  1. 9 Are you ready for Halloween? Do you have a costume to wear?

    If you had to choose a costume what would it be and why?

    I'm thinking the costume wouldn't be scrubs and a stethoscope, then.

    I am not a nurse (yet), but from what I've heard from other nurses, this is a very accurate depiction of the nursing career. You'd be lucky to get this kind of a schedule after years and years of experience.

    Teehee funny. I think MD office nurses get that kind of schedule BUT most MD offices around here are opting for UAPs in the place of licensed office nurses.

    I'm currently underemployed and the only hours I can get are on weekends working 7p-7a ( though I would prefer 2nd shift and not 9-5 and I don't particularly care if I get holidays off ).

    Even though he is a nurse who has come in scrubs, he has come as something that doesn't exist (a nurse who works 9-5 c weekends and holidays off).

    I'm a nurse who works 8-4 with weekends and holidays off! Left the PICU for public health/school nursing for the county and it was the best decision I ever made. Oh, and to support your statement, I wear business casual.

    How did you get into wound care? Did you need specific certification?

    Work 5 days a week?
    Oh, heck no!
    I like having days off during the week and try to avoid working more than 2 days in a row if I can help it!
    I do not want to get up and go to work 5 days in a row...

    No certification needed up front. I will be doing hyperbaric oxygen wound therapy and they provide training. I will have one year to become certified and will attend a week long intensive training program in Florida, all expenses paid by the company.
    Since I am a LPN my title will be Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Technician, then once certified, I will advance into a Safety Director position.

    Here is a website about the company for you to browse. They have openings in many states.
