    Anyone work as a Independent Contractor RN?

    Hopefully not, it's just a PRN position so I'm probably going to be working 3 or 4 times a month so it's extra money that's always welcome in my wallet
  2. Hello!! 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?

    Pay off loans, NP school, or specialty certificate?

    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?

    Pay off loans, NP school, or specialty certificate?

    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

    HPSA Score for HRSA?

    The second link. Just put in the hospital address and look at the score. I'm not sure about the mental health score. You should ask your representative to see if you can work there

    Pay off loans, NP school, or specialty certificate?

    I was wondering about that too. NPs in city areas are plenty plus more paying dues...
  9. Hello everybody. 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?
  10. Hello All 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?

    Bedside pay vs research pay

    That isn't too bad of a difference

    Bedside pay vs research pay

    Not so good? Hmm, so if I was paid say 24 dollars in Texas then would I be paid like 15?

    Bedside pay vs research pay

    Hey everybody, 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? Thanks~~
