuPage because the place where I wanted to work had good connections to the college. I also like that the non-degree program included credit courses that could be transferred to a 4-year school if I wanted at any time."
What surprised people about the school they chose?What surprised people about the school they chose?
"I enjoyed the school but did fill ill prepared for a lot of what I ran into."
"I was greatly impressed at the quality of education I was receiving,since it is a community college. I have worked with several nurses that are surprised by my breadth of knowledge and my overall competence as a nurse."
"I was surprised by how many different clinical sites we were allowed to visit. Everything from a large hospital to small nursing homes was available. I enjoyed the variation of locations that were provided to students."
"My college has a regionally immaculate reputation regarding its nursing programs. I found nothing exceedingly distinguished regarding my college's quality of instruction and I heard many blemished opinions regarding the Registered Nursing program."
"I was surprised how relevant and up to speed my college was on medical technology. I was thankful that everything I was doing was applicable to my career."
How do people describe their job hunt?How do people describe their job hunt?
"Regarding the Practical Nursing job hunt, I found the experience entirely contrary to what my perception of finding a job usually entailed. I thought the job applicant would have to voraciously search near and far for their suitable job only to compete with legions of similarly qualified individuals like most careers. This could not have been farther from the truth; while our class was winding down, many facilities sent representatives from local hospitals and clinics to try and recruit us through convincing our class that they were the best option, opposed to the contrary I was under the impression of."
"I got my CNA and My emt and was kind of disappointed because I found out after the fact that in order to land a job as an EMT you really had to have a full time record of volunteer hours in order to set yourself apart. I have supported myself and lived on my own since 16. I have had to work full time since I was 16, so I was not able to devote 40 hours a week to get the volunteer hours. So, I did not wind up working as an EMT, BUT the certification helped me get my current job because it set me apart from the other applicants."
"I found it very easy to find a job after graduation,if I had wanted to I could have immediately gone to work at the nursing home,they offered me a position as soon as I could pass the boards. Ultimately I signed with a local hospital that guarantees me a decent salary and tuition reimbursement after signing a 5-year contract."
"While there are many opportunities to be hired as an LVN, you need to be sure you will be working for a trustworthy company. After applying at a local clinic, I knew within a few minutes of the interview that it was not the place for me. I continued to put in applications at other clinics and home health centers. After a few months, I was hired by a local home health provider."
"I asked previous professors if they knew anyone that was hiring to see if there were immediate connections. I created a resume and got letters from those same professors. I then submitted those things to the offices where I wanted to work, and after there was an open position, I got a call for an interview."
