  5. time for a change?
    Guess what? I got an interview at an Urgent care walk-in clinic this week. I thought it sounded good since it was in my town and mostly first shift and you wouldn't have to deal with people dying all...

  6. time for a change?
    I also just found out they are going to make us pay for insurance now. It sounds like its more than I can afford so I'll either have to go without any and pay the penalty at tax time or look...

  7. time for a change?
    I really doubt I could make that much in this area. I would be happy with 35-40k. Anyway, I just heard that my main job is cutting back again. It sounds like I'll keep my amount of hours for now. I...

  8. time for a change?
    Anybody? I'm not sure what to do and probably running out of time to apply if I decide to, but did apply at a local hospital that is hiring in the walk in department for the heck of it.

  11. Nurse Manager? (can't find a new job)
    Thanks for the advice, but I decided I probably wouldn't be a good fit for the position. Anyway, I had two interviews for home health the past week. At one of them I was basically told I don't...

  12. Nurse Manager? (can't find a new job)

  16. New job!!!
    If its like the majority of nursing homes, it will most likely be overwhelming and you will want to quit. Don't want to scare you though as it may be a decent place and you may be one of the few who...

  18. Career change?
    I'm thinking of switching as well. I've only had "full-time" hours maybe 2 years out of the 5 I've been a nurse. I'm now at 72 hours a pay and they consider it full-time, but it was 84 when I hired...

  20. is it really that hard to find a job as a LVN?
    I agree that a lot of it has to do with your location and who you know. In my area nursing homes or assisted living seem to make up 95% of where you can find a job. It is possible to get into some...
