  1. New Grad RN can't find a job
    These are almost never worth the money. It's much better to have people you respect, potentially nurses on floors where you want to work or your former nursing instructors, take a look at your...

  2. New Grad RN can't find a job
    To say that is low is to assume all markets are the same. New nurses in my area are hired in around $21-22/hr in acute care and less in offices. $23 for a new nurse in my area wouldn't be offensive...

    When I was in school, my clinical instructor always had a huge bag of Twizzlers, which was amazing. :-) Now on shift, I always have my clipboard, stethoscope, scissors, pens, whiteboard markers,...

  5. Reasonable RN Pay in Pediatrician's Office
    I agree with this normally. My response really wasn't a negotiation though. I knew right away when offered $16/hr there was no way we would get up to $20/hr (or even $18/hr). The "I'm sorry" was...

  7. question about personal boundaries
    I can't imagine how it was a breach as long as you weren't pressuring them to do so. If it came up in normal conversation and they approached you outside of your working hours, it would be a...

  8. Reasonable RN Pay in Pediatrician's Office
    My response was along the lines of "I'm sorry but given my scope of practice and the responsibilities you have stated for your nurse, I would not be able to accept less than $20/hr". The doctor...

  9. Reasonable RN Pay in Pediatrician's Office
    In my area, $20/hr in an office setting is a pretty good rate. I know the thinking is that you're not doing as much with acute needs and your non-tangible benefits can really make the pay cut...

  11. IM inj hitting humerus
    I hit the bone on my very first IM injection when in nursing school but had been warned it can happen with super thin (especially older) people. My patient didn't flinch and didn't notice at all.

    Stay on the waiting list. It is not uncommon to have 5-10 students move from the waiting list to having a spot in classes, as people's schedules change or they don't pay or whatever the case may be....

  16. Failed LVN School
    No, not crazy at all. Must nursing programs (or medically related programs) have a minimum percentage to continue moving forward. My program was 75% and that was not 74.9% - there was no rounding. ...
