  1. Hey Caroline! Your post about all the Manatee and SRQ county hospital were super helpful! I am a RN student looking to come to the area. Might you have time to talk a little further on the hospitals as the other post was quite a bit dated. THank you!!-Callie

  2. If I had spent so much time earning the above degrees, I think I would want people to know about them. Yeah, LPN or RN is sufficient, but I think those who have earned advanced degrees deserve to wear them proudly.
  3. Your employer's policy re: *snow and ice*?

  4. Nclex Prep - Which Is Best?

    I agree. I wouldn't waste money on prep classes with a 3.5 GPA. Just get the Kaplan review books and do some of their questions so you'll be familiar with the test layout, which you most likely already are since most nursing programs utilize testing ...
  5. Relocating to Ann Arbor/Detroit Area--HELP!!

    Hey Erin! I have heard back from several units I forwarded my resume too at both hospitals I applied to-- The U and St Joes-Mercy (Both in Ann Arbor). In both cases, a nurse recruiter contacted me the following day, we discussed the areas I would be...

  7. Can't wait to move to Michigan

    Kris, my husband's grandfather (90 years old) has lived there his whole life, and my husband used to spend all his summers up in Alpena. We were just there last week, drove up US 23 along Lake Huron-- OMG, it was soooooo beautiful! I fell in love wit...

  9. Trinity-Healthcare vs U of M?

    Hello all! Can anyone tell me about the Trinity hospitals? I'm considering employment with St Joseph-Mercy in Ann Arbor, and am also considering the U of M-- but I hear the U of M is more of a "transient" hospital-- people coming and going--higher tu...
  10. Can't wait to move to Michigan

    Well, we just got back this week from a trip up there, and it looks like Ann Arbor (outskirts) is the area we'll be going to. We drove all OVER the state. Went as far north as Tahqumenon Falls (breathtaking in the winter!) and back downriver. We ha...
  11. Can't wait to move to Michigan

    I cannot wait to move up north to Michigan!!! This may come as a surprise, but I live in "beautiful, sunny Florida." I've lived here almost thirty years. Now I know the following may seem offensive to some, but this is coming from an almost native w...
  12. What is your biggest nursing pet peeve?

    LOL Stevieray! I've been out of the OR for awhile, and am honestly considering going back. Thanks for the heads up! I guess saying "wheatie" is inappropriate also? :chuckle Thanks though, things like that bug me, so I will definately remember this...
  13. What is your biggest nursing pet peeve?

    Sorry Bets, if it seems like I keep responding to all your posts--Actually I agreed with most, but I have to disagree with this one on a technicality. (spell check, please!?) :) Anyway, I just wanted to remind you that if one passes the NCLEX, one ...
  14. What is your biggest nursing pet peeve?

    Ugh. I am guilty of this too. And you know what is worse? I used to pride myself on my grammar and spelling-- wanted to be a writer. In fact it's still a long-term goal of mine (Have a WIP that I've been playing with for years now), but I've noticed...
  15. What is your biggest nursing pet peeve?

    LOL!! Absolutely, this is my BIGGEST pet peeve! I don't even mind answering call lights for others when I have a chance, in fact I would rather pass the time actually *working* than reading cosmo or some other such nonsense that some enjoy. Real work...
