This probably won't help you as I am in Michigan but just to get an idea of ranges around the country I started off at 26.50 with a small shift differential. This was at a small hospital, that seems to be around the basic starting wage here. There are other hospitals not too far from me that start around 29-30 plus shift diff.
Ok guys, I just want to essentially take a survey of what people are making in Home Health. Basically to show the regional disparities and to make sure everyone is getting a fair and equal paycheck at the end of the day. I don't need specifics such as what company you work for etc... Just the barebones 1. State (city would be nice) 2. Salary 3. Benefits 4. Perks if any So to start off: 1. S. Florida 2. $25/visit and $30/weekend visit 3. None 4. None
I agree with 84RN, the car sitting in the driveway in and of itself would not be a HIPAA violation. If that was the case wouldn't that be true of an ambulance parked there on a call to that home? As long as the person isn't telling the neighbors protected information there shouldn't be a problem.
I have just had one interview with one company but I was told that I will have (if hired) 6-8 weeks of orientation. I can not say for sure that it will play out that way but this seems like a very respectable and well organized company and I believe that unless some kind of special circumstance happens I will have that long to orient. I think it will be with the same preceptor the entire time also. Not sure if that helps but I will let you know for sure if I get hired and go through the orientation period.
I just want to know if the math section makes you have to convert? As in changing from liters to mL etc....
Hi guys! I took the NCLEX back in June and failed w 265 questions. I was near the passing line in every subject but one. Since then- I took a break and really started studying since aug. I did Kaplan before and I am doing it again along w hurst (which I loved) PDA, and alternate format questions. I have severe test anxiety and I am so scared to take it again. I am scheduled to take in kid oct. Any suggestions ?!? I want this SOO bad, I am just so terrified on failing again I felt last time that priority and teaching questions were the main focus.
I get kind of irritated when people say NCLEX was easier years ago. No, it wasn't. It was just as hard for us then as it is for new grads now. Perhaps the difference is back then students were prepared.
Well I got the good pop up after 265 questions! I know everyone says it means I passed but I am having a hard time believing it! Please tell me I passed!
I am in nursing school and looking for jobs after graduation. Does anyone have information on travel nursing or know of any programs for US citizens to work as a bsn abroad? I was also looking at the military I don't know if navy or Air Force would be better. Would you be likely to travel more with one over the other?
I took the NCLEX-RN exam today (September 24 2013) at 8:00 AM and finished with 75 questions. An hour after the exam I tried the PVT and I got this pop-up message " Our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Please contact your member board for further assistance. Another registration cannot be made at this time". Is this a good sign? I dont want to get my hopes up.
I just woke up and it hit me like a ton of bricks that I had failed... I looked around and realized I had nowhere to go and no job to look forward to starting next week and balled my eyes out. I have not reached the acceptance stage yet... Hoping I can gather the strength to start studying again. I just hate beng stuck at home, I was looking forward to orientation and finally having what I had worked for... Excuse the sobbing, i'm ridiculously emotional today. All i have to do are the dishes today dde2d
Anyone get to the cc page and end up passing? I know, I know.... I need to accept my fate & move on. But i'm looking for a shred of hope. Hard to fail when I had a job I was supposed to start next week dde25 265 w's, 45 SATA.
Each class you have to achieve an 84% in order to move on. Clinicals are pass/fail. You can repeat once and then your out the next time. Drug calculation quiz before terms 3,4,5 that you have to pass with 100% or you can't pass meds in clinicals. You can still attend clinical that week but if its your turn to pass meds then you get a zero that day. You can retake the quiz though so you have the chance to pass meds the following week.
So I just finished my CNA course and clinicals and got a job working 2pm-10pm shift at the facility where I did clinicals. I start my orientation tomorrow and its only 4 days. Is that normal? And I don't believe I will be getting paid during this time either. How long was your orientation and did you get paid during it or not? Also, any tips for getting organized and staying on schedule?
I was just recently accepted into the nursing program for the fall for baker college of Owosso and I was curious if anyone knew if it was possible to maintain a job while in the program. I would only be working like 10-15 hours a week but I dont want to do anything that will hurt me into the program. I was wondering if anyone else was planning on working or knew anyone from the program that was able to maintain a job at baker college of owosso's ADN nursing program. Anything would help! Thank you
