    Hang in there, things are bound to change. It is just awful out here right now. And remember there is no shame in working at something else to pay the bills!

    Thanks Pexx. I know how lucky I am. I don't think I would have a shot if I wasn't already working at my hospital. It has become a real "who you know" game out there which is really tough. Keep the...

  10. Should CNA's be allowed to continue to work as such?
    It is happening all over Massachusetts, and in many parts of the country. No new grads welcome! Many new grad nurses worked as certified nursing attendants while in school, only to be let go once...

  11. MGH is offering new grad ICU internship for $11.44 an hour?
    I have never questioned whether this could be a good opportunity for learning. I have ONLY questioned the pay scale. I cannot afford, have the time, nor have any desire to volunteer for 40 hour...

    I am going to try to be brief as you all know how long winded I can be. No one is saying that internships are not good! And again it is not promoted as an internship, but a residency with a "salary"...

    I also thought that nurses would have stood together on this issue. I unfortunately am sadly disappointed. Wouldn't it benefit nursing if we all strove for more money? I have read things like "they...

  21. MGH is offering new grad ICU internship for $11.44 an hour?
    It is still too low a figure for a full time position internship, residency, or otherwise. They could have done a lot of things! They could have offered less applicants the chance and paid an entry...

  23. MGH is offering new grad ICU internship for $11.44 an hour?
    OK. I am in the minority here. $11.44 is a reasonable starting wage for a new grad! I haven't seen wages that low for an R.N. anywhere else in the country, and I have looked. Experienced nurses are...
