    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.

    The Patient Who Receives No Visits

    I prefer when my patients don't have visitors, makes my job a lot easier! Very good article though because it is so true. We just don't know and sometimes never will. It is sad when pediatrics patients don't have visitors but I agree with those who have already addressed this. Sometimes the parents are the reason they are there. I took care of a child during my clinical that was a victim of child abuse so he had no visitors. He liked to be held and pushed in his stroller so having a student was very good for him. The nurses said they were sick of charting with him on their laps!

    New Grad RN: Home Health or Wait it Out??

    I was in the same position a year ago! I was nervous I would be limiting myself but it's been a year and I am no closer to finding a job in acute care. Thank god I took the job, I would be waiting tables right now otherwise. Take it and continue to look.

    payscales are secrets huh?

    A lot of hospitals won't discuss pay until the interview and some until you actually have a job offer. I have never seen pay discussed in a job posting, I think you are spoiled in that aspect. If you do a search on AN you may be able to find out what people are making in certain areas, even specific hospitals.

    Tele nurse looking for a cath lab position

    I have heard those jobs are VERY hard to get. Do you have any kind of "in" at the cath lab at your hospital since you work so closely with them?

    Starting to feel a little bummed out about finding a summer job.

    Have you tried applying for jobs as something other than an aide? I know that would be the best job to have but if you could work for dietary or transport at least you would be in the hospital and an internal applicant if something came else up.
