  1. I’ve been told by many agencies that local travel work is doable. I was offered remote telehealth last week. Don’t care much about taxation, just need a job. As for the relevance of what I posted, it was clearly a very emotional experience and...
  2. So I took several years off to care for my dad who had liver cancer, received a transplant that wound up having devastating complications, then, once they were finally able to surgically correct it, he started to have extreme pain and a very hard tim...
  3. What area were you entering into? I have never heard of a physical needed for employment. I know this place doesn't do that but a trucker friend had to so that he could obtain his CDLs (DMV ordered), I believe. I find that to be a bit intrusive fo...
  4. I am applying to the local hospital shortly and I am pretty sure I will get the job. I know that sounds bold or maybe arrogant but it appears they really need nurses AND I have several contacts in their organization who worked with me while I assume...

  8. Who qualifies as an essential worker?

    I am a volunteer with a food distribution (mobile- pickup and delivery foodbank) non-profit and was offered a vaccine through them yesterday so this is astounding to me.
  9. Unsure new nurse navigating the job hunt

    So I went from LTC/SNF to med-surg and I was so relieved by the change in workflow and the culture. The number of patients I cared for at the LTC/SNF was often very overwhelming. In med-surg, I definitely had moments but I (very) rarely reached the...
  10. Offered nights in first job but turned it down

    Congrats on passing the NCLEX! The ANA offers a medical-surgical review CE course for $45. There are also a lot of other great education options on their site, though a bit pricey. I think you get what you pay for. CEs are abundant, though I ...

    I was hoping to convey to you how much value you have. Experience is gold in the nursing world and you have so much of this. You are not washed up! I have been job hunting extensively and have seen a broad mix, though that mostly depends on w...
