    What's next after correctional nursing?

    I would like to follow this thread as I am new to correctional nursing, but I work in a hospital and we get patients from the various prisons in the region. I do plan to get a state correctional job in the future however.

    Prison nursing vs jail nursing

  5. Live and learn. It sounds like you have a good attitude so don't give up. Maybe this wasn't the right fit for you. Success is falling down seven times and getting up eight. :)

    Do you overspend on luxury items as a nurse?

    Yup! I bought a new car that was a hybrid to save on gas! Paid it off early and love it! I just closed on a little house, under 1,000 sq ft, 2 bdrms 2 bthrms. I enjoy the money I'm making. Next up going to spend my money on a degree-my daughter ...

    Lpn & asn are are being phased out.

    I graduated in 2010 with my ADN from a community college here in San Diego. The next year their LVN program was dropped. The Director of Nursing was pursuing a goal to get future students a BSN degree from that community college. She said everyone wo...

    Being called in to work extra.. ALL. THE. TIME!

    I get called all the time as well however I never answer. They usually offer doubletime if they really need nurses and that's quite a lot of the time. I will accept that every once in a while but not too much. Money isn't everything. The more yo...

    What's the weirdest thing management has said to you?

    If you are on your break then where you are does not matter as you are unavailable anyway. It's actually against the law for the hospital to require nurses to remain in the hospital on their break in event that they need to speak with the nurse. Yo...

    How in this world do you ever get 1 year experience?

    I know two hospitals in San Diego County that would hire you right now. There are also a couple of hospitals here that have a SNF attached to them where you could start out and transfer to acute care after 6 mos or a year. It's doable. Keep on kee...
