I didn't even start nursing school till I was 45. Went to ICU age 55.
LTC is turning into acute care. Unfortunately, the patient: nurse ratios do not reflect that change. I don't blame any nurse who wants to avoid that.
In my experience, it seems that men are offered management jobs sooner in their professional career than women.
For ANY OTHER post, I'd make a crack about parabens. But this child's situation is too sad to make such a comment.
And please DO NOT EVER apply to where I work or may have family or , actually ANYWHERE in nursing. I think you would be better off filing papers somewhere.
Sounds good. If you don't have NIH stroke scale certification (free online) get that too. It will most likely be required.
Didnt see it. Oh well, now theres two
The better question is: Why am I still subscribed to this thread???
So awesome to hear! Glad to hear you're finding your niche. I'm transitioning to ER this fall. Like you, I love travel nursing but can't continue in tele anymore.
There are a number of nurses who do commute from out of state, but I've never heard of one from so far away. You are talking about more than 6 hours each way including ground transport. Why not consider Boston instead? Roughly the same pay as San Francisco and the commute options a lot more palatable.
I work with Steve Kreutzer at ADEX travel nursing.. He is a good guy to work with. ADEX pays better than a lot of other companies. STAY AWAY from AMN. Aureus has mixed reviews. Shop around, but remember a lot of recruiters will lie to you. Thats why I stay with Steve.
@PacoUSA, BSN, RN thanks for your response unfortunately NYC is too far from me but thanks anyways.
Thank you for posting this. No one knows what goes on in the mind of another, or what kind of pain someone is facing. While I condemn the act, I cannot hate the person. He created something wonderful with Allnurses and that is how I choose to remember him. I hope he is at peace.
Thanks for posting this. I didn't know Brian, but obviously something went haywire in his mind to cause this.
I hope people here can continue to be supportive with their comments.
