  1. COVID

    WE have been the ones wearing PPE; sweating; watching our coworkers fall ill; picking up extra shifts; crying wherever no-one sees us; telling families their loved ones will die; fighting until the end. As nurses we must stand together at our facilit...
  2. New Nurses - DON'T TRAVEL

    So, we have had travel nurses who have been nurses for ~6 months and have started traveling because the rates have gone insane. HOW DARE YOU!! I understand there are anomalies to any system given the right circumstances but you have no business trave...

  5. How I Made $93,000 My First Year of Nursing

    Yes! If you are a brand new nurse nd wanting to come to Texas, I would recommend a big hospital in Dallas to get a massive amount of skills. You will be running almost very night but you will he thankful if you ever decide to go to a smaller hospital...
  6. How I Made $93,000 My First Year of Nursing

    It's me again, I live in Texas and when I started my rent was 550 a month. So for my region this is wicked great for a brand new nurse! If this gives anyone context, in California you can make a killing but the rent I heard is super high! I also paid...

  8. If I hate my CNA job should I still pursue nursing?

    CORRECTION**** "Does not allow GNs to practice"
  14. New Grad feeling like I can't do anything right!

    I'm brand new too and being oriented to a surgical, med surg and cardiovascular ICU. So I know how you feel, my preceptor told me she is expecting me to make mistakes and I have. Although, she doesn't wait until the next day to tell me. She pulls me ...
