    Since you been at your job for a year now, most hospitals are giving 2%-3% pay raises. I figure .50-.75 the most!

    Burned Out.

    Don't lose hope and i'm sure you will find a Nursing job real soon. BTW, there are crime everywhere not just Chicago???????????????
  8. THis pay is not right new grad RN's in chicago is making at least 25 an hour at the bare minimum. Most or making 26-28 an hour with the latter being 30 in some suburbs where it is hard to keep nurses. Just got to keep looking. Even in the suburbs, nurses are having a hard time finding work due to the economy. So your last statement isn't true

    Hello, I took Math 125 because I knew you need this to get into any BSN program in the future. I took Math 140 a long time ago but it didn't count because it was 5 yrs old

    Nurse Acuity Bill vs Staffing ratios

    I heard California passed a bill that Nurses to patient ratio cannot be more than 6:1, Is this true? If this is true, I wish IL would do the same. At my facility, if we have less than 18 patients on our floor, I am the only nurse! Management do not consider admissions, acuity, d/c, codes, answering phones, charting, orders, etc in factoring how stressful my job is!

    Continuing Education credits

    Ok, let me understand this. If the renew license notification goes out May of 2010. Does anyone know how much time they will give us to get our 20 continuing education credits? Also, I obtained 20 ceu's in the year 2007-2008 when I was in Nursing school, does this count towards me fulling my ceu's commitment for 2010

    Olive Harvey College....

    I went to Olive-Harvey from 2006-2008 and they were accredited. The lab is always open for the most part since we have 2 lab nurses on the spot. If the lab wasn't open, we could ask someone from the nursing office to open the doors for us Olive-Harvey wasn't as bad as people said on this site. Every school has it's ups and downs, no school is perfect
