    On the whole, there is no nursing shortage. There is a shortage of people who want to be treated like crap

    There is the answer to the problem. Pay a RN at the bedside $100 an hour with a normal schedule of Monday through Friday and the supposed theoretical nursing shortage evaporates immediately.
    There never has been and never will be a RN shortage. There is a shortage of people who will work in hazardous conditions for low pay.

    I give my staff skin care lotions/anti wrinkle creams that they love. There is absolutely no way in God's Green Earth I would pony up $500 for staff gifts. That is insanity and unheard of in any medical practice where I have ever been employed. Now if I was given a $50,000 bonus at year end I might consider giving a few sheckles to my staff but beyond that forget it.

    Hell no don't work for free! There are so many jobs out there if you will look outside of your metropolitan area. Go look at a FQHCC. They are dying for new graduates who will work there. You may have to move for your first job. It's not the end of the world to relocate for a year or two. You worked too hard for your degree. Don't let anybody take advantage of you.

    Her comments are indefensible. They are 100% racist. I hope she loses her license. I would be scared to death to have this RN take care of my child .

    I found this interesting

    Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are especially likely to work past 65, according to a national workforce survey conducted in 2013 by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) and the National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers. Eight percent of registered nurses (RNs)—but 17 percent of APRNs—are 65 or older, it found. About one in four clinical nurse specialists (25 percent) and certified nurse-midwives (23 percent) are 65 or older, and about one in 10 nurse practitioners and nurse anesthetists are 65 or older.

    I assume that annual physicals and MMSE would be a good starting point. One's primary care provider along with one's trusted peers can make recommendations as to your ability to practice safely.
    I work along with 80 year old dermatologists and primary care physicians who are still practicing and doing it well. These guys works because they love the job. They are still teaching at the university and precepting students and training residents. Age is just a number.

    FWIW, my personal dermatologist is 83 and my primary care physician is 81. I actually prefer to be seen by older practitioners as their 40 to 50 years of experience are priceless.

    I never plan on retiring as long as I have a sound mind and body. I enjoy working. I couldn't imagine not working. Age 48 now. At a minimum I have another 25 years of working ahead of me until I croak. Most of my relatives drop dead in their late 70s.

    I have two jobs and work in Cali. I work a regular 8 to 5 job and then on the weekends if I want I pick up a shift or two at the urgent care. If I'm in the mood to work a ton I pick up a night shift at the urgent care during the week. It just depends on how much money I want to make that week.

    Quote from Elvish
    The huge difference between Obama and Trump being that Obama's policies did not pose a direct threat to your physical safety and well-being.
    Thats 100% ********. Obamacare caused my original insurance policy to be cancelled. When I finally got a new one it was 275% more expensive than the one I wanted. That for sure affected my well being and physical safety.

    Please defend why it is ok for a Trump voter to be pummeled and sent to the hospital. I'd love an explanation and please provide any video proof of a conservative beating a Clinton voter. I'm anxiously awaiting.

    The left is full of hate, vitriol and a complete lack of common sense. This video and the whiny sniveling protesting jobless millenials prove it.

    Another reason many white conservative males like me were hesitant to state that I supported Donald Trump. I don't need to be battered by a group of thugs.,d.cGc

    Even though I and many like me despised Obama I dare you to find a video showing white men beating black men for voting for Obama. Not surprisingly CNN, the Clinton News Network has not shown the video.

    Two Catholic nuns found murdered in Mississippi home | Fox News

    Two nuns who worked as nurses and helped the poor in rural Mississippi were found murdered in their home Thursday, and there were signs of a break-in and their vehicle was missing, according to officials.
    The nuns were identified as Sister Margaret Held and Sister Paula Merrill, Holmes County Coroner Dexter Howard said.
    It was too early to say how the nuns died, but it doesn't appear that they were shot, according to Durant Assistant Police Chief James Lee. Their bodies were taken to a state crime lab for autopsies.
    The two women, both nurse practitioners, were found Thursday morning when they didn't report to work at a nearby hospital.

    I left because of personality differences and because I was offered more money with a different position. I wouldn't recommend my old doc for scrubbing butts. There is another group in Orange County and Los Angeles that was hiring NPs while back. Its an outfit run by a PA. Nice guy. When I talked to them years ago the split was 50/50 of net revenues. You had to drive your own car from place to place and pay for mileage. There were no benefits but I'm sure with the money you make you can buy your own benefits.
