    I don't know about the pay scale for sure, but it's probably higher in Seattle than Vancouver. You could try googling nurse salary and location; they might have that on Indeed. The most important,...

  3. Home Health Pros and Cons
    Oops, I just saw your latest post, so most of the post I just made is irrelevant. The job you interviewed for sounds like the insurance company wants you to do an assessment by asking the patient...

  4. Home Health Pros and Cons

  6. 1 year old RN seeking advise for obtaining a job.
    I'm not sure about whether no medical setting would hire you as an LPN or CNA due to liability issues. I have interviewed for an LPN position in the past, when I was an R.N., so some settings may be...

  10. Best area near Lewis McChord
    I agree that Lacey is a nice place to live. But it can be hard to find jobs here. Better to either get a job before moving, or else live closer to the King county area where it would be easier to...

  11. EXP ADN RN looking to move to Tacoma area..
    What will be helpful is that you have 5 years of hospital experience: that may indeed open doors. On the other hand, not having your BSN will be a drawback. According to the official sources I looked...

  14. New grad looking for peds opportunities offered a school nurse job
    I started out in a SNF and did some school nursing later in my career. I think both jobs are quite challenging, but in different ways. I found the SNF was good experience, and I learned a lot, having...

  15. New CNA Instructor Need Advice from CNA Instructors
    I haven't taught in a community college, but in a 3-week private CNA school. There is always more than enough to do to keep busy. It sounds like you're mostly concerned about lab, so this is how I do...

    Working into late hours to finish up on everything is common in LTC and ALF, but having 60 residents to pass meds to on evening shift doesn't seem common practice to me. If you feel unsafe doing so...

  19. Recent LVN grad, 1st time working in an assisted living TIPS PLS
    Which shift are you on? Maybe someone would think 60 was O.K. for 3rd shift, but I can't see it being O.K. for days or evenings, when you usually have more meds and treatments and more emergencies...
