I'm about to accept a RN side job at a nearby Clinic and it looks like they are hiring me as a independent contractor.
Anything I should keep in mind professionally as a independent contractor?
Also, I heard that I will have more complicated taxes during tax season. Anybody have any experience?
I've been trying to figure that out for a while now but I can't figure out how it works. As in, should I claim 6 or 7 and guess (calculate) how much will be taken out of my paycheck and deposit it into a high yield interest account?
Depends on what certification. For me, I was looking into a wound care program which costs around 7k and there are other certification classes that have that high tuition. Of course, something like a Med Surg cert will cost only 400 dollars but I want to become certified in something where i might be able to expand my career
If you have 7k, from say, tax returns, would you use it to
-Pay off part of your 30k student loan
-get a specialty certificate such as WOCN
-Apply and enroll in NP school around 25k
What would you do?
I have the question from the cheap seats, I'm enrolling in a WOCN course for late spring/early summer and I'm hoping to get a job as a wound care nurse something by fall (hoping!!)
My question is that if I take the WOCN course, do I immediately have to sit for the WOCNCB exam? Or is it one of those things where I work as a WOCN first and then sit for it after a couple of years of experience?
I'm thinking about getting into research as a nurse but I can't seem to find any concrete information on salary and how it compares to bedside.
So I wanted to ask everybody, how does your research salary compare to when you worked bedside?
