Sep 4, '02Well,
In response to your message. Why should LPN's or LVN's become RN's? In some areas they make the same as RN's?? Why bother?
I have a goal to complete a 4 yr degree and become an educated person for the sake of knowlegde as well. It only takes 1 full semester and 1 summer session to become an RN w/a BSN. To progress into mgmt faster, to have the option work in jobs that require a BSN degree only, have the option to further myself w/a masters, to obtain a postition w/a refinery as an "exaggerated school nurse" and make over $70,000 per year w/excellent benefits and a 9-5 job when I want to spend more time w/my family, etc. If I haven't listed enough reasons why it would be worthwhile to some of us, let me know or anyone else who has done it.
I don't bust my butt more--I just added more education to myself to open my options. IF you look for it.... school loans are pd for by many agencies and permanent jobs. There are $25,000 sign on bonuses and loan repayment programs as well. Also everyone should investigate into the new "program" that Bush is instituting for anyone wanting to go into Nursing. I don't call it busting my butt and incurring unwanted loans. I call it expanding my options for the long haul in Nursing.
Sep 5, '02We just got a 15.8% raise, biggest ever for our hospital. Now I make $36.54 per hour. It doesn't matter where you work in our hospital, whether ICU
or E.R. or the med-surg floors or surgery - no
differentiation regarding pay.
