    Bringing in the Boys: How to Attract More Male Nurses

    No sense delving into a conversation where people are just going to bring emotions into the fray. The studies are blatantly skewed for an agenda, but most people either have very little knowledge of statistics or didn't bother to actually read them. Not worth debating.

    Right, same thing for pushing women into male dominated fields.

    Bringing in the Boys: How to Attract More Male Nurses

    Salaries vs wages vs overall earnings Negotiation The studies I have seen are so full of holes I wonder how they even got published. I am not going to delve into this topic but it has been debunked so many times ad nauseum I grow tired of seeing it.

    Bringing in the Boys: How to Attract More Male Nurses

    I am a male nurse, there should be NO artificial push to get men into nursing just as there should be NO artificial push to get women into STEM fields. This diversity/inclusiveness BS is getting out of hand. I cringe every time I see that we "need" more female engineers or male teachers....people go where they want.

    CCNE Releases New Standards

    My school had ACEN before CCNE. From my anecdotal experience, CCNE accreditation is preferred. I suspect that if CCNE pushes this ACEN will need to bend the knee. If they don't they will unequivocally be seen as a second rate accreditation (similar to universities with only regional accreditation). Nonetheless this is huge and it makes me hopeful for things to come.
  8. Good luck, this place is saturated with NPs and med/NP/PA students.

    Why I would tell you to stay out of nursing

    Lol 23 year olds with comm degrees get paid 125k starting in Seattle when they work for Amazon/Expedia/Google. Nurses scrounge for 60k.....it's pretty much a joke. At least here.

    Thinking of giving up FNP program

    Honestly, for that low of a salary in Cali I rather have a job that is cookie cutter without much autonomy. Why have all the responsibility and scut work without decent pay? NPs wanting 100% autonomy for 135k a year (peanuts in urban parts of Cali)? Why?

    FNP Oversaturation

    I think jobs are easier to come by, yes. Once again, MOST new NPs want to live in their current area or a major metropolitan city. Especially since more NPs are young (20s), there will be constant competition for city positions.

    FNP Oversaturation

    Do you honestly think the wage reporting estimates on google search are accurate? Of course there will always be jobs in the middle of nowhere USA, but 99% of people don't want those. These new grads flooding the market are more or less expecting to work in their current area or another metro area. They are in for a rude awakening. Summary: Jobs and pay will decrease for NPs wanting to live in desirable to semi desirable areas of the US in the near future. Look at the estimated growth of the NP profession and please tell me how the salaries and quality of positions will improve. As I said in previous comment, almost 50% or more of each nursing floor you go to in a hospital has bedside RNs in NP school or strongly considering it. The faucet will cut off at some point. No one is satisfied with bed side nursing anymore and BSN schools have an obsession with degree inflation which will never rest.

    FNP Oversaturation

    As I have said before, one key solution is to raise the barrier of entry into NP schools. As of now there is literally 0 barrier besides a BSN.

    FNP Oversaturation

    I am an ACNP student, there is no working for yourself in the inpatient world obviously. There is such a flood of new grads who just feel special wearing a white coat and calling themselves a provider that they will lap up any job available. The supply is gluttonous and the salaries reflect that.

    No, not in WA

    FNP Oversaturation

    My state has 100% autonomy and I expect to be compensated for that. This is a tech haven and there are mid 20s kids with comm degrees making more than NPs at almost every tech company. 120k (capped) in a city where the average home is 750K+ is a joke. I have no idea where you live but I guarantee the cost of living isn't close to the west coast.
