    What should I ask

    I'll be a new grad in Dec 2006 and will start interviewing at hospitals next week. I've searched through other threads and haven't been able to find any answers for my concerns. Particularly, what should I want to know about the hospital I might be joining. I already know to ask about what sort of new grad program training and support they offer, but I want to know what should I want to know about the hospital itself and any other helpful hints that anyone could impart. Thanks in advance. Nursebeefcake

    LPN to RN...need advice...

    I went straight from LVN school to RN school and it helped tremendously. I don't want to raise anyone's hackles but from my point of view it was the exact same information. I learned a few things in RN school that I didn't learn in LVN school and vice versa. If you can do it I say go straight through.

    z-coil shoes, foot pain gone

    I sprained my ankle pretty badly about 10 years and it never was right after that and then about 5 years ago I got plantar fasciitis and have been in foot hell every since. I bought a pair about 2 months ago and love them. I in no way regret the $216 I paid for them and every time someone gasps at the price I just tell them it is all worth it if before you could barely walk. I'm just trying to figure out how am I going to get another $432 to buy two more pair. So that I'll have a work out pair and a dog walking pair to go along with my job pair.

    What was your hourly wage at your first job as a new grad?

    My very first LVN job was doing flu clinics so I made $30/hr (however this is only for 2 months). But when I had to get a real job I made $17/hr.
