Yep, they are one of the worst. Glad you are choosing to voice your frustrations out.
Things we never talk about Licensing.
It is ideal to let the agency reimburse you for fees. Licensing can be very expensive especially for those not in compact states. If you get licenses on your own you may find some agencies reimburse you for fees if you have never worked in that state.
For those reading this that want to travel to CA, get that license LAST. Some states want all verifications of every license you own. If you have a CA license that means you pay $100 bucks each time that verification is needed and it takes 6-8 weeks for them to send it to that state.
EX. Your license by exam in FL and endorsed in California. Now you want to apply for a NY license. Well NY requires ALL state verifications. You pay nursys 30 bucks. You send a snail mail request to CA for $100 and then you watch paint dry.
EX. Your license by exam in FL and endorsed in CA. Now you want to apply for WA license. Well they only want where you were licensed by exam which is FL...No CA verification required.
Apply for where you want to go at the same time if possible. Yes, it takes money DUH!
EX If you hold a FL license and apply for endorsement to CA, MN, NC, HI, AK, PA all for the first time...Send the paperwork off around the same time. PA will give you a temp license in 2-3 business days. Temp license do not count as something that needs to be verified. If you got PA temp license Monday and apply for Illinois Friday, you can only send verification for FL. You can still apply for other states and only have to get FL verified if none of the others have issued you a perm license.
Check out some other tips.
Lol, if only it were that easy. Virginia is a right to work state, so no unions. I take it you're not from here? Hospitals everywhere pay as little as they can get away with, and here it's pretty darn low due to the reasons I mentioned. Nurses reluctantly tolerate it because they have to if they want to work for a hospital. Moving to another area is not an option for many.
Not sure how to edit the post so I can add my clarifications, but reposting this.
Sorry I should clarify a few things
1. Jon is known to be the party go-er in our unit. All my unit does, is talk about partying and going for 4/20.
2. To explain the text message. It was during our lunch break. Jon's friend sent him a nursing related meme/photo. Jon showed me the meme/photo. Directly above the meme was a text message saying to his friend that Jon was "I am still high at work."
3. I have snapchat on my phone I saw him physically eating edibles on story. (EDIT) With the caption "Happy 4/20"
4. I showed the charge nurse, but she doesn't fully understand edibles. I would assume he deleted it after I confronted him.
