  1. What are the levels of NICUs?
    What confuses me is the hopsital I just got hired at has a level 3 special care nursery. Is that like a level 3 NICU but they just call it a special care nursery to sound less scary to parents??

  3. Nursing and the Ebola Virus
    The Spanish nurse getting Ebola terrifies me! If the disease is only bloodborne as they say, how did this health care worker get it? And the health care workers in Africa? I have to assume they...

  6. A poll, regarding nurses' opinions on Magnet status
    I just accepted a job at a magnet hospital. I've never worked at one before and I'm excited. It seems like a great hospital and there seems to be low turnover on my new unit which is a good sign.

  8. back to work after 15 months off
    We also moved states, right after I had my baby. I'm on the East Coast - the new job is in GA. In my interview it didn't seem to be a big deal that I had taken time off to stay home. I even...

    I took off almost 2 years after having a baby and just got hired per diem in L&D (my previous speciality). I also wanted per diem for the flexibility. I'm excited!

    I'm in the South and am starting a per diem job soon. Base is 30/hour, nights 34/hour, weekend nights 38/hour. So sounds right to me!

  11. shifts per week: 4 and 3 or 4 and 4?
    I hated that mandatory 4th shift with a passion. I used to think I'd do all this OT, I think I did 1 OT shift the entire 3 years I had my full time hospital job. Lol. It's exhausting! I had...

    My speciality is L&D but I'm interested in breaking into Peds. The problem is I have an almost 2 year old son and I'm an anxious mom and I know it would be very hard for me to see a critically...

  15. NEW GRAD JOB CRISIS!
    As a new grad I went straight to the L&D nurse manager (when I was in the hospital for a clinical). She told me they weren't hiring new grads at the moment. When I saw an L&D job posting online I...

  22. PRN NICU with no NICU experience?
    I agree - it seems strange that the job posting doesn't say "x years of NICU experience required". I definitely plan to apply to NICU FT at some point! It seems like they're hardly ever posted. ...
