  1. 100k salary?
    Man, I was in Minneapolis once. Really liked it, thought it was a lovely city. It was in June and the locals were bemoaning the heat wave (highs in the low 80s). Don't think I can do the...

    Just got this in a TNA (Texas nurses' association) flyer today. . . for experienced (2 years seems sufficient) ER nurses for $45/hr (until the end of Sept) plus possible $20,000 bonus for 2 year...

  4. getting a job with an ASN and a BA?
    I would hope some of our Boston area nurses would speak up, we have several frequent posters from that area. It is my understanding that the Boston market is especially competitive. If you want to...

  5. Circ boards
    Our circs are done by the pedi surgeons. They won't even show up if the parents don't sign the consent first. Very ethical? I'm up front with the parents: "You have the right to have a full...

  7. BSN- worth the extra time for little extra salary?
    Absolutely depends on your particular job market. But it is faulty logic that one can get through the ADN more quickly, get a bedside job, then be more financially stable while you relax getting...

  8. Article: Paramedics equal to RNs
    First of all, apologies for assuming that BR157 was the OP. My mistake. Now, I did go read your links. Most were online blog posts with little more than commentary. I reviewed the peer-reviewed...

  9. ADN vs. ABSN
    Same thing I hear all the time here about this and similar topics. . . How's the job market for ADNs versus BSNs in your area? You expressed a specific desire for acute care and in many (not all)...

  10. Article: Paramedics equal to RNs
    I repeat my earlier questions. . . The OP's rhetoric sounds incredibly similar to what we hear from NPs. They want to practice at the full scope of their practice. Their main argument is that...

  11. Article: Paramedics equal to RNs
    Yes, is this a measure to fill a need, decrease costs, or create jobs for Paramedics? My husband went from medic to RN (Excelsior). There was plenty to learn. He also had to learn to adjust to bring...

  12. challenge examination for becoming a registered nurse?
    I think people may be a little quick to be offended. This person admits they are seeking information, i.e., they don't know. Especially in a profession like nursing where one can enter with either...

  13. Which Mac Air? 11" or 13"
    I don't know when they come out but have you seen the new 12 inch coming out? It's purty. . . I went all through RN to BSN with the Mac book Air. Light enough to carry in a big purse, big enough...

  14. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    Yes, there would be, especially if you had the "right kind" of previous bachelor's degree (in a science-heavy concentration). It's almost like they calculated that into the equation. . . So, we...

  15. ADN vs BSN Battle
    I'm not questioning your statement but want to hear from others about this. Are you guys really just now noticing a trend to requiring graduate degree for management position? I remember when I...

  16. (Not so) Daily Affirmations
    My unit has hired back several nurses after just a few weeks of being gone when they realize they made a big mistake. There have been some tense situations with hard feelings when this didn't...

  17. Neonatal Nurse vs Neonatal Nurse Practitioner
    I don't think we have to disagree. I can easily concede that NNP practice in other areas is as you described. I would love to see our NNPs operating as your group does. I am not a fan of how our...

  18. Neonatal Nurse vs Neonatal Nurse Practitioner
    Generally, I love our NNPs but I have concerns that of all the NP models out there, NNP seems to follow the medical model more than other NP specialties. I know they hate the term "physician...

  20. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    This is why I enjoy debating with you. We have several contrary opinions. But you are not blindly loyal to any given opinion and are willing to actually debate!! Fresh breath of air . . .

  21. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    Seems like those ABSNs and DEMSNs would be much more indebted than the typical BSN or ADN. I believe you have previously discussed how administrators prefer BSNs because they have so much debt they...

  22. Delayed Cord Clamping
    I think this is the crux. That and tradition. Developed in a time when there wasn't really much the provider could do, cutting the cord gave them a "purpose" perhaps? I don't go on deliveries,...

  23. Delayed Cord Clamping
    Anecdotally we've noticed that the little ones struggle to stay warm when they are laying there for 30-60 seconds. Honestly, most of the time the OBs won't wait more than 30 seconds. When we first...
