  1. It’s at a smaller hospital where I would get paid 15k a year more than I do now on a med surg unit. They promise me I can cross train to ICU and that will set me up to work in cath lab eventually. I would really want to eventually work in OR or cath lab and be a travel nurse. I currently get paid poorly at my job and there’s not a good unit culture. I don’t know if I should take this position. I want to travel nurse before I have a child and save up. I am 25 and currently work in a stepdown where the ratio is 1:4 and their ratios are 1:5-6 I dunno if the whole line “we can train you in other areas” is just a line. My current hospital said I could do that but there’s no opening. Should I travel or live here and be with my boyfriend and take the higher paying job at a smaller hospital with the potential to train me in cath lab. My current facility has 400 beds and the new one has 75. Will a smaller facility be an advantage or disadvantage in my career?
  2. What is your average take home pay? How lonely do you get? Is the experience worth it? How do you deal with having a partner while traveling? Is housing that hard to come by?

    Would people hire you without experience? Did you need certain certifications?
  4. What’s the best specialty to travel nurse in?

    Can I lose my license over this?

    True. But it honestly was in relation to my moms friend

    Can I lose my license over this?

    True, but I could have been talking about anyone- my mom and I were discussing end of life care because of her friends mom and an accident she had. I wasn't in the store when i mentioned I knew someone like that- I could have just been talking about a story of my moms friend. The patient's of the family member I saw is not on life support- she is not intubation or braindead in any way.

    she was kind of far from me- she just looked me in the eyes and looked away- i don't even know if she recognized me cause i was wearing my glasses and had my hair down and was wearing makeup

    Or can I get fired for it?
  12. I was on the phone with my mom in public and basically talked about how I wouldn’t want to be brain dead and have my family keep me alive forever and how I don’t want tube feeds and to just be a burden to my family. I also talked about how there’s been lots of shooting recently in my town and how in a new unit I will be on I will see lots of gunshot wounds and stories that are on the news. I look over and see my patients daughter (my patient who has been on my unit for like 3 months) standing right next to me. Can she get offended and then I get fired for this?
  13. Also, how much do you get paid for various differentials?

    Should I take the job opportunity?

    It is a great opportunity but I would have to make 95k in Seattle to maintain the same quality of life I have here on 60k

    What was your favorite nursing job and why?

    Did you get paid more doing outpatient surgery as opposed to being in the hospital? We’re you trained in surgery initially?
