    Supplemental Health Care

    The company says that contract work does not include a shift differential and that day and nights pay the same. Is this the norm for travel nursing?

    Walden University NP classses

    I've been admitted to the psych NP program at Walden. I'm trying to decide whether to take 1 or 2 courses at the same time. I would like to hear from someone who has taken courses there and who can speak to how difficult /easy they are and how many hours a week each course takes. I work 40 hours a week. Thanks.

    Why is Psych NP not as popular of a choice?

    Friend, You just dug up a 5 year-old thread. You would have better luck sending him a PM if you want a direct response.
  5. I live in Little Rock and interviewed for a job I didn't expect to find promising. As it would turn out, the company, United Medical Fusion, starts nurses off at $30/hour plus very good benefits. Is this the norm for this industry? It honestly was much higher than I expected. Is anyone familiar with this company? Thanks.

    nursing manager salary

    I'm interviewing for a position of nursing manager for a 32 bed geriatric psych unit that is part of a hospital, an a large metropolitan area in the mid-south. I have 5 years of RN experience, 2.5 of them in psych. Does anyone know what would be a reasonable salary? I don't want to ask for too much but I don't want to short myself either. Thanks!
  7. I have an interview with the interventional radiology suite. I'm very excited they picked me for the interview but also a bit surprised. The It's at an adult level 1 trauma academic medical center. The job posting says they prefer people with ICU or ED experience. I don't have that, but I do have heavy telemetry and stepdown experience. I've done psych for the last 2 and a half years. I need a change and this sounds fascinating. Do you think I will have trouble functioning in OR given my background? It involves conscious sedation. It's at an academic medical center so I believe they will provide a strong orientation but I don't want to get in over my head. Thanks.

  9. Hey everyone! I am a psych nurse looking to make a move away from the acute care setting. I also have worked med/surg, including renal, and surgical stepdown. It's not the patient care I'm burned out on, but everything else that comes with working in inpatient (weekends, holidays, nights...politics, constantly changing policies...I could go on). I have a phone interview coming up for a Davita chronic dialysis clinic. I do realize that there are still long shifts and some weekends to work, which I don't mind. I'm just wondering if you can tell me what it is like to work in a dialysis clinic as a RN. What does the RN do in this setting? What does the LPN and tech do? Who obtains access? I understand the individual clinics determine whether the work environment is good but can someone speak to overall how Davita treats their employees and how good are the benefits? Thanks guys.

    Gentiva on-call nursi5

    I apologize for the title typo. Can the mod correct it? Last word should read "nurse."

    Gentiva on-call nursi5

    Does anyone know anything about this position at Gentiva? It is 7 days on 7 days off. Also, how physically demanding is the job. Do you visit homes or long-term care facilities more often? Are you requires to move or lift patients? Thanks.

    Axis point Healthcare

    Does anyone know what the shift differential for nights is and what type of shifts they have eggs 7p to 7a or 11p to 7a? I'm very interested in making the transition from bedside nursing.

    Renting office for job?

    Thanks for your responses. What about renting a room at a friend's house that would be appropriate? Also, what are the contingecies for the power going out. What if it's out for several days due to winter weather? What if the internet goes down? Will an employee be penalized? What if a tornado is coming and I need to run to my closet (I'm serious, this happens a few times a year where I live). I am looking for a night shift job. Thanks.

    Renting office for job?

    I am seriously considering applying for a home triage/advice position to get out of bedside nursing due to health issues. The only problem is that I do not have a suitable room in my home that I can dedicate to the job for 8+ hours, and even if I did, there is the baby, the cats, my wife at home talking on the phone, ect. I am thinking the only way I can do this is to rent an office space, which I can do for $250 a month. Would the companies that hire positions for home work be ok with that arrangement? Any other thoughts? Thanks.

    Hired on a psych floor!

    Hey folks. After two years of med/surg and telemetry I have been given the opportunity to follow my dream job in psych nursing. The unit is part of an acute care hospital that takes the sickest of the mentally ill and has a largely indigent. I will be working nights with 12 hour shifts. They say I will receive 4-5 weeks of orientation. I would appreciate any advice people have about starting this job. I'm looking forward to it!
