  1. Salary/Wage of New Grads Nurses in PA, specifically Philadelphia Area
    $30ish/hr at Jeff more than two years ago. Since then, Jeff has had a "market raise" and is now paying more, but new grads do better at Penn, Temple, and Main Line Health.

  4. Side business ideas for nurses
    Because baking is chemistry that's good for the soul! I'm going to open up a bakery and a gym. Buy something from one, get a discount for the other.

  7. Dilaudid for self-driving patient.
    This is a really interesting topic and I'm glad it's not something I've come across. I'm really interested to keep hearing how people have handled this in the past.

  12. Withheld meds
    I don't see why you'd need an order to withhold the meds. You couldn't give them. The only thing I didn't see you mention that I would have done is contacted the primary physician again to let them...

    Something good happened at that place that I hate. My coworker told me that at his review he was asked who on the unit gives him support, and he told our boss that I do. Apparently she told him that...

  15. Help! Travel nursing or fulfill a contract?!

  18. Why don't you just read the chart?
    And what if the doc still has the H&P in hand? Where do you think I'm going to get my information if not from you? I don't feel like I ask a lot of questions. It is obvious as soon as the nurse...

  23. Staffing issues in emergent situations
    We don't have anything like that. We can call our supervisor, but chances are rare that they'll have someone to send us, especially if it is based on acuity and not nurse-patient ratio.
