  3. Thinking of leaving being an NP: job market vs. quality of life questions
    Interesting about not hiring NPs. I talked to other agencies and they will. Locum stuff would be ideal actually and I'm open. Many (most?) agencies require 2 years in your role to even place you....

  4. Thinking of leaving being an NP: job market vs. quality of life questions
    Distinguished Nurse, there's a number of reasons why that's tough. Most states don't allow independent practice so you'd have to have a collaborative agreement. I've met Nps in Florida that have done...

    What happened locally is between entering school and completing my degree the bottom fell out. I was aware, but when I began major hospital systems were still hiring and there was demand. Ever since...

  9. Thinking of leaving being an NP: job market vs. quality of life questions
    I mean I agree, but I haven't met any NP who works less than 60hr/wk anyway. Even primary care NPs are given excessive caseloads with call backs, charting, and follow up. I love the work of an NP,...

    Thanks you all for the advice, it's helpful and nursing does sound different from the humanities. My true love is teaching. At the same time I would like to do work, but primarily on philosophical,...
