    Thank you for your response. If I listed my BFA, why would you suggest it be written first? I see that the article states the non-nursing degree be written first, but I'm curious if you have any ideas as to why. In the instance written, the person is...

    Advice Please :)

    @MBNurse123 I just moved from the Baltimore area to Durham. I was able to interview at Duke, UNC Chapel Hill, UNC Rex, and WakeMed. Interviewing is extra strange right now and took a little longer than expected. All of my interviews were either just ...

    Resignation Question

    Just wanted to follow up - I ended up being paid my scheduled hours while not working for over 2 weeks. It’s pretty amazing to me. I don’t think I accrued any PTO along with those hours but I don’t care much about that (our PTO accrual is crap anyway...

    Resignation Question

    I’ll def follow up next week. Honestly don’t have much PTO and it’s only paid out at 50% so I’m more interested in my expected pay. I have written documentation from my manager clearly stating I will be paid my regular hours up until my chosen resign...

    Resignation Question

    Thanks. I think I’ll feel a lot more secure once I’m actually paid as expected next week. The coworkers I’m referring to extended their 4 week expectation to adhere to the policy, but the policy also states employees can call out sick during that tim...

    Duke vs UNC vs UNC Rex

    I want to start off by saying sorry for yet another post about the Triangle area. I'm moving from out of state and due to COVID the hiring process has been remote/interviews via zoom which has made things pretty stressful. I've never even been to the...

    Duke employment, commute, etc

    @mmc51264 My boyfriend is moving with me and I think overall we'd rather pay more for a nice downtown apartment than pay less and commute to pay for closer parking. We are both moving from a bigger city environment so we'd like to be in a more active...

    Duke employment, commute, etc

    Hello, I was just hired at Duke Hospital in Durham and I’m starting at the end of Summer. I was hoping to get some insight on a few things. Due to Covid, the orientation is now virtual, so I won’t have many opportunities to ask someone in person. I’...
