  1. Does anyone like working 7p-7a?

    I just returned to 12 hr NOCs after a 3 month hiatus (d/t relocation). I LOVE it. I work three and even though I am not much of a day sleeper (I usually get 4 hours) I have my schedule arranged so as not to be totally exhausted. I don't have any tro...
  2. Phasing out LPN's.

    I just left an ALF a couple days ago after only two months. I felt like every day I was squeezing my license tighter. Mgmt. was hiring people as med techs and their training was done through other "experienced" med techs . The med errors were horrif...
  3. After being called an expletive and hearing resident say they hated me,etc. and yelling at me in my office (in presence of another staff member) I calmly referred individual to my super. This person stayed right there yelling so I walked off and went...
  4. Know Anything About Hospice of the Valley?

    Anyone familiar w/HOV in particular their palliative care inpatient units? I've talked to a few nurses who do home visits w/HOV and they all talked about how much they loved their jobs and how great the company is. Just wondering if anyone else cou...
  5. What To Do About the Counteroffer?

    Once I finally get across that I'm outta there I just have this strange feeling that they will get mad and sort of make my final days there feel like a stand-off. They are very two-faced and I can only imagine the cold shoulder I'll be getting soon.
  6. What To Do About the Counteroffer?

    So...I put in my resign. notice for the worst job I've EVER had (talked about it plenty on this site) and now the counteroffer: A promo w/raise (mind you they offered this same promo w/o pay increase just last week), any schedule I want, and much mo...
  7. 8 hour vs 12 hour shifts

    I much rather prefer 12 hour shifts. I just accepted a job doing 3 12 hrs --two of which are in a row. The upside is that I will be off nearly the entire week. Since I do so much volunteer work and I'm planning to return to school this schedule wor...
  8. Have Got to Get Out of this Place!!!

    This just leaves me to wonder since I'm a newbie nurse--what's the worst nursing job you've ever had?
  9. Have Got to Get Out of this Place!!!

    UPDATE I was just offered a position on a Palliative Care Unit where I will work while I return to school soon! They are willing to be flexible as to days, etc. and to pay to help me get through school! Meanwhile, can't wait to give notice to curre...
  10. Any Info on Select Specialty Hospital?

    I'm really curious to know if anyone can give me info on what it's like to work at Select Specialty Hospitals? I know they have at least 2 locations in Phoenix. What's mgmt. like? patient ratio? etc. Any info you can provide will be appreciated. Tha...
  11. Have Got to Get Out of this Place!!!

    Well someone came forward to upper mgmt. They have basically told me that they won't go into details with me and that an investigation has been opened. All of these developments have just come about. This is a nursing home and now I'm being asked ...
  12. Have Got to Get Out of this Place!!!

    How would you like to work in a place that used Med Techs and then allows them to be unsupervised for a shift and a half --as assistant supervisor you warn your supervisor that this is dangerous and offer to come in on these shifts as needed only to ...
  13. Yessssss!! I Passed!

  14. Question about residency requirement

    Hoping someone can help...I am SERIOUSLY considering a move to AZ within the next year or so. Problem is I'm in a dilemma as to whether to stay where I am (I HATE this place!!!) and finish my RN program (I'm currently LPN looking to bridge) or move ...
  15. I need to vent...again

    Sorry guys, sort of long. As I've posted before, our class pinning ceremony is tomorrow. ALL semester, the "clique" has taken charge of the ceremony, basically done things their way. I suggested a few things and the "leader" lied and said the progr...
