    12 hour shifts in public health?

    In some rural areas, Alaska for example, the PHNs travel to villages to provide their services. As one might imagine, it is hard to maintain "bankers hours" when practicing like that. I do believe that they are primarily M-F, 8-4:30 though, even her...

    Hospitals / Corporations replacing nurses with...

    The robots should replace the administrators...that would be easy...cheaper too. No big bonuses, long vacations, big salaries...the robot can do the figurin at low cost, works 24/7, doesn't need a bonus, and the $$ can be used for bedside care.

    Hospitals / Corporations replacing nurses with...

    Our corporate citizens don't care about the health of the American people...those citizens care about the capitalist laws and regulations that affect their ability to make profit. Our legislators pass laws to make the few corporate citizens happy bec...
  11. Have you read it? Are you afraid of it? The insurance lobbyists were very busy first campaigning against and then for parts of the ACA. I wouldn't depend upon them for any factual summation of the benefits to citizens.

    And what other questions do you have?

    Depends on where I am interviewing... I may ask why the position is open, or what the best parts of the workplace are, I may ask about the management style of the "boss"... I may ask about patient mix, or insurance mix, or caseload, etc dependent upo...

    Hospital policies

    If you were supposed to work that shift and sent home for low census, then yes. No, they don't have to pay you for the "oncall".

    Hospital policies

    Soon it will be legal for all of us to have the "flexibility" to work for our employers without the burden of OT, if some conservative legislators get their way...just sayin.
