    University of South Alabama NP Fall 2011

    I have a question for the people that have applied to USA MSN or DNP program, did you guys write a personal statement when you applied? Do you think it is beneficial to do so?

    Quiting a contract assignment...will it hurt my chances??

    So how can I find out the terms and conditions of the contract if it is not listed in anything I signed? I have no doubt it will break all ties with the agency which I am ok with but its the hospital that I worry about. This will be the last contract I will ever do.

    Quiting a contract assignment...will it hurt my chances??

    Ok so I got all the paper work I have signed regarding the contract I started and it doesn't mention any consequences if someone was to break the contract, BUT when I told the agency I wanted to resign from the assignment, they started threatening me saying I will break all ties with them and the Hospital!! Well how can that be if nothing like that is mentioned in the paperwork I signed?? Are they just bluffing?

    Quiting a contract assignment...will it hurt my chances??

    Yes I think I signed a whole bunch of papers but I didn't get a copy of any of it, I guess it would be good idea to request for them. Thanks guys.

    Quiting a contract assignment...will it hurt my chances??

    That's a good question, this was my first contract assignment so I did not really ask a lot of questions, or didn't know the right questions to ask at least. But shouldn't they have discussed it with me? would the terms and conditions have stated my future opportunities for the hospital NOT through the agency?
  10. So I started a 7 week contract assignment through an Agency with a major local hospital in clinical informatics, no patient care, basically learning the computer system and then training the physicians on it. The agency had told me once I complete the assignment, I have the opportunity to go per diem with the Hospital, which is what I want!! It's a way to get my foot in the door. But one week into the assignment, I got offered a position that I wanted with potential to go full time with benefits which is what I need!! So even though I was only hired as part time, they gave me over time hrs my first week while I'm into my second week into the contract with the hospital. By the way, my second job knows that I am working a 7 week contract and said they were willing to work around their schedule, but I wasn't expecting this many hrs!!!!Well, I am just soooo exhausted, and thinking of just quiting my contract, My question is, if I do so, would it hurt my chances to get per diem jobs at the Hospital in the future? Would they know since it's through an agency and I'm technically not a Hospital employee? What should I do?

    New job in peds clinic!! What to expect?

    Thanks for the response so far. I was explained that the clinic I will be working at is a general peds clinic that sees well child checkups as well as sick visits. They said that it is a clinic where the medical students and PA students go for their rotation along with certified physicians, so their used to a lot of teaching, which sounds like a good learning environment...i hope. Oh, and it is not a specialty clinic.
  12. Hey there all! I just recently received a job offer at a Peds outpatient clinic affiliated with a major children's hospital I'm soooo excited and nervous!!! I am a relatively new nurse and have been doing case management for the past 6 months, so I havnt done any hands on nursing stuff for awhile! I wanted to know if anyone here has ever worked in a peds clinic? what is an RN's role at a peds clinic? what are some of the things I can better prepare myself for the position? Any tips on ivs and blood draws on children? Thanks for all your help!!

    Caseload for Pediatrics in Outpatient Setting

    I just recently got a job in case management for special needs kids in an office setting, and will start next week!!! so I have limited information to tell you right now, but from what my nurse supervisor told me, since the area I will be working in is special needs kids IN foster care, the case loads will be slightly less due to the complexity of it, and each nurse gets about 20-25 cases. We also have to take turns being on call, and make home visits every 3 months on each kid, and sometimes we will have to go to the hospitals for admissions. I can't wait to start and leave my current job in psych!!
  15. Hello everyone, I recently got offered a State RN job here in Orlando, and I was wondering if anyone here have worked for the State before or currently does? I was sooo shocked at how little State jobs pay, and contemplating whether I should take it or not. It pays less than my current job, but I think I will like this job better. I would love to hear some of your experiences working for the State . The program I got an offer on is Children Medical Services specifically for Foster care. Thanks all!!
