- Jun 30, '12 by brown eyed girlAny good skilled rehabs/ltc facilities? I'm mean REALLY GOOD. I'm really over working in facilities in terrible neighborhoods. It has been my experience that when you work in terrible neighborhoods/areas, the staff/work environment tends to be the same; including upper mgmt. They treat the staff terrible,pay them even worse, offer EXPENSIVE health benefits, and fire you on the drop of a dime because more so they don't "like" you versus poor nursing skill/work.

One guy wanted to sue the state of California over it. A search in allnurses for "ca bon" gets lots of results.Is that what is happening? I've been coming across a couple of cases like above late and they have been driving me crazy because they want to let you know they are an RN back home and I couldn't really care. I just want to give report and go home.

The one gal I actually like who was a RN in Russia was telling me she's been trying to get into the classes she need to take the NCLEX-RN like Peds, L&D, and Mental Health but if that's what your missing doesn't that mean your not NCLEX-PN eligible either since thats a part of the LVN curriculum as well?
Anyways I have a few coworkers that have 20+ years of experience but right not their options are about the same as mine $ and advancement wise.
- Jun 30, '12 by nursel56From what I understand the issue is "concurrency" with their theory and clinical cases for OB and perhaps other rotations as well. All of the questions are from people from the Phillipines, so I'm not sure about Russia, but I work with 2 from Russia who said they were RNs in their home countries as well. I'm not sure why they can't be RNs here.
