    We actually do have a guest bedroom. Maybe I'll try to set that up so I can be comfortable sleeping in there. I like sleeping in my own bed better, but that may be the only way I could be...

    I spoke to my manager and they really don't have need for PRN on days right now so I guess I'll stick with the nights and see if we can adjust. Thursday is my last orientation day and after that...

  14. Is it ok that I just don't like it?!
    I don't believe all nurses need med surg. In fact some nurses I know who started in med surg and hated it quit bedside nursing altogether which is sad. I went straight to L&D and have no desire to...

    Over 2 months after I applied for that NICU PRN job my application status changed to "considering". Which I guess means that they may consider hiring someone with no NICU experience for PRN! ...
