Are you ready for your patients to talk to you? Are you ready for more than one patient? Are you ready to pass medications? Juggle between 4 patients at a time? Are you ready to discharge? Are you ready to triage? If you answered yes to all these questions then you are ready to be an ER nurse. Good luck. Change is good for everyone. You learn about yourself more when you change things up.
That is what I left to become a nurse! Not gonna lie though... I have some regrets! I joke with my coworkers that if I could do it all over I would just be a night shift grocery stocker talking to my cans of beans all night.
If science is what you're interested in have you considered clinical trials?
I am currently trying to figure out how I can work from home and then ultimately the Caribbean. So far case management and telephone triage seem to be the only possible portals. I need to do some HW on big pharma opportunities as well.
Doggie Day care that caters to health care worker hours. Also working on a top secret idea.
Nurses need to put the brakes on these travel companies. They need US, WE DO NOT NEED THEM. Without US, there is NO Agency. Without Agency, There is still US. I can tell you a 5 Hospitals in Dallas that offer direct contracts. They also provide shift diff for nights, eves, and weekends and a higher rate than the agency due to No middleman.
CDC continue to look like idiots every year. Those pest may not like to fly outside of their area but....when their eggs end up on a moving vehicle like in a bucket with a small amount of water on the back of a pickup truck you will have outside of miami.
Please leave you abusive relationship. I don't care if you travel or not, that needs to be done. Cut all ties with this person. No one deserves to be abused.
Thanks for the advice. How do you suggest I learn, if I only work for teaching hospitals?
just do travel work for teaching hospitals. not knowing how dilated a woman is and not knowing how to placing fetal scalp electrode etc is not good. Smaller community hospitals will expect you to do all of that.
I would stay away from Cross Country and AMN. Giving the max stipends is not something they are known for. As they simply put it "the bill rate wont allow for it"...... I have NEVER heard anything positive from AMN. Recruiters are not trained well. Many horror stories I have read and heard. Just avoid AMN. Cross Country pays you a biweekly paycheck, No bueno! I am going to need that weekly.
Expedient medstaff. MGA Healthcare. Medical Staffing Solutions. Those are who you want to start with.
Avoid HCA hospital assignments.
