    Wage/salary

    Hope this is the appropriate place for this, if not sorry. Do experienced RN negotiate wage/salary in a hospital setting? Anyone know how compensation or HR office works when it comes to calculating how much to offer? It'll be 2 years(come jan) of working as a RN in a med-surg floor at a trauma hospital. I got offered a position in IMCU and would begin jan. I'm expecting more because of the hospital I worked at provides so much experience and of course now working at IMCU. But I'm not sure what the general pay is for this sort of thing. Any advice will be great. Thank you

  3. Take a month break and the following month afterwards stick to ONE resources and just study review Also, it will greatly help if you review your score report (not sure if they have one for pan, but we had it for nclex) Best wishes!!

    ATI for Nclex-RN

    Hi all, can anyone please tell me about their experience of using ATI to prepare for Nclex-RN...? I'm planning to use it for content. We were given all of ATI's books when we started nursing school, and I'm trying to utilize the resources I have rather than spending money. The books are from 2 years ago. background info- I have used hurst and saunders previously I haven't decided what I'll use to practice questions, except pda which I have kept after using it from my previous attempt. If anything comes to mind for a great question bank resource, please do let me know. Thank you and happy holidays!

    Scheduled Boards (Again) ADVICE!

    How long have you been preparing for the exam? If you don't feel ready or haven't spent much time to work hard in your weak areas you may need to reschedule for a further date. What I'm doing differently is looking at each category to see what exactly that section covers. It has clarified my studying very much by doing this. Good luck!

    Passed with Few Sata

    Did you have exhibit, ekg, med cal, drop/drag questions?

    anything you can offer

    Thank you! Mialamia! I will be reviewing content again. What I can't make sense out of is that when I do med surg questions (saunders which I used previously after going over the book) is that I do so well not getting all correct but I do so well than when I answer questions from ncbsn or other sources. And i go in to take the exam and my score is near pass for physiological and other areas that cover content materials. ...I really don't know anymore what is happening between me and content. But I will cover content again!! For sure thank you! Any other helpful things you come across, please let me know. Also about the cram book, which is it? Author? Ed?

    anything you can offer

    Thank you both for your responses! ! Do you suggest I review my content in all area or just the area I'm scoring below on?

    anything you can offer

    First, I would like to wish everyone a happy thanksgiving! We all have people and life moments to be so grateful for. Secondly, I wanted to see if I may receive some help (tips, recommendations, etc) I am a retaker, and honestly it's difficult to figure out what to study after a couple of attempts. what I've used before: hurst, ati, pda, saunders, Kaplan strategy, ncbsn, lippincott's alternate-format, online nclex questions, ...that's all I can recall at the moment. I don't know what other resource to use anymore. And the ones I can think of or have been suggested are so pricey. I'm seriously starting to think I have testing issues because I do well when I practice and I get to taking the exam and I don't follow through like I do when practing. I have analyzed my CPR report and my below passing are management of care, safety and infection control, & psychosocial (this is the worst!). The rest all near pass. I don't know how to prepare for next time I retake again,. I don't know what resources to use, cause I really can not afford expensive stuff right now or anytime soon. I've done so many questions, so it's not about the amount of questions I've done. In school, I have remained at a B with an A here and there but majority are Bs no C. A big part of me feels that I rush when answering questions. Like I rush so much at times I don't see key things (child age, home care, etc the key things that helps select the best answer from the correct answer). And I've worked to correct this problem. Or maybe I don't know my contents enough, I really don't know anymore. Help please
