  1. Horrified at what I have seen go on in this nursing home
    Let me just say I worked in a nursing home for 2 years before getting a job at the hospital. It was horrid. For me, it wasn't only how the residents were treated (by some nurses and techs, not all...

  7. BSN versus ADN
    Thanks for all the opinions. I am most likely going for my BSN (wish I could change my user name lol). It'll be worth it in the end, I'll spend almost as much time in school for either. Plus BSN will...

  8. CNA jobs and the distance it takes to get to them!
    Where I live, places are always hiring CNAs. Whether its LTC, home health, or hospice. It may not always be glamorous but my LTC facility is so desperate for CNAs (we are ALWAYS short, every shift),...

  18. Why are Nurses so mean to each other?
    Has no one heard the phrase "Nurses eat their young"? Its very true from what I have seen. Not everyone is like that, but it is not completely rare to see it.

  20. Anyone know of nursing homes or agencies hiring nurses with zero years of experience?

  24. Should I become a nurse for the money??
    If you want something "just for the money" try something in business. My sister in law is an accountant and makes 6 digits a year. I would not suggest nursing for money.
