    Should I go for it?

    Mine is a similar story. Lifestyle-wise, it was the best decision for my family as I was able to be home summers and the afterschool hours (at the time, I had two teens and a 10yo). Though I took a 20% pay cut, it was a much less stressful gig and...

    Brooklyn per diem for new grad BSN

    Thanks for the feedback! Here in northern New England, as well, acute care settings would likely not hire a new grad as a per diem, but long term care absolutely would. Do you think LTC would possibility for per diem employment in NYC? LM NY, as ...

    Hi, all! Daughter is a soon-to-be BSN (has been an LTC CNA for years) and planning a move to Brooklyn. What are the per diem nursing opportunities in Brooklyn for a new grad? She will also be pursuing arts-related professional interests, so won't...

    Should I join a teachers's union?

    Whether or not you are a dues-paying member of the Association, you are a member of the bargaining unit and already entitled to all the benefits in the teachers’ contract. I do recommend you join and pay dues, as the dues go toward supporting the wo...

    NELRP is there a thread?

    Is there already a thread for RNs waiting to hear about awards from the Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program? When I search, I can only find previous year's threads. https://www.benefits.gov/benefit/449

    School Nurse Interview

    I interviewed for a HS position at the same time I was offered my current (elementary) position. The principal was very interested in how I would handle an assessment for substance abuse (drugs/alcohol) and the care/advice I'd give to pregnant teens...

    Out Of Office sign?

    I have a red sign in the silhouette of a stop sign, stating "The nurse is away, return to class." (Our office does not handle any nursing care.) At the beginning of each year the teachers are reminded to teach the children that the stop sign means go...

    Any school nurses doing things differently?

    Luckily, in my state most public schools are on spring break this week, so the situation has time to play out and we can develop a plan of how to deal with it. Our School Health Department has daily advisories. We always exclude any kid with fever...

    Per diem compensation

    Hi, all! I've been a camp nurse (RN) for four seasons in New England, but I skipped last summer due to an illness. I was lucky to work at a great camp--plain old, good old summer camp for girls--but the pay was pretty slim. Now that my daughter has...

    Do nurses use calculators?

    In testing situations in school they were not allowed. However, on the floor in clinical we were required to check all calcs with a calculator. Personally, I think it's irresponsible practice to not check your math with a calculator, even if another...
