In my district I don't know if its really worth it, the pay per year is not a whole lot for national boards, but they too will pay for you to go through it.
Drea, the cset is only in CA actually the rest of the country pretty much uses the praxis, I passed the praxis my first time, so maybe I am a good test taker, perhaps I should consider the national boards.
Thanks Christine for explaining :)

I thought it was national too, since I went to school in CA, but then when I moved I had to take the praxis. Drea are you still planning on nursing school or are you going to try and find a teaching job still? I keep hearing about all the budget cuts, it freaks me out to possibly move back there in a few years.

Yes I'm still planning on nursing school, thanks for reminding me lol....need to register for a class this summer.....have to take anatomy, microbiology, and physiology(sp?).....Then will take those three in the fall. Then sign up for the community colleges nursing school.

I still am going to try to get a nursing job, will start sending my resume when jobs open up on edjoin.org.....but it will be hard since almost everyone around me is getting pink slips.....don't work in Orange County.

Actually, the tests were much better than the portfolio entries to me. There are many questions that you have to answer, but so many within one "paper" (or entry) SOUND THE SAME!!!! It's very frustrating to figure out exactly what they're looking for! Also, there are maximum page amounts for each section within the entry, but I'm having a hard time reaching those! I write very much "to-the-point", and feel like I covered everything they're asking, but then wonder what I'm leaving out if the page length is a little shorter. Like I said earlier, you get no feedbach (except a score and you can see the corresponding rubric), but it's still hard to determine where you went wrong (if that makes any sense!). As teachers, you tend to approach things with the idea of "when I accomplish so and so". With NB, it's "if I accomplish". Hard to change your thinking!

I so want to concentrate on all things baby right now, that this is just not a priority!!!! Oh well, it has to be mailed by tomorrow (midnight), so however it's done, that's the best I can do now!

Amy

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
