  1. What Is a WOW Program??

    I get $30 hr for any time between 7P Fri and 7A on Mon. Full bennies. Must work 24 hours and commit to 49 weekends a year and call off no more than 36 hours scheduled time or get thrown off the program. I don't get a shift bonus if it is on the we...
  2. What is the status of this bill? Thanks!
  3. Mandatory overtime

    I thought I saw a thread here that stated Pa may ban MO with the bill being in the senate now, and has passed in the house. My question is how have hospitals in other states that ban MO been able to staff. This question came up at work last nights ...
  4. Couldn't tell who was a doctor or nurse!

    I'm not sure, but I think that the blend of staff that is dressed the same saves the hospital money-If certain attire was dictated by the faciltiy, they would be required to pay for it. So, scrubs that the nurses purchase themselves save the hospita...
  5. I don't fit into nursing& nurse eating

    I do agree that this is not unique to nursing. I do know however, that I am not suited to workiing in this type of environment. I still dream of a lingerie shop and being my own boss. Thanks for all the support.

  13. Foot care training

    I don't have a computer at my new house and I ask your understanding in answering my question, as this is a long thread and it may have already been answered. My professional and personal lives are currently in disarray, and my time is very limited....
