  1. Am I being offered a fair pay?
    I worked in ICUs for 10 years, ERs for 2. I went into home care and made 100,000 my first year. Year 3, 183,000 and I have the w2 in a frame to prove it. Home care will not pay for your experience,...

  2. Changing Careers to Nursing as 35 year old man
    I am a male RN (ADN) x 16 years, all at the bedside. I tell you no BS. The people that work under you resent you. It's not you they are angry at but it gets directed at you. The people under you...

  3. HIPPA is a joke.
    They can't "up" your rate. They can "advise" the Boss what kind of increase will be coming.

  4. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    You are correct, my mistake. However, the end result, need for and use of the 90/10 is the same.

  5. HIPPA is a joke.
    I never said the Obama admin. is right wing. However, one only has to look at his history on trade policy to see that his admin. is business friendly. Hipaa was passed under Clinton, however, it was...

  6. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    I looked at your profile. More staff with a BSN means nothing to patient care. If a floor should have 8 nurses on duty and only 4 are on duty, which is routine today, then the care suffers. I have...

  7. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    Sorry, I hit the send key again. I will never get used to typing on an iPhone. As I was saying - most of the income today is from the online schools. I do not see NSG Mags in a hurry to bite the...

  8. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    I would not trust any NSG publication concerning this debate. In this area of the country, Gannett education has been a major advocate of the BSN Only push. Gannett is a subsidy of Gannett...

  9. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    That school is not known to me. You should call and ask them about their completion rate. If they are not forthright with a response then ask more questions.

  10. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    The 90/10 rule lets schools admit students into programs that should never be near a college. Think of a kid that has a C average in math. The kid wants to be a rocket scientist but gets rejected by...

  11. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    However, let me address your point if I understand it correctly. I live in Phila, Pa. I work with nurses that owe 100,000 grand in student loans for a BSN. They did not attend the city's only ivy...

  12. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    I think you missed the point. Many parties have an interest in pushing non BSN RNs back to school. Non BSN RNs are being used to rip off the American public. If the online schools can get one non BSN...

  13. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    Looking to return to school for your BSN?? Make the school pay for it. One RN in a classroom allows funding to continue for nine dropouts.

  14. HIPPA is a joke.
    That's not the point. True, HIPPA has fines and allows the public to sue for damages. However, when it comes to protecting health information it is a failure. The end result of HIPPA is less health...

  15. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    Sorry, I hit the "Send" tab by mistake !!!!! This is a first draft only. It has a few type errors and still needs some work. I am a male RN with big thumbs. One tiny bit off and my work went into...

  16. BSN Only Is A Wall Street Scam
    The push for Magnet status and BSN Only is rooted firmly in fraud. As usual, this Wall Street scam has many players and angles. To those that study propaganda and disaster capitalism; the latest from...

  17. HIPPA is a joke.
    Probably not. HIPPA was passed under Bush. The Bush administration was expert at passing laws with public friendly sounding names. Much like the right wing think tanks we have today.

  18. HIPPA is a joke.
    There are two parts to HIPPA. The part the public and the health care industry fret about is the "private information" part. However, the second part of HIPPA is never mentioned. Welcome to the world...
