    Things I have learned in Nursing

    It's so true!!
  2. You are wise to think this now! I experienced exactly what you are worried about. I had been a nurse for 12 years before I went to a community hospital to work , where about 60% are Filipino nurses, because the hospital sponsored many Filipino nurses to immigrant to US. And per contract they should work in the hospital for 4 years before they can look for another new job in US. But many stayed there for 20 + years and a few left, then more and more are coming every year. Some of them are nice, but I had a very bad experience with two of them, they often talk in their own language to curse me or others, and they have cliques, but they don't know that I understand some of their language. But I was alone, a foreigner, from a different country, I didn't have support and energy to deal with them. I thought that the nursing job is already very stressful, I don't have to deal with so much politics, so I left the hospital. Now I am working in a different hospital, still stressful, but I feel safer!!!
  3. If you want a peaceful real good life, don't choose any of them.

    heartless DON or reality check?

    The cruel DON should be fired. She is NOT a human being. All good staff should united together to get rid of the heartless DON. Otherwise....Where is the DON working? I hope I am NOT working for her now.....

    Board of Nursing selling your data!

    I am so surprised about what the BON is doing. It is illegal to sell personal data. They should be punished according to the law!!!

    I am so happy to see your message. Have you started your pharmacy study? How is it? I just came to the Website to seek some help! Because I hate nursing!! I also thought of becoming a pharmacist. But I don't know how to start, still researching.

    New Grad RN and Cannot Find employment

    I feel the same! I got my MD RN License in May. I graduated in a foreign country 10 years ago and worked as an ICU nurse for 6 years. But I have NOT been working for almost 3 years. I have been looking for a job in many hospitals. Nowadays, less job opennings to public, and most positions are PRN. That means no salary guarantee, so I still won't be able to pay my Apt. rent if I choose a PRN job. I don't know how I can get a full time job here. I understand you completely...........

    maryland hospitals hiring new grads???

    Hi, I have followed the instructions from UMMC website, I filled the forms twice. According to the UMMC website, a nurse expert will call me back within 48 hours, but two months have pased, no one has called. Then I thought they are very busy, so I applied online, but never get any word... It's difficult! Any advice for me? Thanks in advance.

    maryland hospitals hiring new grads???

    Hi, I am new to the forum. Congratulations! I am happy to hear that you got a job in Johns Hopkins. I think the Johns Hopkins is very difficult to enter. I guess you were already a insider when you applied for the job. Because I have checked the JH website, the jobs opened to public are some PRN jobs and NP jobs. Is that right? Thanks a lot!
