    Let's talk bonuses

    I'm a new grad just getting ready to negotiate bonuses. 30% or more of my practice is cash based services and the rest is billable by insurance. How would you want your bonuses structured? Two bonuses.... one for production and one on cash services? ...

    Reported to the BON

    As a new NP this is such an eye opener to me and I thank you for this post. I never thought about needing my own malpractice insurance as my company provided a policy. I will now be looking into my own policy. I thank you again.

    Asthma issues and sending kids home....

    I agree with Flare. If the kid is in distress and the parent refuses to take them home then I would tell the parent that it is fine I will just call 911 and she can pick him up from the ER (and have a bill to pay). I am sure that would work but I hav...

    Letter for parents

    Wow I wish we had a memo like that, especially for our frequent fliers

    Do you enjoy being a school nurse?

    Exactly how I feel....very well said. I love my job and have only gone home 1 day exhausted this school year. I feel that I have made the best choice for me and my family!
  12. I think my biggest adjustments had to do with the lower pay and being on salary too, but then I think I have holiday breaks and summer off so am I really making that much less considering I will be getting paid when not physically at work? The parent...

    Is this what night shift really does to us?

    I feel your pain. I worked strictly nights for three years. I felt like a zombie every single day....unless I scheduled myself for like 6 days off in a row. My health went downhill, I was moody, irritated and no fun for my family. I got depressed too...

    Is your workplace haunted?

    We were just talking about this today. I work in an old elementary school and our security system guy was there fixing one of our cameras. He told us that last week one of our new high schools burgular alarm went off at 2 and 3am on a Saturday. He an...
