  1. New graduate employment advice

    Hello all, I am in need of some advice. I an AGACNP graduate (6/19), I did not take my exam until Nov 19 and the job search started after the Holidays were over. Little did I know that there was a pandemic brewing... Fast forward 7 months I am sti...
  2. ER to Floor...hating it

    I worked multiple types of units prior to going to the ED, including med/surg tele, solid organ transplant & thoracic (I am in a non trauma ED). My co workers in the ED look at me like I am crazy when I tell them that the ED is easier. Its a dif...
  3. Security Won’t Stop The Violence

    Seriously, you need to find a new job. Ashagreyjoy You have clearly put a lot of thought into this issue. Very well said!!
  4. ACNP - best programs in your opinion?

    I have heard good things about Vanderbilt from a co worker whose spouse just finished.
  5. I read this article with great annoyance. One of the things I love about nursing is the flexibility. The best staffing options that I ever had was a floor with a mix of 8's and 12's. While it may have been a headache for staffing (no sympathy, your...
  6. Pros and Cons of Direct Entry NP Programs?

    While this may be true, very few post certifications NP residency's exist. Good luck finding one. For what its worth, I graduate in a few weeks from a well known AGACNP program. I have 11 years of RN experience from bedside to ED and I am terrified....
  7. Retaliation for reporting abuse?

    I am really sorry this happened to you. As far as this company goes, it is lousy that they own such a large part of your market, but as they lack integrity and ethics, they are not a company worth working or in the first place. By your description, ...
  8. ARE MOST RN SCHOOLS LIKE THIS??

    My ASN program required an 82% for the semester to pass. It was not per exam, but by semester. At the time, it really stressed me out, in hind sight, I am really glad they had such high standards.
  9. Can an RN make $200K a year working 24 hours a week?

    As a per diem RN with 10 years experience, in SF I can get somewhat close to 200K IF I work 36 hours a week. I would have to do a lot of OT and pick up shifts to cover that difference. However I work days, but I don't think the differentials would...
  10. Can anyone help me?

    you should be much more specific in your question. Put something of your actual question in the headline.
  11. RANT!!! Can’t get INTO AN RN PROGRAM I AM A LPN!!! GPA ISSUES

    Have you spoken with admissions counselors regarding what you need to do to get in?
  12. RANT!!! Can’t get INTO AN RN PROGRAM I AM A LPN!!! GPA ISSUES

    I don't think this is true. While those grades will be on a transcript forever, it does not necessarily reflect your current ability. I would ask some admission counselors about retaking some of the courses (ones especially relevant to nursing) to ...
  13. Ridiculous medical mistakes on TV

    Ahhh, but she is a slayer, so mere mortal rules don't apply. What bothered me more about Faith being in a coma, was that she was in a coma in the 1st place... with all the slayer healing superpowers an all.
  14. How do you handle touchy/feely coworkers?

    You don't need to apologize!!! I had (and sometimes still do) have a difficult time with boundaries. Maybe it is because both sides of my family avoid conflict at all costs (and often to their cost) and it is difficult conditioning to shake. Howeve...
