  1. I want to go back to school but I can't justify the cost since I am still paying on my loans. But, if I wait, the degree won't have much of a return on investment.
  2. University of North Georgia

    Did you end up doing the program? I am considering the post-masters FNP. It's been an endless game of phone tag thus far.
  3. Northside is "known" to be the best for birthing babies in the ATl area, has been for many years known as the maternity hospital. Id start looking into that place first. Not my specialty though.
  4. WGU vs Aspen University

    Aspen is Nationally accredited but NOT regionally accredited. This will matter kater if you want to pursue your education further. WGU is both. I enjoyed the RN- BSN at WGU and felt I got a lot out of it, but I also did my MSN there and did not love ...
  5. Unemployment/ PRN nurses

    Does a PRN nurse qualify for unemployment? Cant find anything on the unemployment site about this. My facility just cancelled all elective surgeries per the CDC guidelines and put the OR/Periop/Pacu/PST staff out for at least 45 more days. They were...
  6. Alarming conditions of a job offer letter

    Bait and switch! Trust your gut, there is a reason you are having doubts. Clarify in writing.
  7. I quit

    Ask if you can go PRN on your unit. Keep your foot in the door but work way less.
  8. Post Masters FNP after WGU

    Which others were you accepted to?
  9. Please Help

    Be there to catch her when she falls. This job isn't a good fit and the end is near. Prob better for her to go somewhere that doesn't make her so miserable. There are plenty of other jobs in nursing that would be very different and she will be afraid...
  10. Do you think I can get my job back?

    Do you even want to work with that lady? She sounds dreadful. Do you have colleagues you can use as a reference? Is there an HR or corporate you can contact, in writing, to clear your name? I wouldn't want to go back but Id want a good reference and ...
  11. Thoughts?

    The only way to spark change would be for multiple people to write written complaints about this providers behavior. It has to be a pattern. So if it is just you that has an issue they will blame you. If they get multiple complaints from nurses about...
  12. Nurses secretive about getting another job

    Maybe she just kept it from you. Why are you so interested? I'd just stay out of it. No good can come from this kind of gossip. Keep in mind, if they gossip with you, they are probably also gossiping about you.
  13. Is it worth it?

    I don’t disagree completely and jobs vary greatly. There are plenty of terrible places to work, I recently stumbled into one. But there are still decent jobs to be had. They are harder to find. And I really feel like who you work with and how you sup...
  14. Is it worth it?

    Be the change you want to see in nursing. I try to be the nurse I needed when I was new. It’s a hard job full of stress. It’s the culture of the unit that makes or breaks you. It’s not easy, especially when new. But we all got through it. You can...
  15. What now?

    Go back to work. Keep your head down. It takes time to gain trust. Don’t let one incident ruin you. The other employees probably know this doctor is an *** if it’s true. Start looking for another job on the DL. It’s easier to find one when you h...
  16. Secretly breaking contract

    It has nothing to do with honesty. It’s none of your business. Getting in other’s business is not a good quality when you work on the floor. Stay out of the drama and mind your own. I promise you’ll get much farther.
  17. What would you do

    I accepted a job that was supposed to be 4 days a week. Now that I have started I am told it will be 5 days a week with prime rush hour commute times. Not what I agreed to. Leadership doesn't care, just said it is what it is. I got very bad vibes dis...
  18. What would you do

    Should I say that or just not mention?
  19. What would you do

    Ok guys, I’ve got past the phone interview and now am planning for in person interview. The potential job email is asking me for my current employer and if they can contact. (No!) Do I tell the truth and let them know I just took this job and already...
  20. Looking up patients on Facebook

    Meh. So many bigger fish to fry. Who has time for that anyway?
  21. Is this even Legal?

    This is a terrible situation to be put in. I am not a call out person, but there is no way you can take this assignment. Is it a hospital? What type of facility? Go up the chain of command and put it all in writing ahead of time. They need to fix it ...
  22. Which would you choose and why? Anyone have any positive or negative feedback on these shifts? I'm torn between being home for dinner everyday with my family, or having a whole day off. I'm leaning toward doing the four days with 10s. I've done 12 h...
  23. California Endorsement purgatory

    If it isn't too far for you to go in person, I would say worth a shot. The worst they can say is no.
  24. California Endorsement purgatory

    I deeply regret mailing it. I got every single part of the app together and mailed it overnight per their instructions. They got it 9/27. They still have not opened it or cashed the check. According to their website and processing times based on the ...
  25. california license by endorsement

    You started after me and are already passing me! lol I deeply regret mailing in the paper app. I should have done online. I was concerned about all the pieces getting there online.
