    What does it mean it was hard to get your billing? Wouldn't a lower caseload be a good thing? Sorry I've never actually worked case management before so I'm still learning what it all entails. Were you by any chance in the Phoenix area? I was going to PM you but it says I am unable to until I have 15 topics... I am going to have to decide soon if I get offered this job and/or another case management position with a hospice company so I'm trying to learn all I can. I also interviewed for a hospice admissions position. Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I was hoping to see some responses because I was wondering this as well. Do you currently work for Aetna?

    I am curious because I have a phone interview today. What are the differences that you noticed between you and your best friends positions? Are you still working there and happy?

    Tips for Hospice RN interview.

    So how has the transition been so far? I'm getting ready to interview for a Hospice RN admissions position after doing med/surge, ICU and ER nursing for the last 8 years.

    Just came across your post looking for info on a job with CVS. So which job did you end up going with? And how do you like it?

    Have you been working with HOV all these years? I'm looking to switch from ER to hospice and came across your post. I would be interested to hear your experience.

    Adjusting to Nights in the ER

    I work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. On Thursday night I will stay up until 11 or 12 a.m. and then sleep until my kids get up, usually between 0430-0600. Then I take a 3-4 hour nap on Friday. Monday I go to bed usually by 10 a.m. wake up at 4 p.m. and then head back to bed whenever else does around 9 to switch back to days for the week. This works for me right now because I don't want our baby in daycare yet. I do crossfit 3 days a week (Tues, Wed, Thurs) and I want to add some yoga, pilates, or running before work but that hasn't happened yet. For snacks I eat fruit, cheese sticks, veggies, meat roll ups, chicken legs, hard boiled eggs, nuts, and Lara bars. I eat Paleo so most of my stuff consists of leftovers that are quick to grab out the door.
  9. I found out I was pregnant 2 weeks after I got accepted into our nursing program! (Now my daughter is 19 months.) Though my clinicals were different being only once a week, but still 12hours and I had 3 days of classes I was able to get it done. It really wasn't that much of a pain, I just had to get really good shoes to wear. I wasn't due until after finals and she ended up coming 5 weeks early so I missed 2 weeks of school because she was in the NICU for 8 days, but my instructors worked with me and I was able to make everything up that I missed (except the final which I took on time) during the break, including clinical hours. I went right back the next semester and just graduated in May, so I think you can do it!
