This made me mad when I saw it.

  1. full time employee for specialty office
    (the ad describes expanded tech type/office job, i abbreviated to disguise it but it deals with rooming patients, explaining treatment/education, assisting docs, lab work, cleaning equipment, returning patient calls, insurance claims, billing, etc.)

    if we interview, you will bring documentation that you completed a 4 year college and your gpa above 3.5/4.0.

    • compensation: $10.00/hour. may increase if skill increases.
    thinking of sending them a nasty gram. all you people who just graduated college with 50 thousand + debt, this is what your industry thinks you are worth. pimping you out! that is what it is.

    I, uh, speechless here.

    That is on the low side for even CNA's in my little corner of the world.

    Maybe the compensation was a typo?

    That's a riot. I made more than $10 an hour in 1997 as a high school graduate working at a Kinko's like business

    I think if I ever needed a job that badly, I'd go live in the woods.

    That sounds like an awful lot of work and responsibility for a poopy 10 bucks.

    I hope no one is desperate enough to take that job.
    They will just be used and abused.

    Disturbing.

    Wow. There is no way I would work for $10 and hour. I'm having a hard enough time working for what I do now.

    The imperious tone in the red text is hilarious. They should've just said, "you will kiss our ring (or our royal patootie) and in return we will pay you ****.

    YES - this is a supremo cheapo ad, but did I miss something here??? is NOT an ad for a NURSE. Sounds like an employer who hasn't done any realistic recruitment in a looooong time. This job is for ??? Evenbillers and coders expect more. The bit about pt education is troubling though...

    Sounds to me like they are just trying to hire off the street to keep things on the cheap.
    I ran into this mentality in a chiropractor's office.
    It was scary.

    Forgot to add that you must have excellent communication skills in English both written and oral, but also be bilingual.

    Yes Hygiene, and "street" these days means with a 4.0 from Harvard.

    Sounds like the low end of what medical assistants are paid who are taking over in clinics and doctors offices as they are cheaper than LPN's and RN's. Though most MA programs are more of an associates degree program not bachelors aren't they?
    The majority of jobs in today's economy are ridiculously low paid, nursing is one of the few jobs that pays at least a "living" wage and that can't be outsourced to China, India or the Phillipines! Sad commentary on our economy and living standards in America today!

    You have got to be kidding.

    No need to send them a nastygram...they can just wonder why no qualified people apply. The only applicants will be those that nobody really wants to be "educating" any patients.

    Also, this makes me wonder why I think getting an MSN will be helpful, useful, or valuable in any way.
