Employer: Davita Dialysis & J&J家庭护理
Job Title: 注册ed Nurse
Why did you choose to go to 老葡京手机app?
"I chose to go to 老葡京手机app for a few reasons. 这些原因包括 支付能力, convenience,以及 nursing program in itself. I had to pay out-of-pocket for most of my schooling, so 支付能力, the SJC Foundation Scholarship,以及 经济援助办公室 handling student loans, made it to where I was able to complete my degree."
What did you do to prepare for your career?
大家都知道, 注册ed Nurses are very much needed at this point in time and well, 几乎总是这样. I was able to study for and pass the NCLEX on the first try about a month and a half after I graduated from the program. I was able to start training as a Dialysis Nurse with Davita literally the day after I took my exam. I have been with Davita for around 7 years as a Patient Care Technician so it was an easy adjustment. To expand my nursing knowledge and help a family in need, I started with J & J private duty home care a couple months after I passed my NCLEX. I now work around 50 hours total between Davita and J&J家庭护理."
What advice would you give to future graduates?
"Future graduates, it is NEVER too late to go back to school, or finish school! It is ok to take a few classes in different areas of profession and then change your mind. I started out taking engineering classes until I started with Davita and changed degree paths to nursing. Find out what you love and go for it!"
What was your fondest memory at 老葡京手机app?
"My fondest memory would be my clinical experience at the hospital in general. The staff were amazing and I learned/experienced so much."
