  1. District School Nurse

    I’m thinking about applying for a position as a District Nurse. From the looks of things, I would be overseeing the entire school district, creating health plans, making sure the health aids are trained, covid monitoring, etc. I don’t have pediatric...
  2. How do I break the news to a job I just started?

    OK thank you. You are absolutely correct.
  3. I started a remote job in March working in bed desk. I work 36 hours a week from 11a to 11p. While I am glad that I made the move away from bedside, there are a lot of negative aspects about the job (rotating shifts to fill in needs, holidays, weeken...
  4. One More Week Until I Leave Bedside…Forever

    What did you hate about it?
  5. How is Working the 3-11 shift with small children at home

    I started off working 3-11 when my kids were that age and it was perfect! The shift starts off really busy but then slows down between 7-11. Sometimes I would stop at the grocery store after work if we were in need of stuff.
  6. One More Week Until I Leave Bedside…Forever

    Gosh, there were so many reasons both professional and personal. Professional reasons were the nurse:patient ratios, short staffing, difficult patients/families, management, physical demands, inadequate pay, unit politics, and not feeling appreciated...
  7. One More Week Until I Leave Bedside…Forever

    I don’t know how I did it. Hell, I don’t know how there are bedside nurses that have put in 20, 30 or 40 years. I guess I did what I had to do when my kids were babies. It was the best way to work around my husband’s schedule. Now that they are getti...
  8. One More Week Until I Leave Bedside…Forever

    I will be working as a transfer/admissions nurse. Basically, it is similar to a bed desk nurse except I will be transferring patients from one hospital to another if they need a higher level of care and such. I will be working from home, although the...
  9. My 15+ years at the bedside is coming to an end in less than one week. I feel a sense of relief that this nightmare will soon be over for me. I start a new job in a few weeks and I’m never looking back. I’m excited to start a new chapter of my life.
  10. Admissions/transfers team nurse?

    Thank you so much! I was able to find out some more information by talking to the manager. The description you gave was on point. I both excited and nervous to try something new. All I know is bedside nursing.
  11. Admissions/transfers team nurse?

    Hello! I’m looking to apply for a position as a admissions/transfers RN. From the job description, it looks like I will be helping to facilitate transfers between our hospitals, etc. So far the job is fully remote with 12 hr shifts. I’m looking to se...
  12. Anyone work as a case manager in the ED?

    There is nothing in the job description to indicate that I might be required to help out of the floor. During the worst part of the pandemic, none of the non-bedside/desk job nurses (that I personally know) were pulled away from their job to do bedsi...
  13. Anyone here a CM in the ED?

    I’ve been looking for a non-bedside job for a bit. I came across a position for a Case Manager in the ED 2-12 hour shifts a week in the afternoon. I know what CM’s do on the floors, but how to they operate in the ED? If there are any CM’s who can gi...

  15. Our floor is switching to 12 hours, so my current 8 hour afternoon position is being eliminated. I’m going to switch to 12 hour midnights, but I was surprised to find out that the weekend (on our unit) is considered starting at 7pm on Saturday throug...
