  1. Asking for a friend, literally. I've been vaccinated, believe in the vaccine, definitely not looking to start a debate (It's all been done before a million times). A close friend of mine with ER RN experience and ECF experience is not going to be v...
  2. What's your dream nursing job?

    I'm a nights guy. Would love a nights gig where my job is monitoring the patients while they sleep. Nurse concierge, "Can I get you a turkey sandwhich and warm blanket sir?", "Would you like an ice pack and another pillow maam?". Like an overnight...
  3. Saving Towards Retirement 401K/403B

    This is an excellent thread. Great info and perspective on saving for retirement. I want to spend my late 50's and on hiking outside, not arguing with the patient seeking narcs that the doctor has cut off. Nursing shouldn't be our life. Family, f...

  9. Nurse Licensure Compact It appears there is no update. Michigan joining the license compact is currently dead in the water.
  10. Saving Towards Retirement 401K/403B

    I am not a retirement professional. I'm a nurse who loves to study retirement planning in my free time and manage my own retirement so take my advice for the unprofessional advice that it is and go educate yourself. I'm always happy to talk persona...
  11. Saving Towards Retirement 401K/403B

    My personal preference in funds are large index funds with low expense ratios. This allows for diversification over an asset class (US stocks, International stocks, Total US bond market fund) at a very low cost. Keep it simple(I prefer a 3-fund por...
  12. Hello! I wanted to encourage nurses to take a look at their retirement plans as I run into so many who have no interest in saving for retirement at all. At the very minimum, save enough to get your maximum 401K/403B match. Example: My system matche...
