  5. Is this type of schedule common?
    I sometimes do 7 on 7 off, 12 hour shifts. I cannot imagine 2 weeks on/off unless it's at some remote outpost with a lot of downtime.

  11. Tucson Nursing Schools-HELP!/Experience with PMI?
    I would try to avoid a school like PMI if you can. It's expensive, and the reputation isn't that great. These are two bad things in a bad job market. I dropped out of college 3 times many,...

  13. Is Banner Health hiring ADN new grads?
    If you get an ADN you are probably going to have to go rural to get a job. Then you can earn your RN-BSN and get experience, and move back to an urban area if you like.

  14. Anyone NOT work during NP program?
    My DNP adviser recommends quitting one's job when beginning the clinical portion during the last half of the program. He says it's almost impossible to work then. But most do work during the first...

  16. ADN vs. BSN - patient mortality rates
    Individual nurses will vary regardless of educational level. Overall, more education is better. I started as an ADN-RN and finished the BSN later. I support BSN for entry to practice.

  19. Do nurses usually work 3 12-hour shifts a week for full pay?
    Right out of my ADN program I earned $25 per hour and worked 40-44 hours per week. After earning my BSN and with two years of experience, I went to a hospital where we work seven 12 hour shifts per...

  20. The raw truth about what NPs really do
    I got a night-shift slacker job on an easy hospital unit while I do my DNP program. Nursing can be very sucky at times, but honestly I find my hospital job to be much easier than my previous...
