  1. OSU new grad pay
    And for you to say "I'm not really a union guy," what's that based off of? Obviously never working as a nurse. Unions are GREAT when they fight for the benefit of the nurse and not for the healthcare...

    I'm not sure how much they pay for new grads, but in 2012, they offered me a position in ICU for a little over $25/hr with a 4.75 night diff and 4.75 weekend diff. I had a year and a half of...

  4. Enjoying my first travel assignment in Hawaii!
    I've been a nurse in CA, it's a pain to get licensure there but it's so nice to feel safe delivering care as a nurse. What is it like being an RN in Hawaii?

  11. Adult ICU to PICU??
    They have a CVICU for fresh hearts and cardiothoracic surgeries. I'm not sure what ECPR is, is it like ECMO? Thanks for the recommendations! I have my interview Thursday afternoon :)

  13. Any ICU turned NICU nurses?
    Thanks for sharing your experience!! I was wondering, though, how many weeks of orientation do you think I should have prior to working on my own? What helped most with the transition?

  16. Weird, but missing my old state's nurses union!
    I found myself back home to Ohio after a 1 1/2 year stent in California as an RN (and I was a regular FTE, not a traveler). The ICU I came from was a well-oiled machine and staff morale seemed to be...

  20. Columbus Ohio=no new grad rn jobs
    Mount Carmel is very likely to hire new grads, try finding the name of a manager and handing your resume and cover letter in in person. I worked for Mt Carmel for 2 years and in that time there were...

    I would try to stick it out. Biting the bullet and taking the extra 2 weeks of orientation looks a lot better than being difficult or arrogant. You also don't want to be thrown under the bus by...
