The easiest job for the MOST money

  1. 0
    I know every experienced nurse reading this is laughing at my title and you will probably continue laughing

    But like it says in the title I want to know where to find the easiest job (less work, less stress, and ******** that is tolerable) I live in New London, Connecticut, USA. What can I expect to make starting out with an Associates working in the following places,:

    1) UCFS, which is a community health clinic for the poor and working class
    2-Any nursing home
    3-Working for the VA or government Dept of Corrections or Uconn healt center which is another clinic not just for the poor, im assuming.
    4- A substance abuse facility of a meth clinic.
    What are the chances I will be hired at these places making 23-25 an hour to start. I would like to do paper work and administer medication. not much else for 23-25 an hour to start. Yes, keep laughing This is a serious post however.

    Have you taken a look at the job market & the economy at all in the past 3 years?

    The question is, why would any of these institutions want to hire someone with your low level of motivation?

    Better chance of winning powerball, I think.

    No nursing job is "easy" in my opinion, especially your nursing home "option." That is back-breaking work.

    I hear the VA pays well and has great benefits. Not sure about the others, though. I can't give you specifics because pay varies by state/region. I know Connecticut has a higher cost of living than other states do.

    Just look for a facility with a very low level of expectations, and you just might meet it.

    Uh-uh. The gravy train years, if they ever truly existed, are long over. I have worked inpatient Med/Surg, LTC, and hospice home nursing, and all of them were, at times, stressful, physically challenging, and just plain hard work. If you want to sit around doing little or nothing and get paid good wages to do it, do yourself a favor--either change your career choice or change your work ethic. Lazy nurses don't last long, because the idea is that if you get paid well, your employer will actually expect you to work for it.

    #3 sounds like the best option. I can not tell what job would be the easiest for the most money. I've heard that RN supervisors at a nursing home do nothing in comparison to the lpns but your license may be at risk for negative consequences.

    Any job that pays a descent wage will be stressful...or maybe I'm just high maintenance. A descent wage to me in Louisiana is 45 an hour with the flexibility to work as often as you want for overtime or as least as you want without being looked at negatively from your boss. A good wage is 70 an hour with enviable benefits attached to the position and also flexibility which doesnt require mandatory overtime but also doesn't limit your overtime.

    try to get a job at a surgery center. the ones around here are cushy as far as nursing jobs go... avoid the nursing home if you dont want to work hard. They have patient loads of about 40.
