    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

    University of Cincinnati FNP fall 2013 anyone???

    Thanks for the information! About your comment on the books, how dI'd you manage to get your readings done without buying "most of the books"? Did you mean you didn't buy the book but found an online book to use?

    ACNP

    I say at least a year. My personal opinion of course, but I honestly feel that it's vital to have a RN experience before moving forward in one's career. And I know the first year as a RN comes with so much that enables one to really get a feel for what being a RN is and just have an understanding of our scope of practice.

    I have considered mac but it's so expensive :/ Anything apple related is expensive, really. Still haven't decided...

    Tablet vs laptop

    A little off topic but thought I take a chance and ask- what worked best for you and why, tablet or laptop while in grad school? If tablet- which best, in your opinion, accommodated your school work?

    Thanks!! Those are grear tips. I was thinking about holding off till end of first semester to find a preceptor. We start clinical in 2nd year- didn't think finding a preceptor a year in advance was necessary or am I wrong?? :/ I was thinking of lining up preceptors in January or during winterm break.

    Continue to enjoy your summer break! How exciting being almost done! Thanks for the site on where to get books, I'll look into it. I'm currently looking into buying a tablet vs a laptop- any recommendations?

    That is definitely a must! What helps me stay organized is buying those big table calendars and filling them in for the entire term with important dates once I get my syllabus and update as I go along. Hope that helps :)

    My school program is odd, some terms are part time and others full time- speaking of credits per term. I'll be working full time for the 1st year and will reevaluate how it worked out for me the 1st year and put into consideration what second year will be like, ex clinical hours and decide then whether or not I'll remain in my full time position for work. I've been looking up tips of NP survival 🤔😅 I'm just ready to kick start the term. I've taken 2 years off from school, so I'm ready to get back into it!

Cheers to a great summer everyone! 🤗😎
