    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.
    Case management is still talking to people too much for me.

    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.

    Where in NY? Would you be interested in Newburgh, NY? I think a friend has a contract for 2550 for ICU 36 hours. I could ask if tele is available just PM me.

    I would not even work for the same unless it was already a crisis rate paying well beyond the normal. BUT NEVER LESS. I would move on if I were you.

    I hated the airbnbs. It felt like staying at a friends place you didn't really know that well. People kept way tooo much personalized items. I was uncomfortable at 2/3 placed I used. I do apartments only going forward. I need to be totally comfortable.

    Thanks for the advice. How do you suggest I learn, if I only work for teaching hospitals?

    Let a resident teach you while still employed at least with the dilation checks. Other than that you may want to work per diem at non teaching facility if they wont teach you. You can also try to pick up the experience on a travel assignment. Although the facility may want you to do 26 weeks and also to help you hone your skills.

    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.

    Clearly you've never driven in Boston.

    I've not seen anything I consider unusual in LA or Miami. I lived in LA (went to nursing school there) and have spent a good bit of time in Miami. Of course, perhaps I fit your profile driver in those locations!
    Of course I have never driven in Boston. There is little need to ever get behind the wheel in Boston unlike LA.

    Yes, through pre paid legal. No mafia connections so I am without an offshore account. trust funds I can only dream of.
    My lawyer advise me to pay taxes on tax free money that was over the allotment for that area incase of being audited.

    I ended up not taking the contract because I could not get my requested time off. The manager at CRMC in Fresno would not talk to me after I called his cellphone twice left voice message once and I visited in person. He was in a meeting but, I heard he was on the phone with one of his clinical floor supervisor who told him to call me. I stopped by to introduce myself since he never phone interviewed me, I still received no call. I was not worth 2 minutes now, I was not going to be worth a damn if something went down on the unit. Good Riddance.

    Sounds like a Floridian new grad contract. I would not advise traveling until at least another year.

    I spoke with my tax lawyer. She does not understand why they are doing it this way. They can write off the money in a different way. She advise me to take the money. However I will end up paying taxes on the extra amount at the end of the year. I am waiting on the agency to give me the exact breakdown of the stipend. If there is a bonus in there which is what I am thinking I just want to know. I also asked if I could just enroll the amount in my personal 401k to protect it from taxes. She said that is one way of doing that. My friend came up with that idea. I am just not use to a higher than GSA stipend.
