Im interested in becoming a house supervisor and in the middle of getting my BSN. But Im wondering what other experience I would need? Also, the national average pay for house supervisors is $94,000. Is this accurate?? Thanks:)
I have an AD degree and i got a job in outpatient dialysis. BUT i am doing my bachelors degree online currently and that was on my resume. Our facility is requiring us to get BSN within 5 years of hire.
This recent article from the Atlantic discusses the looming nursing shortage:
Five years ago, my mother was rushed to the hospital for an aneurysm. For the next two weeks, my family and I sat huddled around her bed in the intensive-care unit, oscillating between panic, fear, uncertainty, and exhaustion.
I have started as a dialysis RN about 9 weeks ago and ive been stressed from the start. Im working full time and going to school part time. Im tired all the time, and i feel so rushed at work most days. Is this a "welcome to the rest of your life" ? Will it get easier?

I understand where u are coming from, i left my home care position after being there for 5 months. It was a deadend job, I was basically babysitting my patient. Currently orientating in a dialysis unit and so far i really like it. My preceptor moves REALLY fast and expects me to do the same but i would rather do it slow and be thorough and correct vs working fast being sloppy and making major mistakes. Do what makes you happy!

Like a previous poster said, ur manager already increased u one shift and u accepted so i dont think you are obligated to work extra shifts. I will throw in an extra if someone calls in sick but other than that i dont. Im finishing my BSN as well. Taking 2 classes at a time.
