I'm confused because aren't they offering raises at your evaluation? Are you saying you will ask for more than they offer? Past couple years the nurses at my place of employment all get the same 2% raise. So I reckon that is the norm.
My daughter had short term insurance for a while, it was not expensive but after signing up she got a letter pointing out that the coverage did not meet the guideline for Obama's definition of insurance, so she will still have to pay the tax penalty!
I saw a go fund me that tops ALL the ones ya'll posted about....a Hooters girls asking for money to help pay for swimsuits, makeup, etc., for a bikini competition. She already makes GREAT money.
Yeah, that pretty much told me go fund me is one ridiculous website. Can't believe they allow such nonsense like that.
When I was in school I bought several of the "made incredibly easy" books (example: Medical Surgical Nursing Made Incredibly Easy. I felt like they helped me understand better, of course I studied the class material too, but it was a great supplement and made more sense. Also, get some classmates and study together!
I felt the same way in school, I made great grades but dreaded clinicals. I think it might be the anxiety from the responsibility of it all. Anyway, upon graduation I worked in a doctor's office, which wasn't too bad. Then worked with developmentally disabled in their homes...most states have some sort of programs for that type population. Might want to look into that?
You could look up some insurance companies and see what positions they have open. Pretty much all of them hire nurses and they are usually work from home positions. I have worked for 2 insurance companies as an RN and at both places I got all the holidays off, work M-F only, and no on call or weekends.
I work in home care case management and the "above and beyond" ones are the ones doing things for patients OFF THE CLOCK. Sorry but I work my butt off all day, most of the time working far more hours than I am paid for. I barely see my family as it is, so my off time is spent with them!
I actually had a job interview a while back where that was actually a question they asked!!! "Give an example of when you went above and beyond in your job". Uggggggghhhhhhhhh
