plenty of threads with tips.
25 years experience. ER, ICU, CXTICU, PACU. This pay is on days with a clinical ladder diff that I accomplished. Evening diff would be 15% and nights would be 19% diff.
Hello, I live in Florida and make 40.8 an hour full time at Tampa General Hospital.
How far ahead should one start looking to license? I'm thinking of starting this September but can leave as soon as July. Should I start applying to several states now? Also, do you keep a permanent license everywhere you have been or just do the temp each time? Do you need CEUs for every state or just enough to maintain your home linens?
You might buy yourself 5 business days.The position that is my top priority I let them know I am interviewing multiple places. To have more than 5 five business is uncommon.
you won't get sick patients at those facilities.
I do. Operating Room, my Hospital pays a higher rate for the OR, plus with call... all the OT I care to pick up-- well , well over 100k
Good for you. I can see why you would pick ICU over ER.
which unit do you prefer to start out in? figure that out and do that.
Current nurses, what specialties would you like to try.
I would say my top areas. Transport nurse (peds), Diabetes Educator, Cath Lab(would prefer peds) or peds cicu. Would like to move away from adult icu.
Well I took your advise and applied for CA, WY, WA, and OR at the same time. Expensive but here is hoping.
How long did it take you to find that job? Going into month six. I had looked off and on prior to that. Seriously the process has been too long. I think I may have found the right fit. Should know next week.
How many jobs did you turn down in the process? Officially two. one was because pay sucked. the other was because they wanted me to do something other than what i interviewed for and I was not interested.
How many interviews did you have? Six.
*How many interviews did you turn down? Three. Typically I don't turn down interviews but, no need to waste my time or the employer's.
