    kaknurse...thanks for answering my question about what a MDS is. :kiss

    For Sue and Zohar....

    Now...on the note of whether or not I was kidding about the wage thing...I was DEAD serious! I took her statement very literally! But, thanks for clarifying it for me. :chuckle STILL...$15.00/HOUR is an insult to a professional nurse...no matter what country she works in.

    How right you are, considering where I live if you work for a government office (and you only need your high school diploma for this) you make more than a RPN (LPN).
    There is something wrong somewhere!!

    I'm confused--I was under the impression that MDS's had to be signed by RN's. When I was in long term care (about 5 years ago) I had to do my own MDS's for my unit as part of my charge position but they had to be either signed or co-signed by an RN to be valid. Has this changed or was is just where I worked.

    15$ an hour in some parts of California is like minimum wage. Because of the cost of living here. I started at 9.60 at Children's hospital-LA in 95 needless to say I left in 9 months to find better pay. That is ridiculous there were clerk III's that made more and I had to deal with people's lives everyday! It is really when some RN's were making that too!
