I disagree... If I could live in any state, I would quickly move back to Texas. Low cost of living, short winters, and beautiful weather over all.

Politics is when you strive to be a leader and join administration because you believe in nursing but then you get the backlash from the union members against you for the smallest reason and then upper management that sees you as the as amin. have no union protection uses you as the sacrificial lamb to calm the union .....as they carry on with their plans without your consent. What do you have to say about this

In my experience management jobs may pay well and have a nice yearly bonus thrown in, but there is usually a lack of job security. I have lived thru 2 CNO's being walked out of the building by security and watched many more admin staff fired and let go due to downsizing and being on the losing side of politics. Staff nursing is a much more stable job, at least where I work, you really have to screw up bad to lose your job!

The politics of nursing are one aspect that excites me! We can push meaningful legislation and make people healthier. Nurses were a big push in not allowing smoking indoors or close to a building. Hopefully if we stick together we can help it be banned once and for all! Think of how many patients we can impact! This is but one of many examples.

Have you tried, non bedside non patient care, completely just you and the computer nursing?

The tech, insurance, and chart review side of nursing I think is more secure, because they ensure the hospitals get the most money

Define work politics. I think it’s a term people throw around with very different personal meaning
