    Please Need HELP Just started new job & found out < $1.50 hour

    It's hard to know what to do 'after the fact'. I would probably leave it alone and ask about a pay raise (without mentioning co-workers' wages) at a job review. I wish I had thought to ask around in general about wages before I got hired at my first...
  2. Stargazer, sorry, I realize that I never answered your question. My daughter did not have meningitis. She had chicken pox. She had had it when she was 10 months old, and when she was ten years old she broke out in a mild rash after being exposed to a...
  3. In the poll choices for 'yes', it states this: "Yes - The religious beliefs of company owners take precedence over their employees' right to have access to birth control." This above statement, as far as Hobby Lobby goes, isn't exactly correct. It...
  4. Thank you - I wasn't sure how to delete one of them...
  5. I just got my first job as an RN. It is all overnights, including many 12 hour shifts. I will rotate 3 nights one week, 4 the next, averaging about 30 hours a week. I start training in a couple of days, from 2300 to 0700. I am wondering if anyone can...

    Seven years ago my 16 year old traveled to a larger city for the weekend and then came down with whooping cough about a week and a half later. Except that we didn't know it was whooping cough - we thought it was just a bad cold with the worst cough h...

    Nurses with Medical Marijuana Cards.

    "I love my cat" - terminated for napping in your car on your own break? What? If you ask me, a power nap could do wonders for making a safer, less sleepy nurse.

    I'm sorry, ThirdGen, that it took me so long to get back to you. I haven't been on in a while. The shoes I use and love are Saucony Women's Grid Omni Walking Shoe in white. [h=1][/h]

    Critique of Nursing School

    I graduated from an ADN program in Minnesota last year, at the age of 48, so I am not looking at college as a young, fresh adult. It took me two years to get through the pre-reqs for my ADN program because I could only go half-time. I don't have to t...

    Nursing Student Shoes for Talls?

    I am 5'9" which is tall enough that I don't like to add extra height either. I also have plantar fasciitis so good arch support is a must for me. I did find a pair of white shoes that I love. Although they add about an inch in height, I found this ac...
  13. SeattleJess, I honestly don't know if this hospital would have the culture of retaliation or blacklisting - I just didn't want to take a chance. I highly doubt that ALL of their facilities would, but I still want to be careful. I felt much better jus...

    Congratulations! That is wonderful, and I am so happy for you!
  15. jadelpn, I was in the room with her the entire time. I have read a lot of good advice on here - especially liked the comment from nurse156 about the mama bear instinct running deep. Haha - that is so true! I think I will wait until my daughter recove...
