    Base pay at Fl hosp ORlando?

    I recently passed the NCLEX-RN. I live in the Orlando Area. I have been talking to people who have told me that the starting salary in Florida Hospital in Orlando is 23 dollars/Hr. and that if you get in the weekend program where you'll be working 12 hrs for 3 days, every FRI,SAT, SUN of the every month. You will be payed a 5 dollars/Hr incentive, a total of somewhat around 28 dollars/hr. Maybe you can get something more since you already have 2 years of experience. Another thing if you work in specialized areas Like the ER, Telemetry, OR, you'll be payed better on those areas. Good Luck !

    To aspirate or not to aspirate?!

    11 years as RN Nurse here, I always had the Doubt, is it was really necessary to apirate ? Since I'd never hit a vessel. Well on a injection in the Deltoid 3 years ago I had enough return to fill a chemestry tube. SO PLEASE, ASPIRATE ! I was glad I followed what they thought me in Nursing School.

    NCLEX-RN 2nd Time Around Test Takers

    I took the test three times, Saunders, Kaplan Strategies and Kaplan Q-bank is my recommendations to 2do or multiple takers. Make sure you review and really understand the content on the Kaplan Q-Bank Questions, not just empty answering the questions, learn the content surrounding each question. And most important stick to one and ONLY comprehensive book not several, to many books will only confuse you. Hope these tips help you succeed on your next try. May God be with you on that day.

    I wish I had studied this before Nursing 101.......

    Pre-calculous and Chemistry where my killers, they require a lot of time, effort and dedication. Do not get caught off guard with them, study hard since day one. ( I graduated Nursing in 98 and medicine in 05) I still remember those two classes.
  5. Well I was not born in the United States, but I am a naturalized US Citizen, my country is now the United States, where I live, where my family lives, where my friends and fellow Americans live, and the same is for the permanent residents of the United States (Green card Holders) who will live and work all their lives in the US. I have worked hard and earned my position with lots of tears, if I hadn't become a nurse I would still be living in the United States regardless, still working here. Working as what ? Maybe I would frying nuggets at McDonalds, sweeping the floors of a local mall (Nothing wrong with people who this, we need them too) ? Is this what I deserve because I have an accent or a tanned skin ? Should I be a second class american citizen ? Is not America that land of opportunity for everybody, the land that has attracted people from all over the world for centuries ?. It is Immigration that has made America stronger, since its early beginnings with the pelgrims. So in my personal battle, I had to decide to stay at MC D's frying nuggets or become a nurse ? So I became an RN, then recently became a Doctor, now in the process to apply for a residency in Surgery. I will live in the States no matter what I work, I've decided to give america my best and serve its people, and also make a better life for me and my family. Think about this ? If you are an US born american having the job of hiring nurses, would you hire me ? Or would you hire an RN who is your cousin or your bother in law ? You'd definitely be very tempted to hire him over me, unless you need me. I don't think this foreigners are taking anyone's job, the country itself need this input of foreign nurses as well as the american nurses. But I may be wrong.... This is just my humble thoughts.
  6. I wish professors would consider questions like this one, they are very ambiguous, it seems answer A is the right choice, I think both A & D are not to be included in the plan of care but Between avoiding Humor and challenging the client with final stage alzheimer's disease seems to be the most damaging to the client than just simply forgetting to make a joke. Umm, we will have to see what the books say about Advance Alzheimer's Disease care.
