Why would you maintain a lower license?
I attempted to let my PN license expire while having my RN license and they sent a reminder stating that I would be fined if I didn't renew my license; I didn't want my expired PN license to affect my RN license so I paid it.
You weren't missing anything; I'm only stating MY experiences with my license and how I couldn't "just let it expire"
Thank you Flames9_RN!
I just graduated today from Grand Canyon University with my BSN 😊 Good luck to all of you going through it! You will be great!
This all happened after my transcripts were submitted. And 2 of the advisors gave me different answers. I am very frustrated and disappointed with their program. I should be graduating right now
I had a problem with my laptop crashing and then I went and bought an iMac....problem solved
I would feel much better about almost being finished if I didn't still have 3 classes to test out of Has anyone else been told they were 6 credits short and then towards the end of the program get told that they are 12 credits short?? I have also had 3 different advisors during this program. I have to say I am less than impressed....
We need to take every patient situation as a learning experience. We only have so many medications and interventions at our disposal and sometimes despite our best efforts it just isn't enough. I have always felt that my co-workers are a tremendous resource. Many times it takes someone else on the outside looking in to think of a new approach that you haven't thought to try.
Best of luck to you in the future
I would say to find a Hospice service that has a good reputation and apply. I have been with my Hospice company for almost a year and I LOVE it!!!! I was hired without any previous Hospice experience also. Good luck!!!
At my company we pick up what we can. During our RN meetings they pass around the calendar for the upcoming month with the shifts that they need covered and we pick up what we are able to do. For the most part we have regular PRN nurses that pick up quite often.
I need advice. I work part-time as an RN in a nursing home. I love my residents, but the pay is bottom of the barrel ($22 an hour, but I do get a whopping 50 cents more an hour on weekends!). I need to find another job. I am interested in working as a hospice admission nurse. Is there anyone who can give advice, what the duties are, etc. I am an older nurse and need a change. Thanks in advance for any responses.
I just recently started with Heartland PRN. I am still going through orientation but so far I like it and everyone is very supportive and helpful. I am attempting to work full time instead of just PRN now.
I am also working at a similar facility. I'm not thrilled with it either...although I have made it there for over a year now. I recently took a PRN position at a neuro-rehab hospital. For me it's the best way to try out a new place without leaving my full time job entirely. I am able to work my full time job Monday through Friday and pick up at the hospital on weekends. I hope you can find something similar.
I typed up a list of all the tasks that I had to finish in a shift. I laminated the list and then use a dry erase marker to check of each item as I complete it. It worked well for me until I got everything memorized and created a system. I hope you find something that works for you.
I think that any experience you get is better than nothing. I have been a nurse for 1 year now working on a sub-acute unit as well. I can have up to 16 patients on my wing and yes at times it can be very demanding and overwhelming. Along with the stress of being overwhelmed I have gained a tremendous amount of experience and am rewarded everyday by grateful patients and their family members. I recently received a job offer to work PRN at a hospital along with my job on the sub-acute unit at a long term care facility...so yes it is possible to get hired at a hospital with only sub-acute experience under your belt. I wish you the best of luck!! Keep moving forward
