    New RNs making more than experienced RNs

    That is a ridiculously low pay rate for an experienced RN. Unreal.

    Nurses calling POA to notify

    As a nurse and family member I would just be happy you kept them safe, and I would just ask about circumstances when I visited and saw it.
  3. Reading this I thought no way can this be true, but then I saw you had written it and you have been around here for eons and are very credible. At the very least this girl is incredibly shallow and immature. At the very least. She has no insight and twists reality to her own means. You would definitely be doing the wrong thing by writing any letter for her. I think she needs help. Mental health counseling at the very least although that will not happen I am sure. Sure hope she doesn't kill someone some day. You are being incredibly kind and forgiving, but I am not sure that is what is needed here. Has she learned anything from almost killing you? I don't think so.

    Is my (50K) BSN worthless?

    Public Health Nursing?

    Nurse bringing child to work

    Seems like a no win situation for all. As others said there should be some childcare available. Can't leave them home alone, can't call in or be fired eventually. Not everyone has family or friends available. Tough situation.

    $200,000 salary as a RN, it's true

    Dang. I make so little compared to that. Yikes. I am kind of reeling.

    pre op jitters

    I had major surgery in February and it was really nice having my husband with me in Pre-op. They did shave my groin as that was accessed during surgery. There was nothing for the nurses to be uncomfortable about and they weren't. I hope you can find a way to become comfortable with these things. Patients need their support person.
  8. I don't know. That all makes legal sense 10G, but she was doing her best to do her job and got horribly injured in that process. Seems like she should have been paid until she was physically cleared to resume her duties.

    Who Did NOT Do a Year of Med Surg?

    Clinic and research nursing for 26 years now. It is possible. Never worked acute care as never wanted to.

    Expelled from RN program, looking for options

    Get the help with the anxiety and then return. It will pay off big time in all aspects of your life. I didn't even start nursing school until I was 27 by the way.
  11. This is just a tragedy for baby and parents plain and simple. Change in habits and distraction allow these things to happen. I am sure she would give anything to have that day back and change things. I have nothing but sympathy for her.

    Anyone else regret becoming a nurse?

    Keep looking for outpatient jobs. Sell yourself at the interview. I never wanted to do acute care after being a monitor tech and unit secretary prior to nursing school. You can make it work. There are jobs out there.
  13. I wonder who paid for these studies and who conducted them. I wish those same people would spend their time and energy advocating for better staffing levels which I think (guessing) would improve outcomes much more than making everyone become a BSN.

    Insulting pay raise

    What will you do with all that money lol. Time to look for other opportunities.
