    Such thing as too late to negotiate?

    I work in a clinic within a hospital. It is still considered outpatient and I am paid as such. I came from the floor and took a significant pay cut. Are you required to do nights/weekends/holidays? The low rate could be attributed to that. It doesn’t...

    New job resume help

    I haven't posted in a while but I have a question. I am thinking about applying for a clinic job, I currently work on an inpatient pediatric floor. The clinic is within my hospital and it would be the same kiddos I already see every day. How far bac...

    New Graduate RN in Boston

    When I graduated I could not find anything in acute care. After applying everywhere I was finally was offered a job in pediatric private duty. It actually paid pretty well and was full time. They are for the most part stable kids/adults so it wasn't ...

    Pts doing illegal stuff while in hospital

    We found a patient smoking marijuana in his bathroom. We had another patient that was found with heroin in her room, went out front and bought it. Apparently you can buy drugs outside our hospital!

    Should pts w/ + sputum cultures be on droplet precautions?

    Second interview, same manager

    Thanks, I do want to clarify this is not a second interview in the traditional sense. I interviewed back in November for a part-time position. It will be the same manager though so I guess it kind of is a second interview. I'll keep you posted. I am ...

    Unemployed New Nurses Would Be Wise To Remember These Equations

    While not a "specialty" to some, I was able to land a job on a post-surgical floor in a teaching hospital after a year in peds private duty.

    Why Do I Care?

    It was a lot easier to get a job in the specialty you wanted 10 years ago. People now are desperate and take whatever job they can which sometimes results in them not liking it/looking for a new job shortly after being hired.

    Giving report

    I am all for preparing for a shift but get there early and do that on your own time.

    Full-time to part-time

    It is a benefited position, more expensive of course than what I pay as a full-time employee but I could make it work. Ideally I would stay with my current facility as per-diem then I could work there if I can't pick up any shifts past the 24 I am g...

    Full-time to part-time

    I had an interview today for a position in the specialty I have been trying to get into since graduation. It is at a great facility, pay is better, the only problem is it is only 24 hours. I don't know what to do. The manager said there would be hour...
