  1. I learned that the hard way in 2019 while applying for other specialties. My skills were not diverse at the time due to working in home care at the time.
  2. You sure about that? I think with PDN,you have an even higher chance of losing your license. Also,any nurse in PDN will tell you the benefits AND pay are crappy. My sister,a new Lpn, makes $28/hour at a nursing home. Me, an 18 year R...
  3. I did,and guess what? My mental health started to crumble. First,the crappy health insurance. Then,no raises ever for the entire 10+ years I worked with that agency doing private duty. Meanwhile,inflation is going wild,so my pay was not even covering...
  4. I am not so sure. Very few nurses want to work with ventilators. Also,the gov of NJ,Phil Murphy, probably worsened the nursing shortage in this state by requiring Covid boosters.
  5. It is funny you mention retention bonuses. I never understood why employers won't give the staff that has been with them awhile a retention bonus instead of paying new staff sign on bonuses. From looking at the ads for nurses,it seems the bonuse...
  6. Hello. I don't know what is wrong with me, but it seems I am always looking on Glassdoor, Linked In, and Indeed and seeing jobs that have better wages and benefits than the one I am currently at. Then I apply and get the jobs, only to see another j...
  7. I'm back!

    Home health would be so much easier to work if we did not have OASIS. I get anxiety just thinking about it. I left skied visits after a year, I couldn’t take the paperwork.
  8. 53 yrs old, no BSN and feels helpless

    I think with the Philly/ NYC area, there are so many schools that employers can be choosey. But since Covid, you are right. There are some places hiring Lpns that would had not hired them before.
  9. 53 yrs old, no BSN and feels helpless

    What? Hospitals in my area won’t even hire an RN if he or she does not have their BSN. Even the VNA ads say “BSN only.” Trust me, I’ve tried for years with just my ADN and hospitals would not look at me. I had experience btw, just not acute care ...
  10. 53 yrs old, no BSN and feels helpless

    In my area, you need the BSN to work at the bedside and not the other way around. Around here,it looks like the entire nursing workforce will consist of BSN and Lpn,with the ADN left out. I guess you can either change your license or go back to scho...
  11. There's A Bright Side To Night Shift

    I just love seeing the morning sunshine,which is why I chose nights. I cannot stand the thought of working while the sun is outside and shining. The other pro is I do not have to travel during peak times,which means fewer traffic jams and reduced to...
  12. Need Advice

    I am pretty sure it isn’t allowed, esp if you signed a contract in the beginning prior to working for this agency. My agency does not allow this, but some nurses were able to get away with it in the past. You can still see what the oth...
  13. Who should decide?

    So she was discharged home,I assume with PDN nurses. Maybe she has 16 hours of skilled nursing a day. Is she brain dead or does she have global delays? Also,I just read that mom had another baby after Tinsley. Why?
  14. Should good health be a requirement for certain positions?

    With so many places hiring right now,there really is no need to put up with disrespect or any aspects of a job you do not like. I quit my PRN job doing skilled visits. Why? I do not want to put up with OASIS any more,
  15. I know how much COVID affected shortages in med surg, ICUs, and skilled nursing facilities, but I am wracking my brain as to why there is a shortage of nurses that work with pediatric patients. I know many pediatric patients did get sick with CO...
