    Hello. I would like to explain my issue. I was hired on call, and was working on call and full time whenever full-time employees could not work. Overall, I worked 6 out of 12 months full time. In the last 4 months of 2011, I was working full time because I was replacing another full time nurse who was on maternity leave.
    Since the beginning on January, no one has called me. I called the nurse who I trusted, and she told me my name was taken off the schedule and my name and phone number was whited out from employees phone number list.
    I called DON and asked what I should expect(I did not tell her info I knew), and she told me I was on call. When I asked if I can use her as a reference, she said yes.
    Later, another employee told me that they hired the sister of a full-time employee full time and that the sister of an owner was given on call position.
    I look for another job now and understand that my job at that nursing home is over. However, did any of you ever see something like this done to your fellow coworker? Is what they did not me legal? Please comment.

    ADN, will have BSN in December of this year. Also have an LPN diploma under my belt.

    I live in MN

    My job title is RN- cardiac/telemetry/progressive care

    I make...I think 34 something an hour (that includes shift differential, since I work straight nights)
    According to a rough calculation that equals out to about $35,000-$36,000 per year.

    What I like about my job: I like my co-workers, I like teaching patients, I like learning new things myself. I like doing stuff. I like messing with stuff. I like figuring out how all that stuff works and keeps my patient alive.

    What I don't like about my job: I don't particularly enjoy the high volume of drug seekers we get, and the tactics they use, I don't like waking my patients up, especially when I know they're going to be crotchety about it (and they've got a right...I guess). I don't always love working nights, I don't get to see my husband and kids as much. But I've been around on days, and I think nights are just a totally different world and scene. It's nice. Oh and I don't like the McHospital mentalitly, with scripts and "the customer is always right" idea that makes it ok for a patient to wig out at you and treat you like dung, and smack you around and then YOU get taken to task for their temper tantrum (I'm talking about completely congnisent people right now, mind you).

    7. what don't you like about your job? being 'on call' has been tough at my age, some days you could be at work 16 hours or more; the stress; nurses not always respected by the medical staff; all the new changes come from cms, jacho, etc....that are ridiculous and unnecessary, but somehow will put money in someone's pocket; dealing with nurses on other units who show no pride or interest in their work, and don't want to put anything extra into their job!

    All these numbers make me feel even more underpaid than I already do! Florida Staff BSN RN w/ almost 2 years exp making 20/hr (in a hospital). :-/ That would be one of the things I dislike about the job. With differentials, it goes up to about 25 :-/ I also dislike the politics. I love my co-workers and the occasional pt who makes me feel appreciated.

    1. LVN

    2. California

    3. "LVN I" at Kaiser Permanente; I have been working for a year and a half

    4. $23.76 plus $1.00/hour when working after 1800 and plus .55/hour for being bilingual

    5. Made 44K last year working anywhere from 20-40+ hours per week (it really varied greatly from week to week)

    6. Love the hour flexibility, fully paid benefits, we get a lot of sick hours, vacation time, AND even have "personal time off," 2 annual raises (one through our union and another through the company), double and a half time pay when working holidays (yes, that's DOUBLE AND A HALF), love that I can float from department to department, tuition reimbursement, late night/weekend shifts available which works perfect for me since I am currently in school obtaining my BSN, overtime opportunities (especially during flu season), co-workers are so helpful, and they offer a "new-grad RN program" which really coaches you and helps you transition into the RN world. Kaiser is the greatest company and I could never see myself working for anyone else, enough said.

    7. I feel somewhat limited as to what I can and can't do. Kaiser really places a restraint as far as LVN's scope of practice goes, but in ways I can appreciate this because it places us at less of a liability risk. Also, I currently work at a big medical office (with sub-specialities and an Urgent Care) so there is a lot of "back office" work such as messages and picking up the phones so at times I feel as if I am more of a call center operator than a nurse. But still, can't complain too much because I LOVE my job!:heartbeat
