    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    I work for an LTC facility that pretty much charges for pto. This is the first time i’ve heard of this. I actually worked for an assisted living facility for 9 years before company sold the property and we did not lose money for pto. Im sure your wonder what i mean by paying for pto. This companies starting wage is $35hr but if you want pto your wage will have to drop to $33.50hr. This is were it gets interesting if you want PTO and Benefits your hourly wage is $32. With a hourly wage of $32 your annual salary would be Gross Income$66,560.00 Take Home $53,650.46 With an hourly wage of $35 your annual salary would be Gross Income$72,800.00 Take Home$58,040.30 The take home between the wages is a $5,000 different. I think this policy is outrages. And to top it off the benefits that they offer still come out of your check every two weeks. I feel as it they are forcing you not to want benefits and pto. Please share your opinion on this !

    Is it wrong to leave a job during orientation?

    This question is solely based a dicussion at work. A recent hired decided to part ways after about 8 days of training orientation usually last about 30 days or more depending on how long the person needs. Many of the staff members were upset and began to ridicule this nurse because of it. In my opinion i think the orientation phase of the job is for either party (the job or the worker) to see if the job is a good fit. After all you wont know what kind of job it is unless you try. A co-worker of mine mentioned that every time he trains someone they run out the door and never come back lol Do you think it is wrong for a person to leave during orientation ? Share your opinion down below? My current job is a LTC facility many of our patients take psychiatric medications and have behaviors (fighting, biting, scratching etc).

    RN license expires 6 months after issue?

    I would contact the bon to avoid paying any additional fees it sounds like an error was made while processing your license number. It doesn't make sense to pay a fee for licensing twice in one year. Don't wait until its too late to contact them i would do so immediately
  4. Hi, I am a recent nursing graduate looking to start school this upcoming fall for rn to bsn. Some of the schools i am interested in are WGU, thomas edison state university and Wilmington university. I was wondering if anyone can provide insight of the school mentioned or recommend a good rn to bsn program at another school.  I want to attend a school that is online and fully accredited. One that will not affect my chances of finding a job. Or break my pockets lol. I heard that many hospitals wont except a bsn from wgu ? Is this true ? Has anyone that graduated fron wgu had issues with finding a job ?  If anyone has some information about their process experience and recommendations I greatly appreciate it

    Can you recommend a RN to BSN school to RN to MSN ?

    WGU pass or fail systems has steered me away also. I would hate to get through the program and encounter issue later on down the line.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Yes i am an RN. The unit managers are all LPN’s. The ADON and DON are RN’s as well.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Yes $32 for a new RN grad is decent. Pay is actually $31.50 but there are other places that pay $38 and more. Also in this area of NJ many lpns start out with $29 as new grads for ltc facilities. The LPN nurses in my facility actually make more than me.

    Im not too sure who signs the care plans could be the DON. My lpn supervisor advised me to update her if she needs to add changes to it.

    WELL SAID !!!! Thank you! If the DON would have presented it to me in this manner i would have a totally different outlook on the situation.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    No, but i would love to get my hands on a comprehensive employment package. The purpose of this discussion post was to obtain knowledge. Thanks for sharing your insight i learned something new. P.S. i am a new nurse

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    As previously mentioned this is the first company that i’ve worked for that utilizes a “Cafeteria Method”. I would question it regardless because this particular method is new to me. In my past experience i worked at an assisted living facility for about 10 years. Employees received PTO hours and benefits. However the hourly wage did not decrease as a result of the incentives. A nurse is trained to question anything that seems peculiar.

    NCLEX/HESI highly overrated

    I agree 100% the tests are extremely overrated. The anxiety comes from hearing tons of stories from nurses who have already taken it. I tell all student pursuing a nursing degree that 1,000’s of nurses around the world pass the nclex everyday.
  13. Lovethenurse2b25

    265 questions is almost guaranteed if your a male.

    Same applies for females i know many who have taken the nclex and have gotten all 265. I also know many who have taken the nclex male and female who have gotten 75. If they did a survey for how many people received between 75-265 the numbers would be all over the place.

    Can you recommend a RN to BSN school to RN to MSN ?

    How was your experience with WGU? I read that this program required field hours.

    Yes!

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Paid Family Leave. The second maternity leave law in New Jersey is Paid Family Leave which was introduced in 2009 to amend the state's temporary disability law. It covers the mother for six or eight weeks of paid leave to care for herself and her baby following childbirth. The NJFLI provides paid baby bonding benefits for both fathers and mothers. It replaces a portion of income for up to six weeks. Both the Federal FMLA and NJFLA provide unpaid baby bonding leave. They offer job and group health insurance protections for up to twelve weeks.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    If i take the pto option my hourly pay is $33.50 without it the pay is $35. Same goes for benefits. With both the pay decreases to $32. As stated before this was something i never heard of before. The purpose of this post was to gain insight from other nurses around the world to see if any else has heard of this option. I also worked for a home care agency bayada as a chha the pay rate varied between cases depending on client needs but there was not a flat out dollar decrease in wage for pto. But on the bright side you learn something new everyday

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Really ? Im not sure if it is different for nursing but i did have a paid maternity leave when i worked at an assisted living. It was not the best pay but i was still compensated.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Yes all the facilities i know have an onsite PA or NP. The statement was misinterpreted. The PA that comes handles all the staff member that have benefits so that could be why their is a pay cut. Thanks for your insight you provided.

  23. Hi its sounds like a very tough decision to make. I would try and work thing out until September because you don't wan to burn your bridges considering how hard it is to be accepted into a hospital residency program. I agree with not contacting the other department. News travels just as fast as it did in junior high. If fact that other manager could be afraid of you leaving once you start with her. The best advice i can give to you is to pray and do what is BEST for you. It is completely normal for one to not like the work they do. The best thing about being a nurse is knowing that there is many different field you can work in and the only way to know if you like a job is to give it a shot.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Same for the state of NJ also. This company just wants to make its own rules to better suit senior employees. We just did a ACLS course two weeks ago and not one of the lpns could attend. Which is exactly why the unit manager should be a RN especially since i work 3-11 when all of the bosses leave. There is no way a lpn can delegate and direct task of an RN. For anyone wondering i was told many things that were not true in the initial interview that i am unfortunately learning now.
  25. Lovethenurse2b25

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Several nurses that i know have stated the same thing. When i questioned it i was told the lpns have been there longer then me. Which is ultimately an excuse for not wanting to upset the senior lpns by having them pass meds.
