    new job

    Don't start a new job until after your vacation. Expecting a month off almost immediately will hurt your chances of getting hired. Use the last three months of being in your old job to do all the due diligence you can manage about possible new jobs. Research potential employers, see if there are any short-term certs you can work on, etc. Actively make time for healthy distractions so you don't focus on being at the job you dislike during this time. Three months- in the grand scheme of things- is not a long time.

    See OP's last sentence. (Not sure if it was edit/added after your response.)

    Another lost new grad

    What are you basing your nursing shortage assertion on?

    Im so indecisive

    It's tempting to stay in the familiar (healthcare) even when it's miserable. Maybe don't look at it like an all-or-nothing. You can work part-time as an LPN to keep your foot in all the while training/studying for something different. Or, let the military give you your training for free!

    The Stigma of Men in Nursing

    Agreed! It seems like there's no "there there" when this issue is brought up. Even if there is some validity, there are many more pressing issues facing the field of nursing.
  6. I don't believe that 72 hrs + one day at $2 hr (if you don't end up coming in) is full time. And yes, while per diem staff are scheduled ahead of time, they are also be asked to pick up last minutes shifts. Of course it's not a guarantee that they can, but at least having a pool increases the chance of being able to cover the staffing shortage.
  7. You essentially want staff to give up one of their hard earned days off for $2/hr and the high chance of having to work? Ah, no. People who have put in their time aren't responsible to staff the hospital on their days off. That's what per diem, float pools and agencies are for...

    All these nurses writing articles

    And the JC charges your facility quite a bit for that level of quality, well-conceived oversight...

    Is Nursing a Profession?

    I've heard it guarantees more paperwork and meetings though.

    All these nurses writing articles

    Well, these commissions and accreditation bodies need to justify their existence. So they pick an "urgent" cause du jour and focus on that like it's emergent. Then they move on to the next one. That way there's always something for them to be needed for...
  12. At the very broadest, start by identifying a particular health education need of the community and then outline a strategy/plan to help meet that need. But yeah, it would help if you posted what instructions you had along with asking this question...

    Millennial Nurses Have Issues

    The category of article is mostly a misnomer on this site. Frequently what I read here is a short essay or opinion piece.

    Preparing to get my BSN

    Why do you phrase it like "BSNs" are a separate species? They are RNs who happen to have a bachelor's degree. Yes, it gives you more potential job mobility and opportunities, but there's no secret indoctrination ceremony in which you're taught a really cool handshake...

    Quit my CNA Job ???!

    Maybe work for a home health agency in the meantime? The money will still be measly, but the caseload is limited by definition...
