    ST. Rose ICU pay rate

    That isn't the correct link to St. Rose Domincan Hospitals, Dignity Health, in Southern Nevada. The local St. Rose hospitals do contribute and match to their employees 403 (b) plans.

    Las Vegas L&D Salary at different hospitals

    Valley Health System doesn't even crack $40/hr for 5 years of experience, let alone 3. Just an FYI.
  3. You won't be excluded with your ADN. They will likely have you sign a "will complete BSN within X amount of years". Which you're already going to have going. Apply for Intermountain Healthcare's mom/baby new grad programs. They are the dominant hospital system in the state that will make maternal/fetal the highest probability for you. Also apply at U of U.

    Where to go after the ICU?

    Be prepared to feel like a new grad again for some of it and be willing to take call! Brush up on everything cardiac. It was a steep learning curve but absolutely worth it. Doing stemis and heart caths, pacemakers is amazing. I can’t imagine ever going back to ICU

    new grad- cath lab interview help

    It is highly unusual to have a Cath lab consider a new grad RN. Awesome opportunity to interview. I would brush up on rythym recognition. And think about if you can handle being on-call a lot of the time. It's required. Good luck on your interview. If hired, the learning curve is very steep but you can succeed.

    Where to go after the ICU?

    5 years of ICU here.... switched to Interventional Radiology and Cath Lab. Never looking back. Perks are way better. Literally everything is better. So glad I did it.

    allnurses has Become so Politicized

    Joined in 2013. Site and topics were much more enjoyable back then. Fun contributors and interesting topics galore. Those posters have been driven off now. I avoid most threads here due to many already stated reasons. Wish the old AN would come back. Not likely.
  8. It doesn't count. You aren't an independent ICU nurse if you're in a residency program. How could that be counted-

    Best resources for learning Spanish

    I use DuoLingo each day. It’s a free app. I know enough to get by and keep learning. You could download it and try it out perhaps. it has helped me communicate with Spanish speaking patients and families.

    Sacramento RN's

    Hi, are there any Sacramento area based RN's here? I am interested in talking to anyone that works in any of the hospitals in this region. Considering relocation. Wanted to possibly PM whoever is available.

    Websites that offer housing for travel nurses? Bay Area?

    By the way, I have gotten to experience firsthand the importance of the relationship you have with your recruiter. I've read that from you many times here and realize the difference it makes. My recruiter right now is a relatively hands off in my opinion and seems somewhat impatient during phone calls, while the other staff from company have been helpful. Will switch recruiters if I take a future assignment with company.

    Websites that offer housing for travel nurses? Bay Area?

    Thank you. On day 4 of symptoms at the moment. I'm young but it's been a rough go nonetheless. Filing workers comp. tomorrow. What do you mean by my immune status would allow better pay as a traveler in the next year? My agency is giving me my weekly guarantee and offered to provide housing still (if I wasn't taking the AACN deal), which I am grateful for. They've been helpful for the most part. I recall you mentioning MSSI in the past. They only serve the state of Wisconsin?

    How much weekly pay should I aim for?

    You must currently be in a fantastic position, then. I’m doing a $5400/week covid assignment at the moment. That’s with housing stipend added on and I take free housing provided by the AACN.

    Consequences of Loneliness

    This was very sobering and thought provoking for me. Thank you for sharing. I have heard that instagram and other forms of “social” media can also create feelings of loneliness and may be bad for health. I avoid most social media other than this website. I liked your suggestion on the benefit that a pet can add and caring for plants. Thank you for the article.

    Quality of Life as a nurse by state

    Not on your original list, but close to So. Cal - you can easily make > 100K/year as a RN in Las Vegas, NV. And there’s no state income tax, another win. Proximity to fly fishing areas for hubby.
