  1. I'm not "choosing" any specialty yet before I have done my full research on them. I am doing research on multiple nurse specialties right now though. Any specialty I end up choosing I obviously would like the specialty, the job, and the work environm...
  2. Again, I am looking into different nursing specialties right now. If there is a specialty that seems to be a better fit, it would make sense to look into that option as well. Is there anything wrong with considering different specialty options to pur...
  3. How many full-time remote jobs are there for PMHNPs? I am looking into the PMHNP nurse specialty and I am wondering if there are many full-time fully remote PMHNP jobs paying well (over 150k). Can you get these jobs as a new PMHNP graduate?
  4. Thanks for all of your posts guys. I really appreciate it. From my research, there are many full-time remote Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) jobs that pay well (over 130k-200k), correct? I have searched the job listings and ...
  5. Are there many jobs RNs can do that do not involve direct patient contact and can be done in an office setting or remotely at home? I am planning to be a bedside and ICU nurse after nursing school but I may be having a family soon and I don't want to...
  6. Do CRNAs work mostly with COVID patients? I am planning to be a CRNA and I would like to know if CRNAs work with COVID patients mostly. Can you choose what population of patients/cases you want to work with as a CRNA?
  7. Okay, got it. Also, there is no PPE shortage anymore in hospitals right? Do hospitals now have an oversupply of PPE for nurses and healthcare workers? Will they have an oversupply of PPE for nurses and healthcare workers in the future as well? I am j...
  8. Basically, when I become a nurse I would like to wear an Elastomeric Half Facepiece Respirator (P100 masks) or better (and not a fitted n95 mask) when I am anywhere in the hospital. This is because I do not trust fitted n95 masks to protect me as wel...
  9. Okay got it. Why do they not let you use your own respirator? Can you ask your manager if you can use your own respirator and have them approve it? Basically, I would like to use my own P100 respirator when working as a nurse and I would like to know...
  10. Well, according to the CDC website, there are 4 types of PPE respirators that healthcare workers can wear: 1. Filtering Facepiece Respirator (FFR) aka n95 masks 2. Elastomeric Half Facepiece Respirator (P100 masks) 3. Elastomeric Full ...
  11. Okay, if you think the hospital-supplied respirators are not sufficient, can you purchase better respirators to wear at work? I am just wondering if this is allowed at hospitals for nurses.
  12. Do hospitals allow nurses to wear their own respirators of choice to prevent from getting COVID? Can nurses purchase any respirator and wear it at work at any hospital, or are there certain respirators that you cannot wear at work? Basically, I ...
  13. Should a pre-nursing student get a nursing related job to increase future nursing job prospects? I am taking my nursing pre-requisites right now for ABSN program. I already have a Bachelors degree. I am wondering if I should start working or voluntee...
  14. Okay I understand. I assume that all nursing students will be given the COVID vaccine when they enroll and before they go in the hospital correct?
  15. I am a pre-nursing student wanting to go into nursing school this year or next. I have finished most of my pre-requisites and also have a bachelor's degree in biology. Are there any downsides into going into nursing school right now amidst the COVID ...
