    Hey!😀

    Another option is also coding. I do risk-adjustment coding for BCBS. A lot of insurance companies hire nurses to code charts. (Some require CPC credential and some do not). I've been working at home for over 2 years. ❤️❤️ it!

    Hey all,

    I just felt the need to share my experiences as an RN in the world today. I have been an LPN since Oct 2012 and got my RN Sept 2013. I have already worked in a bunch of different areas of nursing. I was lucky enough to be able to land various jobs before finding what I want to do with the rest of my life basically. I am currently 32 years old. I started working when I was 16.

    History of me:
    PRE-NURSING Jobs:
    - Pharmacy technician for 10+ years in both retail and hospital setting
    - Secretary for a Hospice
    - Office assistant for a non-profit
    - Local Coffeehouse Manager/Barista
    - Cashier

    NURSING jobs:
    - Long-term Care facility with lots of vent/trach patients (LPN)
    - Med-surg-tele nurse
    - Cerner Analyst contract for a local hospital system (went around and helped nurses transition from paper charting to EMR - loved that)
    - Home Health (short-time)
    - Managing a Doctor's office
    - Research/HEDIS nurse for an Insurance Company (Current job - started as a contract and got hired on full-time last Nov).

    I currently work in informatics and now I cannot imagine myself doing anything else. I am very computer-based. I love computers when it comes to healthcare. I do a lot of chart reviews, audits, coding, and data extraction. As much as I loved working with patients and working clinically I realized I love this more. I work at home, that gives me opportunities like traveling often that I would not be able to do with other nursing jobs. As long as I have a WiFi connection, I can work. I live in NJ and have traveled to Colorado and Arizona to see some friends (I worked during the day on Eastern time - typically 5a-1p) and then hang out with friends for lunch/dinner.

    It has been a long time since I could say with 100% sincerity that I love my job! It has also been a long time to where I feel I achieved a happy balance between my professional and personal life. Thank you for reading and have a great day!!

    Every shift has its pros and cons. I am not a nurse yet, (graduate in APRIL!!!) but I have worked night shift/day shift as a pharm tech and personally prefer night shifts.

    I do not have any kids, I am a night person and I get some of the best sleep when I sleep during they day.

    When I worked day shift, I did not get the best sleep. I woke up a few times a night and never felt like I had enough.

    The best way to find out what you like is to try them out for yourself. HOWEVER the thing with night shift is you have to do it for a few weeks/months before you can make a judgment. You need that time to get your body acclimated to the shift.

    Most people have their own personal bias against whichever shift. Some people say NIGHTS ARE HORRIBLE, and some people say I HATE THE DAY SHIFT PEOPLE. I like everyone and people have stress on whichever shift. No one is more important than the other.

    Perfect! Thank you! We also use ATI so when HESI was mentioned I thought I was missing something
    Hey FutureRockstarRN,

    This is just a really tiny little bit of advice. I scored high enough on a Kaplan Exam (similar to HESI, just different company) that said I had a 97% chance of passing NCLEX-RN. So I took the NCLEX and failed the first time. The piece of advice is still study really really hard for the exam. Do not go by a computer prediction of how well you will do.

    I have since taken it and passed in September

    GOOD LUCK!!! when you take your NCLEX

    Short answer -- no, you don't.
    Nope, you do not.

    All you have to be is culturally competent and accept all people from all walks of life. You do not have to agree with what they practice, but you should respect it.
