    I need a nurses opinion

    thanks for all the replies, i used to live in baltimore and i know they pay really good there, now i do live near a few cities i could commute too and still have that "country living" and i know that the hospital in frederick,MD start there RN'S out at like 25 an hr, i think thats pretty good, but i do still think Nurses are definatly under paid..

    I need a nurses opinion

    Hi, i am working towards becoming an RN and i love the nursing profession and i cant imagine doing anyting else, i have been a cna for 10 yrs now, i have to be honsest though one of the main reasons why i want to be a nurse is because of the flexibility and the money, i live in pa now i am from maryland, and i have been reading the forums and i see alot of people say how under paid they are ect...I am wondering if i should rethink being an RN and maybe stay as a cna and do something else in the medical feild, i make 13.80 as a cna and 15 on the weekends, we have a thing here called surgical tech, which starts out at 16-28 and hour, has anyone heard of them and have any advice. Thanks, Michelle

    Hi i have had a feeling of phlegm in my chest and throat now for about a month or so, our insurance hasnt kicked in yet, but i have been taking a cough med to break it up, my question is everytime i make myself cough to get it out, i feel something at the bottom of my throat like try to come up but then goes back down like i am not coughing hard enough, could this congestion be due to a nasal congestion with drip that i always have, i have never been checked for allergies but i am scared of this feeling of something trying to come up then goes back down....Sorry so long..Michelle

    am i over reacting?

    Depressed about job experiences as CNA

    Dont let them get to you, we need people like you who make sure the residents are clean and turned, i too have had my fair share of problems with other cna's i have been one now for about 10 yrs, but i love nursing and there isnt anyone that is gonna keep me from it, i am starting school this semester towards my RN and i hope you get back out there because we need more people like you in this field!!!! Good Luck:nurse: Michelle

    am i over reacting?

    Hi i am sorry to post something that probably sounds so silly, but i had a 2 step ppd done about 2 months ago and it came back negative, but i did have a redness and they even said that it wasnt positive but maybe i have been exposed somewhere along the line and that was causing me to have a redness, but not raised....Well stupid question is, haha, I have had a chest congestion now for about 1 month that i cant seem to cough up and with my crazy thinking i am thinking of course that i have tb infection in my lungs!!! Am i being silly?? Thanks alot, Michelle

    can somebody please answer my question?

    thanks for your reply, one more question even though i never had reactions before is that common to start getting reactions now?:) thanks alot, Michelle

    can somebody please answer my question?

    thanks for the replies, and no it is not a hardened area just red, like someone put a quarter on my arm and lifted it and it is perfectly round and red but not raised or hard, then the redness fades away within a week. My doc didnt say anything cause i didnt go to him just the nurses.
