  1. I’m so tired. I’m exhausted. I don’t want to be a bedside nurse any more. I worked ICU for a little over a year when I graduated. I now work in the NICU and have been there for going on 6 years. I went back to school and got my MSN in nursing administration and MBA. However, I cannot find a job. I am not looking for something like case management or utilization review. You don’t need an advanced degree for that. I have put a lot of time and money into my education and really want to use it. Please don’t be rude to me. I’m only looking for options and advice. What is something I can look for to find a job where I can use my degrees? I have my own business and have for years, which is why I got the MBA, but it seems like no one cares about that. I have done relief charge on occasion as well. I also did a year on the code team/RRT. What is something that pays well and will utilize me for my actual skills?

    Post MSN question

    So, I will have my MSN in administration and a MBA next year. I’m trying to keep my options open and would like as many opportunities as I can possibly get. I was wondering if I had to go through a nurse practitioner track in order to go through a post MSN certification course that would grant me my PMHNP? I’m not sure if this is possible so I figured you guys would know.

    Recommendations? Help please!

    Hi, I currently work at a hospital and it's not the greatest. I'm looking for a new place to work. I really love psych, but I have no psych experience. I am currently working in ICU and it's okay. I actually don't mind the job, but the hospital I work for is horrendous. Has anyone ever worked at Eastern State Hospital? If so, what is the pay like? Insurance? Any recommendations on where to apply for an ICU position making decent pay?
  4. So, I have a question, but I wasn't sure where to ask it. I've been working at a hospital now for 6 months. I was in orientation for three of those months and the whole time they bounced me back and forth from days and put me with whoever when it came to a preceptor. I hated it, but I convinced myself that it would get bette. I kept hearing horror stories about this hospital, but I blew it off. I think I should have listened. Now, I'm on night shift, but I wanted days. I was told I could bid on a job when one became available. So, I knew the travelers contracts were about to be up and I could bid on it. When the jobs were never posted I asked about it and they told me that they had those jobs reserved for the travel nurses. Thris is makes no sense why they wouldn't want their staff nurses in an available position before offering it up to a new traveler and paying them double. Whatever. Now, every other day that I'm off, they try to call me in and get mad if I don't answer the phone. Note: I'm not on call. They gave me my schedule for the month and I received a text today with a new picture of my schedule and it was all completely different. I only had 2 days that were still the days I was supposed to work. I can't make plans. I can't make appointments. I can't do anything. I feel like I'm. A slave for this place. I'm so depressed, but I can't move until June since I signed a lease for a year. The travelers can get any day they want off and they make us pick up the slack. I don't quite get it. Also, we were supposed to have switched over to computer charting and it's never happened so that just adds to the mess. The hospital also had a position available in the higher up department. A staff nurse who had been there for years applied for it. They didn't give it to her. Instead, they have it to a traveler who didn't even apply for it. Can someone please give me some advice or words of encouragement?
