    UPS Drivers make HOW much????

    My DH works for FedEx as a driver they don't pay anything near what UPS pays. But he used to work for UPS as a package handeler (sorting) and he says now in order to even become a driver you have to be a package handeler FIRST. That position doesn't pay anything. So many of the UPS drivers work years at minimum wage first before getting to be a driver.

    $22.78

    Yes, these are my options. The ortho neuro position pays 22.78 is from 7a-7p. Not including shift differential. The Peds position is M-F 4p-11p with no weekends at 24.90 base pay with an additional 3 dollars differential! Big difference but I'm not sure about the 5 days a week thing.

    $22.78

    Caliotter, does it make sense to question the rate? I'm thinking of calling the recruiter to let her know about the other offer. What do you think?

    $22.78

    Whoa, $18 an hour? Hmmm I wonder what cost of living would be in that area. Here in South Fl cost of living is sky high.

    $22.78

    ...an hour seems a little low for an RN with 2 years of experience, doesn't it? I was a Peds RN for 2 years, it didn't work out and now I'm starting a new position in ortho neuro adults. Making less than before! Doesn't make sense to me. Doesn't $22.78 sound too low for an experienced RN in South Florida? This offer is at an HCA facility. I was also offered a positon at a Level 1 trauma hospital in Peds at $24.90 an hour which sounds reasonable to me. But the problem there is that it is Monday thru Friday! I don't know I just feel like I'm being jipped at $22.78??? Any thoughts?

    Resource RN/RN Assistant?

    Nurse manager states I would also do admits if it got slow...I'm just so worried about getting into that position and turning down the other...then things don't work out for me with the resource nurse position.

    Resource RN/RN Assistant?

    That's exactly the kind of things the nurse manager explained to me I would be doing...how did you feel about that 5th nurse position FirefightingRN? Was it a needed position?

    Resource RN/RN Assistant?

    Hi people. I'm facing a dilemma and am asking for some advice... I was recently offered an RN position in ortho/neuro at a small local hospital. Pay isn't that good but its on days 3 12hr shifts. Soon after I was also offered a position at a larger trauma hospital with better pay and in my specialy which is Pediatrics. The problem is: the Pediatric position is an "RN Resource" position? Uh? Has anyone ever heard of such a position? They told me the position isnt the traditional RN position because I won't have my own team. Instead I will be assisting RN's with tasks that they don't have time to complete. Especially admissions during shift change! I'm confident I can manage this position but i m afraid that this is a very dispensable position. As in if census is low or there isn't anythng to on the unit that I would be sent home or even worse, the position might be terminated? Any advice guys? I'm looking for a long term position with a good hospital. My background is 2 years as Pediatric RN. Thanks!

    introverted nurses -what is the best job?

    Wow you sound exactly like me when I first started. Co workers would say I dont smile enough and I always found myself NOT in the "in" crowd. Yet I always connected well with my patients. I soon found out that as a nurse it was essential to form a good working relationship with all members of the team. Even if it meant faking it. I learned this lesson a little too late. But I did learn that being assertive, friendly, and smiling with others goes a long way. Maybe try smiling more even if you dont chit chat much. :)

    Portfolio vs. Resume

    From what I understand, once you have a portfolio you continue to build on it throughout your career. So although I may not have much to put in it now, I hope to add more to it in the future :) Also, I think a well put together portfolio can show the interviewer that you take pride in your work and shows off organizational skills.

Also, how do you show the interviewer or nurse manager your portfolio? Is it at the beginning of the interview? Are you supposed to leave it with them?
