  1. How common is it for employers to pay for BSN?
    I received tuition reimbursement when I was working on my BSN. The hospital did not care what you were working on, as long as it was in a field that would benefit them and you earned at least a 2.5...

  3. What school nurses REALLY do
    I'm a retired PICU nurse and on rough days, some of us ( me included) would joke that we needed a job as a school nurse. How little we knew about school nursing! In my retirement, I am working as a...

    Oh yes absolutely, I didn't want to imply that you can get sloppy. Always keep your support deep down and let gravity work with you. At the same time, have you seen the typical MICU patient? Many are...

  9. Should I join a teachers's union?
    Our school RNs have their own bargaining unit in the teachers unions with their own district governor and faculty rep. I wouldn't ever work without a union or in a right to work for less state.

  10. Phasing out Unit Clerks???
    Do nursing stuff in a "pinch?" The last time I checked, the "N" meant nurse. Even if they paid me LPN wage to do the clerks job, I wouldn't do it. I went to school to be a nurse. What an...
