    Waiting for a travel assignment

    I have 6 years of RN experience. The recruiter tells me my credentials are great, but the hospitals she's putting me in for, are not calling me.

    Waiting for a travel assignment

    No. My specialty is med/surg with surgical and orthopedic experience. I have not asked for any specific hospital. I just want to be near my family. They live in Delray beach, florida.

    Waiting for a travel assignment

    Hello fellow nurses. I need to know how long do I wait for a travel company to find me an assignment. It has been almost 4 weeks. Do I tell them to forget about it, and just find a job when I get there? I feel my recruiter is trying her best, but I need to start working. Any advice would help.

    NIGHT SHIFT CENTRAL!

    I agree with everyone's comment about night shift, so far. I have this feeling of a general disregard for night shift people, and the fact that we work just as hard as day shift. We catch a lot of mistakes, too. People in the hospital don't all sleep.

    Please i need help and suggestion..

    since we are the topic of licensing. Can a RN hold licenses in different states without losing the license they have currently. My husband and I want to move to Idaho, and I want to start the process now. any information would be good.

    To become an OR Nurse...

    I have my BSN. My goal is to be in the OR. But, everyone seems to tell me that a CCRN, is what I need first, then do a little time in the ICU. Right now, I am on a med-tele floor. I have been nursing for 3 years. Are these the right steps to take. I am looking for a CCRN course, any suggestions?

    How did you find a job as a new grad?

    Have you tried looking at rural hospitals. Nevada has quite a few. I am from one. Mount grant general hosptial, in hawthorne, nevada. We hire new grads. Its a small hospital, but it is not overwhelming, like a big hospital can be. Mount grant is a great place to sharpen your skills, in the event that you want to go to a bigger hospital later on. That seems to be a pattern with the new grads. They get their year in, then go to another hospital. Think about a rural hospital.

    New grad taking ACLS course??

    Dont freak out. Go in with an open mind. Your taking the class to learn. I had to take the acls class in order to work the er. I just got my license in 12/2010. I was nervous. It will be quite informative. Hopefully, you will get a acls book to review. Good luck. If you fail, well take it again.

    Average IQ of a BSN nurse

    This has nothing to do with iq level. Nursing is how well you communicate, asking pertinent questions, being a good team player, and being flexible. If you have all these, or learn these skills, you will go far.

    Cross Country??

    WHAT QUESTIONS DO YOU ASK A RECRUITER? I KNOW THAT YOU ASK ABOUT LENGTH OF ASSIGN., HOUSING, DEPT., HOSPITAL, CAN I ASK RIGHT A WAY ABOUT SALARY? ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT.

    Cross Country??

    I applied with cross country, and recieved a call the next morning. The hr lady, amy, seems very personable. This will be my first travel assignment. By the way, will the pay rate of an rn with a bachelor's, be more than a rn with an associates, when you travel? Just curious.

    My Student is draining me.....

    This is too bad. He already has a bad attitude. Is he doing this for the money, i wonder.

    What are the expectations of a new grad

    I have been an LPN for 4 years, but just got my RN license on 12/23/2010. More responsibilities on my part. I work with a RN who does not like his job, and is not a team player. This is very frustrating, because it is just myself and him, running our acute floor. I have found it much easier to talk with our ER doctor, in a way of asking advice, and it has worked out for me. He is the same ER doctor every weekend. so, this is a unique situation. I have told my DON about my co-worker. She is planning to change my schedule. I have felt overwhelmed at times. But, i always tell myself to calm down, maybe go get a drink of water. Communicate with your fellow nurses, even if they dont want to hear it. I am sure they can remember when they were a newbie. I hope this helps.

    Sleeping on the job

    you can't be resposible for your patients, as well as, hers. If you keep doing things for her, she will expect it, like a spoiled child. let your superviser know. I have a nurse who is like this. when she gives report, she sounds like she has done everything for her patients. she takes credit. this is not good. If she is unable to do the functions of her job, maybe she needs a new job.
