  1. Hawaii has low unemployment so why are RN jobs tough to get?
    Not bad advice except that I want to live in Hawaii, even if it meant giving up the 70K I now earn as an ICU nurse, and living in a tent, somewhere in the backwood of Kauai or Oahu. Perhaps, I can...

  2. Disappointed..Straub, Queens, Kieser
    One option might be to write/email/visit the nurse managers directly. I did this in Indianapolis as a new grad (granted nothing like Hawaii) and was hired into critical care when the recruiter told...

  3. New nurse still on orientation and first med error?
    Several points come to mind here: I am far from certain that you would need an order in order to initiate a warm compress. Absent, a hospital policy I would tend to believe that one is not needed. ...

  4. Will I hate psyhe nursing more, less or same?
    It's not just the "more than three shifts per week" rather it is that it takes every bit of emotional, spiritual, and motivational energy that I can muster just to face my primary job (new ICU...

  5. Will I hate psyhe nursing more, less or same?
    Thanks, for the input. Yes, I could live with a couple of dollars per hour less. The problem with picking up the per diem is that my current work expects me to work three days per week (even though...

  6. Will I hate psyhe nursing more, less or same?
    I've been an RN for three years. My first job out of school was in ICU and they gave me the boot after three months to PCU. I've worked in PCU and now overflow (where we take everything from medical...

  7. Can they make me stay at the hospital without pay?
    I don't see how anyone should say that we signed up to go into work and they stay there without pay. I can understand saying that I need to stay "close" to work in the event of natural disastors (for...

  8. Can they make me stay at the hospital without pay?
    They could fire me for not going in? Okay, I understand that it is an employment at will state, but they wouldn't fire me if I didn't go to work due to illness or for drinking too much and being too...

  9. Can they make me stay at the hospital without pay?
    I've lived in Florida now for about two years. To date I've been fortunate to escape the obligatory A/B list duty of staying at the hospital before or after a hurricane (and it's looking like Irene...

  10. Tampa- do not speak Spanish
    Again, I've now worked in two central Florida hospitals (with my current one serving at least 30% Spanish speaking primarily clients), however probably less than 5% of nurses are fluent in Spanish. ...

  11. Hawaii has low unemployment so why are RN jobs tough to get?
    Does the whole "network thing" perhaps explain some of what is being described above (and in other threads in this forum)? Personally, it's hard for me to relate to since I've both worked with my...

  12. Hawaii has low unemployment so why are RN jobs tough to get?
    At this point I cannot imagine working as a CNA just to get an RN job! Especially, when my significant other has gotten solicitations for RN travel positions in Hawaii (granted I have only 3 years...

  13. Tampa- do not speak Spanish
    I work at a hospital in the South Orlando area and approximately 30 to 50% of my patients are primarily Spanish speaking. However, less than ten percent of my co-workers speak Spanish. So while...

  14. Hawaii has low unemployment so why are RN jobs tough to get?
    Well, I'm working on my BSN now and will certainly have it before moving (as well as my CCRN hopefully as well). The whole "hiring from the inside" is allmost a foreign concept to me. If anything the...

  15. Hawaii has low unemployment so why are RN jobs tough to get?
    Know it does not specify the unemployment rate for nurses, I'm just talking about the "generic" overall unemployment rate. However, in allmost everycase RN's have an easier time (at least in every...

  16. Florida hospital
    You could come to HCA in Kissimmee! PRN Pay (meaning no benefits) is about $38.50 for nights and about $42.00 on weekends. However, your med/surgical ratio is 7 to 1 with only one tech for about 30...

    I understand the point that you are making and have been researching this subject for at least ten years. Indeed, one of the primary motivations for us quitting our home businesses and going back to...

    I live in Florida where the average unemployment rate is around 12%. When we moved from Indiana in 2009 I had exactly one year of experience as an RN and only an ASN degree. I was offered five of...
