  1. question about infant star

    I know what it stands for but what do they actually mean MAP Hertz Amplitude I thought closed line suctioning is not good with HFV due to air trapping but I read a thread that this is the norm. Thanks
  2. We make as much as maids

    I just have to vent. I have been interviewing for a cleaning woman and would you believe many of them asked for $20/hr!! That's cash by the way! I am so angry that many nurses are making the same hourly salary as a maid and WHY WHY WHY are more nu...
  3. Chicago Nurses

    I am starting to consider working for an agency and I would like some input as to which one you work for and if you would recommend it. I appreciate your thoughts since there are so many to choose from. One that offers insurance would be great. Are t...
  4. I just read that hotel maids in New York make $18/hour. That is what many nurses in this country make. I agree with the previous post that we are creating our own shortage in many ways. Unfortunately, nurses do not seem to able able to stand togethe...
  5. Nurse Entrepreneurs

    I've had so many dreams. The part that is scary is everything looks better from a dream until you're into it and realize you don't know what you are doing or what you've gotten yourself into. The first step is scary b/c knowing where to begin is ha...
  6. Nurse Entrepreneurs

    Everyday I dream of owning my own business and constantly try to develop an idea. I have some ideas, but I can tell you why myself and many nurses do not take the first step.... we do not know where to begin. Our education trains us to be employees ...
  7. What's nursing like?

    If you want honesty, then I'll tell you my opinion. First of all, I do love pt care which is why i stay. It can be rewarding at times, that much is true. BUT I personally would not rec. this profession to anyone anymore. It is high stress, esp in...
  8. "Nursing Shortage" The real Solution

    To RN from Philly: $40,000/year after taxes is really only about $25,000 per year. I take home $2000-2300 per month. I live paycheck to paycheck and can barely afford my rent, car and bills.Thank goodness I don't have a child to support. It kills...
  9. Why are there NO posts to this forum?

    CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN WHAT A C-CORP AND S CORP IS? I DON'T KNOW IF I'LL EVER BE ABLE TO START MY DREAM OF MY OWN BUSINESS B/C I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THESE TYPES OF THINGS! WHERE DOES ONE BEGIN?
  10. Can you tell me more about the one in Chicago?
  11. If you could do anything in nursing

    I would take nursing to a whole new level. Independent contracting and entrepreneur type practice would be my dream. I would love to own an organization that promotes nursing so we are viewed as educated professionals and not "wpmen's work".
  12. I work at a children's hospital in Chicago and they just sent out a notice saying that new grads would start at around $20 per hour. This is close to what I make and I have been there for five years!!! Not to mention that the rumor is they will adj...
  13. think outside of the box

    Thanks for the encouragement. I know so many nurses who want to leave the b/s but are afraid to be truly independent. Someday I would love to teach a course in RN school to get nurses to THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. Even if we could start out with som...
  14. think outside of the box

    I would like to try international nursing someday, but right now with small children that is not an option. I was actually thinking more of the administrative side. Places like WHO, Red Cross and CDC must need nursing knowledge. I searched their w...
  15. Private Duty on my own

    How much does the MD/lab office charge you for supplies? How many years of nursing experience do you have? Did you need a business license to do this or did you just market yourself?
