    Nursing is pathetic...

    Hey nurse dude, why didn't you become a plumber ? instead of complaining get out and do something to change your situation. i have been an RN for 20yrs, it's not about the money maybee that's your problem. i currently make $26./hr + shift diff etc. and am looking forward to a raise. i am also looking forward to going into a crna program. get out of pt care ! increase your education and climb the ladder you have to make the effort to change.
  2. After 22 yrs in nsg i can still say i love my job. i work in an acute care area pacu, the work is fast paced and challenging. i enjoy the high tech environment. i work nights and try to stay out of the politics. i'm maxed out at $25./hr +diff, this is considered excellent pay for the area.

    Home Health Care Nursing Notes Efficiency

    I am new to home health however I have dictated reports in the hospital setting and prefer it. It would be much faster to dictate reports rather than filling out foolish forms also I would not have forms to return to the office. It's a good idea.

    getting started in w/ nursing career

    Don't waste you're time getting an LPN, there are few jobs and credits will not be transferable to an RN program. Go to an RN associate program 2yrs.
