  1. More work, no pay increase..

  9. More work, no pay increase..
    This is sort of off the mark, but here it goes. Aren't staff nurses increasingly taking on more work and responsibility, with no increase in pay and/or compensation?? That seems to be the crux...

  11. ANA Declares 2015 the Year of Ethics
    If the ANA was even the least bit concerned about ethics, they would grant nursing more autonomy, and insist on enforceable patient ratios. Their concerns are a joke. JMHO and my NY $0.02...

  12. Why can't hospitals do better?
    Nursing will never be important until we can charge for our services. As long as our professional services are rolled into the room rate, housekeeping, and the complimentary roll of toilet paper,...

  17. How on earth do you pay for NYU's ABSN program?
    I would not spend $70,000 on an accelerated BSN. Have you calculated how long it will take you to pay it back? Especially, since having a BSN will give you only pennies on the dollar, if even that...
