    Scottsdale Osborn is a great company to work for. Wages and benefits are satisfactory. It is a level one trauma center and also a magnet facility if that's important to you.

  10. HH vs. hospital
    Ha! My current job is on an Ortho/neuro/trauma unit and I feel the exact same way you do. I seriously feel like all I do for my 12 hr shift is disperse narcotics and get yelled at by patients when...

    I'm going to begin a HH job next Tuesday, and leaving my current job due to burn out and decreased family time. Hopefully it works out for the both of us. Good luck!

  15. Opinions please
    When has there ever been paperwork in order to resign? Sounds like she's up to no good. Maybe it looks bad in the company when there are too many resignations or something.

  17. Transitioning from Acute Care to HH
    The clinical manager made sure to tell me that some charting would need to be done at home, mainly the OASIS. But I'm okay with that especially since I'll be at home with my kids while doing it. As...

  23. How many different nursing positions have you had?
    Corrections is my next stop. But in the county jail, not the prison. I'll be in their outpatient clinic. I'm excited about it. Bedside nursing is not for me!
