    Hi! I was hoping to get some salaries for LPN new grads. What is your starting pay and what hospital do you work for? I have been surveying the hospital systems in my area and I have always been seeing several openings (carolinas medical center, novant, caromont health). Im just just wondering what you are getting.

    Hello!

    I am a cna and just got an offer for my first hospital job. It is in the post icu and id like to know what type of patients come come through this area and about how long they stay. Will I be able to perform any special duties or is it general cna stuff? Thanks.

    i didnt take the position but i was confused as to how i could get that position as a unit sec in regular icu but not in nicu... if its all supposed to be the same! but like you said i guess its just different policies... but how can i ever be trained as a sec/tech at this hospital if you have to be a sec/tech to begin with!

    how can you be cross trained without working there first? so r u saying id have to work in another area first and let them train me before the nicu would view me as a sec/tech?

    when do you declare a specialty- can you do it as an rn with a 2 year or do you have to have a bachelors

    i called my local nicu just to see the requirements for hiring in the nicu (caromont healthcare in gastonia nc) if they use any cnas or if they only use rns. she told me you have to be a sec/tech and that they only use cnas in in the birthplace (healthy born babies). i have been a cna since 2002...and i have applied for positions in the past for unit secretary and got it. but she was acting like a sec/tech is something specialized. can someone tell me what is the difference if any.

    all she is saying is that that specialty is her passion...i thought that was obvious

    what U would probably feel guilty about is not having a reliable trade when u reach the age to draw ssi because by that time there may be none...and then your kids will have the burden of trying to take care of you in your older age. theyll be alright families go thru more difficut things in this day and time! and this will also set a good example for them- NO PAIN NO GAIN
