  4. Nursing Is A Business: Get Used To It!
    I don't believe "Get used to it" is a mentality workers should have. This is the mentality that whoever is making these unstaff staffing ratio decisions wants you to have. Give up and suck it up is...

  6. Is this ok to do when applying for jobs?
    Props to you for liking SNF/LTC. Personally, I haven't work in one that had decent staffing and I always felt like a med pusher and the environments were awful. You can go directly to the...

  13. At last, the media is starting to see.....
    2020, eh? Well, that's great...that should give me a few years to work before I retire. All sarcasm aside, great feedback. I can only hope those projections won't come true. Meh.

  14. At last, the media is starting to see.....
    The article says the "future looks bright". The hospital job market has been bad since 2009 for the less experienced. When is the "future"? :/

  15. That was awful.
    Why are nursing homes so awful? The nurse-patient ratio is just too much for me to handle. I think I'd rather work as a Wal-Mart greeter. :(

  16. Is this common with teaching hospitals?
    I respectfully disagree that the OP has "misconceptions" about teaching hospitals. IMHO, the OP has a valid complaint. If I may, he/she was made to feel like an object and not a person. It's...

  17. Is this common with teaching hospitals?
    I'm sorry this happened to you. I agree, the behavior is rude. I chose a teaching hospital for my first baby, because it is considered "the best". That being said, after a first year resident...

  18. Be careful what you divulge
    Even if you change your name, if the user looks at your history, you old name is viewable in responses. There is nowhere to hide. :cool:

    So...I had a recent need to utilize the county health clinic and the "nurse" called me back. She didn't introduce herself and wasn't wearing a badge. She asked me questions regarding history, gave...

  21. Moving from Compact to Non Compact State..HELP!
    Compact doesn't make that much difference. I never found it that useful since every time I moved even if the new state was "compact", I still had to apply for a new license. The compact mostly...

    Just watched it...1.6 billion in profit/year. This is disgusting. I wouldn't be so appalled if the worker conditions weren't so awful. The reference to skilled nursing makes skilled seem better. ...

  24. You think the "Nursing Glut" is bad now?
    As far as nursing homes, I attribute the horrible staffing to the "for profit" nature of the company, not government reimbursements. With that being said, the hiring of MAs in lieu RNs is...

    How did you get a job after you gave up? Did someone contact you that you had previously applied to? OP: For what it's worth, you're not alone. When will this economy turn around?
